Lexi Photography » Candid :: Real :: Emotional

Alright people. Katie has been my student for three years. I spend the other part of my life as a high school photography teacher and I would say it’s just as important as the work I do as a photographer. I keep that part of my life pretty separate but when former students hire me to photograph them I melt into a little puddle. Yes yes I am lots of pieces of professional and organized—both in my business and in my classroom—but I’m also equal parts feeling, which is likely why you’re reading this here silly blog. So I joked that this session gave me all the feels…but it did. It truly is an honor to photograph my students in their real life and I figure if they trust me enough to do so, well then I must be doing something right. :) So on this slightly stormy August evening we met up at the beautiful Wingaersheek Beach and got the last bits of light before the rain came through…super luck! I’m going to get right to the photos and lucky for you this family is really stinkin’ cute!

Favorite Moments:

• We were fighting a serious thunderstorm on this particular night and we ended up with the perfect evening light and it started raining just as we ended the session. Whew!
• I love that this family was perfectly coordinated but not perfectly matched. Nice job Katie (aka…outfit coordinater)!
• If you have siblings I will likely make you do something silly together, this time it was the monkey walk. I did it for the laughter, I think you’ll find it fun too!

I just can’t even with these photos. Love! I met up with Sydney on a stunning evening in Boston. She is from South Dakota and wanted to make sure that she got some city skyline shots behind her for senior portraits (instead of fields and fields of corn and hay that she was used to seeing) so we headed to the gorgeous Seaport district, which has my very favorite view of the Boston skyline! We walked all through the area and even hit the greenway for some fun photos.

Some nights you get absolutely perfect light. On this particular night the sky was full of gorgeous warm light and Sydney helped to make it amazing–I just couldn’t take a bad photo. Talk about a girl who is stunning, super comfy in front of the camera, and happy. Add to that the beautiful light with perfect temps in my favorite part of the city. Aaaaahhhh perfection. Okay, I know miss Sydney has been checking the blog regularly to see these so let’s get right to them.

Favorite Things:

* Syd showed up with lots of outfit options that were breezy and comfortable and 100% her
* That skyline, I can’t even tell you with the sunshine and the skyline and the gorgeous Sydney how happy I was. :):)
* Sydney would get excited when we finished at a location she would snap her fingers and it was the cutest thing (look at the second to last pic)

I love when I get the opportunity to photograph my couples years later, after the wedding, when they have little ones running about. Erika and Andrew were married in 2013 and have since added 2 little ones to the mix. Also along with them was Erika’s sister’s family with their two little ones and so it was quite fun (and yes a little wild) to photograph this group. I met up with these families mere hours after I had returned from France and it was so nice to start off with this fun group. It was a bit hot and when the kids got cranky (which happens at ALL family sessions with little ones) we went off to Flour to get some goodies. Well worth the time to stop and recharge with a little sugar. :) Let’s get to the cuteness!

Favorite Things:

• Two families is better than one. ;)
• The light was perfect on this particular morning…I only do morning sessions for very special clients. :)
• Erika and Andrew have perfected their “walk” for me. Big love!
