Chance and luck are strange things. For example, it was my great luck that I got to work with this Nashua NH family when they took a chance on a raffle supporting breast cancer and won a photography session with me. I’m not sure who the greatest winner was between us, but I’d hasten to say, I feel very lucky to now know this family and have had the pleasure to take their family portraits. After dodging the New England weather and waiting for the snow to clear, we made a date and met at the lovely Benson’s Park in Hudson for some lake-front portraits. I’ve shot many times at this location, but this was my first time taking it lake-front. Wow! What a great backdrop for this gorgeous family!
I had so much fun capturing these Quincy tween siblings for their family photo session. This brother and sister are just gorgeous, and could have stepped right out of the pages of the latest designer clothing catalog. Mom has shared with me how excited they were for their photo shoot, secretly passing along that they felt like they were models. As they should! We met in downtown Wakefield at a park with a really cool bandstand and lake – a photographer’s dream for options! We quickly got to work and they had so much fun posing together. You can just tell this family has a great relationship. They had an easy air between them and readily flung their arms around each other.
The fall leaves were at peak color adding lovely yellows and oranges to our backdrop.
Right now Lauren still has the height advantage over her brother Jackson but, it won’t be long before he catches her up. I just love this connection here between them. So did mom and she ordered this back-to-back pose in a large print.
Aren’t they just gorgeous? There are definitely great genes running in this family!
I had a great time working with these two being a little older than some of my clients’ kids. Don’t get me wrong, I love the energy required for working with young children, but sometimes it’s nice to have your subjects to be fairly still for you.
Except when they’re not still…..
I really enjoy incorporating some of the more interesting parts of a location into my photos – you may recall when I used this retro gas station for a senior session here. These canons were so cool, and of course, completely appropriate to a New England family photo session.
Jackson is one of my favorite young men – he’s really into music and dancing and loves to go to concerts. He does a mean Michael Jackson impersonation.
Lauren has a great aptitude for sports – she plays on a baseball and soccer team. She loves spending time with her friends and shopping! Well, who wouldn’t?
As you can see from this small sample, we got a great variety of shots which all looked perfect in the 10×10 heirloom album I designed for them. I know for sure that Lauren and Jackson’s extended family had some lovely photography items under their tree this Christmas!
