One of my favorite things about being a photographer is all the kids I get to work with. I’ve always enjoyed playing with children, and this job lets me play while capturing their personalities, fun expressions, and the little details that their parents love so much. Today’s session is all about the kids – five kids in fact – all siblings and members of the lovely “B” Family. I first photographed these sweet faces in 2015 when it was just Ella, Ollie, and Grace, and have since had the pleasure of seeing them a few more times after little Sully was born. This time I got to meet the fifth kiddo of the family, little 1-year old Poppy, and an energetic and fun beach session with these wonderful children was just what I needed during the last week of summer vacation. It is so fun to see how much the kids have grown in between sessions, and this time I really took in what a simply wonderful young woman Ella is becoming, how grown up and thoughtful Ollie is, how little Grace still has some little kid left in her but is quickly becoming a big kid, how silly and energetic little Sully, who was only one at our last session, has become, and how seriously-adorable little Poppy fits so easily into the mold of this beautiful family. We had a sunny and gorgeous night at Drakes Island for our session together, and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to photograph these wonderful siblings once again. Here are my favorites!
