Periodically, I offer studio mini sessions for kids.   Keep an eye out for them because they are fun, a great deal, and only happen when the inspiration to have a studio full of little whirlwinds strikes me!  Each $100.00 session is 10-15 minutes (2 kid limit) and comes with a shared gallery and a 5×7 print.  As you can see, even studio sessions can be fun and full of life.  I really love to photograph kids just giggling and being themselves.  Enjoy looking!

Rene Roy Photography offers high end custom portrait shoots that capture YOU, in all your uniqueness and fun!  Amazing Maine locations, multiple outfit changes, and my skill and vision = Photographs you will cherish!  Leave this important life stage to a professional for heirloom photographs that will stay in your family for years to come.  I can visit you at your home or location of your choice in the state of Maine.  Amelia and her mother Gretchen  chose the John Calvin Stevens-designed Stone House in Freeport currently owned by USM.  I have heard it may be for sale, which unfortunately, may make it unavailable for future portraits.  It was a fantastic location with beautiful gardens and nice architectural elements as well.  Amelia, having participated in the theatre dept., was a natural in front of the camera!   See for yourself 🙂

This woodsy path was great for both full length and close portraits.  Nothing says “Maine” like pine trees!

I love this photograph with the dog, it’s so full of life and happiness!

Rene Roy Photography offers high end custom portrait shoots that capture YOU, in all your uniqueness and fun!  Amazing Maine locations, multiple outfit changes, and my skill and vision = Photographs you will cherish!  Katie and I had a fantastic shoot with 2 great locations in Belfast Maine.  The waterfront (right downtown), and and old train station complete with vintage train cars made for perfection.  Mom and Dad were a great help in getting me to the old train station ( I had driven by it before and they knew where it was!).  We added in Katie’s sister Hillary who I photographed a few years ago for some “sister love” images!   Contact me today to schedule your custom portrait session!   Leave this important life stage to a professional for heirloom photographs that will stay in your families for years to come.

Posing on these vintage train cars in Belfast Maine was so fun!  I could have stayed here all day!  I found a car that complemented the colors in Katie’s outfit and we were golden!

On our shoots, I like to do a variety of expressions, and include full length and close up images.

LIFE IS GOOD:

How lucky was I to be a part of Miss Cora’s 4th Birthday party in Hermon Maine?!  Mom, wanted to have a party full of fun and chose to host it at the Hermon Maine Snowmobile Club for ease of clean up, to have space for crafts, and a photo booth!  The theme was Knights and Fair Maidens.  My friend is a very talented and creative graphic designer here in Maine.  She made the adorable invites below.  I hopped right on the photo booth idea.  I love dress up and photography (of course!)  I had been eyeing the fun photo booth backgrounds I had seen on Pinterest and at some of my Maine weddings.  They were made of long torn strips of fabric in three or four colors made into a fluttery curtain or garland of sorts.  I thought, “Hey, I could make that!”  And Cora’s birthday party photo booth was the perfect opportunity.  I had wanted one for my Sabattus Maine photography studio anyway.  I had some props and Bridgit had trunks of things since Cora loves dress up!  She also went all out buying the knights outfit, which all the boys loved.  Guests enjoyed two fun craft projects; crown decorating and mask painting.  The crowns were made from fun scrapbook papers and were adjustable with a velcro.  Stickers and jewels were available to embellishment to your hearts content.   We dined on punch, macaroni & cheese, PB&J with crusts removed, and cheese puffs!  A grand feast for any little lord or lady.  The photo booth shenanigans are sure to make you smile.  Miss Cora was very cute when everyone sang “Happy Birthday”, and she blew out the candles on her pink cone castle birthday cake made by the cake decorator extraordinair, Karen.  “Aunty” Michele was a big help at the photo booth and made the gift bags that were awarded for the castle bean bag toss game (created by dad!) where everyone was a winner.  Unfortunately I was too busy at the photo booth to get photographs of that.  After the game we all went outside for the Pinata grand finale!  Yay candy!  I hope you enjoy these photographs.  Remember to photograph your family all the time.  They change so quickly, and before you know it they are starting families of their own.  Happy Birthday Cora!  I am so proud to be your “aunty”.  Every time I see you I am impressed by the new things you have learned, your cuteness, and fun personality.  Just like Mom and Dad you are sure to grow into an amazing person!  xoxoxo Aunt Rene

The torn fabric backdrop came out great, and I plan on offering it for birthdays, mini photo sessions, and some of my Maine wedding clients.  I can even create one special for your event with your colors (yours to keep when the wedding or party is over).

The Details:

The Birthday Girl:  The most fabulous Miss Cora

Photo Booth Creation:  Rene Roy Photography

Photography: Rene Roy Photography

Cake:  Karen Clark

Crafts and Theme:  Bridgit Cayer,  ideas

 Pinterest, using the search terms: castle party, knights, swords, medieval and maiden. ( she purposefully stayed away from “prince” and “princess” so as to locate more unique ideas — no Disney stuff.)

 She looked around on etsy.com, too. That’s where she found the handmade cloth banner made of castle-themed fabric triangles (seen in one of the photographs).

 Gift Bags and Snacks:  Michele Prentice

 Music:  Bridgit’s Phone!
