MY FAMILY PHOTOS // FALL 2020
Today's post is different than most! Today I am sharing my own family photos! I take photos of other people for a living, yet I often don't schedule a time to have our own taken. I know it's crazy! With Addie growing so quickly I have found myself desperate to remember every detail of her little baby self. So with that, my husband and I really wanted to take some family photos this fall during one of our favorite seasons here in New England. The air is crisp and the sun is nice and warm, but we aren't sweating from the crazy humidity that comes with the summer. My husband jokes that my spirit animal is a sea turtle because I love to bask in the sun in the fall and spring.
For our family photos we went to the Thayer Homestead in Medway, MA which is situated right next to Choate Park. We met up with my younger sister, who is one of my second shooters, and she took these shots for us and then I edited them to my specific style! I grew up in Medway and I can tell you that Choate Park has had quite a makeover. When I was little the park was pretty run down and certainly not a very picturesque place. The park and the pond has had quite the glow up and the Thayer Homestead lawn is the perfect spot for photos as you'll see below!
Also, a few things I want to highlight are Addie's adorable head wrap and headband! My friend Mary recently gifted me some absolutely adorable baby accessories and I could not wait to take pictures with Addie wearing them! Mary owns her own Etsy Shop named Laurel Tree and Me where she sells the cutest baby accessories. She also sells fun gift boxes, t-shirts, sweatshirts, glassware and season decor! I recently bought a custom pullover sweatshirt with my business logo on it and I'm obsessed. Her shop is the perfect place to do your holiday shopping because #1 it's amazing to support a small business, let alone a female owned one and #2 there really is something for everyone in her shop. I think it's especially important to support local, small businesses during this pandemic because many of these businesses are suffering and could really use our support.
Okay I'm going to stop babbling now and move on to our family photos!
