Snowy Family Portraits at the Crane Estate in Ipswich

If you are like me and are obsessed with the show Downton Abbey, then I think you are in for a treat.  When the mother of this beautiful family asked me if I thought the Crane Estate might be a good option for a portrait session location, I practically shrieked.  This seaside mansion has sprawling grounds and grandly decorated rooms that are so fun to explore. (it is almost too overwhelming for just one shoot).  It was the perfect backdrop for this well-traveled (and well-dressed!) Bostonian family.

Was even luckier on the day of the shoot – as you can see it was snowing.  Though a bit cold (see red cheeks and noses) my subjects enjoyed themselves playing and posing outdoors before heading inside to warm up and check out the annual Greening of the Great House.  I highly recommend this weekend-long event to other families with young children – and encourage future clients to book sessions here!
