Dobbins Family | Buxton Maine Family Photographer

Tonight I'm doing a flashback feature with one of my sessions from last fall that I never got around to blogging. (I swear I'll catch up... hopefully). The Dobbins family and I met up at the Little River Flower Farm in Buxton to do their session. It's definitely one of my favorite spots and I can't wait until summer comes so we can go and do pick-your-own blueberries there. 

Here are some of my favorites from the day:

This morning I wanted to take a minute to share another session from my Mother's Day "Mommy & Me" mini sessions. We did the session in the morning at the Little River Flower Farm in Buxton, Maine. It's a beautiful farm that offers pick-your-own flowers and has a beautiful wedding site on location. They also do pick-your-own blueberries. And they should be ready right around July 4th! I can't wait to take the girls down there to pick our own everything!

Dondero Mini Session | Maine Family Photographer

Hi everyone!

My Mommy & Me mini session date ended up getting rained out so I've been pretty busy rescheduling everyone and doing the make up sessions. It's been so much fun though. I've gotten to meet so many wonderful women and their children and I have been overwhelmed by the response to these minis. I love that so many women have decided to make getting in the frame a priority and I'm so happy that I'm able to give them and their children these memories. For these minis I'm going to do a sort of mini series of blog posts. 

First up are the Dondero's.  I first met Jen and her kids last fall when they booked my fall mini sessions. I was so excited when she was one of the first people to sign up for this round of minis. We met at the Little River Flower Farm in Buxton, Maine first thing in the morning and the lighting was amazing. The property they have at the Little River flower Farm is absolutely beautiful. If you don't know about them, they are an organic flower farm and they offer pick-your-own flowers. AND they have pick-your-own blueberries as well. The owner, Nancy, let me know that their blueberries are actually ready for picking sooner than a lot of other local farms and are usually ready right around or shortly after July 4th! I can't wait to go and pick all the flowers and blueberries. Oh, and did I mention they also do weddings? They have the most gorgeous ceremony spot in the woods right up next to the river. It's seriously dreamy. 

My favorite part of the sessions I did that morning ended up being what I was most nervous about.. the sun. It was a VERY sunny day and even though it was early, the sun was already pretty high in the sky. (This can make it difficult to do pictures as there are often very harsh shadows and squinty eyes) The trees on the property created the most beautiful shadows on the grass, and the dandelions and fallen petals just give it a very magical feel (or at least I think so!)
