There are only a few days left before fall officially begins and this summer has FLOWN by! We have gone on some amazing adventures, shot some incredible weddings and have met and worked with lots of wonderful people this year. We have been so busy we haven't had a chance to update our blog as often as we would like, but have lots of previews on our Facebook page. Before we begin blogging full sessions we wanted to post a preview of some of our favorite shots from the spring and summer. I am excited to share their stories with you with more images very soon. We are now booking sessions for 2013, please feel free to get in touch with us via e-mail to get our rates for next year (weddings, families, high school seniors). We are only accepting a limited number of weddings next year so please contact us asap if you are interested, we will book up quickly! There will also be info on a boudoir marathon coming soon and some changes to our brand and packaging!
We met Luke and Marion in early 2007, very soon after we had moved to Maine, to discuss their September 2007 wedding. We all hit it off immediately and a quick meeting to discuss their wedding turned into drinks and conversation late into the evening. They were actually some of the first friends we had in Maine. Their wedding was great, we shot several other times after that and then started meeting often for dinners and hanging out. They are SO much fun and it's really rare to meet people you connect with like that as an adult (especially when you don't work in a real office!). And we feel so lucky when we have clients that we hit it off with like that. Luke and Marion are moving to Maryland (today, actually!) and even though we are sad to see them go they are taking advantage of new opportunities there and are excited to live in a new area... Actually we think that secretly they just think that Maryland crabcakes are better than Maine's. ;)
Here are some of the shots we took as part of an anniversary/goodbye shoot... M&L we will miss you!
Happy Friday! Our series is back for week two, posting five random photos from shoots we've had that you probably haven't seen yet! :) We have so many great shoots and weddings coming up in May! ;)
Our new blog feature--every Friday check in to see five random photos from us! Some may be from new shoots we've done and some from old that we never got a chance to blog. :)
Last week when we were in New York we met up with an old friend we knew when we lived in Connecticut to do some promo shots for her for her new business and website. Lisa is a Feldenkrais Teacher. It's one of many approaches to mindfulness, like yoga or meditation, with a special focus on how to move with greater ease and less wear and tear on the body. She also does organizational development for a business innovations think tank. Lisa wanted shots that showed her as a vibrant, fun person (which she is :) ).
It was great to see her again and hang out and walk around the city to shoot with her. If you're looking for some new shots for your business let us know, this shoot took about an hour and we have so many great shots for her!
We are SO excited to finally be able to release images from that Spring 2010 issue of Portland Style Magazine! The magazine is now out on newsstands around Portland (all over downtown!) and if you're in the area please grab a copy because the images look great printed and there are articles and other resources in there. Since only 5 images are in the magazine we thought we'd show more from the shoot here. We had three incredible local models (Emily, Inna and Corey) along with the help of our super talented makeup artist (Rebecca) and hairstylist (Asia). Styling is by me (Jess)! The flowers for the shoot were provided by the wonderful and talented Judy at Flora Fauna. Clothing is from local shops Chantal and McKenzie Tribe. We cannot thank everyone involved enough! And wait until you see what we have planned for the summer issue!
ps: we're not going to be that company that spams you repeatedly to join our Facebook page, but if you're interested we post news, specials, photos and more there! Thanks for the support!
Last week we posted one of our first senior rep sessions we had and you got a sneak peak of Aislinn. She and Teodora are the first reps that we've shot this year and we had a ton of fun getting to know them and shooting. I wish I had senior photos like this of myself from when I was a senior (mine are boring, studio backdrop and pretty awful). We will begin shooting senior sessions in April and continue up through the fall. As you can see our shoots are anything but ordinary and we have great locations and ideas for this year. We also have an amazing makeup artist who works with us on all our shoots, Rebecca Morrell, who adds so much to the shoots. Please get in touch with us regarding our pricing and other info for scheduling a senior shoot this summer!
You'll see more of Aislinn this summer when we do a full senior session with her, but here's her mini session!
