Stop. Soak it in. Summer is still here… breathe the salt air and hold on to it tight.
Meet Sara, Miles and their adorable boys! We spent a little time together on Parson’s Beach in Kennebunk this Spring taking a few casual family portraits. I have had the pleasure of working with Sara on many photography projects but being able to photograph her family was by far my favorite! She is the artists behind Sara Fitz, a watercolor stationery studio based in York, Maine. Her work is classically New England in style and is highly coveted in the wedding world for her amazing invitation sets. She recently relaunched the company with her husband after a short break to spend time raising her boys and I was able to photograph all of her new designs, her gorgeous studio and her family for the website relaunch! (more on all of that in another blog post) Today I wanted to share their family beach session. It’s so important to keep sessions easy for the kids making time to play, explore, and just be themselves! It’s at the heart of what we love about beach portraits!
The days are getting longer and the temperatures are rising and we are getting excited to see all our family portrait clients again! It’s that time of the year for booking your beach session and as we catch up with our clients and schedule their portraits for this Summer we can’t help but think about our sessions from the years past. I can’t wait to see how much these cuties have grown!
The moments in between always end up being the sweetest for our family beach portraits.
There are so many wonderful moments that you expect to happen during a wedding; a beautiful bride walking down the aisle, your first kiss as a married couple, photos with your family and friends, your first dance…but some of our favorite moments are the ones you can’t plan for. There are so many details that don’t make it onto a shot list for the day. We have an eye for these details and we take notice of who and what is important to you on your wedding day. Having those unexpected little moments documented will always remind you what your wedding day felt like, not just what it looked like.
It seems like Spring has come early here in New England, honestly if we can’t have snow I would rather it be warm and sunny! We’ve already logged several beach walks and it’s only March! We can’t wait for all that Summer in New England brings including family beach portraits! I can’t think of a better way to honor your family time together. This sweet family was visiting from California for an East Coast wedding and took some time to relax in Kennebunkport and celebrate their little guy’s first birthday. We met at Parson’s Beach (a favorite spot year round) for a quick session. How cute is he?!?! When planning for your Summer get togethers a family portrait session should always be on the list!
All you need is love and someone to photograph it.
The weather in New England is FINALLY getting warmer and that has us excited for family beach portraits! We still have a couple of weeks until the official start of Summer vacation but now is the time to start thinking about your family portraits. We offer on location sessions in Southern Maine as well as Nantucket. Get in touch to secure your session date and talk about location ideas!
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!
