When I'm not photographing weddings, engagements, or families, I'm working with the web team at Bliss Boutiques in Portland, Maine. My dream throughout college was to run my own business. My post-college reality has been working for Bliss and continuing my photography business after hours and on weekends, and it's a scenario better than I could have dreamt up myself. I love being a part of a living, breathing small business. From the makers of the clothing and accessories, to the Bliss staff, to the customers, and back around again, there is a community here I would have sorely missed if I was 100% on my own.
Every now and then, a "day in the office" means a photoshoot with our highlight pieces for the season. A few weeks back, we visited Snug Harbor Farm in Kennebunk on a rainy April day for a couple hours of photos. Between the clothing, the location, and Maya Attean's talent, the shoot was a dream. Take a look!
Two shameless plugs: I can't recommend Bliss enough for clothing and accessories. Knowing my clothes are ethically and thoughtfully made is a value I've found to be worth splurging for. Secondly, if you want to feel like you're in your own secret garden and be tempted to spend every dime you've got on plants, you must visit Snug Harbor Farm.
