Melissa came to the studio recently for personal branding portraits for her yoga business, Satya Yoga Studio in Plymouth, NH. We created headshots, yoga portraits, and portraits that simply celebrate her! Later, Melissa’s husband Matt and their sons joined her for individual and family portraits. This whole family is fun, easygoing, and beautiful. They were a joy to photograph. Hair & makeup by Ashley Conn
Sara Jayne and Joe recently celebrated their 38th wedding anniversary. They wanted portraits that show their casual side, a side that, except for snapshots, they had not represented in portraits. They chose a folio collection that they’ll always enjoy on their walls and desks. Here are some of their choices.

This is Velvet Brown. Velvet is a professor of tuba and euphonium at Pennsylvania State University. For nearly 25 years, she has been spending part of her summers in New Hampshire to perform with the New Hampshire Music Festival. This is the third time I’ve had the honor of photographing Velvet. This time, her son Liam joined her. It was a great day! Hair & makeup by Ashley ConnWhen Liam was done with his portraits, he asked if he could photograph me. I handed my cell phone to him!
“Our portrait session was a soul-satisfying family experience from start to finish. It captures a unique turning point in my life. We all really loved working with Maundy and we look forward to enjoying our portraits for many years.” – Trudy
Hair & makeup by Ashley ConnTrudy is transitioning in her career, and about to earn her master’s degree in human relations. We started the session with new business headshots for her.Then, individual portraits for Trudy and Kacey, and portraits together.Next, Marty and Zeph arrived (with guitar and mandolin!).I loved having this beautiful family in the studio. They are all musical, and frequently broke into song and dance! Thanks to Kacey and her long arms for this fun shot of all of us at the end of their session!Their folio collection includes a handmade linen box, filled with matted prints.
Laurie booked a special portrait session for herself, her daughter Marykate, and her mother Eileen. It was a wonderful day, and the studio was filled with love and laughter.

We created a beautiful collection of portraits. Here are some of their favorites.In the early stages of our planning, our mood board began to take shape. Eileen mentioned that she would love to wear a fancy 1920’s-style dress. So I found one for her!
It was a celebration of sorts for Maddie, Erica and Sean. They had a portrait session in part to celebrate the amazing young lady that Maddie has become as she enters her senior year in high school. It was also a celebration of themselves as individuals and as a family.
Hair & makeup by Ashley Conn “What an amazing experience, start to finish! From the first contact we had with Maundy, it was obvious that she wants her clients to enjoy every part of the unique process and come away with portraits that will be cherished for a lifetime. She works to bring out the different parts of each person’s personality and show the beauty in that depth. We absolutely love all of our portraits! Maundy is truly talented and a passionate professional who will deliver results beyond your expectations.” – Erica
Patty and Pam are sisters who own Patty Stewart and Associates, New Hampshire insurance agents. They have an office on Main Street in Plymouth. Patty’s son Colby also works with them. They wanted a range of images they could use for business—headshots and portraits for their website, brochures, and even one portrait they could use as a billboard image.
They also used this opportunity for Patty to have family portraits and to have a fun “Sisters Day Out.” After we finished the business portraits, Patty’s other son Trevor came by to join her for family portraits. Later, the ladies changed into formal dresses and we created some glamorous, and some fashion-inspired images.

It was a great day in the studio with Diahnn and Diron. Not only are they gorgeous people, but they are kind and gracious. It was a pleasure working with them.
We started their photo shoot with personal branding photos for Diahnn, and then we created some Vogue-style shots. Diron joined her for some portraits of his own (would you believe he had no portraits of himself?). We then created portraits of the two of them. Here are some of their favorites:

I am proud to announce that these three portraits each won a bronze merit award in the International Portrait Masters Awards competition & accreditation, first quarter 2018 submissions. Nearly 7,000 images were submitted from around the world and were judged anonymously by eight internationally renowned photographers.
In 2017, my ten submissions earned ten bronze merit awards. I am working towards an international accreditation as an Associate Photographer. This process is another way I can continue to grow. The guidelines involve not only the technical aspects of a portrait, but the emotional aspects as well.
Thank you to everyone who trusts me to create portraits for you.
