Intimate Vermont Wedding

I had the honor of photographing Ben & Danielle’s Intimate Vermont wedding earlier this month. They are planning a larger wedding later this fall but wanted to make it official in front of their immediate family and a close friend who married them. It was a drizzly day although we managed to sneak out for some photos between showers. I love photographing different types of events and this one was no different – a fun change from more regular size weddings! Congratulations to both of you – it’s clear from being around you BenDanielle (as Danielle’s niece calls them) are a perfect match. Enjoy the photos!

Shelburne Farms Family Photos

I met up with this sweet family last week on Shelburne Farms for some pictures with their daughter Lakey. Lakey had just taken her first steps a few days before but was quickly gaining confidence – it’s amazing how fast kids move from one skill to the next. We had fun exploring and wandering around – enjoy the photos!

Engagement Session at Shelburne Farms

VT-Engagement-Session-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0014

On October 2, I met Meredith and AJ for their engagement session at Shelburne Farms in Shelburne and Oakledge Park in Burlington, VT. Both of these locations were really special to this wonderful couple, and I was so honored to help them make more memories here.

We went to Oakledge Park first. This is the place they walk to nightly from their house. I had never been, so it was fun to explore it with them. We discovered this awesome treehouse as we were getting ready to head to the farm.

Next, we went to Shelburne Farms, where Meredith & AJ got engaged. AJ got thwarted in his attempts to propose a few times but eventually got Meredith to the Inn at the farm where he proposed in the garden. He carried the ring in his pocket, and we both agreed that someone would make millions if they made a flat box to safely carry the ring.

Meredith and AJ are just such a fun, warm couple that are so easy to be around. They met while they were students at Connecticut College and have been together ever since! Meredith is studying to be a nurse practitioner and hoping to specialize in pediatrics (in fact, she is interning at Norah’s pediatrician!) so we had fun talking about babies and Norah and different stages.

They are getting married at the Omni Hotel on Mount Washington next year on August 15. Meredith’s beloved deceased grandfather’s birthday was 8/14/1914, so they chose their wedding date to mirror that: 8/15/15! I can’t wait to see them again on their special day!

Norah June 2014

As far behind as blogging June personal photos in October makes me feel it’s a fun look back at memory lane….how babies change in the first year!
Norah-June-2014-0001
June was the early days of eating where she truly made a mess (which if we’re being honest she still does…thank goodness for the doggies!).
Norah-June-2014-0003
This was the month that the dogs realized the value of Norah.
Norah-June-2014-0006
My Dad and Annie came to visit and we had a ball.

I took Norah on her last real estate shoot (she cooperated but I can’t imagine taking her now….she’d want to crawl and explore everywhere!)
Norah-June-2014-0011
Norah rode in a shopping cart without her carseat for the first time (SO much more room for groceries!)
Norah-June-2014-0014
Seeing her on Fia’s lap made me realize how big she was getting!
Norah-June-2014-0015
Still wasn’t crawling but did go backwards so she’d get herself stuck under tables, couches, etc.
Norah-June-2014-0017
Loved visiting the beach and eating rocks (this was a Jeff photo when I was off at a wedding….I love when he sends me updates of what they are up to!)
Norah-June-2014-0018
The doggies at that point were safely out of her reach when they were on the couch…no longer!
Norah-June-2014-0019
We spent Father’s Day at home

A sleepy girl post daycare and post swim at Nana’s house!

We lowered the crib (and then lowered it again a few weeks later!)

Teething? Was a fan of sticking out her tongue that day
Norah-June-2014-0035
Loves her Daddy (and just starting saying DaDa although we’re not convinced she quite connects it to Jeff yet!)

And a post quilt show playdate with her future photographer buddy Brennan my friend Kathleen’s son

Yacht Club Rehearsal Dinner

The night before Jessie & Pat’s beautiful wedding we gathered at the house for the rehearsal and then headed over to the local yacht club for dinner. It’s amazing how much the weather can change from one day to the next – Friday afternoon was as bright as can be and the water was glowing. I always enjoy photographing the rehearsal dinner because it really allows me to identify all the important people and also get them comfortable with me. Jessie & Pat’s families were immediately welcoming and it was fun to see some familiar faces from other weddings I’d photographed – enjoy the photos!
