HOLLY ROBERTS ST.CLAIR, OWNER & PHOTOGRAPHER
Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to look at my website. I am proud to offer a variety of photography services in the Midcoast Maine area. I do also love to travel. I specialize in natural light and lifestyle photography, I also love to work with my studio equipment. While working towards a studio of my own(currently under construction!), I have taken many courses by renowned artists and photographers while in pursuit of my Associate's Degree in Science for Digital Photography. I take pride in my work, and have a serious passion for creating stunning photography for my clients. My personal freelance collection is always growing, which is something I can do in my spare time thanks to Maine's incredible natural beauty. I began my journey of life, as well as my journey as a photographer, in the woods of Maine, and will always return to my roots when in need of inspiration.
I am also very proud to be the Director of Photography for Midcoast Lyme Disease Support & Education foundation. This non-profit organization is taking leaps and bounds everyday to help those afflicted by Lyme Disease and it's many co-infections, by educating the public about its troubling presence, as well as offering the community quality information and access to Lyme literate providers in their area.
The Story ...
I am a mother and painter as well as a photographer. My family and I live on a small farm in Nobleboro, Maine. I have two boys, ages 4 and 10. I am a farm girl, and was raised by my grandparents here on the farm where we all live. We all share our lives with our beloved animal companions. We have 2 dogs, 2 cats, 2 horses, and are looking forward to many more as we go along. I love animals, people, and socializing, I try to always live in the moment. I love a challenge and to face the action face to face.
I began photography in the woods, while horse back riding with my girlfriends. It was a happy side effect of trying to improve our riding skills by using video and photos to help us work on our skills. Riding bareback in the woods with a camera is no easy task, so my love affair began, as you might imagine, with a smart phone. It has grown into a full fledged love affair with photography, and I wouldn't have it any other way. About two years after I began pursuing photography seriously as a business, and moved forward to invest in a degree in digital photography. Since that time, my work has grown and flourished. Combining my innate passion for the beauty that life in Maine hands me, I began to look at everything behind the viewfinder of my camera, never leaving home without it. Capturing life's beauty has become a mission for me, a personal, passionate mission with a purpose so much greater than myself. Watching a couple lovingly dote on one another, or a father holding his precious newborn child in his hands, to see the soul inside the person in front of the lens, and to capture a moment in time that will never happen again; this is why I am a photographer.
In a crowded bridal prep room, or a tiny, dimly lit hospital room; I look for those
precious details, a story, and a light source.
The rest is history...
