August Favorites

August, the Sunday of Summer. A time in our community when many things came to a close: last game of the horseshoe league, the final days of summer for students, and a farewell to water frolic. It was also the culmination of a story I had been working on for several months, chronicling the journey of high schooler Joia and her young mustang horse, Gypsy, from their first encounter to competition day at the Youth Mustang Makeover in Massachusetts. Another favorite of the month was photographing Hazel, who celebrated her 108th birthday by teaching a fitness class.

July Favorites

This July was packed with a perfect variety of summer activities- everyone was outside and taking advantage of the few hot, sunny days that grace the Upper Valley each year. My favorite thing this month was having the opportunity to visit a handful of Vermont's pristine swimming holes and write about the unique characteristics of each one.

June Favorites

If one word comes to mind when thinking back to June, it would be baseball. I photographed nearly a dozen baseball games in the month of June, from Little League to high school championships and our new college team, the Upper Valley Nighthawks. Between baseball, I found plenty of excitement at a golf match, where I watched a giant tree fall in front of me and witnessed all kinds of mortarboard creativity at several graduations.

May Favorites

Springtime exploded in May, a time of flowering trees and college graduations. Baseball was in full-swing, and farms planted summer crops in earnest. As I will be all summer, I was outside in the glorious sunshine for most of my assignments this month, making up for all the cold wi
nter ones.

April Favorites

April: the gateway to spring. It's one of the months I favor best as a photographer, as people leave their houses and start exploring the world around them again. It's not sweltering hot or freezing cold, and bugs haven't yet announced their presence, so it's a comfortable, enjoyable time to explore the swiftly greening world around the Upper Valley.
