A Picture Perfect June Wedding Day The feelings surrounding the first wedding of the season are hard to describe. Excitement Anxious Joyful Nervous It’s somehow all bottled up into one whole emotion I now know to expect come every season. When it first hit, I honestly thought I wasn’t cut out for this career, but […]

An In-Home Lifestyle Newborn Session | Chazy, NY This was such a fun session for me. Not just because I got to pet a dog or obsess over the cutest little newborn baby, but because this mom and dad kind of feel like extended family in a way. Baby Noah’s mom is the sister of […]

I’ll be honest, I get a little nervous about how many images I’ll be able to deliver for an engagement session when the couple tells me they only want to wear one outfit. Different outfits give the final gallery more variety, that’s just facts…unless you’re Charlotte and Evan apparently! They ended up with over 150 […]

I couldn’t shake the thought of not having posted it, and eventually my excuses […]

If I gave out awards for the couple who had the most fun at their engagement session, these two would top the charts. They spent 90% of their time laughing and giggling together, at each other, at my silly photo requests, Kasey falling…twice! It was just such a FUN session! It feels weird titling this […]
