The restaurant industry has experienced a lot of highs and lows this year. It has been a great joy to work with restaurant owners during this time and to be a photographic witness of their resilience and creativity through this ever evolving season.
Take a look at a few of the photographs we created for our clients. Dough Craft Pizza really knows what they are doing and the flavors are phenomenal!
Most chefs can open any fridge or pantry and create the most magnificent feast from the simplest ingredients. So it is of no surprise that the restaurant world can take the present circumstances however great or challenging and still create something so beautiful from it all. It's like it’s in their DNA or something. Creating beautiful menu items in the midst of some of our most troubling times. Keeping us happy with great treats to take home, enjoy outdoors, and to not have to cook! Yay!
It makes what we do as photographers so rewarding. We get to tell the story of the restaurant and the completed dish. Knowing so many of their patrons are going to be enticed by even more of their beautiful kitchen creations and enjoy all of the fulfilling goodness.

Rí Rá Portland has a lot of history for me. During my first visit to Portland, Maine, we gathered with loved ones and enjoyed a lovely meal by the water. Over time it has grown to be one of our favorite spots and have often enjoyed a hearty meal and beer.
On my most recent visit, Rí Rá became one of our clients and we had the wonderful opportunity to photograph so many new menu items for Fall 2020. Here are a few images of that photography session.
We love working with restaurants right around the corner from our home here in Portland, Maine. The Old Port is the core foodie area of Portland, Maine and there really is something for everyone. Today, we chose Irish deliciousness! Rí Rá thank you again for making such heart warming meals! You help us survive through the cold winter.
We are sharing a few selected photographs from the fresh and authentic menu of Ameera in Portland, Maine. The menu is incredibly bright, aromatic, and so tasty.
This is Pier 77 Restaurant in beautiful Kennebunkport, Maine. We created these images to showcase the lovely dining area with the beautiful vistas of the Atlantic Ocean. There are white linens, classic stemware, and a baby grand piano to enhance the already perfect atmosphere. There is also a fun bar called The Ramp nearby and it has such a great view too. The decor is pretty fun.
The restaurant owners have used these images for their social media and marketing purposes. They have been viewed thousands of times. Photography is now so integral in the success of a restaurant. Customers want to know and be really acquainted with not just the menu but the environment. So we make sure to provide a valuable collection of images that the restaurant can use all season long.
