It has been a long day coming, and I am so thrilled that it is finally here!! This is a fresh look, a fresh start, and a fresh appreciation for this job I love so much. Welcome to the brand new blog!!

After working with a blogsite ( a website and blog all in one ) for a couple years, I decided that I wanted to go back to two different homes on the web. I wanted to begin blogging more frequently again, and I knew that for me that meant a separate website was a better fit for my brand.

To take a look back, especially if you’re new here, in the Fall of 2012, I launched my new photography brand under my personal name and it completely revolved around this concept of “Connection Portraits”. Building a niche for myself was one of my most fulfilling moves in business. I created a path for myself that required an undaunted level of commitment. Over the past year in particular, I began to grow into my shoes a bit. I gained more experience. I photographed the most sessions I ever have. And I learned a lot about myself and what truly fires me up.

One of the most important lessons I learned about specializing over last few years, is that the fulfillment wasn’t about choosing one type of “session”, but rather about choosing one type of “client”. And I have found that my clients are mothers. Curating a focus in my work is no longer about a given name or term to what I am doing, but it has been about learning who my client is, and in turn learning a great deal about myself and who I AM as a photographer and artist.

The past year has so much been about the bravery of trying new things. Challenging myself as I invested time and resources into learning the medium of photographing with traditional film. Stepping out in teaching, hosting workshops, and mentoring other photographers in new ways. It wasn’t that I was no longer afraid of failing at something, it was just that I got tired of letting that doubt hold my business back from potential growth and new identity. I made the resolve to be willing to try new things, even if they didn’t work or stick in the long run.

I knew that moving from Connecticut to Maine was going to be a good move for me last year. I knew it was the direction the Lord was giving me. What I didn’t see coming was just how much I would find myself in this new home. I saw that it began to shape my perspective, my values, my vision, my relationships, and ultimately my work.

I travel far and wide for clients, but finding home on the coastline of Maine has really grounded me in my business. My home is a great place of inspiration for what I create, and I knew that when I launched my new website and refreshed brand- that this idea of finding home on this coastline needed to be a center focus of the design elements and feel. (Of course the families that I work with get to see the REALLY good stuff, because you all know that I am ALL about the tangible client experience!! Beautiful additions in store for 2016!!)

So over the past year, I began blogging less and less. There were a lot of reasons behind this change, but mostly I just needed to know that it was really fitting to MY business- and not do it just because so many other photographers blogged consistently. The break was well needed as I began to learn that I truly valued it, and started to believe that I did have words to fill it with.

I’ll now be frequently sharing personal posts, my recent portrait work, travel adventures, and a behind the scenes look at running a creative business. Goodness, I’m so pumped, and I hope you are too!

Stratford Connecticut Newborn Photography by Yarmouth Maine Newborn Photographer Tiffany Farley, http://tiffanyfarley.comP i n

I have known Jocelyn & Harrison for a few years now, having connected through our church in Connecticut when I lived there, and Jocelyn is also an incredibly talented makeup artist who works for Simply Gorgeous by Erin. In the past I have photographed head shots for her healthy lifestyle blog, Miss Fit Foodie, but the majority of our working together was prior to my portrait sessions when she would be pampering the moms that I work with, and we would talk about her “someday” maternity and newborn portraits, and how she was already dreaming about them! So when she told me she was expecting her first baby, it was SO special, and we got to planning right away. We photographed both her maternity portraits and her newborn portraits in her beautiful Stratford Connecticut home. There was so much joy seeing these two as first time parents, and so much love for this little guy. Here are a few of my favorites from their newborn session, photographed on both digital and medium format black and white film.  Stratford Connecticut Newborn Photography by Yarmouth Maine Newborn Photographer Tiffany Farley, http://tiffanyfarley.comP i n Stratford Connecticut Newborn Photography by Yarmouth Maine Newborn Photographer Tiffany Farley, http://tiffanyfarley.comP i n Stratford Connecticut Newborn Photography by Yarmouth Maine Newborn Photographer Tiffany Farley, http://tiffanyfarley.comP i n Stratford Connecticut Newborn Photography by Yarmouth Maine Newborn Photographer Tiffany Farley, http://tiffanyfarley.comP i n Stratford Connecticut Newborn Photography by Yarmouth Maine Newborn Photographer Tiffany Farley, http://tiffanyfarley.comP i n Stratford Connecticut Newborn Photography by Yarmouth Maine Newborn Photographer Tiffany Farley, http://tiffanyfarley.comP i n Stratford Connecticut Newborn Photography by Yarmouth Maine Newborn Photographer Tiffany Farley, http://tiffanyfarley.comP i n Stratford Connecticut Newborn Photography by Yarmouth Maine Newborn Photographer Tiffany Farley, http://tiffanyfarley.comP i n Stratford Connecticut Newborn Photography by Yarmouth Maine Newborn Photographer Tiffany Farley, http://tiffanyfarley.comP i n Stratford Connecticut Newborn Photography by Yarmouth Maine Newborn Photographer Tiffany Farley, http://tiffanyfarley.comP i n Stratford Connecticut Newborn Photography by Yarmouth Maine Newborn Photographer Tiffany Farley, http://tiffanyfarley.comP i n Stratford Connecticut Newborn Photography by Yarmouth Maine Newborn Photographer Tiffany Farley, http://tiffanyfarley.comP i n Stratford Connecticut Newborn Photography by Yarmouth Maine Newborn Photographer Tiffany Farley, http://tiffanyfarley.comP i n Stratford Connecticut Newborn Photography by Yarmouth Maine Newborn Photographer Tiffany Farley, http://tiffanyfarley.comP i n Stratford Connecticut Newborn Photography by Yarmouth Maine Newborn Photographer Tiffany Farley, http://tiffanyfarley.comP i n Stratford Connecticut Newborn Photography by Yarmouth Maine Newborn Photographer Tiffany Farley, http://tiffanyfarley.comP i n

Photographing the Bemis family is always incredibly meaningful to me. Not only have I known them as close friends for well over a decade, but Cassy was one of the first official “models” to ever let me practice my photography with years ago. She met me at a freezing Madison, Connecticut beach one February morning and let me practice posing, settings, and the confidence to get behind the camera and create- in fact those images were the very first I ever pulled into photoshop to learn the layout. She encouraged me tirelessly to start a business and to charge for my work. I still remember those conversations as we would drive in the car, and quite honestly she has never stopped speaking life into my dreams since then.

Their daughter turned two at the end of the summer, and we wanted to celebrate with portraits on the beautiful coast of Kennebunkport, Maine. The evening light was the perfect New England blue, and the wet sand lit up with shades of pink and purple. The water was warm, and as most two year olds, she made me work for every shot, chasing her into the waves for the chance of a perfect frame, as I carefully tried to keep all my cameras from sloshing in the salty current.

I photographed this session with both my digital camera, as well as my Hasselblad medium format film camera, which captured black and white images with that dreamy film grain. I find myself preferring the imperfect grain of film over the smooth digital look more often than not. There’s something more authentic about it to me, something more real. Like we were actually there in the moment. As a Maine photographer, I savor these evening sessions on the beach, for soon the snow will come and the wind will be too cold to bare. But for now we savor the warm coastal nights, and I photograph on the beach as often as possible.
