I met up recently with Chantelle and Shay for their engagement session in Portland! I was so excited when they decided to bring their dog, Rocco, along for the session and I had all I could do to not spend the entirety of our time together snuggling this sweet boy! We wandered the Old Port before heading over to Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth and it was just so much fun to get to know this little family a little bit along the way! Without further ado…Chantelle & Shay (and Rocco, of course!)!

Thanks so much, you guys!! I can’t wait for August!!

I have the best clients. Like EVER. Clients who are game for anything, totally open and understanding, and, you know, FUN! I feel like I’m always pretty aware of this fact, but sometimes there are clients who really drive home how very lucky I am! Danielle and Raju totally fall into this category!

To begin with, they call the sunshine-filled state of Florida home, but took their one week of spring break (Danielle is a teacher!) and left their beautiful weather behind to come up to Maine in the unpredictable month of March to do their engagement session! And true to the real madness that is March weather here, they were met with freezing rain and no sign of life yet emerging from our frozen ground. On top of their humor and awesomeness with the weather, they were totally flexible with me as I was knocked flat by a nasty flu the day before we were scheduled to shoot (I seriously get sick like that approximately once every 10-15 years…the last time was sometime around 2002!) and they rearranged their schedule to give me a few days to recover before we met up. Did I mention that they are awesome? Just checking.

We met at Fort Williams Park for their session during a break in the freezing rain and despite the raw weather, these two were all laughter and love and utter coolness! High-school sweethearts who have supported each other through years of education and job searching and life’s transitions, they absolutely radiate teamwork. And humor…they laugh SO much, which is just my favorite thing EVER, and we totally ended up having a ball!

Without further ado, some of my favorites from Danielle and Raju’s Portland Head Light engagement session!

Thank you both SO much!! I can’t wait for July!

 

 

Sam and Jason. Jason and Sam. He’s a Mainer whose roots in this state go deep. She’s a California girl with a heart for the west coast. But their love transcends geography and boy-oh-boy, is there some love here. And laughter. Even in just the few hours we spent together, their support for one another and their sense of “team” was absolutely transparent. We played around at Camden Hills State Park before finishing things off at the world’s sweetest little lake, surrounded by the colorful leaves of a Maine autumn and these are just a few of my favorites from our session!

Thank you both so much!!! Can’t wait for your wedding this spring!

Oh my goodness, this family. Where do I even begin? There is so much love happening here, I can’t even tell you. From Laura and Heath, who are so clearly and utterly smitten with one another, to their wide-eyed little girl, to their sweet, sweet dog…I just can’t get enough. Here are just a tiny few of my many many favorites from this incredible engagement-slash-family session we did in Kittery!

 

We began things with the whole family in a cornfield…

Hanh and Nived are getting married TOMORROW! So this seemed like the perfect the to share their Portland engagement session with you! These two are unflappable! When our sunset session got rained out, they were totally game to rise and shine in the wee hours to shoot at sunrise the next morning! We wandered Fort Williams park, the Portland Headlight, and the Old Port as the sun inched into the sky and we were rewarded for our efforts with a perfect morning!
