Old Friends in a New Place | Boston Family Photographer

Mid-morning beach photos by Boston family photographer Joy LeDuc.

Several years ago, before we moved from North Andover, Massachusetts to Metrowest Boston, we lived in a condo complex. We had lots of wonderful neighbors, including a couple from the Carolinas who had moved up north for work. They had a miniature poodle named Oliver who was friends with Kona, and we loved having them over for dinner parties that unwound into game nights.

Our friends’ dog, Oliver, who remembered us after several years apart! Boston family photographer travel blog post.

It was that winter where we had blizzard after blizzard—do you remember that one? And so, when our friends told us that they were going back to Charleston we were sad but not surprised. (I would have gone with them at that point, truth be told!)

They had a baby last fall, so my husband, James, and I finally went to see them. It was my first time in South Carolina! We escaped the snow for a few days of balmy 70 degree weather and easy, laughter filled time with our friends.

We got their family photos. On the beach! At the beginning of March! While it was snowing in Boston!

We had so much fun seeing our friends and being in Charleston that we’re already planning our trip back for next year. By then, this little guy will be running around on his own! I hope we can all keep up with him.
