We were approached by Greely High School in Cumberland to establish an internship program late in the fall, nearly exactly at the same time as we were packing up our office to move to the Old Port. Totally ok, they said, and continued with the process to pair us up with senior Allie, who visits us a few times each week in our Portland office. We love her sweet disposition and her curiosity for all things photography, weddings and business. When she asked us if we had an emilie inc. bumper sticker for her car because "it would be cool," she had our hearts!
Tell us a little about you.
My name is Allie. I am 18. I'm very friendly and shy. I have loved photography since I was little, and singing.
