This is the second year in a row that I’ve had the opportunity to spend a day in autumn on the beach with the Graham family. They are such a sweet and photogenic family (in case you can’t already tell). This spot on the beach in Kenilworth is just stunning. Every year these images turn out to be some of my favorites. I love the shoreline in the North Shore. The rock meeting the sand is just a breathtaking view. An added bonus is that in the fall, you get some some really beautiful colors in the trees.

I love having the chance to photograph families with young children. This brother-sister combo is a really sweet pair. Big sister moves like a dancer along the the shoreline. She’s so poised and sweet. I love her wispy hair and those bright blue eyes. Aren’t they beautiful?! Little brother is just along for the ride. He’s happy-go-lucky and happy just to be around everyone. He gives some of the most giant, heart-melting grins! He was content to play in the sand. (I mean, what kid isn’t?) All in all, it was a really fun day of photographing some very sweet little kiddos.

Graham Family, thanks for inviting me back to do your photographs again this year. I love autumn on the beach, and this session was no different. You have a really beautiful family. It was fun to be a fly on the wall and grab some pictures as you guys as you interacted and played together. Your two little ones are just as sweet as they can be and I think we got some really fabulous pictures of the four of you together. I hope the photos bring back beautiful memories for years to come. The setting you chose was really perfect.
