I first met with the Pumo family a few years ago when I shot a portrait session with them on their annual vacation in Maine from their home in Miami, Florida! We’ve maintained contact over the years and I was so thrilled when Lissette reached out for this year’s vacation to shoot some maternity portraits with their growing family! Despite a drizzly day, we had a great time playing by the rocky coastline and then moving to a nearby woodsy pond! Without further ado…the Pumo family!

I spent a gorgeous Saturday morning with the Manganello family a couple of weeks ago! We played by the water and took some photos and I just can’t get enough of these guys! I always really appreciate it when families approach a session with the expectation that their kiddos will just be themselves and can laugh and run around and engage with one another in a real and authentic way! Shocker, I know, but it turns out that yelling at your kids to smile doesn’t actually work very well! These guys had no such issue…there were adventures on the dock, climbing on the playground, and a bit of tossing in the air to keep things lively and the smiles came of their own accord!

Thank you so much, Manganellos!!! You guys are AWESOME!!!!

I can hardly believe that Elizabeth and Mike’s wedding was TWO years ago! I’d just arrived home from Haiti the evening before and they kicked my 2012 wedding season off with a PERFECT start…amazing friends and family plus a riotous good time! One of my very favorite things about wedding photography is how I get to be around for the official beginning of a family and that often I get to see bits and pieces of that family’s growth! It’s amazing to shoot engagement images when the talk is wedding, wedding, wedding and then see all that wedding talk come to life on the big day and THEN see that wedding settle into a marriage and then sometimes even get to see the family grow! It’s an evolution that never grows old  for me! So of course I was beyond thrilled to meet up not only with Elizabeth and Mike, but also the rest of Elizabeth’s family for a super fun family session on the beach in Wells! Their beautiful little girl is just months old and was totally perplexed by the entire endeavor…she just looked so thoughtful the entire shoot!

And Mike & Elizabeth’s little one wasn’t the only addition to the extended family since the wedding! Both her brother AND her sister also expanded their families!
