Family Photo Session at Pemaquid

"Summertime,

and the livin is easy . . ."

I had such a good time with Christine and her family a few days ago.  We spent some time at Pemaquid Lighthouse and then to Little Beach, which is just down the road from Pemaquid Beach.  Unfortunately Pemaquid Beach was covered in huge, tall mounds of seaweed, which Hurricane Irene stirred up as she traveled up the coast last Sunday.  As you will see in these photos, the weather was perfect, the children played and I began to realize that these last few weeks of summer are slipping away fast.  Time to get out and enjoy as much as you can, especially while you can go barefoot in the warm sand.

It can be a challenge to have everyone looking at the camera for a group shot, but to tell you the truth, I kind of like it that way.  Don't worry guys, I have more shots in the tree when all eyes are on me, but I thought I'd share this one instead.

And sometimes in a group shot not everyone will feel like smiling, and that's okay, too!  This is life and I am a lifestyle photographer.  It's important to document the laughter and the tears, which makes this a perfect portrait of three sisters!

I hope you enjoy your preview, Christine.  There are definitely more to come!  I hope you had fun in Maine and I truly hope Texas is much cooler when you get back home!!
