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 […]

I’ve been putting some feelers out to do some more in-home sessions while it’s frigid and miserable outside for the next 84 months (sliiiight exaggeration), and while I’ve had plenty of hits, nothing beats a good ol’ outdoor session with natural light.

I met Grace & Brendan at their session at the Normanskill Preserve in Albany in late September. Grace is so sweet and kind, and Brendan is equal parts kind and friendly. The couple brought 2 outfit changes and made an adventure out of having to change in the car. As uncomfortable and weird as that […]

Maddie & Elijah answered one of my model calls and I must admit, they did not disappoint. These cuties were so sweet together – young and clearly in love. We had a lovely golden hour session at the Empire State Plaza in downtown Albany in September 2020. And we made some serious magic happen. They […]

Johnny and Joey answered a local model call I put on Facebook and we met at Normanskill Preserve in Albany for their couple’s session at the very end of the summer. While it was mostly overcast that evening, the sun decided to peek out at one point and these two basked in its warmth along […]
