Castle Island Family Portraits. When I was a kid, Castle Island was one of my very favorite spots. Only about 10 minutes from where I grew up, it was a perfect place to cool off with a sea breeze in the summer. When Jana and Dylan suggested it as a spot for portraits, I was so excited I could hardly wait.
While Castle Island is a lovely place to cool off in the summer, it can unfortunately also have that feature on an already-cool October day! The intense winds limited somewhat where we could go, but we had fantastic light. Even better were the dozens of airplanes that flew overhead, entrancing the kids.
It was such a treat to get to work with these folks again, too — I had first photographed them at my Spring mini-sessions in 2016, which were a fundraiser for the Arlington Family Connection. At that point, they were a family of three, and it was so nice to get to see them again as a family of four!
