Ive been working on getting together some info for Christmas mini sessions (coming soon) and also booking fall family shoots- which has lead to a few of my clients asking about any tips i have for good color schemes, or outfit ideas for fall. (Don’t forget i have a pinterest board HERE with all kinda of ‘what to wear’ ideas!) I figured while im at it, i could throw up some wardrobe inspiration on the ‘ol bloggie!
Well, its March. That time of year, when, my taxes are done. I’m caught up from the year before in my editing. I’ve had a break. A nice little break. Now, I’m ready to GET BACK TO WORK. I’ve had some things going here and there, but mother nature just isn’t co-operating quite enough for me to be full fledged busy. So, i recently decided to volunteer my time and services to our local animal shelter, the Coastal Humane Society. I know how important and crutial it is for animals waiting to be adopted to have quality photos. LOTS of people look online to find the animal they might call their own, and just like with people, a photo can make you look amazing, and showcase your true personality, orrrrr…not so much. It was perfect timing. Shortly after I emailed them, they told me they were expecting in 10 or so dogs and puppies from a shelter down south. The dogs had been on death row, due to shelter crowding. I could tell they were just so excited to get these dogs, and equally excited to have me there to document it. I too, could hardly wait. Here are some photos I got that day, of the dogs arrival, their bath…and settling in to their new (short term) life at the shelter. I was just amazed at how sweet and happy they were through the whole process. ugh. love.
If you are interested in adopting one of these adorable pups, or want more info on volunteering you can visit the Coastal Humane Society. Just click on adopt to see all their sweet animals up for adoption.
You are about to meet the lovely Weston Family. I first met Alexis and her son Ronin last spring. They were actually my first OpLove clients, and when we met, she was pregnant with the cute little miss Clause you are about to meet, and her husband Brenden was deployed overseas. I was SO excited when Alexis contacted me saying she and the WHOLE FAMIY were back in Maine and wanted to do a shoot! Here are a few of my faves. If you’d like to see our OpLove shoot from last spring, click here. For more information on Op Love Sessions click here. Enjoy!
So I was realizing the other day when I was making an OpLove business card to give to my FIRST OpLove client, that I didn’t have any info up on my blog about Operation: Love Reunited! Well, lets fix that!
I recently decided to join this non profit organization- which provides free photo shoots to military families who are either about to be deployed, are deployed, or are returning home. The volunteering photographer then compiles an album of shots from the session to send to the deployed family member, in hopes of boosting morale for that soldier.
I am so excited to be a part of this, and to, in a small way, show my gratitude for all those militarty folks who give SO MUCH for us, everyday. My brother has been in the Marines for almost 20 years, and been deployed more than once, so i thought this would be a lovely way to honor him and his family. I’ve always felt there aren’t enough words that could show gratitude for what they, and all service members do for us- so I will give them photo’s instead.

This shoot is from February (big surprise, Im waaay behind in my blogging! :/ I got to spend a few hours with 2 of my new favorite people, one of my long time favorites (a good friend of mine, introduced us, and was at the shoot to give a hand with the horses, and ME!) and their lovely animals. Dogs, Horses, Bunnies, oh my!
