ryan and fam : cape cod family photographer

A year ago today I was photographing this session. A year.

Where did those days go when I could blog three times a week? My life feels a little crazy recently, as though I’m being pulled in every direction….the days when you’re to-do list feels so overwhelming that you actually feel paralyzed? It’s busy season for photographers and although I’m a bit stressed I am entirely grateful that I am busy with so many families that are entrusting their memories to me.

Today I will be heading to the same location to photograph 3 little ones that I haven’t seen in a couple of years.  It’s always amazing to see how they’ve grown and how their their little personalities have blossomed.  I think it’s important for your family session to be about you.  Not what you’ve seen me do for another family.  Make it your own.  Your very own.  No one session can be exactly like the next.  Each person is different–location, lighting, moods, weather, wardrobe, you name it–all are integral in the visual story that will unfold.

How do you make it your own?  Incorporate a keepsake, an instrument, a dance…whatever it is that brings joy to you and your family.  We, together, can accomplish something as special as you make it to be!

Enjoy! xo

    Melissa - These are beautiful and timeless portraits. I’m sure they would look gorgeous in a warm black/white also. Great job. I am sure they are covering the home of this family!

pure love : cape cod family portraits

This family is very special to me.  I have photographed them since their first daughter was born and we’ve done quite a few shoots since then.  It goes beyond the number of the sessions–there is in undeniable connection when somebody truly values your work and continuously entrusts these very special moments to YOU to capture.  Now, while I don’t do extended family sessions anymore, this was different.  My clients parents are unbelievably close to her children and an in integral part of their lives.  She even joked that her eldest daughter thinks of her mother, he nana/grandma, like a second mother and calls her by her first name.  Can you blame her?  I mean, honestly she looks like she should be her aunt and not her grandmother!!  Needless to say, they are a stunning family and a joy to photograph.  I’d like to add it was an extremely windy day and very cool for August so the girls were troopers–all four of ‘em!!

Enjoy!  xoxo

And a behind the scenes video I shot during their session!
