Kali and Billy’s wedding took place at The Lucerne Inn, in Dedham, Maine. It was a beautiful and clear spring day. We couldn’t have asked for better weather. This wedding was so special to me and made me appreciate what I do even more than ever. Kali is originally from Nebraska and Billy from here in Maine, although they currently live together in Minnesota. They met while in college at Gallaudet University for the education of the deaf and hard of hearing. It was an amazing experience for me to work in an environment where there was a communication barrier. When Kali asked me where we could do a “first look,” I knew sunset rock would be the perfect place. When Kali saw it for the first time her face said it all-I knew she loved it! There was such a genuine group of people at the wedding. Everyone was so kind and easy to work with, from the guests to Lucerne Inn staff to the videographers (Chris and Thomas you guys rock)-I couldn’t have asked for a better day to start off this wedding season! Thank you Kali and Billy so much for letting us be a part of your day!
This engagement shoot for Jasmine and Elias took place in Acadia National Park. I knew this was going to be a fun and easy session since I have known Jasmine for a long time now. We worked at a restaurant together years ago, and one of the first weddings I ever shot was her mothers! Jasmine and I have hiked together before, so I knew she would be up for a short hike to get photos on top of a mountain! Thank you both so much I can’t wait for your wedding in September!
Shannon is a highly motivated fitness Instructor at TULA studios in South Portland, Maine! You should also follow her on Instagram (@Irelandsdesign). She coaches fitness challenges, one of which I am currently participating in right now, and I love it! Thank you Shannon for helping me push myself through the fitness program and for the encouragement with photography! You are a great friend and I am so happy with your journey!
Kayla and Mitchell are one of the coolest couples I have photographed, since Kayla had the neat idea to go Ice Fishing for their session! I haven’t been Ice fishing since I was a kid, so I was super excited to go! I met them at Maces Pond and Kayla came to shore to pick me up on their Snowmobile. Once we were at the spot, Mitchell dug some fresh holes and set up the flags. Ice Fishing is definitely a waiting game, but with a little patience we finally caught one! Its hard to get outside sometimes in the freezing, snowy winter months in Maine, but Ice Fishing is a very peaceful activity and it feels great to be out on the Ice. We even saw an Osprey flying around looking for discarded fish! Thanks guys for taking me along, I hope we go again!
Carmen is a bada** woman! This day was probably the coldest day, but she toughed it out and killed it with her yoga moves! I would really love to do more sessions like this guys! Thank you Carmen, as always for an awesome time!
Sarah and Michael’s session was very windy and chilly being on the coast, but these guys were troopers and killed it! I loved how natural they were in front of the camera! Sarah is also a photographer so we snapped some shots of her with her camera. Thanks guys for an awesome shoot, I loved meeting you both!
Gabby and Zach’s session was a perfect winter morning with some sunshine- a photographers dream to shoot in. They were so cute and loving and then of course their puppers were such pretty dogs. What a wonderful day! Thanks guys! Can’t wait for your wedding in June!
Little baby Landon! I don’t normally do newborn photos but when Taniele asked me I had to! I am so, so thankful for her and her family for all the shoots we have done together! She always makes my job so easy with all her props and cute outfits she has ready. I can not wait for future shoots with little Landon and the whole family! Thank you as always guys!
I met up with Shannon, Jordan and their daughter Nora on a cold winter morning but it didn’t slow us down! I loved seeing the happiness between them and Nora’s cute little faces. I’ve known Shannon for a long time- from playing hoops when we were kids to being friends throughout our school days. We had some great times in high school and she always knew how to make me laugh! Having known Shannon for so long and seeing her so happy with her little family now makes me feel very fortunate to be able to capture these moments! Thanks guys for a wonderful session!
It’s about time I got these two in front of the camera! I wanted to do a lifestyle session with these guys not only to display Corey’s cooking skills but do it in, and show off their new kitchen! It was a fun, laughter-filled morning making yummy pancakes, both chocolate and blueberry, and ending it all with mimosa cheers! Thanks guys for letting me capture all your love and happiness!
Taniele created my dream Holiday session! From lifestyle matching Holiday PJs with all the snuggles in bed to sunset, woodsy, picture outside! Their outfits were perfect! As always guys, thank you so much you made it easy!
Gage, Jenna and Alex were so fun to photograph and easy. I could instantly see the happiness with this group! I loved seeing Alex making Jenna laugh and Gage was so cute and of course, DOGS. Thank you, guys! I am so happy for you!
Julie, Tyler and Madisyn’s family session took place at there home in Hermon, Maine. I had so much fun playing outside with Madisyn, it was a chilly Morning so we thought it would be a wonderful idea to make some hot coco and some Christmas cookies! Madisyn then showed me all her ornaments on the tree! I love see Madisyn grow and to interact with her since I’ve know Julie since we ere five years old! Julie and I grew up together and use to do everything together and Madisyn reminds me so much of Julie! It warmed my heart to do a fun day with them! Merry Christmas guys! Thanks for a wonderful day!
Shannon and Steve’s session was at Wolfe’s neck State park in Freeport, Maine. It was on a beautiful winter evening and the snow was just right! When Shannon and Steve got out of their car with their dogs and L.L.Bean gear I knew this was going to be perfect! Thanks guys for a great session!
Sophia and Gabriel’s engagement session took place in Maudslay State Park in Newburyport, Massachusetts. Sophia Grew up in Newburyport and was very familiar with Maudslay State Park so I was more than happy to make the trip for there shoot! The leaves and weather were perfect! Thank you both for being such a fun couple! Can’t wait for your wedding next summer!
Mackenzie and Travis’s wedding was in Bradenton, Florida. I worked with Mackenzie for a couple years in Bar Harbor, Maine.

Thank you both! I wish you all the happiness!
Kaitlyn and Billy engagement session took place in one of my favorite places on earth- Acadia National Park! Kaitlyn is a dear friend of mine so I was pleased when she asked me to do her and Billy’s engagement photos! The evening started out beautiful and sunny but soon started to rain, then turn into HAUL. Lucky these two are troopers because we all had a great laugh about it and made it more fun! Thank you both so much I CAN NOT WAIT TIL YOUR WEDDING!
