Rocky Neck Summer Beach Sessions | Family Love

Rocky Neck State Park has the most gorgeous boardwalk area covered in beautiful canopy trees. This makes for the perfect setting for family fun photo sessions. We loved playing games and having secret tickle sessions all while feeding each other gummy bears. I just adored these sweet families and can’t wait to get back to the beach this summer for some more beach fun.

Farm Engagement Session | Stephen + Joel

Where to begin with these two handsome guys. When I first met Stephen at the hair salon I knew right away I wanted to have the opportunity to photograph him one day. His smile is just infectious and his out going personality lights up any room. As sad as I am that he literally moved to Florida the day we took these photos I am super happy he found his soul mate. I will forever miss our fun and hilarious conversations while sitting in his chair getting my hair done. When Stephen called and said lets get some photos done before me move away I was so honored. He left it up to me where we wanted to shoot but with one thing in mind he said I love something with nature and old barn looking buildings. So of course I had the perfect place in mind and it just happened to be right by my studio. One of my favorite places to photograph year round. Some people don’t realize the history in our small town of Canterbury and I kinda like it that way. Its always so quiet and a relaxed atmosphere when I bring my clients here to shoot. Next time I get to see these handsome guys will be for their wedding day. Now hurry up you too and get to planning that big day!!

Harkness Memorial Park Engagement Session | Colleen + Matt

This Harkness engagement sessions love story started at a friends bbq back in 2013. That would set the seen for Colleen and Matt to start dating and now they are building their life together a day at a time. When I asked about the proposal I kinda melted with pure excitement when I heard the story. Imagine your sitting in a nice restaurant in Dublin Ireland. Yes you read that correct they were on a trip to Dublin Ireland. This is so on my bucket list of places I want to visit in my lifetime. It was the very first night on their trip and Matt was treating Colleen to a super romantic fancy dinner at The Bank Restaurant. While eating dessert, they were talking about their future, and how excited they were for their move and and the future. That’s when Matt grabs the ring from his jacket pocket, gets down on 1 knee and proposes. I am a desert girl and I of course wanted to know what was for desert and hello what a romantic man Matt is. I don’t even think I would be able to eat my desert after that because I would be full of excitement so I hope he at least let Colleen eat a little before dropping to one knee. I can see it all over his face the way he looks at her that she is his everything. I can’t wait for their wedding to finally get here already. June seems so far away yet so close.

Harkness Beach Engagement Portraits | Abi + Marc

Abi, Marc and I had so much fun exploring Harkness during their engagement session. We had a beautiful sky that day. Even better was a very photogenic couple who I swear were naturals in front of the camera. I barely had to tell them what to do. I always love sending my couples a short questionnaire when they inquire with me because well I LOVE getting to know them so I don’t feel like a stranger when we meet for the first time.

When I asked Abi how these two met this was in her own words. We met late summer 2016 through a mutual friend who had been trying to set us up for awhile. She invited him on a "girl's" weekend up in NH to hike and hangout. Needless to say, he held his own with 3 overworked nurses whose topics of conversations tend to veer towards the gross side. And he was still interested after watching me struggle on the hike with a nauseous stomach!

Then I asked about the proposal and this is were it gets even better. In Abi’s own words “We often go for walks at a friend's farm close to home with our dog, Ziggy. There are beautiful woods, trails and ponds to choose from. One late morning, the sun had broken out after a night of snow. He suggested we go for a walk because he knows I love snow. I was excitedly snapping pictures of Ziggy in his new scarf for our holiday cards when he suggested we hike to the top of the big hill on the property. As we were walking up, he started asking me about what were my "top three" memories for 2017. I immediately chose our trip to Costa Rica (our second date!). Then I talked about a fireworks festival in Montreal he took me to (because he knows I love fireworks!). We had done so many things that year, I told him I had trouble picking a third and told him it was his turn. By this point, we were at the top of the hill and I was obliviously looking all around at the snow-filled panoramic view. He talked about Costa Rica and then a trip to Denver where we saw our favorite band at Red Rocks. And then when I turned toward him, he was going down on one knee with a ring in his hand saying "And I hope this will make your top 3..." And then I blacked out. He says there was swearing and crying and then finally a "yes!".

I don’t think I could have worded this any better than Abi did… I am kinda obsessed with their love story and hearing about their second date to Costa Rica was ummmm pretty amazing. But if you want to hear about that you must come back to see their wedding posted soon.

Harkness Beach Photos | Gabrielle + Mike

Harkness Memorial park is always the perfect backdrop for any type of session weather it be for a romantic couples session or even when you wanna throw in the brides adorable son for a few family photos. I’m a big harry potter fan myself so I couldn’t resist letting little man keep his glasses on and his magic wand in hand. Mike is truly a great man and I am so happy for Gabrielle and little man to have him in their lives. He walked into Gabrielle’s life and loves her for everything she has to offer. Best thing ever is he gets and immediate family. Who couldn’t ask for more love than that? He gets two for the price of one…

Stop back by my blog soon to see their beautiful wedding from this past fall at the Gorgeous Burr Mansion!!

Intimate Devils Hopyard Engagement Session | Erin + Lee

I maybe be biased but I am a little obsessed with this session at Devils Hopyard from this past spring. Erin and Lee nailed it from the perfect outfits to every pose. I mean they are our naturals in front of the camera. You will see more of that when I blog their wedding here soon. I was so excited when I saw her ring because this girl LOVES rings. It was simply beautiful and I must say Lee did a fabulous job picking it out. I just love how they met at the local bar that Erin worked. Lee would come in with his friends for nearly two years before he finally asked this beautiful lady out. I secretly think he had to work up the courage but she gladly excepted and now they get to spend the rest of their lives making memories. He took her out on the greater banks on vacation and during a moonlit stroll he wrapped his arms around her and whispered sweet words into her ear. Little did Erin know what was about to happen when she turned around and he got down on one knee and asked her to spend the rest of her life with him. Its like a fairy tail and I am so honored to be their photographer and I get to share in their love story.

Canterbury Maternity + Newborn Studio Session

This family is not only a fellow wedding industry vendor but a close friend. I couldn't have been more excited and honored when asked to photograph their maternity and newborn portraits for their first baby. I mean hello look at this gorgeous momma to be. Victoria was stunning in this blue dress made by a fellow photographer and close friend Tracy. When you bribe dad to take off his shirt and trust your vision magic happens within the camera. I think I let out the biggest yelp of excitement when I knew what I was getting in camera was perfect and told the love story of these two in just a few simple photos. The passion in the way Wesley holds his wife is just pure love.

Now for little man (That’s his nickname) he was a little stinker on the day of his photos but we managed to love on him and get some really cute photos for mom and dad to cherish for a lifetime. Always remembering how little he was. It’s hard to believe how big he’s gotten since this session but I just love watching him grow whenever I can. He’s feisty and a spit fire like his mom. I can see it now with the different looks and grins that he is such a mommas boy.

Come back to see more of this cute family do to hit the blog soon!
