Kidography by Dania, Photographing the tiny humans, and those who love them. bio picture
  • Thank you for stopping by! Feel free to browse through my most recent sessions and the links that will provide you with all the information you'll need to book your very own session. My approach to photographing families is so much more than simply capturing a still moment. It's preserving a feeling, a memory...you. I hope that when you look back on your images years from now, you will not only remember how your children looked, but how they sounded, how they laughed and how they lived.

    Spring Calendar is now open! Currently also scheduling maternity, newborn and indoor lifestyle sessions through April. 69,109,97,105,108,32,109,101em liamE or sign up to receive email notifications so you don't miss out on spring mini sessions and other upcoming announcements. :)

I am so excited to introduce a new addition to my Simplicity Sessions, Simply Studio!  As much as I love lifestyle sessions, not all of my clients want the stress often involved in being photographed in their home.  So I finally put in the time to convert a spare room into a pseudo “lifestyle” studio!  No distracting backgrounds, props or frills.  Just light, soft, natural timeless images of your babe.  Studio sessions are best for bumps, newborns and babies up to 2 years old*.   Email me to learn more!

*Sibling and family images can be added for an additional fee. Contact me for options.

Some days during this project, I am praying our day is interesting enough to warrant documenting.  Other days, I have an incredibly hard time choosing which image to share.  So as in past years, I’ve compiled a collage of “outtakes”, or images that almost made the cut, but then something even better happened.  :) Enjoy!

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you probably saw most of these, but for those of you who didn’t, I thought I’d put together a little slideshow.  Thanks for following our sometimes crazy, sometimes boring little life!  Outtakes blog coming soon.  :)

 

I just love simple bump sessions.  I love watching the glow of the expectant mother and the excitement of the soon to be big brother/sister.  The little girl coming in May is so incredibly lucky to have Max as her older brother.  We had so much fun during our session.  He is so full of life and energy I could have played with him all afternoon..oh wait.  I did. :) Can’t wait to come back to meet little sis when she makes her arrival into the world!

How incredibly amazing is Max and his bedroom?!

Happy New Year!  My last newborn of 2016 arrived just in time for Christmas.  I’m pretty confident there could not have been a better present for this family.  She’s going to be one lucky girl having these two amazing big brothers to look out for her.  A huge thank you to Kailin from Simply Scout Designs for helping make this session flawless!  Welcome to the world sweet Amelia!!

These were soooooo much fun!  I love mixing it up a little bit to give my clients a few different options during the holidays.  I’ll definitely be adding these barn minis to my holiday tradition!  No tree next year though….you’ll just have to wait to find out what my designer has in store for you!

Wow.  All I can say is WOW.  These were a hit last year, but the interest in them this year was just astounding!  Unfortunately for many (and myself frankly!), I don’t own a vintage red truck and rely on the kindness of those willing to rent it out for the day to make this happen every year.  I only had the truck for two days, so I squeezed in as many families as I possibly could given the shortened days and my own sanity.  This years truck won’t be available to me again next year (booooo), so if you know anyone willing to lend it out for a day or two, please contact me!  And if you want in on these next year, make sure to sign up to receive my emails…they sold out in record time so you don’t want to rely on the inconsistency of Facebook to get notification of registration!

I couldn’t resist sharing just a little sampling of these red truck mini sessions ..now that the holidays are behind us and I won’t ruin any surprises! :)

Every fall I get asked if November is too late for a fall session…and while I know my clients are stressing, I try to remind them that some of the best and prettiest foliage of the entire season can be found in early November!  Having leaves on the ground rather than simply on the trees makes a session.  This was a particularly odd fall since this November session looks like it could have been in August, but such is the weather in Upstate New York these days!

If you have followed me for any length of time, you know my friend Nate and his amazing mom and dad.  Well, they’re back on the blog today with their yearly Creative Session!  It’s been so so so much flipping fun watching him grow from a newborn babe to a spunky amazing kindergartner!

Many people ask me the differences between my full Creative Sessions and my Classic ones.  Well, one of my favorite things about my Creative Sessions are choosing a location that perfectly fits the family.  Mom knew she wanted something different from what I had already been shooting this fall….and she preferred somewhere with water.  So when I found this location, I was over the moon and just knew it’d be perfect for them!  And having no time constraint means we got to spend lots of time just playing, laughing and having fun, allowing us to capture moments that may not have happened in a shorter 30 minute classic session.  I’m just totally and completely head over heals for this family…and I hope they love these images as much as I loved taking them!

I love these people.  A lot.  Even if they weren’t my family, I’d still love them…never have you met such a generous, fun loving threesome.  And I am honored that they trust me year after year to capture their amazingness.  :)
