A group of New Hampshire photographers have gotten together to take on a blog project where we all focus on a particular theme each month (during the winter). This month’s theme is “A Day in the Life”, and the idea is that you can follow the entire project in one big circle by clicking the links at the end of each post, which will bring you to another photographer. So make the rounds and get to know some of the talent that New Hampshire has to offer! Big thanks to Kristen of Kristen Reimold Photography for visualizing and spearheading this project. She has, in the year that I’ve known her, brought together more photographers in this area than any other vehicle I can think of. She finds people that Google cannot seem to reach! So I thank her, for many reasons, but in this case for continuing to introduce me to other photographers right here in NH. We work alone in this industry, so finding others and connecting with them even in such a small state makes it feel so much less vast.
So this was my day, shot on Wednesday, January 18th. I wish I could say that my days are normally more exciting, but 99% of the time, this is what it looks like as a full time mom, and only a tiny, minutely part-time photographer. I don’t get a lot of adult interaction, just two small kiddos, and a husband. Send coffee!!

To continue following the blog trail for this photo project, please visit Michelle Heath of Michelle Heath Photography in Ashland, NH to see how she made meaning of this project.
A remarkable fact about this session is that it was shot in 23 minutes flat. I thought the clock in my car had broken when I hopped back in from the 35 degree chill. Timestamps on the photos confirmed: 23 minutes had elapsed from the first frame to the last. It was definitely a fast-paced event. I think everybody was cold and trying to move it along as quickly as possible. It was definitely much quicker than I would prefer, but it worked out and everyone was restored to their warm cars soon enough. 🙂
This three-generation extended family session came about because they were all in town for the holidays. What better way to take advantage of your special time together than to remember it through photographs that you can enjoy long after everyone has gone home? One thing I do know, is that nobody already has time for this sort of thing. You really have to plan and MAKE time for this. It’s truly a labor of love. It’s so easy to get caught up in all the things we have to do, and it takes nothing less than a true priority in planning to make things like this happen. I commend them for this!
Sisters, nieces, moms, dads, grandmothers, daughters, grandbabies, husbands and wives, aunts and kids…… this session had it all. I adore their purple color scheme. So cohesive and striking!
One of my favorite products that I started offering this past year is the mini-accordion albums. They are absolutely adorable, and the perfect way to highlight your favorite photos from your session in a little pocket-sized album. Available in two sizes, a 3″ x 3″ square or a 2.5″ x 3.5″ rectangle, you select your favorite 10-12 photos and I design a perfectly pocket-sized takealong album for your purse, desk drawer, or thoughtful gifts for grandparents or family members. They come with a frosted sleeve to keep it protected, and feature a lightly magnetic cover to keep it shut–when you don’t have it openly displayed, of course.
It comes in your choice of colors for the cover, or a custom designed photo cover. Sold as one individual album, or enjoy a savings on a set of 3 identical albums. These make such perfect gifts that you’ll want one to keep and a couple to give away.
