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.

Happy October!

I just love October. It's my absolute favorite month of the year and leads right into all my favorite activities of the year. Apple picking, fall baking, everything pumpkin - except pumpkin spice coffee. I tried so hard to love it but no, it's gross. Sorry not sorry y'all. Not to mention the fairs, corn maze, foliage, and then leading into Thanksgiving and Christmas season. Seriously the best time of year. I'm almost half way through the semester and I feel like I'm doing pretty ok. It's a heavy courseload but I'm totally managing. 

As you may have seen if you follow me on Facebook, both mini session days are officially sold out. I'm super excited and I think they're going to be a lot of fun. I've been pretty busy this month and next month is going to be ~CRAZY~ but I'm so ready. 

Last week I had the pleasure of doing miss Liv's newborn pictures. I had done Maddie's maternity pictures a few months ago and I was so excited to get the call about Liv's birth. I love newborns and I love newborn sessions. Especially now that my kids are getting bigger (kindergarten is a big step guys) I love getting to soak in all the new baby goodness. I still can't get over how much hair this child has. She has more hair at 2 weeks old than my oldest did at 2 years old. (I'm barely joking right now)

Here are some of my favorites from my morning with the Carters:

Anderson Newborn Session | Portland, Maine 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. 

Are you expecting a child this fall/winter? Let's get something on the books!

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.

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!
