When I think of Maine, I think of capes and rocky coasts, lighthouses, lobster, and cute, wood-shingled cottages – a most idyllic place. So when one of my best pals and photography soul sisters, Greta Rybus, flew me out to her home in Portland to help her with a shoot, I was honored and excited. It had been way too long since I had been to Maine, and way too long since Greta and I adventured together and photographed together and inspired each other, live and in-person! I was also thrilled to get a little taste of Greta's New England life. She is one of my true photography inspirations for so many reasons. Visit her site and you'll see why!
Aside from our day of "work," Greta and I had our fair share of fun and giggles. We ventured from rainy state park beaches to quaint coastal towns, enjoyed local Maine blueberry pie together, took a ferry, picnicked on an island, and stumbled upon a local Italian Festival. Together we captured the experience, similarly, yet differently. I left feeling inspired and energized by Greta's creativity and zeal for photography!
