Port City Music Hall Wedding: Sara & Rob


Happy St. Paddy’s Day to you all! I thought I would celebrate this festive holiday by sharing one rockin’ wedding with you all. Sara and Rob were married at the beginning of the month in front of their friends and family at a lovely church service followed by a private dinner for family, and finishing off the night with one of the most energetic and colorful receptions I have ever seen. Sara and Rob are the best kind of people you would ever want to work with. They are kind, warm, fun and know how to throw a rockin’ party! And their families are just as wonderful. Sara’s father gave one of the most touching toasts I’ve heard and, man, can the two of them cut it on the dance floor! I knew when I met these two for beers at a pub in Portsmouth this winter that they were “my people”, and it’s fair to say that they are people who I hope to stay friends with for years to come. Sara and Rob, your wedding was nothing less than awesome. Thank you for the dancing, the sweaty hugs and the donuts….oh, the donuts! If anyone could get away with having donuts instead of cake, it was definitely you two. Love you guys!

Summer Camp Weddings in Maine


This post has been a LONG time coming….like really long. I worked with an amazing team of vendors last summer on this fantastic shoot and I’m delighted to share it with you now. We put together two different looks to showcase how one lakeside venue could be styled two different ways and it shows off everything we love about Maine summer camps. And what doesn’t get more peaceful then being by a lake in Maine in the summer?

So why the delay in getting it on the blog? Well, a few reasons. One, I was fortunate to have this inspiration shoot featured in two publications last year (here and here)and wanted those folks to have first crack at it. Second, I wanted to wait until my new website was done to feature these fabulous photos. The new site is done…so BAM! Here were are!

So, here it is. We’re all freezing and I can’t even begin to express how over winter I am right now. I long for the days of sitting by the lake with my beach chair and a cocktail. So if you’re in need of some sunshine as much as I am, I hope these images can hold you over until mother nature decides to buck up and warm up.

Cheers!

Lifestyle family portraits: The Hathaway Family


This fall I got to spend my second session with this wonderful family. I first met them at their home after the birth of their first son two years ago, and now they have welcomed a sister the family! We hung out on a rainy afternoon for some play time, good books and family snuggles. Thanks Deanna and Rick for having me back! It’s so wonderful to see your family grow.
