Quirky, Unapologetically curvy as f%*k female who brings the fun back into photography!

hey there

It was such a beautiful day to explore Reid State Park in the Spring with Kayla + Teddy. A calm breeze, warm touch of the sun, and not a heck-of-a-lot of people around!

When planning your engagement session, I really like to focus on you as a couple. Creating images that truly mean something to you, is super important to us here at Meraki Portrait. Kayla and Teddy really wanted something light, playful, and romantic. They absolutely love the Portland, Maine area - specifically the local breweries. With COVID, they really didn’t want a heavy crowd around. Which is why we chose Reid State Park!

We never start a session with a camera in our faces. We like to warm you up and ease into it. We like to really go on an adventure doing things you love on a day-to-day basis. We really like to hang out with you for a few hours.

Reid State Park has it all - woods, coastal vibes, beach, and even drift wood! Which is exactly what Maine has to offer here. Kayla + Teddy even brought some local beer with them to enjoy! I absolutely loved that! CHEERS! Doesn’t matter what the weather is here, it never disappoints.

If you are nervous about crowds right now, finding a location for your engagement session that you can truly relax at is key. Find yourself a photographer that doesn’t make your moment and imagery, about them. Find yourself a photographer that understands you.

We laughed, we got to know each other more, we got to be kids, we got to celebrate with a champagne spray shot! We got ….. to enjoy this chapter in lives (even with a camera in their faces)!!

Kayla + Teddy, thank you for trusting me with this chapter in your lives! I can not wait for your Beech Ridge Barn wedding in 2022! I simply can not wait to meet all those so close to you. Let’s get beers sometime together!

If you are a non-traditional couple who is looking for fun as f*%k experience, fill out the contact form on the contact page! I would love to hear all the fun details about what makes you!
