Brittany and Frank are my kind of people. When we first met, Brittany and I hit it off instantly. Our initial consultation meeting lasted two hours because we have so much in common that we just couldn't stop talking to each other! Because of being on the same energy wavelength, I have found it so easy and completely rewarding to work with this couple on their wedding day!

Trezelle and I first met at Heartspace Midwifery‘s weekly parent-child community group; she was very pregnant and my son was 8 months old. The first thing I noticed about her was how stunningly beautiful she was and in what a poised manner she carried herself at 9 months pregnant. This was in stark contrast to myself, who was happy to get a shower and brushed teeth every day! I next saw her again several months later when I made head shots for the students of Doula Trainings International, where she had just finished an intense doula certification program. Now her postpartum doula business is about to commence, along with several other entreprenurial endeavors that she is embarking on, so it was time for us to make some kick-ass professional portraits! Trezelle told me that it is important to her that the city of Albany be part of her brand’s image since that is her target market, so we worked all the favorite spots downtown: the Capitol building, Education building, and the Empire State Plaza. I am so proud of this woman and her growing business and I am so grateful that she asked me to help create her brand’s images!

At Halloween time, Jenn and Dawn entered a contest I was hosting where I asked people to share images of their children dressed up in Halloween costumes, and they won! Their prize was a super discounted family portrait session and they wanted to have it at their home, which always makes me happy. I think it’s important to document families in their natural environments and it fits perfectly with my documentary-type photography style. We did some posing, we did some playing, we tried to eat some leaves… (well, that was mostly baby Levi), and we played with the dog, Rasta, who is a sassy little pup! It was a perfect fall day and we all enjoyed ourselves! Thanks for letting me photograph your family!
