The tradition of a photographer at Canoe Island Lodge goes back many years. I remember Bob Edwards taking pictures of my family in the 80’s. There is a pile about two feet thick of CIL photos in my house, separated by folders and marked by year.
Liz is our current house photographer. She has been with us for about 15 years, and is part of the Canoe Island family. Tom and Carla ran into Liz while riding a ski gondola out west. Liz was a photographer from Vermont, who had been working around Lake George and was open to new opportunities. Tom and Carla just happened to be searching for a new Lodge photographer. That twelve minute gondola ride is all it took. Liz comes up midweek to shoot candid photos, and takes family portraits on Thursday and Friday nights (weather permitting out on the Island for Thursday night BBQ). She displays the photos on Saturday morning for purchase on the front porch. Some guests even plan ahead and have Liz take their holiday card photos. We did last year, and the results speak for themselves, as you can see…..
