Thanks New Hampshire Home Magazine for the cover shot on the May/June issue!

It has been a long time since I have given much thought to the mechanics of how we “organize",” or keep track of, the garden here at Juniper Hill so I thought I would do a quick walk through for folks who might want to adopt a system similar to ours.Read More
It’s been cut, it’s been forced, it’s flowering…might as well get artsy with it. I shot this vase of forced Forsythia through a grey background using just the ambient light from a side window which allowed me to expose the window behind the background. Then, to give the background a brushed metallic look to complement the stool, in Photoshop I added a layer of Adobe Paper Texture Pro just over the grey background, masking out the flowers, vase and stool.
I had such great fun shooting this session with Miss Claire! All you need to do is hand this girl a prop and, well, just check out the images below.

With the unrelenting cold outside, at least it’s nice to have a little taste of Spring inside.
I have England and Spring on my mind today.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all my friends and followers. Wishing you peace, happiness, and all the best in 2019!
This is the trail that enters our woodlot. Bordered by ancient stone walls, during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries it was the coach road that connected the small towns of Greenfield and Francestown, New Hampshire. In the mid 1800's there wouldn't have been any trees here as land was cleared on both sides of the road for pasture during the Merino sheep craze that swept through New England at the time.
There was just some light snow last night and this morning but these powder coatings usually make for the best winter snow photos.
I love old barns and it was fun to get a peek under this one in Hancock, New Hampshire.
I realize it’s a little early in the season to begin complaining about winter. However, waking up every morning to below freezing temps has already made me yearn for warm summer evenings like we had on this shoot, standing amid acres and acres of sunflowers, in southern Pennsylvania.
