These two are so happy. And they are so in love. It just radiates when they are around each other. I did Monica and Jason’s engagement photos earlier this year, and we had a blast doing those so I knew their wedding day was going to be 10x as fun! I was right. :) We lucked out with a gorgeous summer day and everything flowed flawlessly. What more can you ask for?! My amazing second shooter Kristin from Sweet Life Memories Photography and I started off the day off at the Hampton Inn in Bangor with Monica and her girls, then headed over to Peakes Hill Lodge for the remainder of the day. I loved watching these two become Mr. and Mrs. Karam while surrounded by their loving family and friends! Here’s a sneak peek at their wedding story!

How beautiful is she?! That smile didn’t leave her face from this point on. :)

Monica and Jason decided to do a “first look” prior to their ceremony, and it was priceless to see how ecstatic these two were to see each other for the first time that day. I adore first looks! It’s so lovely to see both of them relax and spend a few special moments alone together before the rest of the wedding day activities commenced.

Jason arrived to the ceremony site in style in their VW Westy, so I suggested that we incorporate that into a few photos. The entire wedding party got in on it!

Then it was time to get these two married!

Now, time to celebrate!

Monica + Jason: thank you so incredibly much for letting me document and share your special day with you. I adore you both. xoxo.

devan + dustin │ bangor maine couples portrait photographer

I can’t really explain how thankful I am to have such wonderful clients/friends who have stuck with me since the veryyy beginning of this business adventure. This was Devan and Dustin’s third session with me, and I think it was my favorite one yet. These two are incredibly perfect for each other. :) I met them at their home in the country, and the scenery was absolutely gorgeous. Not only did we luck out with some yummy sunlight, blue skies, and perfect October foliage, but Dustin was selling his truck at the time, so they asked me if we could incorporate it into some photos! The answer was YES. I love meaningful, giant props!

Here are a few of my session favorites!

How cute are they? Thank you Devan and Dustin for not only trekking through all that mud and really tall grass with me, but for picking me to photograph you two. It means the world to me! I hope you had as much fun as I had. :)


summer, sunsets & family.

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

Taking you all back to warmth, sunshine, and longer days with this blog post! Every summer, I go visit both sides of my family in upstate New York, and every summer I get the honor to photograph a bunch of my favorite kiddos. My extended family shares a cottage right on Lake Ontario — it has always been (and always will be) my favorite place. So many cousins, aunts, and uncles, too much swimming, lots of craziness, lots of relaxing, and plenty of card games. One of my favorite things about this place? The sunsets. I’m pretty sure part of my interest for photography was sparked by these sunsets. My aunt takes beautiful photos and when we were growing up she always took THE best silhouette photos of us kids. And still, when the sun starts to set, much of my family trickles out to photograph and observe the colorful sky. I feel like it’s kind of a tradition. I love traditions.

Anyway, photographing these sweet kiddos is usually a fairly crazy, whirlwind event… we are all in vacation mode, everyone is tuckered out from playing/swimming all day, AND to top it all off, I make them wait until the “golden hour” to do the photos (aka right before bedtime) because the light is amazing. Sounds evil I know. ;) But regardless of all those factors and possible recipes for disaster, these photos ALWAYS turn out to be some of my favorite photos of the year. And these kids are always so well behaved. Love my family. And yes, I love summer. Is it July yet?

First up, Kayla and Kaden! I’m calling it now, Kayla is going to be a future photographer. She LOVES cameras. It takes a lot of work to get some real smiles out of this sweet pea, but this year we had a special deal… if she gave me real smiles, she could use my back up camera to photograph her little brother! It worked out well. Can’t wait until I can actually hire her to be my assistant someday. :) Here are some of my personal favorites from our mini-session!

Next up: Morgan and Brady Caitlin. These girls make my “job” so easy! Morgan is such a sweet, loving little lady, and she’s a great big sister to her slightly more wild little sister. For real, Brady Cait is a little spit-fire. My favorite. :) Together, they make the cutest set of sisters ever.

Last up: Kaleb and Drew. Probably my two toughest subjects to photograph (even with an ice cream bribe). Don’t get me wrong, I get it… obviously throwing rocks in a dried up creek is wayyy cooler than listening to me make super corny jokes, right? Boys will be boys. :) But they are seriously some of the sweetest boys I know.

PHEW, aaaaand that’s a wrap! Hope you enjoyed the little peek into my family and what goes down on my summer vacation :) Super anxious for July now! Thanks to all of my awesome cousins for having me capture some summer moments of your sweet little loves.
