I just love everything about this happy family-of-three! I had the best time at their recent family session- celebrating their time as a family of three and their baby on the way. We met at one of my favorite locations in South Burlington- it’s full of amazing views and beautiful flower gardens this time of year. This happy little girl stole the show- she was just full of smiles, giggles, and lots of energy. This was my third time photographing her and I love watching her personality grow. Even though she innocently (and comically) told me otherwise, I have no doubt that she will be a wonderful big sister. I can’t wait to hear when their new baby arrives- a big early congrats to this fun family!



I think everyone in Vermont is thinking the same thing- Spring at Last! It’s always amazing to me how in a few short weeks everything can turn from brown and dreary to extra green and (sometimes) sunny! I host two days of Family Photography Mini-Sessions a year, and it’s always a blast to see and photograph so many families in one day. We lucked out with amazing weather which has been a little hard to come by this spring! I say it every year, but I really have the most amazing clients- smiley, happy, and tons of fun! Here’s a look at some of my favorites from the day~




This handsome little man was just nine days new when I met him and his parents at their home for his first photo session. He was an absolute gem- wide eyes, content to snuggle and sleep, and he even showed off his dimples! I met his parents earlier this year for a maternity session, and I just knew these two would be great parents. We had a great time exploring the light and space in their home- focusing on their new role as a family of three! Their outfits even matched the nursery perfectly. I just love in-home newborn sessions as they are so relaxed and comfortable- just as they should be. Here’s a look at some of my many favorites from the day.



It’s been awhile since I shared any images of my own family on my blog, and our recent move to South Burlington seems like the perfect time to do so! We’ve been waiting (fairly) patiently since early December when we sold our previous home for our new home to be completed. We are thrilled to finally be living in it! South Burlington has been on our radar for years, and when the right opportunity came up, we jumped! Our girls were wide awake, ready to put their suitcases in the moving truck at 6:30AM on moving day, and we’ve been settling in ever since. The photographer in me has been having a blast exploring the new light everywhere- inside and out! We can’t wait to meet more families in the South Burlington area, and watch our new neighborhood continue to grow! Thanks for looking~



I recently met up with this beautiful baby girl, the new addition in a super sweet and happy family-of-three. This sweet girl was just a few weeks old, and her parents seemed beyond comfortable and confident in their new roles. I love meeting growing families in their home- it creates such a relaxed session environment. I had a wonderful getting to know these happy parents, snuggling their new girl, and capturing the in-between moments as they tended to the needs of a newborn. Mom decorated the nursery adorably- I loved hearing the story behind their safari themed decor, and it photographed beautifully! We even got a quick visit from both new grandmas, who were thrilled to sneak into a couple of treasured photos. Here is a look at some of my many favorites from this fun session.
