Hancock Inn | Wedding Inspiration Shoot

The Hancock Inn is the oldest inn in New Hampshire and exudes charm and beauty.  It was the perfect setting for our recent wedding inspiration shoot with a preppy blackwatch theme.  So many amazingly talented people contributed to the shoot and the result is stunning.  We wanted to show some of the unique details that the inn offers to it’s couples such as Sunday brunch; exquisite displays of food; and incredible charm. All in a quaint New England village setting.  There are so many possibilities for weddings in this wonderful historic gem. Enjoy!

Waiting for Baby | NH Newborn Photographer

These two are one of my favorite couples ever.  I photographed their wedding a few years ago and now I am so excited that they are expecting a wee one this summer!  They are both so sweet and this is one lucky little baby to have parents like them.  In the meantime, here are a few belly shots.

Justine and Ben | Labelle Winery Wedding

Justine and Ben were married at LaBelle Winery on a beautiful spring day in April.  They were the sweetest, happiest couple and their joy surrounded every guest that was there. Even their special flower dog, Emmie. Justine was stunning in her Essence of Australia gown and her bridesmaids wore Jenny Yoo.  Cymbidium Floral created the gorgeous bouquet and floral designs for the wedding and all the details of the day were perfect.

This wedding was the perfect blend of beauty and joy, exactly how it should be.  And these two are the perfect match for each other.

Bright Eyes | NH Newborn Photographer

This little sweetie was just 8 days old when I photographed her.  Normally I love sleeping babies but she had the biggest, brightest eyes and was so alert for most of the time that I was there. It amazes me that someone so little and new can already have so much personality as she certainly did.  She is so well loved and cared for by her parents and I can’t wait to watch her grow in to that big personality.

Atticus | Seven

And just like that, he is seven years old.  One missing tooth, still an impish grin, and forever making us smile.  Atticus has always brought the sunshine in to our family.  His enthusiasm for life is infectious and even when he’s mad he is adorable.  He loves birthdays more than any person I’ve ever met but he knows I’m not the biggest fan of seeing my kids get older, so he climbed into my lap this morning and said, “Mom, you can just pretend that I’m still six”.  Thanks, Bud.  Thanks for your laughter and free spirit. Thanks for dressing up in costumes and creating traps in the woods. Thanks for keeping life simple and fun, even though I’m still mad that you hide snakes on my pillow at night. I hope seven years old is the best age it can be for you.  I know you will find joy and laughter throughout the year because that is what you do.  But I still expect lots of snuggles too.  Love, Mom
