A Day In The Life Film - Albany NY Documentary

I've felt a little uninspired lately and what better way to find a little inspiration then to look at my children.  Maybe trying out some filmmaking by videoing our days homeschoolingI I can get out of this little rut.  I get asked about homeschooling often and so in case you have wondered what our day looks like homeschooling, I crammed our day into a minute long video.  It's obviously not everything, but my kids enjoyed it as much as I did.

Let me know what you think!

 

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 

Colonial Williamsburg - A Homeschool Field Trip

It's been a long time since I have visited Colonial Williamsburg, I can't remember the last time.  So on a recent trip down to Virginia Beach I took the kids west and we went on a field trip.  This year Holly and Sophie's studies cover Colonial Times so it was a perfect trip.  

It was a beautiful Tuesday afternoon, hotter then I was expecting.  Colonial Williamsburg was a lot more walking then I remembered, making us a hot sweaty mess, but we enjoyed ourselves.  So much to see and we didn't cover it all.  I know now it's important to check the day of the week you are going because not all exhibits are open every day.  The 2 restaurants opened were packed so we hit up the bakery, grabbed some sandwiches and drinks to go, and sat down at a picnic table.  It was perfect!

There was also only strawberry ice cream to be found in Colonial Williamsburg so we took an even longer walk to the shopping district to hit up a Baskin Robbins. 

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.

In Home Lifestyle Newborn Session | 2 Week old Newborn Photography

Being invited into a family's home to document a new chapter in their life is beyond amazing and heart warming.   Bringing home your first baby is pretty momentous as you do many things for this newborn for the very first time.  Of course every baby is amazing, but with #2 or 3, or in my case 4, you've done it before and kinda know what to expect :).  

This little newborn boy at less then 2 weeks was so full of smiles.  And his Big Sis didn't mind sharing all the attention.  My favorite shots tend to be the unscripted newborn moments!  Stretched legs, smiles, cries, changing time, & feeding time.  I hope you enjoy looking through this baby boys gallery as much as I enjoyed spending time with this beautiful family!
