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!
