Surprise! It’s a photo session!

I love a good surprise! And so do the wonderful folks in these Portland Maine East End family photos!

They decided to descend upon grandma’s birthday getaway, with a lot of help from grandpa.  

Completely unbeknownst to her, her two kids, two kids-in-law, and 2 grandkids showed up in Portland, Maine to surprise her for her birthday! 

When they arrived, they surprised her with the news we’d be having a photo session!

Blue was the color scheme decided on, and so sneaky grandpa suggested that she pack something nice to go out to dinner in and that perhaps it should be blue since that was her mother’s favorite color.  How sweet is that? Not only was he totally behind the surprise, he remembered her mother’s favorite color and made it extra personal for her! 

Thank you, friends, for letting me in on the surprise! I couldn’t be luckier to have felt a part of your gang for even a short amount of time!
