Today I get to share some lovely photos of my cousin Virginia’s stunning family.  I had actually been commissioned to take these portraits by my Grandmommy back when John was born.  But you know how time has it’s way of meddling.  So, fast forward almost three years, and Virginia’s Florida-based family now consists of four!  We decided to squeeze a quick session in before the annual 4th of July party that we all often attend in Falmouth.  Babies were not in their typical relaxed and smiley mood – as vacation often interferes with nap and routine, but Virginia and Steve took it in stride and I think we managed to capture some tender moments and intriguing compositions in the gorgeous scenery we were provided.


For all those foggy beach chasers – I have a treat for you today!  A super friendly family who hail from Andover but wanted to introduce their almost 1 year old son Teddy to the beach.   He loved it!   Even though we had a sort of mean beach cleaner who snapped at us about their other son, dog Tobey, Teddy loved seeing that truck graze the sand 🙂

Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester never disappoints.  For those who are looking for an amazing beach to go to – for portraits or just the day – I honestly am not sure there are any public beaches that beat this one in New England (except, yes, the water is cold!!).


I have to admit, I’m pretty proud by the percentage of my business coming from repeat clients these days.  Not just proud, but pumped – it is always pretty cool to witness my clients grow and change in different ways.

Today I am featuring another repeat client family who has grown from 3 to 4.  They also no longer live in Beacon Hill, deciding to move out of Boston to Melrose (see their session to commemorate their final summer in the city here).  This town has great schools, is close to Boston and super convenient to 93 (so if you often head up north to New Hampshire like this family does, it’s cluch) AND sits on the expansive, scenic Middlesex Fells reservation.  It seems a good fit for this active and outdoorsy bunch.

For this session mom and dad just wanted me to capture their whole gang chilling at home (listening/dancing to dad playing the guitar, playing in the backyard) and going for a morning walk to the Fells.  Just another beautiful session of a beautiful family – easy-peasy ; )
