Exciting things coming up...

I'm so excited to announce that I'm making some changes in the near future... I've finally outgrown my current website so stay tuned for the d├ębut of my new and improved website coming in the next month...

Also as I start to thaw out from the extremely long and snowy winter I'll be posting more pictures... lots of personal work and with my wedding season starting up in about 6 weeks there will be many new weddings to view too.

The other exciting news is that I'm expanding my current photography offerings and looking for ways to bring clients something new. As you know I'm really a documentary photographer who specializes in weddings... now I'm looking to bring those same skills to some other aspects of everyday life and other special occasions.

Unique Engagement Sessions

I'm very interested in offering unique engagement sessions that are really a reflection of the couple's personalities... So invite some friends to dinner to celebrate and I'll be there to record you in your world, when you are most comfortable. Or love carnivals and fairs... take me with you and we'll make pictures of you having a blast on the rides or playing games. Or how about pictures of your actual proposal? Can't get more real than that... Have another idea... please share...

Birth Photography

This is subject very near and dear to my me. I am the mother of two beautiful children and the very lucky wife of a talented photographer... When my youngest daughter was born my husband brought his camera and made (tasteful) pictures of the time during labor when our families came to share the anticipation, during the emotional time when we first met her and after when our family had the joy of meeting her too... One of our biggest joys now is sharing those pictures with our now 5 year old daughter who will forever have beautiful, tasteful pictures of her arrival into this world. Since then I have wanted to give this gift to other families... Right now I'm looking for one or two families expecting a new baby in the fall or winter of 2008-2009 to share this with. The first two sessions will be at no cost if the births are at the Brattleboro Memorial Hospital or the Cheshire Medical Center / Dartmouth Medical Keene. If you think you would be interested please contact me to discuss the options etc.
