By extremely popular vote, I am happy to share with you sweetest family I photographed near Saratoga Springs, NY. Baby David made his debut this past June and they wanted to capture their new life as a family of four. With an older sister who adored him just as much as she adored jumping on the bed, we got some great moments that truly capture the little’s personalities as much as their cuteness. Oh, and baby David got some serious Z’s in! If you ever want to get your newborn to sleep, hire a photographer :) Congrats to the Alexander family on their new addition.
A real life rainbow, Henry, was turning 1 and it was a very special time to capture some family portraits for the Fischer family. You may remember Svenja's maternity session from last year, as well as her story about their first child that on The Fount Collective. Henry is proof that after a heavy storm comes a rainbow. He brings such happiness to his family and everyone he meets. His big blue eyes are filled with curiosity and brightness. I can't wait to see this little man so soon!
A lot of parents worry about the behavior of their children during their portrait session. With two kids of my own, I can say, kids will be kids. They will be adventurous, they will get distracted, they may have a meltdown and they will definitely have a mind of their own. I go into every session with a lot of patience and some tricks up my sleeve to be able to capture family portraits that I know they will love.
I loved working with this family on the New Jersey Shore last Summer. We dug in the sand, collected rocks, dipped our toes in the water, chased the seagulls, felt the wind in our hair and watched the enormous waves come crashing down.
