I met up with Ceili a few weeks ago to shoot her senior portraits down at Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth! Ceili is, well, pretty much just amazing. She’s smart, open, super friendly, obviously gorgeous, and INSANELY talented. Don’t believe me? Feel free to listen to even 30 seconds of any of the videos on her You Tube channel and you’ll be convinced instantly, guaranteed! Seriously…she’s awesome. Go check out her work right now.

Now that you have her incredible music playing in the background, feel free to scroll on down! Ceili Spaulding, my friends!

    Thanks for your photographic artistry. Ceili is my most beautiful, intelligent, talented, and loving grand-daughter! Awesome is an understatement! If I was destined to have only one, I have been truly blessed. I couldn’t be more proud.ReplyCancel

India. Oh India.

It was utterly crazy and completely incredible. Overwhelming and intense in some moments, connected and inspiring in others.

We sat around at Gurudwara Bangla Sahib and talked politics with a Sikh leader and chatted with a group of middle school girls eager to practice their English with Americans. We came within feet of the Dalai Lama and felt the power of his compassion wash over the crowd of people awaiting his teaching. We met amazing person after amazing person.

I absolutely loved it.

I know many of you are eagerly awaiting photos from me and I promise that I am ON it. I am back in my office and plugging away at the pages-long to-do list that I left behind. But I ask your patience just a little longer and feel compelled to just put it out there that emailing me six times a day will not, in fact, speed up my process. Well intentioned, I know, but still not particularly helpful. Deep breaths…your photos are coming! And I am as eager as you are to share them with you!

Thank you for being patient!!

Hello there!! I will be out of my office hiking around in northern India {away from my computer and internet and email and phone calls and social media} for the better part of the next two weeks! I will be back to work on Monday, September 29!

I beg your patience until I return and look forward to talking with you then!!

Sarah and Paul are two of my favorite people. Period. They are just really, really awesome people! Deeply kind and warm and giving without being saccharine or insincere. Concerned and involved without losing their sense of humor. They take people and the world and it’s issues very seriously, but they don’t take themselves too seriously. Quick, smart wit and easy, welcoming smiles are among the first things I think of when I imagine these two! The only thing better than talking with one of them is talking with both of them! There is more than just love at work here (and I assure you that there is tons of that!)…there is an obvious and deep respect and affection and simple true liking between Sarah and Paul- they clearly very much enjoy one another.

I could go on and on, but I’ll bet you are ready for some photos, eh?

Meet Dempsey Challenge Team Cuppa member, Sarah!!! Sarah was one of the very first people to join our team this year and I am so excited to have her on board! She has such a generous and giving heart…last year she raised money for cancer research through Tri For a Cure, completing a triathlon while she was at it! This year we’ve recruited her to work that hard for the Dempsey Center and wanted to share her words about why she joined us {bear with me as I blush just a little bit, but these are Sarah’s words!}:

I was inspired to be a part of The Dempsey Challenge by the captain of Team Cuppa, Cindy Giovignoli! I wanted to be a part of her team & help a cause that is near and dear to so many. I met Cindy a couple years ago, and right away I sensed this awesomeness to her. As I got to know her better, I have learned much about her past and all that she has overcome. She is a thriving survivor who does so with great ease! I really want my daughter, Danica to see that helping others and doing something good and healthy for yourself is a win-win. Danica inspires me to be a better example in life!
