It’s World Doula Week so what could be more fitting than an explanation about what a doula is and why you should consider having one as a part of your birth team.

Celebrating Doulas

I feel it is necessary to notify all of my families and followers about my procedures for the COVID-19 virus. I’m here for you! However, I urge that if anyone in your family is feeling any kind of illness or symptoms pertaining to ANY illness, please contact me to reschedule your session. If you are […]

Your Session & the COVID-19 Virus

“The attitudes and behaviors parents model will always (always, always) trump the lessons we’ve taught.” Janet Lansbury So I absolute am infatuated with the work of psychologist Dr. Vanessa LaPointe, and her view of parenting, so of course I had to share. Obviously we’re all struggling through this parenting thing – for me, on a […]

Parenting through Connection

So I’m a pretty sappy, sentimental kinda girl, and I love Motherly. If you haven’t subscribed to their newsletter or at least checked them out on Facebook, you need to (and no I’m not paid or affiliated with them, I just genuinely love their articles). I came across this article about how we only […]

Eighteen Summers

Photographs can take us places we’ve never been to and where we may never go. They can uplift us, inspire us, move us, and teach us so much about the world we live in, and places we couldn’t imagine living in. So many of us have those photos of everyone lined up in a row […]

My Favorite Unique Mom-Worthy Gifts

There are so many emotions present during birth; each one completely unique from another. The birth of Baby J came a little earlier than his mamas had hoped through a necessary induction. Nicole patiently labored through steady contractions with Megan at her side to keep things light-hearted and full of laughter. Even through a few […]

The Birth Story of Baby J | Bellevue Women’s Center, Schenectady, NY | Albany Birth Photographer

I had the privilege to photograph this special little man a few short days after his birth. Born at home (on my birthday!), Baby N came earthside into his mom and dad’s arms. His calm, quiet, demeanor is what I noticed first, and we discussed his possible past lives at length – his mom and […]

Welcoming Baby N | A Newborn Session in Chatham, New York | Catskill Newborn Photographer

I have documented this family since Baby J was still inside his beautiful mama’s belly, and even had the pleasure of attending his birth at Columbia Memorial Hospital, so I was incredibly excited when they reached out to me with the idea of a secluded, outdoor fall family session that really captured the authenticity of […]

Autumn Family Session | Queechy Lake, Canaan, NY | Hudson Valley Family Photographer

This Columbia County session marked a lot of really significant chapters in this family’s life. Eric and Kailey are celebrating their 10 year anniversary, their oldest son will be turning 6 in November, which I can’t believe, and their youngest will be 18 months in October – that last one I really can’t believe. For […]
