A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to spend an afternoon with Arthur and his family, who were visiting Burlington for a family vacation. They were loving the "Burlington vibe," which is famously dog-friendly (they even brought their pooch for our session!) and laid-back. Perfect for kids, and perfect for the parents who might need some serious brewery/vineyard time while enjoying a vacation.
Art set up the family session because he wanted to remember their time spent here in VT. We met at Oakledge Park, which is a personal favorite spot for me for family sessions because there is a playground and lots of space to roam (and play tag, of course).
Art and his family were a joy to work with. They were sweet, hilarious, and open to whatever I had in mind for them. It was honestly very sweet to see a couple like them. They loved running around and posing with their kids-- but they also had that chemistry that really solid couples have. They had a spark. Which you could tell made their parenting feel genuine, and just that much more nurturing.
Here are a few from our session. And let me just say, if you're thinking, "wow, those kids should be models!" Well GUESS WHAT? They already are. They model for L.L. Bean! So, yes, I am the luckiest photographer ever.
Art & co., I hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay here in Vermont! Please keep in touch and let me know if you're in the area again. :)
