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 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!!!!
I am a hypocrite.. I admit it. I don’t necessarily feel like my “likes” on fb defines my business. However, being in a new place, I would like to see some new faces too! Word of Mouth has been my biggest, amazing advertisement. I am so thankful when people do refer me. It makes me feel all warm and gushy inside knowing the love of my chosen career makes people happy and they love and appreciate custom portraiture as much as I do. In a business where most prosumer cameras’ price points are pretty reasonable and having a photography “business” is easy as addding “photography” to your name, it’s a challenge to set yourself apart. Thankfully I have a client base that truly can, at a glance, know the difference. I HEART all of you that do.. THANK YOU!!!!

I first discovered MillieLee Designs while doing one of my many “window shopping” afternoons on Etsy. I fell head over heals for her beautiful creations. The dresses were simple with a flare and the patterns classic and gorgeous. Something I look for when shopping for my girls. Did I mention Milli Lee’s dresses are also Organic? Organic, made in America and supporting a small business, love it!!! Etsy is the place I shop first when I am on the look-out for everyday clothes that also photograph well and I can hand down from girl to girl. I am not a “trendy” Mommy, sometimes this disapoints my girls, but I think they will grow an appreciation for all things classic and timeless. There seriously isn’t a day that goes by when we don’t get compliments on the girls’ appearences. Comfortable, yet beautiful is my standard. Yes, my girls are allowed to play in the mud, go barefoot and climb trees, just not in Etsy treasures. lol.
Here are just some of the gorgeous creations you will find in Milli’s shop…
One of my beautiful clients.. she was just a few weeks old when I first photographed her. My, how the time has flown!
All hair accessories are also products made from love found at Etsy. Support the small businesses and Moms who put so much love and their talent into each of these products. You really do get what you pay for and I choose to do my part in supporting small business women like myself.
I was truly excited to meet this handsome little man. I was a referral from his Auntie and so honored to photograph this once-in-a-lifetime session. We were able to capture him sleeping and oh-so-sweet and awake to interact with Mom and Dad for thier portraits together. Thank you so much “K” Family.. I am so happy you loved his portraits as much as I do!
Around The Bend Photography is a Full Service, Custom Boutique Studio. Including custom product choices with your session gallery is part of our service.
With each Newborn session we will show Custom Birth Annoucements, a beautiful way to announce the arrival of your precious addition. We work with you to use complimentary colors and any information you want to include. These are 5×7 flat, double sided announcements and include envelopes. You can choose a more “boutique” style folded card as well.
Also available are Custom Storyboards, really no better way to display many images in one design. Our most popular product! We are so pleased to offer custom framing for our storyboards, as sizing of most storyboards are unique as the product itself. Classic frames as well as Custom frames from The Organic Bloom are available. Organic Bloom frames can be matched to the colors of your nursery.. what a beautiful addition that would be!
