Linda is fantastic. Not only is she an old friend, she is a wonderful photographer, who works hard to get the best possible images of our son and family. She is kind, gentle with children, and is wonderfully patient. Thank you Linda!

"We love our family pictures and can't wait to have her take them again!"

what they're saying

It's a big deal

I see you. I know what it’s like to be on a budget (we all have ‘em!). I know how hard it is to invest money in someone you haven’t worked with before. It’s important to check off all your boxes when you’re looking for a photographer, and you’re in the right place! 

what you get

When you join the “ If I had to do it over again, I’d hire Linda every time!” Club, you get a confident, capable, trustworthy photographer to deliver photos of you and those you love. Your future self will thank you. 

let's get started

I'm here for you, 100%

I take care of you all the way from the time you inquire until after your final images are delivered. I know that you want to have photos with your family where everyone is smiling and joyful that you can be proud to display in your home. 

You’ll see me do a lot of happy dances when I get photos that I’m stoked about. I say “I lied, one more photo actually” at least once during portraits because I’ll see a new spot on our way out that just looks SO good. I still get nervous before every session, because I want to give all my people the very best experience, so I pray on the way to each session to help ensure we have the best time ever! 

Don't know what to expect? Here's the process!


you're interested! yay!

Shoot me a message and you'll get a response within 48 hours full of excitement and more details. And exclamation points! Lots of exclamation points! 


the details

Together we will decide how many hours you'll need for your session! We will also chat about what location you'd like to shoot at! I travel anywhere, but only locations within one hour of Portland, Maine are included in my pricing! I love to photograph maternity, families, and couples (anniversaries, engagements, or "just because")!! Portraits start at $550.



Once we are on the same page as far as what your photography needs are, we'll sign a contract and pay a retainer! We will choose TWO dates at the time of booking - one as your session date, and one as a back-up in case anything happens to the first date! :) 

pre-session prep

My goal is to always make sure that my couples and families feel prepared and confident about their session with me! Before your session you'll receive a jam-packed e-mail with all sorts of helpful tips on how to prepare for your session, as well as answer the most popular question - what do I wear?! 



the session

The BEST part!! We will meet at our designated time and location and I'll photograph my heart out! I provide a lot (or a little if you don't need it!) of guidance throughout the session so that you're never stuck wondering what you should do! I'll probably do a fair number of happy dances and gush over how awesome you all look in front of the camera! 



You'll receive your final gallery of edited images in 2-3 weeks! We'll work together to create beautiful art for your walls, as well as create gifts for your families! 

Okay, want in?

As a former teacher, I’m a big believer in setting you up for success! I’ll be with you every step of the way to ensure that your portrait session goes super smoothly and that everything is caught on camera!

Ready to get a super jam packed email with information about my offerings (and lots of exclamation points)? All you have to do is fill out the contact form with all your exciting details!
