Alexis and I worked together a few years ago for a short period of time and lots has happened in her life since then! She got a new job, got married, and moved to a different state! Time flies! Since she now lives in NH, we decided to meet in the middle and visit the beach for some photos. It was a cloudy day but that really does makes for the best photos!
Don’t you just love Alexis’ dress? It was so flowy and perfect for the occasion. Plus going barefoot at the beach is the only way to go!
After a while we took a break from the sand and walked through the shops of downtown Old Orchard Beach. I just loved this purple door! Right now the door was down because the carousel isn’t open for the season yet – but it will be soon! OOB really, and I mean REALLY, gets busy once summer officially begins and the tourists flock to the coast. We were lucky enough to pretty much have the beach to ourselves on this day.
Alexis is a natural in front of the camera and that beachy hair is just perfect!
After walking through the shopping strip, we stopped by Alexis’ truck to let her fur baby, Luna out to join us. This was Luna’s first time visiting the beach and boy did she LOVE it!
I think Luna’s nose was in overdrive! She was hilarious playing in the waves; she’d run right up to the edge of the water and when a wave crashed onto the beach, she’d go crazy with excitement and playfully dart away. Then she’d go right back for more!
Alexis loves her fur baby! Little Luna is only 10 pounds. She has a doggy bed in the passenger’s seat of Alexis’ truck which makes for a comfy ride. It’s time for Luna to get accustomed to road trips because soon enough she’ll be moving to South Carolina with her parents; Alexis’ husband is in the military and is getting a new assignment – very exciting for this family! I’m a little jealous that they’ll be somewhere much warmer than Maine. Plus they’ll still be near the coast which I’m sure the whole family is happy about.
After an awesome shoot and some great doggy playtime, it was time to leave the beach and head home. Look at Luna stare at her momma questioning why we’re leaving the beach. Haha! Don’t worry little fluffball, I’m sure you’ll have many more beach adventures in the future!
Thank you to Alexis and Luna for making the trip back to Maine to visit and have an awesome photo session. Good luck to you both on your move! Here’s to new places and exciting new experiences!
