This weekend I got to catch up with the Christie family and meet the newest member, Butternut, when we met for their family portraits in one of my favorite locations: Joppa Flats and Plum Island in Newburyport MA.

I was met at the door of their home by Kaitlin and Kami.  Kaitlin was the first baby to take advantage of my “Babies first year” package, and boy has she grown in the past few years.  Kami was equally as sweet, and they couldn’t wait to be in front of the camera!  So we piled into our cars and headed down to Joppa Flats.  I love shooting here, and the girls were natural models.  Their smiles and fun loving personalities were on full display as we shot our way to the beach.  Butternut had joined us for a few photos in the flats, but couldn’t contain her doggie joy when we hit the beach.  It was contageous, as girls and dogs ran around enjoying the unseasonably warm October afternoon.
