Lesbian LGBTQ couple elope Oceanside at their campsite

Eloping in NH: Your Guide to the BEST New Hampshire Elopement

New Hampshire is a magical place to get married, but did you know it’s also a great place to elope? Up until a handful of years ago, you would only hear about an elopement in terms of people running off to the courthouse or NYC when they eloped. Elopements and small, intimate weddings have become more common in the past decade. People (my folks, for sure) started celebrating their love in their own way— In

Southern NH Winter Engagement Session

Ch.ch.ch.cherry cola!

‘Wear layers and maybe bring a blanket’ was my advice to this Southern NH Winter Engagement Session couple. Their response? “We love the cold!!” They also love the big charm of a small country town! We met at the Newfields boat launch, and then took our adventure up the hill to the “downtown” of it all. The cutest of all country stores awaited and they popped inside to purchase a six-pack of their favorite, a

Christina + Ejay: York Harbor Inn Late Summer Wedding

As I watched Christina and Ejay finally get their first dance at their long-awaited York Harbor Inn Late Summer Wedding, I welled up with tears. I was so completely overwhelmed with how lovely they were as people, as a couple, and how amazingly surrounded with support and friendship they were. But most of all, I was overwhelmed that this was my job and I was lucky enough to work with them. Their fantastic and fun

Exeter NH Springtime Family Photos

Springtime.. but also that time it snowed on me in the middle of May. Ok, it wasn’t real snow… but bottom line, I had an absolute blast with these Exeter NH Springtime Family Photos. It’s so fun to see how families interact and connect. And this family does so on all levels! I joined them at their very lovely property. Every corner was another great spot for photos! We started on the green grass on

NH Seabrook Beach Family Photos

One of my favorite things about NH Seabrook Beach Family Photos is helping littles, (and hello, sometimes bigs too) come out of their shells. This early morning May session started off a little quiet and unsure. There was a little chill in the air. The girls were still a little sleepy. And they definitely weren’t sure what the deal was with this crazy lady following them to the beach 😂 Once we found common ground,

Vicki + Stephen: A Late Summer Cliff House Wedding

My love affair with the Cliff House is pretty well documented at this point. My love affair with Vicki + Stephen and their Summer Cliff House Wedding? That’s a whole new chapter! As I drove to the wedding, it very unexpectedly started raining. I looked at my radar and was dismayed, however – it looked like it was going to disappear as quickly as it had appeared. And disappeared it did! It knew better than

BFF 40th Birthday Celebration Session York Maine

Stop everything you’re doing right now and check out these BFF 40th Birthday Celebration Session York Maine photos. Pay no attention the sh*tty grammar and sentence structure of that previous sentence and just do it. Then, once you’ve done it, decide who YOU’RE going to have a session that is simply to be silly, have fun, drink white claws, and eat cupcakes. Eat cupcakes off mannequin arms even. I am slowly, but surely, seeing a

Now it’s time for their York Maine Cake Smash + Family Photos to commemorate little man’s first birthday! That also means our second baby’s first-year series has come to an end 😩 (But you can relive the baby bump and baby snuggles from our at-home Southern Maine maternity + newborn session here 🥳) For his first birthday,

Portsmouth NH Spring Maternity Session + Newborn Photos

Portsmouth NH Spring Maternity Session + Newborn Photos

From teeny tiny NH newborn photos, to traveling toddler, to big sister to be, this little girl has won over my heart countless times. But my favorite might be the Portsmouth NH Spring Maternity Session + Newborn Photos. More specifically, the rainboots and pigtails she rocked for their Family Maternity Session at Prescott Park this spring. Just prior to that session, well, I suppose about 6 months prior to that session, we were hanging out

Baby L! Rye NH Newborn Photos

A BIIIIIG stretch and a little grumble. The cuteness in these Rye NH Newborn Photos is over the top. This chunky baby boy is the love of all. But perhaps especially, big brother. Brothers.⁠⁠There’s a bond that starts early with siblings. ⁠⁠Will they beat the crap out of each other eventually? For sure.⁠⁠Will they fight over space and toys, and the air they’re breathing? Most likely.⁠⁠Will they drive you crazy with their bickering one second
