Burlington Family Photos

A few weeks ago my awesome cousins were in town for a wedding with their adorable daughter Maggie who you might remember from my trip to Colorado earlier this summer. It was so good to see them again and after a busy weekend we came together to take some snaps of a walking and very talkative Maggie – so so sweet. Wish they lived closer!!

Jane Reinvention Project

Back when I lived in CT I loved having GNO (Girl’s Night Out) once a month with three close photographer friends – Carla Ten Eyck, Nikki Nicole, and Jane Shauck of Iris Photography. We would gather for drinks and talk business, family – whatever was on our minds. This group proved so helpful to me not only for the amazing friendships but also for the business advice and support I got through it. Since we’ve moved I’ve made it back every few months for GNO and it’s one of the things I miss the most. Last winter the girls scheduled a VT GNO (which was actually two nights away!) and we had a blast. Jeff was out of town for the weekend so we had the house to ourselves. Of course we nerded out on goal setting and planning but also just caught up. Carla also got to drive a tractor for the first time – a big highlight. Can you tell how much we laugh when we’re together?

For the past few years Jane has been doing a project on people who reinvent themselves in some way. I was honored when she asked me if I could take part and the trip to VT provided the perfect backdrop to snap some photos. A few are below but please visit her site to read my full interview about “reinventing myself” – thank you Jane!!

Recipe :: Salmon Burgers with Green Yogurt Sauce

Salmon-Burger-0001

I can’t remember how I stumbled onto this recipe but when we had some ground salmon from our farmshare I did some googling and came up with this – it was delicious!!!

Salmon Burgers with Green Yogurt Sauce (via Pain Free Kitchen)
Burgers:
3/4 lb. ground salmon
1 t. Dijon Mustard
a t. plain Greek Yogurt
1 green onion, minced
1 1/2 t. capers, drained and minced
1/4 t. black pepper
2 T. olive oil
Sauce:
2 T. plain Greek Yogurt
3 T. mayo
1/2 t. Dijon mustard
1 large green onion, minced
1 1/2 t. capers, drained and minced
Juice of 1 lemon
Black pepper to taste

Combine ingredients for burger in a bowl and mix gently. Form into patties and place on foil or wax paper. Put in freezer for 20-30 minutes to firm up (don’t freeze them!).

Heat the oil and fry up the burgers on medium heat for 2 minutes per side.

Mix up ingredients for sauce and serve on bun

YUM.

Parent Album :: Simmie & Andrew

Andrew’s Mom chose to design a Parent Album to showcase the photos from Simmie & Andrew’s wedding. She chose Charcoal Vintage Leather for the cover and featured two of her favorite photos on the front and back cover. Enjoy a few of my favorite spreads.

Fia’s Four!

Sadly I wasn’t in town for Fia’s Fourth birthday but I did stop by for a visit on her actual birthday to take some snaps.

Wish I had thought to take this at age 1!
