Maine Newborn Documentary/Lifestyle Photographer | In Home with the Readers

Last fall I met the Reader's when they attended my fall mini sessions. I always feel lucky when people choose me to capture their families and lives so I was really thrilled when Nichole reached out to book a newborn session for Henry. This is definitely one of my favorite sessions. I love documentary photography and waiting for beautiful moments to happen. Nothing feels better than getting to capture a moment that happens spontaneously and I feel even luckier when my clients get that and love it as much as I do. 

I'm so excited to share these pictures, I would apologize that it's so picture heavy but I'm not actually sorry! I love the story they tell and I can't do it justice without including an obscene amount. Haha!

Portland Newborn In Home Session | Maine Photographer

A couple weeks ago, I met up with this sweet little family for a newborn session. Eli decided to come a little early but is thriving and everyone is settling in well. They opted to do their session in the comfort of their own home; which I just love. When we have pictures taken in our homes, it just adds another layer of authenticity and gives more depth to the stories our photographs tell.

I'm finishing up their gallery tonight and am excited to share some of my favorites with you all.

Anderson Newborn Session | Portland, Maine Lifestyle Photographer

maine in home newborn lifestyle photographer

In home sessions are quickly becoming my favorite types of sessions. It's kind of a vulnerable thing, letting a stranger into your home and into your life to capture it. But that's what makes them so amazing! Our homes are literally where our hearts are, so I find the images that I capture here are just elevated by that fact. Children are more comfortable in their own homes and I love getting to photograph them really in their element. 

I am so, so excited to share some of my favorites from the Anderson's newborn session with you all today. I find that my in home & newborn sessions tend to yield a lot of images so this is a big share (you've been warned). The Anderson's welcomed their new son a week before our session and he weighed over 10lbs when he was born! My Lillian weighed in at 9lb 14oz and they were similar in their temperament as well. Calm, snuggly, sleepy. Maybe it's a big baby thing. Big sister Nora was absolutely adorable. She is such a good big sister and was so proud of "her baby". She brought her camera along too and we both took pictures of him together. 

I hope you all enjoy the images as much as I do, leave some love & feel free to share.

In Home Lifestyle Newborn Session Sneak Peek | Portland, ME Photographer

One of my sessions last week was with the Anderson family. They scheduled an in-home newborn session and it was just wonderful. Little Oliver was so cuddly and sleepy and big sister Nora was an absolute riot and such a caring soul. Here's a little sneak peek from their session - keep your eyes out for their full blog post later on.

Abby's Mommy & Me In Home Session | For Fun

Oh, I'm so excited to share this special little blog with you all today. This week I have been very busy with sessions and editing. But on Friday, between the 2 sessions I had scheduled that day, my youngest daughter came up to me and had a photo request. She would like to do a "Mommy and Me" session with her baby doll and she was hoping I could find time to do it. Of course, without hesitation I put down my laptop, grabbed my computer and off to my bedroom we went. She was absolutely thrilled that I was going to do this special session for her. She loves to play with my tripods and pretend that they are cameras. She will spend hours lining up her stuffies and dolls and playing photo session with them. I just love the way her mind works. It was so cute to watch her take care of her baby - she wanted REAL LIFE stuff she said. Seriously, I love her. I may be biased (yeh, I definitely am) but she's adorable and I thought these photos were so cute and funny I just had to share them.

Baby Emmett Sneak Peek | Maine Newborn Photographer

maine unique lifestyle photographer adventure

Hey guys!

I hope your summers are going well. Now that we're in July it feels like it's just FLYING by. I'm desparately trying to keep up with my summer bucket list. Hopefully we'll get to it all but honestly, we never do. It's been a really great summer so far though. We've had a lot of beach days, photo sessions, and we've gotten in a camping trip. It was a bit of a disaster but that's for another post, haha. 

You may remember seeing Kristen's maternity session on the blog a few months ago. Didn't catch it? No worries, you can check it out here. Anyway, baby Emmett made his entrance so I went over and did some newborn pictures. He is just the sweetest baby, but then again, aren't they all? Here's a little sneak peek for you guys!

In Home Maternity Session | Maine Photographer

Hey guys,

How was everyone's April vacation? My family and I decided to take a last minute trip to the Berkshires in Western Massachusetts. It was so nice to just get away for even a couple days. You don't always need to go far to relax. Once (if I ever) finish editing the pictures, I'll do a blog post sharing about our mini adventures. 


I've had a lot of maternity sessions lately and it's amazing how different they all are. Just like with any other session, no two are alike. Recently, I did an in home maternity session with a really awesome family. They were so much fun and were totally ready to laugh, joke around, and have a fun time. I just loved it! Baby Myles is going to be a lucky little guy. Both kids are ready to be a big brother & big sister, and I'm sure they're going to teach  him all their fun games. 


Oh and just a reminder that Mommy & Me mini sessions are coming up in about a week and a half. Did you see the blog post I wrote about them? If you missed it, you can see it here. There are still a couple spots available. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
