I’ll admit it – I love snow. Enjoying four glorious seasons is a large part of what brought me to New Hampshire. I find it relaxing and peaceful to watch it snow. I find it exhilarating to snowshoe through the forests, across frozen lakes, and among the mountains(especially on clear,…

Senior Portraits at the Orchard

By | Nature, Portraits, Senior portraits | No Comments

Orchards aren’t just for picking apples. They also happen to make beautiful settings for portraits. Nicholle thought Apple Hill Farm on the north edge of Concord would make an ideal choice for her senior portrait session because of its scenery.

Our second day in Zermatt dawned just as marvelous as the first. We decided to explore and hike the mountains on the other side of Zermatt from the Matterhorn. That area gives the classic look of the mountain that everyone knows. We first took the Gornergratbahn, a cog railway and the…

Exploring the Alps around the Matterhorn

By | Fine Art, Nature, Scenic, Travel | No Comments

Going into Zermatt, Switzerland reminded me of visiting a Disney resort. No cars are allowed (except for some electric vehicles), so you have to take a train to the town. Although people do live there, the majority of the people you see are tourists and everyone in the shops and…
