This was my last Beach Session of the year. It was a perfect September day here in New England where it was still warm enough to walk barefoot on the beach but cool enough to wear sweaters and jeans. Perfect Indeed! This Amazing Beautiful Mom confessed that she was feeling sentimental. It was that time of year where Summer was over and Fall was beginning. Her son was back in school and she was realizing how quickly he was growing and time was passing. The change of seasons often represent changes in our lives that are not always easy to accept. But they can become easier if we focus on how blessed we are in the present and what great things we can expect in the future to come.
It wouldn’t have been enough for me to simply capture the perfectly posed smiling portrait for this family. I really wanted to leave Mom with the memory of how fantastic, fun, loving, and in her words “sentimental” these times were for the three of them and what a small preview this day was of how many more memories she has to look forward to. To do that we had a blast capturing snuggles, smiles, kisses, silly faces, piggy backs, playing in the leaves, and a sunset walk on the beach. This mom sure knows how blessed she is with these two great guys in her life. She is the center of their world.
Check out the session album I designed for this family
70 High Schoolers in 48 Hours. I had so much fun photographing the students at Three Rivers Middle College. These kids are so great and I loved the way their portraits came out. Changing the face of school portraits, we used the natural surrounds and architecture of the school grounds for their portrait backgrounds instead of tacky old backdrops in a school cafeteria with forced smiles and cheesy poses. The kids were so surprised and happy with their sessions and their portraits. I can’t wait for next year.
I have room for one more school in 2021 so if your looking to change your school photographer feel free to contact me.
