Eastern Prom Family Session in Portland, Maine | Jess & Ben!

I always love getting to see wedding clients of mine again, especially when the occasion is photographing their new family! I photographed Jess & Ben’s Portland wedding back in 2012. They have always been the type of clients that make me think “damn, I’m so lucky that I get to photograph these cool, laid-back people as my JOB”. So when they got in touch with me to spend the afternoon with them and their daughter, Penny, I was so thrilled!

We met up at their apartment on the Eastern Prom in Portland, Maine. I always love getting to see where my clients live and spend their time (and I used to live on the Eastern Prom when my family first moved to Portland so it has an extra special quality to me!). It was awesome to spend a little bit of time meeting their cats and seeing them snuggle and feed Penny before we ventured out to the Prom for some photos with the foliage. It was a chilly day and Penny got a little bit cranky but we made the best of it! 🙂

Fall Family Session in Portland, Maine | Sue & James!

I loved meeting Susan & James for their family session with their son, Jackson! We met up by East End Beach in Portland, Maine, and we managed to get some photos with the most perfect fall foliage!

The day we took their family photos was super chilly so the mini session they had booked me for ended up being the perfect length. I offer both regular sessions and mini sessions, with the minis being just 30 minutes long. They can be a great option for simpler portrait sessions (like couples or head shots), but they are also beneficial during times of the year when the weather may be on the colder side and you don’t want to spend much time outside! We got lucky that Jackson was a pretty happy baby for the session. As long as he was being snuggled he was good to go, which made for some really cute family photos (his adorable hat with the ears helped, too!). 🙂
