  • 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!)

Things have been quiet in blog land, I know.  The end of 2014 brought about a lot of change for me and my family and we ushered in 2015 with open arms, and a lot of hope.  We shed a bunch of tears, smiled when we received encouragement and good news and through it all, remained thankful.  As I often do, I find joy being in the outdoors with my family.  I spent a lot of my childhood canoeing and camping with my family.  My father was the commodore of the Ka-Na-Wa-Ke Canoe Club in Syracuse, NY so me and my sister spent many a summer in between our parents in one of the many canoes my father had hanging from the ceiling of our garage.  We often went camping deep in the woods of the Adirondacks on state land where there were no facilities to speak of.  Once you paddled to your campsite, you were on your own.  Maybe this is why I often find myself being completely okay with solitude.  I find peace being with my family as much as possible.  I find joy setting up a tent and hearing my daughter sleep at night in her sleeping bag.  I laugh when she complains that we’ll be snowshoeing up a big hill and asking me if I can carry her to the top.

My gift to Dan and Lillian were snowshoes this year because in the spirit of togetherness, it was only right that they join me and Max in our adventures.  While I grew up cross-country skiing, I knew that snowshoeing would be an easy transition for me.  It’s been a harsh winter and we haven’t been able to get out nearly as often as I’d like, but as long as I’m with these two (and furry Max of course), I’m a happy gal…..

A couple of months ago, I traveled a little over 3 hours each way to capture Patsy and Rémy’s day at the beautiful Phineas Swann Bed and Breakfast in Montgomery Center.  I always feel honored when couples want me to be a part of their day even though I’m a bit of a drive away (and oh how I love this beautiful state and all of it’s sweet towns)!  I arrived just as Rémy was finishing getting ready and a few moments later, they had a super quick first look, before walking hand in hand to say I do!

I so loved the details on Patsy’s vest.

They were so happy in these moments and it was so neat to capture these memories and happy smiles for them.

After a few quick photos at the Inn, we headed to a beautiful covered bridge not too far down the road.  I’m always more than happy to travel for portraits not only for weddings, but also for elopements.

Rémy’s details were equally as awesome!

As soon as you drive through the covered bridge at the Hermitage Inn, you instantly feel just a bit more elegant and relaxed at the same time.

The Inn was the perfect place for Samantha and Chris to celebrate their day which started off with a first look along the pond……

There was this absolutely amazing light coming through the Birch trees (a personal fav) that I just had to take advantage of while I could!

The covered bridge is not only a great location for the wedding ceremony if it just happens to be raining on your day (and even if it isn’t raining, it’s equally as great!), but it’s also the perfect spot for portraits as well…

The dining area at the Inn gives you the feeling of being home with all of the beautiful prints on the walls and the big comfy chairs that are placed throughout the room.
