I had the best time with this family last week!  I have been avoiding fields and wooded areas because of ticks, but the dry weather gave us a green light.  We decided on a forest adventure, which included boats made of bark and frog hopping!  The ladies also had gorgeous wreaths made of moss and flowers they found at The Common Ground Country Fair.  I thought they looked like mother and daughter forest nymphs.  

The weather has been gorgeous all summer and now that fall has arrived, it’s hard to believe the temperatures still remain in the 80’s.  It didn’t rain on our session day, but the parched earth could certainly use a soaking.  I suppose as the season progresses towards winter the precipitation will follow.

Without further ado, lets take a look at this sweet family enjoying a sunny afternoon together!

This is my final week in Maine, which is very hard for me to believe.  I hope to come back next year for a couple of weeks and will be scheduling family photo sessions then.  If anyone reading this lives in the Tacoma, WA area or you know someone who does, let them know about Whimsical Years Photography.  Please contact me here to set up your family documentary photo session!  We’ll have lots of fun together!
