Fall Family Photos

The leaves are changing around most of Vermont, but last weekend they were just getting going in Burlington.  With a 5 month old and a 2 year old, we didn’t want to stray too far nor take too much time out in the ~50 degree weather, so we headed down to the Burlington Intervale.  The leaves may not have been colorful, but did we ever have a beautiful day!

As any sane two-year-old would on a beautiful Vermont morning, Winslow only wanted to run around and have fun. We took a few minutes off and let him play in the puddle (keeping mostly clean!) before we started up again. He may have been squirmy in some of the posed photos, but his cuteness makes up for it completely!

What an adorable family.  Thanks for spending some time out in the brisk fall weather!

Outdoor Family Photographs on a Beautiful Vermont Morning

This past Saturday, I spent the morning at Oakledge Park in Burlington with Courtney, Kinsley, Andrew, and Connor . We had a great time wandering around the park, taking a combination of posed and candid photos. When you have an almost four year old involved, you never know what you’re going to get, but both kids were in good moods, very well behaved, and we had a great time making some photos.

We started on the swings, spidering, which turns out to be one of Kinsley’s favorites things to do. It was a good way to relax and get into the swing of taking some photos.

Then we settled into some posed photographs for a little while

Totally unprompted, and they struck almost exactly the same pose.

If you go to Oakledge, you can’t miss out on the giant treehouse, so we headed up there next.

What’s Cody drawing in the sand?

“I love you, Dad” of course.  What a great kid!

I think this is my favorite series from the whole day!

It’s hard to argue with a quote like this, “The pics are SOOO great THANK YOU!!!!  It really was fun shooting pics! The best part was the kids thought so too!”  I had a great time, too, Courtney!  Thanks for the opportunity to hang out with you and make some great photos.

Painting a new house

Tawny & I just returned home from a long, but satisfying afternoon painting Kate & Micah’s new house in the North End of Burlington, VT. They’ll tell the whole story at some point, but let’s just say a few weeks ago the house smelled of smoke so badly that it was the only thing you could think about inside. After washing, stripping, refinishing, priming, painting or removing every surface in the house, it’s almost ready to be lived in!

Music played all day - a mix of 60's, 70's, and 80's, mostly.

Cleanup time!
