CVOEO: A hand up, not a hand out

CVOEO Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity

I had feared that by leaving a daily newspaper I would miss opportunities to tell stories about my community. Just the opposite.

married: Jonathan and Kim at Mount Philo

Mount Philo Charlotte Vermont wedding photography

Loved working with these guys.  Found myself melting behind the camera.  They were fun, comfortable and incredibly silly with killer smiles.  Jonathan and I have known each other from afar, but hadn’t met until his wedding day.  See, he’s a fellow Vermont photographer (check him out here!) and reached out to say hello years ago […]
