Senior Portraits and College Graduate Portraits – New Hampshire Senior Portrait Photographer

Hello everyone!

It’s beginning to get closer to graduation for high school seniors and college seniors! Most know that I’ve done a lot of high school senior portraits in the past but I also love to photograph soon to be college graduates or even photograph at college graduations or grad parties! May and June is such a great time of year for photography, as well as the rest of the summer and fall. I also usually start  to schedule sessions now for anyone who is in the junior class and will become a senior in the Fall. Don’t wait until the last minute!

I’ve taken senior portraits all over New Hampshire as well as along the Seacoast of New England.

Looking forward to photographing all my senior clients this season!

Celebrating Spring and Easter – New England Food and Lifestyle Photographer

Spring is finally here and the temperatures are warming up! (Although, I’ve seen a few snow showers here and there…that’s New England for you! ) Now that things are melting and thawing it’s time we saw some color after things have been gray for so long. On Easter for Tell New England we posted a blog about naturally dyeing eggs which was pretty fun and I wanted to share my images here as well. The fact that you can get so many shades and colors, some more neutral and some more vibrant from vegetables, fruits, coffee, tea, flowers, etc was so interesting! You can also wrap plants, herbs, or string around the eggs to get different patterns. See the full tutorial on the Tell New England Journal.

For the second part of this post, I wanted to bake something, and the timing is perfect because I celebrate two Easters. The other one being Greek Easter which will be this Sunday! Both have their benefits and I have to say my favorite part is the food! (Especially for Greek Easter).

One of my favorite Greek dishes to make is Spanakopita, but I haven’t done much baking on my own. My Yia Yia used to make these buttery Greek cookies with me when I was little and I wanted to try them out. They are called Koulourakia and they are delicious, light, crumbly cookies that go great with coffee. These cookies are usually served on Easter and sometimes Christmas. It took a bit to get them rolled out to the sizes I preferred, but once that was sorted out it was smooth sailing from there. The combination of butter and sugar is a winner every time in my book.

Next, I went for something a little more challenging. I decided to make another traditional baked good of Greece called Melitinia. I had never heard of these or had them, but they sounded wonderful! Cheese….who doesn’t like cheese? These are described as sweet cheese pastries and they were a bit more complicated. For my first try it wasn’t too bad, however, they didn’t come out that great, but hey, worth a shot! Hopefully I’ll be able to try the real thing someday – as in something made by a seasoned Greek baker, haha.

I can’t wait for all the amazing Greek food I will be consuming this Sunday!

 

Cheers!

Roots & Rum – New England Food Photographer

If you saw my last post, you know that I shoot and work on stories for T.e.l.l. New England!

 

In our previous issue, The Roots Issue, we featured a story on the Rum Trail in New England which follows a historical path of rum and distilleries. Read the full story here.

I really enjoyed photographing the rum recipes (find them here) and tasting them! My favorite, which actually turned me off when I read the recipe, ended up being the Rum Flip, which is the frothy drink shown below. It’s a great warm drink for a cold winter evening.

The second recipe below is a healthy and wonderfully easy recipe you can make as a side dish or snack. Turmeric is a great spice that is becoming more popular especially as an anti-inflammatory. See the recipe here.

The rest is some pretty root vegetables, a seasonal delight! Hoping this wintery weather will be over soon because I’m ready for spring!

T.e.l.l. New England & Foret Design Collaboration – New England Food and Lifestyle Photographer

As some of you know, I am co-founder and photographer for the online publication, T.e.l.l. New England, a quarterly magazine that captures the essence of living locally in our Northeast Region. We are in our 2nd year and on our 9th issue. Our last issue, which was The Roots Issue, came out in February. The Roots Issue featured makers, small business, stories, recipes, and art all centered around roots in a literal sense, but also in the way that many businesses and people are rooted in their communities and have been around for generations and generations.

 

This feature was a collaboration between us and the wonderful ladies from Foret Design Studio out of Boston, Massachusetts. Together we worked on a floral arrangement that involved the roots of plants, something you don’t normally see among flowers but we thought it would be great to have a unique take on Roots. We photographed everything at Five Fork Farms, a sustainable flower CSA in Massachusetts. We had a great time working together and I hope you go check out the rest of the story over at www.tellnewengland.com!

Back to Basics – Food and Lifestyle Photographer – New Hampshire & Vermont

 

If you live in New England, you already know that it has snowed, and snowed, and snowed. This is the first winter where I really feel I’ve been taking it pretty well, been keeping busy and it hasn’t brought me down too much. Obviously some days are harder than others and the cold gets to you after a while. I miss the bright summer days filled with greenery and not having to leave an extra half hour of time when getting out of house to bundle up and brush off the car. It’s been tough for everyone but I’m keeping optimistic and trying my best to get the most out of the slow season. I’m pushing myself to photograph every week, and it’s been alright so far. I’m baking and cooking more which I thoroughly enjoy (especially the part where you eat it) and building up my food portfolio yet again. The wedding season tends to distract me a bit from this, and I feel like the winter months are great for honing in on my craft and really trying to learn more about the way I see and think and work when it comes to my food photography, and just photography in general. I truly love all of the jobs I get to do and all of the opportunities this career path has brought me to.

Recently I held a gallery night to showcase the images I took on my road trip across the country this past summer. I also sold and am selling prints and a book! It’s been amazing to hear what others think of my work after looking at the images for so long by myself.

As you can imagine, I’m itching to travel again and I’ve been trying to figure out the next place to go. I vowed that every year I would go someplace I haven’t been before and hope to keep it up if I can.

For now I’m going to keep chugging along and working on business, networking, promoting, etc.. to keep this passion going.

 

The pictures below are from the past few months, a trip to Vermont with my boyfriend where I was sick but we had a lot of fun exploring the Burlington and Hinesburg area. We had great luck with an AirBnB find (click here to get $25 toward your first trip!) with hosts who made us home made yogurt and granola to munch on in the mornings and provided us with the coziest barn loft to stay in. We also stopped by one of my favorite cafes, Vergennes Laundry, for some coffee and breakfast. Delicious! This trip prompted me to make my own home made yogurt which you’ll see at the bottom of this post. You can check out the full recipe at T.E.L.L. New England.

 

Back in January just after the New Year, I made my Yia Yia’s Greek New Year’s bread! I definitely wanted to photograph it as it’s a recipe we’ve had every year. You divide it up between everyone in the house hold and whoever gets the coin in their slice of bread gets good luck for the year! A fun tradition. I’m holding this recipe secret, but if you really want it, send me an email!

 

The rest is just some miscellaneous imagery and practicing with low light with some olive branches given to me after a shoot with TELL and the ladies of Foret Design Studio.
