Wishing you a magical Christmas season!

Love,

I was so happy to hear that Charlotte and Henry were coming back to see me again for Charlotte’s 7-month portraits.  The shot of the two of them together from Charlotte’s newborn session is still one of my favorite sibling images.  They have both grown up so much since this spring – but they are both as darling as ever.

Thanks so much for coming to play!  Come back any time–I always have race cars, Smarties and puffs on hand:).

I recently had some time open up unexpectedly in my schedule and in honor of the quickly approaching Thanksgiving holiday, I wanted to try something a little different. In the wake of the natural distress and disaster that our area has faced in recent months, I am reminded again of how very lucky we are to live in a time and a place where we can generally take simple things like clean drinking water as a matter of course. I know it’s not the same everywhere, but it could be. With that in mind, I have decided to offer a limited number of last-minute special holiday mini-sessions this coming Saturday, November 19.

A donation will be made to Charity: Water for every session booked, which I am so very excited about. Charity: Water is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. I also love that 100% of public donations given to the Charity: Water organization go directly toward funding water projects (overhead and salary monies come from private donors and foundations). For more information, please visit http://www.charitywater.org/.

Sessions will last 20 minutes (one outfit, one backdrop), will take place in my Clifton Park studio, and will result in 5-10 final images. All ordering will be done in person at the studio on Saturday, December 3rd. I have prepared 3 exclusive collections for these sessions, each with a digital and a print option to best suit my clients’ holiday needs. Collection prices include the session fee for the session. Add-on products will also be available for purchase at special holiday pricing. A $350 deposit is required upon booking to reserve your session.

I will need to have at least 4 spots booked by this Wednesday, November 16th to be able to offer these special sessions, and there will be a maximum of 8 spots available, so if you are interested please contact me as soon as possible:).  You can find more specific details below along with some sample holiday cards.

I hope to see some of you this coming Saturday, but if I don’t, have a fantastic holiday season!

Despite appearances recently on this blog, I do have more than one child.  And I do love all five of them equally:).  I have been wanting to go out and take portraits of my two-year old in the fall colors for a while now, but with five kids, a newborn, a home to keep up, no sleep, reoccurring sore throats (see previous mention of no sleep), a husband in grad school and working full-time, and New York’s unpredictable weather, I wasn’t sure that would happen.  But it did.  Sure, it was horribly overcast and lightly sprinkling the whole time we were out, but we made it happen.  And while beautiful light is always, always desired and inspiring and takes images to that next level, there’s something to be said for cuteness in any weather.

So, here we are at 37+ weeks and I finally had the chance to take some pictures of my belly with my family.  That was the last thing on the “must do” list before Lemonhead’s arrival, so we are good to go any time:).  I want to express my thanks to my wonderful family who are always so kind and patient with me and my crazy ideas.  My darling husband shot most of these shots (lots of bringing me the camera so I could check things out and adjust the light, pose, composition, etc.) and my wonderful mother shot the rest.  It’s always hard as a photographer to be on the other side of the lens, I think.  But I know, I KNOW how grateful I will continue to be that we spent the time to find clothes and to take these images.  As a young mother of just one or two kids, everything felt so epic that I never thought I would forget any of the motherhood stuff.  Now, as a perpetually sleep-deprived not-as-young mother of almost 5, I realize that my memory is unreliable at best.  What a blessing to live in a day when photographs are so readily available.  I am so grateful for what I am able to do to capture the milestones in my own life and in the lives of my beautiful clients.  I am a lucky, lucky girl:).

Lemonhead, 37 weeks:
