I am incredibly grateful that my job is something I absolutely love and always look forward to doing. I meet the nicest people in the most gorgeous places, and as you will see, this session is a prime example. Autumn is my most favorite time of year and getting to spend a couple of hours in the warm sun surrounded by breath taking beauty is simply unbeatable! I had such a great time with these three! What a life they have together, so full of love and beauty. I hope these photos will give you at least a glimpse of why I love what I do!
When I got a phone call from a young mother inquiring about having a photo session of her newborn baby boy, I just assumed she would want me to come to her house. Not this one! After several minutes into our conversation she asked if we could have the photos taken at an apple orchard. Yes, of course! Absolutely! How perfect would that be, especially at this time of year when the air is still warm enough and the colors are spectacular. They brought an apple crate and a beautiful galvanized oblong washtub with wooden handles as well as the cutest little lamb toy. Oh, of course they also brought their little bundle dressed in a pair of jeans and tiny sneakers! So here they are, a very sweet adventurous family.Love the expression on his face! Wonder if there will be any attitude to go along with that when he gets older!
There is a special place in Midcoast Maine called the DRA – Damariscotta River Association. It is one of my favorite spots to meet clients for their photo sessions. These two adorable sisters were real troopers. The oldest one kept wanting to go further and further, even though I reminded her that the farther we walked the longer it would take to get back to the car. She didn’t seem to care! Her mother assured me that she loved to go for really long walks and would most likely hold up till the end of our session. She did, except for just a little distance I offered to give her a piggy back ride.
Mom told me she could get lots of photos of her eldest daughter smiling but her youngest was always so serious whenever the camera was pointed in her direction. I decided the best tactic was distraction – running down hills, playing with leaves and milkweed pods and just plain old “lets go on an adventure!” It worked like a charm!Every day we create memories. How often do you preserve them so that years from now you can re-live those very important everyday moments of your life? It’s never too late to start.
