Winter Scenes at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse

There is nothing more harsh or beautiful than winter in Maine.  This past week Mother Nature decided to serve us copious amounts of snow, along with bitter cold and unrelenting winds.  I decided to brave the elements yesterday to see what it looked like at Pemaquid Point.  I was hoping to see huge waves but since the winds were blowing onshore, the waters looked strangely calm along the rocks, although there were plenty of whitecaps further out.  As you will see from the photos, the wind was whipping the snow around so I only stayed for about 15 minutes.  By then my fingers were freezing, even with gloves on.

It’s hard to believe that this is one of the most popular locations for weddings in Midcoast Maine.  But it is.  Hidden beneath the many layers of winter are weddings waiting to come to life.

Shaw-Nickerson Family

Maine Family PhotographerThe 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!Maine Family PhotographerMaine Family PhotographerMaine Family PhotographerApparently glittery high heels is perfectly acceptable footwear while feeding the chickens!Maine Family PhotographerMaine Family PhotographerMaine Family PhotographerMaine Family PhotographerMaine Family PhotographerMaine Family PhotographerMaine Family PhotographerMaine Family PhotographerMaine Family Photographer

The DeGeer Family

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.
