How would you describe yourself?
I am analytic, driven, energetic, outgoing, optimistic, persistent and social. I enjoy collaborating and helping others succeed. I am also realistic, and self aware of my growth opportunities which help me to continuously grow and become a better version of myself.
Tell us a little about your business and how you got started.
I run Wentworth Event Center in Belfast Maine. We host weddings, meetings and celebrations.
The business started in 2009 when my father and I identified the need for event space in Belfast. We already owned the property, and had a vacant building at the time. Each year since 2009 we have made improvements to the building and the property. Continue reading »
I met my first husband when I was 16 years old. He started out sweet and caring, and it wasn’t long before I was pregnant. By our first anniversary I was miserable. All we did was fight and he had begun the process of isolating me from everyone I knew and who cared about me. That was the beginning of nearly 7 years of Hell.
By the age of 21 I was completely brainwashed, nearly suicidal and feeling hopeless. I was lost and it was all I could do to get through each day without letting his words and actions destroy me completely. I started drinking heavily to escape my misery.
I finally got scared enough to leave in August of 2006 with 2 kids and one on the way and moved in with my estranged father…. We hadn’t spoken in nearly a year, because of my husband, yet he opened his home to me and my children. I managed to go back to school and got my GED, I got my own place for me and the kids, and I started to be able to see that I had value.
One day while I was out shopping, I decided to look at the workout videos and on a whim purchased Volume 1 of the Carmen Electra Aerobic Striptease collection. Continue reading »
I met Miss A on a local message board on Facebook of all places. She was looking for recommendations for a hair and makeup artist for her upcoming wedding. Once I showed her the before/after samples here on my site and pointed her in the direction of Amelia (AKA “Miss Magic Hands”) she started following me and attended my grand opening event in February so she could meet Amelia. She ended up booking a session and she was an absolute gem to work with. Continue reading »
I began my photography journey in late 2012 after some friends pleaded with me to photograph their wedding. I was only a hobbyist before that, so I wasn’t convinced I could do a good job and enlisted the help of my friend Brittany of Sisco Photography to help. It was a fantastic experience, and after that I began to really consider that maybe I could make this into something.
Through the next year I spent a lot of time practicing, trying out all different genres of photography. I did a lot of online workshops, read everything I could find on the subject, practiced every chance I got, and even opened up my fragile ego to have my work critiqued by other photographers… which 9 times out of 10 in the first 6 months resulted in tears and being ready to hang up my camera for good (Yeah, I really was that bad!)
Anna is a gorgeous wife and mother of two. She came to me after having a conversation with someone and realizing that she was in the greatest shape of her life, was finished having children and had never felt better about herself than she does now. She wanted to do this shoot as a way to document that before she gets older and her body changes. She also thought it would be a great way to do something out of her comfort zone and surprise her husband for their wedding anniversary!
