It took a little while for winter to fade and spring to rise, but the weekend I distinctly felt spring’s arrival I asked Rihan to spend an evening with me and enjoy the warmth upon our faces. As the snow gave way to the sun, we wandered around downtown Bangor and the city forest and welcomed the warm weather by creating outdoorsy portraits. Hello, spring- please stick around.

Here are a few of my favorite portraits of Rihan.

Last weekend I spent an entire day following the Kangas family in western Maine to capture them, candidly, in their day to day activities (and to continue my personal work that I started at Foundation Workshop, which you can learn more about here).  They made waffles, ran around the house and local gym, laughed, broke down in tears when things didn’t go their way, danced with reckless abandon, and I couldn’t help but love capturing all of their honesty and love they exuded because the moments I was capturing were all the more dynamic because of it.  Thank you, Kangas family- here are a few of my favorites from our day together.
