A few weeks ago I took a trip to Boston and decided to head up to New Hampshire to photograph and spend some time with Samantha and her adorable son, Henry, as well as her amazing family. If you’re thinking that her name rings a bell, then you probably saw this blog post. If not, you should read it to hear about how amazing Henry’s parents are and how much they mean to me.
Samantha and her family have been tremendous supporters of my photography dream, especially her sister Katie! She has been loyally reading every blog post and anxiously awaiting her turn on the other side of the lens for what seems like forever. I was incredibly humbled and excited when Sam told me that her baby shower gift of a photo shoot with yours truly brought Katie to tears.
When photographing children, I prefer to let them be themselves in more of a lifestyle shoot rather than a studio session. Therefore, you’ll notice that we had all kinds of adventures including a street fair with a petting zoo, the beach, and Mothers’ Day brunch at Katie’s house.
I had such a wonderful time with this entire family and it really warmed my heart to see what amazing mothers Samantha and Katie are to their little bundles of joy. I sure hope this isn’t the last time they will be making an appearance on the blog!
Enough talking… I hope you enjoy the photos! If you do, be sure to like my Facebook page or subscribe for email updates on the left hand side of the page.
First, let’s kick things off by introducing Henry…
Of course we can’t go much further without introducing Henry’s cousin, Poppy….
Samantha’s husband, Scott, is currently deployed in Afghanistan and was a bit bummed to miss out on the photo shoots. However, thanks to the miracle of technology, he was even able to make an appearance in some of the photos. These next four photos are some of my favorites from the weekend!
Both Samantha and Katie have spent a ton of time growing up on the beaches of NH and were excited to take Henry and Poppy to the beach for the first time. As you can tell by their reactions, they were far less excited than their mothers had hoped.
And last, but certainly not least, we snapped a few family photos with the Fleisher family. It was a beautiful day and the kiddos were troopers.
