Natalya DeSena Photography: A Preview of My Shoot with Blue Spoon Restaurant in Portland, Maine


I had the pleasure of shooting with Blue Spoon a couple weeks ago. The photos below are part one of a two series shoot. I will be shooting with them again in March/April after their renovations are complete. I can’t wait to capture more of the restaurant’s story, the team, and the updated design in a few months.

Blue Spoon was bought by Liz Koenigsberg and her husband Will Lavey last August. These two are extremely talented. Liz used to own Petite Jacqueline for six years and Will worked for very well known restaurants in Denver, CO.

At Blue Spoon they take pride in their ingredients and they source from the best: Black Kettle Farm, Laughingstock Farm, Stone Cipher Farm, Fishbowl Farm, Freedom Farm, Valley View Farm eggs and meats, Wee Bit Farm beef and pork, Lankin’s Gorges Cheeses, Woolever Farm lamb, and Rick Tibbet’s mushrooms.

I cant wait to share more of what this restaurant is all about later this spring!
