The H Family | Maine Family Photographer

One of the things I enjoy the most about shooting on Mount Desert Island is the variety of locations it offers. I’ve done sessions on the beach, in town, along the coast, and in gorgeous gardens. When I drove up a few weeks ago for sessions, I had another chance at more variety on the island, starting with the extended “H” family. I met this crew at their vacation rental, and while it was smack in the middle of downtown Bar Harbor, you’d never know it, with it’s big sprawling backyard and gorgeous garden with blooming peonies (drool!). To make it even better, the house was walking distance from the shore path, so after taking some photos at the house, we headed down to the shore for a few more on the rocks. This family is so nice, and so sweet, with awesome personalities, goofy energy, and just an overall incredibly kind spirit. If you have to drive three hours for a session, you want it to be with a family like this, who made the drive so worth it. Here are my favorites from our late afternoon session in Bar Harbor.
