We were just up in Nantucket for gobble week, and though it was beautiful as always, the sun set too early and it was chilly. It left me longing for warm summer days with beautiful light til 8pm–which was the case for this adorable family’s summer portrait session. The Artemenkos were on Nantucket for a family wedding, and I’m so glad we were able to fit a session into their wedding week schedule. With three children under the age of 2.5–twins and a 9 month old–I knew this one would be a fun and high energy session! I love when parents are great planners, and their mom consulted with me about their adorable outfit choices as they packed for the trip. We settled on pinks, whites, and blues and everyone looked great.
We met in front of the famed Siasconset Market (don’t miss their hot blueberry muffins every morning) and then tucked away into my favorite little nearby lanes. Those charming streets are on a short list of my favorite places in all of New England. Once the light softened, we headed down to the beach for some sand and sunset.
At one point, the twins decided to walk down the lane toward the market (ice cream anyone?) and I snapped away as they strolled and held hands. They then peeked back at me through the bushes, which resulted in a few of my favorite images from the evening. Their little brother was full of smiles and loved interacting with his older siblings. As it turned out, this was my last session of the summer. Less than 12 hours later, I got appendicitis and had get medivaced to Boston for emergency surgery. Yikes. I’m so happy we fit this session in!
KC, B, W, D, and T–thanks for a wonderful session and hope to see you in NJ soon!
