  • 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.

Wow, were these a hit this year!!  I could not have been more excited about this set up when my designer told me her idea a few months ago.  Finding a vintage red truck up to our standards wasn’t easy, but it came together better than we could have imagined.  I typically don’t repeat my holiday mini set ups from year to year, but I had such a long waiting list for these that I may just have to bring them back in 2016!  So if you know anyone with a red vintage truck who’d be willing to let us borrow it for a day or two, let me know!  With over 25 families participating this year, I couldn’t possibly share every image, so here is a just a fun little sampling.  :)

Dania:

I’m Nathan (Nate) DiPalma’s grandfather. We have admired every one of his photos since you started.I take every opportunity to show your photos to everyone who will put up with a proud grandpa.

I saw your request about the truck. I go to a lot of car cruise ins during the Spring/Summer. One fellow I’ve gotten to know casually runs a web site called capitalregioncarshows.com . If there’s anyone who could find you a red (or any other color) old truck it would be him. Bill Schroeder can reached via e mail at oldcorvettes@Gmail.com .

During the season, there’s also a “truck specific” show/cruise-in which may provide you an opportunity to contact some owners.

Please accept our best wished for you continued success. We love seeing Nate grow through your artistry. Thank you

Andy and Karen DiPalma

I have been looking forward to this session all season long!  I met this lovely downstate family back in 2013 when they took a chance on me and drove north 2 hours for our session.  It’s so flattering that they loved my work enough to make the trip…twice!  Mason simply has just one of the best personalities ever.  Truly, I could have spent days with him.  I will never forget his adorable little voice shouting at me from the parking lot after we said good-bye “thank you for the pictures!!”.  Seriously, swoooonnnnnn….

Amazing-ness Dania. TOTALLY AWESOME!!

I could go on for pages about how wonderful this family is.  Inside and out.  But honestly, you didn’t come to read a bunch of sappy words telling you that they are the kindest, funniest and sweetest people you’ll ever have the pleasure of meeting.  Instead, I’ll let the images speak for themselves…

Oh and Ps.  If you see Cara Olsen out and about today, please wish her the happiest of days.  It’s sorta her birthday.  And her birthday is sorta the biggest deal ever.  Love you girl!!

Cara Olsen -

I mean, I honestly can’t even put into words how much I absolutely adore these images and YOU! You have perfectly captured my kiddos and their personalities in each of these images…. Cam’s real laugh (and dimples of course) and Josie’s spunk.. you even caught her biting her nails… I am dying over every single image and I can’t thank you enough. Thank you for giving me the absolute best birthday present ever. Love you my friend.

Cara Olsen -

I’ll just be here on your site swooning over these images all day… don’t mind me!

Sharon Passaretti Beach -

So sweet, all the images are beautiful!

The second I laid eyes on this beauty, I knew this was going to be an awesome session.  And it totally was.  She stole my heart from the very first frame…and frankly, if the sun wasn’t setting, I may have just kept on photographing her and her lovely parents for hours and hours…I mean seriously, how amazing are they??

Abigail Morrison -

Great shots! She is so adorable!

Stacie Battaglia -

Ohhhh, She is SO adorable! So are Alex and Jess! XO

This family was just awesome to photograph.  Each girl had a totally unique personality which was just an absolute pleasure to capture on camera.  We got some sweet, some sassy and everything in-between!!

Liz Nitsky Egan -

We know Sage! She goes to school with Liam! Cutest girl ever!

It feels like just yesterday I visited this newborn little boy and his lovely parents…and here he is just turning 4.  How does time go so fast?!  I’ve absolutely loved seeing him grow over the years and capturing his milestones.  I sometimes have to pinch myself to remind myself that this is real life…I really have this job…I really have these amazing clients…gosh how lucky I am!!

As we planned this birthday session, mom wanted two things.  Water and sun.  This location could not have been more perfect.  I loved watching him play, I loved watching the light change, I loved playing with him, his parents and the amazing light the sky offered us that evening.  We’ve been trying for a sunset session for years and the weather gods finally smiled on us this year. Everything about this session makes my photographer heart happy…

See you soon guys!!  xoxoxoxo

Simply amazing !! I’m not saying this as Nathan’s grandpa but also as someone who appreciates art.

These three girls are beyond gorgeous…both in looks and personality.  It makes me almost wish I had considered just. one. more…

Fall is officially in full swing!   The year is winding down quickly and my calendar is jam packed with fun stuff between now and then!  For those of you who still want a 2015 session, here is what is left…

Holiday Minis – sold out

Weekday Bundles:  Lots of flexibility with these!

And because no blog post is complete without an image, here is fall favorite from last year. :)

I have been photographing this family for three summers now and every session I think “how can next year possibly be any better!?”  and somehow, it always is.  This family is full of so much personality it’s impossible not to capture amazingness every time I pull my camera out around them.  Couple that with one of the most amazing locations I have ever shot in, and this session just makes my photographer heart very, very happy.  Thanks as always for an amazing evening guys!!!
