Sweet Little Charlotte | NH Newborn Photographer

Sweet little Charlotte was just 5 pounds when I came to photograph her.  After an early delivery and scary start she is healthy, happy and SO well loved! Her big brother and sister adore her and she is fortunate to be blessed with such a loving family. She is the most peaceful little sleeper and smiles a lot in her sleep. Adorable.

A Bohemian Spring Evening | NH Children’s Photographer

After more than six months of cold winter weather, we finally got warm weather here in New Hampshire!  We are all like butterflies erupting from our cocoons.  Spreading our wings and rejoicing with the sunshine.  Beautiful free evenings like this seem to make it all worth the wait.

Catching grasshoppers. Playing monster.  Snuggling on a quilt. Chasing the sunset.  And dancing barefoot in the grass. I plan on having lots more evenings like this for as long as summer lasts.  And hopefully it will be enough to get us through another long winter.

Baby Elowyn | And Her Brothers | NH Newborn Family Photographer

I always feel so incredibly honored to photograph a family when they have just brought home a brand new baby.  It is an amazing time in any family’s life.  I remember the first few days of each of my own children’s journey into our home with such fondness.  It is an emotional, foggy time, full of adjustments and  changes, but also the most endearing few days.  It really is an incredible joy to watch siblings get to know each other and settle in to their new roles within their family.

Little Elowyn doesn’t know it yet but she is one lucky baby girl! Besides being gorgeous, she has the most loving family and adoring big brothers and parents.  Life can get kind of crazy when you add a third child but these guys handle it with kindness and grace.  I enjoyed every minute with this family and am looking forward to watching the kids grow over the years.

Baby Elliot | NH Newborn Photographer

What is is about newborns that is so captivating?  It’s almost impossible to resist looking at them and to  study their incredible little features.  Especially when you’re the lucky new parent!  I know I spent many hours just staring at my sleeping babies, willing myself to commit their amazing faces to memory.

Sweet little Elliot was just 6 days old when I photographed her. She is a miraculous little bundle of joy and so loved by her parents and their golden retriever, Angus.  This is truly a love filled home and I am looking forward to watching Elliot grow and to see more of her little personality shine. But for now, she can just stay this way. Because she’s pretty perfect already.
