Four Months and Counting | NH children’s photographer

It’s hard to believe that Bea has been with us for four months already.  Yet I can barely remember not having her.

I love when babies finally find their feet.  She can’t seem to get enough of holding those toes.

She coos and babbles and drools and basically just enjoys life!

 We love you sweet Bea.

New Private Mini Sessions | NH Children’s Photographer

Happy Monday Everyone!

Now that it’s starting to feel like summer I am so pleased to announce my new private mini sessions! I offered a limited number of these last fall and they were such a success that I decided to offer them again through the summer and fall months.  A nice blend between full length sessions and mini sessions, these are perfect for your growing  children.   Designed to allow enough time to walk together, have fun and catch your family as it is today.  Just as you are.

Sessions will be scheduled outdoors in and around the Monadnock area.  Most sessions will be on weekday evenings to catch that beautiful buttery sunset light and there will be some weekend days available as well.   The introductory cost is $99 (prices will be going up to $150 after May 1st so sign up now!) and they are approximately 45 minutes in length.  Price includes the session, an online gallery to view the images, and a free 5×7″ print.  You may order additional prints, albums, canvases etc.

Here’s how it works:

You decide it’s time for some beautiful new portraits of your children.

You contact me to schedule a time during the summer months for a private mini session.

We decide on a good date and place.  Most likely on a weekday evening at an outdoor location in the Monadnock area.

I meet you there and photograph your kids* playing and being themselves for approximately 45 minutes.

You go home happy, having a fun time and knowing that you’ve preserved some great memories of your family.

I post the images onto a password protected gallery on my website.

You have two weeks to choose your prints and products.

Your home is full of beautiful, original  artwork with the most amazing subjects you could ask for.

*Due to the nature of these sessions the age limit for children is 6 months and up.

 

If you would like to set up a time for a private mini session, a full family session, or a classic mini session please send me an email and we can discuss the details.  I look forward to photographing your beautiful family this summer.

Tractor Birthday Party | NH Children’s Photographer

My three year old son lives and breathes tractors.  It’s in his genes.   I can point out a beautiful farm with fields filled with horses and he’ll spot the tractor tucked away in the corner.  I can take him to a petting farm to feed the animals and he’ll find the farm tractor and want to sit on that.  He brings as many toy tractors as we’ll allow into his bath at night.

So, for his third birthday party we decided to do a tractor theme.  My mom worked her magic as usual and made some beautiful decorations.  He was thrilled.  Here are some pictures I thought I’d share.

And for the cupcakes:

Enjoying the goods!

Happy Birthday Buddy!  We love you!

Expecting | Maternity Photos | NH Children’s Photographer

I first met Kate and Brett in 2009 when I photographed their wedding.  They are a lovely couple and I was so excited when Kate contacted me about doing their maternity photos.  One of the best things about being a wedding photographer is following couples in their lives together.

I have to say, pregnancy just works for Kate.  She’s gorgeous!

 

Can’t wait to see the little bundle!
