Rest assured that this gloomy, yucky grey weather will soon pass and we will be full fledge into Wedding Season and Outdoor family sessions.
During these rather cold and drab days, I do keep myself quite busy in the Studio with Babies, Maternity shoots and sweet little kiddos that don’t care for the cold much either. It’s an ideal time to get new Headshots for your business, product shots of things you may be looking to sell, or just some traditional studio portraits, and we have FUN !!
I also spend this time doing some more creative things as I prepare to enter the annual photography competition with Vt Professional Photographers, so I try to nurture my creativity, I will share sone of my images after the comp.
Keeping busy and creative is the best way to spend these days – ( Along with planning a getaway on a Disney Cruiseline very soon) which of course I will share some photos.
Keep smiling friends – and I will see you all soon
Best – Natascha
As I look outside at the brown grass coming through from underneath the grey snow – I just can’t help but anticipate and picture the lovely lovely Weddings that are coming up for 2017 and 2018 – and how much I am looking forward to the blue skies and green grass again, but I know it’s coming.
Here is a LOVELY Wedding captured in Barre, Vermont
Shannon and Eric had such beautiful wedding day – an incredible spring wedding – could not ask for better weather ~
My Assistant Allyson went off to photograph the guys being silly at their location,while I caught up with the girls being silly at their location – I think both places were just having a great time and looking forward to meeting up. Shannon and girls were just lovely in their pastel pinks. The ladies got ready at a family home – and the Groomsmen got ready in a another family home-
Off we went to the Ceremony site – The Round Church in Richmond – It’s just one of my favorite places – it’s so Vermont !! ( I’ll never forget the first Wedding I shot there years ago and I was wearing clickity heels – not such a good idea inside that church – I’ve since learned to wear rubber soles. – just a silly side-note)
Shannon had put so many special things into her Wedding – Moments, Thoughts, people
Remberances – And the love that Shannon and Eric were surrounded by was just very very special – so many people from out of town – and many many friends from near by.
After the Ceremony – off we went to Reception – Lots of kisses, Snuggles and hugs in between – Non other than The Old Lantern – Lisa and Roland always do such an amazing job with their Weddings at the Old Lantern – I really love when I hear that I’ll be working there. –
Super sounds Entertainment kept the dance floor full for the evening and made sure to put those special songs into the evening
The Happy couple were even sang to by a young family member with a beautiful song –
The day will never be forgotten -It will be forever special – it will always be the day of Mr. and Mrs. Eric LaPierre.
I am on my second year of Sponsoring the Miss Vermont High School Junior high, High School and Collegiate young ladies – and it has been such an honor – here is Miss Junior high – just completely beautiful. She will be going off to her National pageant this year –
Reese Clayton – Junior High – Beautiful young lady and we all wish her lots of luck in her future –
These two are just so special to me !! I feel completely honored to have been part of their Wedding day – and so many other important parts of their lives.
March 19, 2016 was a pretty chilly day – But the sun was out and the sky was blue, crystal clear and it was a perfect Winter day for a Wedding. We hoped for a little snow, but as luck would have it for us, Winter 2016 was one of the mildest we’ve had in years here in Vermont, Who can imagine being out in a beautiful Wedding gown on March 19th in VT and not being completely frozen ?
Kelsey and Justin are the picture perfect young couple and everything about their Wedding was just perfect. The Love that these two have for one another just radiates through everyone that comes within 2 feet of them. They were surrounded on their day by so much love and support from an amazing group of friends and family.
The Ceremony and Reception were held at The Strong House, in Vergennes, VT ((Did you know that Vergennes, VT is the smallest City in the U.S? ) I didn’t either. Mary and Hugh ( The Innkeepers ) and their staff were just top notch ! So friendly and helpful and just really happy and up-beat, they made this day so special, Mary even came and joined the bride and groom on the dance floor for a couple of beats.
Dynamic Entertainment provided some perfect music for the day – Ceremony and Reception – Kept everyone dancing and having a great time – www.dynentvt.com
At dusk – Kelsey and Justin and guests sent off some beautiful messages on red balloons to Kelsey and Justin’s little Angel Scarlett ~ This was one of the most moving and touching moments I have been part of in a long time.
Kelsey has started a little Etsy Shop since – so please check out her site and all her special things she makes and the reason for making them. http://www.etsy.com/shop/AScarlettRainbow
Wow, it’s just amazing to think that the first 20 years to this Century are almost past – 2017 – crazy – I have been in my Photo business since 2005 which is just amazing to me as well. My first goal is to start keeping up on this Blog a bit more – within the next few weeks I’ll be posting my 2016 Wedding couples – as well as many of my families and little Newbies – This time of year is a bit quieter for me which gives a chance to catch up on some Admin things – but is certainly does not keep me away from the photographs. –
I hope everyone settles into this new year nicely and gets ready for a Fantastic year to come –
A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to attend a Fashion show hosted by this years Miss Vt Teen High School Pageants – it was such a fun event – Incredible Gowns were on display by Exquisite Bridal & Formal Wear of St. Johnsbury, VT –
These beautiful young ladies will be heading down to St. Antonio this Summer to compete in the National Pageants – They are just lovely and I wish them all luck and enjoyment throughout this year.
