I don’t even know where to start with this girl, and how in the heck has the past six months gone by sooooo fast?! Madden was yet again not a fan of smiling during her session, but with a lot of patience and a sudden discovery of her preference for “monster voices” got her to come out of her shell a bit. And I’m sure her sweet parents are as glad as I am that there is not some hidden video camera in the studio, because we were all 110% on our game with the crazy voices and ridiculous antics in our efforts to coax just one little smile out. Even Charlie offered his sweet doggy nose for a smile!  It’s a good thing she’s cute…how do you think we did? Oh, and just a little warning…daddy reading to Madden just might make your uterus go crazy <3

It’s so much fun when client’s come back into the studio after a year. And even more so when it’s to celebrate their first birthday! Corbin’s mom wanted to play this one pretty simple with no big fanfare or cake smash, and with steel blue eyes like this boy’s, there was no need for anything extravagant<3

As a mom, it is bittersweet watching your kids grow older and build their own futures and sometimes that empty nest feeling can be unbearable. So when Beth knew the exact dates her kids would be home for the holidays, she made sure to get this family session scheduled. And yes, this was shot just a few hours before this awesome state of ours was “blessed” with nineteen inches of snow! So we shot quickly with little hand warming breaks here and there, doing our best to avoid red noses and to capture some of this family’s amazing new property as well as their laid back love for one another.

I really love shooting high school seniors and get to enjoy those sessions 99% of the time in the summer and fall months. But there’s this one sweet family who has come to love spending their holidays in Maine and have not blinked twice at the thought of having their kids’ senior photos done at the tail end of December. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Abby and William are probably the only students in their Virginia high school whose senior photos feature snow! And I’ll also say that I am super thankful that William’s session was much warmer than the negative temps during Abby’s two years ago.

Soooo….with one handsome senior boy, one awesome big sister, a couple of amazing parents and two dogs that are so ugly they’re cute….here are a few of my favorites from William’s senior session:)
