“My first…and far from last…encounter with Whimsical Years Photography was from photos taken at the Damariscotta Pirate Rendezvous. The photos were fabulous! I reviewed her web page, had a wonderful conversation with her about her work and chose to have my sons Senior Portraits taken by Whimsical Years Photography as Darlene is able to capture the spirit of an individual. She finds out what is important to the person and lets her talent and lens do the rest! I always look forward to seeing what magic she has created!”

“Darlene is a poet with a lens! She is able to take the mundane and make it magical. Her photography can make us remember just how lucky we are to live on such a spectacular planet. She has the ability to freeze-in-time the love, hope and joy of humanity so that we will never forget how special it is to be alive.
Our photo shoot was fun, safe and full of laughter! (as well as fabulous pictures)”

“It was a pleasure to work with Darlene. We asked her to photograph our family and the time she spent with us (even in the rain) was exciting and fun. Prior to photography day, she explained her services and pricing and there were no surprises. She gave us as much time as we needed since there were six family groups. We were more than pleased with the professional results and enjoyed not having formal, stilted photographs. She was able to capture the varied personalities. We have been sharing Whimsical Years Photography with our Maine friends and we highly recommend this business.”

“This past September my husband and I vacationed with our daughter, son-in-law and three young granddaughters at a beach cottage in Maine. We really wanted to commemorate our first ‘family vacation’ and chose Darlene Terry of ‘Whimsical Years Photography’ to photograph our family. Darlene with her unique low-key approach was able to capture the essence of what is our family. The photographs are something we will treasure always. I find great joy in knowing that sometime many years from now our granddaughter’s will be looking at those photographs with their children and recalling that wonderful summer in Maine. “

“Whimsical Years Photography what a great service. Darlene got right in touch with me when I inquired about her services. Our time line was short but she made it all happen, we met up and made plans. We couldn’t be more happy with our pictures. She really knows how to capture great moments, as well as use the light and surroundings well.
I’m very pleased with her work and would defiantly recommend her.
Thank you Darlene, again for the beautiful wedding pictures we will enjoy them forever!”

“Last fall Darlene came to my home to photograph my 1 1/2yr old granddaughter. We spent hours with her outside, at the barn with the horses and in the swing just playing in the yard. The pictures were beautiful and unique. They are not your run of the mill posed photos. The hardest part was choosing which ones to get. It was a great experience for all of us. Her parents were thrilled with their Christmas gift. We can’t wait to use her again with the two new granddaughters!”
