Normally at this time of the year, I am offering Christmas mini sessions. And this year due to a change in studio locations and things not being wrapped up quite yet, I haven’t had that opportunity.  So when one a favorite family asks for a mini session, we turn it into a full session which was wayyyy more fun than any mini session would have been. Seriously though, who wouldn’t love cookies for breakfast on a Sunday morning?!

This family will always hold a special place in my heart and I am so honored to have photographed so many important milestones in their lives. I also kind of can’t believe that it was already time to photograph Spencer’s six month session! And not only was I ready for capturing six months, we snuck in some family photos and did my best to capture Madden’s quirky personality as well. Madden has become such a great big sister and she constantly makes me laugh. She is also FULL of energy and a bit exhausting. I. Love. Her.  Spencer is also beginning to develop his own personality and finds his big sister fascinating and a bit silly.

It’s almost beyond comprehension how long I’ve been photographing Liv, and that’s totally okay with me since she is adorbs and now has one of the cutest little boys on the planet!  Not to mention a little boy who’s first words were “Deb-Deb”! *Swoon* Of course Oliver was his super rambunctious self and made up his own rules for pretty much our entire session. But that’s okay, because we all know I love a good challenge… and a fun way to get all my steps in for the day!

When Ashley contacted me to set up Avery’s one year session, I was a bit in disbelief that this sweet girl was already turning one. The last time I photographed her, she was less than two weeks old!  That was also in my old and cramped studio, so the opportunity to spread out in the new space and even shoot outside under the apple trees was so much fun. Miss Avery was simply perfect for her session. Even if we didn’t get much for smiles, her quirky little expressions defined her adorable personality perfectly.

After having the opportunity to photograph Josh and Tuesdae’s wedding four years ago, life clearly has had it’s way of keeping us on separate paths since this was my first time meeting little Nolan! All three boys pretty much thought that anything would’ve been better than family pictures, but we worked through their stubbornness and got some great shots anyway;)

Josh and Tuesdae, thank you for asking me to shoot these for you. Enjoy your sneak peek!

It’s been two years since this family was last on the blog. And in that time Ben and Bethany managed to add another sweet little girl to their bunch!  Miss Julia is so full of curiosity and smiles and fits perfectly with her siblings. We had so much fun exploring the garden at Pineland Farms and the kids were all troopers as we searched for bits of shade and enjoyed a little refreshing sprinkle from the gorgeous fountain. I’ve definitely said it before, but it is worth saying again, Ben and Bethany have the sweetest little family and are always such a joy to be around. Thanks for another fun session guys!

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 got to spend a small part of my morning with a few of my favorite people before an afternoon filled with a few Christmas mini sessions. There is so much personality in this little family and it makes me so happy to have the opportunity to capture as much of it as possible. Of course, my kids adore these kids too and it melts my heart when our sessions end with talk of plans to get the kids together to play, while us moms enjoy the benefits of them all being distracted by one another;)Severy2016 1 1024x708 Stefen + Amanda + Cody + Eli + Emmalyn | Litchfield, Maine family photography Severy2016 2 1024x773 Stefen + Amanda + Cody + Eli + Emmalyn | Litchfield, Maine family photography Severy2016 3 1024x773 Stefen + Amanda + Cody + Eli + Emmalyn | Litchfield, Maine family photography Severy2016 4 1024x773 Stefen + Amanda + Cody + Eli + Emmalyn | Litchfield, Maine family photography Severy2016 5 1024x708 Stefen + Amanda + Cody + Eli + Emmalyn | Litchfield, Maine family photography Severy2016 9 1024x708 Stefen + Amanda + Cody + Eli + Emmalyn | Litchfield, Maine family photography

There is this little thing called life that seems to pass as quickly as we blink. Too often we take every little moment for granted and just keep moving forward. And while moving forward is generally a fantastic thing, sometimes moments that are amazing memories are too quickly forgotten….which is why we need photography. We need photos to remind us not just of the big moments and special events in our lives, but to capture life as it is right now. To capture life in the smallest moments. To remember what our kids are like exactly at this second in time. And to remember exactly how it feels when you fall in love with your spouse all over again every single day. It may have been 5 years since this adorable family had last scheduled a session, but after these toothless grins, I’m going to bet we won’t let another five years slip away.

The last few weeks have been super busy with sessions, which means this weekend is crammed full of more sessions plus trying to get everything all caught up before our own mini vacation next week. Which also means, there is lots of fun to be had on the blog. First up is a little session created just for one special grandma who requested photos of all her grandbabies. Well, most of them aren’t quite babies anymore and there was quite a bit of persuading them all to stick around for photos before jumping in the lake…..but we still managed to get some good ones:)
