You Are My Greatest Adventure / Justin & Monique

Where do I even begin with these two?! Monique messaged me saying; “Girl, I want to have a session of just Justin & I.” Say what?! Yes Lady friend!! She specifically was looking to have purple flowers in the background. So I took to location scouting to see what I could find in early May. And I stumbled across these gorgeous purple flowering trees set against the beautiful old brick of a local church.

As parents of three young boys, Justin & Monique have recently made it a point to add more moments in their life focused on the two of them. And I could not be happier for them! Because lets be honest, to be the amazing parents they are, they need those moments of just being Monique & Justin <3

I first met Monique & Justin just about 8 years ago, when they hired me to photograph their twin boys in the hospital just after birth and a studio newborn session. Since then, we have had numerous sessions together over the years, documenting all three boys growth. And while we capture family images as well, rarely do we focus on Monique & Justin. So you can imagine my excitement when she told me she wanted me to help her with such a session!!

The day of their session was filled with dark clouds and rain; I told her it’s going to clear off and be beautiful just in time for your session. And don’t you know, as she drove to meet me, she encountered a fabulous rainbow as the rain subsided and the sun came out!

These two are definitely each others rocks! It has been such an honor to be Monique’s friend and watch her overcome many heartaches and obstacles over the recent years and begin to flourish and see her realize she is so so much more than just a mom, with the constant love and support of Justin by her side!

Meilhede Family / Winter Session / Glens Falls, NY

It is always so wonderful when families choose to come back to Erin Marie Photography for updated Family Portraits. Especially when it’s been a few years since I have seen them. It’s amazing to see how much their little ones grow, and and I love that I get to see how their personalities have developed. Lauren contacted me recently looking to capture some updated images of her gorgeous family. Specifically, she wanted to document this season of the last traces of ‘baby-ness’ and toothless grins! I was so happy to oblige, I just adore toothless grins <3

We chatted about outfits for their session, and I absolutely love that Lauren settled on the neutral and blush tones! Lauren did such a wonderful job taking the advice and samples I shared with her, and putting together gorgeous layered outfits that complimented each other.

Lauren and Brent really liked the idea of an outdoor winter session with snow, as their previous sessions with me have been in studio, and outdoors in spring and summer. This was a whole new look for them and I was so excited. I took to scouting some locations, since some of the spots I had in mind, probably weren't going to be easy to get into with all the snow we have gotten recently. When I mentioned Crandall Park in Glens Falls, NY; Lauren agreed that it would be perfect. It had all the snow we wanted, it was plowed for us to be able to get into, and it also had green trees and bridges to break up all that ‘white’ from the snow and give them more variety.

We lucked out that the evening of their session was one of the few ‘warmer’ days that we had, and we didn’t have to fight with the bitter cold. And just look at that gorgeous golden sun! Everything came together for a ‘picture’ perfect session!

Lake George / Family Vacation / Extended Family Session

Kelly contacted me in late July about scheduling an extended family session during their family vacation on Lake George, and this group was so much fun to work with!

I just adore this pure childhood image we captured.

She kind of sprung the idea on everyone and at first I think some of the group was a bit skeptical. Even still, everyone happily participated in grabbing different group images. There was so much laughing and joking around, we could just feel the joy from this big group being together. And there couldn't have been a prettier location than Lake George and the mountains in the background.

By the end of their session, I think everyone truly enjoyed themselves and were so happy to capture these memories while they were all together in one location.

Thank you Kelly and family for allowing me to share in a small part of your vacation with you!
