won’t you be my neighbor | Auburn, NH Children’s Photographer

We moved about 4 months ago… we plopped our house behind another and basically stole their wooded backyard view. Jerks, right? It was the last lot left in our neighborhood and we SO wanted it, it was perfect for our little family. The whole time I’m thinking, “the neighbors are going to hate us!” As it turns out, the neighbors have three kiddos just about the same ages as ours, and to put it mildly — they’re awesome (and they don’t hate us!) Our kids became fast friends always letting us play on their swing set, and our husbands play basketball and drink beers together (and are currently devising a plan to put in a pool and turn our houses into some sort of BBQing, beer drinking, basketball playing, swimming compound, ummm… ) Anyway, I digress, here’s their littlest guy, and he just turned ONE! Normally, I don’t shoot in December because it’s just too busy with the holidays, but since they could just pop over while my kids were still around, it was pretty easy… (sort of like this drive-by mini here.) Does he not have the most beautiful blue eyes??


This was one of my favs… so sweet.LMBlog3

You may not have been able to tell, but this is sort of how the session went… he just learned to walk and was all like, “SEE YA!!”… and his mama had to return him to the set  a million times. Hey, I’d be like that too if I just figured out how my legs work and was having portraits done in another kid’s playroom.

You can see evidence of my kids’ playroom in the photos below… BUT we got some cute smirks so we just went with it:-)LMBlog6LMBlog7

And these two below just make me smile… “GET ME OUT OF HERE”  and  “Nah, it’s all good”.LMBlog8

Happy Birthday sweet little boy! I can’t wait to see you grow over the years! LMBlog9

frosty morning | Londonderry, NH Children’s Photographer

Wow… November. How did that happen? It has been such a busy year for me personally and time is just flying by, but I’m so happy to sneak in sessions when I can — even if on frosty November mornings. It was was so great catching up with this family, it had been over a year since our last session. Little C has gotten so big and ‘more boy’ and ‘less baby’ — which is good since he’ll be a big brother soon!

If you ever wonder how sessions go with three year olds — they start out like this, all buried in mom’s coat… and then…

CBBlog1… two minutes later, they’re all “let me show you how loud I can yell!” This guy was a ham and did SOOO well.

Good luck choosing your fav, because I couldn’t!

For some reason, I just love this photo below… not set up or anything, they all just walked away from a family pose like this.CBBlog10CBBlog11(5)CBBlog11CBBlog12CBBlog13

It was so nice seeing all of you! I hope you enjoyed your extra long sneak peeks!

bit of whimsy | Auburn, NH Children’s Photographer

This shoot was a little different for me and simply done just for fun. And despite the fact that I didn’t have an entirely willing participant, I’m happy with how it came out. And look at me, blogging it like a big girl! I RARELY (or ever!?) blog anything just for fun or of my own kids? (guess I need to look back to see if I have!) Meet my daughter. She’s 4 going on 16. You could say that she is the epitome of sassy. When I finally splurged on a Tutu Du Monde outfit, I told her about it and how I wanted to do a REALLY special shoot with her – she was all game. But alas when the day arrived she gave me about 5 mins of her time and then told me she’d rather play with our neighbors. Such is life with a 4 year old. Never fear, dear friends — this outfit will be with me for a long time so I’m hoping to get some other sweet girls in it!  Thank goodness for those 5 minutes and her semi-attention, because I was able get a few shots that I will forever cherish.


You can see our sweet neighbor in a few of these, I had a separate little mini shoot with her as well, which I hope to post at some point. These two have only known each other just over a month – they are peas in a pod. I sort of can’t wait to watch them grow up as friends– and then whip out photos like these when they’re teenagers and in the Jimmy Fallon “ew” and “oh my gah” stage. They’ll either love me or hate me. For now, I will suck in every last ounce of sweetness they will give me. I love her. I love them. THIS is why I love photography.

drive by mini | Auburn, NH Family Photographer

What’s up with the name of this post?? Well, it sort of went down just like that. A friend who has been wanting some updated photos for quite a while texted me to see if I was around because it was a perfect autumn evening for photos. I was home and actually toting my camera for my kids and neighbors’ kids as they played in the yard, so she piled her family in the car and was at my house in 10 minutes — and when I say she arrived at the BEST and most precise time for evening photos, I’m not kidding… the light can not get any better than that my friends!


Get out of here with these two perfect kids! GAH. They were so good. We busted these photos out in 10 minutes and they didn’t make a peep as we hurried through poses to catch the last bit of sun.


Maybe you’re saying — Wow, did they walk through the woods to find that awesome spot? NOPE. This was literally on the side of my driveway (get it? drive by mini? ♥) We have massive amounts of landscaping to do at our new house but I got to tell ya, we have these amazing pockets of light and woods and just all things I love for photos… so when I’m planning my landscaping over the coming years, you can pretty much guarantee that I will be planning little photo sets for each deliciously lit spot. I might even shed a tear or two when these fallen trees go, they make a perfect bench… unlike my husband who will probably cheer while they’re being heaved into a wood chipper.BeckBlog3


“I want a mini session! I want a mini session!” I know I’ll get a few inquiries after this post so I’ll just say it right now, I don’t typically book random mini sessions. I have found that they aren’t entirely cost effective for me and they go against the way I like to shoot and run my business. In most cases, even if I keep the session short (which I have a hard time doing since I’m a huge over-shooter!), I still spend nearly the same amount of time traveling/editing/posting/managing orders as a full session but I’m getting paid less! And I’m not a huge fan of back-to-back minis either, I know some photographers who will do 10 or more in a day — and that’s just not me. I like spending time with families, letting kids warm up to me, finding cool spots, walking around, etc., without worrying about my next 15 minute time slot! And let’s talk about light for a minute… golden hour, that’s my favorite time to shoot — AN HOUR! Which makes it nearly impossible to shoot all day. And can we say, stress? Yuck. I like shooting, I LOVE it, I like looking for light and at your pretty faces, not at my watch for my next time slot. So, there you have it, I’ve never had a ‘day of minis’ in the past.

I’m making no promises but here’s the deal, I live in an awesome neighborhood now and there are SO many good places to shoot — never thought my driveway would become a favorite spot – weird! In any case, shooting in or near my neighborhood eliminates travel time for me which is a big deal since I’m trying to minimize time away from my family, so I’ll be re-thinking this whole idea of mini sessions and likely trying to work it into my 2015 plan/pricing or find some sort of middle ground so that it doesn’t compromise the way I like to run my sessions. Hopefully that’s a glimmer of hope for those of you who have been trying to get on my calendar!

ruffles & heels | Auburn, NH Baby Photographer

Are you sitting down?? This is a long one, FULL of so much cute and squishy. I don’t even know where to begin with this sweet girl — this might be my biggest over-share ever, but I don’t care, the world needs to see this beauty and her AMAZING mom. You can feel the love exuding between these two and filling the room. She was all smiles for our whole session. Six month olds are easily one of my favorite ages to photograph!


Mom wanted to make sure we got a photo showing those itty bitty pearly whites — and there they are! HBlog2HBlog4HBlog5HBlog6HBlog7HBlog8HBlog9REPLACE


Because shooting outdoors is always my preference when possible, we managed to sneak in a few minutes on this gorgeous (but chilly!) day and I am SOOO happy we did. These ended up being some of my favorites even though they were shot in only the last 5 minutes before Miss H started showing signs of needing a nap! HBlog18HBlog19HBlog20HBlog21(5)HBlog21(6)Best mom ever. xoxo.HBlog21
