CAM & TANYA | Maine Engagement Photographer

A crisp, cool winter engagement session on Kennebunk’s rocky beaches.

The snow is softly falling outside of my office window and it is quiet. The kind of quiet that you can hear a pin drop in. The kind of quiet that shows up in your dreams. The quiet that you know will become present in your life of love. And in that comfort of the silence you know that you have him. You know that you belong to one another and in the silence of love, that… is all you need. Each other.

BEN & COREY | Kennebunkport Engagement Photographer

As I am snuggled up under a blanket with a heater blowing on me, I can still get the chills that came from Ben and Corey’s session. With blowing wind, and temps in the high 20’s we all braved the brisk air and headed down to Kennebunkport  for their Maine Engagement Session to stroll the streets of the Village. Ben and Corey, your love story is sweet and I cannot to share in it and your wedding day.

Engaged: Ben & Corey

This little truck… it blew by causing the snow to blow p.e.r.f.e.c.t.l.y. and the way Corey was snuggled into Ben and laughing because it was freezing… We couldn’t have planned it better.

When I sit and actually think about what 2013 will look like, I really am excited.

I know I haven’t been the best about sharing our journey in life this last year, and to me that is okay. Because in all honesty, that means that I have been present in my personal life. In my marriage, in my mothering, and in my family. I have have lists, (lot of lists) full of dreams, goals, to do’s, what worked, what didn’t… What I want, where I want to go…

But for me in 2013, the biggest dream/goal/resolution I have is; To be Present & Enjoy the Now. It is easy enough to type. Simple enough words to live by. Right?

This my friends, is one of my biggest challenges in life. I wrote on my Facebook page last night this:

2013 will be about living fully and simply. It will be about the quality of living and dreaming. It will be about trusting that what I do and how I provided myself to my family and my business is enough. It will be about… Health. Love. Laughter. Genuine Character. Living. Dreaming. Doing.

So while the lists for 2013 are in fact being made… Today I choose to be still. Be still in the now. Acknowledge all that 2012 brought to us, to our family, to our businesses. Gather the thoughts and our gratefulness that this past year brought to us.

Happy 2013. May all your dreams become reachable.
