I can’t remember the exact date, but Carissa’s Mom had contacted me a long time ago. She wanted Carissa’s Senior Portraits to be photographed by Around The Bend. I was thankful she was thinking so far ahead. I’m sure I was in the middle of closing out my 2013 year ๐Ÿ˜‰ I told her to be on the look out for the 2015 Senior year portrait start and perhaps Carissa would even consider applying to be a rep for my studio. She did just that! I was thrilled to have a rep from the Williamstown, VT area. I have photographed over 15 High Schools around VT & NH and she wasn’t put off by the distance between us. If you know something is worth it, you put extra effort to make it happen. Of course, in our areas, it seems we have to travel for just about everything anyway..right?! Anywho, Carissa is a dream to photograph and a delight to be around. I truly enjoyed our rep session in Montpelier. The afternoon, although a bit breezy, was gorgeous! Thank you Carissa! I can’t wait to see you again! <3 If you are a senior not in my immediate area, please don't be discouraged, If our schedule allows, we will work with you on locations that work for us both!blog post

Paige comes from Lyndon Institute. The first thing I noticed was her intense eyes. As someone who loves eyes through my lens, it was hard not to notice. Then she smiles and that takes over everything else. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Pretty laid back and easy going, her rep session went pretty quickly. She said her Mom liked the outfits because they were perfectly Paige. <3 This athletic kiddo has a pretty good head on her shoulders and I am sure what ever she sets her mind to, she will accomplish. (oh and she has great hair..I have a bit of hair envy lol) So very happy to have her represent my studio. Thanks Paige! <3hm-editorial-yearbook-ad-03

I just wrapped up a month of Photographing my beautiful Senior Reps! I thought it would be fun to do a spotlight on each girl. We see their beautiful faces in photographs, but they are so much more then their photogenic-selves!

Amanda was one of my first applicants. She sent me back her application within what seemed liked minutes. lol. She did the same today with me asking for tidbits on their lives. I am in love with her enthusiasm! Amanda is an Oxbow HS Junior. She has a lot going on! psst.. She drives a RACE CAR!!!! Eeee.. how cool is that??!! I can tell she comes from a supportive family and I think the community takes pride in this girl as well. I am so thankful to have her apart of my studio and life. I look forward to photographing Amanda again! Thanks, Amanda! <3Amanda Oxbow HS Senior

I had the honor of photographing twins…the most sweetest brother and sister. Their parents were gifted this session and they chose to come to us before the Holidays. We did add a touch of Holiday with this session, but mostly wanted to do simple elegance. Thank you so much for choosing Around The Bend Photography for your Children’s Portraits!

Our studio really takes great pride in offering only the best when it comes to photographing your portraits. We invest thousands each year in hand painted custom backdrops. We are excited for our Annual Children’s Event coming up in March. This year is sure to be amazing!!! Look out for details here and on our FaceBook page.

This beautiful girl came all the way from Morrisville, VT area to have her Senior Portraits taken by our studio. We discussed location and style she was looking for and I we truly got it perfect. She put a lot of thought into her wardrobe and hair and makeup was done by Arielle at the Clip Joint in Hardwick, VT. The weather was amazing on this glorious fall day.
