Tara http://melissamariephoto.com/blog/2017/4/tara I met Tara for the first time on the day we hopped on a ferry and walked 20 minutes to an abandoned fort on Peak's Island. Talk about bold. This is one of the reasons I like her so much! The shoot needles to say was a blast. I am always down for a new adventure especially if I can take photos! Here is a sneak at our shoot on Peaks Island.

Yasmine http://melissamariephoto.com/blog/2017/3/yasmine Last weekend I got to shoot with the lovely Yasmine Imon of the very fashionable blog - rebbelle.com

This was my first time shooting a blogger and I had a blast in the process. 

Yasmine was just getting over a cold and had been on a shoot for six hours before we met up. Yes, I said six hours. Not to mention it was about 45 degrees and very windy at our location. Yet, Yasmine was professional, polite and such a pleasure to shoot with. I had so much fun and loved the results of this collaboration. If all bloggers are like Yasmine then - bloggers Hit me up! 🤙 

And go check out this lovely lady's blog for the feature and so much more!

Chelsea http://melissamariephoto.com/blog/2017/2/chelsea Meeting and working with Chelsea this past weekend was such a pleasure. She is not only the sweetest person, she is stunning and incredibly professional. We ventured a little and took some small risks on our shoot and the results were awesome! I am so happy how the photographs came out.

Thanks Chelsea for a super fun shoot!

Grace http://melissamariephoto.com/blog/2017/2/g

I got to meet and work with Grace in the middle of a snow storm this past weekend. She was a trooper! It was seriously coming down and Grace was right there with us rollin' with the punches. We ventured around the city a bit starting at the library, making our way down to Dobra Tea Shop then to the very awesome Bull Moose record store. All these locations were so fun and full credit goes to Sety Fu Photography for finding them! Being new to Portland is difficult sometimes because I am not use to living in a city I don't know every inch of. Luckily I had the guidance of Sety and every place we went to was perfection. This shoot was so much fun and hopefully is the beginning of many more like it in Maine. 

Hope you like the photos!

Snow Weekend Recap! http://melissamariephoto.com/blog/2017/2/weekend-recap-it-was-a-long-one  

Hello and Happy Valentine's day!

This post was super spontaneous and I'll admit mostly for my close friends and fam to give them a quick update on our snowed in weekend. This is not a Valentine's day post. It just so happened to coincide so sorry =)

Anywho, here is a mini weekend recap since I pretty much had a 5 day weekend YIKES! Most of the time we were in our home keeping cozy because the snow outside was coming down hard. But we did manage to enjoy our last snow day yesterday and adventured to the park with Bella for some fun. The snow went up and over my knees! Even poor Bella was sinking. Luckily she has a little deer sprint in her (if you saw her Instagram story you know what I'm talking about ;p ) She LOVED every second of it. Greg wanted to take charge of the camera which is why he's not in here so I said sure honey and he documented a glimpse of our snow day in the park.

Our new Home! Well, some of it =) http://melissamariephoto.com/blog/2017/2/our-new-home Greetings from Maine!

I haven't been blogging as much as I want to since we've been moving and settling into our new little apartment. But I thought that I would post something today since we just made ONE month in Portland! A lot of our friends and family have been asking to see the new apt so...In honor of this first milestone I am sharing an apartment preview! Not all our room are here because not all our room are clean =p Although we've come a long way with getting the place together we still have much to go. So here is a sneak peak. 

The walls are bare and the furniture is minimum but I really wanted to take my time with decorating this home to our liking. One lesson we learned from our first place in Queens is that you can't rush it. Cliche I know, but it's sooooo true. It's hard to stop yourself from wanting to buy absolutely everything all at once and have everything set right away but you have to take your time. Trust me! 

 

Our living room!

We kept our furniture for this room because well...if it ain't broke right! Also, this couch is soooo comfy. My mom was kind enough to give us this living room set 7 years ago and we still love it so there's no way we could get rid of it. 

  

Bedroom!

Although 99.9% of everything in here we needed to purchase this time around (we HAD to graduate from a full to a queen), there are things we kept from our last place. Like our TV of course and this wonderful jewelry armoire Greg's mom gave me a few years ago. It might not match perfectly but I believe in keeping things that mean something. 

I'm pretty sure Bella thinks this her HER new bed...

First ALMOST full week in Maine http://melissamariephoto.com/blog/2017/1/first-maine-hike  

Our movers came to pick up our furniture on Monday and well, they are still not here (grr) so we have no furniture, no TV, no internet... pretty much just our bed and a tiny monitor with an antenna to watch local channels. I am NOT complaining - I swear! Just wanted to paint a picture here. We are starting the adjustment process here. So far we have found a coffee shop with WI-FI which I am sitting in right now writing this post, a few pretty awesome grocery stores, an awesome breakfast spot and a nearby hiking trail! 

We got here Monday night to a nice cool 8 degrees and we thought - well great. However, yesterday surprised us when we woke up to a beautiful sunny day. At around noon the temperature rose to a wonderful 55 degrees. Greg and I looked at each other and said...hike?... Hike! Yup people, we went for a hike. Now I am kicking myself because my camera is still packed up somewhere so I wasn't able to document this beautiful hike with anything other than my iPhone camera. So the quality isn't wonderful but anyone that knows me knows I just can't help myself. I needed to take the photos no matter what I had. It was just so beautiful. Of course my iPhone camera does not do this hike justice but I still wanted to share with you guys.    

Greg made me a walking stick 😛

Oh hey!

An Ode to Queens http://melissamariephoto.com/blog/2017/1/an-ode-to-queens Welp, now that the news of Greg and I moving is out, I thought I would dedicate a post to the place we have called home for the past six and a half years.

Queens, New York

In 2010 Greg and I went on a hunt for a place to live in together. Boy did we luck out. We found this awesome one bedroom apartment on the fifth floor of a walk up right in between LIC and Astoria. When we moved in, we were excited to explore our new neighborhood. Walking all over it checking out the restaurants, bars, pubs and of course, the beer gardens. We found out very quickly that Queens is awesome! The culture and diversity in this borough is none like I’ve ever experienced before; there is a little bit of EVERYTHING. Needless to say we have very much cherished and enjoyed our life here. We’ve had countless laughs, have had even more brunches. We adopted our first dog together, got engaged and then married; met some amazing people and brought people into the neighborhood. 

We love Queens and are forever grateful for everything it has been to us. 

Here's to Queens!
