Michele Calderon Photography::Redesigned!

No, I haven’t been away!  I had a very busy fall which included many sessions and the complete redesign of my website.  Unfortunately, I lost my blog in the process of this changeover.  As technology sometimes eludes me, it took me several months to figure out how to get it back, but I am happy that it is recovered, and up and running again.

Now that I can get back into the swing of posting, I’ll start with a sampling of the babies, kids, and families I’ve photographed in the last few months.

And last but not least, I got to photograph my sister’s family and do their holiday card this year.  This is the result……she referred to this image as her “crazy family picture” rather than by its image number when she was telling me which one she wanted to use.  I knew exactly which one she was talking about:

Ben, Elijah, and Emma | Southern Adirondacks Children’s Photographer

I shot this session late in the summer and what a fun session it was.  I can honestly say these guys were some of the best behaved kids I have ever met, and we got to pack a LOT into our session!  From playing with blocks in the family room upon my arrival, to a pleasant stroll down the bike path to the beach (what a great location you guys live in), I ended up shooting until it was almost dark!  Ben was such a great big brother to his twin siblings and was so very patient with them – it was obvious the kids were the best of friends.  I meet some of the best people in my job, and truly enjoyed hanging out with these guys and having a pleasant chat with mom on our stroll back to their house.  It is hard to choose a sampling for the blog!

Dave the Black Lab, and His Family | Saratoga Family Photographer

I did a recent session with this family who wanted a few pictures at their house with their 19 year old triplets, and Dave (who was sporting an ivory bow….poor Dave).  Much of our session went like the first image – family getting into position, and Dave running up to check out what I was doing!  But the second image was my favorite from the session….

Megan and Mike {8.15.09}

Megan and Mike are two of the nicest people you could meet, and on 8/15/09 I had the privilege of shooting their wedding with the alongside the wonderful Kim Prochazka.  The wedding was held at gorgeous Saint Peter’s Church in Binghamton, NY, and the reception was at the Binghamton Club.  Megan had the most beautiful centerpieces on the tables, the band, Rooster House, kept everyone on the dance floor, and it was just an all around fabulous day.  Congratulations Megan and Mike, and best wishes for a long and happy life together!

Sweet Lucy – 3 months | Saratoga Baby Photographer

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing Lucy and her family at their home.  She was such an incredibly sweet baby that I seriously forgot to photograph her at times, I got so busy playing with her.  3 months is a difficult age to photograph – babies don’t really look at the camera, and don’t sleep as deeply as they do when they are newborns, but we still got some nice shots.  Her mom wanted one of her in her favorite place – her changing table in her super-cute turquoise room decorated entirely with black and white photographs of the family dog, Tony.  Here are a few shots.
