Family of 4 Portrait Session at home in Hudson NH

I love watching families grow. Its amazing how time flies. Photographing families over a period of time is a great reminder of how we freeze moments in time when we get our portraits done. 

The last family portrait I took for this family the little girl was about 2 years old she had just learned how to walk and the world was an oyster amazing growth happens in 1 year to see more from their last session see below for some portraits from that session. During their family maternity portrait session it was too cold and she just wouldnt have it so she wasn't part of the maternity portraits though nonetheless she braced me with her spunky personality. 

 At just alittle over 3 years she couldn't wait to show off her baby brother who she completely adores and is proud to ensure that he too shall follow in her footsteps. 

This session took place at their family home and theres no better place than home to capture a family's addition. 

During their portrait planning session we planned out their outfits and settled on a time and location for the portrait session and while we toyed with the idea of doing the session offsite we decided to have the session at home since it would be easier for mom with an infant.

Rexhame Beach and South River Session in Late Summer

Stormy Weather, Sharks in the water no problem. we had been looking forward to this Late Summer Beach Session for Months and a lot went into it such as hiring a hair and makeup artist, taking time off work so she can be rested was just a few things She had done in preparation for her session.

Rexhame Beach and South River is such a beautiful location that is in the South Shore Its one of a kind and offers clients a good range and backdrop for both individual, Senior and family portraits.

Through the Summer and Especially the last couple weeks leading into the session there had been a lot of sighting of Sharks in the water as a result a lot of warnings regarding being mindful when at the beach and especially in the water.

Lydia has wanted a beach session for as long as she could remember although the timing had not been perfect. When she made a commitment to love herself more and make time for herself this year, she decided that this was the year that she would see her dream come true.

When she contacted me, we went over all the fine details during her consultation session including discussing how she would like to enjoy her portraits. After discussing all the options including Table Top Display and Wall art, she decided she wanted wall art. She also looked at different mediums and while she loves canvas, she fell in love with, Metal Prints So we determined that Metal Prints would go to her living area and a Canvas would go into her bedroom since she already had another piece of Canvas there.

Following which the day of session despite all the challenges with the weather we had a beautiful session, the sky had a wide range of colors and it ended in a perfect pink skyline which provided just the perfect backdrop for this beautiful lady from the inside out. I’ll let you be the judge.

After the Session we had to determine which cluster would work best based on the images She loved and while we initially loved the idea of a Modern setup it didn’t quite work out perfectly so then we decided that the Timeless Collection would work best. Really looking forward to Lydia’s Wall art Arriving and I can’t wait to share it with you. Stay Tuned to see the final product.

Why you should get your family photos taken this year

Family photos come in all sorts of iterations, and as a Randolph family photographer, I've seen them all.  Parents with children.  Just the kids.  Older siblings together.  A single person or a couple or  Even a group of close friends.  Family has so many definitions, and so family photos can be so many different things.  As a child, and even now, one of my favorite things to do was peruse through my family's photo albums and marvel at old photos of my parents, as well as newer photos of my own immediate family.

The Fall is slowly approaching and  If you haven't had your family photos or scheduled your family session yet I would highly recommend you do so today dont let this year be another one that goes by chose without documenting your growing family.  Whether it be for the first time or the fifth time; whether it's a traditional family or something a little different, family photos are so important.  I've got two reasons why now is the time for family photos (and I'd love to be the one to take them).  So to find out why you should have your family's photos taken this year, read on.

1.  For the present

 

Maybe you're a new family who just had a baby.  Maybe you've got a few growing kids, or you have one about to go to college or maybe even an aging parent.  The bottom line is you want to remember the now.  You want to remember this moment.  Time passes fast.  They're only this little once.  Each moment happens only once.  You want to remember this now, this present, and bring it with you to the future.  

2.  For the future

I am very lucky to come from a family where photos are plentiful.  In my parents' home, there is a photo of my grandfather this is the only way I remember my grandfather since he passed away when I was about 2 years and I dont have much memories of him other than though the photographs.  I spend so much time looking at photos of my parents as children; of my own immediate family through the years.  It all gave me a sense of belonging and a connection to my past.  

There are lots of moms (and dads, too, but honestly, more moms) who say they wish they were in photos with their children, or they wish there were more photos of them, period, so their children would have some to look at now, and in the future.  The future is uncertain.  I cannot tell you how much those children would appreciate if their moms and dads and aunts and uncles and grandparents got in a photo.  The future value of photos like that is immeasurable.  Believe me.  Your future family will thank you over and over for them.

Family Portrait Photography is so important in recording various stages through your families life.  In current  day While most parents especially mothers tend to be the ones recording the memories for their children its important to make time to be in the frame to make sure you exist in your family memories. 

A Portrait Session with Seraphine Photography is an experience your family will remember and treasure for years to come and will be passed down generations you too will be remembered.  Call me today make sure you too are in the frame. We will start by talking on the phone then planning to meet so we can design and plan not only your family memories but also discuss how to present and display your experience.
