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!)

Mommy & Me Mini Sessions | Maine Family Photographer

Hi all!

As my newsletter subscribers already know, I'm excited to share that I'm offering Mommy & Me mini sessions in honor of Mother's Day! You heard right (sorry dads), mini sessions for just the mommas. Here's the rundown..

Saturday, May 6, 2017

$100 - 15 minutes - 5 digital images (with option to purchase more) - Print release

Buxton, ME

As mothers we have a lot of things in common and a lot of difference. We come in different sizes and styles, but one common thing that I think we all have in common is that we aren't in the frame enough. Sure, we are taking pictures of our children, our families, our lives, but how often are we actually in the pictures? We all have different reasons that this happens and a lot of the time, it's really not intentional. But I want you to think about the pictures from your childhood. How many pictures of your mother do you have? Chances are, not as many as you'd like. 

It will be a day full of moms and their kids, making a conscious decision to capture these fleeting memories. When our children are grown, we'll be able to look back on this day and remember how we felt. A mother's love is a powerful and beautiful thing. Let's capture it together and savor these moments and freeze time for just a minute. 

I created this cute little graphic with the basic details about the sessions. Feel free to share it around. 

Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.
