Willard Beach Family Session in South Portland, Maine | Annie & Frank!

I loved photographing Annie & Frank and their four beautiful children at Willard Beach in South Portland! It was a perfect family session in the sense that we spent very little time posing anyone and instead opted to let the kids play and be themselves. With a large family, especially with several small children, it’s tough to ask for more than a small handful of posed shots — but they were SO happy and lively and loving exploring the beach and surrounding areas, so we got some really beautiful photos. ­čÖé Annie and Frank were happy to explore as well, and some of my favorite captures were completely candid!

Portland Company Complex Family Session | Heidi & Dane!

I loved this Portland Company Complex family session with Heidi, her boyfriend Dane, and her 7-year-old son, Jaxon! The area around the Portland Company Complex is one of my favorites in Portland because it just has an awesome mix of settings in such a small space. I am a sucker for any┬ámore urban, industrial settings — gimme that brick, those metal garage doors, that peeling paint, those hints of graffiti! But you’re also just a stone’s throw from a gorgeous ocean view as well as part of the Eastern Promenade┬áTrail, which has lots of nature and trees, too.

We took these photos on a chilly day, but Jaxon kept us all laughing hard enough to keep warm. ­čśë He was so NOT your typical 7-year-old in front of the camera. He loved making funny faces and goofing around, doing some parkour on the structures, climbing trees, and just being his charming self! We also got the most perfect, golden light — what more can you ask for?
