There's no better way to spend a beautiful spring day then outdoors photographing an amazing family. The Hibbards and I met up at Benson's Park in Hudson, New Hampshire. Benson's Park used to be a wild animal park back in the 70's and 80's. A few years ago, the town renovated the park and now it's a beautiful place with tons of hiking trails, a pond and a great playground for the kids! They still have some of the animal cages, which explains the 4th photo. Kids are like animals, right? Sam, Mary and Dave's son, really wanted to do that shot. I definitely think he'll be a photographer one day!
Mary and Dave are also New Hampshire transplants who said after living all over the United States, this was by far their favorite place. I agreed whole-heartedly. After being here for just about 2 years now, I'm completely in love with this state. Mary and I talked about being a Mom and she warned me that time flies even faster as the kids get older. She said that Abby's freshman year in high school has been the quickest year yet. With my son, Oliver only at age 3, I already feel like time is passing too quickly! This is a great reminder of how important it is to document your family. Before you know it, your children will be all grown up and living lives of their own. It's nice to have a few images of everyone together. Smiling. Laughing. Holding hands. This family obviously enjoys hanging out together. Sam and Abby even get along! I'm so happy I had the chance to get to know the Hibbards and to photograph their love for each other.
Happy Spring everyone!
