callie is one! │ bangor maine first birthday cake smash photography

Monday, April 14th, 2014

I had so much fun with this little peanut. She has such a vibrant personality for only being 1 year old… I totally hope I get to see her again when she is talking in full sentences! Here’s a sneak peek of some favorite shots from Callie’s cake smash!

I always start with some shots outside, but to say it was cold that day is an understatement, so we did some indoor shots of the birthday girl as well. Then it was time to smash some cake! And yes, Callie was a professional smasher. :) Also, can I just say how badly I wished her little red peacoat came in my size? Love.

I loved every second of this session! Thanks so much mom and dad for driving 1.5 hours to share your birthday girl with me! Special shout out to Wendy from Queen City Cakes for another yummy cake! Clearly, it was enjoyed. :)


anne, josh + olivia │ orrington maine lifestyle family photography

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

With another blizzard welcoming it’s way into Maine this evening, I thought I would share a session that literally took place in the middle of a blizzard right before the holidays! When Anne asked me to do her family photos at a christmas tree farm, I was instantly excited. Adorable family, christmas trees, snow… perfection! At the same time, I was instantly nervous. Photographing another photographer (yes, I’m talking about the Anne behind Anne Schmidt Photography – fabulous work, check her out!) is always a bit daunting, especially when it’s blowing around snow and the wind chill is below zero. Add in an almost 3 year old, and you’ve got a lot of challenges rolled into one! But when all was said and done, their session turned out to be one of my favorites of 2013. We had a great time with loads of laughs, even more warm car breaks, and plenty of donuts for the little one. :) Here are some of my favorite images!

Thank you, Anne and Josh, for having me capture your darling little family last year, and for being such troopers in the wintery conditions! I hope you all stay warm (and inside) during this blizzard! ;)


sarah + cory │ brewer and ellsworth maine wedding photography

Monday, October 28th, 2013

I had been looking forward to photographing Sarah and Cory’s wedding for almost two years! And let me just say, their big day didn’t disappoint. There was so much love, laughter, and best of all… LOADS of dancing. It was perfect. Here is their wedding story!

After Sarah, her mom, and her maid of honor Cortney got their hair done at Fusion HT in Orrington, they headed over to Brewer to enjoy some Bagel Central bagels (THE BEST, right?!) and get ready for the rest of the day’s festivities.

Sarah and Cory chose not to see each other before the ceremony, so Cory was anxiously awaiting for the ceremony to start and to see his beautiful bride walking down the aisle.

After the ceremony, everyone headed to Camp Jordan in Ellsworth to celebrate. The clouds rolled in, and it was a tad windy on the water, but we lucked out with no rain!

Next, it was time to party. And when I say party… I mean it. I was told to bring my dancing shoes to this wedding, and now I know why! A few highlights of the night included: Cory belting out their first dance song, Sarah singing a surprise song to Cory, ruler suspenders (for those who don’t know, Cory owns Stitham’s Custom Homes and is a fabulous contractor, so these were perfect), blow-up air guitars, and some killer dance moves. The thing I loved most about the reception, however, was that Sarah and Cory DANCED! Every wedding I shoot/attend, I notice that the bride and groom rarely take time during their reception to let loose and dance with each other. But these two danced the night away, and it sure did make for some stellar reception photos. :)

Mr. + Mrs. Stitham: you sure know how to put on an amazing party. :) Congratulations to you both, and thank you for trusting me to capture all the moments of your big day. It was a blast!
