This year had the most weddings I’ve ever shot in a year, and it was crazy and amazing! They brought me all over New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, and even down to Rhode Island. I was also lucky enough to be a guest at a few weddings too!

Something that stands out to me the most is how nice, wonderful, accommodating, happy, creative, and fun my clients were! I seriously got lucky with all of them and I can only hope for more wonderful couples in the years to come. Each and every wedding had it’s own unique flair and vibe that matched the personalities of each couple perfectly. I can’t wait to see what this next year brings. Congratulations to all my 2015 newlyweds!

This is the last installment of my 2015 review! Check out the other posts here:

This is probably my favorite post out of these because I was able to do so much more food and lifestyle photography this year and feel like I’ve grown a bit in doing so. There’s SO many I can’t even show yet because they don’t come out until next year, but there’s a lot here that are some of my favorite images shot this year. Food is so fun and the stories that go along with it are so interesting. I was lucky enough to be able to work on some amazing publications and websites as well as work with my amazing clients. We had such a great time collaborating and creating this year. My photography took me all over the place in New England and even to Albany and the Adirondacks in New York. Being able to travel instead of stay in one place for my jobs is one of my favorite parts about being a photographer. I’m happy to have included more of a human element into my food work to bring a more relatable presence to the table (pun intended). I also had a great time working on TELL New England and meeting some wonderful and talented people. I’m so excited to keep on this journey and learning as much as I can about the world of food and our community.

Be sure to check back again for the last installment with some wedding photo favorites from this past year.

Enjoy!

Below are some Edible magazines featuring my images. It’s so exciting to see in print and be able to hold it in your hands. It’s also so fun to go out to different places and be able to photograph and meet some great people and see some wonderful places (and try good food!) Be sure to check out Edible Green Mountains, Edible Capitol District, and Edible Seacoast!

I am doing a year in review with 3 different blog posts starting with my personal work, food and lifestyle, and then weddings. I hope you enjoyed this year as much as I did!

My path as a photographer started when I was looking at old photographs my parents had taken and thought to myself, “I need to be part of this, I need to actively capture what is happening now so we can all look at this later on!” and so began my life with a camera. Since then I realized I could do so much more beyond a mere snapshot, but I still try to be vigilant in capturing my life with my friends and family, and sometimes just by myself. Having a cell phone makes that super easy these days, and I’m thankful for that since I take a lot of pictures of the in between moments, but having my “good camera” with me is always better. Looking back on my year in photos brings me so much joy and gratitude. In a way, it’s a subconscious thank you for everything I get to see and I want to keep these beautiful moments with me forever.

Since this is my personal post, I’m going to get personal over here. It’s my blog, after all :)

Ending the year can feel sad, happy, and strange. I take a lot of time to think about what I accomplished and what I can do better. It’s a great spot to start to think about the potential the next year holds. Every New Year instead of making resolutions I set goals for myself and plan on achieving them, (and usually do!). I thought I might share my goals with you here and hope it motivates you to maybe do the same.

2016 Goals

  • Start a Roth IRA/Retirement fund (super important for any small business owner or young person!!) #adulting
  • Keep up with healthy lifestyle (eating healthy and regularly exercising – chocolate is the acceptation!)
  • Hike and camp more (being outside is the ultimate form of peace for me)
  • Read 3 books (I didn’t even read one this year)
  • Knit something useful (A new hobby of mine)
  • Spend less time on cell phone/social media (rots your brain)
  • Document year via video and put it all together at the end
  • Go somewhere you’ve never been (a yearly goal!)
  • Improve on business organization, workflow, and finances
  • Be more environmentally conscious

So there you have it! Can you hold me to these? What are your goals for this next year? Feel free to comment or tell me sometime!

I’m so excited to capture this next year, learn, grow, and hopefully travel a bunch! I hope you all have a successful, positive, and fulfilling year as well.

First things first, I made a video of my summer and it was a lot of fun to put together and watch at the end, next up will be a filming a whole year as mentioned above. Enjoy!

Hello everyone, I hope you’re all enjoying the start to your Holiday season! I personally love this time of year because I love giving gifts, making gifts, having parties, and especially love spending time with the people I care about – that’s what’s most important!

I hope you’ll enjoy this next post filled with goodies. I’ve gotten really into making my own gifts this year combined with my recent love of herbology and exploring the avenues of healing through plants and the natural world. My personal philosophy in the things I buy, what I eat, and what I put on my body has changed a lot over the years as I’m sure it has for many others. If it’s made from this Earth, I’ll take it!

FIRST and foremost. If you haven’t heard already, I have launched a kickstarter with my friends and colleagues who I work with on T.e.l.l. New England. We are trying to go to print and are really excited about it! We need YOUR HELP! If we don’t reach our goal we don’t get anything, so spread the word, become a backer, and in turn you’ll get some really great things in return!

Please check out our kickstarter here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/28639116/tell-new-england

          

 

 

Alright, so now it’s about time I did some personal work after such a busy season! No complaints, it’s just fun to do your own thing every once in a while and a good way to practice and play around. I hope you’re hungry :)

After wanting to shoot for a while, I decided upon a recipe from the book Date Night In by Ashley Rodriguez. A deliciously easy crostini with peas, bruschetta, and ricotta cheese. SO good.

Next up is a new fall favorite – an autumn sangria! I wanted to make an all local drink, meaning I bought everything from local businesses in New Hampshire or New England. These days I try to make an effort to buy something locally first, if I can. It’s important to me as a small business owner to support other small businesses in my community. I feel better about where my money is going and it’s freshness. I changed this one up from the original recipe and added some spiced rum from Flag Hill Winery (Lee, NH) to go along with the cider (Massachusetts) and wine (also from Flag Hill) The apples were picked at Sunnycrest Farm in Londonderry, NH.

And lastly! I’ve been busy making Christmas gifts for friends and family who will probably read this but oh well, haha. For a while I’ve been making my own chapstick, deodorant, and cleaning products because of the harsh chemicals that are put in commercial products. For example, most common deodorants contain aluminum which is toxic to humans and has been linked to breast cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. Think about it, your arm pits are packed with lymph nodes. I’m not trying to freak people out, but I think it’s important to be aware. It’s also extremely easy to make your own products and somewhat cheaper. Win/win. Get rid of that stuff you bought the other day unless it’s from a natural food store or something. Read your labels, it’s all right there to see.

Below you’ll find home made soaps, a sugar scrub, deodorant, and chapstick! All very easy to make in your own kitchen with products you can get most anywhere. Cheers to healthier living!

    Shannon Pierce - This is amazing!! I’m so glad I found your blog! First of all I LOVE rosemary and the idea of making your own, safe, toiletries. Plus your photos are beautiful! I can’t wait to try these!ReplyCancel
