family expansion | maine family photographer

 

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!!

portland, maine family lifestyle photographer | ferry to peaks island on a summer afternoon

The leaves are falling from the trees and there’s a chill is in the air.  That makes this a perfect time to take a walk down memory lane, to a time when the air was warmer and the closet was full of open-toed sandals.  *sigh*

But first, I first met these folks several years ago when I was photographing their home to sell.  They were warm and engaging, and I knew almost immediately that I’d love to hang out with them, get to know them a little better, and photograph this beautiful family.

So we planned a short trip, stayed local, and had great fun while I was able to capture this sweet family’s love, laughter, and spirited personalities!

The afternoon was warm and cheery — perfect for a ferry ride out to Peaks Island.  We boarded the ferry (Casco Bay Ferry Lines) and began our mini adventure!

Our first stop was the ice cream shop on the corner and we were in a hurry because, really, who doesn’t LOVE ice cream??

We grabbed a handful of bubble gum for later use and took a stroll down the street of this quaint, beautiful Maine island.

And for the rest of the time, we just played, explored, and had fun!  Are these kids gorgeous or what?

This was such a fun few hours.  I especially love the candids that captures their closeness, joy and love!

Family is not an important thing … it’s everything.

Saco, Maine | Bayview Beach Family Photo Session

a beachy morning

For those of you who have sessions with me, you know that it is a necessity to work the session around the best light.  That typically means either early morning or early evening into dusk when the sun is at a slant, providing the most glorious and flattering glow.    Most people choose the early evening option … not that I blame them!  But not this family!  And I love it! This is the second time I’ve photographed this family in as many years, and both times were early morning sessions.  This was so great for so many reasons …..  the light, as I mentioned above, is just lovely, and we had the beach virtually to ourselves except for a few other early morning beach lovers.  We had the opportunity to run around, play, have fun, and capture some really great moments.  The boys have grown for sure, but still have the same handsome smiles I remembered.  They were full of energy, a little mischievous, and full of love for each other.  I mean, look at their happy faces!

We were done by 8:00 a.m.  So I snuck back for a few minutes of solitude.  Breathe in.  Breathe out.  Aaaaahhhhhh.
