cape elizabeth engagement photographer | a dog, a sunset and a whole lotta love at kettle cove

I could photograph engagement sessions all day long.  Really I could.  I love working with couples whose love for each other knows no bounds, and whose connection is so very strong with the anticipation of starting their future together.  It’s always fun, it’s always special, and it’s always — always — so meaningful.  It’s an honor to share this special time with these newly engaged couples. That they put their trust in me to document their very own magic is so thrilling to me!  I am always humbled.

This sweet, lovely couple’s session was no different.  The bride-to-be is from the midwest and wanted the session to convey all that Maine has to offer so that the folks back home could get a feel for where she lives now.  We had a hard time deciding where to do the session because there are so many beautiful options!  (Oh, and did I already say how lucky we are who live in Maine for that very reason?)  So this session is actually a three-location session.  Our first stop was behind a lovely little church in Scarborough where we knew there would be some spectacular foliage.

I mean, how handsome is this couple???  Next, we moved on down the road to Kettle Cove in Cape Elizabeth for another Maine experience.  This beautiful spot has it all — woods, ocean, sand, and a rocky shore ….

At the end of the session, we were in the perfect spot for a killer sunset.  It was a wonderful way to end the evening.

Maine wedding & lifestyle photographer

Starting over again … or, if you build it, they will come.

I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching over the past several months in both my personal daily living and my professional photography business.  I’ll save my personal tidbits for another time.  Right now, I’m thrilled to share with you where I’m taking my photography business and why.

First, let me tell you that I love … I mean really LOVE … going through life with a camera in my hand.  It allows me to step back and truly watch what goes on around me.  People, animals, events, nature — I find them all fascinating, and I’m thankful that I have a way of capturing the moments as they unfold in a way that tells the underlying story. This thrills me!

So while my business has always been a business that I love, I’ve decided to hone in on what speaks to me and focus on what truly feeds my soul, and know that this will make my business a very happy business for me and make for very happy client experiences for you.

I know this is cliche.  I know it but I just can’t help it … I love love.  There — I said it.  And happiness.  And fun.  And emotions.  And affection.  (And hugs … oh, I love hugs!)  And then I go back to love.  So I will be focusing on all that and especially the connections between people — including couples, siblings, friends, family, parent/child — you know … people who share, people who connect and people who love.  Melts my heart…..

Weddings

For me, this means small intimate gatherings that can include elopements, vow renewals, engagement sessions, proposals, small weddings, fun little gatherings and intimate celebrations.  My perfect couple wants to share their experience with those who are closest to them, and they adore the relationships with the people they love the most.  Click here to see more about my wedding packages.
