I know this to be true from my own childhood photos and the more I chat with clients, the more I learn that I’m not alone.  We put a deep importance into taking photos of our children as babies, toddlers and preschoolers.  They are dramatically changing, oh so cute, and we don’t want to miss a beat.  Then often comes what I call “the gap”.  We get caught up in the daily busyness of life, and before we know it, we haven’t had family portraits taken in years.

Sound familiar?

When Christine contacted me to photograph her family after a long gap, I was super excited. I love working with school aged children, teens and tweens and I am a big believer that family portraits are important at all ages and stages.  Remember that 2 year old of yours who would never sit still for a portrait?  Chances are, that by the time they reach 1st grade, they’ll take direction quite well.  This opens up a whole new world of creative possibilities! 🙂 We shot this session with Christine, Jamie and their kids (ages 6, 13 and 15) back in August at a beautiful orchard in Hollis, NH.  I wanted to hold off showcasing it until my new site was live.  It is my hope that the beauty in these images will serve as a reminder to fill your own gap.


Luke and Maren are 6 year old twins.  I’ve photographed many twins over the years and it always amazes me to see their powerful connections.  This image of the two of them, speaking volumes of their special bond, is one of my all time favorite captures.
