I was lucky enough to come back to see Sage and her family just before Sage's FIRST birthday!!! After knowing her mom for the past 8 years we've been able to watch our kids develop right in front of us! I can't believe Sage is already turning one, and so love taking photos of her and her family!!! Happy Birthday sweet Sage!!!!
Sage's mom trialed the cake she was planning to make for the big birthday party... a gluten-free apple cake.... Sage seemed to enjoy it a little bit... ;)
Well I may be partial but I have to say these are some of the cutest kids (and parents!) I know! It may be because the kids are my awesome niece and nephew. We had a BLAST doing some lifestyle photos in Mason's room while they played with some new blocks, read some stories and really just acted silly (which is what they are best at!). I love spending time with and photographing this family - they have been my subjects from the beginning of this photography endeavor for me! Hope you enjoy looking at the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!!
My sister had just gotten these AWESOME magnetic blocks... we spent quite a while building things and playing with them! Leo was here for photos too - I think it took all of his might not to jump up on the bed and play with these blocks.... well lets be honest.. he did jump up a few times!!! ;)
Their cats are wacky to say the least.... but also quite photogenic!!!
Mason just started piano lessons this summer.... which is incredibly cool in my opinion! and he actually enjoys playing so far so I had to capture a moment of him!
Little Miss Maggie is destined to be a forever part of our family as her mom is one of my oldest and best friends. I had such fun doing her newborn photos, and of course snuck in a few snuggles!! She was wide awake and loved looking at herself in the mirror on her dresser for the beginning part of our session. Then she got some snuggles with mom and dad and finished up with her parents requiring a photo of her laying on a 49ers and Jets t shirt.... who will she choose to be her team?! I'm so looking forward to watching this little miss grow up and introduce my little miss to her!!!
Leave some love for Matt, Katie and Baby Mags below!!!
Miss Claire has a special little place in my heart! Not only is she the daughter of one of my best friends but she is also sister to big bro Calvin (who happens to be a favorite person of Leo's) and she will soon be very best friends with the future baby girl Kirkham!! She is also the first girl born on her dad's side in 52 years!!!! Claire is perfection from her cute little toes to perfect face and dark hair! I am so thrilled and honored to have been able to photograph her for my friends and hope you enjoy some of my favorites from their session!!!
Calvin was so cute and funny during the family shots... so much personality in this little man!!!!
sibling love just makes my heart melt!!!!
Back in May I had the privilege of a photo shoot with my friend Bridget and her family. Bridget was my first preceptor when I started working as a nurse!! I had a great time capturing Harper and Sage being their adorable selves while at Tawasentha Park in Guilderland. I've watched Harper grow up into a beautiful little girl and am so excited to see how similar and different her sister Sage is! Can't wait to plan another shoot with these girls and continue to watch them as they grow!!!!
Baby Nate was a dream to photograph! We tried a few shots with his big sister Brynn and cousin Allie and when they had enough we moved on to making Nate comfy and cozy. He was just about three weeks old when I had the pleasure of meeting him and he was perfect! Congratulations to Matt, Sarah and Brynn!!
