Mayfair Farm | NH Family Photographer

Mayfair Farm is tucked away in the lovely little town of Harrisville, NH and I was lucky enough to spend an evening here a couple of weeks ago.  Like most farms, it was a place filled with peace. But this farm was also so full of joy, laughter and love.  They walked me all around the property and showed me their livestock, their mountain views, and their strawberry patch.  It was so relaxed and easy going and exactly what I am always hoping for with a family session.  Just life, all together, as it is right now.  The kids caught grasshoppers and raced through the fields. They would come back for some snuggles and then wander off again.  It was heartwarming and refreshing. Here are just a few of my favorites from our evening.

Summer Mini Sessions | NH Children’s Photographer

It was a lovely summer day for our mini sessions and as always, I was amazed at the beauty of the children that I was photographing.  They are all so unique and I loved all the different personalities that shone through.  There were so many smiles and snuggles and laughs throughout the day. Using the grounds at Aldworth Manor was a last minute decision but I’m so glad I chose it. There are so many incredible little nooks to photograph in and I especially loved the big granite steps.  Picking daisies in the field was a big hit and made for some gorgeous portraits. Here are just a few of my favorites from the day!

Amy and Brian | Married | Lakeside Wedding

Amy and Brian were married on the lovely shores of Lake Winnipesaukee. This vintage lace inspired wedding was bursting with color, family and happiness.  Amy and her family have spent many summers here on this beach and it was always her dream to have her wedding here. From the colorful wildflowers and burlap and lace tables to the gourmet popcorn stand and porch rocking chairs, everyone felt right at home in this warm atmosphere. The day was perfect and there was plenty of dancing, fun and love to go around.

Kelly and Kurt | XV Beacon Rooftop Wedding | Boston Wedding Photographer

Kelly and Kurt had the most amazing destination Boston Beacon Hill Wedding.  These two live in Arizona but love Boston and wanted to gather here with their family and close friends for a lovely roof top wedding at the XV Beacon Hotel.  It was nothing short of fabulous.  These two just brought it!  And by it, I mean all things fabulous.  Kelly’s shoes and dress were to die for (and Kelly is, well, gorgeous)  and Kurt was charming and demure.  The two were so in love and their happiness just radiated around them.  After the ceremony we walked a few blocks around Beacon Hill for some gorgeous photos and then it was back to the wine cellar in Mooo… for an incredible dinner and reception.

In Kelly’s words “Kurt and I met on my 31st birthday. Kurt was my “birthday gift” from my close friend Cherie.  We’ve been inseparable ever since. Best birthday present ever!”

I am incredibly honored to meet and get to know this lovely couple and photograph their gorgeous wedding.

Rebecca and Tim | Backyard Hanover NH Wedding

Becca and Tim were married on a sticky hot day in May.  We started our day at the Hanover Inn and then headed over to the most gorgeous riverside setting in Lyme, NH  for the wedding.  Their fun bridal party and amazing details made the day absolutely perfect.  The guys all wore signature Nike shoes, each one stitched with the year that they met Tim. The girls donned fabulous J Crew dresses and Morgan from Valley Flower Company created the stunning flowers for the day.  The children were adorable and treated so special.  Each were given their own suitcase filled with goodies. There was a fabulous tree house overlooking the river which doubled as a photo booth.

Backyard weddings are always fun and this one was exceptionally wonderful.  Congratulations to Becca and Tim!
