The day after Christmas was a perfect day for a family photo session this year. It wasn’t too cold, especially out of the wind, and the sun was actually out, which is worth celebrating about considering how grey December has been. I have photographed this family a lot over the years so I’ve been able to watch the little one grow up. As you will see, horses are merely an extension of her. It was great seeing the interaction between them, especially with the larger horse, who clearly adores her. I hope you enjoy this little preview!Apparently glittery high heels is perfectly acceptable footwear while feeding the chickens!
November can be a windy, cold and raw month, so on this particular day for the DeGeer family photo session, November sang loud and clear! Ah, but we live in Maine so we can handle whatever mother nature gives us, right? Absolutely! Real troopers if you ask me. Even Little Red Riding Hood made an appearance! See for yourselves.
It isn’t every day that you meet someone who lived most of their life in a location you grew up in, but on Sunday I met such a family. Not only did they live in the same city I grew up in but one of their daughters is going to a school that once was an all boy school but is now merged with the school I went to for nine years! Oh, and it gets better. While they were here for the weekend they were staying at their friends house, who has since taken a job in my home town, and I just met her this past June. How’s that for a small world!
This was a fun photo shoot, to say the least. I suggested we go to this beautiful location where I have done countless sessions. The wonderful thing about the Damariscotta River Association is you can venture into new territory every time you go there. The late day light was perfect, the milkweed pods were open, and we found some man made grass huts. Well, they were most likely “child made” huts! I hope you enjoy your preview!
