A darling wedding to kick of the warmer months! Cynthia & Lloyd were married at the beautiful Grand Isle Lake House on a perfect afternoon. The colors, details, laughter and love were a joy to photograph! Enjoy some of my favorites below along with their slideshow.
A beautiful family!
This panoramic of Lake Champlain is going to look awesome in their album!!
The toasts were heart warming and funny. Cynthia’s children, Mira & Nick, even performed a song! You can hear it in the slideshow.
Congratulations Cynthia & Lloyd! It was such a pleasure to work with you, your family and your friends.

Recently I was nominated by one of my Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep families to be the Volunteer of the Month. NILMDTS is an an infant bereavement photography program that has over 1600 volunteers worldwide that donate their time and skill to families experiencing the loss of a baby. There are 4 of us in the greater Burlington area alone. It is an honor beyond words for me to receive this just as it is an honor to be able to make photographs for these babies and their families.
Thank you so much Rachel & Dan for recognizing me in this way. I am so glad to have met your sweet Jack. He will always have a special place in my memories.
March 2015 Volunteer of the Month
This nomination was sent in by a family Kathleen Porter served in Vermont.
Here is the family’s story in their own words:
“We learned of NILMDTS through social media and thought it was a nice organization, but never expected to have need of its services. A couple months later we discovered we were expecting our second child, and by mid-pregnancy, we were told he would never live. I immediately thought of NILMDTS and found and contacted Kathleen – the area coordinator.
She had a 45 minute trip in and did not want to miss the potential of catching Jack alive. She appeared during the final stages of labor, and if I hadn’t been informed, I never would have known. She moved quietly and seamlessly among the medical staff, capturing intimate images of our final steps in the journey of carrying our son.
The respect and care she showed toward Jack and our family holds such meaning to us. The process left Jack’s body battered, bruised, and broken- Kathleen was able to offer us an edited photograph through email the night we left the hospital so we had something beautiful to balance our mental images of his tiny body. Unknown to us at the time of delivery, Kathleen actually did TWO NILMDTS sessions at the hospital that day. She drove in during early morning to provide photographs for another family and stayed through the afternoon to do a session with Jack. The poise and grace she demonstrated throughout our time with her speaks to her character. I vividly remember her kind smile and sweet demeanor as she interacted with us.
Recently, I tried to attain vital and legal records of our son, Jack. The state of Vermont does not issue any type of legal documentation for a still birth. The ONLY proof of my son’s existence are the photographs done by Kathleen and provided by Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep. These images and memories are priceless.
‘Thank you’ cannot begin to encompass the amount of gratitude my family has for your organization and the volunteers like Kathleen. Because of these photographs, we have a tangible memory of Jack we can share with his big sister and any future siblings. God bless each of you for all the work you do.”
Congratulations Kathleen! Please accept our sincere thanks for being such a wonderful volunteer. We appreciate you!

Warm and cozy is a great way to describe Chris & Nikki’s wedding day. Yes, it was a typical chilly Winter day in Vermont and there were a few goosebumps, but between the roaring fireplaces, the cozy barn, beautiful scarves & mittens, the intimate setting, and a beyond fabulous custom coat, the day was perfectly warm and cozy. The Red Clover Inn blew the socks off all the guests with their amazing 5-course meal and a trio of talented musicians entertained with beautiful music throughout the evening. It was a wonderful kick-off to the 2015 wedding season!
Congratulations Chris & Nikki! It has been a real joy to get to know you both over the past few months. Your playful natures, beautiful love, and thoughtful organization always put a smile on my face. Thank you for choosing me!
Enjoy a few of my favorite images from Chris & Nikki’s wedding day.
Chris helped Nikki get ready. It was really sweet and a definite change from the norm.
Per a special request I dusted off my medium format film camera to play with some film! Unlike digital it definitely took a little time to pause, meter light, compose in reverse, manual focus and then actually take the picture, but I am pleased with the results.Film is and always will be so delicious!
The barn at Red Clover Inn is really nice for a smaller wedding ceremony. They had a heater to keep is nice and toasty.
It was such fun watching the kitchen at Red Clover Inn whip out these amazing dishes! They do chef wine pairing dinners which I definitely need to check out!
The snow started falling just as dinner started. Luckily all of the guests were staying onsite or nearby because the roads became messier as the night went on. It did make for a beautiful portrait though! Winter romance at its finest.
Congratulations Chris & Nikki! You two are tops in my book.To enjoy more of Chris & Nikki’s wedding day, check out their slideshow below. Be sure to leave them some love in the comments section below. Couples love seeing who has checked out their wedding feature!

As we prepare to welcome in 2015, I want to take a moment to extend a special thank you all of the couples, families, professionals, and businesses I had the opportunity to work with in 2014. Without each of you, I would not have a purpose in the photography world.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to be witness to and capture some of your beautiful moments in 2014. It is an honor, a pleasure, and a joy.
Here’s to another beautiful year ahead!
2014 Year in Review
Adorable little ones!
Beautiful families and friends!
Strong, amazing women!
Awesome local businesses (and more cute littles!)!
So many beautiful smiles, amazing people and a few furry friends!
And of course some “on the job” captures from this past year. These always make me chuckle! I look so silly. Robert and I working hard!
Happy New Year from my family to yours.
Wishing you and your family a beautiful Christmas week! May there be joy, laughter, and abundant peace as you travel, stay home, visit family or have a quiet day in.
Much love, The Porters & North Photography
Thank you once again to our dear friend Kelly of Mountain Dog Photography for helping us pull off our crazy ideas!
Amy & Mike were married on this amazing fall day at Mountain View Farm in East Burke. It was unseasonably warm, but that just made for a perfect outdoor ceremony, amazing portraits, a fun cocktail hour in the amazing sunset and allowed the kiddos to run and play on the beautiful lawns. There were so many beautiful moments that I had a hard time narrowing things down for this post, but since this is the last wedding of 2014 to be featured, I figured I would make it a nice long one.Enjoy the story! xoxo Kathleen
A little de-linting help from Mike’s son.
The barn was decorated SO beautifully! I just loved all of the details and autumn decorations.
Mike’s daughter Evie had the idea for this next photo and everyone was happy to oblige her! Amy also loves the endless starry skies in Vermont so I made sure to include those just for her.

Andrea & Evan’s wedding took place at one of the prettiest places in Vermont. The Derby Pond Barn in Derby, Vermont is a beautiful oasis set right on Lake Derby. The barn itself is reclaimed from another Vermont barn and rebuilt onsite! The perfect setting for two amazing people to start their life together. The day started out very windy but turned into such a perfect Autumn day! Enjoy some of my favorites below and I’ll let the photos tell you the rest of the story.xoxo Kathleen
I felt like I was walking through a photo shoot set-up because the details were all so perfect and amazing!
Autumn color is by far my favorite.
So beautiful Andrea!
Andrea & Evan opted to do a First Look before their ceremony so that they could relieve wedding day jitters and do some family pictures and wedding party portraits!
