As you know, I really enjoy and specialize in candid family photography. I had an opportunity to work with this amazing Swiss family in Lexington, MA! This was my second shoot with the family. I first photographed them in 2015 when they lived in Newton, MA and had recently moved to the Boston area from Switzerland. Little miss M only spoke French at the time, and her parents helped translate during the shoot.
Fast forward two years…a sweet baby boy was a new addition to the family and miss M was an active kindergartener fluent in English and happily chatting with me. The family was moving back to Switzerland a DAY after the shoot, and I was amazed at how relaxed the parents were with pretty much the entire house to pack! It was a warm day in June, and we decided to stay in their gorgeous (and huge!) backyard for the shoot.
I absolutely love the casualness and simplicity of this shoot. The family simply hung out in the backyard, followed the kids’ lead, and had a great time. They wanted to document their time in the house the kids will always remember as their “US Home.”
Sharing a few favorites. Enjoy!
