Spring has Sprung!!

I am SO happy that Spring is here and we can finally spend a lot more time outside in the sun, even if the wind and chill is still around at times, bundling and being outside with NO SNOW is so worth it!!

I am most loving the natural light that is around and easier to use with being outside, getting those nice bright photos that "pop" the subject right out off it is such a pleasure to capture.

I see that my sessions are beginning to pick up as the "word" gets out and is spread about my name & my  photography. I want to thank everyone for giving referrals and kind words about my photos and work.

I am now looking for any current/past clients to write a "testimonial" for me to use on my website/fanpage for new clients to know what to expect when they consider scheduling a photo session with me. I am willing to offer 10% off your next session if you are willing to provide a testimonial for me, I only request to receive it by email before the end of the month of April. (EMAIL ADDRESS:  THANK YOU!!

***** The fan page fan size is growing, thank you to everyone for "suggest" ing the page to your friends and family.. I appreciate the "exposure" ...

My contact information for anyone with any question about scheduling a session and/or further information is:

PHONE: (207) 671-9888
I am located in Poland, Maine

I am also looking to soon get setup with a nice photography website.. im just being rather particular with what I want in a site.

I will leave you now with a couple recent pictures of my girls and my daughter's dear friend. :)

Loving the Sun coming out!!

Isn't Spring fabulous!! Especially coming out of a Maine winter, nothing is quite like the spring-time air & warmth and the sunshine that comes along with it!! Even the Spring "showers" ... are a lot of fun, washing away the little remaining snow... and creating fun puddles for splashin!!

Im having a LOT of fun shooting pictures outside again/more now ... it's so much easier and fun with the natural lighting ... and I feel like I've come a long way since Fall-time, which excites me!!

Here are a few of my girls from recently "playing" around ;)

And a couple of them with their father.. :) They are all so patient and kind to allow me to take so many photos of them, but how can I resist?! 

As far as Laurie Goodheart Photography.... I am very much looking forward to a double-family session on Saturday in the morning and then another seperate session in the afternoon... will be a FUN FUN day!!

Also, I am working on getting my pricing compiled and clear to post here on my blog for anyone interested and/or to forward to friends and family that you think needs OR wants to have Portraits done this Spring or Summer.

Enjoy the weather!!
