An Adventuresome Family Photo Session

There are countless things I love about my job as a photographer, but the one thing that drives it home the most for me are the amazing people I get to meet.  Not just a hand shake “hi, nice to meet you,” but an honest glimpse into their unique lives.  I might spend half an hour or two hours with them and in that seemingly small space of time, I immortalize it for them.  I create a time capsule for them to slip into whenever they need or want to remember.

This family took me on an adventure up the ridge from their house and I swear if felt like I was no longer in Midcoast Maine.  There were large granite mounds partly covered in thick moss, surrounded by wintergreen, blueberry and huckleberry bushes, and an array of trees, some of which were used for climbing.  It was a magical place that suited this family perfectly.  There were songs being sung, piggy back and shoulder rides, plus lots of laughter.  After our adventure we ended up in their garden that was lush with a variety of yummy greens, as well as broccoli flower bouquets!  Needless to say, it was a good time had by all!Maine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's PhotographerMaine Children's Photographer

Family Photos on Vinalhaven

I have never been to Vinalhaven before so when I got an inquiry about a family session, giving me the choice of either them coming to me or I go to them, I jumped at the opportunity to get on a ferry!  The one plus hour trip was gorgeous.  As the boat approached the harbor, everything I saw made it obvious that this is a fishing community.

While dad was out on his boat doing what Maine fishermen do, mom was at home with their three little ones doing what all moms do – keeping up with the seemingly constant growth of the children.  I felt lucky to get to tag along with my camera, keeping pace with their ever changing play.  But that is what I love about children – always exploring and expressing their world – and me, well I grab hold of tiny specs of who they are so at the end of a long day mom and dad can remember and say yeah, all of this is so worth it!Maine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerMaine Childrens PhotographerThank you so much for welcoming me to your life on the island!  I had such a great time and can’t wait to show you the rest of the photos!

Family Photos in a Field

I met this family when Rachael’s sister was getting married.  She was pregnant with her second child and a few months after he was born I took their first family photos on a beach. Now, a little more than two years later, a third child has entered the picture.  Talk about busy!!  We had such a great time in the front yard on the swings and then out back in a beautiful field full of milkweed.  I’m sure mom and dad must have wondered if I even got a single good shot since three active boys can only sit still for a millisecond!  Well, no worries, my camera can actually run faster than they can!  I feel confident that I accurately portrayed this family’s life as it is right now.  What do you think?Maine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerMaine Children PhotographerAnd there you have it.  A perfect example of life with three little boys!  I hope you enjoyed your preview!  Can’t wait to show you the rest!  For everyone else who is scrolling through these photos, it’s still not too late to run through the field or along a beach or through the woods with your family.  I’d be more than happy to follow you around with my camera, too!
