Piper :: 2 Week Old Newborn Portraits

Amanda & Justin have become one of the most "famous" couples I have. First, they were married at the Mountain View Grand in 2010 under a sprinkle of rain that brought them a triple rainbow. Then we got together for their fall foliage trash the dress session that resulted in their dachshund, Peanut, being featured as Real Maine Wedding's Pup of the Week portrait. And a few weeks ago we wandered around the Old Port to capture their maternity portraits as they anxiously awaited the arrival of their baby girl, Piper. Needless to say, it has been so amazing and such an honor to be a part of their life together from the very beginning.

And it became even more special to me this past weekend as I met up with Amanda & Justin (and Peanut & Hemi) to welcome adorable little Piper in to the world (and get her in front of the camera for the first time). With two good looking, smart parents behind her, it is no wonder that Piper is already so smart and absolutely perfect. From her long, tiny toes to her delicate fingers reaching out to the world around her. From her whispy hair to her stunning blue eyes starring out the windows. Snuggling her made my baby rabies act up (but a bout with my own teething 9 month old put that in check).

Here is a sneak peek of what we captured during the new family's session. I cannot wait to watch this little lady grow up! Congratulations, Amanda & Justin (and Peanut & Hemi)!

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!
