Happy New Year!

A happy NEW YEAR TO YOU! I’ve always been a sap for New Years. I love the chance to reflect on the past and plan for the future. I’m a huge fan of resolutions, goals and yearly-words. 2018 was a year of growth! We were tried and tested in 2018. We dealt with struggles that I never anticipated, but I’m happy to say though that as of 12/31/2018 those trials have come to a close and we are better than ever after the growth they brought.

In 2018 we also had so many celebrations

My business grew exponentially this past year. It was the best year yet for my business and I shot a record number of weddings and sessions for Cassandra Henri Photography. If I wasn’t photographing my own weddings I was second shooting for TDow Photography. Learning from her and the experiences gained from being her assistant was HUGE. She also took these sweet photos of Julian and I in December. I’ll never be able to thank her enough for capturing these pictures for us.

I WENT TO LONDON AND PARIS with two of my best gal friends who also happen to be Maine wedding photographers. An experience that I have millions of photos to go through and put on here soon.

Onto 2019! 2019- we have some PLANS for you. Derek and I will finally celebrate our 10 year union with a wedding! Yes I’ll be on the other side now and I’m very excited to share that journey on here. I’ve learned so much from my couples about the process. It’s made planning so far pretty seamless. In addition to that big personal event I plan to continue to grow professionally with another amazing season lined up and some new projects on the horizon.

SO thank you so much for an amazing 2018. I think often about how I wouldn’t have these new hopes and plans and dreams if I hadn’t been so supported in my initial dream- to be a wedding photographer. I’ll forever me grateful for that! Here’s to 2019. I know it’s gonna be a great one!

I so enjoy taking the “off” season to go back through the summer and fall prior and blog all my amazing sessions and weddings. As 2018 comes to a close it’s the perfect time to go through and reflect. This was my last official session in Acadia National Park and wow did I feel like I went out with a bang. The scenery, colors and lighting meshed so well for my session with Erin and Jake who were in Bar Harbor celebrating an anniversary and a baby on the way! We hit both Jordan Pond and Cadillac Mountain at just the right point in fall foliage. We also hit it on a very high tourist day but found parking effortlessly- and that’s a gift from something else ;) Thank you so much Erin and Jake for having me take these photos. It was so hard to pick my top ones to share here and that’s always a sign of a great session. Here are some of my favorites from our time in Acadia National Park.

OH gosh it's so nice to look back at these summer and fall sessions while I'm sitting on my computer hiding away from the "arctic blast" currently happening outside. This session especially gives me so much warmth when I look back at it. Mary and Jamie contacted a little while before their first family trip to Bar Harbor, Maine. They wanted to take some family photos and some portraits of their daughter Alice! It was Alice's first photo shoot they told me and she did a great job! That is one happy girl and this is one happy and loving family. We met a Jordan Pond one morning in October and while it was super windy these three were such champs and we were able to find some corners of the pond to block the wind. Alice was super curious about everything and we had so much fun making her smile for an hour. Thank you so much Mary, Jamie and Alice for including me in a small part of your visit to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor! I hope you visit again!

I'm really excited to share some favorites from my family session in Acadia National Park with the Mallett family! They contacted me a little while before their trip to Bar Harbor to set up a time for family photos. They just recently grew in size with little Hank who smiled quite a bit for us. This clan knows the area well and knew exactly where they wanted to shoot. They chose Otter Cliffs and a stone pebble beach a little ways down from the cliffs that I had never been to before. I love learning of knew spots to shoot in from families who love visiting the park. Thank you so much Mallett family! Here are a few of my favorites from our time in Acadia.

Bangor Maine Family Photographer/ The Collins/ Cook Clan

Bangor Maine Family Photographer

A long long time ago (roughly 3 years) I was pondering what I was going to do with my life and dreaming big dreams. The big don't- you-dare-how-could-that-ever-happen kind of dreams. I bought my first DSLR camera and would take pictures of deeply moving and thought provoking things like my cat. Eventually I made my boyfriend at the time pose and then forced my friends to stand in front of my camera. I'd share some things online and then one day I was contacted by a friend from college. She was getting married STAT and needed a photographer. Her wedding to Rob was the first wedding I ever photographed and now she has a BABY and I'm still photographing weddings. I love how her and I's stories wove together and that I get to pop into hers every now and then for a photo update. This time around, a couple of weeks ago, I got to meet the rest of her clan in a family photo session, including baby Adrielle! She is SO sweet and funny and at such a young age already has quite the personality. Thank you KC and family for keeping me around. Its such a joy to watch your family grow!
