As a child, I looked forward to summer vacations on the Cape every year. It wasn't necessarily where we went, though I love that salty air, but it was about with whom I spent my time. My family would pack up and stay with an aunt and uncle and two cousins at their cabin in Wellfleet. Sometimes, my grandparents would come by as well. Each year we were a little older, but not much changed. It was comforting to see those same sights.
When I got the chance to do an extended family session at Onset Beach, I was thrilled! Everyone gathering together on summer vacation gave me a warm sense of nostalgia. I hope that when this lovely family looks over their images year after year, they have that same sense of nostalgia as well.
It is always a pleasure to photograph our good friends, Olivia and Charlotte! We had quite the rainy week but got some sun before Olivia was off on vacation with her dad! We headed over to Seekonk to get a nice mini session at the meadows, amongst the flowers.
Here is Olivia, the soon-to-be third grader! She looks so grown up. I think that happens to third graders ...
Charlotte loved the freedom of the meadow and was quite content to run...and run! She wasn't interested in stopping to smell the flowers with all the space around her. That two year old is on the go (and thought I was crazy to make her do otherwise)!
Older newborns can be a challenge to photograph. They are just starting to explore the world with their hands and feet, they like to stay alert for longer periods, and they aren't as easily manipulated while asleep. So, while an older newborn session may not flow the same as a baby between 3-10 days old, they provide variety to the traditional newborn session.
William came to KM Photography at 7 weeks old. He was very happy to lay on the floor and look around. His curious eyes would light up as mom played with him on the floor. We even got some nice smiles! He wasn't thrilled about leaving Mom and Dad's arms while asleep...he knows just where he wants to be...but we eventually got him in a deep enough sleep to not realize he had left their arms. Here are some of our favorites from William's session.
Welcome to the world, little guy!
I am a photographer in Plainville, MA serving southeastern Massachusetts, RI, and southern NH. I have a deep passion for capturing memories. Each photograph freezes a moment in time so that it may never be forgotten. I hope to create legacies that tell stories for generations.
