I had the priviledge to photograph this sweet little man. He will be in no shortage of attention or love! Future Hunter and I can’t wait to see him grow through my lens.
I have had the extreme priviledge to watch Claire grow over this last year. She has a big personality and I love, love the expression she gives through her looks. Happy Birthday Beautiful Girl!

I first Photographed Kayley as a Senior a few years ago.. she was living in MA then and has since located to Hardwick, VT. She contacted me about doing a fun couple’s session. I met up with Mike and Kayley in Saint Johnsbury, VT and we then moved to a few locations that I frequent between there and my studio in Monroe, NH. We ended our fun, modern session in my studio and despite it being a bit windy and chilly during our session, it was a fun time and the result are images that capture this young couple in this amazing time in their lives. Thanks Kayley and Mike!!! -Sammi
A blog post.. you must all be shocked. I have had an unbelievably busy Spring & Summer and going into a hectic Fall Schedule. I decided to take a little break from my vacation to make sure I remembered to enter an image for the Chic Criqique Fall Cover Contest. I heard about it a while ago and had an image in mind, but time got away from me and looked at my date book where I had written down the deadline and thought, why not.. nothing ventured, nothing gained.. right?!
Here is Stunning Ashley from a Vintage Inspired Shoot myself and my friend Lisa did in Montpelier VT. Ashley is one of the sweetest girls ever and a spirit I love. I count myself lucky we met a couple of years ago and look forward to seeing her shine as she goes on an incredible journey to work with some amazing names in fashion.
We had a little fun in the studio today in honor of Valentines Day. Went a little Audrey Hepburn with hairstyle and she had fun being a ham in front of the camera.

I know I have neglected my poor blog, but in the height of Senior Portraits, I have a good excuse. My third year as a HS Senior Portrait Photographer, this has been such an amazing year. I adore photographing Seniors, especially from the area where I started it all. It’s reassurance the 45 minutes to see me isn’t so far after all.
Sarah, the youngest in her family was my first senior girl this year. The hectic world of relocating gave me doubts I would be able to get in the full swing of Senior Portraits this season, but Sarah told me she knew she wanted me to take her portraits when she saw images of a senior friend from last year. What a fantastic compliment. I feel as though I have more then a professional relationship with my clients and meeting with Sarah and her Mom, Carol proved just that. Thank you so much for choosing me to capture these truly important portraits.

My new Red “Lola” Epiphanie camera bag arrived today! I absolutely love it! My old camera bag was really not my style. It served it’s purpose well enough, but always seemed bulky and not comfortable. My Epiphany bag is just my style… truly gorgeous and very well made. It will fit my canon cameras and L lenses just fine. This way, my camera can really go everywhere! Don’t forget to enter the 1K giveaway Here. You could win a Photography session worth over $500!!!!
