I feel like it’s been a long time since my last post when really, it was just a couple of weeks ago! Well, I am back and I am so excited to share this extended family session with you! You may remember Caitlyn and Chris from their engagement session in Boston and their wedding day at the Chatham Bars Inn, and if you don’t- take a look here and here! I loved getting to capture those two big milestones in their life and I was so excited that Caitlyn contacted me to capture another milestone with their family!
Their session was in West Yarmouth, which I just loved every minute! The Cape Cod beaches will NEVER get old to me. Even if I am there for 2 hours max during a session, I love every second of being there doing the thing I love. This family was just so great to work with. I loved their coordinated nautical outfit choices and it was so nice I got to meet 2 more members of their family- Baby Nora (3 months) and Baby Jack who is almost a year this August! We had a great time and I can not wait to see them all again soon!
Caitlyn, Chris, Jack, Scott, Kristin, Skylar, Kayden, John, Sarah, James, Nora, Jim, Claudia- Thank you so much for inviting me to your Cape Cod home and trusting me to capture these images of your family. I hope that these bring a smile to your faces when you see them and remember how perfect your vacation was here at this house, on this beach, with each other. Love you guys! xo
This was one of the last photos I took this day. Dad and his two girls. I asked him to “pick a daughter and look at her” and the reaction of who he picked to look at first was hysterical, but then all of a sudden a wave of emotions hit. These are his girls. They are wives. They are mothers. They are daughters and I can only imagine how proud of them he is. .At first I thought I said something to upset him but then I realized that these were happy tears. They were all together. It doesn’t get any better than that. .
It is not everyday I get to capture these precious moments of a new baby with their family! This year seems to be the year of babies and I am just loving it! I met Jen and Jason on their wedding day last summer at Mill Falls at the Lake in Meredith NH. I loved getting to know them and their sweet friends and family then and I was so excited when she reached out and told me they were adding to their family this June! We originally were going to have a fresh 48 session in the hospital, but at times, the hospital can be very busy so it worked out where I was able to come to their home for photos.
Their beautiful daughter Harper was the flower girl in their wedding and she is getting so big! She was so much fun to play with and she was a wonderful helper, a true aspiring photographer I believe! 🙂 Baby Eleanore was just as sweet as can be! She was perfect though out our session, only needing to stop and eat once. She slept the whole time- I think I have a few shots with her eyes open but they were not open for longer than 5 mins. the whole time I was there. Harper is an awesome big sister and did a great job being gentle with her when it was time for them to be together in photos. It was so nice to see Jen and Jason again and I am so excited for them and their newest addition to their little family!
Jen, Jason, Harper and Eleanore, Thank you so much for trusting me to capture these first few days with your new baby girl! It was so much fun and I hope you love these photos as much as I do. I can not wait to see you all again at Gina and Kevin’s wedding this August! xoxo
CUE THE BABY FEVER OVER HERE! Look at this precious little baby, Paige Aryn! She is just the absolute sweetest and made our session together probably the easiest newborn session I’ve ever had! She was just so content to be close to her momma’s. She was snuggly in her baby wraps and swaddle and really just wanted to be in either of her mom’s arms! She melted my heart the whole time and I am not going to lie, my baby fever is in full force while looking at these photos of her!
Baby Paige has 2 fur sisters who you also love her to pieces! Her fur sister Lola wanted to be close by as did her other fur sister, Emma! While we were not with the pups the whole session, we did get a few family photos of them all together at the end which are just adorable! I love it when we can get the dogs in a few shots! They are family too!
Kristin and Alexa, Congratulations on your perfect baby girl! I am so thankful I got to meet her and capture her first 2 weeks of life. She is beautiful and I still can not get over how great she was the whole session! Welcome to the world Paige Aryn! You are loved!
Just a little over a year ago, I saw this beautiful family for Big Brother Jack’s 1st birthday photos. At the time he was not fully walking on his own yet but he was trying! You can view their session here! It’s really cool to go back and look at those photos and see how big Jack got over the last year!
I ran into mom and Jack this past August and shortly after she contacted me for another family session, this time, with their newest addition, Mason! I was so excited to see them all again and to get to meet Mason! He’s absolutely adorable at just 10 days old. Jack is already an awesome big brother and mom and dad couldn’t have looked any happier!
Their session was in Chiltonville, MA. I just love this location for fall photos as the fields there are just so open and the colors have started to change on the trees! Emily said she was hoping to have photos with the fall colors and when she agreed to have their session at Chiltonville I was so excited, I knew they would love it. It was a little windy and cold during their session, but we made it work. Jack and Mason were troopers! We warmed up in the car mid way through their session and then were able to get out and do a few more photos along the path just as the sun was setting so nicely!
Emily, Keith, Jack and Mason I hope you love your fall family photos! I had so much fun spending time with you and I am so happy I got to meet Mason and see how big Jack is! Congratulations on your new little guy! Thank you for trusting me to be your family photographer! Here are some of my favorite photos from our session…although it was very hard to choose! xo.
Another family session post for you all to see! This session took place during sun set at Rexame Beach. It was such a gorgeous night and the sun gave off a beautiful glow! I just love extended family sessions! It’s so nice when a big family can get together for photos and I know it doesn’t happen very often for many! I was so impressed that these guys were able to work out a date for everyone to be there, and I was able to be there as well!
For these images, I edited in 2 different styles. My light and airy approach will at times “blow out” the sky. This night was so pretty and they sky gave off beautiful colors but I am sharing with you the original edits I completed as I just love the glow tones on the family.
Being at the beach is my happy place! I love it when I get to chase kids around and get those authentic smiles! This session as a lot of fun and the kiddos were wonderful!
To the Mullin Family, Thank you so much for trusting me to capture your family photos! It was wonderful meeting you all and I just love the coordinated outfits! Here are just a few of my favorites from our session together!
Family portrait season has begun ( along with a crazy wedding season!) I have been working with this adorable family for over 2 years now and I just LOVE them! You may recognize them from the Motherhood with a Glass of Whine blog. We have had many photo sessions within the last 2 years, Carilyn has been an Ali B Fan and spreads my name all over the place when she can! Many of our sessions have taken place inside of her home. For the longest time, she has mentioned to me about how she really wanted to take the kids to her college campus, Wheaton College, where she attended under grad courses. We were able to buckle down a date and I followed them all around the campus and listened to so many different memories she had.
These kiddos are just the best! They know how I am so they were happy to have their photos taken. I gotta say, its pretty hard to get toddlers to look at you every now and then. Many of these candid style images are my favorites as they clearly show exactly what season this family is in right now.
Carilyn, Seth (we missed you), Andrew, Brooke, Kate and Kiera, Thanks for letting me follow you around and capture images of your amazing little family! I just love everyone so much, getting to watch them grow is an honor and I am so thankful for you guys! Here are just a few favorites from our stroll around your old college campus!
Hi, I’m Alex. I am a lifestyle photographer who absolutely loves her job and everything that comes with it. I appreciate the people I meet, the places I go and everything there is to learn about photography.
