The Carvel's - South Bristol, Maine

It isn't hard to understand why people vacation in Maine.  After all, it's "the way life should be."  I am always amazed by the treasures hidden down the many side roads; treasures that I would never get the chance to see if I weren't doing this fabulous photography job of mine.  This session was a last minute adventure the Carvel's added to their to-do list during their stay in South Bristol.  I am so glad I was available to meet with them at this very special beach.  Take a look, and you'll know what I mean.

While mom was getting ready we took a few shots of the kids in the grass at their rental before we headed to the beach.  Are they not the cutest!!

The girls kept informing me that they only had a certain number of smiles before they ran out!  So sweet!

The hugging pose was their idea.

There's just something about this photo that I adore, closed eyes and all.  Even though I only met Ava that day, I feel like this image contains a lot of her personality, plus I love the fact that she is clinging to her father's shirt, her mom just behind her holding the baby, and her sister just to the bottom left of the photo.  Sigh!

Catherine loved collecting sea glass with Ava.  I just love this shot!  She kept inspecting all her found treasures, and at the end of our time on the beach, I was impressed by all the different colors she found.

And here is baby Drew.  He was such a good trouper!!

Thank you so much for such a fun time, and especially for allowing me to capture some memories of your trip, which I know will bloom into lasting treasures for many years to come.  Stay tuned, there are many more photos!

Gosh, it's December and I'm still doing photo sessions!  Very exciting!  And as you will see in these photos, no snow, and the temperature was in the 50's, making it feel like early fall.I had a great drive down to Yarmouth to meet up with these two young men and their mom.  Donna showed me some portraits of her sons when they were much younger so she decided it was about time to have some current photos taken.  I love black and whites, so was super excited she wanted these to be in black and white as well.

I hope you enjoy your preview, and it won't be long before the rest are finished!
