Lexi and Chris’s Winter Engagement Portraits by Sebago Lake in Standish, Maine

Lexi and Chris’s Winter Engagement Portraits by Sebago Lake in Standish, Maine

You might not be thrilled that I’m showing you photos that involve snow. In fact, I was hiking Tumbledown Mountain last week and saw a few large swaths still up in those hills. My mind instantly went to Lexi and Chris’s engagement session from this past winter around Sebago Lake here in Standish. We were very lucky to have a relatively mild day when we got together and were able to poke around without being bundled up too much.

"Doe, a deer, a buck." (Week 5/52)

Sometimes I wish that we lived closer to the "big city" so I wouldn't have to drive so far to get everywhere. And then days like yesterday happen. I was out wandering around our corner of the universe for over an hour patiently waiting for one of the deer herds to come out at dusk like they have been lately. Once they did, I lost count of them once I made it to twenty including at least two bucks. They never did migrate to the field that I was hoping to catch them in and thus the majority of my photos have the fence from the farm between me and them. But you can bet I'm hoping to be back there again tonight.

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.
