As he has been doing since 1979, Euclid Farnham visited children at the Tunbridge Public Library as Santa on Saturday (Priscilla, Euclid’s wife, usually attends as Mrs. Claus but she was not feeling well). It’s impressive to see how he treats each visitor with such kindness and respect.

This weekend was bittersweet for my daughter and her senior year classmates at Sharon Academy, as they were part of their final play performance at the Chandler Music Hall in Randolph, Vt. Interim, where the entire school works together to produce a musical, was yet another success with Newsies!

Over the weekend I did senior portraits of Kay at her family’s home in Springfield, Vt. Kay is a special young woman – she was a caregiver for her grandmother, who lived next door, and wore one of her grandmother’s blouses for her portraits.

Earlier this month I photographed Thomas and Lauren’s wonderful celebration down the road in Washington, Vt. Friends and family travelled long distances to Angeltree, the beautiful home of Thomas’ aunt and uncle. I was honored to be there!

The Tunbridge World’s Fair is an annual stop for me since moving to Vermont in 1989. As a warm afternoon fades into a cool Saturday night, the fairgrounds becomes lively and bathed in interesting light! Here’s a few of my favorites from tonight:
Last weekend, I photographed Logan and Nick’s wedding and reception nearby in Tunbridge, Vt. It was truly and honor and pleasure to be a part of their wonderful celebration – Logan is the sister of one of my daughter’s closest friends. And Logan and Nick’s infant daughter Cecilia is a sweetheart, a true reflection of themselves!

I recently spent time with Scott’s family as they gathered in Killington, Vt., for their annual family reunion. In addition to portraits, I documented their relaxation time and was with the family while dinner was being made, getting priceless reactions to lobster being cooked!

We just returned from a whirlwind visit to the Golden State, looking at four colleges with our daughter, who is a senior this fall at Sharon Academy. Flying into Los Angeles and leaving from San Francisco a week later, we had a great time getting a feel for what it’s like to be a student in California. Here’s favorites from the visits (and a few side trips!):
From top: The William H. Hannon Library at Loyola Marymount University overlooks the Westchester area of Los Angeles; our daughter photographs the view, enhanced by the sea breeze from nearby Playa Del Rey; She takes a walk with other visitors on the campus trails at University of California-Santa Cruz, on 2,000 acres overlooking Monterey Bay – I said if she went to school there, she’d not only walk a lot, but be a Slug as well (the school mascot!); One of the campus bulletin boards at UCSC reflects the popular use of staples; scenes at dusk from Santa Monica Pier, including the Hot Dog Stick stand and a slackliner; The town of Locke, population 75, was built in 1915 by Chinese immigrants near Sacramento and now has several museums, including the Dai Loy Gambling House Museum; A customer enjoys a drink at Al’s Place in Locke; Dusk sets in at the end of the road over Monterey Bay in Santa Clara.
The Chelsea Funnery staged two performances over the weekend of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Town Hall in Chelsea, Vt. The Funnery is two-week camp where over two dozen actors from ages 12 to 18 learn their lines and performances from scratch. Our daughter’s been going for a half-dozen years and it’s totally amazing to see what they accomplish!

On a beautiful Saturday evening, Tess and Jon were married in a lovely ceremony at Shir Shalom in Woodstock, Vt. I enjoyed my time documenting their celebration with friends and family!
