By Hand Serial Magazine – New Hampshire & Vermont craftspeople, knitting, makers, and woo

If you’ve been following my recent photography adventures, you may have seen that I’ve been doing quite a bit of editorial work for By Hand Serial. It’s a beautiful publication that features different regions of the US and Canada that has since expanded into some international travel (that I was lucky enough to join in on!). I was hired by them back in October of 2019 to help with the photography of their 11th issue that featured makers, places, and crafts from New Hampshire and Vermont during the fall. It was hard to believe it was a real gig when I got the email. Honestly thought it was too good to be true! I am still pinching myself a bit because it is the work that I truly love to do. Travel, food, passionate artists and craftspeople, and handmade goods! What is not to love?? I am so grateful to get this amazing job and opportunity. After the 11th issue I was brought on again to work on the first international book in London, England! I had never been across the pond so it was very exciting for me. Now we have a bunch more planned for the coming year and next year as well. Things have challenged us a bit with the virus and shut downs but we have been able to stay creative and come up with some great things for readers! More on that soon.

I’ll start with the NH/VT trip. It was the tail end of the foliage and the evenings were just starting to cool down a bit. Our first stop was at Wing and a Prayer Farm, which I had already photographed back in the days of Tell New England so it was a nice familiar starting point. Plus, Tammy the owner is one of the sweetest and badass lady farmers you’ll ever meet. Her pies are to die for and her yarn is beautiful! From there we traveled up and down NH and in and out of Vermont talking with many different crafts people. The magazine is heavily fiber arts based so you’ll notice that theme as you go through photos.
