Hello! I’m Kristy, of Kristy Dooley Photography. I’m thrilled and honored to be Burlington, Vermont’s premiere babychildfamily and extended family photographer specializing in natural light, custom on-location photography. I serve Burlington, South Burlington, Williston, Essex, Shelburne, and the greater Chittenden County area.

My sessions are on-location, typically outside, highlighting the beauty of Vermont. I consider myself privileged to be able to “work” in some of the area’s most picturesque locations.

Sessions are scheduled in the morning or evening (to ensure ideal lighting) at an agreed upon location, and are approximately one hour. After booking, we will start confirming all the fun details regarding location and clothing!


As a kid, I could be found decorating my bedroom with photos from our family albums, and thirty years later not much has changed! As a former teacher and a mom of two, I’ve found my professional “home” with family photography. My photography is genuine, playful, and designed to capture the unique personalities of your family. The experience of your session is as important to me as the final images. I want you to look back on your images and see your children’s faces, as well as remember how much fun you had together while they were being taken.

With family sessions my biggest goal is to capture that treasured image of all of you together.  I strive to create a fun, relaxed, and playful environment to capture a combination of both posed and candid images.  All I ask is that my clients come prepared to smile, laugh, and enjoy their time together!
