Portland Maine Family Photographer

Vacationing in Portland Maine sometime this summer or fall?! Wanting to get some photos of you and your loved ones on the cobblestone streets, ocean front, old European inspired buildings, out on a sailboat that you chartered?! I am your Portland Maine family photographer to not only capture those sweet moments but keep the shoot itself stress free! I offer two different options for your Portland Maine family photographer session- one being an hour long and the other being a mini session at 30 minutes. Please feel free to reach out to me via my contact form here for more information.

I got to photograph this beautiful family in the Old Port while they were on vacation here in Portland Maine for a short trip. They opted for a 30 minute session because we all know that though littles may be sweet, they’re not so in love with long photoshoots. And this sweetie did great for the 30 minute session. The great thing about Portland, and all the other small villages around Maine, are that they are extremely walkable and have cute photo spots around each corner.

One reason why I love the idea of vacation family photos is because you’re more likely than not going to have your best clothes already packed, ironed, and ready to go. No stressing out on the day of the shoot because you’ve got what you’ve got and you’ll make it look fabulous! You’re also likely to be already getting dolled up to go out for dinner or drinks so might as well have a little paparazzi follow you around while you’re looking your best. And what’s better than capturing family time well spent in a new city where you’re going to make memories that last a lifetime.

Ogunquit Fine Art Family Portraits

Danielle reached out to me because her family and her were vacationing in Ogunquit Maine and wanted some family photos while they were all in the same spot of the country. Ogunquit is the cutest coastal town in Maine. Filled with yummy restaurant and a massive beach that you’ll never want to leave. They also have trolleys that run up and down the town so if you’re at a hotel far away you can just jump on a trolley and make it into down town without having to worry about parking. This family portrait session was made up of Danielle’s family, her two sisters, and their partners. We managed to get nice weather even though it’s been raining buckets here in Maine this summer. Enjoy these Ogunquit Maine Fine Art Family Portrait!

Minneapolis Vendor Portraits | Blush and Whim

I have the awesome opportunity to share a studio with this visionary! Not only is she a phenomenal wedding planner but she’s also a great person- funny, care free, and always finding the cup half full. I can 100% say that if you work with Jennae and her awesome team that you will not regret it!

Why did you start your business?

I started Blush & Whim in April of 2013

 

Do you have a team or work alone?

I am so lucky to have a beautiful and dynamic group of women working with me. They are all not only some of the most genuine and kind ladies I have ever met, but also extremely creative, hardworking and passionate about creating a unique and loving experience for each of our clients. They are all so talented in everything they do and inspire me to be be a better maker and business owner everyday!   

 

What is your favorite part of the wedding day?

I love the hustle bustle and organized chaos of the set-up. I really feel in my element when there are a million things happening all at once and that magical moment when everything clicks and comes together. It’s so fun working with all of the incredible talent in the Twin Cities and working with such inspiring people to bring all the details together. Knowing that our clients are relaxing and completely trusting us to take care of all their precious details is very rewarding- and of course seeing the looks on their faces when they see their bouquets or the reception room for the first time is priceless!

 

How do you survive a wedding day?

Extra clothes, bandaids, coconut water and snacks! Wedding season in MN is HOT. I always make sure I bring an extra dress and change of shoes with me so I feel fresh and polished throughout the day.Band-aids are another must have to avoid those nasty blisters that start popping up once you get the 10th, 12th, or even 13th hour in….heels. Ouch. I also make sure I stock up on lara bars, celery and peanut butter, and lots of nuts to keep my energy up throughout the day as it’s hard to take more than 5 minutes to grab a bite to eat. I try to avoid soda or coffee and stick to coconut water or gatorade to avoid those nasty sugar and caffeine crashes. Keeps me feeling sharp and alert into the wee hours of the night! 

 

When do you think is the ideal time/season/place to get married?

I think early October weddings in MN are LOVELY. The changing colors of the leaves and cozy, intimate feel you can achieve with candlelight, warm, neutral tones, and heavier food and wine pairings are my absolute favorite! You just can’t beat Minneapolis in the fall! 

 

Wine or cake?

Ohhhh this is a tough one, but definitely wine! I worked at a winery when I was first getting into the industry and I just love everything about it. Is there anything better than a robust glass of deep crimson zin after a long day? I think not.
