Winter Family Portraits with the "R" Family in Standish, Maine

Winter Family Portraits with the "R" Family in Standish, Maine

Did you know that it's the holidays? Christmas is in four days! But when you buy a new home and move in when it's cold, snowy and icy out... time slips by pretty rapidly! So, when my friend Michelle contacted me recently for their family portraits, we made it happen and set up a mini session at their new home in Standish, Maine, this afternoon. Between their two rambunctious four legged children and a very enthusiastic four year old (she get it from her mama!)...

Nicole & Derek's Apple Orchard Wedding & Spire 29 Reception in Gorham, Maine

Nicole & Derek's Apple Orchard Wedding & Spire 29 Reception in Gorham, Maine

Nicole & Derek's wedding this past weekend was honestly one that I have been looking forward to for a VERY long time. When Nicole first contacted me, she laid out her vision for their day with their ceremony in Randall's Orchard, an apple orchard nearby, and then their reception at the historic Spire 29 on the Square in Gorham. She had me at fall wedding in an orchard. Could you think of a better time of year?!? Apples still glistening on the branches, the sun reaching the dreamy point in the sky this time of year, and then partying at a renovated church turned event venue? *sigh* My fingers were crossed that I would be lucky enough to tell their story and was jumping for joy when they told me I was their pick.

Bree :: Senior Photos on Sebago Lake in Standish, Maine

As always, I should preface this post right off the bat by saying that I don’t normally do senior photos because I am a yearbook adviser in my day job and I typically avoid the “conflict of interest” that could arise. However, when the daughter of a good friend becomes a senior, there was no way that I could say no to her (or her dad).

I have been watching Bree grow up so much since I first met her over six years ago. Her father and I, beyond being coworkers, are good friends and I have always felt close to him and his family. It was, therefore, only natural that I captured this special time in Bree's life as she is months away from graduating and moving out in to the world on her own. I know that I am not the only one who is struggling with this concept (especially as I watch my own Bri growing bigger and older by the day). I met up with Bree and her parents (and super awesome dog Skye) at their gorgeous home on Sebago Lake on a cloud covered day. Just a tip, cloudy days are awesome for photographs! I had a blast hanging out with Bree and chatting with her about what's to come for her in the future. Congratulations, Bree (and family)! Thanks for hanging out with me and letting me capture these shots for you.

All of Bree's photos are posted in her gallery, but you’ll need the password from her in order to see them and order printed goodies. In the meantime, here is a sneak peek from her senior portrait session. To see more, be sure to head over to my Facebook page and hit the “Like” button!
