This is Grant. A new and lovely addition to the planet. We know he won’t remember us when he grows up but we’re happy we got to meet him. Before we met him, he used to hang out here.

So engagement session season is in full swing and we’ve been very much enjoying getting to know and hang out with our awesome 2011 couples! This is one of the best and most important reasons that an engagement photo shoot is such a great idea. It gives us a chance to build a rapport with our soon-to-be brides & grooms, and shows them that getting shot by Birch Blaze is not so bad. In fact, it’s pretty fun! We recently caught up with Gregg & Rachel in one of our favorite places, Portsmouth, New Hampshire for their e-session and let me tell you, they’re super-cool folks! As per usual, we had lots of laughs and lots of fun. Here’s the proof…

    Heidi & Kevin - What a CUTE couple!! Love the colors they chose to wear… So looking forward to seeing their wedding on the blog in the future! :)ReplyCancel

If ever there were two people who would surely be amazing parents, it would be Melissa and Matt. We had the great privilege of documenting this wonderful and anticipatory time in their lives last month! It is a bit chilly these days for baring a belly out of doors and they live not too far from us so we took the party to their house. We love incorporating the element of “home” into a shoot like this. Especially knowing it will soon hold a new, tiny family member. Fun fact: Melissa and Matt still have their first stuffed animals, who are snuggled comfortably in the nursery..surely very excited about their new friend. ;)

We had so much fun with them. Melissa and her beautiful belly were a joy to photograph. And Matt deserves an A+ for enthusiasm… he was working it!

During the spring-autumn wedding season most couples are praying for clear weather. We’re happy to say last season we had a perfect record! Of course, with New England winter in full swing, one learns the art of embracing whatcha’ get. And this particular winter has been a force to be reckoned with. Which brings us to Thomas and Denaie :) The day of their engagement session, we were expecting a storm of some kind, though we wouldn’t realize what we were in for until later that day! Everyone was willing and sufficiently bundled (except for Kerry, who forgot his boots) so, we set out for the magical Nestlenook Farm. A beautiful resort, complete with Victorian architecture, ice skating pond, charming, fireplace-equipped warming huts, horse-drawn sleighs and oh yes, reindeer! It’s a happy place.

We, of course, did get our snow. Halfway through our session, it started coming down like crazy! It was beautiful. And Thomas and Denaie, even whilst getting precipitated upon, were enthusiastic and fun and great to be around. Thomas even cleaned our car off for us before we left! We are fond of them and hope they remember the day as happily as we do. Hopefully these photos will bring them good memories for a long time.

We’re excited to present our latest offering, which is Jessica and Justin’s chilly but lovely Newburyport, MA engagement session! They were so much fun and laid back and willing to let us have our way with them (photographically speaking). So, we all braved the cold January day and wandered our way through the town to see what we could see. Newburyport is so charming…crackly cobblestone, weathered brick and widow’s walks kind of charming. And full of history. It has much to offer in any season! And of course, the element of a wonderful couple makes things even better. We’re eagerly anticipating their beautiful May wedding. Thanks for being such good sports guys, we had so much fun!

And now, the fruitage of our wanderings….. :)
