Just a few months ago, Cynthia contacted me to inquire about shooting her maternity session. Of course, this wasn’t too long after she had visited the studio to surprise her hubby with a boudoir session…which she totally rocked….while completely unaware she was already pregnant! I was over the moon excited for Cynthia and Nick and the ocean breeze was perfect for their beach session and the new maternity gown I had just ordered <3

I love when things feel like they come full circle…or at least when I get to photograph the sibling of a past senior client. Just three years ago, I was shooting Shayna’s big sister’s senior photos and found myself watching the sunrise and dodging raindrops on Willard Beach while shooting Shayna’s own session. I may have been exhausted from a late night of wedding shooting the night before, but Shayna’s adorable smile and perfect location made the whole morning completely worth it. Shayna, thank you for being probably the only senior who is brave enough to choose an early morning session and also for being your adorable self. I wish you nothing but the best next year and in your path to a career in education<3 Shayna 1 {Portland, Maine senior photographer} Shayna: Class of 2016 Shayna 3 {Portland, Maine senior photographer} Shayna: Class of 2016 Shayna 4 {Portland, Maine senior photographer} Shayna: Class of 2016 Shayna 6 {Portland, Maine senior photographer} Shayna: Class of 2016 Shayna 8 {Portland, Maine senior photographer} Shayna: Class of 2016 Shayna 10 {Portland, Maine senior photographer} Shayna: Class of 2016

I love me a chunky baby, and Miss Stella does not disappoint. Weighing in at 10 pounds at just two weeks, she was perfect for snuggling! And her big brother and sister thought so too!  These kids certainly kept me on my toes and we still managed to get some great shots even if things were a bit challenging from time to time;) No matter how challenging though, the one thing that is for certain is that Stella has siblings that simply adore her<3

Brooklyn is another sweet babe whom I first met when her parents requested hospital photos at Central Maine Medical Center. Lucky for me, she decided that her mom, dad and big brother should get in on the fun too and they all came to visit me in the studio. Brooklyn wasn’t all that excited about staying sleepy for pics, but we did manage a few and omg dind’t she look so sweet in her daddy’s big arms!  We also lucked out with the weather being super warm and grabbed some fun family shots to round out this session perfectly. A huge thanks to B’s momma for being super patient in waiting for this post! icon smile {Litchfield, Maine newborn photographer} Brooklyn <3 newborn session

I first met sweet little Lux and her equally sweet parents when I photographed her in the hospital. Lucky for me, they came to visit me in the studio too and I had some really fun plans for a new little apple hat one of the hospital nurses had handed me. Lux was an absolute dream to work with and totally made me look like a rockstar! This also allowed us to use any prop I wanted. Yes, she was that easy going. This little one’s name means light and it fits her so perfectly as she lights up every bit of her mum and dad, who are of course just head over heels in love with her <3 These are just a few of my favorites.

When I first met Alyssa to chat about her wedding plans, I instantly liked her. She is sweet, kind, laid back and simply adorable. We met at Panera which also just happened to be where she met Derrick! On a blind date! And when I met Derrick for the first time at their engagement session, it was a no-brainer that these two belong together. See for yourself…

Derrick and Alyssa, I am so honored that you’ve chosen me to capture such an important moment in your lives. Happy wedding planning and I can’t wait until June! ~Deb

This morning I watched my three youngest get on the bus. One freshman. One fourth grader. One second grader. The younger of my two stepdaughters started her senior year last week, making her the same age as Miss Jessica whom I’ve known for the past nine years. Which makes me feel….really old. I had the honor of shooting Jess’ sister Marissa’s senior photos just three years ago, so when their mom contacted me for Jessica I was so excited to see what we could come up with. Turns out, we ended up with some really beautiful shots and one of my very very new favorites. (It’s the last one here, so you have to endure all the rest of her beauty first!)

Jessica, it has been such a pleasure to have known you and watch you grow. You are such a sweet girl and I wish you nothing but the best your senior year;)
