Abraham {fresh 48}

Gah!  I am in LOVE with this {fresh 48} session! 

As much as I would love to photograph birth stories, the timing is too unpredictable.  I am the primary parent to my kiddos and they are too young for me to leave them in the middle of the night and be gone for 1-2 days :( 

However, I am excited that I am now offering {fresh 48} sessions!!  With these sessions, I come to the hospital or your home within the first 48 hours of birth and capture those unforgettable moments.

Abraham was just 11 hours old when I photographed him and his awesome family at the hospital.  How sweet are these images?!  Here are a few of my favorites...

Anna is ONE

With my {first birthday} package, we often have the family set outside and everything else (more birthday baby portraits and the cake smash) are in the studio.  Occasionally, I will have a client request to have the entire session outside. So.Much.Fun!  Here is a little peek into Anna's {first birthday} session at the Viles Arboretum in Augusta.  Smash cake by The Bankery in Skowhegan.

Fall Family Session

Now that the holidays are over, I can share some of the awesome sessions from this fall! The Conner family was a blast to photograph!  Early last summer, I met with Jackie and  youngest daughter, Ashley about photographing Ashley's senior portraits.  We had so much fun at the flower field, waterfall, dirt road and then soccer field capturing Ashley's HS portraits!   In early October I meet up with the entire Conner family for a shoot at their family camp.  Here are a few of my favorite images from the session.  Don't you just love the colors.   Good job cordinating outfits Conner family!  

Mini Sessions for the first half of 2018 have been posted!

Brrr it is cold!  We woke up to frozen pipes this morning, ugh!  Luckily it was a quick and easy fix.  I do like winter, just not -26 degrees. My kids love to be outside, but have been stuck inside most of the Christmas break as I try to get some work done and they are practically climbing the walls.  Guess we will have to wait awhile to use those new ice skates they got for Christmas.  I am thinking warm thoughts and dreaming of my mini sessions at the beach.  It was fun to go through the images from years past to post in the galleries.  Check out my mini session page for all the dates and themes!  Book now as most sessions only have a few spots!  

Merry Christmas 2017

I would like to wish all of my family, friends, clients old and new, a VERY Merry Christmas!  The past few months, I rarely posted images on social media as most sessions are for cards and gifts and I don't want to ruin any surprises.  Now that most gifts have opened and cards have been sent (Ha, except for mine which are printed, stamped and sitting in my dining room).  I cannot wait to share just a few of my favorite images from my Christmas {mini sessions}.  

To start, my four little loves and 2 out of 3 of our fur babies!  I only do Christmas pictures of my crew every other year and we always do matching pjs!

Elizabeth + Blin {Wedding Day}

With most weddings, we book a year out, so between the engagement session, planning meetings, emails, phone calls, ect... I get to know my clients and their families.  It is just so awesome to see all the planning come together and I can't help but get a little teary during their vows.  These two almost had me full on crying!  There were tissues everywhere!  Their ceremony was full of laughter and happy tears.  Their wedding day was full of sentimental details and a love of color and VW beetles!  Here is just a glimpse of Elizabeth and Blin's {Wedding Day}
