Fun Wedding

I had the pleasure of being a part of a wonderful wedding in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire on Memorial Day weekend. These folks knew how to have a fun time. The bride and groom were very sweet. It is such a joy to be able to help them capture the memories of their special day. Here are some highlights.

You never know what will happen when it comes to cutting the cake! I must say that although the bride had some fun with this, it was done very tastefully!

The groom made sure the dance floor was well tested!

All in all, I'd say the wedding "rocked"!

Family Portraits Help "Freeze Time"

Being a parent, I see first hand how quickly families grow! I chose to offer child and family portrait photography to my clients so that I could help other families "freeze time" through portraits!

Summer is finally upon us and this provides some beautifully natural backdrops for family portraits. Anyone can go to a studio and have a portrait taken, but having it done in an outdoor setting and giving clients the opportunity to choose a meaningful or sentimental location makes them truly unique.

Here are a few families who have enjoyed the fun in making family memories.

Contact me to reserve your own time for a family portrait session and let the fun begin!

NH PPA Conference Excitement

The month of April has been quite busy with photographic events, and loads of fun! I just returned from the New Hampshire Professional Photographer's Association (NHPPA) 49th Annual Conference and got to experience such notable speakers as Fuzzy Duenkel and Mike Fulton. Both have amazing talent and offered lots of education! I entered two prints in the print competition. The goal is to get a blue ribbon, which in numerical scoring is an 80 or above. A "blue" is considered "deserving of merit" and is recognized in the industry with a degree credit. This category is above a red ribbon, which is the "above average professional" category to give you an idea of the weight it carries. I am proud to share that both prints scored in the blue ribbon category!

"Autumn Serenity" scored an 86!

"Gentle Cascades" scored an 84!

In addition to the fun of seminars and competition, I was proud to be sworn in to my 3 year Director term for the organization. I also serve as Scholarship Chairperson. This organization has offered so much to me that it is my pleasure to serve in these positions as my way of giving back!
