To those of you who have been with me for awhile, it likely doesn’t feel like a surprise that Cuppa is heading for a big transition in the next 6 months!

I began this company while I was in my last year of law school nearly a decade ago and it has been a labor of absolute love and devotion. I poured my heart into Cuppa and feel so lucky to have spent ten years being invited into my clients lives. I’ve loved every minute.

Since selling our home and hitting the road nearly two years ago (whaaaaat?!?!?!), I simply haven’t been quite sure what to do with Cuppa, how to transition it into something more mobile, how to align it with what has become my primary brand. I’ve flipped and flopped, reluctant to let go of something that I spent so long building.

But it’s time to move forward, and I’ve decided to shift my portrait and wedding work to their own sites under the larger umbrella of Cindy Giovagnoli, which will continue to focus on my editorial and travel work as well as the writing, copyediting, and personal coaching that is increasingly making up my livelihood.

So look for Cindy Giovagnoli Portraits and Cindy Giovagnoli Weddings to launch at the beginning of 2019- I can’t wait to share them with you.

In the meantime, feel free to reach out if you are interested in booking a session or talking about your wedding! I can always be reached at staycurious@cindygiovagnoli.com (Please note that the old cindy@cuppaphotography address no longer reaches me!).

If you’ve been following along on my other blog or on Instagram, you know that I recently returned from shooting a phenomenal running and yoga retreat in Ireland! The retreat was put on by our very own Freeport Yoga Company and Running on Insight and was hosted by the breathtaking Cliffs of Moher Retreat center in County Clare, Ireland. There was something extra special about seeing some familiar Maine faces across the pond and I’m looking forward to sharing more of the experience soon!

But first…

Lucy opted to do a portrait session while were in Ireland and we had an absolute BALL running around soaking up the stunning Irish scenery! Lucy was game for anything, from snuggling sweet donkey noses to climbing around old ramshackle cow byres to braving the chilly wind sweeping off the North Atlantic by the Cliffs of Moher. So. Much. FUN.

Without further ado…Lucy in Ireland!

Thank you so much, Lucy!!!! Have so much fun in these last weeks of high school and best of luck as you head out to college and the world beyond!!

I met Alicia a few years ago when she was a bridesmaid in Margaux and Amardeep’s wedding (remember their gorgeous Sangeet?) and was just delighted when she contacted me about doing some photos of her precious family! We had BEYOND a good time at Wolfe’s Neck State Park…between her patient, curious, sweet-natured baby girl and her rambunctious and hilarious little boy, I couldn’t have asked for a more fun family to spend the afternoon with! Seriously, these guys are just plain awesome.

The Thomas family, y’all!

Have a lovely New Year’s everyone and I look forward to seeing you in 2016 (lots of changes in the works! Yay!)!

One of the best parts of my job is getting to watch a family take shape over the years! You may remember Danielle and Jason’s gorgeous fall wedding in Bethel a few years ago, or maybe last year’s newborn session after their family grew to include their son. This fall we got together to document another year, this time in their brand new home!

Thank you so much, you guys! You’re awesome!!

I came to know Ali and Cesar when they hired me to shoot their wedding way back in 2010! You may remember it (or it’s feature on Style Me Pretty) or perhaps their super fun engagement session in their hometown of Ottawa, Canada. But sometimes clients cross over into becoming wonderful friends and it’s hard to imagine not knowing these guys now! Ali and I have traveled to Haiti together and I’ve watched as their little family of two (well three, really…their awesome pup, Samba, is totally a member of the family!) grew to include it’s newest member, Theo! So it was more fun than you can imagine to spend the day with them (as well as all the grandparents and Cesar’s sister!) shooting their family portraits while they were on holiday in Biddeford Pool! I seriously love this family so much…
