It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I love the Christmas Tree farm Mini’s that I do every year, and just love the classic look that each session produces. We all love those Christmas card photos, and this round of Mini Sessions each year does not disappoint. And add in that golden hour glow, and you’ve got perfection!
No words can ever adequately describe what a special person, and friendship I have been blessed with by my friend Lisa. She is one of a kind, with the biggest heart, she loves like no other, and always inspires me to live my best life, all with grace and also FUN. She is always my adventure buddy, the kind you text the morning of with a random idea, and who always says “yes lets do it!” Lisa + Justin have the kind of family that you just love to be around. Our kids are the same ages, so everybody always has a playmate. We thought that meeting up at the beach was the right spot for them, because well… we both love the Cape and making annual trips to there or Nantucket together with our families every summer. What could be better? It was so nice to see the sand dunes at Hampton Beach State Park before summer comes to an official close. We also made sure to grab some ice cream on the beach after to celebrate! Love them dearly.
When Miranda reached out to schedule a portrait session with her two daughters Poppy & Rosie, oh my I knew they were going to once again be the cutest trio! The last time I saw them they both had little stuffed bunnies they carried everywhere, and Ro was still drinking a bottle! Where does the time go? Miranda is an incredible Mom, one of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet… and she’s fun loving, she’s soooo attentive to them, and you just know she is going to give them the world. Those precious girls will know they are LOVED by her fiercely. We met up in Hampton Falls, and stopped over at Applecrest Orchards at golden hour to catch some smiles and cuddles. We were surprised by the beautiful sunflower fields that are so big this year, so naturally we had to take some pictures there too. Such a fun evening, and fall is certainly in the air…
Mel + Nate are two of the most fun loving, hilarious, down to earth couples you’ll ever meet! I met Mel a few years ago when she was going through a lot of changes in her life, and we stayed friends via social media. I kid you not, every single thing she would post would literally make me laugh out loud! She is SO funny. I even told myself, Melissa, you can’t like everything she posts, she will think you are a weirdo! Ha! I keep telling her she needs a blog because my goodness she is just so raw and real, and I just think she’s so great. And she reached out again for pictures, so clearly she doesn’t think Im that weird… But in all seriousness, her and Nate have a beautiful blended family, with 3 kids, Audrey, Sawyer and Jackson, and the cutest little french bulldog named Patty Cakes. She seriously needs her own hashtag, she’s so stinkin cute! Anyway, here are a few fun pictures of when we met at Colby Farm in Newbury, MA to see the most breathtaking sunflower fields in all the land!
I am not sure I have ever met a more stunningly beautiful trio of sisters in all my life! When Alyssa contacted me to do family pictures with her parents and her sisters and their spouses, I never imagined how adorable they would all be! Silas is the only baby at the moment in the family, and as you can tell he was the apple of everyone’s eye. He is just a little love! We walked around the Charles River in Boston, MA on a mild winter day. The backdrop of Beacon Street and the bridges there will always be a favorite spot in the city. Especially at Christmas time. Not only is this family beautiful on the outside, they are some of the kindest, most fun loving people I have ever met. Merry Christmas Howe family!
