|Choosing the best location for family photos can be a daunting task. Things to consider when thinking about where to have your family photos are, the age of the child(ren), the personality of the family, and the time of year.
I love that Koren, Jacob, and Charlotte decided to have their session at Steps Beach. It's the perfect place for letting little Charlotte be carefree and playful. Koren, Jacob, and Charlotte definitely have a "beachy" personality and don't mind getting their feet wet and, when it's summer, it's hard to find a better place than a Nantucket beach!
For the past several years I have photographed them there, and now, when I go back and look at their previous sessions, I love to see the growth and change in Charlotte with that sweet little smile of hers that just keeps getting cuter and cuter.
And, although we wind up at the beach, we love to start out on the "hydrangea driveway" right next to Steps! It takes on a new look each time we're there and fits Koren, Jacob, and Charlotte perfectly!
Thank you all for being so wonderful to photograph ~ cheers to the next time! xoxo
|I am still amazed at the difference in Tate! He has grown so much since I photographed him last year!
Each year, since Tate was so very little, I have had the honor to photograph him, with his parents, on the beautiful island of Nantucket. I have treasured each and every session when I get to be with Amy, Brett, and Tate in so many beautiful locations.
I love how much they value professional photography. Having these moments captured year after year provides them with plenty of great memories to look back on and smile about for years to come. Family photos have the power to transport you back to that moment in time when you could watch your son climb a tree or snuggle into your lap. These moments can be fleeting but having professional photographs ensures that you can look back on these times over and over again.
Amy, Brett, and Tate, thank you all SO much for trusting me to give you these lasting memories. I look back on all our sessions together with such gratitude :)

|"The memories we make with our family is everything"
This is one of my favorite sessions with one of my favorite families. I still can't believe it was the first time we met. I was instantly comfortable and having fun with Kim, Clint, Bella, and of course, Nellie.
They took me to a beach they love on a perfect night. I felt like we had it all to ourselves. That's one of the things I love about beaches in the Hamptons, they're never packed when I'm there photographing and the sand and the light are spectacular!
Bella would soon be heading off to college after our session so it was extra important to capture this time together while she was still home.
Even though parents know the day is coming, it's a big transition to see their child starting a new chapter in their lives. I understand this and know that these photos will always remind Kim, Clint, and Bella of this time together and their love for each other.
Thank you all for being so wonderful to be with and photograph. Bella, I know you are headed into an amazing future!
|Cuteness overload headed your way!
Sara, Jeff, Riley & Reese were beyond incredible to photograph! We met at Bartlett Arboretum & Gardens in Stamford, CT. Everything was perfect - the weather, the light, the landscape, but especially the family! The playfulness and smiles were ideal and their clothing was on point.
I always tell everyone to pick three or four colors and tie them in together - not to match outfits exactly but rather, tie the colors together so it looks more natural. It looks great when everyone's clothing works well together. The emphasis then becomes the relationships and faces of those in the portrait. Sara, you nailed it on the clothing! The love on all your faces truly stands out!
Thank you all for being so amazing to photograph and such a joy to be with! I look forward to seeing you again. :)
|Family photography is an amazing business to be in. I am in a constant state of gratitude for the ability to do what I do and serve in this way. I am welcomed into my clients homes and made to feel part of the family. It is never lost on me how important these photos that I take are in the history of each family I serve.
Courteney and Josh, I can't thank you enough for letting me document this stage in your lives. Your two boys are absolutely precious and growing WAY too fast! It literally feels like just the other day when I was photographing Remy for his baby session and look how big he's become!
You all have so much love between you and it was an honor for me to be in the midst of it!
