I first met Devin + Kaelene at a wedding I was second shooting for, and my first thought was that they were the cutest couple ever! Kaelene was so friendly, so incredibly nice, and clearly gorgeous! She was at the wedding supporting her boyfriend Devin who is a very talented videographer. Throughout the afternoon, I just watched them both and saw that they just were the sweetest team. And as if they couldn’t be any cuter, they recently just got a golden retriever they named Canon, and he is SO cute! I should probably go back and count how many times I said the word cute in this post, but if you scroll down you will see why!
These pictures from the other night needed a permanent place on my blog because it was just a random evening where my husband and his brothers, along with their wives and kids and I met up at Hampton Beach State Park in Hampton, New Hampshire because it was 75 degrees on a November evening! It sure felt good to feel the sand between our toes, and feel that warm breeze. And some of the kids (who clearly are born and raised New Englanders)… thought it was also warm enough to swim! Brrr! My sister in laws really have been there from the start of my photography business, letting me learn to use a camera with their families, and these kids are still my favorite subjects. 9 blonde haired, blue eyed little cousins all within 8 years!
Met up with Melanie and Mike over at Plaice Cove in Rye, NH for a little family beach session at golden hour before summer comes to a close. Audrey & Sawyer were troopers, and although it was nearing bedtime, we got to explore some tide pools, and watch the sun go down while squeezing in a few pictures. I am not sure there is anything more adorable then sandy toes, especially ones with pink toe nail polish on a little girl with braided pig tails. 🙂
Met up with my dear friend Sandra and her family of Newton, MA for some time together with our families on an unseasonably warm day at York Beach in York, ME. Sandra always calls Chip her “joy baby,” and as you can tell from these pictures, this is one special little boy. Full of smiles, and just the happiest little guy around! Chip is turning ONE in just a few weeks, so we wanted to capture him and take some fun ONE year old pictures. He made this so easy, and as you can tell, the camera loves him!
One thing friends of mine will tell you about me, is that my happy place during the summer months is Cape Cod and the Islands. The raw beauty of the incredibly beautiful beaches, and adorable beach houses with shaker style siding, ice cream options on every corner, and just the most beautiful sunsets you’ll ever see! It is truly my favorite place to be in the summertime. Here are a few pictures from our last week in Chatham’s Lighthouse beach!
