Photo Documentary of a Family Vacation

I recently spent the morning with three lively boys and their parents in one of Maine's gorgeous harbors.  Most of my clients locations are unfamiliar to me, but I can tell you I am never disappointed!  The house rental was at the end of a winding road, which was situated a stones throw away from the water.  The brothers ran and played while I tried to keep up, but luckily my camera is pretty fast!  There is always someone who doesn't want to cooperate, yet I always walk away with a few gems.  

Children love to play, which is why I never have a set of props and poses to coerce them into.   I don't want all of my sessions to be predictable and the same, because each family is unique. The best way to truly capture the emotions and love between each person is to let them be.  When you are engaging with your loved ones, your expressions and smiles are genuine.  And I know for a fact that those are the photos you will treasure the most.  Let's take a look at this adorable family!

Photo Documentary of a Family Vacation

Seems like this little guy is saying "enough already!"  The thing about doing a photo session with young children is their attention span is limited, therefore I stop when they are finished.  I see no need in pushing beyond what they are capable of.

For anyone who is in Maine, or coming to Maine in the next 3 weeks, I am available for a limited number of sessions.  Most noteworthy, by mid October I will be leaving Maine to live in Washington State, which is where I grew up.  I will be with my siblings and mother again, which I am very excited about!  

However, I will continue my photography business in the Tacoma, Olympia, Tumwater, Seattle and surrounding areas.  If you are in any of these areas, I would love to hear from you so we can set up your documentary family photo session!  Please contact me here!
