five years

Brighton State Park Vermont camping

I love this man. I’d say it’s as simple as that – but it’s not. Five years of marriage is a sweet reward after 13 years of being together, growing and adapting as a couple. We’re just a couple of kids, but we’ve spent nearly half our lives together. Wild. He puts up with my […]

married: Elsie and Oliver at Kingsland Bay State Park

Kingsland Bay State Park Vermont wedding

I kicked off wedding season with a true highlight: Elsie and Oliver’s wedding at Kingsland Bay State Park! The three of us have several ties and I was honored to get the call to be their for them on their wedding day. Oliver is a phenomenal photographer and Elsie runs her wonderful family-owned newspaper company […]

The Last Day

Audubon Nature Center Huntington Vermont

Yesterday I was asked “Are you a dirty thirty or a flirty thirty?” while I was cutting a beautiful Mirabelle’s cake given to me by my newsroom colleagues at the Burlington Free Press.  I paused because I realized I didn’t have a big blowout birthday party, I wasn’t splashing martinis Manhattans late night and I didn’t […]

married: Basin Harbor Club wedding

Basin Harbor Club Wedding

I couldn’t have ended my 2013 wedding season on a better weekend than at Chris and Katie’s wedding.  See, Katie and I go way back.  Once upon a time, Katie introduced me to her best friend, Tom, back in our high school days.  We didn’t go to the same high school but every once in […]

heat wave in the city

Manhattan NYC Instagram Hipstamatic

  I was in New York last weekend during the heat wave.  100 degrees.  Besides seeing my friends, the only thing I want to do when in New York is walk.  I want to walk everywhere and wander because living up here in the country everything is by car.  Everything is door to door, find […]

married: Jess and Mark’s Portland, Maine wedding

First Parish Church Portland, Maine wedding

I left my Green Mountains for the coast of Portland, Maine this weekend to photograph a dear old friend’s wedding.  Mark and I worked together at the Burlington Free Press and when he designed my beautiful photography website a few years ago it was decided that WHEN, not if, but when the day came that […]

the sunrise holds much promise

Carolina Beach North Carolina

Let’s start with the best one and work backward.  Even though I was on vacation, I wasn’t sleeping in much.  The slow mornings started before sunrise with a pot of coffee percolating, each family member stumbling onto the balcony in their pajamas for a sleepy glimpse at sunrise while my dad occasionally worked over the […]

slipping into summer

Snake Mountain Addison Vermont

Homebodies.  Tom and I left our city life behind several years ago to wave the white flag and retreat to Vermont.  At the time, going back home was a needed relief but left me longing to do my own thing, away, apart from where I was raised.  I spent 7 years in Boston, living on […]

on island time

Plum Island Newburyport Massachusetts

Peaceful, relaxed.  Running away to Plum Island was absolutely necessary after a hectic work and personal schedule.  I stole Tom away for a few days, nabbed some last minutes tickets to an unbelievable tUnE-yArDs show (which I regret I didn’t take any photos of, but I suppose that means we were having too much fun) […]

a vermont christmas

Christmas in Vermont

We had a great Christmas.  Busy as always with a lot of faces to see, Tom and I celebrated with nearly everyone this year and even managed to see a few unexpected faces when my brother surprised us with 40 hours of Super 8 and various home video footage.  Wow.  Not only could I see […]
