Hello, Vermont!

Last weekend I met with Maddie and her parents in Burlington, Vt., to do senior portraits on Lake Champlain and downtown. Maddie will be moving to the city next year to attend the University of Vermont — so exciting!

Highly Honored

Over the past few weeks, I have been photographing portraits of high school students for the Valley News’ annual Athlete of the Year award, given to a male and female from each of the 18 schools the newspaper covers. It was a privilege to meet and photograph so many great young people! Follow this link to see all of the athletes who are honored. Below are a few of my favorites:

Clockwise from upper left are Hanover’s Bri Laycock, Lebanon’s Ryan Milliken, Sunapee’s Katie Frederick, Thetford’s Connor Brown, Mid Vermont’s Rachel Seale and Woodsville’s Cooper Davidson.

Maggie Cassidy, the newspaper’s super-talented Web Editor, put together this fun video from footage I did with a second camera on the shoots.

Portraits at Prom

Over the past three years, I’ve been doing a photo booth at Sharon Academy’s annual prom, where my daughter is a student. The prom is open to every student in the school. I enjoy photographing them with their dates, classmates, study and commuter groups. They’re a great group of kids!

Happy Anniversary

Last weekend Aurore and Luke celebrated their first wedding anniversary with their wonderful nine-month-old son with a family portrait where they were married — on the shores of Lake Champlain in Burlington, Vt. What a treat! Follow this link to see more and to order prints in the Galleries section of my web site.

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!
