Recently I had the honor of photographing this beautiful family on the coast of Rye, New Hampshire. It was one of the most perfectly lit beach locations I have used, and I can’t wait to plan another session there- the light is EVERYTHING to a photographer!
I met Mary a few years ago now, as she is also a photographer herself. She has since decided to work full-time in her family’s business The Pine Outlet– which I loved learning all about over dinner before our session.
As a motherhood focused photographer, the majority of my portraits are most often Maternity and Newborn sessions, but I really loved the different perspective of capturing a mother with her children who were older- and looking specifically for those special moments of connection that could happen naturally.
When Mary reached out to me about her session, she wrote, “I find my connection growing with my girls more and more each year as they grow into their own and begin to face challenges of growing up and the real world. I’d like portraits to reflect on that. As well as portraits to reflect standing side-by-side with Mike through 20 years with both highs and lows. I would cherish seeing us through your lens.”
As the last of the dreamiest light faded and we headed back to our cars, I remember feeling so grateful to have spent the evening doing what I love most in the world- capturing timeless black and white photographs of a mother and her babies- knowing her girls would hopefully treasure these beyond measure in the decades to come.
I photographed their family portraits using both digital and medium format film. Here are just a few of my very favorites from our time together.
