MWM-Merritt Carey

Merritt-7Merritt Carey_Tenants Harbor Fisherman’s Co-opMerritt with some of the scallops from the farm she co-owns.

Merritt Carey's female Maine icon is Margaret Chase Smith, chosen for her perseverance. I think the same could be said of Merritt herself;  as a sailor on the second all-women team to compete in the Whitbread Around the World Ocean Race, who also holds a law degree, advocates for aquaculture programs in Tenants Harbor, and is a mom of three, among other accomplishments... Well, let's say that perseverance has served her well thus far! I thoroughly enjoyed my opportunity to spend part of an evening with Merritt and am so thankful of her willingness to make time for our shoot. It certainly isn't every portrait session that I take a boat to a float containing a scallop farm, but I would do it again in a heartbeat! Her full interview for MaineStyle can be read here
