D Family – Hopkinton, MA

The D family contacted us recently to have photos taken – partly for their Christmas cards, and of course, to have the memories captured in time.

We decided to meet at Hopkinton State Park in Hopkinton, MA. Having never been there, we went a day or two earlier and found some lovely locations we hoped to use on the day of the shoot.

The day we met them, it was a beautiful sunny day – too sunny! Capturing photos is always easier on a cloudy day, it helps to eliminate harsh shadows and gives a much more even lighting. We worked with what we were given though – and had fun in the process.

It took a bit to get the kids to act natural in front of the camera. We had to use great teamwork this day – David focused (no pun intended) on the camera and Rhiannon did great occupying the kids – she had them throw leaves since they wanted to play with them anyway – and boy did it pay off – look at those smiles!


As the parents loosened up, dad really go into it too and started throwing out some great suggestions for poses and shots. Maybe he should consider a career switch??


We such a fun time with this sweet family – we hope they did too!
