I love working with the “S” Family. Not only are Ariele, Jeffrey, Henry, and Lillian absolutely adorable, and so incredibly sweet and kind, but Ariele knows alllllll the best places for photo sessions on MDI. Every year I follow her lead, and every year I leave totally pumped to have another cool spot in my back pocket for family sessions on the island. Of the four years now that I’ve worked with these guys, I have to say this year was by far my favorite. We had a gorgeous location at the Claremont Hotel in Southwest Harbor, insanely cool fog rolling in over the water, two goofy goofy kiddos in front of my camera, and one family that was full of a ton of love, affection, and total appreciation for each other and their annual trip to Maine. These guys have been through a lot over the past few years, and it was extra special to see them all healthy and happy and all about family and vacation during our time together. Here are my many many favorites from this year’s session – I can’t wait to see them all again next year in what will be sure to be my new favorite place on the island (no pressure, Ariele! 🙂 ).
