PORTRAITS | Stephanie in the Grass

last week, my friend Steph went with me to a farm down the street from my house so i could take some shallow depth of field portraits. i really needed practice, and she was kind enough to oblige. love her!

i caught a mosquito biting her!
when you zoom in all the way on the original file,
you can actually see it in her skin. totally grody!!

the above two photographs capture the very essence that is steph
as in, they are totally awesome and hilarous...

BACKLOG | Offload

I have been taking quite a few photos lately, I just haven't sat myself down to process them.

Two weekends ago, Nate and I went to Butternut Farm in Rochester (we're not sure, it might actually be in Strafford, NH) to pick some blueberries and peaches. If there's one thing I love more than anything else about late summer/early fall, it's picking fresh fruit! Since then we've gone blueberry picking again, and today we went apple picking.

pumpkin flower, so pretty! and shh, there's a bee sleeping inside ...or something.

from hand - to mouth!

This past Saturday, we went up north (I am from the Lincoln/Woodstock area) to visit for the day. My friend Cara-Jean had her baby, Sofi Mae, on September 1st, so I stopped over to do a few infant portraits of her. What a beauty!!!

I haven't taken pictures of my niece, Vivianna, in quite a while, because she's in her "terrible twos" and pretty much doesn't stop moving. I have a really hard time getting a decent portrait of her, especially with a large aperture, so I kinda haven't tried very much lately. These are what I got the other day.

Here is my upcoming schedule, I love fall for this reason!:
9/12 - Wedding
9/26 - Wedding
10/3 - Wedding
10/11 - Wedding

And I even have an assistant for all of them. Very exciting, I LOVE shooting weddings with an assistant!!

E.SESSION | Megan & Max

On Tuesday, Nate and I drove down to Newburyport, MA to meet up with Megan & Max, a really cool and fun couple who are getting married on October 3rd. Before hammering out the details of the wedding photography, we got right down to shooting their engagement session before we lost the beautiful sunset light. What a blast, this couple rocks!

And this totally trips me out... the top photo below is the original photo I took. Just for fun, I tried flipping it around so her hand wasn't upside down, and it looked like it popped out toward me instead of being indented in the sand. Do you see it, too? Nate said he sees it the opposite way I do. What do you see?

Crazy, no?
