This was the first time I had an opportunity to shoot at York Beach, Maine. It was a perfect backdrop for a beautiful mother and daughter photo session. We started with a shot in front of the Goldenrod, which is a homemade candy and ice cream shop that's been in business since 1896. That shot kicked us off for a few locations on and around the beach, including the historic Union Bluff Hotel. It was in the middle of September, and we took advantage of the beautiful late summer weather that seemed to be sticking around after August was a memory. I personally loved that an important part of the family was Percy the dog. This little pup cracked me up as she was constantly ready for the camera and was such a character.
