Family Photos in Friendship, Maine

Maine Family PhotographyWhat can I say, except I am so blessed to have the privilege to photograph the sweetest families at the most gorgeous locations in Maine!  And this family ranks very high in the sweet and adorable category.  Never a dull moment with a three year old and ten month old, but I have to pat myself on the back for managing to capture what I feel are honest moments in the life of such a young family.  Not everyone is looking at the camera in each shot, and quite honestly I'm glad.  In fact, I think the images where they are all engaged with each other are the best shots.  Take a look and decide for yourselves ~Maine Family PhotographyMaine Family PhotographyMaine Family PhotographyMaine Family PhotographyMaine Family PhotographyMaine Family PhotographyMaine Family PhotographyMaine Family PhotographyMaine Family PhotographyMaine Family PhotographyMaine Family PhotographyMaine Family PhotographyMaine Family PhotographyMaine Family PhotographyMaine Family PhotographyMaine Family PhotographyMaine Family PhotographyMaine Family PhotographyMaine Family PhotographyIt took till the very last shot of the session to get what I consider an authentic smile from this little cutie.  I had to turn into a tickle monster, but hey, whatever it takes!  I hope you enjoy your preview!  There are many more jewels to show you so I will end here and get back to the editing board!

The Chapman Family

I just met the sweetest family the other day who won a photo session from one of the auctions I have donated to recently.  I love to support the local community and I can't think of a better way to do so than by giving, especially if I can give of my talents, which will serve both the cause and the recipients.It was another beautiful, unseasonably warm day here in Maine for a photo session.  I know I've said this many times, but the light at this time of year is exceptional.  I have been so pleased to be doing sessions well into November.  I really would like to do them outdoors all winter, as long as it isn't frigid.Both Elliott and Arabella were such sweet little troupers.  I often wonder what goes through children's heads when someone they don't know shows up with a camera in hand asking them to do this and that.  For the most part they indulged me with a pose here and there, but I know it's asking a lot of 2 and 5 year olds so I kept it as light as possible.  In the end, I'd say we got some pretty good shots!Thank you, Emery and Troy, for sharing your family with me.  I hope your enjoy your preview.  I think we have a few jewels in there!

I think it's important to include the animal members of the family as well, especially since they were so willing!

It's the moments in between the moments that create memories that move the heart ~
