7 Months and just a total sweetheart.  I had so much fun watching little Zoey interact with her parents–who were 100% infatuated with her.  Poor thing was a bit under the weather, but she was so patient with us and even took a little nap for us.

Come back and play any time, baby girl!

It’s almost time for one of my absolute favorite time of year to shoot outdoors.  Not only is an apple orchard in bloom one of the most breath-taking backdrops for portraits, but it’s a sign that spring and new growth are in full swing.  This time of year always makes me feel like absolutely anything is possible:).

The unseasonably warm (but entirely welcome) weather we have been experiencing this year means that the orchard will most like be in bloom well before the typical Mother’s Day weekend.  Because the blooming window is so short (only about a week) and spring weather in New York is changeable at best, scheduling is done by waiting list.  If you are interested in booking an orchard session, please email me at: jessica@nosmallmoments.com for more information.  You will be placed on a waiting list and once the trees are in bloom (most likely some time in April this year), I will contact inquiries in the order they come in.  That means that I may call you, say, on a Tuesday about shooting the next day or the day after.  Depending on the weather, there may only be a couple of nice shooting days, so spaces are extremely limited.

Mini sessions are the perfect way to capture your pregnancy, a milestone for your child or baby, update your family portrait, or try out custom photography if you haven’t yet had a chance to.  They also make a perfect Mother’s Day gift to your wife (or to yourself–because, let’s face it, we all know who schedules the family portraits).  Unlike a full session, mini sessions include 30 minutes of shooting and result in 8-12 final gallery images.  Four exclusive digital and print collections are available with this year’s mini sessions, and an in-person ordering date will be scheduled after your session.

Here’s a little peek of the fun we’ve had the past couple of years:

Be sure to secure your spot–can’t wait to see you!

Almost two years ago, I was privileged to meet the most wonderful family to document their first pregnancy and new baby.  I was beyond thrilled to hear last year that they were expecting for a second time–I have been looking forward to this session for months!  Nadia has grown into such a beautiful little girl (with the same darling chin dimple from Grandpa) and is the perfect big sister.  Baby Ella couldn’t be sweeter.  I just wanted to snuggle her all day:).

Thank you so much for sharing both of your little people with me–it’s truly been an honor to watch your family grow:).

This past year was quite an adventure.  2011 brought so many challenges as well as blessings–and in the midst of it all, I had the privilege to photograph some of the most wonderful and beautiful clients.  I can’t wait to see what is in store for this coming year!
