I had the absolute pleasure to photograph Luke, his baby sister Penelope and their parents this week on Chappaquiddick (Chappy) Island. It’s a tiny island off of Martha’s Vineyard that is only accessible by ferry or personal boat. This portrait is filled with reasons why I love doing destination portraits for families. I get to meet new people, explore stunningly beautiful landscapes and find inspiration in new surroundings.
Much of Martha’s Vineyard and Chappy are beautifully untouched landscapes. Thick growth of shrubs and sand-loving flowers cover both islands and provide a natural backdrop empty of neon signs, block after block of commercial spaces or high-rise condos. It feels as if you are experiencing it as it once was hundreds of years ago.
There aren’t many places on the east coast where you can find yourself all alone on a wide expanse of beach. And I love that Luke brought along his best friend, his stuffed animal bear, T.
Hope you enjoy your sneak peek R family! Can’t wait to show you the rest.
