Welcome, thank you so much for stopping by I am so thankful that you have taken the time to check out my work.
I have always had a love for photography and photos. I was always the one with the camera in high school always snapping away; you could often find me in the dark room developing so many photos. In 2011 after I had my first baby my passion for capturing all of life’s moments began to stir. I had always thought about possibly starting my own business, why not now. Slowly I began taking photos of anyone that would let me, a year later my sister joined me in the business and thus Strawberry Patch Photography was born. Over the past 5 years I have grown and learned so much; meet so many amazing family and continue to feel so honored each time I am invited into their lives.
I am located in Portland, Maine and am willing to travel. I am a natural light photographer that specializes in lifestyle and documentary style. When it comes to finding the right photographer to document your families story that is no easy task, there are so many options to choose from. I pride myself in capturing life and loves most precious moments through the lens. I find joy in all walks of life, wedding days, bringing a new little one into your home, and the everyday things that make life so beautiful.
During our time together you can expect to have fun, feel relaxed, receive some direction, and of course be yourself; striving to achieve that with a mix between posed and candid images. It is a joy working with you to choose the perfect location and outfit that best represents your personality. You are given starting direction; where to stand, a general idea of what to do and help you feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera. the goal is to have fun and capture who you truly are. Our time together is not just another photo shoot to add to the calendar but memories to add to your family experiences.
Thank you again and I am so excited to meet you and your beautiful loved ones.
I live on coffee hot or cold and enjoy the occasional nap. I am a self taught photographer learning more every day. My husband Kyle and I have three little children that we are trying to maintain and keep alive. When we can get out for a date night we enjoy all the options that are offered to us in downtown Portland. We love this city and we love meeting new people here all the time.
Allison, my sister has been here with SPP since the beginning. Strawberry Patch would not be what it is today with out her. Last year, 2016, Allison took on her own business and it has thrived. She will join me at weddings and large family events. I am so excited for all the wonderful things that are in store for her. ❤
I completely love photography, always have-always will. My favorite part about photography are the memories. I love looking at a photo and being transported back to that day and time, the way the sun and the ocean breeze felt- the joke that was just told, the friends I was with, it’s magical. I am a self-taught photographer with a B.A. in Communications. I never knew my passion would become photography but, I am so glad it did! I love being there clicking away capturing real smiles, real tears, a big bear hug and real laughs. It’s such an honor to be there, everything from photographing your Wedding Day to your first child’s 1 year Cake Smash. It’s all so special and I can’t wait to meet you!
