HO HO HO! I was SO thrilled when Jessie reached out to me for some last minute pictures in time for Christmas, and before baby #3 arrives. We had an unseasonably warm December day, so we hopped over to Hampton Beach State Park in Hampton, New Hampshire for some fun and to sneak in some portraits to document this sweet season in their family! They are expecting baby #3 in February, and whether this baby is a sweet brother, or a little sister, one thing is for sure, it will be surrounded by love, and welcomed into one of the warmest, most loving families I have ever worked with! I am just going to put my guess in here, but I think GIRL!
Meet the Parrish family. I met them over at Wagon Hill Farm in Durham, New Hampshire, on a gorgeous fall evening last week. We had lots of sunshine right at golden hour, but also lots of wind! When they walked up I thought, goodness, they are one of those families who should be in a magazine! Not only were they absolutely beautiful, Colt and Callie were the sweetest sibling pair with the happiest little spirits. Both just smiled and despite the wind were just precious. And Mom + Dad, still have a sweet spark that the pictures clearly show. What a lovely, lovely family.
I look forward to Fall Mini Sessions every year! It is so fun to see how much kids have grown in just a years time, and to see my returning families year after year, and to hear all the life updates and stories that go with them. 2020 was a unique year for us all, and it was so good to see families still connected, still smiling, and still HAPPY together through all of the hurdles Covid brought into our lives. The families pictured below are real, wholesome, happy, and have a light that shines through it all. I love each and everyone of them!
Oh the Goldberg family! They are just as sweet as they are absolutely adorable. I love getting to see my friend Amanda and her kids every year when we do some family photos! She is the kindest soul, the best Mama, and the world is brighter with her in it. And when my husband sees their session each year, he reminds me that Harry has the most awesome beard ever! Ha ha! Love this family!!
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…
