Congratulations to the exceptional graduates of Maine Medical Center in 2023. For this special portrait session, we decided to venture outdoors to the picturesque Western Promenade near the Maine Medical Center campus. The weather graciously blessed us with perfect conditions, allowing us to capture this remarkable group portrait of the entire class. It's truly a joyous occasion to document these graduates as they embark on the next phase of their medical journey, filled with passion and dedication. We genuinely cherish the opportunity to photograph the graduates year after year, witnessing their growth and celebrating their achievements.
About 100 juried exhibitors from Maine gathered on Free Street as one collective. The works represented were makers from all over who have a love of Maine. The Portland Fine Craft Show is a yearly highlight for everyone.
Last summer, we had the pleasure of visiting Crescent Beach in Maine to partake in a truly unique walking processional musical concert along the shore, presented by the organization Vigorous Tenderness. Described as an immersive outdoor concert series that amplifies marginalized voices in classical music and democratizes new/experimental music, Vigorous Tenderness provided a truly remarkable experience. We are delighted to share one of the many images we captured, which vividly documents the resounding success of this captivating public art event.
In this photo: hundreds of community members, neighbors, strangers, and friends gathering with a shared purpose—to stroll along the Maine shore, feeling the gentle sand beneath our feet and the refreshing ocean breeze on our faces, while being serenaded by meticulously curated live music. None of us departed from this enchanting experience unchanged; we were all spellbound.
As audience members, we were utterly captivated by the dedication and individuality showcased at each music station, as well as the immense talent displayed by the musicians who wholeheartedly poured their souls into their performances for us and the sea.
Our heartfelt appreciation goes out to everyone involved in making these moments so incredibly special. If you haven't yet had the opportunity to attend one of these concerts, we wholeheartedly encourage you to do so. You won't want to miss out on the transformative magic that awaits.
Heartfelt congratulations to the remarkable graduates of the Maine Medical Center Cardiovascular program in 2023. As you embark on your exciting journey, we extend our warmest wishes for a future filled with success and fulfillment. I am humbled and thrilled to have had the privilege of capturing this significant milestone through our group portrait session. Thanks for taking a collective 15-minute break to join me for this memorable photograph. The ongoing trust and collaboration between MMC and our photography team, year after year, is a testament to the exceptional partnership we share. Once again, congratulations to each and every one of you, and may your passion for healthcare continue to shine brightly as you make a positive impact in the world.
We fondly recall a delightful day in Portland, where Make Music Portland and their dedicated team of volunteers transformed an ordinary sunny June day into a vibrant celebration of community and music. The downtown area came alive with enchanting melodies as talented musicians performed in public spaces throughout the day. From an accomplished harmonica musician who generously shared his skills to the energetic performances of a local high school jam band in the park, the air was filled with captivating tunes.
This particular photograph captures a heartwarming moment of a young girl experiencing the joy of learning to play the harmonica for the very first time. Her unwavering determination is evident as she attentively absorbs every instruction from the harmonica musician.

The festivities were brimming with the exuberance of outdoor life, music and joy. While there might not be a Make Music Portland event scheduled for 2023, we eagerly anticipate the possibility of another remarkable gathering in 2024!
Early morning photography walk through Portland, Maine in the summer of 2022. Cyle created these amazing aerial images of Monument Square and Our Lady of Victories dedicated in the honor of the military soldiers. Portland Downtown has upgraded the area with public markets, holiday festivities, and these beautiful turquoise picnic tables.
Convinced Photography had the pleasure of capturing the delectable daily menu offerings at Jonathans, a beloved restaurant that has firmly established itself in the charming coastal town of Ogunquit, Maine since the 1970s. This timeless dining spot is widely recognized and cherished, known for its weekly menu specials and enchanting seasonal musical concerts.
During an unforgettable afternoon, we had the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the welcoming ambiance of Jonathans. We got to know the dedicated staff, including the talented kitchen team, and meticulously photographed the iconic menu items. Our chosen setting was a particular dining area bathed in the soft, ethereal glow of natural garden light. Against the backdrop of pristine white linen tablecloths, we captured a table set with elegance and anticipation, ready to offer a memorable dining experience.
Between each carefully styled food arrangement, we took the time to photograph the intricate details of a neighboring table setting. We are thrilled to share these captivating images with you, along with the final hero image of the afternoon. This collection showcases a mouthwatering array of some of the finest dishes that Jonathan's has to offer, set against a backdrop of a beautifully adorned table, inviting all to indulge and savor. Bon Appétit!
