Ogunquit Maine Marginal Way Family Portrait

Little CC was the star of this family portrait session…


The family wanted a location that showcased the beauty of Maine, while also highlighting their relaxed personalities. Since they decided to spend this summer in Ogunquit, it was an obvious choice to go with The Marginal Way.


Marginal Way is a 90-year-old footpath with great views and amazing light. The rocky shoreline complimented their coastal themed attire perfectly!


I spent an hour with them, capturing candid moments and lots of smiles — including CC’s grin when her father smothered her in kisses.


I can’t tell you enough how relaxed and fun this group was. I felt instantly comfortable with them, which made for a very natural shoot.


CC was a little too relaxed (and happily comfortable!) with her grandpa. I caught a big yawn and a little twirl of her hair.


We captured each couple together, grandmother and father, as well as the siblings.

I feel like she has the whole world in her eyes. They were absolutely stunning in the light.



As always, we ended by gathering all the kids with their parents, and the rest of the family.



When I first made contact with grandma, she expressed some discomfort with having her pictures taken. A lot of people aren’t always comfortable at the thought of hiring a professional photographer or being in front of the camera. I understand this, and appreciate when clients are open about their reservations, because I’m able to take the extra time and care to get the best photos.  

Melissa Mullen Photography Review

When her CC is grown, she will be able to look back and see the love she was surrounded with as a baby. It will mean so much to her, regardless of the worries and doubts. She will only see love and happiness. That’s why I love what I do.
