Seeing this NYC crew in Maine has become an annual highlight of my summer. A fun-filled hour of outfit changes, toothy grins and a tour around the beach. Our session last summer was also in the morning and, knowing where we could find the best light, we found ourselves repeating our steps a touch – a nostalgic nod and also the beginning, perhaps, of a traditional line-up on the deck? This trio is all set for their holiday cards!
Little people are very busy and a lifestyle portrait session is more like a photographic playdate than it is all formal line-ups. We do those at the beginning of the session and then I follow the children's lead on what they want to do. It yields the most natural smiles and best chance at capturing their true personalities. A enthusiastic high five to big brother James who was celebrating his 5th birthday! See you all next summer!
