New Hampshire Senior Portrait Photographer | {Moriah}

Moriah is the cutest, curly haired, most bubbly senior I’ve had the pleasure of working with. She is a book lover and a very talented writer, and asked to bring her typewriter along to our session! I was pumped! We had fun exploring the forest and chatting about her plans for after graduation. What an exciting time in life! I’m thrilled for you, Moriah! Thanks for a fun afternoon :)

New Hampshire Engagement Photographer | UNH Campus {Pete & Melissa}

Melissa and Pete met as students while attending the University of New Hampshire. Their wedding is in August of 2014, and Melissa really wanted to have their engagement photos taken as well. This always gets me a little {a lot} giddy, because it is a perfect opportunity for couples to get a little more comfortable in front of the camera before their big day. We had so much fun walking around the beautiful UNH campus on a perfect autumn afternoon, getting to know each other and reminiscing about their days as college students and how they met. The fall is my absolute favorite time of year for taking photos, and this session was no different. The colorful autumn leaves made for a gorgeous backdrop, and the early evening light was the icing on the cake ;-) Thanks for a beautiful afternoon, Melissa and Pete! See you in August!

New Hampshire Family Photographer | {O Family at Carter Hill Orchard // Round One}

This family rules! We met up for another fun session of family photos {check out our first session here} – this time we got to play in the apple orchard at Carter Hill! This is the apple orchard that I have wonderful childhood memories of – it is just so beautiful and kid-friendly. And they recently added apple cider donuts to their list of goodies, so that’s kind of a big deal. Anyway, it was crazy to see how quickly these two kiddos grew over the last year. And what is super awesome is that they are expecting a little brother in a few months! Woo! We enjoyed a splendid afternoon frolicking throughout the orchard, showing off our apples and kissing mommy’s belly. Little man will be here before we know it, and maybe we’ll even get to play at the apple orchard next year ;-)

ps. this is “Round One” because we played at Carter Hill Orchard the next year! Check it out here!

Maine Wedding Photographer | Wells Reserve at Laudholm {Nathaniel & Hannah}

Nathaniel and Hannah’s day was nothing short of amazing. Both the wedding ceremony and reception took place at Wells Reserve at Laudholm – a 2,250 acre gem of protected land in Wells, Maine. This venue was a photographer’s dream – for real, one of my all time favorites. Hannah’s carefully chosen details added a personal touch that made the wedding so special – the country floral bouquets {thanks to the AMAZING Frinklepod Farm}, the seating postcards, the large display of photos hung on clothesline {love}, the {very real deal} photo booth… a perfect dessert table, and the paper lanterns all over the barn {perhaps you’ll notice, I kind of enjoyed taking pictures of them}! Hannah got ready inside the Farm House and the ceremony took place on the lawn just outside. It was quite the tear-jerker of a ceremony – which included a Beatles medley of love songs performed by her two brothers. It was a glorious July day, with perfect blue skies and a slight breeze. After the ceremony, I had the pleasure of stealing the bride and groom to take some photos on the Laudholm Beach, and we even rode there in style – via golf cart! Their obvious affection for one another made photographing them a breeze. They are such kind and genuine people, and so very obviously made for one another. After some yummy {understatement} food {courtesy of Dandelion Catering}, some classy dancing took place {thanks to On Cue DJ Services} in the rustic barn as the sun set on a picture perfect day. I am super thankful to Nathaniel and Hannah for having me share in their love-filled day. Enjoy!

New Hampshire Family Photographer | Hannah Dustin Memorial {Seamus & Friends}

Seamus was just days from turning the big O-N-E during our lovely photoshoot. It was a wonderful New Hampshire summer evening with absolutely perfect lighting. And I always love portrait sessions at the train tracks! Seamus’ mommy brought some vintage chairs that I drooled over, and I was thrilled to meet everyone! This photoshoot was one of my favorite family shoots to date! Happy almost-birthday, Seamus!
