We couldn’t have asked for nicer weather for this year’s Mommy & Me Mini Sessions at Atkinson Common in Newburyport. If you were involved last year, then you will remember they were rescheduled due to torrential downpours, and then the first day they were rescheduled for ended up barely reaching 50 degrees, raw and rainy (in May, mind you.) While I’d much rather shoot in cloudy weather, the cold raw day does not make it enjoyable for anyone, especially the family on the other side of my lens. So when the weather turned out to be sunny and 80s, I was thrilled.
We kicked off our session with a couple of family shots. Even though it’s a Mommy & Me Session, often times the family will ask if we can do a few full family shots too. Fun fact – I immediately recognized Melissa’s husband, Ben when I arrived, and after a quick discussion, we figured out we worked at the same company during the same period. We didn’t work in the same office, so we only knew each other in passing, but talk about a small world!
There little girl, Miss C, was just darling. She was so giggly and smiley, and just over all a very happy girl. I loved her matching outfits with Mom – such a cute idea!
It was a fun way to kick off the Mommy & Me Mini Sessions!
