365 | documenting daily life | maine and new orleans photographer

FebPics … what?

Remember when I said that personal work takes a back seat?  You can click here for a refresher.  And now you’re witnessing just how true that statement is.  Today is July 3, and it is hot and muggy.  Seems like a great time to post my February images, don’t you think?  😉

According to all the moments I’ve captured during February, I’m pretty sure I started in Maine and spent the better part of the month in New Orleans.  We enjoyed our sweet little granddaughters, partied Mardi Gras style with family and friends, started a knitting project went to the beach (that was definitely down south!), and even though the weather was on the chilly side in the Crescent City, it was nowhere near the cold New England was experiencing during the winter.

During this hot hot hot … hot …. spell, you may want to find some air conditioning.  Then take a look at the images that follow.  I recommend reviewing them  s l o w l y  so as to breathe in some of that coolness.  Enjoy!  As always, your feedback is welcome!  🙂

cape elizabeth lifestyle photographer | the happiest witch of the east

Part II of this two part series 🙂 has no flying monkeys, no falling houses, no threats against little dogs and no hourglasses counting the minutes to doom.   And much to my chagrin, no ruby slippers either.

However, in honor of Halloween — the spookiest and chilling holiday — we have the happiest witch of the east, and her name is Kristi!  (If you missed part I, click here for a brief lesson in Wicca — the practice my friend loves and lives.)


I’ve been wanting to do this session with her for quite some time and when the moon and the stars finally aligned (well, actually, when our mutual schedules offered some free time….), we decided that we couldn’t wait any longer!  A little background here …. a few weeks before, while covering the Laudholm Craft Fair for Maine Magazine, I came across the nicest ladies who were hand crafting — wait for it —- BROOMS!!!!  Sweet, beautiful, hand crafted brooms, made by Haydenville Broomworks,  and there was one that was just perfect for our witchy session!!!!  (Housework?  Don’t be silly…..)


Fast forward to early October, and we are at Kettle Cove in Cape Elizabeth.  Having just finished observing and photographing Kristi’s Wicca practices, it was time to have a little fun!  The sun was setting and the full moon was a-rising!  Magic?  Perhaps.  I say bring it!











We should educate people that “Witch” is not evil but ancient and positive.  The first time I called myself a “Witch” was the most magical moment of my life.

–Margot Addler, Wiccan Priestess


Have a spooktacular Halloween! And as Kristi often says … Blessed Be!
