The Carrel Family ~

While I mainly focus on featuring engagements and weddings on the blog, there are certain families that hold such a special place in my heart
that I can’t bear the thought of not sharing their photos… and also because I just love them so much (the people and the photos)! 😉
The Carrel family is one such family that is so very dear to me.
They are wonderful friends and their adorable twins, Caleb and Lyla, are pretty much the cutest kids on the planet.
And — spoiler alert, there’s actually a new kid in town – the Carrels welcomed another baby boy in to their family just last month!
I can’t wait to share Baby Hudson’s newborn shoot <3
Enjoy this lovely family and their gorgeous Odiorne session.
Can you even handle this cuteness?!

Fall 2013 Mini Sessions {NH Family Photographer}

Fall certainly feels like a long time ago, doesn’t it?! I mean, I guess it was!
This past fall I offered family mini sessions at Wagon Hill in Durham…
Which seemed like an especially good time with Christmas card season right around the corner!
I am always amazed at how lucky I am to get to do something I love so much for a living.
I wish everyone could understand the immense importance of regular documentation of your family or loved ones –
Exactly as you are… wild and happy kids, sneaking kisses amongst the chaos, little ones that still want to hold hands…
The list goes on.
Time goes by so fast and so often I look around me and wonder how it’s possible that
kiddos grow up, people move on, and so often we are left with only fuzzy memories days passed.
The investment of family photographs is so small in comparison to the years and years ahead of you
in which you will look back on these days that felt oh-so-long and you will wish for a little piece of that to return to you…
even if only for a moment.
Photographs become tangible memories that last forever… Well in to future generations.
There are still days that my siblings and I look through our bin of old family photos and are so thankful that our parents were so great about documenting our childhoods.
What a gift!
I have honestly never worked with a couple or family who has told me they wished they had waited on photos…
I have only ever heard “I truly wish we made this happen more often”.
If you are in need of updated photos, please contact me!
I offer lifestyle sessions in your home as well as being able to recommend beautiful local places where we can go and capture you just as you are.
I will offer mini sessions again next fall – so be on the lookout for those.
Thank you so much to these beautiful people that gave me the opportunity to capture them so perfectly.
Lots of love ~

Karen + Lisa + Ned {New Hampshire Family Photographer}

What I absolutely love about this family is that they are firm believers in the fact that it is never too late to have family photos taken…
Both Lisa and Ned are beautiful, successful twenty-somethings with busy lives of their own and yet,
they realize the importance of documenting their love as a family together with their gorgeous mom Karen
(and I know, she looks like another sibling! I still think these three may actually be triplets) ;]
This photoshoot was a gift for Karen from Lisa and Ned (so sweet!)
They told me that they hadn’t had family photos done since they were little –
and obviously that needed to change!
From the very first moment, I loved these three.
Their love for each other is so evidently beautiful and genuine ~
I don’t think I’ve ever met a family this gorgeous either – all three of them could seriously be professional models!
I am so grateful for the opportunity to photograph this family and I really hope I will get to work with them again in the future!
All my love to you guys!
