Family Hike Portrait Session at Middlesex Fells Reservation | Boston, MA

For those of you who are looking for a rustic, outdoorsy, city-nomad photo session location (that’s great for dogs), look no further.  Middlesex Fells is a HUGE reservation a quick 15 minute drive up 95 from Boston (it makes up part of Medford, Stoneham, and Winchester), and it’s gorgeous!  From parts of it you can see the city, but for the most part you feel like you have been transported to New Hampshire.

This family wanted a location that showed how beautiful the natural scenery is here in New England and their hometown of Medford.  They moved up here a few years ago from Florida, so figured this session would showcase their admiration for the landscape to their friends and family back home.

We started at Sheepfold and then walked to one of the reservoirs, and then back up to the meadow.  Not always easy to photograph adults with a teenager son (sophomore in college), since by this point everyone is quite self-aware.  Different challenges with different age groups!  But Caleb, their adorable dog, kept the family connected, and we had fun exploring the reservation together.

Looking forward to another upcoming photo session at this new favorite location!
