Feature | May 2019 | Yankee Magazine

Earlier this year I had to absolute pleasure of photographing my dear friend and colleague, Sara of Sara Fitz in her cozy coastal home currently featured in Yankee Magazine. While all the credit goes too Sara for creating the subjects that photograph so beautifully, I can’t help but to get a little giddy seeing my name and photos in print and thinking. “I made that.” In case you aren’t in the local Yankee Magazine distribution area, I’ll give you a sneak peek. Click here if you’d like to check out the full article to learn more about Sara and see additional photos.

 

 

Family portraits are some of the best keepsakes – at least in our minds! We are so lucky to be able to capture all the laughter of families at their Nantucket family beach portraits. Sometimes, we get even luckier and we get the pleasure of seeing the same families year after year! It’s important to document these early years in life, all too quickly babies grow into toddlers, to big kids and then to teenagers.

One of our annual portraits includes this adorable family and their sweet black lab, Lucy. Every year we meet them at a different Nantucket beach, roll around in the sand and laugh so hard it hurts.  With these fun loving parents, super sweet boys and with their sparkling green eyes you can see why we look forward to every August with them!

Here’s a fun look back at the last few years – look how they’ve grown!

And speaking of summer – our summer calendar for Nantucket beach portraits and Maine beach portraits is filling up fast! Contact the studio to schedule your summer family portrait session!

Here at the studio, we can’t believe April is more than half way over! This means, we’re closer to summer, weddings and family portraits, but it also means that school’s almost out! We’ve started booking summer senior portrait sessions for Maine and Nantucket, isn’t it time you book yours? Booking us for your senior portrait session is fun and very different than the more traditional and posed options most high schools offer. We love on location photography – the beach, a park, the forest, your favorite place – it’s what makes your portrait your own! We’ve also been pinning some examples of our work on our senior portraits on our Pinterest board and we also have a whole board dedicated to Senior Portrait Style in case you can’t decide what to wear! (It can be tough sometimes!) So if you’ve booked your Nantucket family vacation or your coastal Maine summer vacation, give us a call or drop us a line and let’s schedule your summer senior session!

So far our “month of love” has included couples to-be-wed, our Valentine’s and my very own Flanagan Farm wedding is coming soon! – but today we’re here to share another kind of love – the love of family.

Family beach portraits are a favorite of ours; and what’s great about them is that they’re fun almost any time of year. Warm days make way for splashing in the waves and cool days make way for cozy cuddling and and eskimo kisses. See the adorable family below!

Annual family portraits capture moments you’re going to want to remember  – from babies to toddlers to teens – these smiles and memories will be cherished forever.
