It’s that time of the year in Midcoast Maine when people seem to start seeping out of the woodwork. The air is warmer, no threat of snow, the many beaches become happily populated with families from near and far. And it’s also the most popular time of the year to have a family photo session.
Don’t let another year or an important event go by without documenting it! Time travels at warp speed when you have children. After they are all grown up one of the most enriching things to share with them or to do by yourself is to look back over your family photos.
Nostalgia can be both bitter and sweet, separately or at the same time.
I’d love to be the one to turn your special, everyday moments into a lasting legacy. Contact me to schedule your session. firstname.lastname@example.org

After three weeks of ducklings living in my house, it was definitely time for them to move out into the barn. They have a rather large space – a 12 x 12 foot horse stall which became a chicken coop and is now a duck house with one hen, Polly Anna. Needless to say, we are all happy. They have more space, I have less clean up and no more duck poop stench in the house. Aren’t they beautiful? The colorful ones are three-and-a-half week old Welsh Harlequins, and the smaller yellow ones are two-and-a-half week old Buff Orpington ducklings. Here they are checking out their new digs.
Keep scrolling down for some swimming action and Australian dog bliss!
Oh I just love their markings!
My Australian Shepherd, Cody, has been watching these ducklings since they arrived. He would sit on the other side of their huge dog crate brooder and watch their every move. It looked like he was stalking them, and maybe he was, but I didn’t want to find out so I didn’t give him any personal contact with them until a few days ago. He adores them and becomes very concerned if they are peeping their discontent when being put from box to pool back to box to barn! But he finally has a job! Yay for a herding dog!
This totally cracks me up when they look up to see what’s going on, especially when a bird flies overhead!
Cody pays the most attention to Mini Pearl, who is the smallest duckling. He is such a mother hen!
Here he is trying to give her a bath!
When they do this I just want to reach down and blow raspberries on their belly!
Nothing like having all your ducks in a row!
Time to forage and dry off. My pretty female Welsh Harlequin, Daisy.
Love the patterns their feathers make. Can’t wait to see them fully feathered out!
“I promise I won’t peck you on the nose, Cody.”
“Oopps, I forgot!!”
