He has the look| Syracuse, NY family photographer

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Oh, what a heart breaker. Look at him. I’ve been photographing this little guy since he was in his mom’s belly, and I think I have a crush.

I wasn’t even at his house to photograph him–it was more about the baby–his little sister–the youngest of 4. It is nice sometimes to schedule a session for just one child. If they are from a big family I guarantee they will love the attention.


Playtime with mom and dad.

The two youngest.

Love those baby blue eyes.

As always, thanks for letting me capture these moments.


3 boys, 2 dogs, parents| Syracuse, NY family photographer

I am just getting more and more creative with my blog post names. I think this family actually had a cat or two as well, but I didn’t see them.

I just loved this session. The family had three boys under 5, which will make any photographer a little nervous, but I had no need to be. The kids were great, the baby slept (except when we tried to dress him up as an owl), the sun was out.

I think the photos reflect what a fun session this was.

Sometimes the in-between moments are so interesting.

a few more in-between moments

What a bunch of little hunks.


This is probably my favorite image from the session–ride on toy and all.

The dogs.

Congrats on the sweet baby boy. Thanks for having me out.

First a string of newborn baby girls. This week I show off the newborn baby boys.

What a sweetie.

What a good big sister.


Too bad SU couldn’t pull out a win for this little fan.

Such a sweet family and I just love every shot.

I always tell the newborns that if they can keep both eyes open and not cross them I’ll take awake baby shots.

Love this bookshelf backdrop.

The object of love is the best and most beautiful| Syracuse, NY wedding photographer

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

I just saw this amazing letter posted on another blog and I just had to share it.

It was a letter about love from John Steinbeck (author of Of Mice and Men, East of Eden, etc) to his son who was in boarding school and had just confessed that he might be in love. What great advice.

New York
November 10, 1958

Dear Thom:

We had your letter this morning. I will answer it from my point of view and of course Elaine will from hers.

First—if you are in love—that’s a good thing—that’s about the best thing that can happen to anyone. Don’t let anyone make it small or light to you.

Second—There are several kinds of love. One is a selfish, mean, grasping, egotistical thing which uses love for self-importance. This is the ugly and crippling kind. The other is an outpouring of everything good in you—of kindness and consideration and respect—not only the social respect of manners but the greater respect which is recognition of another person as unique and valuable. The first kind can make you sick and small and weak but the second can release in you strength, and courage and goodness and even wisdom you didn’t know you had.

You say this is not puppy love. If you feel so deeply—of course it isn’t puppy love.

But I don’t think you were asking me what you feel. You know better than anyone. What you wanted me to help you with is what to do about it—and that I can tell you.

Glory in it for one thing and be very glad and grateful for it.

The object of love is the best and most beautiful. Try to live up to it.

If you love someone—there is no possible harm in saying so—only you must remember that some people are very shy and sometimes the saying must take that shyness into consideration.

Girls have a way of knowing or feeling what you feel, but they usually like to hear it also.

It sometimes happens that what you feel is not returned for one reason or another—but that does not make your feeling less valuable and good.

Lastly, I know your feeling because I have it and I’m glad you have it.

We will be glad to meet Susan. She will be very welcome. But Elaine will make all such arrangements because that is her province and she will be very glad to. She knows about love too and maybe she can give you more help than I can.

And don’t worry about losing. If it is right, it happens—The main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away.



I love that I get to photograph so many great love stories. These two are getting married in May.

I sure do love it when guests do the worm at a wedding. I hope we get some good ones this year.

This shot was from Erica and Gino’s wedding.


Palace of Versailles, France| Travel Tuesday

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

Happy Tuesday everyone. It’s tax preparation time for me and I am very close to jumping back on a plane to France every time I look at my box of receipts that has to be entered into Quickbooks. Since my family probably wouldn’t be too happy with me if I skipped town I thought I would take a break today to edit my photos from Versailles.


Not sure about these two photos together. 🙂

One more France post and then I’ll have to start my next visit.
