Home Interior Needed for large Wall Map

Home interior space needed for a photoshoot of this Antique Oceans World Map. It is large! 9 x 6 feet and comes in 3 panels. It is peel and stick and DOESN’T stick to the wall! You can keep the map if you like or I can take it down when I leave.
The goal is to show it in a lovely and stylish living space so you can see the scale. So a room that has couches or chairs, plants etc. Time would be 1-2 hours.

EMAIL: info@heidikirn.com or text 207-641-5855 with a quick phone pic of the space

Hospitality Branding Photos at Cape Arundel Inn & Resort

Recently did some interior and architecture photography at the Cape Arundel Inn & Resort in Kennebunkport, Maine. The lodging choices there include secluded rooms at the Club House, located a short walk, golf cart ride or drive from the Main House. It is tucked away back there which is nice so I barely even knew it was there! It is situated in a residential neighborhood on 15 wooded acres, this vintage hideaway—formerly the Old Fort Estate—offers guests a restful place to escape Kennebunkport’s summer crowds, yet easy access to all this popular Maine town—and the amazing Kennebunkport resort—have to offer. Days here begin with fresh brewed coffee and pastries on the screened porch. Order lunch without leaving your lounge chair by the heated lap pool. Play billiards and sip cocktails by the stone fireplace at the Club House Lounge before dinner at their Ocean restaurant. This place is a true gem on the Maine coast.

Editorial photography for Maine Women Magazine's Tri for a Cure issue.

I met Sarah at the Eastern Prom in Portland, Maine to photograph her with Elaine’s bike. Read an expert from the July issue of Maine Women Magazine below.

How a breakfast and a bike connected two brave women fighting cancer; Sarah Emerson will ride a bike belonging to the late Elaine Bourne over the finish line at this year’s Tri for a Cure.

In 2017, Sarah Emerson stood on the sidelines at the Tri for a Cure. She was deep into her fight against breast cancer, but she wanted to show her support for the participants. So she made a sign and held it up as women raced past her. “I had chemo on Friday,” the sign said. “You can do this!”

Many of the women running the race stopped to give her back that encouragement. They hugged her, took pictures with her and told her they’d see her on the course the following year. In 2018, Emerson walked into the survivor’s breakfast, an event held the day before the Maine Cancer Foundation’s annual Tri for a Cure. “There were only a few empty seats left and I grabbed one of the last ones,” she says. A few minutes later, another woman slid into the seat next to her and introduced herself as Elaine Bourne.

ourne had been training for the 2018 triathlon for months. In September 2016 she’d been diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer, a fast moving, aggressive form of the disease. She’d viewed that diagnosis into a call for both acceptance and action. She’d bought herself a beautiful new Trek bike and started training for the Tri’s 15-mile bike ride, the 1/3-mile swim and the 5K, all while working full time and pushing back against cancer. But that May, while running another 5K—Bourne was an avid runner and had run several Beach to Beacons—something felt not quite right. She was winded. She had to take breaks from running.  By June, Bourne learned that her cancer had reached Stage 4 and metastasized to her brain.

But she refused to drop out of the race. She reached out to the Maine Cancer Foundation to ask for help figuring out a way to participate that wouldn’t include all three portions of the triathlon. She was matched her with someone who could do the swim and the bike, but her partner would use her own equipment. Bourne’s shiny new Trek would not be used.

 A day on the water with Capt. Catherine Corey, the only woman with Casco Bay’s water taxi service.

Had some much fun meeting Capt. Corey at 4:30am one chilly morning before sunrise. She picked me up at the dock in Portland and took me out cruising Casco Bay as the sun came up! It was a magical morning on the water! Below is the beginning of the Maine Women magazine article about her.

 A day on the water with Capt. Catherine Corey, the only woman with Casco Bay’s water taxi service.

“This is my own boat,” yells Capt. Catherine Corey, wearing a purple rain jacket and a cream-colored knitted hat and commanding a 24-foot enclosed boat she has named Island Girl. “Isn’t she pretty?”

A subcontractor with Fogg’s Water Taxis & Charters, Corey is the only female water taxi captain on Casco Bay. In the busy season (July would be the height of it) she might do upwards of 20 runs a day. Some of her customers are tourists, but others are repeat customers, including islanders, construction crews and people like Portland Public School teacher Hannah Edwards, who taxis to and from Cliff and Peaks Island a couple times a week to meet with students.

After Corey picked up Edwards on a recent morning, she mentions to the teacher that the little school on Cliff is the oldest continuously functioning schoolhouse in the nation, established in 1880. Read the full story on Maine Women Magazine

First look at The Garden Spot at 33 Elmwood, Westbrooks outdoor space

33 Elmwood has just opened the most stunning outdoor space and kicked it off with a private party last night to preview it. There is an outdoor bar (hello summer!) with gorgeous decks, patios, picnic tables, benches with fire pits. Tons of grass beyond the patio space to spread out or for kids to run around while the parents (try to) relax or play corn hole. (Or maybe bocce is more your speed?) Live music was performed last night by Amanda Tubbs and Owen Conforte which kicked those summer vibes up to next level.

33 Elmwood’s menu is full of unexpected takes on typical foods such as the small bite served last night of fried deviled egg with siracha, chive and sea salt and the curried scallop with Brussel leaf and red pepper chutney. And were you even there if you didn’t ‘gram the Pride’s Punch? (A rainbow drink, with rainbow ice cubes with a garnish of a rainbow fruit roll up)

This will definitely be a go-to place for me this summer for hanging out with friends and family. The best part (besides no cooking, cleaning to entertain at home) is if it rains you can just head inside for candle pin bowling! No back up plan needed.

Architectural photography of The Rowan Hotel in downtown Palm Springs

I recently spent the most amazing week spent in Palm Springs, California photographing some amazing residential interiors and architecture as well as some amazing hotels with the incredible photographer, teacher and mentor, Scott Frances. We spent a morning photographing interiors of the stunning hotel, The Rowan, in beautiful downtown Palm Springs. And I thoroughly enjoyed going back at sunset to photograph the exterior. The desert beauty permeates every experience here. The views from the rooms and open decks are breathtaking. Every interior space is so beautifully designed. Palm Springs is most definitely is a desert dreamland.

Maine’s Leading Lady

How Moira Driscoll left New York but held onto her acting career

For an actress who left a thriving New York City career to raise a family in Maine 15 years ago, this double shift of wall-to-wall acting was about as good as it gets. She’s traditionally commuted for roles, nipping down to Massachusetts for parts in the Oscar-winning Spotlight and HBO’s adaptation of Olive Kittredge or taking a combination of Concord Coach and the Fung Wah buses to get to New York for voiceover work or Law & Order auditions. But this winter Driscoll hit a sweet spot in the Maine acting world; being busy in her hometown. Read the full story by Mary Pols here

Refugee Resilience // editorial portrait photographed for Maine Women Magazine

Editorial assignment was to photography M.L without showing her face for Maine Women Magazine.

“[Not having asylum] affects everything,”

Transitions are often difficult, but for M.L., 57, identified here by just her initials because of her legal status, change has involved one brutal awakening after the next. She immigrated with her sons to the United States in December 2014 to escape a political situation that made her afraid for her safety and for her children and their futures. Leaving behind what had been a happy upper-middle class life, M.L. arrived in Maine thinking that her husband would soon join her and their two sons, now 16 and 22. Instead his attempts to get a visa were blocked. M.L. was forced to adjust to single motherhood, immediate poverty and Maine’s coldest season all at once. Read the full story here

Advertising Campaign for MaineGeneral Health

Last fall I worked with the fun and talented team at Garrand Moehlenkamp photographing a commercial advertising campaign for MaineGeneral Health. Over the course of a couple days we photographed for their print and on air campaign: We’re with you.

We kicked off the first photoshoot in a beautiful apple orchard which featured a family and then moved to the second location a playground in Augusta. Perhaps, the funniest thing of the entire process was when the creative director jumped in (literally) between shots to chase the 2 year old around and bribe with fruit snacks to get him to run to his mom, laugh and smile! Thankfully, it worked and we got the shot!

Day two started at The Harold Alfond Center for Cancer Care where we photographed outside three generations in the serene courtyard for this print ad shown below. We wrapped the shoot at the colorful Farmers Market in Waterville. Since it was actually open for business and we did not want to disrupt the market our biggest challenge here was waiting for our moment when we would not capture shopper’s faces in the picture. As a bonus, we all left with some fresh tomatoes and fall vegetables!

Below are a few of my favorite outtakes from the days
