Hi, I am Megan Edmonds!
I am the owner and photographer of Blessed Day Photography. I am the former owner and artistic director of Portsmouth School of Ballet in Portsmouth, NH from 2013-2017. After selling my dance studio, I decided to take on photography as a way to continue to pursue my creativity and work with wonderful people! I am committed to making sure that everyone feels comfortable and has a great experience!
I love to work with everyone, and I am especially great with children! I live in Maine with my husband and two fabulous daughters! I also continue to teach dance as a guest instructor throughout the New England area.
I believe that kindness and a smile are two of the biggest assets you can possess in life! I love photography that is clean, creative and beautiful! You can see my style in my work. I love the editing process as much as I love taking photos!
I thrive in stressful situations. I love photographing events, weddings, large families, dance studios, dance competitions! You name it!
I am open and accepting of all couples, races, genders, and religions.
I look forward to spending time with you and meeting you soon!
