Roxanne is a proud member of WPJA (only 5 percent of all photographers are accepted into this organization),PPA, WPPI, and has received The Knot's Best of wedding pick for the photographers category for 2011 and 2012.
She is an award winning wedding and portrait photographer that has recently relocated to Arizona from her home state of Maine. She decided to make this move after visiting Arizona in 2012 on a personal journey of finding peace in her soul after the death of her husband and best friend in 2009.
When her son was accepted to Embry Riddle University in Arizona in the Aerospace Engineering program it felt like this was a sign that a wonderful new life awaits her in the West where she had found that inner peace she had been seeking and so the decision was made.
Her primary residence is now AZ but Maine will always be "home" and both 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 19 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
