Poulin Family at Drakes Island

Recently I took some portraits for the Poulin family at one of their favorite spots, Drakes Island, in Wells, Maine. It was a chilly day, (December in Maine, on the beach!) but you can't beat the gorgeous light in the afternoon sun by the ocean. They bravely took off their jackets and dealt with the wind, and then we had some fun!  Check out some of the images from our mini session:

Jay's eyes are the color of liquid chocolate, Handsome kid!

Ella has the most gorgeous hair. Is it ok to be jealous of a 9 year old?  :)

What's so funny......

        Thanks to the Poulin Family for a fun afternoon of picture taking at the beach!

The Ryan Family

Luke, so cute; a little leery of the camera at first, but everyone did a great job getting smiles out of him.

Hi Luke!

Love this one of Luke and Dad.

The eyes! So beautiful, just like his brother and sister.

He pulled himself up to look out the window, and was pretty happy with himself.  So cute!
Leah: Longest. Eyelashes. Ever.

Couldn't resist taking a pic of these fab shoes!

Beautiful eyes run in the family.
Recently I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful family, and had so much fun taking their pictures!  Usually I try to think of ways to get kids to smile and laugh, but they had ME laughing. So cute! By the way, these were taken right in their backyard, and in their home.  Just goes to show you, a special location isn't always necessary to get beautiful images!

Check out Matthew; Looking so handsome in his sweater vest.

He kept me laughing right along with him.

So cute!

Again, with the gorgeous eyes!!
I love how Luke looks to Matthew, to see if this is fun or not.

Beautiful and fun family.

See where the kids get their adorableness?

Thank you Ryan family for letting me photograph you, I had a ball! Your adorable and fun kids make it easy!

Alexis and Aliya, sisters.

Shannon, Alexis and Aliya

Adam, Shannon, Alexis, and Aliya




family fun

Alexis; not only is she beautiful and smart, she's a skilled martial artist.

Fun Fact: They are all good looking, and they can all break boards with their bare hands.

Mr. B  is a 5th degree black belt, and also one of the most patient teachers I have ever seen.  

Check out Aliya in action.

See that silhouette on his uniform? That is actually him! 

Shannon can hold this stance forever.

Your family can train with this amazing family.

Just like her mom and dad!
This weekend I had the pleasure of photographing an amazing family at Rye Beach.   It was a gorgeous, sunny day, not too windy, and surprisingly warm.  The Boisvert's  are not only  wonderful people, they are all black belts, and own Mr. B's Tae Kwon Do.  One of the great things about this school is that it is family owned, and they encourage other families to train together, just like theirs.  A great way to stay active, have fun, and learn something new.  Adam is a 5th degree, his wife Shannon is a 4th degree, their daughter Alexis is a 2nd degree, and their daughter Aliya is a 1st degree black belt.  Check out some of their pictures!
