I was so excited to find out my cousin, Lauren, who lives in New York, her husband, and her two little girls were going to visit for a few days in May. I was even more excited when she asked me to take some family photos of her sweet family. Lauren said that ever since her second baby, Adrianna, she hasn’t taken close to the amount of photos she did of her first daughter, Elaina. She was in need of some great family photos before her daughters got any older.
We decided to take her family photos in a setting she doesn’t usually get in the city. We went to Bedford Village Common, a pretty and quiet park in New Hampshire, for some great family photos. It was an absolutely gorgeous spring day when we scheduled her photo shoot, which was much awaited after all that rain we got. The trees and flowers were in bloom and everything was green. A perfect location for family photos, for sure!
We started the photo shoot by the gazebo. Everything was off to a great start. We even got little Adrianna to smile…even though Lauren said that would be a real challenge.
After just a few shots of this gorgeous family, Elaina spotted a bee. In typical little girl fashion, she had a total melt down! To calm her down, we decided it would be best if she went and sat in the car with her daddy to take a little break. So meanwhile, we got some great shots of Lauren and Adrianna. There is nothing like the mother-daughter bond.
Elaina quickly composed herself with Daddy’s help and they came back for some precious father-daughter photos and a few more family shots.We were excited to even get some unexpected pictures of just Elaina and Adrianna together. How adorable are they?! After a few more photos, and Elaina letting us know that everything that flew by her was “fuzz,” we called it a day for these two little girls.
But, we couldn’t completely finish up without some romantic shots of Lauren and her husband, Rich. As the girls watched from the sidewalk, I was able to snap some great photos of these two love birds under a tree. Seriously, how cute is this happy couple?!
We were so happy to capture these memories for this adorable family and it was easy to see how happy and fun this little family of four is. We had so much fun and it really went off without a hitch!
