Capture this moment forever with custom portraits from our studio. This session includes an amazing 20×20 Framed Art Series Collage. Family Images are also included! 603.638.3014
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
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.

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!!!!

My PSA to end this post… Please be sure to seek out a professional photographer/studio for your Senior portrait experience. A Professional will know how to get the most from your Senior’s session. They will have the professional equipment and most important, the knowledge and training to use it. Professional Photographers will know how to deal with many lighting situations. They will know how to professionally edit & retouch when necessary. Many hours of training and investment have gone into professional software. They use only professional labs and they are calibrated to their labs color requirements. Do they have a website or blogsite? Look at their portfolio for consistency in their images. Blurry, soft images with obvious color and lighting issues are probably a good indicator a “photographer” needs more training and skills. They may use lingo, like “photo shoot” but a “pic” is not a replacement for a professional portrait.
I knew the Custom Frame to display my newest portrait in my new living room would be something from The Organic Bloom. I knew I wanted something different from everything else I saw in the general market, and The Organic Bloom’s custom frames are just so gorgeous and unique. You can make it your own with custom colors and a design that works with any decor. I ordered mine to incorporate the colors of my new living room and would work with any portraits if I choose to change them out from year to year. Like a piece of furniture, it was an investment. It’s timesless and no matter if I change up my styles and colors, it will remain a constant fixture. Each of my Fall Family clients will have a chance to win an 8×10 frame with their choice of style and colors from The Organic Bloom and a portrait print from their session. Around The Bend Photography is proud to be a Full Service, Custom Boutique Studio.
Pictured is a Twin Stack Frame in two different colors and a glaze added to the inside frame, custom made for a 16×24 portrait. As you can see the over-all dementions are larger, which is one of the components that makes these frames so amazing. Each mounted print 11×14 and larger from Around The Bend Photography is beautifully textured and sprayed for protection.
A few spots left for my Fall Family and Children Special… email me for times and dates firstname.lastname@example.org or call 603.638.3014
I am loving all the beautiful colors available for Fall dressing this year. Purples, Burgundy and Grey seem to be every where. Almost anywhere you shop or in your very own closet, I am sure you will be able to find coordinating your family will be easier then you thought. It’s all about staying within the same color tones and complimenting hues. I will have a few more ideas coming your way next week! Don’t forget, I still have a few spots left for my Fall Family portrait special later in the week of October 3rd, and afternoons are the perfect time for gorgeous lighting of all the seasonal colors. email@example.com
Here is an example for dressing your family for your Fall Portraits.. styles available at; Old Navy, Gap, Gap Kids and PiperLime
The trees which line my drive-way remind me that Fall is knocking on our door. It still may be August, but everything is quickly changing. I only offer this special once a year and the weekend dates are quickly filling up. I have some weekday afternoon and mornings to accomodate as many people and schedules as I can. These are the perfect opportunity to update your family portrait or capture your children another year older. Portraits always make the perfect gifts for the Holidays. Whether a classic framed portrait or an amazing, custom storyboard. Don’t miss out!
**Holiday cards are two-sided flat, custom designed and come with envelopes. You will have a choice of 3-5 designs in your private gallery to choose from. Up to (2) design changes will be included. If you are an individual or family who does not wish to have Holiday cards, you may choose two additional gift prints** A complete pricing guide for additional portrait prints, wall portraits, exclusive Fall special products and business policies will be given at session time. If you wish to have these prior, please inquire.
My Fall specials are perfect for families who haven’t a lot of time, sibling portraits or couples. Because of time limitations I am not able to accomodate larger families (more then 6 people) or newborns. Please inquire about regular scheduling. firstname.lastname@example.org
The R Family traveled from the Lamoille Country area of Vermont for me to photograph their beautiful daughter. Their session was a Christmas gift from a friend, one of the best gifts someone can give. Thank you!
20×20 Storyboard. Storyboards can be beautiful work of art on children’s bedroom walls. For example, images done in black and white, the complimentary colors in the designs can coordinate with their room. Add a custom frame from The Organic Bloom and you’ve definitely made an amazing statement that will never go out of style.
