Brianna and Paul Engagement – Wagon Hill Farm – Durham, New Hampshire

Spring is finally here! With it comes wedding season, senior portrait sessions, engagements, family sessions, and so much more!

I’ve been excited to meet and photograph Brianna and Paul since our first few emails. Brianna is from Massachusetts but met Paul while attending University in England and things clicked for them there. Now they are getting married in August with family and friends attending from both continents. They are a perfect match and clearly care a lot about each other. They have a love for music and brought a guitar along for the shoot which I loved for photos at the end. I really enjoyed getting to know them and cannot wait for their big day!

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!
