4 Times 12 | October

Happy Halloween!  I’m getting this month’s project in just under the wire!!  But here it is, each of my children from the month of October.

Here is what I love:

As Asa gets older he wants to look a bit cooler in his pictures.  But I can still make him laugh and I love that.

Finley’s freckles.  I will always love Finley’s freckles.

Despite the intense blue lion painting, Atticus has chocolate on his face and that keeps it real.

Bea’s blue eyes.  I can never get enough of those big baby blues.

350 Media | Local Goodness

Imagine that you go to work every day in a quaint New England town, in a beautifully restored old mill building, with water running underneath it.  And that the people you work with are some of the sweetest, kindest people you’ve  ever met.  Try to envision yourself bringing your dog or your baby to work with you and then imagine that the actual work you do is helping our earth.  Picture yourself walking over to the little general store to grab a cup of coffee and maybe have your company meeting at their little cafe table.

I can honestly tell you that a place like this actually exists! I was lucky enough to spend the morning with 350 Media in Harrisville, NH and enjoyed every minute of it.  Oliver and Sara wanted to update their company head shots and be able to give their global clients a sense of who they are and where they work.  We spent a little time in and around the beautiful 350 Media office and then walked over to the Harrisville General Store to grab a cup of coffee,  a pretty common routine for these guys.  I couldn’t help myself and loved grabbing a few details in the adorable little store while we were there.  Seriously, you need a fresh doughnut?  You need a handcrafted felt doll?  Maybe a bottle of wine and some grass fed organic beef?  It’s all here!

I’m pretty sure that if most people worked in this kind of environment the world would most certainly be a better place.

Virelai Turns Two

My sweet little niece just turned two!  That’s scary because it means that Bea is not far behind!  It seems like just yesterday that they were turning one.  Here is Virelai at her first birthday!

Earlier this month, Atticus, Bea and I spent the day apple picking and hanging out with Lindsay, Syrus and Virelai.  Atti and Sy are just one month apart in age, and Virelai and Bea are just two months apart.  It’s incredible and wonderful to watch their friendships form as they grow and we are so lucky to have them near us.  You just can’t beat having cousins!

Virelai was born with the most beautiful head of hair and it just keeps getting more lovely.  It goes perfectly with her big blue eyes.  She is such an adorable, funny, adventurous little girl and I look forward to watching her grow and seeing who she becomes.

Sarah & Josh | Engaged | Alyson’s Orchard

Today I get to share some of the beautiful engagement photos of one of my favorite 2014 couples!!  Sarah and Josh are getting married next summer at Alyson’s Orchard in Walpole, NH.  The views there are absolutely breathtaking and everywhere you look there is a gorgeous setting.  We stopped by on a cloudy fall day (and Josh’s birthday!) and did some portraits amongst the trees and cattails.  These two were so great to work with and can just tell that they are perfect for each other.

Sarah and Josh, I can’t wait for your wedding next summer!!

A Day at the Beach | NH Children’s Photographer

There is just something so wonderful about the beach.  I feel very fortunate to live within driving distance of the ocean.  It is definitely a drive though so I don’t get to go as often as I’d like.  I was so excited when this wonderful family asked me to do their portraits at the ocean this year.  It was the perfect setting for their very busy little almost-two-year old!

I love the busy-ness of this little guy and I love the way that his mom and dad adore him.  It’s easy to see that they are enjoying every single minute of being parents.
