Portsmouth NH Micro-Wedding

Jessa + Jason! Portsmouth NH Micro-wedding

I love meeting people who love to laugh as much as I do. Jessa and Jason? They might love to laugh even more than I do! While I was only at this Portsmouth NH Micro-wedding for an hour, I spent much of it laughing with them! I’ve historically done smaller, shorter weddings. But in the past years (even pre-covid), I’m seeing a trend of couples wanting coverage for the important parts – Ceremony, family photos,

Remember when you were as tiny as a flower?

Ranunculus. (Flower humor) This little peanut showed up a full month early for her Newmarket NH Newborn Session and at her 9-day photoshoot, weighed in at 4 pounds 4 oz! Her super crafty mom had a few ideas for photos and one of them was to use some of the florals from one of their congratulations bouquets. I love how she fits right in with the length of them and the floral wrap that matches,

Concord NH At Home Newborn Photos

Folded fingers and folded toes.

Don’t believe me? Just look at this beautiful babe and her Concord NH At Home Newborn Photos! Not only has she already mastered the Mr. Burns folded hands, but she grasps her toes with her other toes! This sweet love is the daughter of one of my favorite couples and their Portsmouth Harbor Events wedding! The craftiness and talent for making things, and making them uniquely personal, continued with the plethora of blankets and quilts

Kathy + George: Married! York Harbor Inn Summer Wedding

Never have I ever… Had so much fun at a York Harbor Inn Summer Wedding! Booking a wedding with me can happen in many iterations. We could meet years in advance, have an engagement session, grab a drink to talk about the wedding timeline, spend time before the ceremony taking photos and hang out through bustling the dress, toasts, and those first wild songs of open dance floor. or We could email a little, talk

Summertime Wight Barn Sturbridge MA Queer Wedding

Oh the FUN we had at this Wight Barn Sturbridge MA Queer Wedding! The bright blue sky was amplified by perfectly puffy clouds as Emma and Steph got ready in the same space, but divided by a barn door. They’d seen their various pieces and accessories, but not the whole look altogether. They shared a quick conversation through the door but waited for the first look for their full reveal. Steph was in place and

Massachusetts At Home Newborn Family Photos

What’s an at-home family newborn session, anyway?

Well, I would say it’s like it sounds, but that’s because I’ve been doing it for a while now. In the case of this, and most Massachusetts At Home Newborn Family Photos, it’s a mix of feedings, photos and fun! I generally try and start with photos of the whole family, all the siblings, and fur pets. We can work in the nursery if you have one, in a big pig pile on the bed

NH Winter Family Photos

More snow, please!

That’s literally not something I’d EVER thought I’d say. (Especially being that it’s August right now) but man, sunny NH Winter Family Photos in fresh fallen snow? It kinda sings to me! These two little dudes (and their parents) were super excited to show me around their new backyard! The super tall pines run along the river. The various slopes that I’m sure will become daredevil sled runs as the boys get older. It’s a

What if it’s going to rain?

Ya’ll let’s talk about the weather. Spring, Summer, Fall, Exeter NH Winter Family Photos and any session you’ve got scheduled. If it’s going to pour, or be too windy, or just too freaking cold (or hot) I will 100% be in touch about rescheduling. There’s a lot of weather conditions that work for photos, like this beautiful December afternoon, where you can get sunset photos before you even have dinner. But if the weather’s going

North Conway NH LGBT Wedding-0050

Becky + Dewie: Married! North Conway NH LGBT Wedding

It was a beautiful day for this North Conway NH LGBT Wedding. Beautiful puffy clouds floated in the sky as they had a ceremony tailored just for them. Becky + Dewie had a June 2020 wedding planned. Living in Florida and planning a destination wedding is tricky enough, but when you’re thrown a global curveball, it can be even crazier. These two handled it with ease and grace. They knew their love was one for
