Family Portrait at Fort Williams

We are always incredibly excited to photograph families... especially when there is a new addition to the family involved!!  The Webster family rallied their 4 year-old son and newborn daughter on a dreary, foggy morning, to capture some family pictures by the Portland Head Lighthouse last week.  Their son was a little unsure of the whole experience at first, but he warmed up to the camera pretty quickly and, before long, was directing Tige on the best places and poses to photograph.  It was a great time!!  What a wonderful family!  Congratulations on your baby girl!

A taste of Summer

Nothing says summer like the sweet, juicy, delectable goodness of strawberries!!  I was so excited to find a place open for picking this early in the season, that I packed up the kids and headed off for a morning of harvesting.  Dole's Orchard in Limington is a little bit of a drive from the Portland area, but, seriously well worth it!!

I love the strawberry stains on her dress in the background!

By the time we got home, the kids had little strawberry-juice smiles from snacking on these yummy morsels all morning long.  The people at Dole's Orchard are incredibly friendly and they have so many fruits to harvest at their farm!  All summer long you can get, strawberries, blueberries, peaches, pears, plums and more!  I can't wait to go back. :)

Family Portrait at Drakes Island Beach

It was a glorious afternoon for pictures of The Heise family at Drakes Island Beach over Memorial Day Weekend.  Tige had a great time with them capturing some portraits while they enjoyed their vacation.  The kids especially liked that they could kick off their shoes for the pictures. :)   We hope you had a wonderful vacation!!

Katie & Rob

These are two of the sweetest people I've ever met.  Their kindness, generosity and love for each other is truly inspiring!  Katie and Rob celebrated their wedding day on June 5th (the anniversary of the first time they spoke) at the Camden Opera House with a reception following at The Whitehall Inn.  It was an intimate, family affair and one of the most special days we've had the honor to photograph.  From the anxious and emotional moments leading up to the ceremony... to the hilarious (and quite remarkable) karoake performance of 'Love Shack', this is a day we won't soon forget!  So much fun was had by all!!  Here are just a few images of Katie and Rob's day... 

An additional treat for us, is that we now get to share our own wedding date with Katie and Rob!!  It's hard for me to believe we celebrated 11 years on the same day as their wedding. They very sweetly surprised us by clearing the dance floor and playing our wedding song at their reception. We will always hold a very special place in our heart for you both!! We wish you a wonderful and joy-filled life together... and a most relaxing honeymoon!! :)

It's always such an honor for us to take part in such significant family celebrations.  And, it's made all the sweeter when we receive such wonderful remarks about our work...

"Dear Bethany & Tige,
Your photos of Alison & Jason's wedding are just awesome. We are thrilled with everything and the special moments that you captured. We cannot express enough how thrilled we are with your work.  It was a pleasure to work with both of you."
