* Sam and Kyle


Sam DePoy-Warren is a talented photographer who lives in Farmington. In addition to her successful photography business, I Do Click, Sam is also an amazing writer, teacher and she's a graduate student! Sam first sent me an introductory email last winter, asking me a few questions about my business. That initial exchange became a steady electronic back-and-forth, and even the opportunity for J and I to consult Sam on some of business strategies.

We have been trying to squeeze in a quick holiday card portrait for weeks, and our schedules finally aligned today! Sam and her super husband Kyle made the trip down to South Portland for a hike through our favorite dog haven, Hinckley Park, with their two pointers Alder and Nikon.

This is my favorite!

And this is what most of the other images look like. ;)

Kidding. We did manage to find a handful of places for less rowdy portraits.

How sweet are Sam and Kyle together?

Nikon is 5-months old today!

And Alder is his big sister (brrr! It was a cold day to be swimming!).

Getting ready to leave.

Those pups are too cute (and you gotta love Sam's crocodile mittens)!

So great to see you all today! Dakota and Destin enjoyed having you over after for some serious playtime, too! Let's do it again soon! And thanks for the yummy Starbucks-inspired pumpkin spice latte cheesecake! Yum!

    I was going to make many insightful comments about your lovely photos, but the words "pumpkin spice latte cheesecake" totally erased all other thoughts from my mind.

    I will say that Sam's mittens are very cute. And I think the last B&W photo is my favorite.

  2. We adore them! All day, we keep logging back into the gallery to peek at them. When we were going through and marking our favorites, I kept saying, "Ky, make that one a favorite" and he finally said, "What's the point? You've had me mark every single one!" And choosing a holiday card pic is taking us hours! They totally capture us in all of our craziness, which we love! We couldn't be happier with the results and had such a blast catching up with the four of you. Sorry Alder can be such a wench sometimes and that the pumpkin spice latte cheesecake didn't come out as well as I wanted... I promise I'll bring another one once I've perfected it! Again, much much thanks!

    Wow! We just recieved our photo christmas cards from Emilie inc. yesterday, and they seriously rock! Despite my stage freight, over being shot Em made the shoot really easy and comfortable, and i was truly psyched with the result!

    Sam and I really had a great time spending the day with you and j. I hope that you have a great holiday season, and that we have the chance to visit again really soon!
