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.

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!

Adam met Jen at the local Legion Hall where each of their family are members. From their first conversation, they instantly knew they belonged together. These two are simply perfect for each other….and seriously, so cute! When Jen came to me with the desire to do an engagement session at a local fair, it was an immediate yes for me. But then when they showed up with the most adorable outfit selection and the request for a vintage vibe, my insides were screaming…YES! So, while we may have looked a little out of place, we ignored all the side glances and explored the fair like we were still twelve years old. All sessions should be this much fun<3

I haven’t known Kaylei quite as long as I have the past two seniors I’ve posted here on the blog, but that doesn’t mean I adore her any less. Kaylei is a sweet and quiet girl who has recently become one of my daughter’s closest friends, and I am so grateful for that. I feel like we all need certain types of friends in our lives – one of which is a friend who isn’t too quick to react and in turn keeps you grounded. Kaylei has a simplicity and maturity to her that far surpasses many adults I know, and I feel that alone is going to take her places in life.

Kaylei, I am so happy that you are a part of my life and Makayla’s, and I wish you nothing but the best your senior year and every day for the rest of your life. Go make us proud, kid <3

When I found out that Becky and Ashley were expecting, I was so happy for them! The path to creating this sweet little life was not easy and the love that Miss Avery is surrounded with is beyond compare. I’m pretty sure Avery knows this too. She is such a chill baby with a gorgeous head of hair already! Oh, and I am pretty sure this babe smiled more than any newborn I have ever had in the studio. Be prepared to have your hear melt…<3

I have been beyond blessed to have Jake’s family as a part of my family’s life over the past couple years, but at the same time haven’t really gotten to truly know Jake. This teenage boy does what most teenage boys with two much younger sisters would do and prefers to hang out alone or with his buddies. However, whether he wants to admit it or not, he does adore them. And since I really haven’t gotten to know Jake really well, I definitely felt like I would have my work cut out for me shooting his senior session. I met up with Jake and his dad at a local farm and Jake completely surprised me at how comfortable he seemed in front of the camera!  Here are a few faves…

I love that I have such a great working relationship with other photographers and when one of us is in a bind, we do what we can to help out. And in the case of last weekend, it worked out to my benefit because I got to meet and photograph a great big family with a whole lot of the most adorable kids you’ve ever seen. Their personalities were all so different and if their moms hadn’t color coordinate each families outfits, it would be nearly impossible to see the difference between sibling and cousin. And speaking of the moms….three beautiful and sweet sisters who thought their family’s farm was the perfect setting for family pictures. They were right. Add in a few cooperative spouses, an outgoing mom and dad and the sweetest memere ever….it was a perfect afternoon. For capturing memories. For being together. And mostly for having a little fun.

Over the past couple years, I’ve gotten to now Becky a bit throughout a few 5K training runs. I instantly liked her. Maybe it is because I simply adore her sister and it is clear to see that simple kindness is an amazing trait in their family. And while I had only met Ashley a couple times, I knew I would like her just as much. But when these two gals are together, it is obvious they are meant to be together. Each claiming to be shy, their love for each other easily shone throughout every part of our session. So, Ash and Bec…I am so happy that you have each other and I hope you love these as much as I do<3

I was beyond honored to have the opportunity to photograph an amazingly special event this past weekend. Many days it feels like we live in a world where divorce is a word tossed around nonchalantly. But there are still a few kind and loving souls working hard at life, at love, at family, at marriage, at being an inspiration to the rest of us. 50 years. Fifty years of falling in love and staying in love and making it work. And sometime during those fifty years, they created a family. A family that just grew and grew. A family that loves as deeply as they love each other, and who knew the perfect way to celebrate this milestone.

One of the coolest things about this fifty year celebration is that it is actually two anniversaries in one. We gathered to celebrate twin brothers, who married sisters fifty years ago. How cool is that? With family from as far away as California and North Carolina, they all gathered at the gorgeous 1812 Farm in Bristol, Maine to celebrate. Stone Cove Catering put on the most delicious lobster bake and their staff went above an beyond to cater to everyones’ needs. The entire day was filled with love, laughter, dancing and reminiscing….oh, and a couple beautiful cakes by Kennebec Chocolates!

To the entire family, thank you for trusting me to capture this special event for you and with you. And to the happy couples who still do, thank you for being an encouraging example and an inspiration of love and commitment<3

There are often times when I think of particular clients and think, they’re my favorite clients. And then I remember another client and think, oh wait…those ones are my favorites. I seriously have the best job in the world and get to work with the MOST amazing people in this small little corner of our world. Lux and her little family are definitely right up there at the top of my list. Maybe it was her gorgeous eyelashes and crazy hair the moment she was born. Maybe it was the sweet, handwritten thank you note I received shortly after her newborn session. Maybe it was her mom’s fantastic idea to bring her wedding dress for her one year session. Maybe it is the relentless efforts her parents put forward to get her to smile during her sessions, or how much her dad enjoyed her cake even after it was destroyed on the studio floor. Maybe it is just because when you meet people who are just genuinely kind and thoughtful, you instantly are at ease and in love with how amazing the rest of little Lux’s life will be. Happy Birthday Lux…you are one very very loved little girl<3
