Connor & Deanna // Mackworth Island

Connor & Deanna // Mackworth Island

Connor and Deanna’s engagement shoot reminded me of why I love my job. I get to meet some of the most amazing people and then capture a special moment in their lives. Even while the plan was for a sunset shoot, the weather gave us heavy fog instead. But they were still positive and made the most out of the evening, with or without a sunset.

The Rileys // Coastal Maternity Session

The Rileys // Coastal Maternity Session

Watching Shane and Kelly during their maternity session was the absolute sweetest. I was just meeting them for the first time but I felt like I had known them forever (plus Kelly’s personality and humor were SO relatable to mine, I couldn’t help but laugh at some of our messages back and forth). They were so comfortable together, laughing at themselves and embracing every intimate moment, even when it started to rain. There’s no doubt that they are going to be amazing, loving parents.

Plant-Based Skincare: Does BioClarity Work?

Plant-Based Skincare: Does BioClarity Work?

I’ve struggled with red, blotchy skin since I was just a tween. I even had bad acne through my high school years, which let’s face it, only makes your life more of a challenge. But I was never the kind of girl that would dish out money to buy the latest trend or high-end brands. I was always a skeptic and believed these products never worked, that it was all just paid advertising and hype. So when I saw the reviews about BioClarity, I was curious…

NH Hikes: Mount Willard

NH Hikes: Mount Willard

After taking the Cog Railway up Mount Washington, the next day of our anniversary vacation we decided to visit Crawford Notch and hike Mount Willard. It is a popular 3.2 mile out and back trail that would be moderate for beginners/easy for experienced hikers. The trailhead is located across the train tracks of the railroad depot at AMC Crawford Notch Visitors Center.

Fast-forward to today, she is happily married to her husband John and enjoying life with their pup in Maine, both are passionate about their work and involvement in the community.

Dom & Kyra // Portland Headlight Engagement

Dom & Kyra // Portland Headlight Engagement

I’ve been waiting for this engagement session for a while and was so excited when I finally heard the news. Dom and Kyra are so quirky, funny, and endearing with eachother, it’s hard not to have fun when you are with them. Underneath all the humor and laughs, it’s obvious how much they truly care about the other. I can’t wait to watch them say I do on their wedding day as they encapsulate what it means to marry your best friend. Until then, here are some of my favorites from their engagement shoot at Portland Headlight in Cape Elizabeth, Maine..

Nate & Kate // Sunday River Wedding

Nate & Kate // Sunday River Wedding

After taking Nate & Kate’s engagement pictures the previous year during the fall, I had been waiting [not so] patiently for their wedding. Once meeting them, I was so captivated by how candid and comfortable they were with each other. I know I would be capturing the real them — their raw, authentic selves — and it was beautiful! Their wedding took place at Sunday River in Maine during the peak foliage season. Every detail from that day was uniquely special, from the dress and bouquet to the guests and reception, moments that will last forever.
