While snuggling up in your comfy clothes in front of a toasty woodstove, cup of hot cocoa in hand, has it’s place, a New England winter is best experienced outdoors, in the thick of it! Birch Blaze Studios is here for it. Whether your family loves to be racing down a New Hampshire ski trail, ice skating on a frozen pond, or snowshoeing through a pristine, snow-glazed woodland, why not celebrate these epic memories with a NH winter family photography session? We had so much fun tagging along with this adorable family, exploring a pine grove after Saturday’s snow storm. The girls were all in and super cute (tiny comedians, actually), and they more than earned their hot chocolate served from a trusty old fashioned thermos! There are so many ideas to be explored and memories to be captured in the winter! Click here to book your very own New England winter family photography session with Birch Blaze!
Brent, Marcy, and the boys flew in from Southern California to spend some quality time at the Family retreat in Wolfeboro, on Lake Winnipesaukee. We were thrilled they trusted Birch Blaze Studios to capture moments that we’re pretty sure they will enjoy for many years to come. Once the boys were comfortable that we weren’t too weird, we got rolling and, despite some raindrops, had a lovely time! Here are a few of our favorites from the day…

John is pretty much the coolest jazz cat you you’re gonna meet. He’s the upright bassist for swing jazz band, Clyde Bisbee & The Wheelhouse Revelers. We had him in-studio a while back for his band portrait session. When you have a fellow artist that channels George Clooney like this dude, you might snap a few extra frames.
Hey y’all! Welcome to our new spot for blogging our Birch Blaze Studios’ portrait sessions! We felt it would be best to keep things related to our portraiture, as well as some personal interest posts now and then, all on the same website. This is a family portrait session we did in Los Angeles a few months back. We photographed Michael & Ashley’s wedding in NH a few years back and were thrilled to meet up with them in California for a family portrait session in Santa Monica. We began the session on Santa Monica State Beach and finished up on the famous Santa Monica Pier. We LOVE playing Southern California family photographers, even if it’s only when we visit from time to time! So, without further ado, here are some favorites from our family beach photo shoot….
As we get ready to say goodbye to this crazy year of 2016, I’m struck with how many icons of my youth I’ve watched melt away. I feel the weight of this year continuing its descent right to the very end like a giant thumb turning and rubbing out any vestige of its targeted foe. After hearing the news yesterday of my very first big screen crush, Princess Leia, that is to say, Carrie Fisher, passing…today came the dizzying news that her Mother, mid-century starlet Debbie Reynolds had succumbed to what one could only assume, a broken heart. The weight of losing her beloved Daughter simply too much for the 84-yo moviestar. We don’t normally post photographs taken by other photographers, but in my search to somehow make sense of, or perhaps at least better understand the impact of this kind of tragedy on a family I came across an uncredited photo so hauntingly beautiful…and at the same time so poignant, so touching, I had to share it. This incredible black & white image doesn’t even show faces, but its documenting of the Daughter-Mother bond is so powerful and heart-wrenching, particularly in light of what has now transpired. Chilling. The photo so perfectly demonstrates “the art of real,” and the reason that no matter how we feel about ourselves we must allow ourselves to exist in photographs. Rest in peace Debbie and Carrie…
