Ryan + Norah | Bar Harbor Engagement Session

Winter as a photographer can be a pretty lonely time. We go from running around all summer long, to sitting at home working on boring stuff like taxes. This is why it makes me pumped when people are willing to venture out for winter engagement sessions. Yes, its freezing, but it’s worth it. Ryan and […]

Brady + Niki | Samoset Resort Rockport Maine

Brady and Niki braved a cold, January day on the coast for a super fun session. We met up before their wedding reception at the Samoset Resort in Rockport Maine and explored the hotel, as well as the Rockland Breakwater right next door. Despite the 15 degree weather, they were awesome – even when I […]

Sometimes an idea pops into your head and you just have to go for it! This was the exact situation I found myself in one evening, knowing I had a free morning coming up and a fun idea in mind. An early morning sunrise photo shoot? Let’s go for it! After asking for volunteers on […]

From their proposal to their gender reveal and everything else in between, I have had the privilege to document some of the most special moments in their lives.

Chris & Renee | Testimonial

We absolutely loved working with Melissa from beginning to end! She was very professional and made us feel so at ease during our engagement photos and was fantastic during our wedding capturing every detail. We are in LOVE with the final results. We were married on a frigid (-5° and she was still game to […]

Oh my goodness, it feels like I have been waiting YEARS for this blog post to finally be written! I met Chris and Renee when the three of us worked together at our local grocery store, back in the day. In fact, I even remember the workplace excitement when they FINALLY started dating! Having watched their […]

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 […]

Dog Days: The Spring Snow

This is the start of a new series on the blog! I got the idea after listening to Katelyn James speak at the Maine Professional Photographers Conference in Portland, Maine a few weeks ago. There is no way you can listen to her talk about blogging for three hours and NOT get inspired to try […]
