Kyle SBHS 2010

I photographed Kyle's older brother and sister for their senior portraits, so I was really happy to do the same for him. Kyle, his Dad and the French exchange student their family was hosting were heading out to Michigan right after our session to see a hockey game - talk about dedicated!

Kyle was so relaxed and easy to photograph - we go the very last bit of good light on a pretty dark autumn day. Take a look at his video clip below:

Emily & Andrew

I photographed Andy and Emily on Friday in Jericho. We were searching for autumn colors and found some great spots, even though it was a bit chilly! They were willing to play and it shows in their photographs.
Andy and Emily have been engaged for a while and wanted a nice portrait. The wedding is in June, 2010 and I am really looking forward to it. I feel like part of the family now after photographing Andy's sister Julie and her husband Matt's beautiful wedding in August of this year.

Heather & Henry's Wedding Day

October 3, 2009 ~ what a beautiful day! Especially since the weather reports were calling for rain, rain and more rain! Heather and Henry live in Chicago although she grew up in Vermont.

They wanted their guests to have a real autumn experience and chose the West Mountain Inn in Arlington for their reception. The old barn was glowing with light and love ~ just gorgeous. And they cut the cake with a Skilsaw, like real Vermonters!
Check out their short video clip below:

Girls Just Want to Have Fun!

Wow! Elizabeth and Olivia are growing up! I first photographed them in 2004 in their baby-doll dresses and they were sweet little girls. Well, they are still sweet, but not so little.

We had another beautiful day on Monday and the girls were posing up a storm! More great images for the album. Check out their video clip below.

A Style of Her Own

I first met Kaitlin in 2004 when her mom wanted to capture her vibrant personality. I could see then that she had flair and style. The black and white photos were taken then.
Kaitlin was back last week, even more sure of herself and we had a blast with her dramatic sense of fashion. Kaitlin raises lovebirds and she brought in two of her pets for the session.
I think these portraits show a lot about Kaitlin's life and the fun she's having right now! Take a look at the video below.

Michael & Danielle

Wednesday was gorgeous - a perfect day to photograph Michael and Danielle to celebrate their engagement and make 'Save the Date' cards!

I have worked with Michael's family for many years, since he was just a little guy, and it's such a pleasure to meet his true love Danielle. We had a blast just chatting and wandering around Shelburne and Charlotte looking for 'photo ops'.

We went to the beach, the Charlotte Post Office (yes, that's right) and found some beautiful lupines on Greenbush Road.

Michael and Danielle have chosen October, 2009 for their wedding - another beautiful time of year here in Vermont. I can't wait!

Check out their video below and visit again to see the wedding photographs!

Watching them grow!

I first met the family in 2006 when Veve was 5, Gaege was 2 1/2 and Bre was only 1. Ryan and Stephanie's children were so beautiful and we had a wonderful session. The family moved to New Hampshire soon afterward and I wasn't sure I'd see them again, but Stephanie wanted new portraits and drove over from Littleton. Wow! They had grown so much, especially Bre and we had another great photo session.
I photographed the whole family this time and we had a blast. Ryan works in construction, like my husband Ed, so we had plenty to talk about. When Stephanie came back to Vermont to choose her portraits, my grandkids were visiting and the afternoon turned into a fun play date. Maybe the kids can get together again when she picks up her finished portraits - now, you may ask, why don't I just send them to NH? Well, Stepahnie says she likes an excuse to come back to Vermont!
Thank you, Ryan and Stephanie, for bringing your family to see me in 2009!

Hanging by A Note

My love of Celtic music lead me to the Burlington Irish Heritage Festival where I met a remarkable young woman. Hannah Beth is a gifted young fiddler whose first solo album is called "Hanging By A Note".
Her love of music began when at age three, her family moved to Glasgow, Scotland. After returning to the U.S., Hannah Beth learned to play the violin, beginning classical lessons at age seven. When she was nine she went to a Natalie McMaster concert and her love of the fiddle was born.
Hannah Beth is a member of two Celtic groups, Fiddleheads and Switchel and has performed at the Flynn Space as part of the Young Traditions Showcase. She is a natural performer, poised and joyful on stage, and has a delightful personality.
In her words, "Colors? Yes, that's another part of my music. I have music-color synesthsia (also known as Chromesthesia), when the senses cross. In my case I see colors when I play music. My music has many colors that change day to day.
"My world is my music and I can't picture my life without it".
My son Anthony has played the Uilleann bagpipes (Irish) since he was thirteen, so I felt we had a connection. I really enjoyed getting to know Hannah and her parents and I know she is going places!
The music on the slide show below is from Hannah Beth's second album "Eternal Friendship". Enjoy!
