Last week, I drove down to the South Shore. I secretly love going down there because then I get to stop at Legacy Place. I’m not sure about anyone else but shopping myself is a luxury. Before my shopping stop, I met up with this sweet family to capture their newborn daughter Penelope for this beautiful photography session.
As a photographer, I love meeting new families but also getting to see so many parts of the state. I’m from western New York, and I love exploring Massachusetts and coming up with trips to do with my family. The other day Marc talked about not getting into Boston enough but I feel like I’m always in the city exploring. This family lives up in Newburyport in a gorgeous home. We bounced around the house a little bit but the first photo below is one of my favorites from their session.
When I arrived, dad was sitting watching TV with the baby on his lap. The window were to the right streaming in light – you can even see a small bright spot on this head. I love how his hands are curled up around him. What makes it so special is that it is them and not something I set up. This is something that I try to look for at every session – a gesture or touch that is unique to each family.
If you scroll down, we also wrapped up the newborn in this beautiful, blue, hand knitted blanket. The color is so vibrant and just beautiful. Other photographers are surprised I don’t bring much with me but there are always gems like this around people’s homes. Even if it wasn’t made for the baby, I can usually find texture or color to utilize.
Receiving this in an email made my day.
“Oh. My. God. I just LOVE all the photos! I love how you captured our family in such a natural way. I often feel so different looking at us in pictures because we put on a good camera smily face than when we are off the camera. Just love your style and how you were able to capture such precious moments.”
I loved seeing this family again. We first met during a fall mini session and then they got in touch earlier in the year for a newborn session. The light in every room for so different and I love the different types of images we could create. Their toddler son really loves his little baby sister and it was so sweet capturing their connection.
