A photo of you smiling should be because you are genuinely happy from within ~Sharyn
Hi! Let me introduce myself--I am Sharyn Peavey--artist, photojournalist, dancer, teacher, mentor, advocate, friend, mother, and sister who hails from Maine. I began my professional career in 1994 as a photographer in Baltimore, Maryland. I have since traveled the country to photograph couples, families, and businesses. Most recently, I have been focusing my time and travel in New England and New York, honing my craft and mentoring up-and-coming photographers to grow in their love and knowledge of photography. I am a strong believer in teaching the value of creating quality and memorable photo experiences on both sides of the camera lens.
I currently live in Pownal (aka the Freeport area) with my 12-year-old daughter, Lucia, and our adopted Rottweiler, Pepper. I am a member of the Green Memorial AME Zion Church at Munjoy Hill in Portland, Maine and perform as part of a Salsa and Bachata dance team at the Alma Cubana Dance Company. And lest I have too much free time, my family provides endless entertainment and subject matter.
After 14 years in public service, Sheryl jumped ship to come assist me with weddings, bookkeeping, marketing, design and moral support. I like to refer to her as my "A-sister-ant." I also like being boss of my big sister.
