baby portraits

Broadturn Farm, Scarborough Maine, Family Portrait Session

In the fall Maine is exceptionally beautiful. I wanted to make sure that I offered family portraits at a location that would capture the foliage and be fun too! I did a lot of research and came up with a list of great locations. I plan on using some of them in the future for sure. This year I picked

Broadturn Farm

. They have weddings there in the fabulous old barn, they offer CSA's, and organic produce and amazing flowers as well. You should make it a plan to stop in there if you haven't already. It's a really great place with a lot to offer. There are some trails to walk in the woods which is always fun too!

It also turned out to be the perfect spot for roaming around and taking family portraits. Here are a few of my favorites from the session I did with the Kierstead Family. This little Callie peanut was SO cute!! She is turning one soon and she is the perfect age for capturing those sweet little chubby cheeks that leave so quickly as they get older. 

I have some other family sessions I will be posting soon as well. 

I usually offer these sessions in the spring and the fall. I may be adding some studio mini sessions for families as well soon. In the meantime keep an eye out for the newsletter, blog, and Facebook posts I use to announce these upcoming sessions. They are just 20 minutes long so they are quick for the family and lots of fun!! 

jan, actress headshots and my view of the artist life...

jan has been working in the theater for some time now. she decided that she was done with her day job and wanted to be an actress full time. so she left her job and is living her dream instead. i love that she has chosen to do this. it takes such courage to make this kind of jump. in a society where money seems to matter so much, it is a real leap of faith to try and make a living being an artist.

i know this myself. all artists share this commonality. there are many of us that have worked several jobs while trying to make a living with our art. in the end, i think, it doesn't matter if you 'make it' only that you have the heart to try. because that is the truest form of living and i can do nothing less than that.

here are the photos of jan that i connect to. i think they show her beauty-i mean look at that porcelain skin!- and her intensely beautiful inside as well.

these two were so cute and such troopers...we were out in the old port on a day when it was 25 degrees, but felt colder to me! they were all love and happiness despite the cold. i can't wait to see them all dressed up on the wedding day.
