Hello

I am Buffy, a Vermont family photographer. Nothing delights me more than being let in and fully trusted. This is the honor I aim to earn.

Story

I began my career in early childhood education, before embarking down the excitingly scenic route of wedding photography. I was fortunate enough to photograph over 100 weddings across the United States, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Europe, and to see my work published widely online and in print, in The Knot, Once Wed, Wedding Sparrow, Style Me Pretty, Cottage Hill Magazine, Southern Weddings, and others.

In 2014, I moved from Georgia to Vermont in support of my husband’s career, which afforded me the opportunity to take a step back and decide where my path should turn next. Through a personal wellness transformation, I discovered the culmination of my favorite parts of work and life in the healthcare arena and decided to pursue medical education.

However, once a portrait artist, always a portrait artist. I couldn’t stop photographing people, even if I wanted to.

Amidst medical school preparations, my roots in the arts and service have deepened, through the study of darkroom photography techniques and new endeavors in patient care. I strongly believe in the power of art, and it is my honor to create personal artwork for my clients, my family and friends, and the patients whom I serve through an integrative arts in medicine volunteer program at the University of Vermont Medical Center.

As your family photographer, my mission is to create a collection of photographs that will become heirlooms. This is your family history and it’s important. Trust me.

Process

Family portrait sessions are available on location in Burlington, Vermont, and the surrounding areas, as well as in the Atlanta, Georgia, area a few times per year. Sessions are relaxed, fun, and customized to your style and desires. My only requirement is that you be yourself and allow your children to do the same. 

Your investment includes proof prints and a link to download your images for personal use. Investment options range from $750, depending on number of people and amount of variety needed, with most family portrait clients spending $950 for a comprehensive portrait experience. All portrait plans include high resolution images with printing rights.
