Roxanne has been a proud member of WPJA (only 5 percent of all photographers are accepted into this organization),PPA, WPPI, Fearless Photographers, and has received The Knot's Best of wedding pick for the photographers category in Maine and in Arizona and the WeddingWire Couples Choice Award.
She is an award winning wedding and portrait photographer that recently relocated back in her home state of Maine after spending the past 4 years of her 25 year wedding career in Arizona (the rest has always been in Maine and other parts of New England and the East Coast). She decided to make this move back from Sedona, Arizona where she had gone on a personal journey and found peace in her soul after the unexpected death of her husband (he was 37 at the time of his death).
Maine will always be "home" and both places have some of the most amazing backdrops for wedding and portrait photography a girl could ask for. She will continue to travel between both states and shoots worldwide. So no matter where you live, if you love her work, she would love to be your photographer.
In her own words...
I began shooting weddings in 1994, it is hard to believe it has been 25 years! In 2003 I began to offer more to my already existing wedding clients and expanded the scope of my passion through maternity, birth, & newborn photography as well as family, high school senior, and many other types of sessions.
Ever since I can remember, I have had a love of photographs. Taking them, looking at them-both have always fascinated me.
My passion for documenting life was most certainly inherited from my parents, who have my life on everything from slide film to digital and everything in between.
My mother especially made sure that every lost tooth, every first day of school (this was a bit embarrassing as a child by the time I hit high school), every birthday, every school play, vacations, interactions with our pets, proms, weddings, pregnancies, and every other moment of our lives-from little everyday things to major moments be forever frozen in time with a photograph.
My dad was more of the artistic one, finding interesting ways to look at something ordinary. Luckily for me, I got a great combination of the genes!
My first camera was from fisher price, at the age of about 2 and my mom recently found that original camera in the attic recently!
I moved on to 110 and 35mm point and shoots. In high school, I got my first 'real' camera as birthday present from my dad. I have had one in my hand as long as I can remember.
It has been a true joy to be a part of my client's lives, knowing that I have created a treasure that will never be sold on Ebay, in a garage sale, or donated to Goodwill. I feel extremely fortunate to be able to do something that I love and preserve memories for people for their lifetimes. I look forward to working with you and your family soon.~Roxanne
