As a senior photographer on the Seacoast of NH, capturing graduation photos is a truly full circle moment for me. Watching these young men & women heading off to conquer the world is bitter sweet. I have known many of them since they were babies.
Cap & Gown Portraits are a great way to capture this “next step”. You have watched them take their first steps, had their first crush, drive for the first time, and now they are heading out into the “real world”. Let’s remember this moment forever with beautiful cap & gown graduation photos.
This year we are Graduation with limited edition Cap & Gown Sessions. These petite 15-minute sessions are a perfect way to document this milestone. Sessions will take place in the Town House Park across from the Exeter Police Department in downtown Exeter, NH.
Tuesday, June 8th and Wednesday June 9th
Open to high school and college graduates from all towns
Last year when the pandemic hit, my heart broke for the high school seniors here on the Seacoast. Proms were cancelled, graduations in masks with limited family able to attend and no end of year celebrations. The classes of 2020 and 2021 missed out on so much. One thing that we could still do to commemorate this important milestone was a Senior Portrait Session. Over the summer of 2020 I had the pleasure of documenting one of the most beautiful souls I have ever had the pleasure to know.
Natalee has a love of theatre, music, skiing, flowers and the color pink. I remember the pink part because a few years back at herBat Mitzvah, I remember her saying she didn’t care about anything but her pink dress and the candy! Natalee was about to have major surgery on her jaw so we wanted to get her session before that. I knew Prescott Park would be a perfect location for her, between the flowers, the stage and the pier it was totally “Natalee”.
When meeting with seniors to plan the session, I always ask them what their vision is…most don’t really care. Not Natalee…she had her wardrobe all planned out and ready to go. Her favorite RED shirt against the beautiful gardens are some of my favorite. This fashionista really knows her stuff. At the reveal session, Natalee invited her best friend, parents and grandparents to preview her images. I will be honest when I say that I welled up a little watching them all see her looking so grown up. The little girl who was my neighbor many years ago is now and adult heading off to college and it has been an honor to watch her become such a beautiful woman. Both inside and out!
As a Portsmouth, NH Senior Photographer, I have been out scouting locations and it’s getting pretty out there! There are a few dates still available for those in the Class of 2021 who may have missed out. Class of 2022 – NOW BOOKING June, July, August & EARLY September. Yearbook deadlines are in early Fall so plan ahead!

While the world had stopped due to COVID-19 back in April of 2020, here in Newfields, NH we put on one heck of a parade for a special little 4 year old who had just beat cancer!!!! Jack’s mom Rebecca had posted in the local community page asking for a special favor from her “tiny town” and boy did the town STEP UP!
“We would love to give him a parade to celebrate this milestone,” she wrote. “He doesn’t quite understand what this means, but our family would appreciate marking the day with something that makes him happy.”
The response from the community was overwhelming.
A parade of more than 100 cars drove by the Winter family home on Exeter Road Tuesday, honking, holding out balloons and signs like “Jack you Rock” and “You did it.”
As a family photographer in Newfields, NH, these types of events touch me to my soul and after meeting Jack and his family back when he was first diagnosed, I knew that I had to be there to capture this amazing event. There was not a dry eye in the whole town. The Newfields Fire & Police Departments did an amazing job helping to coordinate this “super hero” parade and people as far as Massachusetts drove to be a part of it!

As a Newfields, NH Family Photographer, I know most of the families here in town and most of the dogs too! Ollie can be seen on the lawn at his home on Main Street, walking his “little sisters” to school and begging for food at the Newfields Country Store.
At the ripe old age of 12, Ollie is a kid at heart and loves to play with all of the kids (and adults) here in town. Even my husband is a sucker for a good old fashion doggy kiss from Ollie. His bark is louder than his bite and is more of a slobbery HELLO! When his “MAMA”, Lesley said that he had been having seizures and had a big tumor in his abdomen, I suggested that we take some family photos ASAP.
Capturing those precious family photos with your pet are so important and I knew the Lesley would cherish these photos of her “first baby” forever. We had a super quick session right in the yard and all of us were teary eyed knowing that this could be the last family photos with Ollie.
This is why I do what I do. Whether it is a family pet or a grandparent who is aging, these pictures will be around for years to come and children will be able to look back at them and smile.
If you see Ollie begging for food at the Country Store or just running around town be sure to give him a big old doggy snuggle.

Watching my “kid” clients become teenagers is so much fun! I have been photographing this gorgeous girl every year since she was around 6 years old and am so proud of the woman that she is becoming! Teagan will be graduating this evening from Exeter High School and I am so excited to be there as she receives her diploma.
Mom tagged along for her session and just like most moms, the waterworks were flowing! It is hard watching your babies grow up and knowing that they will be heading off to start their adult lives in just a few short months. This is definitely the best reason to invest in senior portraits. I love to capture those final moments of “kids being young”. Before you know it…they are getting married and having their own children.
The sunset at Great Island Common in New Castle was the perfect backdrop for her senior portraits last August. We were even lucky enough to get an amazing sunset!
Congratulations Teagan and the rest of the Exeter High School Class of 2018! Fly High Hawks!!!

Senior week here in NH continues with Dover High School‘s graduation being tonight. As a Dover High School Senior Photographer, I am always very excited to meet new kids and Drew was no exception. His mom contacted me last summer to schedule his senior portraits and I knew from the moment she booked and said he loves to be in front of the camera, we were in for a fun session (with some tears from mom).
Senior year is such a special time to celebrate all of your child’s accomplishments and let’s be honest…you kept them alive for the past 18 years so let’s celebrate you too! Drew plays football, loves to get dressed up with his buddies and go out on the town AND he is an aspiring model. From the very first click…I knew we had gold.
Mom cried the entire session…I mean her baby is graduating high school (I will totally be that mom). Watching your baby become a man is such an amazing feeling and this mama did good. Drew is a true gentleman and a pleasure to work with.
Our evening session at Fort Stark in New Castle was the perfect backdrop for this senior session. We had a little urban feel, some beach and we threw in some football poses. I love highlighting senior’s personalities and Drew even embraced his inner photographer and asked me to try some new stuff…below was his idea and I LOVE IT!
Congratulations Drew and the rest of the Dover High School Class of 2018!
