Oh how I adore this family. Remember their amazing maternity session in NYC? I got to meet this little guy shortly after he made his debut in this world. He was an absolute sweetie and as most newborns are, most comfortable in his parents arm. The “hardest” part of a newborn session every single time are the individual portraits of the baby. As soon as they are out of their parent’s arms they know something is different. The rest of the session is always a breeze for me, even when the baby is fussing. I loved seeing Fran and Sam again and meeting Jacob. Congrats on your newest addition. Sending you lots of love, patience and, hopefully, rest, as you balance parenthood and your medical careers.
Can we start a new hashtag #shedgoals? Not only am I completely in love with this family, their backyard is adorable and it is completely on my Pinterest board for my shed dreams. If you haven’t heard me preach this a million times before, I love newborn sessions. They can sometimes seem hectic, but I love being able to show families there is still beauty with all the chaos. This little guy, Connor, was born into the loving arms of incredible parents. The one thing his future holds is that it will be filled with love. Keep up the great work Mom and Dad!
NEWBORN AND FAMILY FILM PHOTOGRAPHER BASED OUT OF ALBANY AND SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY. TRAVELING FREQUENTLY TO NYC AND NJ TO DOCUMENT GROWING FAMILIES.
You may not know this about me, but I love 35mm film. You have probably heard this from me many times before, but a lot of my newborn sessions are photographed on cloudy, rainy days. Because of this, I often need to shoot wide open and sometimes my Pentax isn’t wide enough at 2.8 to shoot at a comfortable shutter speed. So, my Nikon F6 does that for me and still allows me to shoot film. I also use my 35mm when I photograph toddlers and really need some speed to freeze the motion. This beautiful NY newborn session is the perfect example of what 35mm film can do. It was dark, it was rainy, but the cuteness was worth it. And say hello to the littlest, sweetest lips you have ever seen. I loved working with this family to document their first official family-of-three photos in the comfort of their NY home.
