Spent the weekend with friends roaming the streets (and bars) of Portland, Maine. Love the city, so much to take in and enjoy. Though with these friends, no matter where we go we have a blast. Food, drinks, shops, music, dogs (everywhere) and laughs crammed into 24 hours.

I get asked a lot -“Do you take photos of your family on trips?” I do, I tend to share more of the landscapes, but there are many photos of my family.  And since I am sharing, I will admit to owning/using a selfie-stick for some phone photos.  I have embraced this tool and use it properly.  One shot now and then to capture the whole family, I do not walk around with it and shoot EVERY possible photo in the world using it… not that I am judging, much. Anyway, I have one, I love it and I have plenty of memories I may not have had otherwise.  Here are some favorite selfie-stick and some stick-less photos from the Maine trip of the people I enjoy traveling with.

Day 2 of our lighthouse tour through the south coast of Maine. Overcast and rain, but we had a great time. Below are some of the favorites from the weekend trip.

2 days ago we decided to to head to Maine for the weekend. Not like us, we are planners by nature, so this was a big deal. The decision led to… well, plans. What part, what would we do, all that stuff.  I had one request, I wanted to see the Nubble Lighthouse, I wanted to take a photo of it. I saw it once many years ago when I worked up here, but those days there was no dailypic, there was no camera in my hand. So, past that, I was good for anything. We set a course to Portland Head Light, that led us to 2 Lights, then Bug Light, then a Portland Harbor Cruise, then the most expensive dinner the 4 of us have ever had at the Lobster Cove in York – it was worth it. Then at 10pm, in complete darkness, I made it to Nubble Light, while the family was in a food coma in the car, I mounted the camera to the tripod, found the cable release, made my way by flashlight to the rocky shore across from the light. One test for focus, then one 4 minute, 30 second exposure later, I left with this shot. I consider the trip a success, and I still have another day to go. I added one more shot I got from the cruise of  Portland Head Light.

My last wedding of 2014, and what a wedding it was. January 8th I received a very nice email from Melanie, loaded with !!!, CAPS and emoticons asking me if I would be interested in photographing her wedding, in late November, in Maine and I had been looking forward to it since. Sweet is the easiest way to describe this couple, they are 2 of the nicest people I have ever worked with. The way they look at each other, they glow when they are near each other. The first look was priceless, Mike’s jaw literally dropped after I finally let him turn to see his bride.  Thank you to you both for letting me be part of your day.  I will enjoy the next few weeks going through your photos and reliving the day again. Until then I hope you enjoy these peeks.
