The F Family {Crescent Beach} | Cape Elizabeth Maine Family Photographer

A few years ago, I received an email from Shannon, who had just moved to Maine with her family – husband AJ, and boys Liam and Lochlan. She told me she absolutely loves photos (instant friends, obviously), and was looking for a regular family photographer here in Maine. I was so excited when she chose me, but even more excited when she came back last year for another session because it meant I had met if not exceeded her expectations (always the goal!). That makes this year number three, and after a few years under my belt with this crew, I was excited for what was bound to be another busy, silly, and super fun evening together. Liam and Lochlan are busy little guys, with lots of energy and silly personalities. And while this may seem stressful for someone on the outside looking in at our photo session, to me, these kids are pure photo session gold. ???? I am all about capturing real personalities, and I don’t think these two could hide it if they wanted to! I love that Shannon and AJ allow me to embrace the chaos and capture they boys and their family as they are in the moment each year. This year we headed to Crescent Beach, on a night that felt like summer but was beginning to look like fall as little pops of orange showed up in the background. The haze from the western fires gave us a golden sunset, making for warm photos around all parts of the park. I am so excited to share this third year with this awesome family and am so grateful that they continue to choose me to capture them and the beautiful life they are creating here in Maine.
