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.

Matthew – age 4 | Delmar Child Photographer

I recently spent a couple of hours photographing Matthew.  Matthew especially loves his stuffed dog, “Dog-Dog”, who ended up in quite a few of our images.  ( I later realized there are actually 2 dog-dogs – it’s always good to have a backup, as every parent knows!)  But he also loves his cars and trucks, and we spent a good deal of time playing with those as well.  Here are a couple of images!

Ethan – Age 2 | Albany Children’s Photographer

Recently I had the pleasure of photographing Ethan at his home.  His favorite things include his tricycle and his toy trucks, and we spent a lot of time playing with those.  He also loves his 2 dogs, who were a bit camera-shy.  At the end of the session, Ethan decided to hop in his grandparents’ truck for a little pretend.  It’ll be interesting to see what his first real vehicle turns out to be!

Congress Park Session With Bridget | Saratoga NY Children’s Photographer

I’ve been having a lot of sessions in downtown Saratoga’s Congress Park lately, and I recently had the privilege of photographing  Bridget and her delightful family there.  Bridget is just entering toddlerhood and is really enjoying the simple life:  walking around (she hasn’t gotten too quick yet, easier for me!), watching the ducks, and picking the little flowers in the grass.  There are so many fabulous areas in the park, we really couldn’t go wrong!  She especially loved splashing in the many fountains.  Here are a few of what we got.

Devon – Emma Willard Class of 2009

I spent an enjoyable couple of hours last week with Devon, on the campus of the beautiful Emma Willard School in Troy, NY.   Devon is involved in so many activities in school that she did not have time for her senior pictures until the day after her graduation!  She showed me around all the beautiful buildings and we had a fabulous time capturing her senior pictures.  We went to study halls (I think I would fall asleep in those red chairs instead of getting any studying in…), the theater where Devon sings, and, I got to step into the forbidden Senior Triangle.

Here are just a few images.  I don’t think Devon could take a bad picture even if she tried.  Plus she was a sweetheart.  Best wishes next year at the University of Maryland!

I love this snap, taken while I was getting lighting adjusted for this dark corner:  She looks impatient, but she wasn’t at all.  Just fashionable:
