baby boy

Welcome to the world, baby James!

I'll come right out and say it. I love my clients. I love being a part of their lives and seeing them as they reach new milestones. I love to tell their stories.

And this past week was the start of one of my favorite chapters. I have known April & Dan for quite some time now. I captured their engagement portraits, then their wedding in 2014, followed by their maternity portraits last winter. This week, I photographed them together with their sweet baby boy. April & Dan are now parents! Seeing them over the past few years and watching them come to this point in time has been such a blessing. Being with them on Tuesday while I met baby James... this, my friends, is what they are meant to be. They are meant to be parents. And meant to be parents for sweet little James. You can just tell that they have been waiting their whole lives for this chapter. They are so patient, loving, kind, and communicative with each other. And oh my how they dote on little James.

I don't blame them! He is so perfectly adorable in every way. He has his mommy's eyes. The way he looks at his daddy is enough to make anyone melt. James even has the most incredible little dimples. I really could cuddle him all day long. Even when he cries.

April & Dan, I cannot even begin to tell you how much it means to me to capture your life story. Thank you so much for letting me cuddle your baby boy. He is one lucky little man to have the two of you to call his mum & dad. <3

Samuel :: 5 Day Old Newborn Portraits

In my last blog post, I shared Jess' maternity and family portraits as they awaited the arrival of the newest member of their family. Well, a couple weeks passed and they welcomed adorable Samuel, just in time for Christmas. I first snuggled lil' Sam, and got to congratulate his super lucky parents and proud big sister, at their home in Cape Elizabeth on a gloriously sunny day in December. Let me just say that Sam is already a heart breaker. I turned to a puddle as soon as I saw him. His adorable little wrinkly face and long, skinny fingers just reach out to be held. Love!

Here is a sneak peek of what I capture from Sam's Christmas themed newborn session. I can't wait to watch him grow and watch his adorable sister assume the older sibling roll in their new relationship. Congratulations, once again, to Jess and her whole family!
