Maine Newborn Photographer | Hiking Edition

mallette blog-4You guys!  I kid you not!  This Labor Day, my husband, two children and I headed to Mt. Major to hike (along with one gagillion others).  We’re headed up the trail when I see this dad headed down, carrying a very young baby in a front pack.  He’s got his earbuds in and the baby is sound asleep.  “Aww. That’s a great dad,” I think to myself.  Then I watch him come closer and as he’s almost passing us, I’m POSITIVE I recognize him.  I KNOW I’ve photographed him, his wife and little guy.  And because I love fun connections like this (or possibly because I’m bold and socially awkward) I reach out and touch him on his shoulder to get his attention.  At this point he probably thinks I’m a crazy lady but then I say, “I think I photographed you and your little one!”  (I’m praying that I’m correct and that he remembers me and doesn’t just give me some weird blank stare.)  And he does!  “Yes, you certainly did!”  He answered.  Then we had a fun little chat about his little guy and his wife off working her shift.  I just love moments like that!  Well, here is this sweet little mo-hawk man and his awesome parents!mallette blog-3
