Fall Limited Edition Session | Family Portraits

I am taking a quick break from editing sessions to blog a great Fall Limited Edition Session from last year. The setting for these Fall family portraits was the gorgeous Beaverbrook Association in Hollis NH. If you’ve never been to Beaverbrook, I highly recommend it at any time of the year. There are so many great trails to walk and wonderful wildlife to see and experience.  Back to this session!  I held a series of Fall Limited Edition Session family portraits in the Fall of last year. These were mini-versions of my sessions with a special package and pricing and boy were they a huge success! Fall is such a popular time for photography. The lovely changing colors of the trees in New England provide the most perfect backdrop. Of course, the upcoming holiday season is always a great excuse to update your family portraits.

This particular family had been in need of an update on their family portraits for a while. It had been 13 years since they had their family portraits taken (since Matthew was a baby!).

You wouldn’t have known that they weren’t used to being in front of the camera, though.  They were so natural and you could plainly see that they were a fun-filled family.

A portrait session with Fleur Foto Photography is always a fun time and I think you can see that this family had a blast!  I love getting to know my clients well so that I can ensure that their session is a perfect reflection of who they are.  With a shorter timeframe of a Fall Limited Edition Session, that could have posed a challenge.  However, that was definitely not a problem.  I immediately clicked with this family and got to know them really well during our short time together.

Michelle used to be a hockey player and was quite accomplished at the sport. I have subsequently seen photos of her playing years!  She now owns horses which she keeps on her property. Her husband, Andrew, is from England, so being a Brit myself, we immediately hit it off and shared stories and experience of the ex-pat life.

Matthew is a hockey player and has just finished his first year at the Bantam level for the Southern NH Cavaliers.  He is also a competitive gymnast at Gym Village of Amherst, NH where is a level 6 gymnast.  Yes, he could also pursue a career in modeling, as you can see.

Our session was so much fun, none of us wanted it to end. I am so pleased that this family now has updated portraits and wall art from this session in their family room. I look forward to the opportunity to capturing them again soon!

Holiday cards – Order now, save big!

I know it seems early to be thinking about ordering your holiday cards, but I wanted to let you in on a secret – you can save big if you do.  Holiday cards savings are available at Minted where they are currently offering a great 15% off sale right now if you click through my link below.  You can even order your cards now before you have your pictures ready.  They can either be uploaded at a later time or, I can upload the ones you chose from your session directly to the site.  They have lots of great designs to choose from; I’ve added my favorites to my store (click on the button below to reach that).Holiday photos - snow scene and sleigh captured in Londonderry, NH by Fleur Foto Photography

If you prefer the designs at Tiny Prints, the good news is they are also running a fantastic preseason sale.  Currently, you can get up to 30% off their cards – that’s a crazy savings opportunity, and let’s face it, you won’t be scrambling to get those cards ordered and out in the mail.  Go to my Storefront at Tiny Prints (or click on the picture below) and you can get 30% off your cards!!!

As the saying goes, the cobbler’s children have no shoes, however, this photographer’s children have had their Christmas portraits taken…..and of course, my youngest son lost a tooth last week.  Just the thing I was hoping would NOT happen prior to their session.  I made sure I got their portraits done early this year so I could take advantage of these fantastic sales.

So why not get those holiday cards ordered and that item off your to-do list, with the great satisfaction of getting a great price in the process!

Good genes and good times – family portrait session

This summer was a little different for our family.  My husband is fortunate enough to work with a company that gives its employees an 8 week sabbatical every set number of years of employment.  We took full advantage of that this summer and packed our time with lots of trips and experiences for us to enjoy as a family.  One of those was to rent a beach-front house in Rye, NH.

Both my husband and I love this area of New Hampshire and this town.  The house was just minutes’ walk from a lovely state beach, and right on the shoreline.  It was a perfect spot to just relax, listen to the waves and watch the sunrise from our bedroom window.  Since the house happened to have three bedrooms, we  invited my mum to join us from Scotland for the two weeks.  My boys had a lovely time just being with grandma and I think she had a nice time just taking walks along the coastline and reading books on her kindle on the deck in the sun.

I loved us all having time together and was even able to get some lovely shots of my mum in this impromptu family portrait session.

A time for launch and re-launch

 

I was recently honored to be asked to photographically represent my friend Karen’s new organic skincare company Hanu Skincare.  Karen needed everything from stock photos for her many upcoming blog posts, head shots and, she also asked me to come along to both support and photograph her company’s launch party at Karma in Newton, MA.

We had a blast posing around for the head shots and getting the exact shots Karen would need for her blog.  During this process, it was so very apparent the care and the dedication that has gone into the products and the company’s mission.  All the ingredients are 100% organic, with an emphasis on no “fragrance.”  To learn more about the products and ingredients, please read Karen’s blog post on Conscious Cosmetics.
