Southampton Family Photography :: Beach Session

creative family lifestyle portraits

How many families do you know that want to have their water fight photographed after they take their “nice” photos? I had such a blast with this super photogenic and lovely family. Kelly and I have been meeting on Monday morning for the past few months, for what I like to call “punishing Ashley.” She’s a personal trainer and an amazing inspiration. I always leave our sessions feeling uplifted and with a new appreciation for my body. I just wish she could count better 😉 I loved getting to meet her fiance, Phil, and their combined families. Each of the 4 kids has something a little different to bring to the table in terms of personality and quirkiness. It’s definitely a full house, but I don’t think they’re hating it too much.

These girls were not shy.

If you’re a bride trying to get in shape for the big day, or you just need someone to push you a bit harder than you push yourself (who doesn’t need that?), I can’t say enough awesome things about Kelly. Visit her website for more information.

New Forest Family Photography :: Louise + Nathan + Jocelyn
 This sweet family happens to our neighbours and friends. We are often given fresh eggs from their chickens. Little Jocelyn was born about 3 weeks before Cavanaugh, and Louise and I have spent many days commiserating celebrating as we navigate new motherhood together. It's so much easier with friends (and lots of coffee and cake). Being right in the forest is a photographer's dream, there is an endless choice of whimsical places. These images were taken in the field behind Louise and Nathan's house, and their fairytale back garden.

Sister, Sister
So I was in my home town last month. It's up in the beautiful pacific north west, and I try to take advantage of as much as I can while I'm there (we just don't have trees like this in Florida). I asked my little sister if she wanted to go for a walk with me. We had quite a few uncharacteristically sunny days while I was up there. It was so beautiful, but the days were so short. It felt like the sun had just managed to get up into the sky and it was setting again. Regardless I was spoiled.Here's my little sister. She has an adventurous spirit and is about to embark on another one. When I look at these photos, especially the close ups I se ...

Happy Holidays
I'm not going to lie, Christmas has kind of taken a back seat this year to other things that are going on. But I still love this time of year and knowing that there is going to be a respite, from work and other things, to spend with family and friends. I like taking part in our local community's holiday activities that bring people together and I love finding little treasures for people to open on Christmas day. Favorite gift I found this year were these little stamp sets for my niece and Eliot's god-daughter.I also really love when I get to reconnect with people who's photos I've taken in the past. One of the biggest compliments is getti ...
