Sometimes there are days where everything just feels right! The weather is lovely. The people are kind. The ceremony is touching. The location is perfect. Kelsey + Brendan’s fall wedding at the Inn at Weathersfield was one of those days, and I’m so glad they asked me to join them. Picking favorites from a day like this feels impossible; so many hearty laughs, beautiful settings, perfect details. Where can I even begin? It’s hard to…

There is nothing like the early morning fog on a Vermont lake. Melissa knows this; she has spent most of her summers on this exact lake, Lake Morey, at a girls’ summer camp that feels like stepping off the whirling merry-go-round of daily modern life into a place where you can breathe, swim, read, hike, and learn. The kind of sleep-away camp you read about in novels or see in movies, but this camp is completely…

One of the best things about our chosen path in photography is getting to meet new people and make new friends. You may recall Megan + Glen and their beautiful daughter Gabby from family portrait sessions we’ve published here; we actually met them at the wedding of their besties Nicole + Scott two years ago, and we were beyond thrilled when they asked us to be their photographers for their own wedding day. In what ended up…

Reyne + Mark joined us with their daughter Aubrey for some casual family portraits in the park this fall. We love family portrait sessions like this; we can just imagine Aubrey growing older and looking back on these images, amazed at how small she looks in her daddy’s arms, at her glowing natural curls and hesitant smile, at the love radiating from the three of them. Family portraits do more than show what people look like…

Part of why we love what we do is that we get to meet new people all the time. And sometimes those new people introduce us to their friends, and suddenly we have lots of awesome in our lives. We met Megan + Glen at Nicole + Scott’s wedding earlier this year in Naples, Florida, and were so excited when they asked us to take their daughter Gabby’s 2 Year portraits this summer. We went…

Jessica and David were among my first clients, way back before Pogo Photo, before Steve, before Florida, in the early years of my college studies at SCAD. I met Jessica years before that, when she was directing local plays in Vermont and cast me as Celia in As You Like It (and we both discovered that acting—and memorizing lines—were not my strong points, though it was a fun experience). Far, far away, Jessica met David…
