Crane Beach Engagement Session

Laney & Austin love being near the water, it’s their happy place. When it came to planning their engagement session we knew that it had to be a location on the water. One of my favorite places, both personally and as a photographer, is Crane Beach in Ipswich - a beautiful beach made of soft white sand and gorgeous green dunes. The stunning locale spoke to their ocean loving hearts and was the perfect backdrop of their summer engagement. Enjoy some of my favorites!!

Crane Beach Family Portraits

Part of what I love most about this job I have as a photographer is the opportunity to follow along with families throughout the years. Being able to have the opportunity to reconnect with couples and families year after year brings so much joy to my heart. So when Diana contacted me to help celebrate her daugther's second birthday with a portrait session, I was thrilled. This little cute, Olivia, has grown up before my camera - from her adorable six month portrait session to her first birthday and now as a full blown toddler who loves to run and jump and play, it has been so fun to watch them grow together!!

On a beautiful summer evening we met at one of my favorite portrait locations, Crane Beach, for a relaxed session together. Olivia got to play in the sand, run with Daddy, snuggle up with Mom and just enjoy being together. Here are some of my faves!!

Fall Engagement Session at Crane Beach in Ipswich

Kaitlyn and Doug love being by the water -- a couple after my own heart!! She knew that she wanted her engagement session to have a romantic beachy vibe and gave me the opportunity to suggest a location. Of course I knew the perfect place, our favorite beach, Crane Beach in Ipswich!!

On an unseasonably warm (theme of the fall!) September evening we enjoyed a beautifully quiet session together on the beach. As the sky turned to a soft blue and pink hue Kaitlyn and Doug cuddled together, sand between their toes. It was such a joyful session and I can't wait to celebrate with them come next September when they tie the know!! Enjoy a few of my favorite images!!

Crane Estate Engagement Session

On a overcast spring afternoon I met with Maggie and Jack at the beautiful Crane Estate for their engagement session. Maggie and Jack will be getting married next year at an estate in Ipswich and so they wanted their engagement session to reflect the the history and beachy feel of this seaside town. The Crane Estate is sprawling with tremendous views in almost every direction. It was a treat to explore the beautiful property with Maggie and Jack and admire the lovely architectural details and beauty of this place. 

Just down the street is one of my favorite places, Crane Beach. After a quick outfit change we headed to the beach for a more relaxed vibe. Snuggled up in sweaters, Maggie and Jack enjoyed the nearly empty beach and bravely dipped their toes in the chilly Atlantic waters!! The overcast skies, empty beach and these two made for a romantic ending to a beautiful session!!

Enjoy some of my favorites!!
