Professional family photographer serving the Southern VT and Northern Berkshire regions.
Welcome to my blog! Here you can check out highlights from previous sessions, learn more about how to plan for your session and see more of my style and way of working. Hope you enjoy it!! And if you do, feel free to leave comments!
I couldn't wait to photograph these two cuties, especially after I pulled up to their family's bucolic Vermont farm! Not only was the location beautiful, but so were these two's smiles. Aren't they adorable?
Can't wait for next time boys!!!
This family session was a long time in the making. Booked almost a year in advance and then rescheduled several times on account of rain, it was so wonderful when everything finally came together for a beautiful family session on a historic estate on North Bennington, VT.
Three generations are represented here. It's a family tradition of theirs to get everyone together for family photos. What a great way to stay connected and close with loved ones!
I loved hearing the story of how these two lovebirds met many moons ago. <3
And what a bunch of fun grandchildren!
Thanks again M family for the honor of documenting your family!
Mommy & Me Mini Sessions
Wow. It's been months since I've taken the time to blog. I apologize. In addition to it being one of my busiest years yet for my photography business, it was also busy in my personal life. I was finally pregnant after over a year of trying. This was a difficult pregnancy for me for many reasons but I'm so thankful for every moment of it. Our daughter was born the end of October at 34 weeks 1 day healthy and beautiful. Stay tuned for a blog post all about her in the near future.
Motherhood is always on my mind. It's a powerful, complicated, wonderful force. The bond between mother and child is incredible and one worth celebrating. Mommy & Me Mini Sessions I held in the Spring just in time for Mother's Day were designed to do just that.
I know I'll treasure every photograph I take of me with my children. These test shots I did with my son are some of my favorites. Can't wait till this coming Spring to get new ones with my daughter too.
Because of one of the rainiest Springs to date, we had to photograph on a few different days and at different locations. It was tricky tracking down any flowering blossoms that the wind and rain hadn't taken away. But we found a few spots and made it work.
First up was this gorgeous mom and her daughter duo, Lindsay and Brixton. Lindsay is one of the strongest moms I know and her strength sets an incredible example for her daughter.
Isn't this little lady just stunning? The camera definitely loves her!
Kaitlin and her son were my next mother and child combo. I feel so lucky to have been photographing these two for several years now and watching Landon grow has been a joy! He's turned into quite the silly, smart, funny and loving big kid! And those curls! I'm envious!
I love the connections and memories I captured of and for these two women. Their convictions and bonds with their children are some of the strongest I've ever witnessed. Keep up the amazing work ladies!! Your children love you so much and they are so blessed to have you as their mothers. And I feel blessed to have such amazing clients whom I consider friends. <3
Whoa. This summer has been flying by and I haven't blogged at all!!! Time to rectify that with the adorable Cecilia's session from this past May.
This sweet little lady and her siblings were in the studio and brought with them so much cuteness and just overall sweetness. The big kids all helped me get great smiles and giggles from their baby sister. And at the end, they all got to get in the photo with lots of snuggles and smooches!
Also got to break out one of my favorite props, my doll crib, which I recently repainted too!
Doesn't she have the most sparkly eyes?
Love how this group photo turned out. There were so many giggles and a few tickles in there too to get those beautiful smiles all around!
It was so wonderful photographing these kiddos again. They're always so sweet and anytime I've hung out with them, I'm always left with a smile as big as theirs because they're just so cute and such a great group of kids! Hoping my son and his future sibling will have the kind of bond these children do. <3
If you're interested in booking a Child Portrait Session with me, I have a few openings left for September and October then I'll be taking a break to get ready for the birth of our second child. You can find out more information about Child Portrait Sessions here. Feel free to message me for more info or to book yours today!
Cooper's Baseball Cake Smash
When little Cooper's mom contacted me to schedule a baseball themed Cake Smash, my brain started spinning with so many fun ideas for the setup. Dad agreed to bring some of his baseball items from home including the batting hat we ended up using. I managed to find a mini baseball bat, just his size, at the local thrift store along with some mitts and weathered baseballs. I made the banner out of more vintage style baseball stripes and colors and Mom ordered a cake from A-Frame Bakery in Williamstown, Ma that was the perfect baseball cake for the occasion!
Cooper was hesitant at first but eventually got into it. Jury's still out on if he liked the taste of it or not, but he seemed overall happy. And no tears! Oftentimes babies have no idea what to do during a Cake Smash and cry, which is a totally normal reaction to this new situation. Cooper was very chill and just rolled with the punches.
And I'm so excited to now be offering Splash Sessions following the Cake Smashes!!! I found this awesome tub at one of my favorite local antique shops (Seiferts if anyone's interested) in nearby Hoosic Falls. It was perfect for a quick little scrub after getting all sticky with frosting beforehand. And Cooper really seemed to enjoy himself! Even splashing and giggling! What a cutie!!!
It was so great meeting this lovely family and photographing them to mark this milestone. I hope I get the chance to photograph them again in the future!
