fort williams family session|maine portrait photographer

so…i met jennilee a few years back at matt & amanda’s wedding…and then i saw her again this year at dani & greg’s wedding…and again at sarah & zach’s wedding.  this time it was her turn to get in front of my lens…with her cute husband and ADORABLE twin two year olds.

we met up this past sunday at fort williams in cape elizabeth…one of my favorite places to shoot.  there’s so much variety…you could shoot 4 sessions there in one day and have a different look for each one.

we started off at the lighthouse…bc…it’s maine, and you kind of HAVE to.  but it was CRAZY windy, and after getting the obligatory family-in-front-of-the-lighthouse picture…we moved to another part of the park full of sunlight and no wind.

this is sydney.  we bonded later.  she was my little monkey…mammy came along for child wrangling, and at one point, sydney asked to get down, and then walked over to me and put her arms up.  i happily obliged.  😀

SUCH a beautiful family…

know how i got that smile out of these two?  i told them dora was inside my lens.  they TOTALLY bought it…kendall-on the right-kept saying, “i see DOWA!”  it was ridiculously adorable.  and VERY effective.

i love the interaction in this one.  i know the highest goal of a family photo shoot is to get a picture of everyone looking at the camera and smiling, but i think these moments of family interaction are just as important…capturing that family dynamic…freezing that moment of time…will evoke more memories down the road than the perfect fridge photo.  😀

when 2 year olds decide to be unruly and rambunctious…make lemonade. i love this!

and of course, we had to take a few of just jennilee and troy.  because they’re still jennilee and troy, even if they’ve also become mommy and daddy.

we might or might not have trespassed in order to get inside this old building…totally worth it…you know…if we did.

thanks for coming to hang out with me, guys…i had a great time!

We had SO much fun with you on Halloween. The girls were quite restless(to put it nicely) and you wouldn’t even know it. You really captured the love we all have for each other. We LOVE them Gwyn. Thank you SO very much!!
