Where to begin. It’s hard not to start with how I met and fell in love with Crystal but I think the story here is about how she met and fell in love with Jon! Crystal is one of the most reliable, strong, and kind women I know. She met Jon while out one evening with friends. When I finally got the scoop on this “new guy” she just kept saying how kind and supportive he was! Boom! That was it. She needed someone who would stand beside her. Not in her shadow, but not afraid of it either. In walks Jon. An engineer who takes care of the people… Keep Reading
We’re doing a couple sessions at Global Fitness in Glens Falls, NY to spotlight Jon Mabb’s clients from all around the Lake George Region and the hard work they have put in. These two ladies were up first. I was so impressed by them. We had so much fun and they worked so hard just for a photo shoot…not even a real workout. I can see why they love doing this! I hope this sneak peaks give you an idea of the strength, power, determination, and kindness of these two women.
I met Michelle many years ago at the Bolton Landing Girlfriend’s Getaway. She was so easy to talk with and had such vibrancy that I was immediately drawn to her. Michelle has great knowledge and experience with photography herself as a blogger both about the gorgeous Adirondack region and her other love, dogs. She loves journalism and has worked in the industry in many different roles. We have kept it touch and have always talked about getting together to photograph her two fur babies. I was so excited when Michelle contacted me and told me she needed a simple headshot session! We had so much fun! Thank you to Tina from Tina’s… Keep Reading
I met Chelsea through working with Jon Mabb from Primal Movements.

You will be hearing more about Jon and what he does in the coming weeks so stayed tuned! Chelsea wanted to do a custom photography session that really showed her love for Lake George, the Adirondacks, and the area in Upstate New York that we lived in. She has been working with Jon and training for a competition. She wanted to showcase her love of hiking and the outdoors… Keep Reading
Feature Friday is fast becoming one of my favorite things that I get to do. It gives me a chance to connect with other amazing local business women (and men). It gives me a chance to get to know them and their passions and to give back. Here’s the scoop on how I fell in love with Couture Spa-tique in Lake George, NY! As many of you know we have been really working on our business and trying to learn, grow, and THRIVE! One of the ways we’ve done that is through a program called Thrive from Leah Remillet’. If you’re a photographer and you want to know how it’s changing our lives… Keep Reading
“This is what I like about photographs. They’re proof that once, even if just for a heartbeat, everything was perfect.” ~Jodi Picoult We can’t stress how important it is to get your artwork hung on your walls. In this generation we take and take and take photos but we don’t print them. Digital media fails. You don’t walk by your desk and see those beautiful memories sitting on that USB and think, wasn’t that fun? No! You walk by your wall, your mantle and you see the artwork and remember. It makes us smile! It makes us feel and remember. Where was the last place you went on vacation? Was it a… Keep Reading
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of us at Brayton Photography! We had a great year here in Lake George, NY and the greater Southern Adirondack region! We captured Lake George weddings and families and helped Adirondack artists get there work seen! We worked for a cause to help the SPCA take care of pets that need some extra love and helped the Adirondack Alzheimer’s Association walk for a cure! What a joy it was to be part of the lives of our friends, family, neighbors, and the Capital Region communities! Best Wishes to all!

Oh my…we had way too much fun that morning! Piper’s parents where a Brayton Photography Bride and Groom several years ago now. What a joy to be a part of things as Piper grows! How big is Piper?!! That, and showing us her shoes never failed to make her happy! I haven’t seen this girl since her newborn session just about and it was so amazing to see how much she has grown and how much personality she has! Then there was that moment when she just sat in her cake. I almost missed the shot because I was busting up laughing so hard…but don’t worry I got it! Enjoy… Keep Reading
Photographing other photographers is one of the best things. They get it and it can be so fun. Even better when she is a dear friend. This year we even went shopping together to celebrate some things in her life and document the incredible woman that she is, how far she’s come, and where she’s going! We were able to capture some images at a place that means the world to them and that will forever hold some of the dearest memories. Hope you love them Erin!
