I can't even believe I get to say that! I have had such an amazing year getting to know a new city, meeting new people and eating LOTS of seafood. I have had wonderful friends and family come up and visit and made some awesome friendship here as well. Nothing scared me more than moving to a place where we knew absolutely no one - especially as an adult. It has more than anything, forced us to put ourselves out there. Something that can be hard for  a lot of us. But boy am I happy we did. This past year in Maine has been one of the best collection of experiences and I am so grateful for it. 

This year, I plan to dedicate a little bit more time to my blog, hopefully get to interact a lot more with you guys and share more about our life and adventures here. I want you to see us grow and our life change and I want to celebrate things with you too! Thank you guys for your support and making my social media and photography journey so fun. It means so much <3 I am excited to share more with you and hope you all enjoy following along. 

So let's begin with a few of my favorite moments from our first year in Maine!

Personal Style - NYC Central Park http://melissamariephoto.com/blog/2017/11/personal-style---nyc-central-park I am addicted to Levi's jeans. I might be a bit bias though because I use to work at the Union Square Levi's store and well... what better way to learn exactly what pair of jeans fits you perfectly - am I right? On my last visit to NYC I met up with my buddy Davidson and we walked around Central Park talking photography and taking some snaps here and there. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to introduce a new part of my Personal Blog where I'll share if I like my outfit that day. Let's just call it "Personal Style" ;p By no means am I the most stylish person but I have my moments and sometimes, those moments are part of a regular day. I also love a good bargain - I mean - who doesn't? Simple and affordable is the name of the game. Here is my first "Personal Style" entry to what is now becoming somewhat of a digital diary of mine. You know what. I kind of like it =) 

See bottom for outfit details.

Also how cute is my bestie!

Halloween Weekend in a little place called Hallowell http://melissamariephoto.com/blog/2017/10/halloween-weekend-in-a-little-place-called-hallowell Happy Halloween everyone! 

This past Saturday I decided to take a little day trip up to the cute little town of Hallowell! If you haven't been yet, you should definitely try to check it out. It's downtown is very small (about six blocks or so) but it's six blocks of adorable store fronts and two very good breweries with great food and live music. We got there around lunch time so grabbed a quick bite at The Liberal cup. After some yummy spinach artichoke dip and fish and chips we walked across the street to the Quarry Tap Room for a refreshing local brewed beer. If beer isn't your thing. There is still plenty to see and do. The town is right on the Kennebec River with a nice space full of chairs where you can sit and enjoy the view or just walk along the water. There are antique shops, an awesome candy store and a beautiful trail not to far away. This little town has so much charm. The perfect location for a beautiful Saturday afternoon. 

Here are a few snaps from my Saturday in Hallowell

My Birthday at Acadia National Park http://melissamariephoto.com/blog/2017/10/my-birthday-at-acadia-national-park I spent the morning of my birthday watching the sunrise at the top of Cadillac Mountain. What a sight to start your year with! 

Not only is this a memory I will cherish for the rest of my life I will also cherish who I spent it with. For my birthday adventure weekend I decided to bring along the three most important beings in my life. My mom, my hubby Greg and our dog Bella! 

Acadia National Park was truly an amazing experience and the perfect location for my thirtieth birthday! 

 

Oh! Quick reminder guys! I am still accepting donations to help with the shipping costs of all the food, clothes, shoes and supplies I am sending to Puerto Rico 

Please don't forget about them they still need our help! There is still no electricity or water in A LOT of the island. My best friend Maria is one of the people still with none of this. So please if there is any way you can help whether donating to us to get this stuff down there or anywhere else you know of please help! 

Here is the link to my GoFundMe page. We are almost at our goal! Help us get these supplies down to the people that need them! 

https://www.gofundme.com/puerto-rico-shipping-costs-help

Bella was feeling on top of the world! 

We stayed at the Cutest cottage my Hubby found on AirBNB it was right on the water and had so much space for Bella to run around! 

On our way back down to Portland we decided to drive down the coast and make a quick stop in Rockland. 

My mom showing off =p

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!
