Fall photos for these boys. Again. They love it. I’m still not sure how they are all this old already, because in my mind, they are still the newborns I first laid eyes on just last week. It is crazy unfair how quickly time moves when it comes to kids and their milestones. Things happen so fast – all of those cliches about time? They’re true. It’s heart-bursting and wonderful and heart-breaking all at the same time.

Oldest brother J once napped on me in the middle of the mall, 2 days before my daughter was born. The middle brother there, O? He slept like a CHAMPION for his newborn photos. For hours and hours. I told mom to go catch up on her DVR while I did his photos. And baby brother M can certainly hold his own with his big brothers – this kid’s hair was a marvel as a newborn. Dark at the roots, and bright blond at the tips. The random details that I remember!

We have probably done photos all over our little town at this point, but we managed to pick somewhere new this time. Somewhere covered in poison ivy, as their dad nicely pointed out. OOPS. Thankfully these were fall photos, and everyone was wearing boots and pants, so we just were extra careful where we walked. I wanted to bring them to this woodsy spot that I love, because I knew the trees would be a super fun (and new to them) background. We started off with photos of just the boys, because I knew I had limited time with their attention. I mean, have you ever asked 3 boys to sit still and look at you for more than like 10 minutes at a time?

Below are just a few of my favorites from this year’s fall photos. G fam, I love you guys. You’re never allowed to move away, you hear?

A sunset family session is one of my favorite things, and I’m pretty sure you can tell if you’ve been here before. I have this obsession with the sun, which I never realized until I picked up a camera. (I’m a little crazy.) Speaking of crazy, I’m about to do something I can’t believe I’m doing…sharing a link to my First Ever Newborn Session. This was from eight years ago, so please be gentle, haha! Eight! I’m sharing because this hilarious, wonderful family below belongs to the squishy, sleepy baby in that blog post. She’s 8 now, and has a little sister AND brother. (I’m sure she loves me re-linking to her baby photos too. L, forgive me!) I’m in a nostalgic mood lately because of all the back to school stuff.

Little did I realize way back then, that stepping foot in their home to capture newborn photos of their oldest baby would mean they’re stuck with me for life now. Mom hired me on a recommendation from a mutual friend. Now we might text a lot and our kids are growing up together. Reading Harry Potter together. Perhaps (or someday soon) complaining about their moms together. It was meant to be!

For this session, we went to one of my favorite local spots at sunset, which sits at the top of a small (not small) hill. Tall grasses and wide open walking paths make for a variety of options for photos. We let the kids run around and take some breaks as needed, and we also didn’t have to worry about cars or anyone falling into any water. It happens! I made them stand in all of the golden hazy gorgeousness, it’s a requirement for sunset sessions. The kids hammed it up for me (on their own accord), and I completely love how much expression is in their photos as a result!

Below are a few of my favorites from their sunset family session. C fam, you know I love you all.

You guys HAVE to recognize these kiddos by now, my annual NH family session favorites! They were some of my very first clients, and now I’ve been photographing them for eight years. Eight! They are all cousins – boy/girl on each side. Two of them are twins, and the other two are…not. Haha, that isn’t a very eloquent explanation! Anyway,  I travel up to NH each fall to catch up and do photos. I love going up to NH because it’s somewhere new to me, where I’m not photographing very often. They also have the coolest spots for our sessions – not that I could direct you to any of them! I’m not known for my sense of direction, especially not in the woods of New Hampshire.

The weather was being typical New England this day. There was rain for much of the morning and early afternoon, so we were all unsure if we should go ahead or not. We ultimately decided to go for it, and we ended up lucking out with some pretty decent light! I think the weather around here is one of the trickiest things to work around. Even today for example, was super gray and overcast all day. Clouds appeared around an hour before sunset, and sure enough, the sky looked amazing. So we have all learned to roll with the weather the best we can.

Have I mentioned the dogs yet? I’ve photographed Bailey (the white pup) for a couple of years now, one of the best behaved dogs ever. This time, I got to meet Penny. And just LOOK how amazing they were! So well behaved and sweet, and the kids were wonderful with them.

Below are just a few of my favorites from their NH family session. Guys, it was amazing to catch up, as always! Thank you so much for meeting up, I can’t wait to see you again!

I met up with Morgan and her mom for some summer senior photos on THE most humid night. Thank goodness for car a/c! I met Morgan through another senior I photographed, Maddie. I love when my clients send me their friends! Let’s do more of that!

We made sure to take plenty of breaks for hair brushing and cooling off during our session. I took Morgan to my favorite local spots for her session. There is a reason they’re my favorites! I just love the water at the reservoir so much (and since we don’t live near the ocean, that is my only local water option!). And the conservation trail is just SO pretty and has the best views. The wildflowers there are insane this time of year also.

I visit both of these spots when I’m not working too, so I am pretty comfortable with knowing how they work. Like…I knew the reservoir would be low enough at the end of the summer so I could potentially have a client walk out onto the rocks a bit. We can’t do this in the spring when the water is high, I worry too much about falls. If you’ve been on my blog before, you’ll likely recognize this spot. Same for the conservation trail. I know we have light later up there, so we went there second. The large trees surrounding the reservoir mean it gets darker there earlier.

Morgan’s mom and grandmother came along for photos, and it was so great to meet them! They even hiked up the hill with us (I may have stayed in the a/c, not going to lie!). We ended up with a beautiful night!

Below are just a few of my favorites from Morgan’s summer senior photos. Thank you guys for coming to meet me!

MeganJane Photography Newport RI wedding photographerI knew when Paula told me she & Chris were planning their Newport wedding that we were in for a SUPER fun weekend. I’ve known Paula for years, as she grew up next door to my cousins. Since I knew that they all ran in the same social circles, it became pretty obvious. This wedding was going to be the most fun, and I could. Not. Wait. I’ve been to Newport many times over the years, and it is just fun, always. We first did Paula & Chris’ engagement photos on a 100 degree day in July (and they both wore pants!), so I knew that no matter what the weather, we’d make the most of it. We had the most bizarre weather that day, typical New England. Full sun to filtered sun, to dense thick fog. I mean, really. This part of the country loves to challenge us all year round!

Newport isn’t necessarily FAR from me, but it’s not super close either. Add to that my spectacular timing of the bridge closing as we approached due to a car fire, and well, let’s just say it was a great idea to make a weekend of it. If I had driven down on Saturday, I would have been stressing out so much. But all was well and we made it with plenty of time to shop and walk around and enjoy a fun dinner the night before. A+ planning on my part. Who is we, you ask? Well I *had* to fly in my soul sister Meg of Meg Sexton Photography. She was with me for the other weddings with this crew, so there was no question. I’ll also use any excuse to see her, so it was perfect.

Wedding posts are always long, so settle in! Some of Paula & Chris’ Newport wedding favorites are below.
