Ten inches of snow on the way tomorrow, and I am officially dreaming of the sand and water between my toes.
Beach happy ❤️
Winters are usually quiet around here, making this the perfect time to book an at-home session to capture those daily moments you cherish the most ❤️
This unicorn (and her momma!) are pretty pumped that the ugly pink carpet is finally out of the bedroom!!
Ski mask must match camera, must match camera case. (Now if I could jut get her to remember to open the shutter 😂)
Ready for the slopes.
Day 365. We did it, kiddo! ❤️
Merry Christmas everyone!
Sights on the big guy! 🎅
"Mom, when I wear this tie, I feel like a boss." "Buddy, you don't need to wear a tie to be a boss." "I know mom, I'm a GIRL BOSS."
Brothers ❤️ See more of these cuties on the blog! KristinaOBrien.com/blog
Dreaming of the sea. Me too, buddy. Me too.
Swinging into a long weekend!
Pom Pom hat season is here.
Don't worry brother, big sis is here. ❤️ More on the blog - KristinaOBrien.com/blog
Things are changing!! I'm slooowly transitioning my personal work to my profile at @kristina_obrien. Starting in January this profile will be for client and scenic work only, and the other will be for my personal lifestyle work. I would love to have you join me on both. My 365 has breathed such life into my own personal work and I can't see where it takes me next! Please follow both accounts, and thank you for your support! ❤️
May you always be this excited to see your own reflection 😂
Coming to the blog tonight: butterfly wings, scooter rides, family snuggles, and more. Can't wait to share this silly and fun session!
Every. Last. Drop.
Halloween was a strange one with no power in town, so we made the trek to Freeport for some downtown trick-or-treat fun. Not before "Mal" had her photo shoot first though...this kid rocked her character this year!
What a day it's been. Scariest wind storm of my life last night, tree down this morning, and heading into hour 15 without power and some seriously spotty cell service. This super hero keeps her head high and her smile big. What a trooper she has been today!
Sister snuggles ❤️❤️❤️
How it feels to have just spent the afternoon of October 28th barefoot on the beach...in Maine.
Friday and on top of the world. Go get it today, kids!
Sunshine and strawberry curls..heart melting.
The fun begins...
I'm this excited that these crazy kids' (and their mom and dad's too!) seriously fun Old Port session is on the blog tonight! KristinaOBrien.com/blog
"A boy at school told me today that he thinks I have a crush on him. I told the teacher because he should know that kind of talk at school is inappropriate at our age."
When your fall apple-picking style is a rainbow dress, fish scale leggings, boots, and a bright purple puffy vest 🍁 🍎
Sandy hands = best hands. Hands down. (Sorry, had to do it).
Tonight the headless belly monster made it to @gillettestadium for the first time.
Ahhh the freedom of Friday night with the whole weekend ahead of you.
Boy today was tough. I spent a lot of time thinking about the world we are raising her in, while so grateful for her innocence. Her spark and zest for joy gives me hope. When the world is dark, she is my light. Hug 'em extra tonight. Hell, hug 'em extra every night. They're worth it.
When you get perfect light...and the goofiest kid. Nice 'stache, yo.
I don't know what it is about the tops of kid's heads. Maybe it's because that's the view we have of them for so many years until they eventually outgrow us, or maybe it's the incredibly sweet way their hair comes together on top - different for each and every one of them. Regardless, it's a detail and a view I love to capture during these special little kid years.
Let me tell you - preparing your house to sell is no joke. In the past week, our life has been 99.9% about getting the house ready for the listing and today's open house, and .01% about this kid...and she has been a ROCK through what has been one of the most chaotic weeks of our life. Today's few hours out of the house turned into 8 hours out of the house as the open house turned into additional showings, and exhausting as it all has been, 8 hours of time dedicated to this kid was exactly what we needed. We ate lobster and ice cream, took a Duck Tour through our own city, explored the trails in town, and enjoyed park time with the dog. Captured here is the two seconds of the day she wasn't smiling or being goofy, but it's a quick capture that shows her standing tall despite a week that could have made any other seven-year-old only child lose their mind. I'm so grateful for this strong kiddo, and so proud to call her mine.
When you're more pumped about the popcorn than the movie...
To my beautiful and sweet Molly: today you are seven. You are kind and loving, sweet and silly. You love fairies and mermaids, field hockey, and softball. You are strong and determined. You take care of your dad and I when we are stressed or sick, and you make us laugh when we are sad...and when we are happy. You are good to your friends, and kind to strangers. You never stop trying to be a better person. I have never been so proud of another person in my life, as I am of you. Happy Birthday Memmie-Doo. You, my love, are my greatest adventure. ❤️
Running through the last two days of the week like....
You know it's going to be a party when your session starts like this 😂
Um, can someone please tell me WHERE THOSE LONG LEGS CAME FROM?! This surely cannot be my baby girl 😭😍
The day before second grade. Loved our inaugural trip to Southport Island yesterday!
The feel of the undertow tickling your toes.
Eclipse Ready. 😎🌒
No pants beach night.
How could we resist this shirt for this kid?! Thanks for the awesome message, @oshkoshkids!
So grateful for new friends and fun adventures. See more favorites from last weekend's camping trip on the blog at KristinaOBrien.com/blog

When you're fabulous and you know it.
Upside down sillies!
Seeing your kid with your college best friends' kids...❤️️❤️️❤️️Love these sweet souls so very much!
Go wander today.
This kid is the best. She didn't blink an eye when I told her we were going off course this afternoon to chase the rolling fog and sacrifice our only free five minutes of the day for a quick mini photo shoot. So grateful for her patience and fun attitude as we navigate this year long project together. ❤️️
These kids ❤️
Random boats on the beach? Clearly prop worthy!
Keeping it weird at the cabin.
Sometimes you just gotta throw your feet up and take a mid-afternoon 30-second rest.
Two of a kind, straight to each other's arms 💕
Sweet, curious, and playful Nora is on the blog this afternoon! KristinaOBrien.com/blog
