News flash – it was raining in New Hampshire last Sunday. It seems like its been doing that a lot lately…and two engagement sessions scheduled to boot.

I called Joanna and Ryan – “What ‘cha want to do?” Not even a moment’s  hesitation – “Let’s shoot in the rain!” was the response, then ” The rain won’t hurt your camera, will it?” (more…)

A little east of Bangor, Maine is the small town of Holden. It’s actually the first place in Maine I experienced – went there on a rare family vacation long time ago when I was a kid – and it started an affair with the state that’s never ended.

Jon’s an artist, managing to do portraits – of the painted variety not photographic variety – for a living.

Today was the  bridal show in Portsmouth, NH sponsored by The Bay, 98.7 FM (http://www.987thebay.com) – and it was a testament to the hardy nature of Maine and New Hampshire brides ( and a few grooms too) – an overnight storm dumped a fresh half foot of snow on top of the ice-covered streets and walks.
