Nicole and Phuong's Engagement Session in Boston Massachusetts

I had a great day on Sunday working with Nicole and Phuong.  I say "working with" loosely since I enjoyed my time so much that it is almost wrong to call it work!  Really!  Nicole and Phuong are getting married next year and have been together for quite a while already.  What struck me most was how cute and sweet they interacted during the engagement session.    You would have thought they had just met and are in the beginning of dating.  So cute!  Here they are!

Governor Lynch CCACHC Award Ceremony in Concord NH to Five Exceptional Kids

Governor Lynch hands out awards to exception kids with chronic health conditions.  This ceremony was headed off by Denise Brewitt - Executive Director of The Council for Children and Adolescents with Chronic Health Conditions (CCACHC) in Concord, NH.

Here is a little information for this cause.  Please take a look and see what you can do.

Approximately 42,000 New Hampshire children suffer from a chronic health condition. At least 10,000 of these children have severe to life-threatening illnesses.
The Council for Children and Adolescents with Chronic Health Conditions is a comprehensive statewide advisory and advocacy organization formed to address issues that impact the lives of children with chronic illness and their families in four primary areas:

  • Promoting needs assessments of children and adolescents with chronic health conditions and their families.
  • Serving in an advisory capacity to the State Departments of Health and Human Services, Education, and Insurance for policy and program development.
  • Collaborating with state offices and state office and statewide organizations to enhance community-based family supports that meet the unique needs of children and adolescents with chronic health conditions and their families.
  • Increasing awareness of the medical, social, and educational issues that impact children and adolescents with chronic health conditions and their families.

Shaila's Senior Photography Session - Nashua High School - 2010

Here are some images from my photography session with Shaila.  She was beautiful and a really easy model to work with.  I ended up taking advantage of the situation for her by adding in a couple family portraits as well.  Why not?  They were there - Take a look!

New England Bride Magazine Featured Images - Both July and August 2009 Issues

I am honored once again to be featured in New England Bride Magazine.  I am not only in one, I am in June and July's issues.  I have all the pages with my images shown here.  I thought that one of the articles in particular would be tremendously helpful for my brides and groom when planning their time with me (their photographer) - Here it is: 
"Posed Pictures in a Snap"  - Formal Photos Fast!
Don't want to miss the party while you're having those formal portraits snapped?  You don't have to miss much when you're working with a professional (and organized) photographer.  Find out how you can get all the shots you need for a killer album and be back mingling with your guests in a flash.
Dare to Defy
If you are willing to be a bit less traditional and see each other prior to the ceremony, you can have your formals done ahead of time.  Some couples opt for this in an effort to maximize time with family and friends but it's not the answer for everyone.  Many brides still want that element of surprise as they make their way down the aisle to their bedazzled groom.
Get Ahead
Another option is to do some of the formals ahead of time, with the bride and groom separately so as to preserve the traditional nature of the ceremony.  You may want to have your groom and ushers meet beforehand followed by the bride and her maids.  That way, the only portraits that need to be taken after the ceremony are those that include the couple themselves and the entire wedding party.  Again, this will cut down on the time you'll need to take away from the festivities.
The A-List
In today's world, a who's who list that the photographer will use as a blueprint is a must.  This worksheet should include everyone that needs to be photographed during the formal session and the nature of the relationships.  A photographer needs to be highly skilled at managing some of the often sticky relationships -divorce, death, significant others - that may play a role in the taking (and ordering) of formal photos.  Share as much history as you can with your photographer so that she is aware of and can manage family members and friends in a way the keeps everyone happy.  This will help the bride and groom remain stress-free, and also make the formal portrait session move along quickly.
Plan B
While outdoor photographs are almost always more desirable, be sure to have an indoor backup plan.  Be sure that if you aren't using your function facility as an alternative, you scope out a locale, like an art museum or hotel lobby with a backdrop that will provide some depth and interest to your pictures. It's a good idea to ask your photographer for some ideas - most will have great suggestions based on years of experience.
Team Work:
The secret to great formal shots that won't take too much time is coordination.  Most photographers will try to keep the formal portrait session to under an hour.  A good function coordinator is key in helping the photographer round up key people and keep the session moving along.  If the appropriate information is shared and everyone works well together, the bride and groom can have great formals and focus on the celebration  at hand. ( tell advise all of my clients to select 1 or 2 of their bridal or groom party to round up the key people.  Since I am not familiar with these people visually this will ensure every person is ready and waiting for our formals.  This allows me to move through the process quickly and seamlessly and will save a ton of time).

Manchester NH's Mayor Frank Guinta is at SEA-Consultants-Scientists, Engineers and Architects Grand Opening

I Love photographing at Commercial Jobs - Manchester NH - Mayor Frank Guinta was a guest at the Grand Opening of SEA's newest office in Manchester New Hampshire.  I had the opportunity of meeting a wonderful staff and beautiful new office space for SEA.  This event was catered and the chef prepared a beautiful table of foods and some passed around appetizers.  The caterer (Celebrations Distinctive Catering, Inc.) was phenomenal and I would recommend them to anyone.    

The President of SEA, Anthony Zuena was truly wonderful to meet and he and the Mayor spoke briefly to welcome SEA to Manchester NH.   

Thank you so much for having me their to photograph your grand opening.  Here are some images from their event.
