As 2022 winds down, I’m looking back with gratitude. I am a firm believer in the importance of gratitude and I’m not a fan of toxic positivity.
November is upon us! The days are getting shorter. Stick season is officially here, but the holidays are still a few weeks off. This time of year can feel a bit drab. However, for family photos it can actually be a lot of fun.
I photographed Vermont Youth Cycling at Richmond on October 15, 2022. Yet again, it was a glorious fall day — a bit chilly in the morning and warming up just enough by mid-day.
People often ask me: What is the best time of year for family photos? Is it fall foliage season? Or maybe early November when the light is actually really beautiful and winter is just barely arriving? Many people love to capture the beauty of family life during Vermont’s brief summers. Maybe summer is the best time for family photos? Still others embrace winter and opt for photos then. Are the winter holidays the best time for family photos?
So, when do I think is the best time for family photos? My quick answer is… last weekend!

You’ve thought about getting professional family photos taken, but something is holding you back. I get it. Many of my clients felt that way before they booked. One of these four myths might be holding you back.
I recently submitted my second round of Vermont Minimum Course of Study (MCOS) forms for home school. Along the way I’ve learned some ways to streamline the process and to make my life less stressful.
