happiness is | Londonderry, NH Family Photographer

Happiness is being three years old.

TMblog7

Oh sweet T… I have been photographing her since she was just a few weeks old (before my blogging days!) and every year after that (see here, here and here). And just like that she’s three years old.

TMblog1

This was one of the very few sessions I’m taking this spring (see my note at the very bottom) and her mom was ever-so-patient in working with my crazy schedule and contending with Mother Nature’s not-so-nice ways this spring. I lost track of how many times we rescheduled, but having landed on a beautifully sunny day and catching the last bit of apple blossoms made the wait seem worth it. If you hadn’t figured it out yet – these were taken at one of my favorite locations, Mack’s Apples.

Three years can be a tough age to photograph… well, a tough age in general (at least it has proven to be in my family thus far!) You can end up with total cooperation or a total lack thereof when trying to get this rambunctious and defiant age in front of the camera. Sometimes just being silly, dancing, spinning, and laughing is the best approach to a session with this age. As you can see, Miss T happily danced and spun at every request.

There wasn’t anything I didn’t love about this session. It was so good seeing you again M family! She steals my heart every time! TMblog9

A friendly reminder that I am not booking any new sessions right now beyond what is already on my calendar while my family moves into our new home. Happy Spring (finally!)

all things beautiful | Goffstown, NH Children’s Photographer

This session was a mix of many wonderful things — beautiful baby, amazing location, vintage flair, girly accessories and even a bit rustic! If I were to sit here and name some of my favorite things, you could find them in these photos. A huge amount of credit needs to go to this sweet girl’s mama — she put SO much time and effort into planning the outfits, the accessories, and selecting the utmost PERFECT location. If you have not ever been to Apotheca Flower & Tea Shoppe in Goffstown, NH, I suggest you drop whatever you are doing and head there right now… (or in the morning since there’s a good chance I’m posting this late at night!)  Reflective of the style of this shoot, Apotheca is a mix of all things beautiful, vintage and unique. From their selection of teas, food and drinks, to their AMAZING floral design, jewelry and decor, to the cozy little nooks all around the shop, this place has it all. You will never want to leave — I promise. They were so awesome during our shoot – basically letting us spread out everywhere and use all of their cool furniture. I think I could shoot there a hundred times and still keep finding different things to use. Sending out a huge THANK YOU to them! Without further ado… the birthday girl…

KMblog3KMblog4KMblog5KMblog6Little miss is usually a very happy, smiley baby — she was a bit serious this day but part of me is glad for the expressions here – they just seem to fit.

KMblog7

We really enjoyed going all over the shop – so many wonderful places to sit. I can imagine some people spend hours there reading and sipping their favorite drink. The regulars poured in and out while we moved around taking photos all over.

Okay, can we just talk about this outfit for a minute??? GET OUT. I LOVE IT. And on a whim, I grabbed this bonnet from my prop stash at the last second, it must have been fate. KMblog10(5)

Lovin’ on her bear.

No first birthday is complete without a cake! Yet again, Chickadee Hill Cakes steals my heart… and my waistline (I got to take some of the cake home! ) As suspected, little miss was very dainty with her cake and there was definitely no smashing… but she did enjoy the frosting! (As did I, best buttercream ever!!)

Happy Birthday sweet girl. I have so enjoyed watching you grow over the the past year (here, here, here, and here!) You are a blessing to so many! xoxo

bundle of joy | Barrington, NH Newborn Photographer

Remember this beautiful mama and her perfectly round belly? Well, the sweet babe inside has finally made her appearance into this great big world. Meet sweet H. She LOVES her mama.

mbblog1

Typically, I like to start newborn sessions with the beanbag poses and sleepy shots, but little miss wanted nothing to do with sleeping when I first got there. So to keep things moving we took the opportunity to go into her GORGEOUS nursery and do some lifestyle shots.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI don’t do lifestyle newborn sessions very often but I LOVE how they came out, and now thinking that I may need to do more of these! It is a tremendous amount of work for a typical newborn session because of all the ‘stuff’ that is needed — beanbag, lighting, backdrops, blankets, props, headbands, hats, space heater, flooring. Despite being my littlest clients, they are the most amount of work — so just strolling into her nursery and taking these shots without worrying about all the ‘stuff’ was so nice!

mbblog3

Look at that eye contact!mbblog4OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Mama worked very hard on her nursery and came it together beautifully! It was Pinterest worthy for sure! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAmbblog12Once we were done in the nursery, miss H finally began dozing off … is she gorgeous or what??! Look at those yummy back rolls!

It was nearing the end our session and she was REALLY sleepy at this point (go figure!), we all smiled when she put her hand on her face like this… such a long day for a little peanut!

Hope you enjoyed your lengthy sneak peek. Welcome to the world Miss H! You are loved! mbblog23

baby, it’s cold outside | Manchester, NH Maternity Photographer

This post is a bit overdue – as are most things in my life these days! This is my sister-in-law. She and her husband are expecting their first bouncing baby boy in just about a month. We totally lucked out with this session, because even though it was bone-chilling cold (like REALLY!), the snow showers that were predicted for that day held off until later… I’m sure you are thinking, but wait, I see snow?? You can thank Photoshop for that. I have done a session in the real snow before (see here), but admittedly, Photoshop snow is much easier to deal with!

APBlog1

Despite the cold, we had a lot of fun and laughs. You can see in the middle far left, they tried out some new poses I had never done before;-)APBlog2

Glowing mama-to-be…APBlog3

Grammy to this little bundle came along for a few photos too… she is very excited to welcome her newest grandson! (She already has three REALLY cute grandkids – *cough, cough*my kids*).
APBlog4APBlog5

Mama and daddy had a little fun with some props that they brought. Mama-to-be loves knitting and this little one will definitely not be lacking in handmade items. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

For all the silly moments and laughs between these two, there were some seriously sweet loving going on. This baby will be so blessed with such fun and loving parents.APBlog7APBlog8

One of my favs… the purple shawl was handmade by mama-to-be’s aunt, and is a ‘prayer shawl’ which was also worn during parts of her wedding – a family keepsake for sure!
APBlog9APBlog10APBlog11

You two are going to be awesome parents. I can’t wait to meet my very first nephew!

APBlog12

While I have you ‘here’, my PSA for today is to share that I am currently not taking any new sessions. My family is in the middle of selling our home and moving (again – but this time to our forever home!) I have only booked a few sessions in the next few months and will not be taking anything else until further notice. If you need help finding a photographer, please reach out – I’m lucky enough to know many awesome photographers in the area!

winter baby | Manchester, NH Maternity Photographer

There really wasn’t a better way for me to kick off my 2014 session than with this beautiful maternity shoot for a friend. Originally, this was planned before the holidays, but that old bitty Mother Nature forced us to reschedule several times – such is life in New England! When the day finally came and the forecast was… well… so-so, we decided to go for it anyway, the little girl that they are so eagerly expecting won’t be inside much longer! The sun was teasing me all day, going behind thick clouds and then shining brightly. By our session time, we were met with thick, blue clouds that actually looked like snow clouds, but the sun kept poking out in between. I’ve gotta say though, I love how the blue sky with touches of sunset turned out in these images!

A perfectly, perfect glowing mama-to-be. This little girl is already blessed.

I really love maternity shoots, they top the list for one of my favorite types of sessions. They’re usually very fun and filled with excitement and splashes of romance. mbblog3mbblog5mbblog7mbblog8

This one is a favorite…mbblog9mbblog10mbblog11And here we have the current ‘baby’ in the family. A lot will change in her life over the coming months but I’m sure she’ll quickly find her place and only add to the love that will be given to the sweet baby girl on the way.

mbblog12mbblog13

See what I mean with the sky? Love…mbblog14M& P, it’s no surprise that you totally rocked your session, even the pooch added the perfect touch! I can’t wait to meet your baby girl in a few months — weeks!! I hope you enjoyed your sneak peeks! mbblog15
