If you haven’t been to Wentworth-by-the-Sea, it is a beautiful historic resort in New Castle New Hampshire. It’s a perfect location for family photos, because it not only offers a gorgeous garden setting, but also a marina, and just one minute down the road, a small beach. Julie and Christian were married here and we did a session on their wedding anniversary in 2017. Two years later, and we decided to use the Wentworth again, because we loved it so much the first time! Just one caveat about this location, Julie called ahead and asked permission and to clear the date beforehand. They also booked a reservation in the restaurant after the session, so I’d highly suggest this if you are considering a session there.
The gardens here are just gorgeous, and the light on this night was golden and glory they way a June night should be.
I first photographed these kiddos when Kyle was around two years old and it’s been awesome watching them grow. They are really good kids, and super sweet to each other.
It’s always OK with me when kids get a little silly during a session, and Kyle decided that this lamp post was perfect to shimmy up!
During the last session we did, we headed down to the marina after we were finished in the gardens, but this time we hopped in our cars for the one minute drive to the little beach down the road.
Again with the GORGEOUS light.
I love that Kyle can sit still and smile at me one second, and then take off like wildfire, just as kids need to do sometimes. It’s all cool with me.
Abby seemed so grown up since I saw them last in 2017!
And a couple last photos of the whole family before we called it a wrap!
