Christy and Sadie are in the throws of new love and they are so fun and sexy together that I thought it would be fun to practice some “flow posing” with them this weekend. I had to post some of my faves, because they are so beautiful that I hope it makes every couple want to head down to my studio for a “love” session:
Andrew and Malisa came up from Boston for their E session with an extra family member–their dog Charley (a chocolate lab). We had so much fun incorporating Charley into the romantic portrait session and she (yes, Charley is a “she”) even got to do a little window shopping afterwards. I can’t wait for Andrew and Malissa’s wedding on August 1 down in Manchester. They are so much fun and I can’t wait to see what a beautiful bride Malissa will make!
Girls on the Run is a non profit program that encourages preteen girls to develop self-respect and healthy lifestyles through running. Last Sunday, thousands of young girls participated in the annual 5K fun run/walk at the Champlain Valley Fairgrounds. The event, sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont, included face painting, hair acessories by Goody, warm up activities, medals for all girls at the finish line and music. It was really amazing to see the exspressions on these girls’ faces as they finished the race line and received their medals. I loved being there and photographing the day for BCBSVT.
Yes, you are!
BCBS mascot “scooter poses with the girls–
Look, there I am in the glasses!!!
One of the things I loved about the event was how much diversity there was in the kids who participated. So cool!
Crystal Rock and Cabot Cheese both stepped up with healthy and nourishing foods after the race.
Governor Jim Douglas gives the girls a pep talk!
The warm up begins!
…and the race is on!
such cool medals!
The first place finisher was way ahead of the rest as she came to the finish line to retrieve her medal!!
I loved watching all the parents and coaches celebrate with their kids as they finished the race together. They were all so proud.
Even this participant got her medal at the end!
Give-aways included mini size deoderants for the girls to try (hey, it was great to see them take it!)
Last week, I had scheduled an E session with Alice and Hunter, who’s wedding I’ll be photographing in September. It was a wet and gloomy weekend and we were all set to do the portrait session in my studio. But, after a few minutes inside, we saw that the rain stopped, the sky brightened and so we took ourselves outside for some play time along the train tracks. Inside or out, this couple just lit up my camera and after seeing how they photograph, I can’t wait for the wedding!
The RU12 Queer Community dinner and auction took on a western theme this year, held last Saturday night at the Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center. About 200 attended the annual event and a Rootin’ Tootin’ good time was had by all. Vt. Freedom To Marry’s Beth Robinson was recognized as the Queer Volunteer of the Year and comedy was provided by Comedy Central comic Sabrina Matthews.
