I met up recently with Chantelle and Shay for their engagement session in Portland! I was so excited when they decided to bring their dog, Rocco, along for the session and I had all I could do to not spend the entirety of our time together snuggling this sweet boy! We wandered the Old Port before heading over to Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth and it was just so much fun to get to know this little family a little bit along the way! Without further ado…Chantelle & Shay (and Rocco, of course!)!

Elizabeth and Kevin were married on Martha’s Vineyard this weekend and it could simply not possibly have been a lovelier event. True magic happens when you blend genuinely wonderful, loving, supportive families, amazing friends, a breathtaking island, perfect weather, and a couple who are deeply in love and fantastically kind. Here is a tiny peek!!

Wedding season is officially underway! Woo hoo! While we actually kicked off our season back in February with Melissa & Ryan’s cozy shindig, Sam and Jason mark the beginning of our summer season and it couldn’t have begun any better! A venue I love working with, stunning weather, a fantastic couple, and to top it all off, Sam & Jason had their 5 month old puppy as their ring bearer!

I could go on and on, but instead I will get down to it…

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!

I have the best clients. Like EVER. Clients who are game for anything, totally open and understanding, and, you know, FUN! I feel like I’m always pretty aware of this fact, but sometimes there are clients who really drive home how very lucky I am! Danielle and Raju totally fall into this category!

To begin with, they call the sunshine-filled state of Florida home, but took their one week of spring break (Danielle is a teacher!) and left their beautiful weather behind to come up to Maine in the unpredictable month of March to do their engagement session! And true to the real madness that is March weather here, they were met with freezing rain and no sign of life yet emerging from our frozen ground. On top of their humor and awesomeness with the weather, they were totally flexible with me as I was knocked flat by a nasty flu the day before we were scheduled to shoot (I seriously get sick like that approximately once every 10-15 years…the last time was sometime around 2002!) and they rearranged their schedule to give me a few days to recover before we met up. Did I mention that they are awesome? Just checking.

We met at Fort Williams Park for their session during a break in the freezing rain and despite the raw weather, these two were all laughter and love and utter coolness! High-school sweethearts who have supported each other through years of education and job searching and life’s transitions, they absolutely radiate teamwork. And humor…they laugh SO much, which is just my favorite thing EVER, and we totally ended up having a ball!

Without further ado, some of my favorites from Danielle and Raju’s Portland Head Light engagement session!
