Design*Sponge was one of the very first blogs I started reading on a regular basis shortly after we moved to Maine over five years ago. It quickly became one of the sites I looked forward to checking daily and when I became addicted to Google Reader (RIP) it was naturally one of the first blogs I added to my subscriptions. My love for Design*Sponge must have been evident to my family, as one Christmas holiday both my mother and my sister gifted me the Design*Sponge at Home book!
Having my photos appear on D*S was high on the list of goals I made once I decided to start branching out from shooting weddings only. And wouldn’t you know, I was able to check that goal off this week – another shoot with Furbish Studio appeared on Design*Sponge on Monday and I couldn’t have been happier about it. Jamie’s assistant, Keila, and her husband live in one of the most vibrant, beautifully unique homes I’ve ever visited. Take a peek at the post here.

What fun it was to be a part of this project – one of Portland’s most anticipated new restaurants, Central Provisions! I met Chris & Paige Gould last winter at an event organized by the Portland Hunt & Alpine Club and was beside myself with excitement when they asked me to take some images for their restaurant that opened earlier this month. The quality of the food at Central Provisions is exceptional – easily one of our very favorites in town right now – the space is truly beautiful, and the bold branding by Might & Main couldn’t be more fitting.
Take a peek at even more Central Provisions goodness on my portfolio site here.
This was such an extraordinary wedding! Annie & Mike were married at Annie’s family’s beautiful historic property in Waldoboro, Maine – Glenhurst. It was a terribly soggy morning, but once it was time for the ceremony, the rain ceased and the sun even made an appearance. Annie & Mike were married underneath a sail that belonged to Annie’s grandmother, overlooking the Medomak River. Their adorable dog, Otis, played a prominent role in the celebration in his adorable bow tie that matched the rest of the groomsmen and Mike. Everything under the tent was, in a word, perfect – all expertly designed and coordinated by Annie herself, too! For more photos, take a peek at their feature in the weddings issue of Maine Magazine!

I’ve read every single issue of Matchbook Magazine since its debut in 2011, so I was particularly excited to see some images I shot for Furbish Studio appear in the December issue! I had the opportunity to collaborate with Jamie & Jessica a few times in 2013 and look forward to sharing even more of the work I’ve done for them in the coming months. Photographing their design work is an absolute dream of an assignment, and I always come home with ideas and inspiration for my own home… but let’s be honest, I really just need Jamie & Jessica to take a trip to Maine and redecorate our house themselves.
Hooray! Michael and I launched an updated portfolio site yesterday, complete with wedding images from the past five (!) years and a new editorial section devoted to my food & travel work. Starting Map & Menu two years ago has led to a variety of photographic opportunities and I couldn’t be happier about adding these images to my portfolio. Have a look around at the new site and be sure to come back soon – I have a lot of new work, a number of weddings, and some press features to share!
And thank you all for the sweet comments you left on Facebook last night - your support means the world to me!
