I rarely sneak peek anymore. Ok, who am I kidding, I rarely blog anymore lol, but had to pop this onto the blog this morning as a reminder to myself to sloooooow down a bit.  Something a little different from me, but I love the calm serenity in this image, which is quite the contrast to this Dad’s typical fast-paced day.  With so many moms and dads juggling countless responsibilities, or as I like to say “going full speed on the hamster wheel” it’s a good reminder to slow down, take a walk with our kids, and just enjoy the breeze on your face.  Now, if you’re lucky enough to be enjoying that breeze on a Florida beach, more power to you, but in any case, just take a deep breath and enjoy the view wherever you are, and most importantly, the ones walking beside you.

Who says you have to wear a suit for a professional headshot?  Not this stunning entrepreneur, that’s for sure!  We recently had a fun-filled and busy day in the studio downtown- photographing professional women with a vast array of careers.  Prior to coming in, we encouraged each of our clients to bring a few different clothing options, that best fit their style, and what they wanted to convey about themselves to THEIR clients.  On site, prior to having their hair and make-up professionally done (thanks to Jo from Bobbi Brown, and Nicole from Hudson & Fouquet) we discussed their options and settled on the looks that we felt best suited them.  I’ll be sharing more of those images, but in the meantime, here’s a favorite of Kristen, owner/operator of Lil Lamb Shop here on Maryland Avenue!

If you’d like to join us for our next professional headshot day – contact the studio now to reserve your spot for June 11 – time slots are going quickly!

The only thing better than a room full of Maine Cottage furniture is a room full of Maine Cottage furniture with fabulous art on the walls!  I recently photographed the artists currently being featured in the new MC Art Gallery and was completely wow’d by their work.  My friend/client Liz Lind has been working with MC for some time, and one of her pieces from their collaborative collection hangs in my bedroom (with a soon-to-arrive Low-Tide table in HOT LIME – yes, that’s right hot lime) beneath it!

Since I’m dreaming of the beach on this dreary, rainy day, I’ll add artist Kim Hovell’s portrait with a few of her beautiful coastal paintings, along with Liz Lind hard at work.
