November on the beach 💕
I’m all about the chaos, but man there is also something to be said about those quiet moments with perfect pockets of light.
It was a twirl in the sun in your cowgirl boots kind of night tonight.
Siblings by chance. Friends for life by choice ❤️
No power today meant no school today, which meant I had a little assistant with me on my photo session this afternoon. And she was absolutely perfect. 💕
“I got this one, Mom”
Giggle fit. 😂
Girl’s got the wind in her hair and a smile on her face.
Five seconds of serious.
Upside downs are totally my new favorite silly kid moment.
I have been trying to get someone to do a blanket-wrapped fall beach session for years now, and I finally got it last night! So excited to share more of this beautiful family. More sneak peeks on the blog. Link in profile!
Fall meets summer on the coast.
Things I will never complain about: Kids who beg me to keep taking more photos. 😍
Because turning 8 is awesome. (And so is birthday money!)
May you never stop being amazed by the sea 💕
I will never tire of photographing sandy toes 😍 Swipe left and check out the blog to see who these toes belong to and soak up the awesomeness of the “A” Family’s fun York Harbor session. Link in profile!
Happiness is a sunset, a dock, and summer nights like this.
School is back in session, the house is quiet, and sweet moments like this are on my editing docket for today. Not a bad way to start the week at all. 💕
These little explorers and their family hit the blog tomorrow!
Here’s to creating your own path on this Monday morning.
Still totally a sucker for awesome curls 💜
Stay curious 😎
Summer fun isn’t over quite yet. ☀️
Sister love ❤️
Beach treasures 😂
I spend a lot of time wondering what she’s thinking. Much of it she tells me (seriously she talks alllllllll the time), but I know there is a quiet dreamer in there, making plans, wondering about the world, and figuring out who she is and will be. How lucky I feel to be by her side as she dreams and plans. I love watching her grow.
Until next time, favorite city of ours. ❤️
Pure joy. These guys hit the Blog a bit later on today!
Pink tutu? ✔️ Hip sunglasses? ✔️Perfect curls? ✔️ Serious ballerina moves? ✔️✔️✔️Nora rocked her photo session, and so did her mom and dad! More on the blog at KristinaOBrien.com/blog

Flip turned upside down 😎
It's @yarmouthclamfestival weekend here in town so this kid is outta here for the next three days! I'll be back next week, kicking off the week with a session with four pups and one seriously cute baby...and some pretty awesome adults too. Have a great weekend, everyone!
Waiting for the fun to begin. Clam Fest 2018 is finally here!
Me: Did you wash your hair? Molly: Yes, of course. Me: Are you lying to me? Molly: Mom, I never lie to you. Me: That's not true. Molly: Uhhh, yeah, that's totally not true.
When the start of the session shows up like this, you know it's going to be a good time. 😎

I was at the @nonantumresort this week for a very special anniversary, but these cute faces are the ones that stole my heart! Check out the blog for a few more sneak peeks of the whole crew, including the guests of honor! KristinaOBrien.com/blog
"Tell me about that boy at school who makes you blush." "Geez, mom."
I was away from the ocean for 8 days last week, and my heart literally ached for it. I know it's a little pathetic, but my soul knows what fuels it's fire. I may not feel quite so lucky to live here in February, but a gorgeous Maine summer is so worth the wait.
Strong girls = strong world. 💪
Last night = the most perfect combination of silly and sweet. Cannot wait to share more from this session!

This kid 💗
And finally, a night that felt like summer. 💜
Spring feet = happy feet ❤️
The 'tude game is strong with this one.
She loves unicorns...and dancing on tables. We may be in trouble....
So grateful for our new neighborhood and play outside evenings with new friends. 💕
Current mood. Is it Friday yet?
They bring the fun.

April showers mean the snacks and hair chalk coloring moves to the garage.
Some days it's a battle....
No cameras allowed at the dinner table. (See what I did there? 😜) 📷
I swear I closed my eyes and she grew up overnight.
Look up high...that's where the dreams are found. Extremely excited to share that I will be living the dream as a full-time photographer, starting in June! The dreams are big and I can't wait to work every day to make them come true. ❤️📷❤️️
Happy day, beautiful Earth 🌏
What's really happening while mom and dad have their photo taken 😂
Happy and free 💕
