I offer 4, 6, and 8 hour packages that include myself and an assistant. While offering the traditional wedding photos that most couples like to have taken, I also work hard to capture those hidden caught in the moments shots and emotions that the bride and groom but may never witness until they see their photos, photographing the memories of the day as they unfold in a documentary, candid, and unobtrusive way. Some of the best photos of people are taken when they don´t know they are being photographed. I also love to capture all the little details that went into preparing for the day – details that are important pieces in telling the story of this wonderful celebration. I serve all the Capital District areas — Albany, Clifton Park, Saratoga, Schenectady, Troy, etc. as well as travel for those events out of town. All packages include your images with copyright on disc and posting online for family/friend viewing. Contact me for more information on packages!
I love to capture the emotions of the Jewish passage into “adulthood” from the perspective of everyone present, from the children and their friends, to the parents and grandparents, in an unobtrusive, candid style while still getting all the family together for group photos. Watching the kids having so much fun and just letting loose at the party afterward, is just great too! Mitzvahs are $150/hr. and can be as short as 1 hr or an all day event! You will receive all your images on disc with copyright and can have them posted online for family/friends to view!
Portrait sessions start at $125/hr., depending on location/travel and include all of your images on disc with copyright, unless otherwise noted.
Engagement sessions are great for getting to know each other before your wedding. My sessions run about an hour and can happen at a significant location of your choice (1st date, where you got engaged, etc.). They can be used for newspaper engagement announcements, save-the-dates, or even gifts for family.
Maternity sessions are best scheduled at 32-36 weeks and are a great way to celebrate this new chapter in your life and the beauty it brings. It’s important for your to feel comfortable so it’s entirely up to you how much you choose to show.
Newborns (in hospital or at your home)
My newborn photography sessions are more of a natural lifestyle type session which take place during the first days after your new baby’s birth, capturing the interaction between parents and their brand-new bundle of joy along with some posed portraits too. There’s no better place to capture those precious memories than where the little one came into this world or a home filled with the love and excitement of a brand new baby where you can choose some of your own favorite props — baskets, blankets, swaddles, accessories. I have a few mats/furs, etc. but still feel it’s a little more sanitary to have you use more of your own items rather than having me bring props from house to house or hospital room to hospital room. The length of these sessions can very greatly (1-3 hrs) depending on what you are looking for, and of course the mood of the baby, feedings, diaper changes, outfit changes, etc. All of which can take place during our originally planned timeframe. We do what we can depending on the little one!
Your children change so much in the first year of life that it’s a good idea to get those milestone photos (3, 6, 9 mos.) I’m open to any and all props, outfits, suggestions and ideas for your vision of what you would like from your sessions. I do not expect your children to sit and pose perfectly. While I try to do some posed shots, I also like to just have them play and have fun. As they get a little older, we can make them do more posed family portraits! But we can certainly give it a try with the little ones too! I really want to capture your family’s interaction and love. These sessions usually run about an hr. and can take place at your home, your yard, at your favorite park, etc. These sessions run about an hr. and include up to 5 people.
Pets are part of the family too! They can be included in the sessions above, or have a session all their own, that’s up to you.
Boudoir (a women’s bedroom or private sitting room)
A session in the privacy or your own home/bedroom — an intimate setting to create images that can be soft, romantic, sexy, sensual, or even a little bit naughty. These sessions are a great gift to the special someone in your life. You can just give a print, or even a whole photo album!
Prom is a fun and busy time during a senior’s last year in high school. It marks the end of their high school days with a fun celebration, allows them the chance to get dressed up, hang out with their friends and celebrate. It’s definitely something you will want to have captured. I can come to your house or meet at a local park to get photos of your child and their date!
Parties, parties, parties! Any party or get-together where you want to capture the memories forever — reunions, gender reveals, birthdays, anniversaries, graduation, housewarming, bridal/baby showers, dances, fundraisers, corporate events, etc. The possibilities are endless!
