3.5.17 Stockholm, you are lovely

Recently, on a trip to Europe, I got to swoop in for a weekend to Stockholm and visit one of my best friends in the world! Emily and I have known each other since modified soccer tryouts. One of us was cut… Thankfully the emotional wounds of middle school eventually heal, and the rejection made…

1.15.17 Nicaragua: Adventure and Amor

17As we drove through the dystopian industrial wasteland of New York/New Jersey to Newark Airport,  the sun had not yet risen.  At 5:30 am there was already traffic, and the ambient light mixed with the fog/steam/smog gave everything an oppressive, reddish glow.  It was pretty grim. However, we were about to travel to another world! After…

12/29/16 Mike and Denise – Philly Love

Over the holidays, during a morning of extreme rain, wind and waves, I photographed Denise and Mike’s engagement photos in Skaneateles, NY. I know Denise from high school, but hadn’t seen her in years, so it was really great to reconnect, and see what she has been up to and how she has been doing. Official…

12.5 Running for the Wine

To exercise, or to drink wine/party with friends? Why not both, they asked. I am a big advocate in blending workouts into your daily activities, whether its running to pick up groceries, or riding your bike to a concert, it makes it easier to keep active when working out isn’t an isolated activity that automatically…

11.27 A Night at the Park

Colin and Kim were put in contact with me through a mutual friend.  They have an awesome New Orleans story, they are really cool, their wedding plans are amazing, and they are the first wedding I booked in NOLA! For the those reasons and more, I am so happy to be their photographer. They met…

10.20 Sammy + Kyle’s Engagement Session

I have known Sammy and Kyle for a little over a year. I met them through my fiancé, who used to be a tour guide at the Ben and Jerry’s Factory with Kyle (typical Vermont). As soon as I was introduced to Sammy, I was smitten…its hard making girlfriends as an adult, and she is…

10.14 Baby Sjoblom’s Shower

This weekend I attended my friend Jolie’s baby shower. Our other friend, Emily, hosted it at her family’s home in the middle of no where Vermont.  We are all so happy for Matt and Jolie, and the shower was really fun. I remember when I first found out they were pregnant, I was in utter…

Durga Puja 2016 10.1

A few weeks after photographing Krishna Janmashtami, the Bhutanese community was celebrating Durga Puja, the annual Hindu festival that celebrates worship of the Hindu mother goddess, Durga. It was held in the basement of a community center. There were lots of food and blessings. Even in an old, dim basement, you could fill the light…

9.15 Krishna Janmashtami – Lord Krishna’s Birthday

Through volunteering with the AALV, I have had the opportunity to photograph community events and festivals being celebrated by Burlington’s refugee and immigrant populations. Every time I attend an event, I am uplifted and humbled. It is powerful to watch a group of people coming together and celebrating their cultural traditions so far away from…

9.3 Healthy and Safety Fair for New Americans

This fall, while my fiance Marty began law school at Tulane in New Orleans, I stayed in Vermont for a few more months, continuing to work and wrapping stuff up for our move. Even though I was busy and slightly stressed, I actually did have more free time than normal just being a temporary single…
