About

S Miner Headshot Pp  72dpi

My love for photography and creative talent has always been present throughout my life.  I truly enjoy capturing the beauty of our world, whether it's a majestic landscape scene or bringing out the unique character of a high school senior.

I am married and have two really cool teenaged kids; my daughter, Jordan, will soon be off to college and my son, Dylan, will be a Junior in high school this Fall.  My husband, Kevin, is a wonderful father who coaches and is self employed running his own construction business.  We have two dogs, two cats and a house full of hairy dust bunnies; we wouldn't have it any other way!

As you look at my work, you'll see images of nature, wildlife and landscapes.  These photographs are special to me and each have a story behind each of them.  Seeing my first Aurora in Iceland was certainly a highlight in 2017.  You'll also see I enjoy photographing high school seniors, sports athletes and their families.  I also enjoy taking professional head shots for social media sites.  Many photographers specialize in one or two areas of expertise; I have found enjoyment and success in photographing multiple genres; it allows me to explore the many creative sides of photography and it challenges me to learn new things.  I am a student of this craft and truly enjoy learning and continuously growing as a photographer.

I am a member of the Maine Professional Photographers Association (MPPA), the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), Professional Photographers of New England (PPANE) and the New England Institute of Professional Photographers (NEIPP).  I became the 2017 Maine Professional Photographer of the Year for a set of images that merited at the 68th Annual Maine Photographic Association’s (MPPA) competition - a link to the article can be found here: Gorham Times Article.  A collection of these images also earned me Bronze Medalist Photographer of the Year at the International Photographic Competition held in August of 2017.  It was my first time competing at this level and all my images received a merit (very excited about this achievement!).  I am in process of earning my professional photography certification and I couldn't be more excited to be furthering my education and experience within the photography field.

Please feel free to reach out to me via my contact page.  If you are interested in purchasing any of my fine art images or hiring me for a corporate event or booking a private or family session; I'm happy to assist you!
