Be kind, like the trees.

We laughed our way through their snowy maternity session and then I eagerly awaited the news. Although it was no surprise, the delicate details I captured in her nursery during her newborn photography at home in NH session were so perfectly thought out and welcoming of this new baby girl!

Her parents are wonderfully attentive to each other and full of laughter and compassion.

I have no doubt that this precious little girl, so wanted and so loved before she even existed will be raised with kindness and love.

At the end of their newborn session they asked if they could incorporate some of the journey of having this beautiful girl in their photos and I was happy to oblige!

If I’m being honest it was a little overwhelming seeing their dreams come true and freezing that moment in time for them!

Trees are the kindest things I know
They do no harm, they simply grow
And spread a shade for sleepy cows
And gather birds among their boughs.

Trees give us fruit in leaves above,
And wood to make our houses of.
Leaves to burn on Hallowee’en,
And in the Spring new buds of green.
Trees are the kindest things I know.

Emily & Adam: A Queer Elopement at Wells Reserve at Laudholm

Emily and Adam had the most perfect early spring queer elopement at Wells Reserve at Laudholm. Just a week earlier we’d had a foot of snow, but it melted away just in time for this beautiful ceremony. Eloping at Wells Reserve at Laudholm is a great way to celebrate your love with your partner in a beautiful and secluded setting.
