It was an unseasonably warm afternoon in October when I met up with this family in Hull, MA for their family portrait session. Mom and I were both worried it would be too cold for a beach session, but the weather turned out to be amazing. The sky and sunset were exquisite. We all felt so lucky to have such perfect weather for their beach session in Boston.

This family is temporarily living in this house on the beach while waiting for the building of their permanent home to be finished. Even though this isn’t their forever home, they wanted to capture this time in their lives. With three girls under three, life is a bit crazy and hectic. But, they live in this gorgeous location and get to watch the sun set over Boston every night! Over the summer, twin sisters, Emilia and Isabel spent many hours playing in the sand here with baby sister Malena. I can understand why they to memorialize this location and this time in their lives with a family photo session.
I think my favorite moment was when I asked to take a photo of just Mom with her girls. While I didn’t intend for her to hold all three in her arms at the same time, (that must have been heavy!) in retrospect, I thought it was so appropriate. Mom’s first instinct was to scoop up and hold all three of her babies at once… After all, she carried these babies in her belly for months– Emilia and Isabel at the same time! She birthed these babies, she rocked these babies, she stayed up all night with these babies, and did all the other countless things, amazing things that mothers do for their babies. She is so strong. Of course she can stand there on that beautiful beach and hold all three in her arms at once.
I also loved capturing Dad’s smile during their family session. The love he has for his girls is so visible. It’s clear he’s smitten with all of the ladies in his life!
Thank you so much for inviting me to capture your family at this time in your life. I am sure when your new home is complete there will be so many new memories to treasure, but it was such a pleasure to capture these memories at your house on the beach!
