The Jackson Family on the Beach in Winter

Monday, March 3, 2014


Y'all know Ned. He's an amazing guy and a great shooter... For an afternoon I went with him and his lovely wife Amanda and highly caffeinated son Nate to Crane Beach in Ipswich. They have an adorable new baby now, so I thought it might be fun for them to take a peek back at when they were only three... how simple life must have seemed then. We had a blast rolling around in the sand, playing sneaky statues, red light-green light, and peeing in the dunes. Not me, I'm a professional. They really are a wonderful family with a ton of love and heart. My favorite type of family portrait session, when I'm not documenting daily family life, is to just find a place we all love and hang out for a little bit. No pressure for anyone, just free license to play and be a kid.

If you're visiting Massachusetts for any period of time I definitely recommend carving out a portion of your trip to explore what Topsfield and Ipswich have to offer (and of course, a mandatory visit to A&J King Artisan Bakers in Salem.)


I'm currently accepting new family clients. My studio is in Leesburg, VA and shooting family and lifestyle portraits can be here in Virginia or I'm happy to travel. Interested? You can reach me HERE.
