Before 2019 came to a close, I was so thrilled to get to head out to beautiful Royalston, MA for a portrait session with these lovely folks.  The drive out there was absolutely gorgeous, even with all the leaves gone from the trees.  For this city girl, it’s always a special treat to get to go for a drive in the “country” and this drive did not disappoint!   The scenery was definitely inspiring as I headed out towards Royalston for this session.

With children and grandchildren visiting from warmer climes (California and Texas!) the snow on the ground was exciting and fun, but we also headed in after a while to keep everyone from freezing.  The outdoors was gorgeous, and inside the house was cozy, and the kids were just a delight to follow around, documentary-style as they enjoyed their visit and some down time.   With a cozy fire going, and hot beverages all around, it was a treat to get to document these folks as they are now — capturing memories that they will get to look back on through the years.

Because this session was scheduled super last-minute, right during the week between Christmas and New Year, my regular babysitters were all out of town, and I ended up bringing my three year old son, Ezra, with me.  He was a good sport, though with a mom as a photographer, he totally assumed at first that he was supposed to be IN the pictures (I convinced him to stand behind me 🙂 ).  He wanted to bring his new duplos to play with while I was working, and you can spot him in one of the indoor shots here playing with the kids I was photographing 🙂  Normally I wouldn’t bring him, but now he’s super proud he was able to come to work with Mama, and I’m glad I got to show him what I do!

With a combination of more posed shots and more candid ones, this was such a fun session, and I look forward to seeing these folks the next time they’re in town!  Here are a few of my favorites.
