This family session will go down as one of my favorites! And not because we snuck into a yacht club and ended up having such a beautiful backdrop for photos, but because I first met this couple when Kathryn was still pregnant with Nikko last winter! Nikko was born just days after their maternity session with me in downtown Boston and now to see Nikko walking and running around is so amazing. Now that I’ve been in business for three years, it has been such an honor to be able to work with families year after year and see their children grow up, and in this case, be born! This job is truly such a gift and I am so lucky to work with such amazing families like this one!

We had such a gorgeous summer day for Kathryn and Jake’s family mini session! We hung out for an afternoon on a yacht club dock and we must’ve looked the part because we were able to sneak right in without a problem 🙂 Nikko is such a little cutie and I loved chasing him around the dock snapping pictures of him in action. This little guy had me laughing the whole time with his facial expressions and skeptical looks into my camera. These are some of my favorite images ever and just like last time, we got this photoshoot in just in time because a few weeks later, their little baby girl was born and Nikko became a big brother!! 🙂 Make sure to scroll to see all my favorites of this used to be family of 3 and now family of 4! 

Also, Kathryn is the owner of an amazing business called The Everyday Co. and if you don’t own any of her handmade goods, you need to! Especially with the holidays coming up, you can find some amazing gifts for your friends and family members! Go check her out!! 🙂
