Lives In Scarborough on a farmette called Sinclair Acres
For most of my life I have been surrounded by storytelling. Surrounded by family and later friends who felt documenting the day to day, telling the story of your life is important. Not only big days like weddings but smaller days, like the time you learned to ride a bike without training wheels. For me, photos almost always accompany these stories. Photos are a powerful thing; they can bring back emotions and feelings from that very day.
I have been the storyteller, tradition keeper, picture taker in my family for a long time; long before I even picked up a camera I knew these things were important. Now I share that belief and my talents with my clients.
A little over 6 years ago I moved to Maine and left my southern New England roots behind. As a foodie I couldn’t have picked a better spot than Portland (Hello Fore Street!). As a storyteller I wanted to be near the stories I wanted to tell, so Scarborough keeps me really close to my family. As a wedding photographer I can’t think of a prettier place to make pictures – from the rocky coast to the mountains to the Berkshires, I think New England is the prettiest spot on earth. Everyone has a story! What’s yours?
I teach story writing throughout Greater Portland and connect published authors with student writers.
Life is a colorful palette, giving a creative sixth sense to looking at the world around us.
