  • 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 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.

Some days I was grasping at straws to find something interesting enough in our day to use as our photo of the day.  Other days, I had so many to choose from I spent WAY too many hours plowing through them all and deciding on just one.  I finally finished going through the other 394 images I saved and picking/editing my favorites.  This is just a sampling of some of them.  :)

We had no idea when we named McKenna that they would so quickly be coined “McKennedy”.  I would have done it anyways but it’s pretty funny HOW many people refer to them as that…either individually or as a team.  Opposites in almost every way, 80% of the time they balance each other pretty darn perfectly.
We often call them the Princess and the Bull.  I’ll let you guess who’s who.  :) © Kidography by Dania |  Albany New York Child Photographer © Kidography by Dania |  Albany New York Child Photographer

This image is one of my outtake favorites…they made up this game called “mommy, mommy, come alive”.  It can only be played apparently on bouncy surfaces and it makes them giggle harder than anything else in the world.   © Kidography by Dania |  Albany New York Child Photographer

I’m a sucker for nicknames and my sister in law started calling Kennedy “kbabs” shortly after she was born (her middle name is Barbara, after her grandmother).  It’s the only nickname that even kinda sorta stuck around…while I find while I write it a lot, I almost never say it out loud.  Instead, I call everyone in my family “bub or bubby”.  But for the sake of distinguishing on my blog, she shall be called Kbabs.

One day before that pesky second top tooth finally came out.  She was messin’ with it in 90% of the portrait images I took of her that morning.  :) © Kidography by Dania |  Albany New York Child Photographer © Kidography by Dania |  Albany New York Child Photographer

aka, “McLou”, “Bubbylicious”, or “McKenna. Lily. Bagyi.” when she’s in trouble.

I am always so nervous on the last day of my February project…getting in front of the camera is more than a little uncomfortable for me. But like every year, once it’s done, I wouldn’t want to end my project any other way.

Till next year.  :)   Thanks for following our little bit of crazy this month!

If you follow me pretty regularly, you know all about the amazing Maddie’s Mark, founded by my dear friend Erin Musto.  I’ve been blessed time and time again to be able to assist Erin and her mission of bringing “best days ever” to families battling every parents worst fear…

When I was contacted last week about photographing sweet little Ryder during his “best day ever” at Willard Mountain, I was honored and humbled to share my expertise.  Ryder is a vibrant 4 year old boy diagnosed with DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma)…lives in Florida and had never before seen snow.  Erin and her amazing team partnered up with Willard Mountain this past weekend to give Ryder a fun filled day of tubing, snowball fights and his first time on skis.  I was thrilled to be there to capture some of those amazing firsts and witness first hand his contagious giggles and joy.

Keep fighting sweet Ryder.  You are in our thoughts and prayers each and every day.

2013 was a great year for new babies!  I just love when new members enter the Kidography family.  :)  And I adored seeing some of my past newborn clients coming back as big sisters and brothers!  Thank you for allowing me to follow this journey of childhood with you.  I am truly honored…and hope to see many (if not all!) of you back this year for one year portraits!

I cannot believe I didn’t blog this sooner!   With the crazy that is my  holiday season, the blog post just slipped by me.  But it’s just too cute to keep to myself so I suppose better late than never right??

I couldn’t have been more thrilled that it snowed the evening before this session…the scenery looked like something right out f a movie…and you would never have known how cold it actually was based on the smiles I was getting from this little man.  Maybe not all of winter is so bad after all.  :)

People are always nervous to book sessions into November and I always tell them that some of my favorite images come from early November sessions!  the last of the trees are turning and for some reason, they always seem to be the most vibrant…and about half of the leaves have fallen on the ground, covering the browning grass, turning it beautiful.  Put a family as lovely and fun as this one in a setting like that and I am one VERY happy photographer!

I love this little dude.  And I loved watching his pure joy as we played in the leaves until we practically ran out of day light.  :)

I adore photographing this family…their absolute love and adoration for each other shines through in every image I capture.  I was lucky enough to see them three times this year, AND to hear the great news that Reese will be a big sister in 2014!  I can’t wait to meet their new bundle of joy and see Reese love all over her new brother or sister.  It’s going to be awesome!  But for now, here are a few images from their few last months as a family of 3.  :)

Gosh I just love to see these smiling faces year after year.  I’m not sure there is any better compliment than a family who comes back to me every single year and trusts me alone to capture their precious family moments.  Thank you guys for the honor!
