I consider Kristin one of my best friends. And not only that, but she’s my best photographer friend. You’ve probably seen me work with her or talk about her on my business page (her business is Sweet Life Memories Photography). She has helped me so much in getting where I am today, with her support, honest opinions, and really awesome advice. I am so thankful to have such a close friend that I can talk shop with — or photoshop? same thing.

Over the past couple years, I have also gotten to know her sweet family — adore them. With 8 year old twins and a 3 year old running around, I am still not yet sure how it’s possible to be a full time mom and full time business owner. But somehow she rocks it. The major downfall to being so busy? Any photographer with kids probably knows the answer to this question: not having enough photos of your kiddos, and especially not enough with YOU and your kiddos. So obviously we had to change that.

Kristin and I discussed what we should do for this event — after a busy summer, we were both exhausted by our local location options, so we thought it would be a fabulous idea to go down state to Old Orchard Beach and hit up not only the beach, but the carnival. Sounds like a super fun idea right?! Yeahhhh, it was. In fact, it was TOO much fun! Naturally, the kids wanted nothing to do with photos after seeing a bunch of games and rides and cotton candy around. Bad planning on our part ;) We both agree that the whole session felt like a chaotic hot mess, and I swear everything that could go wrong, went wrong. For example: major traffic jam on the way down, never knowing when the rides were going to shut down due to no official carnival closing time… yeah, whaaaa?, hungry kids = scored free donuts = eaten by seagulls (legit) = still hungry kids, the ferris wheel man wouldn’t let them all ride together even with my begging/puppy dog eyes, etc. But, in the end, after all the craziness, I am so excited with the shots we got! These capture their family just being them, which is of course, the ultimate goal. :)

Here are some of my favs!

Sorry for the 234897 photos :) But I can’t help it. Aren’t they such a beautiful family? LOVE LOVE LOVE. Kristin, thank you for your friendship and for everything else. I hope you love and cherish these pictures of your precious kiddos (plus the ones with Corey too I guess… haha, kidding Corey), and hang them up all over the walls of your pretty new house! Love you!

This session is a favorite. And so is this family. SO MUCH LOVE HERE. They are some of the most genuinely sweet and happy people you will ever meet. Big brother was hilarious and as you can see, beyond adorable. He totally rocked all his poses (yes, his poses… he had a bunch of his own ideas) and did not want the session to end! Talk about making me feel awesome. The twins were just precious. I mean, what babies hold hands at 7 months old, unprompted?!! And moms were so laid back and up for anything — including laying on the ground just so we could capture the yummy sunlight! I am so lucky to have such amazing clients. Enjoy a few of my favorites from their session :)


And yes, if you must know, the above screaming/crying picture is officially in my all-time, top 10 favorites ;) Thanks again so much Mindy + Charissa for picking me to capture these moments for your family! I hope we can work together again in the future!

This was the second year in a row that I had the pleasure of photographing this adorable family. I LOVE return clients… it sort of feels like I am a small part of the family already, and it doesn’t take the kids quiteee as long to warm up to the idea of me having a camera in their face. This time around, the little mister was ONTHEMOVE, and the little misses thought pouting was wayyy cooler than smiling. I think I won in the end though ;)

Things I particularly adore about this session: 1. the lifestyle/free/fun feel to it, 2. their outfits — perfect, right? so simple and well-coordinated, and 3. that mom and I are totally on the same page about how fabulous non-traditional locations are. Most people think I am crazy when I suggest something like abandoned buildings or overgrown fields… but she is the one who suggested this type of location! So yeah, basically, this family rocks. Here are a few of my favorite shots from their session!

Can’t even wait for our next session together, you four! Enjoy your photos. :)
