And onto April! We're almost caught up! April was a BLAST. We had a lot of fun things going on and the weather finally started showing signs of Spring toward the end. Here's a peek at how we spent the fourth month of 2016!
The FAMILY BALL! We three attended the Orono Family Ball held by Julian's school. I had many favorite moments from the day, but I know I'll always remember Julian and Derek getting ready for the dance in Julian's room. Julian had a suit and bow tie to put on and He would NOT let me in to see before he was all suited up! I knocked so many times, eager to see all that cuteness in a bow tie, just to hear Julian yell, "I'm NOT ready yet!" It was so cute. I held a photo booth for a portion of the dance. The right picture is one of my favorite photos of my two handsome dates ever.
As always, April's weather was all over the place. There was no really heavy snowfall though so I can't complain! That one week where it got into the 70's we were outside as much as possible. Julian starts T-Ball practice today so one day we went and looked around the field that he'll practice on. The rain also gave us an excuse to take out our favorite umbrella again.
Turns out Julian loves to hike and maybe I do too! His April break fell during National Park Week when all entrance fees are waived. So one day we headed over to Acadia National Park. We did the Cadillac Summit loop, which is a great one to do with kids because you still get all the views without having to actually climb a mountain (We are novices here!) and the Jordan Pond Loop. The Jordan Pond Loop was really fun! About a third of it is made up of boards to walk on and even has some rocky parts that made Julian feel like he was conquering Everest. Since that first hiking day we've also climbed Chick Hill.
I know, I know, enough about the weather, but when it finally turns it deserves a few acknowledgements. Every time winter ends and it's actually enjoyable to head outside it's like you get to rediscover your surroundings again. We've been taking as many walks as possible .
We had a movie night and Julian got to view The Princess Bride for the first time ever in his LIFE. That just felt like it deserved a moment all it's own!
I got to be part of a styled bridal shoot with two of my great photographer friends Lexi Lowell and Kate Crabtree. We got to use the gorgeous French's Point in Stockton Springs Maine as our backdrop. We had florals from Morningtide Garden and hair and make up from Dana Bement! I also got to see two of my past brides, Mellisa and Torey as they were our models. It was such a fun chance to work with other creatives and practice shooting before the actual season started.
And now to May! The start of the season! I have quite a few engagement sessions this month and then three weddings in June! We're doing it! If you're interested in booking a session with me please contact me over here, I'd love to see you for my 2016 season.
