  • 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!)

From the moment that I first met Josh and Julie, I knew that they were meant to be.  You could see it in their eyes when they looked at each other and the way that they talked about their day.  They were about as laid back as it comes and since I always try to capture weddings as naturally as possible, it made for quite the amazing day at West Mountain Inn!

Julie’s dress had this amazing simple yet breathtaking quality that I absolutely loved.

The guys were down in the Mill house having a few drinks and laughs.

I loved the haze in the antique mirror as Julie put on her earings.

I shared the below photo on Facebook because I absolutely love this moment.  So much happiness in realizing what they just did and how purely they love each other.

We spent some time around the beautiful grounds at the Inn and I always love that each couple loves different spots for completely different reasons.  Josh and Julie really loved the trees and wanted to take full advantage of being amongst them, and I can’t say that I blame them.

Before they headed off to enjoy some time with their guests, we headed up to the barn for a few photos.

I’m still in the thick of editing the most amazing weddings that I’ve had the pleasure of capturing this year, but I have to stop and say once again how truly grateful I am to be able to say with pride that I capture such an amazing and important day for my couples.  More blog posts coming up next week after I’m feeling a little more caught up (although that truly won’t happen until November!)

In the meantime, a sweet moment from Kelsey and Jevin’s beautiful day at Windekind Farm in Huntington, Vermont…..

Last week, we welcomed a new soul to our family!  It’s been a long time coming according to Lillian as she’s been asking for someone to play with for the past four years and since she knows that we won’t be able to have any more kids, she realized that a dog would be the next best thing.  Me and Dan had talked amongst ourselves telling each other that we really needed to think about finding one sooner or later so that we could at least start planning ahead of time (I’m a list maker so being prepared is a big deal for me!)  There was never a question that we would get an English Setter and the chances of finding that breed that was a puppy at a rescue location was slim to none, so a breeder was the only way to go for us.  This breed is close to Dan’s heart as his dad was a breeder in Cambridge, NY (Battenkill Valley Kennels) and it was important to me that the dog be a puppy so that that it could grow up with Lillian.  Back in June, I just happened to be on the Gun Dog Breeders website which I had frequented often just to get a little more oriented with some of the breeders and I happened upon a listing for a male puppy which is what Dan preferred.  When I went to the website, I was instantly drawn in.  As a visual person, it’s amazing how much of an impact a website can make and the Twombly  Setters didn’t disappoint.  I was instantly drawn in.  We weren’t planning on getting a puppy this soon, but when you know something is right, you just go for it!

So I am pleased to formally introduce Maxwell “Max” Batten…..

Isn’t he just the sweetest little guy ever?!  He is absolutely what I always hoped for in a puppy and so far, he has been a great addition to our little family.  He LOVES to snuggle (as do I) and he very rarely barks (and when he does it’s at one of his toys.)  He of course has the typical puppy biting which Lillian needs to get used too and getting up in the middle of the night is taking some time for me to get used too as well.

As much as I’d love for him to stay this small (because lap snuggles rock), I look forward to watching him grow with Lillian and go bird hunting with Dan.  I think that he’s a keeper for sure, don’t you?!!!
