Mari, Michael, & Rosi's Family Session in Congress Park | Saratoga Springs Family Photographer Blog

This is my favorite time of year for family sessions. The air cools; the leaves begin to turn shades of gold, red, and orange; the happy chaos of holiday buzz begins.

On a crisp morning, I met up with Mari & Michael and their sweet daughter, Rosi for their family session in Congress park. Their adorable pup, Jack, came along for the fun too.

We also ventured over to Saratoga State Park to capture some more Fall magic. Rosi perfectly capped-off our session with a nap. :)

I had so much fun photographing their session! Here’s a quick look with a candid ending.

Pete, Lisa, & Olivia's Lake George Family Session | Lake George Family Photographer

I love photographing children. They’re vibrant, they have amazing takes on just about everything, and they know how to have some serious fun. What I didn’t expect at this family session was making a fast friend.

I met up with Pete, Lisa and their beautiful daughter Olivia on a gorgeous morning in Lake George. We had the beach all to ourselves with the exception of some ducks. I can neither confirm nor deny that I may or may not have encouraged the feeding of said ducks, and in the process, Olivia got the idea that I was awesome! (or just cool, but still)

I had an awesome time capturing some fun moments for this family and I was sad to leave my new buddy, who by the end of our shoot was on her way to becoming the best assent ever. Here’s a tiny peek at their family session.

Welcome Baby Ava: Saratoga Springs Newborn Photographer

A couple of weeks ago, Nicki and Dan became parents for the first time. I had the honor of meeting and photographing baby Ava at one week old and oh my goodness, MELT!! This tiny little babe was so alert, so strong, and blessed us with some funny moments. She is a force of nature already! Here’s a tiny peek at her casual in-home newborn session.

Congratulations guys!

Suzanne & Matt's Yaddo Maternity Session, Saratoga Springs

It was such a pleasure to meet up with Suzanne and Matt on Friday. We had the perfect early summer evening (despite the mosquitos!) and the grounds of Yaddo were virtually all to ourselves.

We shared lots of laughs (especially after Matt did finger guns and belly pointing) and I had so much fun capturing this special time for them. Baby is due in only a couple of weeks!! So exciting! Here’s a peek at their session.

Thomas Is 6 Months Old! Saratoga Springs Family Photographer

This is Thomas...

You might remember him from Megan & TJ's maternity post HERE. Boy, how time flies, right?! I can hardly believe this cute little peanut is sitting up and hamming it up for the camera already. I was so honored to spend a Fall morning photographing Thomas, Megan & TJ. Such a beautiful, fun family! Here are some more shots from our Saratoga session.

Ana & Ryan: Expecting: Saratoga Springs Family Photographer

It was so much fun to see these two again! I photographed Ana & Ryan's Saratoga wedding a couple of years back and I was super excited for them when I heard they were expecting a little baby girl this autumn. We got together at Yaddo Gardens for a maternity mini-session. Ana is rockin' this mama thing already! Here's a tiny peek at our shoot.

Hassa & Usha's 40th at Pasta Pane: Saratoga Springs Family Photographer

I love photographing weddings! I devote a lot of time witnessing and documenting couples take their vows and embark on a new journey together. It is such an honor to be chosen to photograph one of life's greatest moments.

Even more amazing is the privilege of capturing a couple's milestone anniversary. Last week, I got to do just that! Hassa & Usha celebrated their 40th Anniversary surrounded by their friends and loved ones. The room was filled with hugs, smiles, love & laughter. I wish this sweet, happy couple many more wonderful years together. Here's a peek at their anniversary gathering.

Congratulations!

Little Teagan

I frequently photograph families and little ones at key moments in their lives. I don't often get to blog sneak peeks when sessions take place during 'wedding season', but I thought I'd share a recent shoot. Meet Teagan: adorable, rosy-cheeked redhead who just celebrated her 1st birthday. I've never met a wee one so observant and calm; she watched my every move. I had fun capturing her interactions with her family members at a local park. She might have had fun too ;) Check out some snapshots from our session. Happy Birthday, Teagan!

Megan & TJ, Expecting: Saratoga Springs Family Photographer

I was so honored to capture a few moments in the last month of pregnancy for this expecting couple. Megan and TJ showed me all the spaces that they have lovingly curated for their bundle on the way. They are brimming with excitement and I'm so excited to share a sneak peek of their session. Check out this radiant mama below.

Life With A Newborn & Toddler + Family Mini Sessions

It has been six blissful and exhausting weeks since Olivia was born. I had forgotten how challenging life with a newborn can be; with a toddler, it becomes a gauntlet. So far, I'm keeping up and have the crazy under-eye circles to prove it! If you follow me on Instagram you have seen some snapshots here and there (courtesy of my iPhone- GUILTY!). 

It is a cliché and a truth that this time in life flies by, so it is so important to document it. I wanted to share a few family photos- the sweet, the serene, and the screaming, preserved forever as heirlooms... and blackmail!
