Leo :: Albany Newborn Photography

Meet Leo.  He has the greatest newborn head of hair ever, and slept and slept and slept.  Except for a few minutes when he just contemplated life in general.  He slept through over an hour of photographing.  He slept through several outfit changes. He even slept through the fire alarms being tested in the building (that was a surprise…..).  His parents are recent transplants from Queens and wanted to incorporate the map of NYC that they brought along, which was a nice challenge, and were just a lot of fun to work with.

Happiest. Baby. Ever. :: Saratoga NY Custom Photographer

Meet Anika.  Her family has a baby plan with me, which means they have 3 sessions within the first year for the price of two, plus get some other cool goodies.  This is Anika’s 6 month session, and I don’t think I’ve ever worked with a happier baby.  Seriously, smile bursting in every image.  Her mom wanted to incorporate some family heirlooms…I think because of this, my favorite image is the one outside with her on the chair handed down from her paternal grandfather, on which is her baby quilt made by her maternal grandmother, and wearing a dress made by her mom.  We also grabbed a few shots (while the chair was still in the house) of Anika in her Christening gown, which was made by her mom out of her grandmother’s wedding gown.  This little girl is completely enveloped in love….no wonder she is so happy.  Oh, and she has the sweetest older brother as well.

Winter Portraits

Now that we’re really in the middle of winter, no one is really thinking of having portraits shot, especially not outside.  I’m here to encourage you to reconsider.  Winter portraits are especially striking.  Whether or not there is snow on the ground, the subdued colors outside means that your family, the subject of the photograph, really stands out.  I have several customers booking winter portraits this year, and I will try to post several examples.  Here’s just one recent winter session to get you motivated……
