The Picture on the Lid

“The picture on the lid of my beautiful, complicated puzzle is dark on one side and bright warm light on the other. My dark side is mysterious and moody with secrets hiding in the shadows that can barely be seen, some unknown but that’s where the answers lie, that’s where the lessons are learned, that’s where the pain is felt so strongly that the joy on the “other” side can be so completely tasted, felt, rejoiced in. Navy blue sky, a sliver of a waning moon, women dancing naked by the firelight, holding hands and singing.  Fireflies flicker and old wounds lay on the sacred ground. The wo ..read more

I woke before dawn as if from a dream state, maybe from a week of Covid, maybe from other things that have been clouding my mind. All I could hear was silence outside my window. I slipped on cozy clothes and went to the upstairs door window. It was snowing. I lit the candles and made coffee and stared out into the blue darkness watching the flakes flutter by the window. When dawn broke, I bundled up like a little girl, pulling my wool hat down over my forehead and traipsed down, down to the sea. Every rock and crevice ahead of me, all the way to the green gray water was covered with a layer o ..read more

Short and Sweet ~ Water session season in Maine

The 2023 Women In Water session season has come to a close. I look forward to it all year long, plan for it, brainstorm and dream. It’s here and it’s a beautiful thing, and then we put the shallow pool and the cheese cloth away for another year. It’s really much like summers here in Maine, short and sweet. This one has been rather wet too which impacted our water sessions early on as, unlike a regular portrait session, its nice to have that glitter of gorgeous light coming through the trees and reflecting off the water. Pure magic… This morning, my Women In Water session books are gently clos ..read more

Exploring what lights women on Fire after 50!

Back last Oct 1st, at my Empowered Portrait gallery show and celebration, with lots of women within earshot, I declared out loud that I was planning to start a podcast. I had no idea how to navigate doing that but I trusted I could find my way through. With the help of many people and resources, I excitedly launched the “Fire After 50!” podcast on July 28th. “Fire After 50!” is where I sit down with passionate women over the age of 50 and we have intimate and sometimes vulnerable chats about what lights us on fire, what it looks like to listen and trust our intuition, and how we live our lives ..read more

My sister in the water

When your 73 year old sister says, “I want to do a water session with you,” you find an assistant/make-up artist, you set up the pool and you go for it! And after the beautiful session, when she says, “This is the one I want printed for me, or maybe I want a photo album with many of them, you get editing, creating and printing. She is one of the most ambitious, creative, active, brave and loving women I know. And she is my sister. She has always been there for me, and I hope I have for her. I love you to the moon and back, my sister. Behind the scenes These sessions are very personal, unique ..read more

Inching toward Inspiration

Since I wrote this a few days ago, I have felt a surge of inspiration creeping in. I welcome it, finally. It feels hopeful and renewing. I am wondering if its the change in time so we are enjoying more hours of sunshine or maybe its just feeling a little lighter from actually getting my thoughts in writing and then releasing them into the world. We are hosting a fire and a small women’s gathering in Northern Maine to celebrate Spring Equinox this evening, a little early, due to schedules. We will meet after many cold dark months of hibernation, we will share new intentions for the season and ..read more

Patience in the waiting

“In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger- something better, pushing right back.” – Albert Camus Winter hinting at Spring After I published this image with the Camus quote on socials this morning, I realized I have more to say, more to feel, more to express. These past few months have been strange ones for me. Really, since Jan 1, when I know many people begin hibernating physically and emotionally, I tend to leap into new projects ..read more

Reposting this because after 5 years, this is still one of my favorite days! Nanette Faye Photography Fiddle-playing gypsy She tells me she would have worn her gypsy outfit if she didn’t think I might think she was crazy. Are you kidding me? She had me at gypsy! In a tiny Northern Maine town, with her backyard overlooking Mount Katahdin, this gypsy-spirited woman makes her life exactly as she chooses. She has lived on this farm for many years, first in a tent, then a stock trailer, and now in a tiny house which once was only a basement. She fills it with her art, and her animals that a ..read more

A Poem of Self Compassion
Nanette Faye Photography
by Nanette
2y ago
Many years ago my therapist gave me an audio CD of David Whyte’s, Poetry of Self Compassion, on which he reads poetry and gives his insights. I rarely listen to anything when I am driving, except my own thoughts, as my car is one of my very favorite places to be alone, think, create, brainstorm and just enjoy the scenery without outside influence. But when I do tire of my own thoughts, I listen to one thing, this CD. It’s a compilation of poems written by several poets. Many of the poems really resonate with me. This CD is the gift that keeps on giving. Each time I listen to these poems read b ..read more
