August 31 was International Overdose Awareness Day. In Portland, Maine, non-profit organizations and members of the community gathered in Deering Oaks Park to honor lives lost to drug overdose and advocate for solutions to this public health crisis. Here, Bryn Gallagher stands in front of a chalkboard decorated with names of loved ones that visitors lost this year. The board will then be displayed at city hall.
How I feel about the first day of school today 😎 It still feels like summer (thankfully!) but fall is approaching, which has always been a time of big transitions for me. Best of luck to everyone starting school, a new job, or any other life changes this season! 👍🏻
This Spring wedding with @sara_elizabethphotography was a lot of fun! 🌷 The couple was lovely but I think these little ones stole the show 💫
There’s not much I can compare the fog in coastal Maine to, especially that magical hour when the sun starts to dissolve it in the morning. ☀️🌊
