New York Newborn and Family photography
One of the most beautiful things about being a family lifestyle photographer is being able to capture both the calm and the chaos and the ever-changing definition of both. Being able to bring back memories in a single photograph and reminding parents that there is beauty in both. Reminding them of simpler times when chaos was defined as what felt like millions of little kicks waking them from their sleep and the calm of being able to rest as one wished. Refreshing their mind of a time when their newborn lay milk drunk on their chest, eyelids fluttering and smiles appearing. Wondering what their newborn could possibly be dreaming about to result in such a cute, toothless smile. Making them think about the time they thought they would never make it through the sleepless, chaotic nights. These memories that a single photograph can bring back to a parent are why I love photographing parenthood and growing families.
I am based out of Albany, NY and travel regularly to New York City for newborn and maternity sessions.
THE Michelle LANGE DIFFERENCE
You spend your entire life looking forward to the next big thing. Whether it be graduating from college, going on a much needed vacation, your wedding day after months (and maybe years) of planning, holding your baby in our arms after months (and, again, maybe years) of yearning to do so. Before you know it, those next big things were 5, 10, 15 years ago and have become a distant memory.
Your family photos will be one of the most important items in your life. Whether you choose to hang them on your walls, or keep them safely tucked away in an album on a bookshelf, they will be another reminder of how beautiful your life and your family really is.
