Having a baby in the middle of the summer (photography season in Maine) isn’t quite ideal for my business. But life happens, and I’ve worked really hard this spring and early summer to fit all my sessions in before mid August when baby Alice is due to arrive. A couple weekends ago, I threw together a day of back to back to back sessions at the City Forest. This is one of my favorite places to take my kids and the dog especially in the fall when the bugs aren’t horrific!!
We started the weekend with my favorite girls Olivia + Sophia. They brought their parents along too for the buggy adventure. It’s taken Olivia a couple years to warm up to me, but after all this time (4 years) we are super BFFs. Sophia is still only 2, so she pretty much thinks I’m super crazy and wants nothing to do with me. Can’t say I blame her.
The next day started with my favorite accountant, Rachel Grass of Absolute Accounting and her gorgeous group of boys. Last November Rachel and Doug gave birth to their FOURTH boy!! Boy oh boy, I’ve NEVER met 4 more perfect boys – handsome, sweet, well behaved, polite, and super sweet to each other. I enjoy photographing this family, they are pure joy to be around.
Next up, new clients for EMP, but old friends – the Flagg family. Scott and Sarah have 4 beautiful children that are hysterically entertaining. We had a lot of fun making naughty noises and shouting out inappropriate names. I enjoy being around this family, they are so laid back, that they always look like they’re having a great time, and Sarah has a way of making it look like she always has it together!!
Later in the evening I met up with another new client, the Briggs family. Change of pace from the morning, with only one child, but her personality made up for it. She was so smart, sweet and funny I could’ve photographed her all day long. Her face is perfection, don’t you agree!!??
My next two sessions were both maternity session. Myself, Erin + Sara are all due in mid to late August and all three of us are having girls. Both families are past wedding clients too. I’m always delighted to continue working with couples and watching their families grow. It’s such a pleasure and makes me feel so fortunate that I have the job that I have.
Erin and Bart brought along their gorgeous chocolate labs, Jake and Oscar for the shoot. Sara + Chad brought along their ridiculousness and some 6 inch heels. See for yourself!
