contemporary timber frame home in New Hampshire

Last fall, I drove through the Lake Sunapee region to photograph the Loon Crossing Residence for Yankee Barn Homes. This beautiful home is as stone’s throw away from Pleasant Lake in New London, New Hampshire, and feels very secluded; a perfect retreat. With two separate photography sessions, we captured both the exterior and interior architectural details of the home.

When it comes to architectural photography, planning is everything. It’s important to work around the schedule of the designers, marketing managers, and builders, but especially the home owner. Residential photography is a job that requires entering someone’s personal space and being as accommodating as possible, while making sure you capture compelling images. For this home, we opted for an interior session while the home owner’s were in town, but the exterior of the home was being painted in the coming weeks. Since we wanted to showcase the new color scheme, we returned a few weeks later to capture the exterior just before dusk.

At the interior session, the home owners and YBH marketing manager were extremely helpful in the success of the shoot. We rearranged furniture, tweaked the styling, added in props, and had stand-by models which were the home owner’s two adorable dogs!

The two sessions captured the beauty and character of this timber frame home, both inside and out. It was a joy to photograph everything, from the overall spaces to the unique details, that make this home special. Take a look at the complete gallery below.
