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.

Cheers to all the moms out there! Happy Mother’s Day!
There is no denying how much we LOVE beach portraits but it’s even more exciting when the family has a special connection to the beach where we photograph! Generations of this family have gathered right in this very spot, at this very beach cottage and we were thrilled to capture just a glimpse of this moment in their family time at Wells Beach. And what a night!
I always say that the hardest part about family photos is just getting everyone together in the same place! When everyone lives in a different part of the country it can be so hard! So when Kelly reached out about family photos for her extended family during their visit to Kennebunkport I was excited! I met them right at the home they rented on the water (this location!) and we gathered for some fun and low key photos on the beach. What could be better than family photos on the beach after sipping some wine around the fire together!
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.
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!
