Yep, still super busy over here – plugging away at wedding proofs and fall portrait sessions, with the intentions of updating the blog over the winter – otherwise known as ‘down time’ in the wedding business.  But I cannot hold back any longer – I need to share some of Becky & Chris’ National Museum of Dance wedding fabulousness!  We started with a sweet first look, followed by some fun family and wedding party photos at Yaddo Gardens.  They held their wedding ceremony at Saratoga State Park by the reflecting pool at the beautiful Hall of Springs.  One of the special highlights of the event was the New Orleans style second line wedding march out of the wedding ceremony, appropriately led by a jazz band.  This was in a tribute to the time Chris had spent in New Orleans.  So fun – the guests loved it!  Especially the personalized beer Kozies!  The evening capped of with a rousing celebration and tented reception at the Saratoga National Museum of Dance, including some great performances by Grand Central Station and guest appearance by Chris’ aunt, who sang their first dance and their mother/son dedication dance.  There were so many fabulous personal touches.  Now, take a peek at some of the stunning eye candy that formed a celebration to remember for two very kind, very sweet people.

Congratulations, Becky & Chris!

Sooooo, the blog still works.  Hahahaha.  I’ve been so busy working through proofs that the blog has stalled.  But I’ve been loving all the great engagement sessions lately that I needed to share!  Here is Emmalee and Sean’s Saratoga Engagement Shoot – a nice, causal evening late in September, just on the cusp of fall.  But as I’m sure you know, this season has been a strange one – weather-wise, so it felt a little more like summer than fall, which made their baseball set so appropriate.  We met up at Saratoga State Park and soaked up the pleasant evening air and introduced ourselves to one another – something I find extremely beneficial on the wedding day – that early introduction.  So often I hear from couples that they are glad we did the session together before the wedding, as it helped put them at ease and gave them an idea of how I work and how they fit into one another, photographically speaking.  And let’s not forget – it’s just fun!

I look forward to seeing Emmalee and Sean again in May for their Desmond wedding!

Yes, you read that correctly – I’m featuring a winter engagement session in July!  I sat on this one, kind of like you save guest towels for a special occasion.  I just knew it would perfect to post in a warm, even sweltering month as we would more likely appreciate the scenes, instead of when all of our teeth were chattering from the below-freezing temps, like the day we photographed Emma and Shawn’s winter engagement shoot.  It was 19 degrees, I believe – right smack in the middle of a relentless cold snap, but oh my, oh my, how I do love that sweet winter light, especially at sunset.  It flies by like a wispy breeze, hard to catch, ever so quick, but if you act fast, you can capture the icy, pastel magic!  And we did.

We started at Emma & Shawn’s place and played  little with their maltese fur-babies, Fredrik and Luke, who nearly stole the show!  Then we headed out to nearby Saratoga Lake at Brown’s Beach, where Shawn had originally popped the question (in warmer months).  They were troopers, and as usual, despite my warnings, a little stunned by exactly how cold it was.  LOL  Standing still in those frigid temps is a whole different ballgame from, say, winter sports or moving about on a brisk fall day.  It’s bone-chilling cold!  But they pulled through, even shedding coats for a few shots.  And Emma, in those poppin’ pink heels, trekking through crunchy snow!  So in love!  Ahhhh, the process vs. the results – it was so worth it!  Nature blessed us with a beautiful sky that evening.  Then we headed back to their abode to thaw and for kicks, finished with Emma’s original vision of snuggling up in lounge wear, because brrrrrrr – you need a glass of wine to warm from the inside out and, hey, why not!

So in just one month (August), these beautiful people will make it official.  In the meantime, let’s enjoy this look back at the oh-so-cool memories of their winter engagement session – a great way to ‘break the ice’ before the big day!  (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.  Pun intended.)  ;)

We had fun with Michelle and Kevin’s Thatcher Park engagement session, not once but twice!   Mother Nature has not been overly kind this season, and when we headed up to Thatcher Park overlook for the first time, she decided to spritz on us unexpectedly, though the cloud-cover made for some great shots of the horizon.  We were able to sneak in a few sweet shots of the bride and groom-to-be enjoying the view.  We headed back another day in full, warm sunshine and completed the session.  Michelle and Kevin made it so easy, fitting into one another like lock and key.  I enjoyed getting to know them and watching their connection flourish.  Engagement sessions are always a fabulous way to get acquainted before the hustle and bustle of the wedding day!  I look forward to working with them for their October wedding!

Sister or mister gender reveal – what fun!  With baby number four on the way, Mama wanted to do something special with her girls, so she organized a gender reveal.  She couldn’t contain her anticipation and learned of the gender in advance.  This allowed her to prep the balloon-pop with the appropriately colored confetti inside.  Luckily the tassels didn’t give it away because the sisters were super excited to learn their new addition would be a baby brother!  After the exciting news settled in, we captured a few portraits of the sisters, as well as some snuggles with Mama.

Paisley came to see me for her studio newborn session and ‘see’ me she did.   Haha – she was not very interested in sleeping for very much of her session.  She was too curious.  She fought it, which yielded some of the cutest ‘yawn photos.’  But despite being quite alert, she was still very chill, relaxing in the wraps, waiting patiently for me to get over oohing and ah-ing at all her cute little details, her tiny button nose, her sweet little overbite, and her pretty almond eyes.  Eventually she gave in long enough to capture a few snuggly curled poses, but soon she was back and ready to go.

Stay curious, sweet Paisley, and welcome to the world!

Holy pink-blessings – little Kinsley Jane did great for her in-studio newborn session.  She slept like a champ and relaxed into a bevy of sweet poses with little effort.  She spoiled me!  And Mom and Dad brought the sweetest little NY Yankees cap, a gift from Kinsley’s grandma, and Kinsley just had to take it over the top with the cutest little smile as she hugged the softball to her little pink chest.  Ah heck – I’ll say it – it was a HOME RUN for sure!  She gave me chills, and I knew her Daddy would love it, despite Mom feeling as though she were wearing the wrong team.  Haha.  I enjoyed capturing all her little squishy details, and she graced me with a few smiles throughout the session.  She also proved herself to be a little tulip queen.  I could have photographed her all day!

Welcome to the world, Kinsley Jane.  I know you will continue to ‘knock it out of the park’ with your cuteness and springtime freshness.

It was a pleasure to meet little Delaney Marie for her in-home newborn session and see her family again, including big sister McKenna and fur-sibling Roxy!  I first met McKenna and Roxy at McKenna’s newborn session four years ago, which seems nearly impossible to believe – how time flies!  I’m just smitten with Roxy, who is the model fur-sibling.  They call pitbulls the nannie dog for a reason.  She’s a great protector and snuggler of her little humans.  McKenna and Roxy were stars on Out of the Pits website for some of a sweet shot of the two of them – kisses from Roxy – and here we are again with baby sister, little ‘Laney-bug,’ as her mother affectionately refers to her.   Delaney, the little nugget, seemed to be perfectly at ease throughout her session, enjoying the cuddles and snuggles of her big sister and family.  My heart swelled when I captured their family portrait, including curious Roxy.  So sweet!  And we even got a repeat shot of the little princess with her Daddy’s badge – just like big sister McKenna had.  Mom pointed out that Dad’s badge number was identical to Delaney’s birthday (3/19) – just like McKenna’s was at the time!  Wow!  Talk about serendipity.  The icing, though, may be the adorable lady-bug shot and Delaney couldn’t have pulled it off any better.

Congratulations, K-family, and welcome to the world, little Delaney!  Enjoy all those sister snuggles of both human and canine.

Spring has brought a garden of beauties in for a Studio Newborn session, including this sweet jelly bean, Hailee Grace, who brought her squishy pink cheeks and smiley dreams.  I loved capturing her little details and she slept like a champ.  Maybe it’s because her parents have a great sense of humor, or maybe it’s because she’s as pleased as we all are that spring is finally here, or maybe it’s because she popped into the world a little earlier than anticipated, but she was so easy-going throughout her studio newborn session.  And she even graced us with a few subtle smiles.  So cute! blush baby wrap, pink flokati basket stuffer, newborn baby girl, spring baby, April baby, newborn photography, Jenn moak Photography, studio photo shoot, pink and grey, blush baby babygirl_02 newborn baby girl, spring baby, April baby, newborn photography, Jenn moak Photography, studio photo shoot, pink and grey, blush baby, baby profile, baby cheeks newborn baby girl, spring baby, April baby, newborn photography, Jenn moak Photography, studio photo shoot, pink and grey, blush baby, baby lashes, baby cheeks, sleepy baby, baby details newborn baby girl, spring baby, April baby, newborn photography, Jenn moak Photography, studio photo shoot, pink and grey, blush baby, baby feet, baby toes, baby details newborn baby girl, spring baby, April baby, newborn photography, Jenn moak Photography, studio photo shoot, pink and grey, blush baby wrap, baby feet, baby toes, wedding rings newborn baby girl, spring baby, April baby, newborn photography, Jenn moak Photography, studio photo shoot, pink and grey, blush baby, baby yawn newborn baby girl, spring baby, April baby, newborn photography, Jenn moak Photography, studio photo shoot, pink and grey, blush baby, baby hands, baby fingers, baby details baby bunny,newborn baby girl, spring baby, April baby, newborn photography, Jenn moak Photography, studio photo shoot, pink and grey, blush baby, Easter baby newborn baby girl, spring baby, April baby, newborn photography, Jenn moak Photography, studio photo shoot, pink and grey, blush baby,  newborn pose, side pose newborn baby girl, spring baby, April baby, newborn photography, Jenn moak Photography, studio photo shoot, pink and grey, blush baby, tummy pose, bum-up pose, baby posing newborn baby girl, spring baby, April baby, newborn photography, Jenn moak Photography, studio photo shoot, pink and grey, blush baby newborn baby girl, spring baby, April baby, newborn photography, Jenn moak Photography, studio photo shoot, pink and grey, blush baby, baby profile, baby cheeks newborn baby girl, spring baby, April baby, newborn photography, Jenn moak Photography, studio photo shoot, pink and grey, blush baby, mom and dad, baby hands, baby fingers, wedding rings newborn baby girl, spring baby, April baby, newborn photography, Jenn moak Photography, studio photo shoot, pink and grey, blush baby, baby in a basket, baby in a bucket, newborn pose newborn baby girl, spring baby, April baby, newborn photography, Jenn moak Photography, studio photo shoot, pink and grey, blush baby, baby details, baby crown, baby head, baby toes, baby feet, baby hands, baby curls, newborn hands, newborn feet, black and white photo

I’m honored to have visited with another growing family this spring.   I was privileged to document Mom and Dad’s wedding years ago and big sister, Olivia’s, first year, which is hard to believe was 4 years ago.  And now, I enjoyed snuggling little sister, Charlotte Julianna for her in-home newborn session.  I was so proud of big sister, Olivia, and impressed by her enthusiasm, because she hasn’t always been the biggest fan of my camera pointed in her direction.  LOL  But she is so excited about her new status as big sister, she couldn’t give us enough big smiles and snuggles with her new little sister!  Mom said they had ‘prepped’ her in advance of the session, but it appears Olivia is a natural nurturer and not much coaxing was needed.  So cute!

Little Charlotte has the sweetest mushy cheeks and the most adorable set of scrunched lips.  All her baby details made me swoon.  I loved her purple mermaid-theme nursery.  And grandma helped carry the theme with the crocheted mermaid set.  The funny thing is, Charlotte posed practically all on her own for that shot.  Hahaha – she’s a natural, too!  She cooperated throughout the majority of her session (she had to show up her big sister, I suppose, since her newborn session had been a bit more challenging, as Mom reminded me – haha).  And as you will see, Charlotte enjoyed her snuggles with mama and daddy, as much as her big sister.  The smile in mama’s arms – priceless.  I look forward to seeing little Miss Charlotte throughout her first year!
