A Cape Cod Summer Family Photo Session

When I first started speaking to Wanda about Family photos on the Cape in June, they seemed so far away…Now that they’ve happened, I’m having a hard time believing that the 4th of July is right around the corner! I’m trying to do my best to slow down the days and really appreciate everything that the Cape offers in the summer - and I think this family will help me do that!

A Children's Guide to Mashpee Commons - What to do with your kids in Mashpee!

About a week ago, I took the day to wander around Mashpee Commons looking for some local businesses that cater to kids and their families on vacation. I found some great places…and even nicer business owners! Having lived on the Cape off and on since I was four and in Mashpee for the last six years, I’ve seen a lot of change throughout the years - Mashpee Commons has been one of them! I remember when the Commons had a few restaurants, a couple of stores, and a large grocery store. Today, it has over 90 individual stores, with many restaurants, apartments, and even a movie theatre. It really is a great place to wander around on your Cape Cod vacation.

Friday was a perfect Cape Cod day - lots of sun, a slight breeze, barely a cloud in the sky, and nothing different forecasted. I had a Family photo session scheduled for 7:15pm, so I left my house with a little extra time to be able to scope out the beach and make sure there weren’t any unexpected changes.

I closed my windows and thought it was a little bit strange…I continued on towards Dowses Beach and turned left onto the long drive. As soon as I took that turn, everything was grey and I saw a huge fog bank rolling right across the water. The temperature dropped another few degrees and I realized that I couldn’t even see the waves from the parking lot!
