Portland, Maine Photographer :: A favorite almost-self-portrait

Day 17 – A favorite photo of yourself and why.

Y’know, I must say – I’m really diggin’ this blog everyday in May challenge. The topics are fun, and it really helps me figure out my personality with writing, even though I have a long ways to go with that! I’ve decided to put my typical posts (except for my featured Wednesdays and Friday tips) on hold for June, so that I don’t have blog overload 🙂

I call this an almost-self-portrait because I didn’t plan it, or take it. But, I do love it and I am the star of the photo 🙂 My wedding photographer, RW Photo, did a FABULOUS job with our wedding photos, and I absolutely treasure them today. This is one of my favorite photos of me of all time.


It just exudes happiness. 

This photo also represents a HUGE turning point in my life. I was getting married, and moving out on my own, and moving on with my life. I was, and still am, over the moon about what my wedding meant to me. I’m ridiculously happy being with my husband, and I’m so grateful that I was able to celebrate such a special day with so many people who are super important to me.

One of the best times of my life, right there.

You can usually find me adding books to my never-ending “to read” list; challenging myself to do things like not shop for a year; sneaking crispy m+ms from my secret hiding spot so I don’t have to share them with my daughter; and melting over seeing my children smiling at each other.

Oh and I guess I should mention - I’m a seasoned Portland wedding photographer who provides not only kick-ass wedding photos, but also a meaningful and laid-back experience from the time you book to the delivery of your final images. 

I share all things personal, business, tips, and life as a mom and business owner here on the blog!
