After lots of hard work I'm ready to share my new blogsite! Please visit Thank you!

Zach's 1yr Session | Southern NH Children's Photographer

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Sniff, sniff. Z was my first baby in my baby program, what an honor to capture his first year for his parents. He is such a cute and happy little boy, I always knew we would have fun and looked forward to our sessions every 3 months. It was a very sticky hot day when we shot his 1 year session, but he is still all smiles!

Graham | 3 Years Old | Newburyport, Ma Children's Photographer

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Ahhhh, summer. I miss you! That's the nice thing about being a good 7 months behind on my blog... I get to revisit summer as there is snow on the ground and lots more forecasted to come. I was quite pregnant when we had Graham's 3 year session and now I have a 6 month old in my lap and banging on the keyboard. If there are any typo's, I'm blaming him ;) So, Graham is a little love of a guy, who I have had the pleasure of photographing for 3 years now. There is no bigger compliment than parents who trust me with capturing their child year after year!! Graham and I have gotten pretty tight, actually, and he wanted to take me home with him after his session! He's got some smooth moves, not that he needs him with those bright blue eyes and that delectable dimple! 

A belated Happy Birthday and a whole lotta gratitude

Tuesday, August 7, 2012

In preparing for the birth of our third baby boy, the birthday of my little business slipped right by me unnoticed. I am regretfully bad with birthdays, and this was no exception! It's not so much that I want to wish a Happy Birthday to myself, that would be kinda lame, no? I want to send a whole lotta gratitude out there to all of you who have encouraged and supported me since I decided to take my love for photography and build a little business out of it. First to my Hubby for being uber-supportive, for being the techie nerd that he is (said with love) and his help on getting my site and blog ready, for always making time for me to commit to my camera (and Photoshop). My family and my friends for encouraging me when I thought I just wasn't good enough. All of you old friends who became my clients, and new clients who became my friends, for choosing and trusting me to capture your families for you. What a complete honor! All of the people who "liked" my Facebook page and take a second to "like" a photo every now and again. It is all appreciated!  I also have to give some big shout-outs to some fellow photographers/friends who are super-talented, much more established than myself, who never hesitated to give me guidance, advice, and encouragement and were just all around gracious about it. Kelly from Photography by Kelly Klatt, Sarah from My Four Hens Photography, Shannon from Shannon Payne Photography and Hana of Hana Portrait Design ; I've seen some meowing and scratching in our little photography world, but certainly not from any of you. Much love to you all!

Okay, before this gets any more Oscar-speechy, I'm gonna stop.

Oh! One more thing... Happy (belated) Birthday to Jenny Schule Photography. There, I said it. Yes... I am lame!

And because a blog post isn't a blog post without a photo, here's a recent one of one of my loveable little devils! He recently got a haircut and a new fresh/big boy attitude to suit it!

Sweet Bella | 6 months | Chelmsford, MA baby photographer

In the year since I started my business, I began to realize that my favorite age to photograph is 6-8 months. Miss Bella did nothing to disprove that. It's during these kinds of sessions when my work truly does not feel like work. I just love this baby age, and love capturing it! Having begun photographing Bella while still in her Mama's tummy, I just can't believe she's already at this age!

As a side-note, Please imagine a very pregnant woman, laying on the floor/ground half in the house and half out the front door to get these first few photos. I hope Bella's parents didn't get too many strange inquiries from neighbors!

The Livingstone Family | MA Family Photographer

Saturday, July 28, 2012

What a sweet bunch. I adore this family. Mom is an old friend and co-worker of mine. I know her and her hubby to be a very funny pair, so I knew this would be a fun and chill session, and I was looking forward to seeing them again and meeting the new additions to their brood. Mom was a little worried that her precious daughter may not be in the mood for photos, but my gosh did she surprise us. She was sitting pretty and smilin' the whole time! Her 6 year old was my little buddy, and the sweet little guy, just reminded me of my boys at that age. Especially in this first photo with the two little teeth, the drool, and the fistful of grass!

Happy Father's Day!

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

I'm a little late with my Father's Day wishes, but I had to wait to share this until my Hubby saw it. And I have a wonderful way of losing track of time lately, with 2 months until the birth of our third son, all the normal operations that go along with raising 2 boys, work, I've also decided to update pretty much the whole house. Would you say I'm nesting?! So please forgive me these days if my correspondence leaves something to be desired ;)

This was a fun idea I totally and shamelessly hijacked from a photographer friend of mine, and put our own little spin on. She took pictures of her two little boys in their dad's work shirt and shoes, and they were adorable. At our house, it's working with Daddy that gets the kids excited. Even when my oldest, now 5, was just a toddler, any time my husband had tools in his hand, Ethan would walk up behind him and give him a pat on the back. Now, both boys tell him all the time that he's doing a good job. And of course they always want to join in on the fun. So the boys obliged to take a few fun photos for Daddy, wearing his hat he always wears when he works, pencil behind the ear, and of course the tools and the "tractor". It used to be that after a job well done, Daddy would nap in the hammock, but with two boys naps don't come easy. Now the reward comes in the form of beer... and they kids thought they were so funny with Daddy's big beer bottles!

Happy Father's Day to THE best Dad I could have dreamed of for my sons, and to all the other great dads out there!
