Halloween Success!

It is truly a blessing to me that I am able to host this amazing event every year, and this year was our SIXTH year! How incredible is that? This event continues to be possible and grow bigger each year because of you guys! All of you, in the amazing community of ours, who come in each year with your little ones. It is so awesome to get to see lots of returning faces and how much they have grown, as well as meeting new faces!

Thank you, to all of you, for making this year another successful year. With your help we raised $580 to donate to the M-CM Network!

Check out all the adorable kiddos with their costumes that came in! Let me know in the comments which costume is your favorite!

Abigail Turns One Year!

I first met Thomas & Katie almost a year and a half ago, when they contacted me about maternity and newborn images. When we first meet, we just 'clicked' and I have enjoyed getting to know them more and more over the last year. Recently I got to meet up with them again to photograph Abigail's one year images. And it couldn't have been any better of a session.

We ended up at Yaddo Gardens in Saratoga Springs, and we got some of that gorgeous golden sun peeking out by the 'castle' to accent some family images. We then worked our way around the gardens, making stops here and there to capture Abigail and all her adorableness. Then we did a little cake smashing and ended the session with her getting 'cleaned up' and splashing in my little tub.

It has been such a pleasure photographing this family, and watching them grow. I can't wait for many more sessions with them!

These Kiddos Have My Heart — The Wise Children

Seriously, these little kiddos are some of my favorites! I first got the chance to photograph them when mom was pregnant with baby number three, Landen. Since then I have had the opportunity to photograph this family multiple times and share in some of their special moments. It has been amazing watching not only these little ones grow, but the family as well, adding a fourth little one! And every time I see them, the girls just pick right up and talk and play with me like an old family member.

Recently I caught up with them to do a quick little session to capture some updated images of each kiddo. As per usual, Ava & Kara were ready and willing, totally playing up for my camera. And in true Landen fashion, he wanted nothing to do with it and made me work for it :) Greyson, well, he gave me a couple good little rounds of just hanging out and letting me capture him. But he did also have a period of roaming, much like his brother, where I had to keep up with him. But it was a gorgeous evening for their session, and I was so happy to be able to capture a handful of images of this season of their life!
