2 month old baby girl

maine lifestyle photographer

When I get a call from a friend who I absolutely adore, and she asks me to photograph her sweet little two year old, my heart just melts.  This age seems so magical to me …. the wide eyes, the flailing legs, the almost smile (okay, maybe gas … ), the cute outfits, and the nursery that is almost always dressed just perfectly.  Be still, oh heart!!!

I’ve known Lianna when she worked for Center for Grieving Children, when I did a lot of volunteer photography for the organization.  We became fast friends, and now she is a Mom — a wonderful, attentive, nurturing, loving mom.  And although I don’t know Nick very well, it’s clear he has this diaper and Dad thing down pat!

This is a wonderful age for a lifestyle session … you know, capturing those seemingly ordinary moments that when frozen in time, are really quite extraordinary.  Here is Lianna, Nick and little lady Jocelyn …

This.  Little.  Girl.

She was born not breathing, and they didn’t know for how long she had been without oxygen.  She was handled with care, this beautiful, strong, fierce little fighter, because she was precious stock and she was needed by so many people.   There were lots of phone calls, texts, tears, prayers, and faith.  They worked, and as it turns out, she is pretty darn perfect.

Meet Joey —  Princess Warrior extraordinaire, and she is a delight!  She is the granddaughter of my dear friend Kristi, and the daughter of my darling friend Lindsay, who I remember as a sweet little baby herself, and have watched grow into a lovely woman and now a mom.  My heart is full that I get to now watch little Joey sprout from an infant into toddlerhood and beyond (no rush…), to document the days ahead and photograph her in all her specialness.

Ten little fingers and ten little toes.  Beautiful blue eyes and a sweet button nose.  I didn’t intend to make that rhyme, but there you go.  She inspires me.  🙂

Enjoy these images of a sweet little one who has turned this world on it’s side — in a good way!

Last week you saw photos of my maternity session with Val.  Well, it was really HER maternity session with me.  Let’s just make that one clear….  🙂  If you missed that  post, then click }here{   It’s really sweet!

Val is the sweet wife of my awesome, handsome, smart, funny, kind and loving nephew Joe.  They were married seven years ago (last week to be exact…) and are now expecting their second child — a girl! — and her name is Riley.  How cute is that?  Riley’s big brother, Cam, was on hand for the maternity session that was also a sweet family session with some heart-stopping father and son moments.  We’re at Kettle Cove, on the beach, with a sunset.  *sigh*

So feast your eyes on this wonderful family who I love with all my heart!  They will soon be four, and we can’t wait!!

a little life expected | maine maternity photographer

I’ll love you always.

Creating life is one of the most beautiful, most incredible, most extraordinary events to grace a person’s being and I sure love photographing it!  My heart jumps at the honor of documenting such a special time in a person’s life, and when it’s Val, it’s pretty awesome!  Val is very busy cooking up her 2nd baby (it’s a girl!) due this summer, and so she and her handsome husband and their happy-as-can-be little boy came up to Maine specifically for a styled maternity session with me.  (Insert my squeal of delight here…)

After much discussion and preparation — the perfect-for-her dress (from Sew Trendy Accessories),  the sweet floral crown (from Harmons), and some yummies with which to celebrate (from Whole Foods), we were ready on this beautiful early summer Saturday afternoon.  We went to Kettle Cove in Cape Elizabeth … a place that, in my mind, offers everything a photographer could want (woods! beach! rocky coastline! sunset!) … OH!  the beauty of it all!  But nothing tops the beauty of Val … just look!

Right??  This post focuses on Val and her beautiful baby bump.  Another post will be coming soon that shows off the entire family.  In the meantime, enjoy the loveliness that is Val.

wolfe’s neck farm, freeport, maine maternity photographer | beautiful baby belly

maternity at sunset

Last summer I was so honored to photograph the wedding of Leigh and John.  The celebration took place at Wolfe’s Neck Farm in Freeport — in the barn, and it was lovely!  Fast forward several months and I get a message that they were expecting a baby!  Woohoo!  They enrolled in my Moms & Miracles program — 5 sessions for one price — that documents the baby’s first year from womb to one (sounds so Elmer Fudd-ish!).  It’s a special program that shows the growth and all the mind-boggling changes of a little one in that first very fleeting year.

Anyhow, I adore these two so imagine my excitement at photographing them again, along with their growing family! I’m happy to report that this baby has already been born and photographed too!  More of those images later.  First, here is Leigh and John on their wedding day.

Well, that wedding was  so much fun that we thought the Farm would be a great place for their maternity photos as well.  It was a lovely spring evening in June with a sunset that didn’t disappoint!  Leigh’s baby bump was the star, and we had a great time!
