Winston is One | NH Children’s Photographer

Two little front teeth, big blue eyes, and the most contagious smile.  That’s Winston.  He just celebrated his first birthday and photographing him was so much fun.  Here he is, being loved to pieces.

Evie is Two | NH Children’s Photographer

Spring is a busy time around here with birthdays.  Between my own kids and their cousins we have been doing a lot of celebrating and it won’t end until July!  Last week we celebrated my niece’s 2nd birthday and I did a few pictures of her while they were here visiting.  Evie is about as cute as can possibly be and besides being Bea’s best little buddy, she is also my Goddaughter, so she is very special to us.  From her bright little smile to her dreamy eyes she pretty much melts hearts wherever she goes.  She is also going to be a big sister this summer!!

Happy Birthday Sweetie Pie!

Finn and Lukas | Twins | NH Newborn Photographer

Every baby is an absolute miracle.  I am always astounded at how perfectly tiny and unique they are.  But twins!  Well, that’s just mind blowing to me.  It is utterly amazing and incredibly beautiful to think that two little souls were created at the same instant.  Beginning their lives together, growing side by side, in their mama.  These two heart breakers were just five days old when I photographed them.  Brand spanking new and yet, so unique and special in their own ways.  Finn outweighed his brother by 2 whole pounds and yet you could tell that sweet little Lukas was bursting with personality.

They are the luckiest little boys to be born into this family and their mom and dad are already naturals.  To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I arrived at their home.  First time parents with twin newborns…that could be a bit overwhelming!  But these two were pros and there was a wonderful sense of calm and love in their home.  I was truly impressed with the way they handled the two boys and worked together to take care of them.  Their grandmother was helping out too and between everyone there was no shortage of snuggling and kisses.

It will be an incredible thing to watch them grow together.  To see the men they become.  To know that they will always have each other.

Sweet Baby Francesca | NH Newborn Photographer

I photographed this little one before she was even born so I feel such a connection to this family and sweet baby girl.  Maternity sessions are a wonderful way to get introduced to a family and I love seeing the “before and after” changes in parents.  I photographed their maternity session back in January and they were so excited about the arrival of their daughter.  And now, here she is!!

Meet baby Francesca!  At two weeks old she is already full of personality and spirit!  Bright eyed and so incredibly loved.

Baby Vera | NH Newborn Photographer

Baby Vera was just 6 days old when I photographed her.  She is absolutely perfect.  From her soft little head of hair to the crease under her toe,  she is as sweet as they come.  And well loved!
