Photo REWIND // Baby Cruz’s At-Home Newborn Session // Saratoga Springs, NY

It’s been a while since I shot this cozy at-home newborn session of Baby Cruz, but I just have to give it’s time to shine. There is something so peaceful about a baby at home, without the frills and swaddles and props. Having siblings around who are active and full of life, popping in and out of the frames, makes the house feel so full of love. Big Brother Clark did not disappoint with his candid appearances. He loves being a big brother and it certainly shows! This natural light filled, laid back lazy day, was perfect for this family. It won’t be long before it’s two boys causing a ruckus in this house. But for now at least, it’s the cutest calm before the storm, ever.

Kayte & Corey’s Vineyard Wedding // Altamont Winery – Altamont, NY

Kayte & Corey’s wedding at the Altamont Winery was a gorgeous summer-like September day, with gorgeous golden late day light and no shortage of emotion.  These two really pull at your heart strings. In fact, I’m not sure I’ve ever teared up more while photographing a wedding! Check out their beautiful day complete with nervous energy, teary moments, laughs and pure joy.

Thanks so much for allowing us to be a part of your day, Kayte & Corey!

Morgan’s Senior Portrait Session // Saratoga Spa State Park – Saratoga Springs, NY

It was 90 degrees and humid in late September for this session. But, you wouldn’t know it judging by Morgan’s easy-going attitude and abundance of smiles. We had beautiful light, a very occasional breeze and good attitudes all around. Sounds like the recipe for a successful portrait session to me. We triumphed through the unseasonably warm temperatures and the final images were our reward. In the end, I absolutely loved capturing Morgan sunny personality on camera.

Dave & Danielle’s Family Session // Yaddo Gardens – Saratoga Springs, NY

Sometimes you just click with your clients and each time you photograph them it’s just like hanging out with old friends. This family is exactly that. After an earlier session needed to be rescheduled because of  *literally* the most rain I’ve ever seen fall from the sky in my entire life, we thankfully lucked out. I got to spend another perfect summer morning in Yaddo with Dave, Danielle, Riley and Reagan, capturing their awesome little family. It’s always a session I look forward to. Now, my only real question is, when will Dave & Danielle adopt me?

Photo REWIND// Baby Cruz’s Sleepy Hospital Session // Niskayuna, NY

When Baby Cruz + Mom and Dad (as well as some visiting family) had a relaxed hospital session back in late February , I was obsessed with the images right away. So much so that it distracted me from ever posting them in a blog because I could never narrow them down! So we are doing a little rewind day today on the blog to celebrate Cruz.

At one day old, he was a tiny little dude with a head of hair most adult men only dream of. Check out his sleepy, cozy little session to take the sting out of your Monday.

Kayte & Corey’s Yaddo E-Session // Yaddo Gardens – Saratoga Springs, NY

Oh, man. Time flies when you’re planning a wedding! It’s easy to lose track of whats been done and what hasn’t. Luckily we realized that Kayte and Corey had been so busy planning their day that they hadn’t had a chance to do their E-Session yet. With their big day fast approaching( a mere 6 weeks away!), we found some free time, and a little luck, and turned that into a gorgeous summer evening session at Yaddo. Thankfully, we had perfect weather, only a few mosquitos, and lots of love. I just can’t wait to be a part of Kayte and Corey’s big day at the Altamont Winery in September!

Latrice & John’s Dec. 31st 2016, NYE Wedding // National Museum of Dance, Saratoga Springs, NY

What a gorgeous night this was for Latrice & John! With the electricity of New Years Eve in the air, the magic of the National Museum of Dance, the energy of DJ Cool Cat and joys of all things Mazzone; How could it have been anything less? The perfect evening for a couple I adore.

I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve prayed for snow  in my adult life. Latrice & John’s New Years Eve Wedding was one of those times. And mother nature almost held out on us, but at the very end of the night, the flurries started and we got our wish. THANK GOD! Because you know I love a good nighttime snowfall photo-op!

Congratulations Latrice & John! 2017 has already brought you great things. All the best to you.

Here’s to the new Mr. and Mrs!

Cheers!
