I met up with Sierra and Joe a few weekends ago on the cutest little hidden beach a little before sunset. These two are planning an August 2021 wedding and wanted to take advantage of the fantastic beach weather we’ve had most of this summer for their engagement session. There isn’t much better than Maine summers and we couldn’t have asked for a better afternoon!

Sierra and Joe, I am so honored that you chose me to photograph your big day and I hope you love this little sneak peek<3

I have a few sneak peeks that are a bit over due thanks to trying to squeeze a little last bit of summer in with family while also working full time and prepping for a very busy fall season. So, without further ado I invite you to meet miss Jordyn whose proud parents also just recently appeared on the blog for their maternity session. Jordyn was not unlike most newborns in the studio and made sure I knew that she was going to run things, but with a little patience we were able to capture all her sweetness <3

It is a little unbelievable when I stop and count the number of years it has been since I first met Bre. And even then I am not sure I have the number quite right, but I do know it is something like 12! I have had the opportunity to coach this sweet girl as a really young sideline cheerleader and in more recent years in high school field hockey. She has always been and still is a little spitfire. This is a girl who can sometimes seem unsure of herself, but always knows exactly what she wants to say and never has a problem speaking her mind and advocating for what she wants/needs. Whether she ever expected motherhood to come so early in her life or not, there is no doubt in my mind that if her little girl inherits any of Bre’s personality, the rest of the world is in for a wild ride

I first met Madi when she was a fifth grader and I had the honor of being her first ever cheer coach. She was a girl who was willing to try anything, even if it meant being a flier who was “a little” afraid of heights. As she progressed, her sweet sass proved to be monumental as she was often placed in a routine where she could showcase her sass and add some really fun elements to our routines. Off the cheer mat, Madi is less sass and more funny and sweet. So when her family made the decision to move to another school district a few years ago, I was definitely sad that we wouldn’t get to see her as much. This move proved to be a big one for Madi’s high school cheer career though. She is a strong and confident cheerleader with a coach who still recognizes her sass and dance skills, which have contributed to her squad having some great successes over the past few years.

Madi, I am so honored that you asked me to photograph your senior session. I have been so blessed to coach some really amazing kids over the past twelve years, and you are among one of those favorites whose hear and soul shines both on and off the mat.   Have a great senior year<3

I don’t know if it is just the excitement of spring or what, but so many of my friends have recently adopted new puppies or are in the searching stage right now. There is no way in heck I am going to pass up puppy snuggles or the chance to photograph them! And yup, this is something I don’t normally do, but I definitely think it should be. I mean really. Look at this face <3

Meet Colin. This sweet boy was just welcomed to one of the most amazing families I know.  Also one of the loudest, which can only mean he was a whole lifetime of fun ahead of him…and I am so excited to watch him grow up. But for now, we can just let him be little and I definitely soaked up every second of snuggle time during his newborn session. Apparently he is a fantastic and chill sleeper, unless you are photographing him. This session was definitely on his terms and I’m pretty sure that’s also a sure sign that his little personality is going to fit right in with his new family<3

I hope I never ever have to stop photographing Emily and her siblings….and the entire rest of her extended family for that matter!  Not only are they just the sweetest bunch, but it has been so fun to see them grow and all the little personalities of siblings and cousins develop.  During Emily’s six month session, our fingers were crossed that she’d be a little less serious than her big sister, who completely refused to smile for pretty much her entire first year during her sessions. Well, Miss Emily did not disappoint with smiles that were much easier to come by:)

This past week I got to meet little Augustine for the first time and spend a little time with his sweet family. I have known Hillary for at least twelve years now and I was so excited for her, Matt and Mattie to welcome their little boy into the world. Mattie is the best big sister …I mean the best. This little boy is not going to get away with anything as he grows up, nor is anything terrible every going to happen to him because his big sister is constantly by his side. I can’t wait to see their bond grow even more as they both grow up. Auggie was not a big fan of sleeping during his session and when he was awake, he definitely gave us some of the best faces for photos;)  Here are a few favorites<3

It’s always fun when your business brings you to cross paths with old friends, and that’s exactly what happened with Evan’s senior session. Evan’s stepmom and I went to high school together and I always thought she was one of the kindest people on the planet. And that HAS to be true, because Evan is also a sweet kid and that has to be thanks also to how well his mom and stepmom co-parent. I don’t think most people realize how much of a challenge blending families can be and, in the short time we were all together, it was evident that these two moms had their stuff together.

Evan was awesome to photograph and went along with whatever I asked him to do. I really enjoyed our conversation about track and how terrifying the hurdles really are as we moved throughout the arboretum to each location. Evan has such a sweet and easy going personality that is undoubtedly going to take him far in life.
