Giving Back

As the Upper Valley’s Town Meetings begin this week, I did my first video (yikes!) and portraits of a few elected officials for the Valley News and asked why they felt public service was important. Web editor Maggie Cassidy’s editing skills made the video shine!

From top, Euclid Farnham, Tunbridge’s moderator for 35 years; Kelly McConnell, Hanover school board member for two years; Mary O’Brien, on the Hartland selectboard for 14 years; Marianne A. Blake, elected as Windsor’s Lister/Assessor for 25 years; Jeff Peavey, Lebanon school board member for 14 years; Phil Carter, Canaan cemetery trustee for 10 years.

Times Three

Last week Cara and Dean invited me back to photograph their growing family in Barnard, Vt. It’s my third visit for family portraits over the years — I also photographed their wedding in 2008. It’s a treat to be a part of their lives! Follow this link to see more photos and to buy prints in the Galleries section of my web site.

Family Tradition

Over the weekend Chris and Larisa asked me to photograph their young family during a college reunion in West Windsor, Vt. Getting a portrait done is an annual tradition for them — this year, the family grew with their friends’ kids joining the fun!
