So many new things..Where do I start? {NH baby photographer}

Let's Start with my brand new Baby's First Year Plan! I was so fortunate to attend a workshop a couple of weeks ago with the rock star photographer Sam Puc in Woburn, MA. I went to learn from the master about how to set up a great baby and family plan. It's so great- you are going to be psyched!

Baby's First Year: $195.00
~Receive 4 sessions in the first year: Maternity, newborn, 6 months, 12 months OR skip the maternity session and add in a 3 month session.
~After the newborn session you will receive a free 3.5x5 styrene brag book. These are so beautiful, custom designed and all about showing off your beautiful new baby.
~After the completion of your 12 month session, you will receive a FREE custom designed 10x20 or 20x20 multi session collage/ storyboard.
~ Tell the story of your baby's first year- a custom designed coffee table book available for $495

~Enjoy a reduced minimum order requirement of $275 per session and 10% off collections
~Cake smash at 12 month session. Oh my goodness, these are so fun. I bring the cake. Mom, you bring a few wipes. Or a whole bucket.

Save $900. That's a ton.

I'll blog soon about the Family Plan too.

Tiny Baby Bump {Hanover Maternity & Newborn Photographer}

One of the best ways to spend a beautiful Sunday afternoon- photographing the beautiful Mom to be Carissa, in her lovely home with her sweet Daddy to be Husband, and their 3 sweet kitties. I instantly became attached to the idea of their baby and how much it would be adored, and how she or he would grow up in a home that seemed to have so much life in it. Somehow I just know this family has a happily ever after in their story.

Apparently my rage has fixed the problem

Never mind. Back to your regularly scheduled program. My blog is possesed.

Stand By for Technical Difficulties

As you can see, it appears that someone has hacked into my blog. I doubt it is photobucket because they would be insane to do such a thing and imagine that they could maintain a business, so I am guessing I was hacked. If it was Photobucket who did do this to my blog, I will start a new photobucket anti blog and will make it my mission in life to see that they go down. Off with their heads!

Hold It!! (New Hampshire Family Photographer}

I just found out that my Mom can not be at the Open House on the 30th, so I am changing it. There is no one I would rather have there then her, so it's going to be June 13th from 9am to 1pm. Mark it on your calendars! (P.S. There will be better food because she will help me!)

Since I couldn't post without a picture.. one of my all time favorites...

Big Things {Hanover, NH Child Photographer}

I feel like I am standing on the edge of something great. Something big and real and dreamy and all that my Father God wants it to be. I stand in awe of Him and the gifts He gives to His children who could never deserve the love he so generously pours out on us. I stand in awe of Him who loves even when we take a step away and get too busy to be devoted to Him. And I stand in awe of this God who perfectly cares for ME, and His patience with me as I question His plan and His wisdom and His purpose. His mercy is great.

The studio is now empty. It is mine on Thursday. I start painting and hanging pictures and curtains and moving furniture in next week. It is here, this dream of mine, this little gift from the God who owns it all. And I am excited and thrilled and nervous and ecstatic to be in this place right now, where I can only trust that He knows the perfect plan. It is a fine place to be in.

Please come celebrate with me. I am going to have an open house on Saturday May 30th from 9am to 1pm. I will be doing FREE 10 minute sessions and I want to say again- these sessions are FREE. Just come and let me point my lens at your beautiful family. I want to practice with all my cool new stuff, and I will need images for a new marketing campaign, and I will just want to share with all my friends, family, and clients, a little of what will be a new part of my art work. I am going to have food and a drawing for something cool and there will be discounts on that day if you book a session. But mostly, I just want to celebrate. You can R.S.V.P. to me at 603-991-8282 or e-mail me. You can bring your kiddos all dressed in their best, or leave them home and let me shoot YOU on that day, or just come, and celebrate and eat some good food.

In the meantime, I'll leave you with these fun shots of my kiddos. I was testing out a new cool spot- The Highland Croft property where there are beautiful stone walls, and a pond, and cool big logs, and the promise of lots of beautiful wildflowers and green bushes and trees galore. (And I did get permission to shoot here, thank you Mr. Gould! So no relaxing jail time for trespassing for me.)

Sweet Sleepy Baby A {New Hampshire Newborn Photographer}

Newborn photographers celebrate babies like sweet little A. He sleeps and sleeps and never complains when you scrunch him all up and put him in hats and wrap him in blankets. This sweet fresh bundle was a photographer's dream, but also a Mama's dream. Heck, if I had any babies like him, I would have had 10. He's perfect.

I will be announcing my new baby plans in the next few days, so keep on the lookout for those!

And when Baby Brother was nursing I was lucky enough to get to play with big sister A.

My Dancer

When I watch her dance, it's like God is in the room.
One of these days I will take her somewhere cool and shoot her dancing all by herself. For now, she's the one on the very end, the smallest one on the right. And I am very proud of her.

Sweet Old Soul {NH Baby Photographer}

Have you ever met a baby that looked at you and his gaze seemed to have wisdom in it? As if he knows you, and really sees you? Baby J is like that. Those big brown eyes are so serious. And then all of a sudden...they smile.

It was Mama who brought that big smile on. I think he's smitten with her!
