Kyle ~ CTE 2015

I photographed Kyle on a gorgeous end-of-summer day.  Autumn was definitely in the air!  Kyle attends The Center for Technology, Essex and is planning a career in plumbing.  He's a thoughtful, quiet, fun loving guy with a real love for animals.  I first photographed him at age one year, although, of course that is impossible ;-)   Have a great senior year, Kyle.

Here's another great image of the whole family.

A Life in The Air

I chatted with Dean about making a meaningful portrait for his retirement after over 30 years with
U.S. Airways.

He brought a model of the plane he flew and I decided to incorporate a map of the Northern Hemisphere where he primarily worked.

"Work" seems an odd description of his days in the shining clouds.  How does one concentrate?

Dean's enthusiasm and interest in the world are very obvious aspects of his personality.  We talked so much in our session, I am surprised it only took an hour!

May the road rise to meet you, Dean, as you head out on your way to a new adventure.

Wedding Day

October 5, 2013

Melissa and Krissy's wedding day was serene and beautiful.

The Vermont air was a little cool, but the couple and guests were all so caught up in the moment, that it warmed their hearts!

At Shelburne Farms, one of the most gorgeous settings in Vermont, Krissy's sister officiated at the lovely and simple ceremony.  There were tears and many, many smiles.

I know you will always remember this day and am so glad I could be a part of it.

Congratulations to you both and to your family and friends!

Melissa & Krissy

Melissa and Krissy came from Illinois to get married this weekend!  They picked just the right time of year with beautiful foliage and have planned a memorable day.

I can't wait to see them tomorrow at The Essex Resort & SpaThe Inn at Shelburne Farms and Shelburne Vineyard.

They'll celebrate the special day with family and friends, taking back wonderful memories to share for the rest of their lives.

Welcome to Vermont!

Adele & Claire

Adele and Claire are soon-to-be graduating high school seniors, twins and best friends.

We found some beautiful autumn backgrounds and had a wonderful session.

They brought their "twin" dogs along, too, for some spectacular and unique images.

Meghan ~ SBHS '14

 I hardly recognized Meghan.  It has been a few years since I last photographed her family, then later her older sister Sarah's senior portraits.  She was cool, calm and collected with a radiant smile and really blue eyes.  Meghan and her mom and I wandered around Charlotte on an early autumn day, looking for great light and fun backgrounds.  I think we got some gorgeous images don't you?

Check out Meghan's video clip below.  And, high school seniors, if you've been putting off your outdoor session or don't like what you've had taken, call soon because the beautiful days are slipping away!  802-425-4242.

 I met with Greta and her mother and grandmother earlier this week.  She is a happy, lively one year-old with a bubbly personality.

She's interesting in absolutely everything and is so proud of her walking skills!  Perhaps I should say her running skills.  We were all out of breath (except Greta, of course) by the end of our session.

The key to a successful baby portrait session like this one is constant variety and a lot of fun distractions.

A big thanks to Mommy and "Dot" for the energy and enthusiasm that helped make this set of images so adorable!
