Pulaski, NY Family Photography

Cameron is 6 months old!!! We celebrated with a beautiful sun filled outdoor family session and a few indoor shots as a bonus :) It was the most beautiful April evening and then sun was just amazing!! I remember when I first started enjoying photography as a hobby I would avoid the sun at all possible costs. I loved cloudy days and over cast, because I was scared of the sun....mainly, I didn't know how to use it!!! Now I crave it. I'm a sun chaser. When I have an outdoor session without sunshine it really bums me out. 

This is what I love to shoot.

Family, love, and sunshine.

Pulaski, NY One Year Session

Someone is turning one!!! We had so much fun at his Smash and Splash mini session! This entire session only took 30 minutes!!! We did a few birthday shots, let him smash a cupcake around, and finished up with a quick outdoor splash to clean up. The weather was gorgeous!! I absolutely loved the beautiful golden hour lighting and the way the water and bubbles reflected through the setting sun.
This whole session has me drooling!!!
His big brother joining in for splash time fun was just too sweet for words!!!

Emery. I can't say enough sweet things about her! I had so much fun watching her toddle around, babbling away, and using one little finger to lick frosting from her cake! She wasn't much interested in a full blown smash, but was more than happy to have a delicate taste!! I set up this pretty little backdrop for her after Mom sent me a photo of the tutu she couldn't wait to put her in! It all came together so perfectly.

We even got to spend some time outdoors. She wasn't too sure what to think of the grass on her feet, but it was almost 75 degrees, sunny, and mid afternoon, and we enjoyed the warm breeze while strolling around my property.

We also go her back into her Mama's wedding dress! It surely wasn't as easy as when she was a newborn, haha!

The very last photo in the series is a creative edit merging the two together for one beautiful keepsake!!

These two were so much fun for their spring mini session! Nora loved the tulips I got for her and Gracie was full of smiles!! They had a lot of fun in my kites and clouds setup :)

Little Jolie came to see me at just 8 days old. She was a tiny little peanut, who loved snuggling with her Mommy so, so much!! Once she fell asleep we tried not to disturb her and got as many different poses and looks as we could without moving her around too much, and it worked like a charm!!! Nobody disturbs a princess when they sleep!!!!

How sweet are her little feet!!!

CNY and NNY/ Pulaski, NY Newborn and Family Photography| Where have I been!?

I am so behind on my blogging! I've been so busy with this brand new year, that it is already closing in on April, and I am preparing for Spring and Summer months!!! I decided to post an overview of the last few sessions with a selection of favorites, just to help me get back into the habit of blogging!!! You can always visit my Rae of Life Photography page on Facebook to see more, and please feel free to follow me on Instagram!!!

So what's been happening since January? Well, newborns, newborns, newborns, and ohhhhh, more newborns!!!

What sets me apart from other newborn photographers in the area, is that I love my work to be dynamic and unique. My consistency comes in well rounded sessions, with wonderfully lit images, sharpness, and creativity. I prefer to make each session unique, colorful, and different!!! I want my work to reflect BOTH my vision and yours!!! Take a look at the sweethearts below. I average 1-2 newborns per week, and the 10 babies below were from end of January through early March. I have so many more on the way, and can't wait to incorporate some amazing spring and summer themes!!
 

 

 

I've also been busy celebrating milestone sessions!!! . Milestones included 3 month, 6 month to 9 month (sitting up stages!) and of course, one year cake smash sessions! (or no cake, whatever you like!)

Here are some recent milestone images!!

Stay tuned for an upcoming blog post of a sweet tea party themed cake smash!

 

And just in the last couple of weeks I have wrapped up some amazingly sweet maternity sessions, and their little ones will be on the way in just a few short weeks! When I finalize their editing, check back to see just how beautiful these mamas are!!
