Oh my goodness! I had so much fun photographing families in Seward, Alaska while we were there this summer! It was a dream to go to my hometown and photograph some of the kids of some of my favorite people! I graduated with several of the Mom’s and Dad’s of these gorgeous kids. We had so much fun! This grandchildren session couldn’t have been more perfect! You never know what weather you are going to get in Seward and boy did we luck out. Seward is gorgeous even on a rainy day but on a sunny day it is literatly the most beautiful place on earth! Conants, what a joy it… Keep Reading
I’ll try not to get too personal here… My big brother. Life has taken us to the far sides of the country. We try to keep in touch and thank goodness for social media! Life is busy. Life is crazy. Oh how I wish life got me to Oregon more often! When I found out that my brother was dating this amazing woman all I wanted to know was how can I meet her and what can I do to help?! They eloped to Hawaii and had the most gorgeous, personal wedding! I am so thrilled for them but as a traveling wedding and family photographer I ached to photograph this… Keep Reading
Samantha and I started texting back and forth in January. We chatted and met and planned her family’s session. She knew the perfect location and her sense of style is incredible. Of course the difficult thing with dreaming and planning out so far is you never know how kids will change. Will they still be napping, or will they at least nap that day? This family is AAAAmazing! Mom and Dad kept their cool during their family session at Wiawaka house in Lake George, NY no matter what the kids threw at them. Their little girl is gorgeous but looking at her Mamma, I wasn’t surprised! Her big brother gave us… Keep Reading
Say hello to the winner of the Mother’s Day Giveaway! When I told Christine she had won and that she needed to pick who her guest would be she immediately thought of her husband! I absolutely LOVED this idea! That to me says that she married her best friend and made a pretty amazing choice! Soon they are celebrating their 10 year wedding anniversary so we turned the winnings into an anniversary celebration! Their was a little rain right during our photoshoot but it didn’t even phase these two. They were so effortless together and had us laughing through the whole session. And can we talk about those smiles and eyes?!… Keep Reading
Casey!! This girl is amazing! I met her when I moved to New York but our families have been friends for generations. I photographed her senior pictures and it feels like just yesterday. But now she’s been off to college and gone and got herself even more grown up!
We did a mini Mommy and Me session with our favorite accessories. We spent a rainy day in Saratoga Springs, NY just playing, taking “pictures” with our binoculars, and wearing all the necessary adornments! There might have been a few burps and toots and hilarious laughter then ensued as well. But only maybe. I was put to the test juggling, camera, lighting, and a little blue bouncy ball with rough edges flying at me! (only the ball was flying at me, not the camera or lighting). My smile hurt when we were done! I met Virginia scrolling through Instagram. I was immediately drawn to her feed…clean and beautiful! I had… Keep Reading

This is the first big play and first musical we have been a part of as a family. How lucky we were to work with such amazing people! It has been incredible to watch them work and grow and build this show in a relatively short period of time. The amount of work put into it and into the children is incredible and inspiring! We were honored to help the kids and a few of the adults with some new headshots. Check out Broadway Upstate’s website here. I can’t wait to see this cast in action at the Wood Theater here in Glens Falls, NY. You can check out show… Keep Reading
This boy holds a special place in my heart because his Mamma is so special to us. I was a new Mom, sending my oldest baby away to school for the first time. Everything was new for me. New school. New Teachers. New do’s and don’ts. I wasn’t too worried about my son with his outgoing personality but I was worried about me! A few particular teachers made all the difference. They loved him, taught him, and nurtured him. This Mamma is one of those who just helped me know that he was in good hands and put my mind to rest and eased my heart. It’s been a delight… Keep Reading
