It is always such a great honor when people from my “younger years” contact me to document important events for them. I attended high school and played on the soccer team with Allyson’s sister, Sara. When Allyson & Dave contacted me about photographing their wedding, I was just thrilled! It’s awesome to be there for the next step in their story.:)

Once again storms and rain threatened all day and even though the ceremony was moved indoors in anticipation of a big storm, the {quick} rain shower held off until the reception was well underway. Botched plans aside, the one thing that I do love about stormy days are the AMAZING sunsets we can get! Perfect for delicious sunset portraits.

Enjoy some of my favorites from Allyson & Dave’s beautiful wedding at The Old Lantern. I just love all the lemony details!! Their slideshow is at the end if you prefer something spiffier.  Be well, Kathleen


Allyson’s white peony bouquet was just amazing! So delicate and elegant. A perfect backdrop too!


Congratulations Allyson & Dave!! 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.

nilmdts_logo1 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! 

If any photographer or retouch artist is interested in volunteering for this amazing program, you can reach more and sign up here.

    suz - How incredibly sad it must be to witness this behind the lens. I can only imagine how calming you are to families in such a tragic time. What a special testimony.ReplyCancel

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!
