This was my first time meeting the Bessen family. They were all together with their parents in Harpswell, Maine, and it was a stunning setting–perfect for their family portrait.
I captured the family playing and swinging with their newest addition, a beautiful baby boy, who also posed for some adorable solo shots while exploring the yard.
With the soft light and the warm colors of their clothing, I found these shots to be absolutely dreamy.
We climbed down the cliff in front of their house and got some amazing photographs with the cascading cliffside as a backdrop.
Because the tide was low, we spent some time by the rocky shoreline, where I captured all the different couples, siblings, and children with their parents.
The Bessen family was so accommodating and welcoming. They really made our time together wonderful.
Bessen Family, thank you so much for choosing me to photograph this special moment in time. I wish you all the love and happiness in the world.
