Hiya, friend! Welcome to my little corner!
Here you'll find tons of past sessions, session/wedding tips & tricks, and free resources regarding all types of photography.

We went to DC last weekend to visit my sister and future brother-in-law, and while I didn’t take enough photos, I wanted to share some of the ones I did take. First stop was the Botanical Gardens which was bonkers-busy and crawling with way too many people, but it was so lovely and we enjoyed […]

Weekend in Washington, D.C.

OK, so I have to just preface this post by letting you all know how much I love this gal. Working with her is an absolute dream and I am so lucky to get to call her my friend. I can’t even remember how we met, but I’m so glad we did. Maisie and I […]

Headshot Swap with Maisie Snyder Photography

Sarah is a rockstar – both behind the camera and in front of it. We have worked together on several weddings and shoots in the past year or so, and I could not be happier to have met another photographer from the Capital Region like myself who is down to get all the creative juices […]

Mini Branding Session with Sarah Busso Photography

To say this family is one of my favorites would be an understatement. I have worked with the Peters’ clan twice in the past two years and I love getting to be around them, let alone photograph them. They are so sweet together and you can so obviously see all the love that is shared […]

Fall Family Session at Normanskill Farm

But add in a dose of perfect evening weather and an adorable couple, and we were making magic, baby. I mean, these colors – SERIOUSLY?! […]

Couple’s Session at Thacher Park

Anna and Colton’s beautiful September wedding was nothing short of wonderful. The love and happiness these two share was so clearly sewn into their day. Surrounded by dear family and friends, Anna and Colton tied the knot at the Rose Garden in Schenectady, New York, followed by a fantastically fun reception at Key Hall at […]

Late Summer Wedding at the Schenectady Rose Garden

Just some snippets of things around our humble abode. Enjoy.

Around Our House

It’s about damn time I blogged this beautiful winter wedding. Alexis & James grew up together, and fate brought them together several years ago when they decided to start dating. The rest is history. Their beautiful January 2022 wedding at the Desmond Hotel was inevitably freezing cold, but these two tied the knot in stride […]

Winter Wedding at the Desmond

I’ve been in a little bit of a rut lately and it’s been very disheartening and discouraging and most days it’s difficult to push through some of these feelings and do anything at all. But every now and then, something happens that lifts me out of my depression and puts an enormous grin on my […]
