Mallory and Chris came into my life when they married in Bar Harbor a few years ago. Joel and I were lucky enough to be the ones chosen to photograph their gorgeous Bar Harbor Club wedding. They live in Georgia, so I assumed we’d never see them again after the wedding. However, a few years later, I heard that they were coming to stay at a family home in Deer Isle, Maine. While in Maine, I caught up with them in Stonington for some couples’ portraits in 2016. Since then, they have had the cutest baby on the planet, so it was time to catch up again! On a beautiful summer day, I spent time with them and baby E. in Deer Isle. Little did I know that a new tradition was starting. Now, I meet up with them once every summer to document their family. They’ve added a son to the mix since this portrait session so that you can see a more recent one featuring him here.
It’s become something I look forward to every year, and I’m already counting down the days until we meet again. I can’t wait to see what the kids’ personalities have turned into.
