Marathon Lifestyle Sessions Day: Sneak Peek

If you’ve ever lived through a Maine winter, you understand the need to squeeze every last drop of summer out of every single year…even when summer seems to extend more and more often into mid-to-late October–maybe even especially then. That never holds more true than when Portrait Season begins where Wedding Season leaves off, and judging by the crowds of families being led by photographers at the Vaughn Woods in Hallowell Sunday, we all knew last Sunday may be the last really nice warm Sunday we’d have before all the leaves are blown off the trees (because, say it with me, Winter Is Coming).

Fortunately the Vaughn Woods State Park is huge, offering LOTS of awesome locations for photos, so while my first session was able to get some portraits in by the pretty stone bridge and little falls that come down from the dam above, the rest of my sessions (two more family sessions and a senior modeling session) moved above the rocks to the beautiful sunlit field.

I’d love to hear what you think — and P.S. I suspect we’ll have a couple of warm weekends still ahead in November, but even if it’s cold, message me now to schedule¬†your family’s lifestyle session!

Lifestyle Session: Sophia and Asia

With wedding season in full swing, I don’t have a lot of opportunity to do Lifestyle Sessions these days. What’s a “Lifestyle Session,” you ask? It’s an hour long portrait session where I capture life as it happens, whether it’s with a couple, a family, or an adorable toddler like Sophia.

Sophia’s gram, Jan, emailed me last week to see if I might be able to squeeze in a Lifestyle Session because her granddaughter, Sophia, and daughter-in-law, Asia, were visiting them at their camp from Washington, D.C.

I’m so glad I found a way! Sophia was an adorable little ham for the camera, and though it was pouring when I first arrived, the sun was out within minutes, and we were able to move outside with her and her gorgeous and beyond sweet mom, Asia.

I LOVE photographing kids! And Asia and I got to chat about my move ten years ago from the D.C. area to rural Maine while I worked which was an added bonus. Thank you so much, Jan and family, for choosing me to capture your very special granddaughter!
