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.
There is something special about having your newborn session in the home you first bring your baby home to. The majority of the homes that I photograph families in will not be their forever home. It is a great way to not only have great photographic memories from those first few weeks or months, but also in a home extra special to them.
This family is no exception. Although a big move outside of NYC was creeping up on them, they wanted to capture their daughter’s first few weeks in their light filled apartment in Manhattan. I absolutely loved this session (hello beautiful sunshine) and watching these two parents glow whenever they looked at their newborn daughter.

Starting off my 2019 portrait season with the cutest Albany/Saratoga Springs newborn session you will love to feast your eyes on. The Winter may seem drab when you head outside, but it is the perfect time to cozy up and get some family portraits in the comfort of your own home.
I met this beautiful new Mama a few years back as a bridesmaid in a wedding I photographed at Saratoga National (heyyyy Robin and Josh!). So, when she reached out about a family session to document the first few months with her husband and little Frankie, I was thrilled to see her again. How cute are these three? I can’t help but look at these photos with a big smile and hope they do the same for you.
