Sessions on Nantucket & Martha’s Vineyard
Summer 2018



Do you summer on Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard?


Capture your family’s Moments of Grace on your favorite island with a photo experience with acclaimed fine art portrait photographer Ben Larrabee and his wife, Trudie.


Ben and Trudie are available for sessions on Nantucket & Martha’s Vineyard throughout the summer. Dates are by arrangement.


This is a unique and authentic type of art that results from a partnership between us and you. Ben is trained as an artist and his work is in museum collections. He is a portrait photographer because he finds enormous excitement, narrative substance, and creative possibilities in people and their lives. If you would consider adding significant works of art to your home, please talk to us. We think you will be surprised and like many others, you’ll find the opportunity hard to resist. Why shouldn’t some of your art be about you?


Photo sessions take place at your summer house, rental or wherever you are staying.


Let Ben be your island summer photographer.


To schedule a session please contact us at or call 203.656.3807.

Sconset Café on Nantucket, Massachussets

For the past eleven summers the Sconset Café has proudly presented an exhibition of Ben’s family portraits from June to September.


In 2017 Rolf and Cindy Nelson sold the Café to their long-time chef Alex Ulgenalp. This year Alex has decided to show beach scenes instead. We are grateful for the opportunity to have exhibited at the Café. It has been a wonderful experience connecting with ‘Sconset and the families that frequent this beloved restaurant.


The Cafe is open for dinner every night. Reservations are taken for 6:00 pm and 8:00 pm. Free corkage on wines purchased at the Sconset Bookstore next door.

Moments of Grace at Lumber Yard
Amherst, Massachussets

Bell #859 _H3H1326

A permanent photography exhibit of fourteen images is on display at Lumber Yard Restaurant, a modern day bistro located in the Historic District of Amherst, MA.


This newest project, built entirely from raw space by the owners of the famed Sconset Café on Nantucket, was designed to maximize the potential of Ben’s photography. Tracks were installed with lights for each image and paint colors were selected to bring out the tonal range of the black-and-white photographs.


The images chosen for display reflect the philosophy and mission of the restaurant; people connecting, showing their love and spirit for one another.
