Meucci/Ben-Horin Family | Beach Mini Session | Gooseberry Island Westport, MA

Hello, everyone! For those who don't know - I nanny part-time during the week. Before I started my photography career, I was a preschool teacher. My dream job was a child life specialist. (Child life specialists are pediatric health care professionals who work with children and families in hospitals and other settings to help them cope with the challenges of hospitalization, illness, and disability.) I was diagnosed with an immune deficiency and my dream job goals were crushed. I was told I couldn't work with large groups of children, and especially in hospitals. It's too dangerous. It was a knock down for sure. ⠀

However, photography clearly is what I was meant to do. It's my heart and soul. I missed working with kids, and have goals so a steady income was needed, so I turned to nannying. Again - something I really love to do! ⠀

The youngest girl in the photo, I started nannying for her when she was about 3 months old. She’ll be three in December! The years flew by! Her family just moved to another state last week and I already miss her and her family so much. So, while these photos are for the family, they mean a lot to me too!

Photographing this family one last time at Gooseberry Island in Westport, MA was such a beautiful day. I hope you enjoy all of these sweet sneak peeks!
