Carolyn & Abbey | Boothbay Harbor Portrait Session

A professional word of advice – don’t go to the edge of the Atlantic Ocean in January at 7am.  Photographing when you can’t feel your fingers isn’t fun, even if you do have an adorable couple to work with.Carolyn is one of my closest friends, and after she moved to Oregon earlier in the year, […]

Chance & Captain Cupcake | Equine Portrait Session

After a little break for the holidays, I jumped right back into the swing of things with a portrait session on December 28th! Brianna had e-mailed be before Christmas about setting up a session for her mother, Renee, and her beautiful warmblood/Thoroughbred, Chance. Photographs are such a thoughtful gift that lasts YEARS after the hour […]

Caleb M. | Maine Senior Session

Caleb’s senior photos had been in the works months beforehand! Of course, the original date we picked ended up being an awful rainy day, so we rescheduled for late afternoon a few days later. We caught the tail end of golden hour light and it ended up being perfect timing. These photos are extra special […]

Sarah & D’Artagnan | Maine Equine Photography

Around the same time I held my 500 Facebook Likes giveaway, Sarah was coming back from New Jersey with this beautiful guy! I am convinced D’Artagnan is a real-life unicorn. As someone who browses the CANTER website daily, meeting him did not help with my off-the-track Thoroughbred obsession. It is much easier to work around the […]

Annie & Karisma Kris | Maine Equine Photography

As soon as I got these photos uploaded to my computer and started going through them, I was in love. My entire session with Annie was SO much fun! From the very first time she contacted me, I knew it would be great. They certainly did not disappoint. It was wonderful to spend time photographing these […]

Katelynn & Prince | Maine Equine Photography

My goal with photography is to give people a tangible memory of their relationship with their horse. When Katelynn and I first talked about having a session with her and her horse Prince, I knew her situation was EXACTLY why I do this job. Earlier this month, Katelynn and her veterinarian came to the conclusion […]

Beth & Renny | Maine Equine Photography

There must be some kind of horse gene that runs in my family, because it was definitely passed down to my cousin Beth and I! Some of my first memories involve riding Beth’s horses in New Jersey. Beth has a wonderful Quarter Horse named Renny who she shows both western and english. In May, we […]

The Importance Of Giving Back | Maine Portrait Photographe

In February of this year, I was given the opportunity from my “real” job to do an hour of volunteer work at some kind of local non-profit. It took me a long few weeks to think of just exactly what I wanted to do, but really the answer was obvious. All I had to do was […]
