1,000 Thank yous

1,000 of anything is a large amount. 1,000 homes, 1,000 cars, 1,000 elephants. Even smaller still, 1,000 M&M’s could seem insurmountable (however my 3 and a half year-old would decidely be up for the challenge.) So 1,000 LIKES on Facebook is a pretty neat thing. Those are quite a few people who have decided that...

Sneak Peek: Lindsay & George at John Peters Estate

Few peeks at the wedding that ended my month of July. Here is Lindsay and George at the beautiful John Peters Estate in Blue Hill on what was the perfect summer day in Maine. Their nautical details were the perfect reflection of Georges career in the boating world and Lindsay’s Maine roots. More to come...

Pi Day

Yesterday was Pi Day. Yes. A day where we Americans celebrate mathematics and that famous never ending number that is 3.14159….well, you know. And in true American fashion, we honor this day by eating, well, pie! So we took the opportunity to celebrate math and family and enjoyed an evening out where we filled our...

Standing out in a crowd

There are a lot of wedding photographers in Maine….a lot. So for couples who are diligently searching for one, the task can sometimes feel daunting. After a while everyone’s work can start to look very similar if there is no story to back it up. I learned this recently and it is why I have...

On perspective and birthdays

Birthdays. They have taken on a whole new meaning for me now that I am a parent and have actually birthed a child. Tomorrow is my 32nd birthday and, honestly, I’m caring more about the fact that my daughter will be two years old at the end of the month. Where has the time gone?...

Emerging Women Leaders in Maine

Recently, I was informed by the folks at Current Publishing, the people that produce the free print and web magazine Maine Women, that I had been nominated to be featured in their October issue about emerging leaders under 35 in the state of Maine. I was, to say the least, shocked. And even though I...

Something Special Sundays: volume 4

It seems like there has been a lot of celebrating going on in my life lately. Cue Madonna! ;-) New career….my wedding anniversary….and this weekend was my mother’s birthday. And I feel very blessed to be able to do all this celebrating with the ones I love. So I’m going to keep this very short...

Journey to Self-Employment & A Girls Day Out

It has officially been one week since I said “So long!” to the “day job” and began this journey as my own boss, a full time wedding photographer. Everything about this decision is such a wonderful feeling and, honestly, I haven’t been this happy in a long time. And there lies the reason why I...

Something Special Sundays: volume 3

It’s late Sunday evening with just a few minutes to squeak in today’s post. With no wedding on the books this weekend, it was off to our family camp to enjoy the peace and quiet of the lake and spend time with loved ones. So i’m going to keep this one pretty brief and get...

Something Special Sundays: volume 2

Happy Sunday everyone and welcome back! If this is your first read of “Something Special” the format is pretty basic. I’ve chosen to write a personal post, non wedding related, every Sunday about a topic that’s important to me.  Got it?  Good. This week my family got a great treat from some extended relatives. My...

Something Special Sundays: volume I

It has been my goal for a while (and it will continue to be once I transition into full time photographer) to take more personal photos. To do more work that’s just for me. And I’ve wanted, for a very long time now, to have a regular blog series where I share more of my...

Sunglasses for a cause

I’ve known about Toms for quite a while. I’m pretty sure it was one of those USA Network “Character of the Month” commercials when I first learned of the company years ago. The companies owner Blake was profiled for his work in developing countries. The premise was simple. You buy a pair of Toms shoes...

the 4th of July…these are a few of my favorite things

The 4th of July. An important day in American history. Everyone has their own holiday traditions, whether they’re going “upta camp” as we say in Maine, or spending the day at the beach, grilling burgers with family, watching fireworks displays….July 4th is time to be with the ones we love and to celebrate the freedoms...

6 weeks of baby Olivia

For those of you that didn’t know…..on March 30th the most wonderful thing happened…I became a mother.  Olivia Henri came into our life just as the sun was rising over the Penobscot River. Like most photographer parents I was of the mindset that I would be taking photos of her ALL THE TIME and that...

L Factor A Paul Mitchell Salon Hair Show

Last weekend was the annual L Factor A Paul Mitchell Salon Hair Show.  If you are not familiar with the L Factor in Brewer, you should be!  Co-owners Gina and Jodi run one of the best salons in the Queen Cities!  This year’s hair show not only took it to a whole new level with...

Wedding Promotion for 2011

Happy March 1st!  Ok….so it’s not the first day of Spring.  There’s really nothing special to celebrate, and let’s face it it’s pretty hard to even think Spring with all the lingering snow on the ground that doesn’t seem to want to go away.  Mother nature has certainly given us her all this season. BUT….it’s...

A Website Makeover!!

I am so excited to finally be able to announce to the world the launch of the new anne schmidt photography blogsite!  It’s the best of a blog and website all wrapped up into one perfect, little tangerine and raspberry package.  (it’s not pink and orange!)  :-)  So here it is in all its glory……well….almost....

Four months old

Abby is four months old this month! I shot her newborn photos at two weeks old and her parents had me back last weekend to capture this playful, little peanut. This is a very interesting and difficult age to shoot because they are not sleeping newborns anymore that just lay there, but they’re also not...
