October Fall Adventure!

Today my friend (and fellow photographer) Aimee and I went on a little photo excursion!  We ended up going to a beach in Gloucester and then wandered around a farm in North Andover.  Here are some of my favorites from the day!

Can you tell we had a great time?  There were some pretty rockin' crab shells and seagulls all over the place!  Check out this purple guy!!!

 After we had our fun at the beach, we had a little road trip to North Andover... And the farm fun begins! The farm had a petting zoo area and there were about 10 super super super cute fawns. They are just the cutest!

And they were hungry too! It was pretty amazing, there was this white pipe next to a food dispenser where you could give the deer food - when you put quarters into the dispenser, all the deer jumped up and came over ready to eat!  That little guy couldn't wait and was just chewing on the fence in anticipation!

^^ A personal favorite ^^

This guy was especially unique.  This was a beautiful white swan that was pretty upset about being in an enclosure full with mud, and was pretty occupied with taking his drinking water and cleaning his dirty chest feathers when we first walked by.  But, come our second passing, he kept (might I add quite aggressively) biting and pulling the fence with his beak.  Although a bit alarming at first, it made for some pretty cool photo opportunities.  I love that decorative lump of skin hes got on his forehead!

Of course, we ended our adventure with a trip to the farm stand area and although most of the pumpkins, apples and corn was gone, we had some photo fun with these beautiful gourds! Happy fall everyone! Thanks for checking out my blog! Many more great photo sessions to come - weddings, families, engagement shoots, pet sessions, and more!

There is also a much earlier blog post that showcases a lot of my wildlife work shown in the slideshow as well as some of the thought process behind my frequent visits of zoos and farms in the New England area.



37th Annual North Easton Harvest Fair!

A couple weeks ago, I had the great pleasure of having a table to promote my photography business at the 37th Annual NRT of North Easton Harvest Fair!  This was my first time at the Sheep Pasture, and it was just as beautiful and friendly as I had imagined it to be. It was a special feeling arriving to the farm and setting up my work alongside the 100s of other local businesses, artists and crafters.  I was told this fair averages 5,000-10,000 people coming each year!  While the majority of tables were set up outside in the fields, I shared a lovely little barn with three painters, a bluegrass band and another photography studio.  I had a blast meeting tons of new people, showing my wildlife work to kids, and promoting my portrait business!


I had art prints as well as framed works from my wildlife collection for sale.  I got such a great reaction from my work and it was such a pleasure meeting so many fellow wildlife enthusiasts! (What better place to bring my animal work than a farm!)  As fun as it was to show my personal work, I had a great time meeting all the families that stopped by my table and talking to them about how fun outdoor family photoshoots are in the fall!  I had some cute little information packets for people to take with my business card, a special fair-goer's coupon and some information about how JClements Photography does portraits.  I had such a great Sunday at the Harvest Fair, and hope to work further with the lovely families I got the pleasure of meeting! Enjoy the photos and I will be posting a link to my wildlife collection very soon!

Thanks to everyone who made this day super friendly and fun!  I will definitely be planning to set up a table at the Harvest Fair again next year! Hope to see you there!
