My favorite season is settling in on us here in Maine, so I figured I’d start sharing some of my favorite fall sessions from last year (since you already all know I am clearly over a year behind on the blogging scene!). I only have a few openings left for this autumn, so hurry up and contact me if you want to grab one while they’re still available! Personally, I think it’s the best time of year for photos… cool temperatures, lots of colors with the foliage, layered outfits, apple picking, corn-mazing, blanket snuggling, etc.!

Okay, now for the fun stuff: the photos. :)

Disclaimer: there was no fun and no laughing allowed at this session. At all.

Completely adore this momma/son duo. Gage is genuinely one of the sweetest (and most hilarious!) kids you’ll ever meet. I cannot wait to see you both again soon!

With another blizzard welcoming it’s way into Maine this evening, I thought I would share a session that literally took place in the middle of a blizzard right before the holidays! When Anne asked me to do her family photos at a christmas tree farm, I was instantly excited. Adorable family, christmas trees, snow… perfection! At the same time, I was instantly nervous. Photographing another photographer (yes, I’m talking about the Anne behind Anne Schmidt Photography – fabulous work, check her out!) is always a bit daunting, especially when it’s blowing around snow and the wind chill is below zero. Add in an almost 3 year old, and you’ve got a lot of challenges rolled into one! But when all was said and done, their session turned out to be one of my favorites of 2013. We had a great time with loads of laughs, even more warm car breaks, and plenty of donuts for the little one. :) Here are some of my favorite images!

Thank you, Anne and Josh, for having me capture your darling little family last year, and for being such troopers in the wintery conditions! I hope you all stay warm (and inside) during this blizzard! ;)

 

summer, sunsets & family.

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

Taking you all back to warmth, sunshine, and longer days with this blog post! Every summer, I go visit both sides of my family in upstate New York, and every summer I get the honor to photograph a bunch of my favorite kiddos. My extended family shares a cottage right on Lake Ontario — it has always been (and always will be) my favorite place. So many cousins, aunts, and uncles, too much swimming, lots of craziness, lots of relaxing, and plenty of card games. One of my favorite things about this place? The sunsets. I’m pretty sure part of my interest for photography was sparked by these sunsets. My aunt takes beautiful photos and when we were growing up she always took THE best silhouette photos of us kids. And still, when the sun starts to set, much of my family trickles out to photograph and observe the colorful sky. I feel like it’s kind of a tradition. I love traditions.

Anyway, photographing these sweet kiddos is usually a fairly crazy, whirlwind event… we are all in vacation mode, everyone is tuckered out from playing/swimming all day, AND to top it all off, I make them wait until the “golden hour” to do the photos (aka right before bedtime) because the light is amazing. Sounds evil I know. ;) But regardless of all those factors and possible recipes for disaster, these photos ALWAYS turn out to be some of my favorite photos of the year. And these kids are always so well behaved. Love my family. And yes, I love summer. Is it July yet?

First up, Kayla and Kaden! I’m calling it now, Kayla is going to be a future photographer. She LOVES cameras. It takes a lot of work to get some real smiles out of this sweet pea, but this year we had a special deal… if she gave me real smiles, she could use my back up camera to photograph her little brother! It worked out well. Can’t wait until I can actually hire her to be my assistant someday. :) Here are some of my personal favorites from our mini-session!

Next up: Morgan and Brady Caitlin. These girls make my “job” so easy! Morgan is such a sweet, loving little lady, and she’s a great big sister to her slightly more wild little sister. For real, Brady Cait is a little spit-fire. My favorite. :) Together, they make the cutest set of sisters ever.

Last up: Kaleb and Drew. Probably my two toughest subjects to photograph (even with an ice cream bribe). Don’t get me wrong, I get it… obviously throwing rocks in a dried up creek is wayyy cooler than listening to me make super corny jokes, right? Boys will be boys. :) But they are seriously some of the sweetest boys I know.

PHEW, aaaaand that’s a wrap! Hope you enjoyed the little peek into my family and what goes down on my summer vacation :) Super anxious for July now! Thanks to all of my awesome cousins for having me capture some summer moments of your sweet little loves.
