I got to shoot some new portraits of my brother and sister-in-law when I went home to North Carolina to visit a couple of weeks ago. Newlyweds of just three years now, we still call them the “lovebirds” and we hope they’ll always stay that way. 🙂
Every fall Greater Manchester Restaurant Week is a highly anticipated time for me, and I make all kinds of notations on my calendar to make sure my husband and I are able to partake in a dinner out or two. I get so excited when the menus start appearing online and on the Facebook page. How to choose!? I see it as a great opportunity to try out a restaurant that we normally might not visit.
Unfortunately this year we didn’t have a babysitter during that entire week, so bummed as I was, I enlisted the companionship of two of my friends who joined me for dinner out on October 18th–my birthday! Yes, my birthday (and wedding anniversary) usually falls during Restaurant week so that is yet another reason to go out to eat. 🙂 Like I need reasons!
My friends and I went to Hanover Street Chophouse for our dinner, because who could resist their amazing $29.95 prix fixe menu? This was a place I have long wanted to try so of course there is no better time than Restaurant Week to check some places off your list. Our meal was fantastic, and most enjoyable. I couldn’t resist snapping a few pics of each of my three courses as they arrived. Too beautiful not to! Shown below are: HSC Classic Caesar, 12 oz Prime Rib, and Tiramisu.
Restaurant Week happens every year in October, so be sure to check it out next year! A similar event happens each April called Manchester Eats Week, so for those of us who are big fans of downtown Manchester dining, we don’t have to wait an entire year. 🙂
Erika Follansbee is a natural light food photographer in Goffstown, NH. She specializes in inviting, ambient photos of real menu items in a restaurant’s own unique environment. The result is distinctive, compelling, and mouth watering.
Last week I did some headshots for Lora, who wanted some updated portraits of herself to include in a job search. How savvy is that? I think that really says a lot about her determination and understanding that a well-done, naturally relaxed and pleasing photo can leave a lasting impression with those people that she meets or will meet in the future, regarding interviews, networking, etc. She was a natural for her photos with that big bright smile, and I’m happy that now she has some great photos that are worthy of being posted along with a resume as impressive as hers is. 🙂
I offer a special package just for headshots, which is a quick version of a mini-portrait session and includes a look change and two high-resolution files on disk. Contact me for details!
