Saturday was a day spent at a mansion. Specifically, the Governor Hill Mansion in Augusta, Maine. (HISTORY NOTE: The building of the mansion was commissioned by Maine’s 45th governor, John Fremont Hill, to be his home. He chose Maine architect John Calvin Stevens, who designed it in a Colonial Revival style. It was completed in 1902. END HISTORY NOTE) Our friend Kayla has put this event on two years in a row, each year with a different theme. This year’s theme was “Black and White”. Highlights of the evening included a beautiful library, good and well dressed company, delicious meatballs, balcony dancing, and quiet corners to hide in. Thank you Kayla, for a great night!

Recently we had the pleasure of hanging out with lovely little Georgia and her folks for her 6 month baby photos in southern New Hampshire. This was the second Birch Blaze baby “lifestyle” photography session of Georgia’s young life, the first being about 6 months ago when we photographed her newborn session. Babies grow and change SO rapidly! It’s a kick for us to work with a family at regular intervals to chart their growth and development artistically through family photography! We also, of course, think it’s a wonderful thing for families to have professional photographs taken throughout the years, especially when the kids are sprouting up so quickly as they do during these younger years. Now that the leaves are popping out here in New England and the weather is (slowly, but) steadily improving, it’s perfect timing to think about updating your family photos. Our spring calendar is filling up fast so drop us a line to talk about scheduling your session! In the meantime, enjoy some of our favorites from Georgia & Co’s collection. We especially love the last image where Georgia is already practicing her, “Mom! Dad! You’re embarrassing me!!!” face :)…

We love family weddings! Of course, all weddings involve families, but when Mom, Dad and children combine to create a ready-made family there’s an excitement and joy of new beginnings and what’s to come. Jon, Jen & Co. perfectly embodied this excitement and joy and we had such a lovely time documenting their Mount Washington Hotel winter wedding a couple months back. We’ve photographed quite a few weddings at the Mt Washington Hotel, but we don’t get to do as many winter weddings there. Jen & Jon couldn’t have picked a better winter day/evening to tie the knot up in the resplendent White Mountains; the alpenglow on Mt Washington and the Presidential Range was magnificent, the best we’ve seen! Guys, thanks so much for having us and we look forward to working with you again real soon!

Sometimes when things get busy we don’t get the opportunity to blog weddings that are screaming out to be shared. While waiting for this upcoming wedding season to kick in, we bring you one such wedding from recent history, the Mt Washington Hotel wedding of Kerri & Noah. We love shooting weddings at the Omni Resorts’ Mount Washington Hotel, it’s the perfect mix of class and character with no shortage of gorgeous and authentically grand backdrops. This historical, grand hotel was completed in 1902 and retains nearly all of its original character. We’ve also enjoyed shooting commercial and family lifestyle portraiture there a number of times. Nestled in the heart of the White Mountains, it’s the perfect blend of ageless natural beauty and classic architecture. If you’re considering getting married at the Mount Washington Hotel, you’ll find us on their preferred vendors list, drop us a line!

We love documenting growing families, especially when we were there to photograph Mom & Dad tying the knot. Such was the case with little Jack’s parents, Catherine & Artie, whose wedding we photographed in 2012. Artie & Catherine aren’t into wrapping, hanging or lowering their little guy into any manner of newborn props that seem to be all the rage these days (we have nothing against this style of newborn photography—as long as it’s safety first—it’s just not typically our style). They wanted real, everyday-life photos to document this time in their young family. That is our style, after all, our slogan is ‘the art of real,’ so we were happy to shuffle off to Boston and oblige! Welcome to the planet Master Jack!
