Maternity + Family Photography | Schoharie, NY

I am always giddy when clients come back with their growing families. I’m past due on sharing some of this families past sessions. And I’ll get back to those.

I seem to post for a while and then I lag behind. I’m so sorry about that, but know that I am currently taking sessions now that my 5th baby has arrived and just about 3 months. This week in upstate NY it has been brrrrr….. But there are still great options for sessions, especially your own homes.

Blessings, Erin

Mommy & Me + Milestone Session | Albany NY Baby Photographer

I had the honor of photographing this babe as he entered the world last year, so it was wonderful to be able to see him and his mom again for a milestone mommy and me session.  Almost a year old.  He was not shy at all.

I've said it before, Cake Smash sessions are not my thing.  They are adorable and cute, but not something I enjoy photographing.  But give me a baby in his own element exploring, that I LOVE to photograph.

So, I hope you enjoy taking a peak at this little guy in his element exploring with his momma!

Delmar Documentary Newborn Story

I always get a bit nervous and excited when I photograph the family of a fellow photographer, especially one as talented as Danielle.  This was really my first full documentary session and I loved how laid back it was.  What I also enjoy during newborn sessions is getting the chance to hear the baby's birth story.  

If you're interested in a documentary session here is a peak into baby Atlas's story.  And I highly recommend checking out Danielle's beautiful work.  www.instagram.com/iamdanimari 

One Year Old Twins, A Family Session - Clifton Park NY

1 year old cake smashing sessions are not for me and for that reason I don't offer them, but that doesn't mean I don't LOVE photographing milestones.  It is so fun to see the little newborns I first photographed crawling, and walking, and talking...  I had a couple of milestone sessions recently and I'm so excited to share them here with you, after a little lag in posting. 

These baby girls have such fun personalities.  They came home from the hospital on heart monitors, but have grown to be two beautiful and healthy little girls.

Upstate Fall Family Session

I used to hate photographing families…  I was always trying to pose families, pose after pose in one session.  I would go home, upload the session, and dread editing.  My thought was I’m just not a family photographer and I’ll stick to the newborns…

BUT…  Something happened.  When I let go of the perfection, focused on connection and emotion I fell in LOVE with photographing families.  I do try and get that one photograph all mommas want of everyone looking at the camera, but I don’t let that take over the session.   Once that is out of the way I follow the children and focus on their connections with mom and dad and as siblings and I just let go. 

Now when I leave a session, I have a feeling of relief, because I know I'm going to fall in love with the gallery.  And did I ever fall in love with this session; A gorgeous family and a backdrop of gorgeous fall colors.  Enjoy a look at my favorites!
