Hope + Travis | A Beachy Summer Family Session | Odiorne State Park | Rye, New Hampshire

Let me start by saying I am obsessed with these three!!!

It feels like Hope and I have been talking forever and a day, and last week I finally got to meet them!!! What was originally supposed to be an engagement session with just Hope and Travis, actually turned into a family session since they recently welcomed their sweet sweet girl, Elodie, into the world!!! I can’t think of anything more precious than adding in your incredibly precious baby in with your engagement portraits!!!

Baby Elodie is such a sweet little addition, who lights up like a Christmas tree for momma and daddy!! There are a series of photos where Hope was holding her and Travis was right over my shoulder talking to her, and OH MY GOSH my little heart couldn’t handle it!!! The little faces she makes are just so perfect, and she is literally such a beautiful combination of her two parents!!!

Ellie Plum did a wonderful job hanging on the beach with me while we got some portraits of just her mom and dad. Hope has this gorgeous smile and laugh that I love, and watching Travis soak up his two girls the whole time was so heart warming. Their wedding plans, too, have shifted quite a bit, but I am just so ecstatic to see them again in a few short weeks when they will have their mini-mony!! I probably will never get enough of taking portraits of these three, and I for sure am going to be so sad when my time with them on their wedding comes to an end!

Travis, Hope and sweet baby Ellie Plum, thank you so much for making the trek this way for your family/engagement portraits!! I can’t wait to celebrate your love again in a few weeks <3 Enjoy some of my favorites!!
