Hi! I am a wedding photographer and senior portrait photographer located in central Maine.
As a kid, teen, and adult, I dreamed at one time or another of being a heart surgeon, an actress, a diving coach, a physical education and English teacher, a professor, and an academic advisor. But every single profession I explored didn’t seem quite right for me, and I always felt frustrated that I couldn’t figure out my purpose in life. So, to bide my time I earned a master’s degree in English and wrote academic papers on Gossip Girl, Harry Potter, as well as on other, more classic novels (but let me tell you, that Gossip Girl term paper was awesome. Awesome!)
When I left graduate school and was faced with an economy that didn’t particularly appreciate individuals with master’s degrees in English, I felt let down but also free to explore other opportunities and interests. So, I began delving more into photography, which had always been a hobby, and realized that I kind of loved shooting portraits. And, with this newfound free time, I figured I might as well do something I love and attempt to create a business out of this passion.
I haven’t looked back since, and I’m happy as a clam! But since I don’t quite believe that clams can be happy, let’s say I’m happy as a dog, because we all know dogs are permanently cheerful and sometimes slightly manic in how they display their glee.
This is my story. Let me help you tell yours. Headshot by Sweet Life Memories Photography
