Little Miss. A; Linda Barry Photography; Portland ME Photographer

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of photographing the cutest little girl with her mom and dad! We were fortunate enough to be able to do the session in the comfort of their own home — which is absolutely gorgeous, by the way! I’ll admit, that Addison didn’t quite seem too fond of the idea of having a stranger taking photos of her, but we made it through!

After this session, I can say with absolute certainty that the little ones will always dictate the session, and that is totally okay. It’s also super important to give the family space and allow mom and dad to have control of making their little one happy! If it wasn’t for Justin and Krissie, there’s no way this session would have turned out as well as it did. They were so patient and obviously knew what their girl wanted and needed! They helped keep her laughing and moving from one activity to the next. Take a look at the memories I was able to capture of this precious family!!


She had the most adorable room! I swear, this family was straight out of a fabulous magazine.

The bubbles were an EXCELLENT idea! You go, mom and dad! 🙂


Love the effect of natural light! This little lady was just too cute! 2013-01-23_0004 2013-01-23_0005

This was after I had let her use my camera to take a photo of mom and dad. She was a little happier, but just wanted to see the photo! 🙂


Anyone who knows me, knows that I can’t pass up a photo of food! Krissie gave me a cookie for the drive home, but you best believe that it was gone before I even got to the end of the road! It was delicious!!


Daddy’s girl 🙂


They were reading the cutest book – Thank You God for Daddy. How precious is that??!2013-01-23_0009 2013-01-23_0010 2013-01-23_0011 2013-01-23_0012 2013-01-23_0013

At this point I was “auntie!” She kept saying “come on, auntie!”2013-01-23_0014 2013-01-23_0015

This photo would not have been possible if it wasn’t for Justin’s quick thinking! He was lifting her up in the air (which she giggled like crazy at) and then swung her around real quick and they all leaned in for a photo while she was super happy!! Again — trust the parents!!
