Our summer and fall evenings are spent photographing portraits at Brant Point or Sankaty Lighthouse, in Sconset or Madaket, on Steps Beach or Jetties, and so many more magical places. We photograph nearly 100 Nantucket portrait sessions in that time, primarily family portraits! Our sessions are casual and fun rather than stiff and posed. We love capturing families as they interact with one another, making each other smile and laugh.
We have so many favorite locations on island to photograph families, but the best is when there’s a spot that’s special to that family. Where dad proposed to mom, their summer home, the beach they always go to, or where their baby took his first steps. It’s also fun to introduce a family to a new beach or one of our secret spots and make them fall in love with Nantucket in a new way.
Seeing the same families year after year is so special. It reminds us that what we do is more than snapping photos, it’s documenting life and memories.
Below are highlights by Zofia & Mark of the 2019 portrait season, just one photo from about half the sessions we captured this past season. If you’re looking for a Nantucket portrait photographer during your next vacation or you’re a local who would like summer portraits, be sure to contact us soon! Our portrait calendar begins to book up over the winter for peak dates, and fills up about 4-6 weeks prior in the summer.
