Hello Again!

When I met up with these two children last week I told them it was like meeting two old friends again. This is my fourth year taking their portraits and I really do love spending time with them. Their session is always one of the Fall season’s highlights.

First Days Of Fall

Fall has officially begun. This evenings shoot  felt like it was the last hurrah to summer. It was a warm with beautiful light to match. I very much enjoyed my time capturing some moments between this mom and her 18 month old son. He was delightful.

Here’s a preview from a recent studio session with a 4 month old girl and her family. This is always a great age to hold a session after the newborn stage has passed. When babies can hold their heads up it always makes for some perfect portraits. This girl was rather adorable and it was a pleasure meeting mom and dad too.

This girl was the star of the show yesterday. Her dog stole the final scene though! We got this shoot done just before the rain started. There are some lovely portraits to prepare for the gallery!

Vermont Daydreams

We were in Vermont just a couple of weeks ago and have just got round to looking through the photos.  Mike and I have come to the conclusion there isn’t a bad place to stay in the green mountain state. This time we were in the Chester area. It was the hottest end to August since 1953. Mike got up before dawn and explored with the camera. These are a few of his images.  Despite the record heat these photos still leave me with the sense Fall is on it’s way. I’m feeling like it’s time for another family field trip up there..asap!

The Power Of The Maple Creemie

The maple creemie has a hold on my family.



Through the whole of the summer we bemoaned all other ice creams. We spend our vacations in Vermont eating them or discussing when we are going to eat them. We even introduced them our family from the UK on a recent trip to Vermont ( We didn’t go just for the maple creemies of course but they did feature heavily on the itenary!) Never underestimate the power of the maple creemie. In my daughter’s case it gave her new found powers to jump on her cousin and give him a good tickling!


It’s A Dogs Life

I have had quite a few child and family sessions recently where the dog has come along too. Dogs can be like two year olds, they won’t stay in one place for long, like to run around and are more interested in having a snack than having a photo taken. Does that sound familiar?

However I have been most impressed with many of the family dogs I have met recently including this young pup. I think the kids here were acting as super role models though. They were patient, caring and showed this puppy they were also the perfect friends. We only planned to have the dog included at the end for a few shots time permitting. I’m glad we managed to fit them in!

Super Siblings

I met these three and four year old siblings earlier this week. They were a real treat to photograph. Sometimes with this age I may simply plan to capture them exploring the area particularly if they are camera shy. Not so with these two. They showed both a fun and gentle side to their character which gave me a chance to capture a real feeling of togetherness. Lovely session!

So Many Great Portraits!

Here’s a preview from a high school senior session last week. I have spent most of this evening picking out three for the blog. I was spoiled for choice as there were so many good ones. This young lady was a natural in front of the camera and despite the hot sticky evening her make up looked fantastic for the whole session! .

It was a pleasure meeting this girl last week. We took her high school senior portraits at her home with some great locations both indoors and out.
