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!!

cape elizabeth engagement photographer | a dog, a sunset and a whole lotta love at kettle cove

I could photograph engagement sessions all day long.  Really I could.  I love working with couples whose love for each other knows no bounds, and whose connection is so very strong with the anticipation of starting their future together.  It’s always fun, it’s always special, and it’s always — always — so meaningful.  It’s an honor to share this special time with these newly engaged couples. That they put their trust in me to document their very own magic is so thrilling to me!  I am always humbled.

This sweet, lovely couple’s session was no different.  The bride-to-be is from the midwest and wanted the session to convey all that Maine has to offer so that the folks back home could get a feel for where she lives now.  We had a hard time deciding where to do the session because there are so many beautiful options!  (Oh, and did I already say how lucky we are who live in Maine for that very reason?)  So this session is actually a three-location session.  Our first stop was behind a lovely little church in Scarborough where we knew there would be some spectacular foliage.








I mean, how handsome is this couple???  Next, we moved on down the road to Kettle Cove in Cape Elizabeth for another Maine experience.  This beautiful spot has it all — woods, ocean, sand, and a rocky shore ….















And then when they told me they had a dog?  My little bit of heaven just got a little brighter!  Bring your fur-legged bestie, please!!!!





At the end of the session, we were in the perfect spot for a killer sunset.  It was a wonderful way to end the evening.





There’s more to this session so stay tuned for Part II!

cape elizabeth lifestyle photographer | the happiest witch of the east

Part II of this two part series 🙂 has no flying monkeys, no falling houses, no threats against little dogs and no hourglasses counting the minutes to doom.   And much to my chagrin, no ruby slippers either.

However, in honor of Halloween — the spookiest and chilling holiday — we have the happiest witch of the east, and her name is Kristi!  (If you missed part I, click here for a brief lesson in Wicca — the practice my friend loves and lives.)


I’ve been wanting to do this session with her for quite some time and when the moon and the stars finally aligned (well, actually, when our mutual schedules offered some free time….), we decided that we couldn’t wait any longer!  A little background here …. a few weeks before, while covering the Laudholm Craft Fair for Maine Magazine, I came across the nicest ladies who were hand crafting — wait for it —- BROOMS!!!!  Sweet, beautiful, hand crafted brooms, made by Haydenville Broomworks,  and there was one that was just perfect for our witchy session!!!!  (Housework?  Don’t be silly…..)


Fast forward to early October, and we are at Kettle Cove in Cape Elizabeth.  Having just finished observing and photographing Kristi’s Wicca practices, it was time to have a little fun!  The sun was setting and the full moon was a-rising!  Magic?  Perhaps.  I say bring it!











We should educate people that “Witch” is not evil but ancient and positive.  The first time I called myself a “Witch” was the most magical moment of my life.

–Margot Addler, Wiccan Priestess



Have a spooktacular Halloween! And as Kristi often says … Blessed Be!

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

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!
