  • Hey there! I'm Carrie and I'm so happy you found me!
    I'm the world's luckiest mom to the most beautiful little girl.
    I have a hard working husband that I'm thankful for every single day.
    I've been a professional photographer for 6 years.
    I love my little state of Vermont and the yummy maple syrup it produces.
    I love my vintage belongings that I have around my house that remind me of those no longer with me.
    I love everything Apple related.
    I love Mad Men.
    I love that I have a hard time with not covering my walls floor to ceiling with images of my daughter.
    I love anything Italian food related and have a hard time trying new foods (but I'm getting better!)

The morning light was amazing the day of Jillian and Nick’s engagement session, but let’s just say it was beyond cold!  I can’t quite remember the exact temperature, but I can certainly remember trying to warm my hands up in the car between locations.  It was worth it though!!  After having to reschedule a couple of times before because of the weather, we decided that it was now or never and I’m one that’s always up for an adventure, even if that adventure involves the freezing limbs!  We started off in Rupert, Vermont along the Rail Trail and the scenery didn’t disappoint….

Our next quick stop was at Merck Forest and I must say how much I absolutely love it there!  If you’re looking for a great spot to get outdoors and enjoy Vermont with your wedding party and family, Merck Forest is a greatplace to do it!  There are great trails, some furry animals and even camping all on over 3,000 acres of fun.

Our final stop was the quarry in Dorset, VT.  With that magical morning light coming through the trees, it was an absolute dream to capture these two….

My little girl is far too quickly becoming a little lady.  She’s changed so much over the past year and it’s hard for me to believe that she’ll be turning 10 in June.  If I could tell you just a few things about Lillian, I’d tell you that she’s fiercely independent.  She follows no one and sets her own trends.  She’s okay with being different, but still cares a whole lot about what other people think and feel.  She loves to play sports and refuses to wear anything pink.  She loves to dance when no one is looking.  She’s the sparkle in my eyes and I love her dearly.

While she’s changing on the outside (soon enough she’ll be taller than I am), she’s also changing on the inside.  She not afraid to let her voice be heard and she’s passionate about everything she does and believes in.  She’s becoming her own person and it’s a beautiful thing to watch.  Things have changed so much since I was a kid, which I know is something that every generation shares.  That being said, I sometimes feel like kids are growing up a lot faster these days and I wish that kids could just be kids for a little while longer.  Maybe because she’s my only one, but I know I for one am holding onto her childhood as much as possible because it will be gone in the blink of an eye.  In the meantime, I’ll try to be the best guide I can be through her life.  It won’t always be easy, but it will always be worth it.  She will always be worth it.

Having the opportunity to travel throughout this beautiful state is such a joy for me.  It’s even more of a joy being able to finally meet your couples after having countless emails leading up to that first meeting.  Kaitlin found me on Instagram.  I’ll be the first to admit that my Instagram feed isn’t picture perfect.  I capture my life as it happens……in both the good light and the bad.  And it tends to center around my daughter and my daytime companion, my hairy-can’t-stop-barking-at-the-birds dog, Max.  Thankfully she looked past the craziness and overall boring photos and ventured to my website.  Kaitlin and Brian have that sparkle whenever they’re together.  I could see it in their eyes whenever they looked at each other.  We went around Burlington together and I’m so happy that they invited me along and brought me to a few cool places that I had never been too before!

I loved this spot so much.  The light was spot on that morning (I might be the odd one that prefers morning light over evening light) and it was absolutely perfect in front of this painting that they had spotted while they were scouting possible locations.
