I'm a photographer momma who loves all things wedding and baby related. My husband was born and raised in Barre, and we relocated here after six years in the Boston area. Raising our three children (and dog!) in a rural area close to our families is very important to us, and we love living in Vermont! I have my own photography business, Ever After Photography , and I couldn't ask for a better career. I love pizza, Downton Abbey, and reading British chick lit. Give me coffee and chocolate and I'll be your best friend forever.

Why We “Elf”
