I’ll play a little catch up here and share some fall images that I never had time to post. Hard to remember this cool, rainy November day when we’re in the midst of a February springlike surprise.
I’ve photographed this little/big guy every year for the past few years – always with his lovely mama & papa and usually on the Capitol grounds or surrounding area. This year some of their cousins joined the fun too and we met at The Yards Park down along the Anacostia River near the ballpark – what a spot!
Since it was intermittently drizzling we had the place to ourselves which was amazing. We had a great time playing and exploring the park until everyone got too cold and retreated for a warming lunch.
What a treat for me to photograph a family I so enjoy being with and add even more of their wonderful family to the mix!
This is my third summer photographing in Maine. I lived here twenty years ago, met my husband here, got married here and have returned once or twice every year for the past eighteen years. The landscape here, whether summer or winter, brings tears to my eyes and I am not kidding.
Besides the idyllic location and amazing light, one of the many wonderful aspects of doing my work here is connecting with DC families. This portrait session was in honor of an 80th birthday held at the family’s beach cottage. I think I wore everyone out trying three or four spots for the entire family, but my favorite was right here in front of the cottage.
After that we gave the grandparents a break and took the cousins down to the beach. It had been very bright, then as the sun set it became simply magical. These images capture the essence of what I love about photographing in Maine. Beautiful children on the beach quietly exploring a tide pool in the end of day glow. Sublime.
