Three Year Old Session | Syracuse, NY
our dear sweet rainbow baby . . .
you're three now.
Every morning you ask Mama to cuddle you on the couch
with your Otis baby (stuffed goat) in one hand
and a cup of kefir in the other.
We watch robot videos together until sissy wakes up.
She is your bestest playmate and partner in crime.
And although you are very different from each other,
in many ways you're a lot like her, too.
I see her influence on you
in the way you empathize with others and show small
and yet breathtaking acts of kindness.
You're affectionate and joyful and so much fun!
That's not to say you aren't a mischief maker.
You like to do your own thing, even when you've been told no.
Then when you see me get upset,
you always ask me the same question
"are you happy Mama?"
And I always reply with the same answer
"I'm happy when you listen Finny."
But the truth is, I'm happy even when you don't.
I'm happy I get to teach you . . .
And to help you grow.
I'm happy I get to be your Mommy.
Even when you cannon ball onto the dog
and try to ride her like a horse.
Even when you dig through the recycling
and litter our home with trash
that you call "robots" and "airplanes".
Even when you scream to sleep with me at night
and when I finally cave and let you,
you scream to go back to your room.
Even with all the challenging bits,
that you are you!
"I like you just the way you are." -Mister Rogers

Magnolia Turns Eleven | Stone Quarry Hill Art Park | Cazenovia, NY
And just like that, our baby girl is 11.
One of my favorite things about her is
that she doesn’t care about superficial things.
She doesn’t care about looks or fashion or being popular.
What she cares about, is other people.
She’s the kindest soul I’ve ever known and
God only knows how I have the privilege of raising her.
My sweet Magnolia You were born good!
I strive every day to deserve you.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again,
I’d want to be your friend even if you weren’t my child. ❤️
Children's Session | Chittenango, NY
This session went so fast and smooth
because these kids are so fantastic!
The lighting was perfection just as I pulled up
so we quickly hustled them outside to catch that
gorgeous golden hour glow.
They were ON from minute one.
Although I do have to apologize to Mama
for making the kids say poop, butt and boogers, lol.
I play to my audience,
what can I say?
Making it work, haha.
Here is their sneak peek...
I was just thinking today...
Our lives are filled with so many moments.
We live each of them and they pass so swiftly.
How many events happen
where we can recall the exact moment in time?
On this day, at exactly 10:41 am
one decade ago
we held her in our arms for the very first time.
We had no idea yet, of her thoughtful ways
and her kind heart.
But in that moment,
and every one since,
she has been loved beyond measure.
This sweet little wild child is ONE already!!
She's an adorable ball of energy,
running all around.
And she absolutely loves her Mama!
I knew I wanted to do something different
for her one year session.
Something to suit her personality.
I think we pulled it off.
Here is her sneak peek...
The last time this sweet little girl had a milk bath
she was still in her Mama's tummy.
It is so crazy and bittersweet the way time passes so swiftly.
Here she is, one year already.
Joyful Ella with the biggest blue eyes!
I've been photographing her since she was a newborn. It's crazy how quickly the time slips away. Here's just a small look at Atticus' 3 year session from today.

Magnolia | Six and One Half
I don't know if you've heard, but getting three babies the same exact age, to all look at you at the same exact time, can be, uh...challenging, lol!
When they do though, well, the results are SUPER cute!! :)
Well hello there!
I love this family photo! And look how amazing Mom looks already after having three babies!
I can't believe how much they have changed in the few short months since their newborn session!
Look how sweet and happy those faces are. I love the anchor theme with the clothes!
Don't forget to "like" my Facebook to see more adorableness soon!
