Missy & Amy’s Deerfield Engagement Photos

This is a very special couple to me as Amy and I go back….way back.

Feast your eyes on this gem – Amy is in the rainbow and I am in the orange jumpsuit – sophomore year of high school at the Denunzio Disco.
We loved to dress up in high school and this was one of the first opportunities of the year so we went all out. I believe I am sporting some silver eye shadow….I know you’re jealous.

Our other sidekick Sarah is sporting the green star shades and the multi-colored glitter tube top – boys come on over 😉

Amy contacted me last spring to share the happy news that she and Missy were engaged and we all had lunch to get re-acquainted.

Missy & Amy’s wedding will mark two very cool firsts for me – the first time I will photograph a wedding outside of the U.S. (St. John!) and also the first same-sex wedding I will photograph – I can’t imagine a more fun couple to share both firsts with.
Appropriately we ventured back to the place where we met and did our photos at Deerfield. It was Missy’s first daytime trip to campus and since the kids were on break we had the run of the place and gave her the full tour. We had a grand time and with their sidekick brown lab Tiggy sniffing around we never stopped laughing.

The weather was gorgeous and the light was so soft and ethereal

Tiggy a.k.a. Tiggles 🙂

Missy was a sport to haul herself up on this wall after recent knee surgery – it was worth it 🙂

Love this quieter one.

Tiggy brings it back to her 🙂

Out on the small loop where Amy (not so much me) logged many miles jogging

I can’t WAIT for next July and can’t wait to hang out in the meantime 🙂


Anna & Jake :: Vermont Family Photographer

I first photographed Anna when she was nine months old. The last time I saw Jake he was four weeks old. Time flies and these two are on the move 🙂

Jake is just getting his land legs and LOVED being out in the backyard with all the leaves.

Every once in awhile he still allows a helping hand from Dad but mostly he is just on the go 🙂

Playing Peek a boo behind the tree 🙂

His big sister Anna is talking up a storm and is just so verbal – she is almost three!

My favorite 🙂

Jake wasn’t so sure that he wanted to take time out for a family photo 🙂

Snuggle time before nap and then individual play time for Anna 🙂

She built the entire tower and then gleefully knocked it down 🙂

Painting with Mom

It’s always so fun to see you – glad we got it in before the holidays!

John, Martha, & Nora

I had a fun time at my yearly photo shoot with Nora and her family- I’ve been photographing her since 2007 and it’s fun to see the changes from year to year. This time we drove over to some local barns for a change of scenery – I loved the texture and color.

A little sass 🙂

Outfit change once we were home

Great to see all of you!


I hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend – we got back late last night (with no traffic – woo hoo!) from spending a lovely few days with my Dad but are settling in back at home. I wanted to share some photos of “Snotober” – the freak snowstorm that happened on Halloween weekend.

Most of the snow fell on Saturday when I was about 45 minutes away photographing Mike & Wendy’s wedding. The white knuckle drive back home was not the most fun thing I’ve ever done but thankfully by going slowly I made it safely home without incident! The next morning we woke up to a winter wonderland – the lake had gotten about 18 inches!!
Where did the cars go?

Re-uniting with the snow 🙂

So pretty and quiet early in the morning

It was very unusual to see white but not a frozen lake- it happened too quickly!

Thankfully the lake had a lot more snow than Connecticut but almost no branches down. We lost power for about seven hours (but have a generator so no big deal!) but then mid-day on Sunday it came back on. From reading Facebook messages we knew that Connecticut had gotten whalloped so enjoyed the peace and quiet while we had it!

Love the colors with the snow (part of the reason why so many limbs came down in CT – the weight of the snow and the leaves)

That afternoon we ventured home to check on our house – photos of that to come (it was a MESS!!!)

Dogs in Bed

Hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving with loved ones – remember to give someone a snuggle today!!
