Nantucket Family Beach Portraits–Siasconset, MA

A surfboard, sand, smiles, and sunset are a great combo for a summer beach session! I adored working with these little ladies and their mom. I caught the Nutting family on Nantucket just two days before they moved to California, so naturally we found a surfboard to use during some of the session (ok, they’re moving to Northern CA, but people do surf there in wetsuits among the sharks!) When working with three children, someone is always running in the opposite direction or doing their own thing, but with a little help from mom and grandma (and maybe some promises of Swedish fish), we captured genuine laughter and had lots of fun. I also have two sisters and loved recording the familiar interactions between these three–ranging from love to annoyance–and of course lots of admiration for each other.

We kicked off the session in front my favorite blue doors at Sankaty Head Beach Club (they just scream “summer” to me!) and continued down on the beach in the golden light of sunset with the ever-eroding Siasconset bluff as a gorgeous backdrop.  This family is welcoming child #4 this winter and I found some appropriate beach buckets to photograph with the gals and mom’s tummy! S, C, H, and B, it was so much fun to work with you–I can’t wait to meet your new addition next summer!
