Family Photos at the Beach | Time to Book your 2017 beach sessions!

We had a great time doing these family photos at the beach last Summer in Gloucester. The weather was perfect, and we picked a weeknight, so it wasn’t too crowded. If you haven’t read my last post with my beach session tips, definitely check it out. And if you are thinking of booking a beach session for 2017, now is the time to get in touch because summer dates fill fast!

As the mom of two girls, I know there is something special about sisters. The inside jokes, and the sharing of clothes, and the late night laughs. But brothers sure are special in their own way, too. Not only were these three so easy to work with, but I could tell that they are true friends. By the way, this was my second time working with this family — the last time was back in 2014 at Appleton Farms. I loved seeing them all again!

It was also fun to see that in addition to having so much in common and a true bond, they each had their own distinct personalities. One super silly, one a little serious, and one who kind of fit perfectly in the middle. Boston Kids Photographer_0005.jpgBoston Kids Photographer_0003.jpg
