The M Family | York Maine Family Photographer

Excited about today’s blog post is definitely an understatement. Because when it comes to extended family sessions, this one has set the gold standard. Yes, we had gorgeous light and a perfect beach night, but this family is one of those groups that had me leaving the session with a huge smile on my face, energy in my bones, and a contentment about what I have chosen to do for a living. Paul and Vicki, along with their children and grandchildren, visited York a few weeks ago from various spots around the country. The session was a surprise for Vicki, a gift to celebrate her birthday, and the joy on her face throughout our entire session was just priceless. This session at York Harbor Beach was full of love, goofy moments, serious moments, and all the beautiful candid moments, in between those important group photos that can only take place when a family from all over comes together in one place. This family is so sweet and fun, and I am so happy about the moments we were able to capture. Here are my many many favorites from our evening together.
