It is such an honor, and such an incredible thing to witness, seeing new families created, and getting to have a camera out with them during these brand new, sometimes exhausting, over the moon happy days. Mark + Jennifer just welcomed their first child, son Dylan this spring during this unique time we are living in with the Covid19 pandemic. They have handled everything so well, and have remained so calm and steady in probably the biggest milestone in life… parenthood during this crazy time. Thankfully they’ve had a little haven down in Cape Cod, Massachusetts to sequester too, and slow down and focus on this little blessing they’ve just been given. We met up at Paines Creek Beach near their home, and got to capture the three of them in the place they love, Cape Cod. Welcome to this crazy, wonderful world baby Dylan!
Everyone who knows me, especially those who have been a client before… knows how much I love the month of May, and that small window when we can do Apple Blossom sessions! I start driving by the orchards May 1st, and they are usually peaking with the white blossoms in mid May, but it can vary. Applecrest Farm Orchards in Hampton Falls, New Hampshire is my favorite local farm and has the best of everything in my opinion including rows upon rows of apple trees! Kelsey + Michael met me there along with their two kids Benton and Eloise to do a session amongst the gorgeous blooms. I remember when Benton was born… wasn’t it just yesterday? It is just so crazy how fast time flies. Eloise is the most elegant, calm, sweetest little girl ever, and as you can see my camera loved her! And to top it off, we went inside the farmstead and got some cider donuts to enjoy!
Oh how I have loved getting to take pictures of the Goldberg family over the years. I just can’t believe how fast kids grow, even though I have the same predicament with my three kids and how they keep getting older! Ha! Amanda had told me about this beach spot that not many know about near Hampton Beach, NH, and that it had beautiful sand and sand dunes. WOW, what a beautiful spot! And not very many people there! Everett & Myra were loving being there at what would have been close to bed time, and we walked all around the sand dunes and that sand just felt so amazing on our feet. Harry always get the husband award, always so cheerful and happy to be doing family pictures (again)! 🙂
Oh the views of Lake Winnipesaukee!! If you haven’t been there before, you’ve got to make a trip there someday. I met up with Joel + Sarah, and their three kiddos Jacqueline, Paul & Audrey this afternoon, and it went from sunny to threatening thunderstorms in a hurry. We moved quickly, and it actually created the most beautiful colors in the sky. We had fun laughing and running from place to place on the lake that they loved before the rain inevitably came. The Cohen family comes here every summer and it is a place with lots of special memories for them. These are the kind of sessions I love. Outdoor in a gorgeous backdrop with some adventure sprinkled in.
I am not sure I have met a sweeter O N E year old little girl then Claire. She was the cutest, most gentle little spirit, and was just so cooperative and happy to be having her picture taken. Her parents were the same way, and they were the kind of family you walk away from and just think that the world is lucky to have such good people like the Gleason family in it. Claire is just starting to stand and walk, and has such great balance already. Especially while eating an apple! Scroll down to see more!
