The Birthday Boy - Maine Family Photography

Madox, the birthday boy, turned two.  He is the funniest, sweetest happy-go-lucky toddler I've ever met.  His expressions are priceless!  The good thing about being born in the summer is birthday parties can be outdoors and usually involve water.

I've learned that when you live in Maine, don't count on the weather forecast to be accurate.  It was supposed to be a partly to mostly sunny weekend, but I know we saw more clouds than sun, and we even had some rain showers - at the time of this session, as a matter of fact!  Even so, we packed in a lot of giggles and plain old fun and excitement during our session.  It doesn't really take much to make a wee one happy, and I'm telling you, can this little guy smile and laugh!  Abby and Mark, you are very lucky to have such a happy child, who is obviously loved to pieces!  I'll hush now and get on with the show!This black and white image is one of my favorites of the trio.  I love candid photos because they really capture authentic moments.  Plus, it isn't easy to get a toddler to hold still for a posed shot, at least not for very long!

What a face!!  I just smile every time I see this!

"No, I want to run into the ocean!  No more pictures, please!!"

Thank you Abby, Mark and Ethan for such a fun time in Pemaquid.  I hope you enjoy your preview.  Stay tuned, there are more to come!

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!!

I had the absolute best time yesterday photographing a mother-daughter session!  Just in time for Father's Day!  Their dresses were beyond adorable!  We were very lucky that the weather cooperated, considering we've had nothing but rain, clouds or fog for what seems likes weeks now.
