‘Tis the season for giving and we have some fun ideas for someone special. One of the most thoughtful gifts we can recommend to you is a family portrait session. Have you ever had the best family vacation of your lives and found yourself wishing you had photos to look back on? Or, how many times is mom or dad behind the lens but not in any of the photos? We have met so many families that return to Maine every year and we just love the opportunity to capture those memories for them to remember. Email us to purchase your gift certificate and when your trip gets closer we can set a date for your portrait session. Sessions include an online gallery so the whole family can view the photos no matter where they are!
Meet Sara, Miles and their adorable boys! We spent a little time together on Parson’s Beach in Kennebunk this Spring taking a few casual family portraits. I have had the pleasure of working with Sara on many photography projects but being able to photograph her family was by far my favorite! She is the artists behind Sara Fitz, a watercolor stationery studio based in York, Maine. Her work is classically New England in style and is highly coveted in the wedding world for her amazing invitation sets. She recently relaunched the company with her husband after a short break to spend time raising her boys and I was able to photograph all of her new designs, her gorgeous studio and her family for the website relaunch! (more on all of that in another blog post) Today I wanted to share their family beach session. It’s so important to keep sessions easy for the kids making time to play, explore, and just be themselves! It’s at the heart of what we love about beach portraits!
The days are getting longer and the temperatures are rising and we are getting excited to see all our family portrait clients again! It’s that time of the year for booking your beach session and as we catch up with our clients and schedule their portraits for this Summer we can’t help but think about our sessions from the years past. I can’t wait to see how much these cuties have grown!
It seems like Spring has come early here in New England, honestly if we can’t have snow I would rather it be warm and sunny! We’ve already logged several beach walks and it’s only March! We can’t wait for all that Summer in New England brings including family beach portraits! I can’t think of a better way to honor your family time together. This sweet family was visiting from California for an East Coast wedding and took some time to relax in Kennebunkport and celebrate their little guy’s first birthday. We met at Parson’s Beach (a favorite spot year round) for a quick session. How cute is he?!?! When planning for your Summer get togethers a family portrait session should always be on the list!
Here’s to soaking up the last few days of summer!
Officially Summer has ended… BUT! this doesn’t mean that time has run out for family beach portraits! We enjoyed a crisp early evening on the beach with this adorable family just this week. The dunes are beautiful and honestly… some of the best light of the season! This little guy couldn’t help but smile. Can you deal with his adorable little sweater!
