  • Thank you for stopping by! Feel free to browse through my most recent sessions and use the tabs above 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 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. Make sure you're signed up to receive my newsletter so you can be notified of all upcoming mini session events and calendar updates!

Ok, two of my favorite things have come together…magnolia trees and sisters.  I adore all children and sibling relationships, but sisters, if you follow me at all, you know I have a soft spot for.  Especially ones that love each other the way these two do.  From the second we began shooting, these two were naturals in front of the camera.  A perfect mix of well behaved and spunkiness.  They listened and did everything I asked of them…but with a bit of their own flare, which makes for some of my favorite images ever!  The sun peeked in and out and it even drizzled for a few minutes, but that didn’t stop us from having an absolute blast!

Spring is here, spring is here!!  And never have you ever met a kid as happy as this.  I mean, I don’t think I have even a single image that she’s not smiling in.  Guess I’m not the only one who is super thankful for warm weather, flowers and leaves again!  Thanks for a super fun morning “Cece”!!

How has a whole year has gone by?!  Every time I leave a session with this family, I think I can’t possibly adore them more….then I see them again, and I do.  Maybe it’s because their girls remind me so much of my own…and their love for them shines through every moment of our sessions…or maybe it’s because they are just simply incredible people.  Nonetheless, I am so thankful that they’ve chosen me year after year to document their lives.

Happy Birthday sweet London!!

I flipping love siblings day.  One of my favorite things about my world is watching my girls love each other.  I’m currently listening to them put on a “show” in Kennedy’s room as I type…and the laughter traveling down the stairs is just contagious.  Their relationship has inspired my photography in so many ways.  I love capturing sibling images.  Not just because it’s the “money” shot that parents say if we get nothing else (except we always do!), get that one, but it’s so much more than just a “shot”.  It’s capturing those moments siblings are sharing secrets, laughing together, comforting one another or just simply loving each other.  It’s probably the one image that makes me smile more often than any other as I go through my sessions.  I’m a little short on time today given the girls are home on break (giggle, giggle, giggle), but I couldn’t resist compiling a few of my favorite siblings images to share….it’s a pretty awesome day.

My 5th annual February project is a wrap!  Gosh, that went quick!  But I do believe my girls are pretty happy to see my mug out from behind the lens.  As with every year, there are days where I stare at 4-5 photos and can’t pick just one to share as the “official” photo.  Other days, it’s 6pm and I’m praying our day becomes interesting enough within the next hour to capture something worth sharing.  But overall, when I look back at the images I took, I am astounded at how much we pack into our lives…both good, bad and funny.  And I realize that we are doing a pretty darn good job at living life to it’s fullest and having as much fun as we possibly can.  I closed out the month with 352 photos…and those are just the ones I actually edited and saved!  There were so many I wanted to share but just didn’t make the cut (Kennedy had final say in most of them).  So as I did last year, I figured hey, I took them, I might as well share as many as I can without driving you all crazy with our crazy!  So without further ado….

Ok, now before you think…what the flip are they doing?! Let me explain….

So I don’t remember exactly who started it, but months ago during our bedtime routine one of the girls climbed on their daddy to keep him from leaving…the other followed suit, and they begged me to join them. Thus began what has become our nightly “family sandwich”. I don’t know how long this tradition will last, but it’s one I am vowing to never forget, even if it embarrasses them silly someday.

I won’t tell you what we went through to get this image (just wait till you see the outtakes blog)…but since I always end my February project with a self portrait, I felt this was especially “us” this year. #biggestdorksever #awkwardfamilyphoto #butiloveit

Thanks for following a little bit of our crazy this month!!

In case you missed any this month, here’s a little recap.  :)

McKenna; a true artist and creative soul. She’s shy and easily embarrassed, yet unapologetically knows what she wants and likes. She’s smarter than she would like anyone to know, and cherishes alone time playing, drawing and writing. She’s freaking funny. She’s moody. She’s a mini-me. But so so so so soooooo much better.

Kennedy; often referred to as “kbabs” or “charlie”. Smart, witty and kind. Part princess and part rock star, she was born with a heart of gold. An avid reader who loves to be regarded as dorky, crazy and weird. She has boundless amounts of energy and determination, and never quits. She loves her family and her friends more than life itself, and would move mountains for them if they asked. She is a gift. She is loved….so. very. much.

Gosh it’s so easy to forget how sweet and teeny tiny those newborns are with the two practically teenagers (not really…but sorta really) I have at home….how lucky I am to get my baby fix right through my job. Alyviana, aka “Lyvi Lover” was just the happiest babe on the block last week and I was honored to have been trusted to capture her sweetness!

Sooooo….I had this lovely holiday vision that involved a pair of gorgeous sisters complete with white fuzzy hats and christmas pjs, giggling amongst Christmas trees in some amazing evening light…we had talked ahead of time so there were no surprises and I was promised full cooperation.  Well, apparently in the 10 minute car ride to the farm, the once adorable hat was now “totally embarrassing and terrible” and there was no convincing her otherwise.  So I ditched the adorable hats and begrudgingly embraced the messy hair look.  I’d like to say the switch was an easy one, but that McKenna of mine may be my toughest client to date…as you can see from how much darker it was when she finally decided (on her own terms of course) that she was willing to participate {sigh}.  I just keep reminding myself that these traits will make her one amazing adult, yes??© kidography by dania | albany new york child and family photographer© kidography by dania | albany new york child and family photographer
