 RenĂ©e and Chip brought over their sparkling Lab pup Trooper for a session on Thursday.  He was a happy bundle of energy!

We had great dog weather - not too hot, nice shade.  Photographing a black dog in the sun is like digging a hole at the beach - you know, it keeps disappearing, filled up with water.

Trooper kept his cool and was a very GOOD DOG.  He got to chew on sticks, jump and play and we all had a good time.

He even held his perfect Lab head
still for a profile shot!

How handsome it that?

Thomas ~ CVU 2012

I've known Thomas a long time and have photographed him and his family many times over the years.

One of the best parts of my job is watching children grow into relaxed and confident people, so it was great to reconnect the other day.

Thomas is thinking about college and gearing up for a great senior year at CVU.   He's busy working this summer at Shelburne Shipyard and likes to be out on the lake so we did part of our session by the water in Charlotte.

If you know Thomas, let me know when you book your senior portrait.  You'll get 16 free wallets with your order and he'll get 8.   Call now to reserve your session ~ 425-4242.

Check out Thomas's video clip:

Family Time

Meet the Holman family from Bryn Mawr, PA.  Mia and Jim like to spend time at Basin Harbor in the summer with daughters Mary Kate and Laura.  This year they brought along their Golden Doodle Sebastian - "Sea Bass" - a fun loving pup with loads of personality.  Mary Kate has graduated from college and is off to a new job and apartment  and the family wanted to mark this milestone year with an updated portrait.

We had a wonderful session and I know they'll look back happily on their 2011 Vermont vacation!

Summer Bronze

This portrait from my archives SO makes me think of summer!

Jill, Maverick and Richie came in a few years ago, but whenever I look at it I think of happy and carefree sunny days.

The boys remind me of my own brothers, shirtless and barefoot until September.  I love the beautiful golden skin tones and sun bleached hair.

This makes me smile and appreciate how a captured moment can live on in our hearts.
