How to Celebrate Special Times Within Your Family | Greater Boston Family Photographer

It’s a very special time for this family! Andrea lives here in Maynard, and her husband’s brother’s family is staying with them for three weeks as they prepare to move from Providence, RI to Seattle, WA. She wanted to document these tiny cousins together because it could be some time before they’re all in the same place again.

After days and days of rain, we were so fortunate to have such a beautiful day for this session.

The light was truly golden and beautiful, and the girls looked absolutely angelic in it. The coolest thing was that they were wearing dresses that belonged to their great grandmother when she was a baby!

I really loved that these photos weren’t just to capture a time of year or the age of a child, but that they were, instead, a celebration of a special time in this family’s history.

Years from now, when Andrea talks to Baby B about that special time when Aunt Bethany and her girls came to stay, they’ll have the photos to look at as they remember the beautiful, sweet time they spent together.

Thank you, Andrea, Bethany, and sweet little ones!
