“Play is the work of the child.” -Maria Montessori

I couldn’t help thinking of this quote as I was taking and editing Madeline’s 4 year photos. I can’t say enough about how much I love working with families to document their children at each age and stage, just as they are. (Sure, a few posed family photos are always included too. But there is nothing like capturing a child in her own world, doing what she loves).

    Now We are Six - […] you’d like to take a trip down memory lane, here are her sessions from age four and five as […]

Since I first heard the fabulous Stephen Kellogg this fall when he opened for Josh Ritter at the Music Hall in Portsmouth, I’ve thought of my sensitive, ecstatic, miserable, wonderful Addie when I hear his song “Sweet Sophia” written for his daughter. (He’s good on record. He’s ah-mazing live.)

With a fierce disposition like the beat of a drum / you get hurt more than others but you have more fun / I can’t make it stop so the love keeps on growing / and if it kills me today I’ll be better off for knowing / Sweet Sophia, girl one look at you and I was hooked / Sweet Sophia, burned all the pages and rewrote the book with your heart shaped lips and my breath that you took

    Lindsay - She is a beautiful little firecracker! xoxo

With the P family. I met Kristin and Nick at childbirth classes when Kristin and I were pregnant with Lia and Addie over four years ago. Crazytown! Now, both two babies later, we’ve kept in touch and I’ve finally gotten my camera on this adorable family. We met up at her family’s summer house at Hampton Beach, and made sure to get some photos at a very special bench. I love when the location is particularly important to a family- this was not just a “let’s meet at the beach” session- it is the beach where she grew up. Perfect. So much love in these photos.
