* Baby Cooper


With a great workflow in place and two fantastically reliable employees at the studio, Tuesdays are now officially my day to get out of the office and photograph. This week, I spent some time with darling 6 month old baby Cooper, my favorite age to photograph wee ones. His adorable nursery was designed by my interior designer Tracy Davis of Urban Dwellings. Love!

Not too happy about nudie photos. :(

He wasn't too sure about the sled at first.

Precious, right? Can't get enough of those cheeks! Can't wait to photograph this little peanut again soon!

Amy and Chris met through mutual friends, and the very next day after that first introduction she was telling her close friends and family he would be the one she would marry.

She was right.

He proposed while out on a walk at the ocean, and they married nearby at her childhood church in Camden in, well, a blizzard. Always wanting a winter wedding, these two treated more than 250 guests to a winter wonderland in Camden just after the new year. And when I say treat, I mean treat! The day had such a warm, rich romance to it. There was fantastic live music, poetry, delicious food, two (!) wedding cakes, photo booths and even fireworks!!

Just back from their honeymoon, the newlyweds came by the studio this afternoon to view their wedding images on our new big screen. Watching them see their images for the first time was a rare, raw experience- and one that I have only once experienced since most of our couples are not local- and simply put, it made my heart smile. Afterwards, with Morgan filming, I asked them a series of questions about their relationship and their wedding day, which he will incorporate into the multimedia piece he is assembling from their wedding. It was a totally sweet 'When Harry Met Sally' dialogue that I can't wait to show you soon!

And a few favorites from Maine's Snapshot Studio.

Happy congratulations, Amy and Chris! Already looking forward to an album consultation so we can see each other again! xo

company cocktails


The first three weeks of the new year have been a whirlwind! Aside from actually opening the studio, I can't recall a more action-packed period where despite extra long work days I can't wipe this silly smile from my face! Having a full house (or nearly- did you know we're hiring again?) has been such an exciting, busy blessing and we've made some fantastic changes and upgrades at the studio already.

We postponed holiday drinks last month awaiting videographer Morgan's move from Thomaston to Portland this month. All settled in and with everyone actually in town at one time (J has traveled recently to Nashville and San Francisco for liveBooks, and Whitney is working for the season at Sugarloaf but comes home once a week to play in an indoor soccer league), we met up at cozy cool Local 188 for company cocktails and yummy eats.

Having everyone around the table chatting and laughing, swapping stories and catching up, it reminded me a bit of Thanksgiving. Appropriate as, boy, do I certainly feel grateful!!

L to R: videographer Morgan, studio manager Erin, associate photographer Whitney, designer Christina and associate photographer (and hubby!) J.
