I will always be thankful for this couple. I have been capturing photos of Abby and Eamon at Perkins Cove in Ogunquit Maine for the past four years! It has been a blessing to watch their relationship and their family grow, year after year.
We met for their family adventure session at sunset and found the perfect trails just off the beaten path. We walked around chatting about life and created so many amazing memories. Abby and her family have been vacationing in Ogunquit Maine her whole life. She and Eamon love the Perkins Cove Drawbridge, and it has always been a beautiful backdrop for their family photos.
This sweet little two year old is full of spunk. It made for some great photos, but she definitely tested her parent’s patients. They thought their little guy would be the one slowing us down because we were out way past his bedtime, but he couldn’t have been happier to take photo after photo. Sometimes kids have meltdowns, and they don’t always want to smile at the camera. Sometimes they want to run down the trail and pick pretty flowers. When this happens we roll with it. Some of the best images are candid. I love capturing kids hopping and twirling because that’s when they show their true personality.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Family adventure sessions are not perfect. There are moments that are hard, there are times you will want to pack everything back into the car and call it a day. But when you have a photographer who encourages to let those moments go, that’s when we get to create magic. You get to search for four-leaf clovers, and dance as the sunsets over the harbor behind you. You will chase your little one up and down hills, scooping them up as they laugh. When it’s all over you will get to see the beautiful moments that were captured in between all the meltdowns. These are the moments you will treasure, these are the times you will wish hadn’t gone by so fast. They are only little once, be sure you cherish all the time you have with them.
