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.

I often have a super hard time coming up with titles for my blogs…but when I think of this session, pink is the first word that comes to mind.  Perhaps dad and Dylan wouldn’t be too stoked about that, but the light was pink, the flowers were pink and moms dress was a gorgeous pink…so pink it is.  :)

Mom and I go way back to our high school days and  reconnected through the wonderful world that is Facebook a few years back.  Mom shares my love of photography and there a few honors as high as another photographer trusting me to take their own family pictures.  As such, the session focused mostly on mom and her three gorgeous babes (since she has a bazillion pics of her own!), but dad hopped in for some family pics and of course, I couldn’t resist sneaking in a few of just the kiddos as well.

Hope you love them Sarah!!

 

…and puppy dog tails…that’s what little boys are made of!  (a little David Bowie Labrinth anyone??)

I had so much fun with this wonderful family.  Mom is one of those friends I love being around because there is never a shortage of things to talk about…and those “things” often lead to belly laughs that hurt so hard it makes finishing our runs without a side stitch.  I just adore the heck out of her.  And well, as you’d imagine, her family is equally as awesome.

I loved hanging with these guys for the evening in her amazing gorgeous garden.  Boys are sooooo different than girls!  And it’s so fun to see the other side of things.  :)

Enjoy!

 

Golly me….where do I even begin with this blog post?  Lets first talk about Trinity.  I met her for the first time back in July of 2011 when I photographed her gorgeous family in Alford, MA.  It was one of those sessions that I knew would stick with me forever…she is one of those people you immediately love…and her family is just beautiful inside and out.  Her family picture has made its way onto almost every piece of marketing material I print.  :)  I had the pleasure of seeing them again last year when she came all the way to Charlton for my Christmas Minis.  Lucky me!!

Fast forward to this past January when I was contacted by Trinity’s sister in law Becky who wanted to schedule a large family session back in Alford for herself, Trinity and her other sister. I was so excited!!  We scheduled for June and thanks (not!) to weather issues, bug bites that created swollen eyes too difficult to photoshop out and other various reason, we had to reschedule to this past Friday.

All seemed good to go until I got an email from Becky last week letting me know that the week prior to our session, Trinity was diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer.  I will never again be able to pull into my local post office without reliving reading those words…stage 4 liver cancer…and the absolute horror I felt in the deep pit of my stomach.  How can this be?!  How does this happen to such an amazing person?!  Trinity was to begin aggressive treatment this week and decided to proceed with just a mommy & kiddo session on Friday….despite the 80% chance of rain the forecast was predicting.  So Thursday night I prepared for one of the most important sessions of my career.  These images had to be amazing…and they had to show the absolute love and adoration this mother has for her three beautiful children.  And I had to do that despite practically black skies and torrential rain forcing us inside.  Thank god for some magic lighting and some even more magic people.

Please keep Trinity, her husband John and her three gorgeous children in your prayers as she begins treatment this week.  She’s one tough cookie and I’m praying every moment of every day that she kicks some serious cancer butt.

Love you Trinity!!!!  xoxo

 

 

Despite some nasty clouds rolling in and our during our session (lighting nightmare for us photogs!) and Nate being semi unimpressed with my squeaky duck and oh-so-funny personality, I would have to say mom and dad did an amazing job getting this kid to light up and show me those smiles and belly laughs that are just so Nate.  Gosh I love this kid to pieces…and feel so ridiculously lucky this family has chosen me to capture their love over and over again.

Happy Birthday little dude Nate!!!

oh…and these itty bitty wet spots all over his shirt in the last pic?  We may or may not have seriously played in the water fountain.  :)

Sweet, sweet Kinley….I could have photographed her smiley scootchin’ bum all day long.  She is the cutest. thing. ever.

I just want to eat her up!   {nom, nom, nom}

Promised my ladies no distractions from good old fashioned quality family time so all emails, galleries, orders and inquiries will be addressed when I return the week of 7/29. Thank y’all for your understanding and patience!

Mwah!

Gosh was this family lovely….just lovely.  They booked way back with me in February when I was running my Maddie’s Mark special and they wanted to wait until we had some beautiful foliage and weather.  Boy was it worth the wait.  This family belongs amongst gorgeous flowers and green grasses….they were just beautiful inside and out and I was honored to have been trusted to capture them.

Say hi to the Fentons!

 

Gosh I love this girl.  It’s her third time being in front of my camera and she’s more beautiful each and every time.  Her spunk is second to none and oh my that tongue…she’s always sticking it out when she’s smiling and I just flipping love it..and her!!

 

There are only a handful of couples in my life that I love near as much as this one.  It would take me days to describe why so just take my word for it.  They are incredible.  Mom is that girlfriend you can always count on for a good ab workout when you’re with because the belly laughs are nonstop…and dad’s not so lame himself.  He’s also a brilliant architect (in another lifetime, I will steal his job).

So when he mentioned last year that he had his eye on this amazing barn in Saratoga Springs with the vision to turn it into his family home, my eyes lit up and I jumped at the chance to not only photograph the barn itself, but his lovely girls in front of the existing structure before they begin construction in a few weeks.  Because we were pressed for time before the barn beings its conversion, we had to move fast and unfortunately, the weather (and light) was not on our side….but thankfully, the girls spunky and beautiful personalities shined right through the dim dark skies…

 

 

And I have to include just a few of the gorgeous barn itself.  I can’t wait to post a before and after when it’s completed next year…it’s going to be flipping AMAZING.

 

So in my last newborn post, I mentioned why studio space is so wonderful.  Well, today’s lifestyle session proved that there is no right way to go when it comes to newborns.  I almost squealed as I walked around mom’s property this morning and came across this vintage gem.  Seriously?!

To.  Die.  For.
