Syracuse Professional Newborn and Family Photography

Welcome to my Newborn, Family and Portrait Photography album.  I am a professional wedding, family, newborn and studio photographer in Syracuse, NY but often travel to Skaneateles, Fayetteville, Oswego and the Adirondacks. I am a Syracuse native who absolutely loves to photograph families and their children. One of the things I love most about children is that they remind us of the most important things in life.

As a photographer, I strive to capture the kind if images that hold emotion and evoke memories … Often children will dictate what kind of experience our portrait session will be and that is great. Allowing children to be and express themselves will go a long way in capturing their true essence. Of course, this is all within reason. We do need to have some control over the session or the children may end up simply sticking their tongue out the entire time! LOL…

I have a photography studio located in downtown Syracuse (with off street parking) if your are interested in the aesthetic of a studio portrait, but often suggest we shoot in the client’s home or outdoors. Living and photographing in Syracuse, I am blessed with so many beautiful locations around the Upstate NY area.  It is my belief that children are most real, pure and honest when they are outdoors, exploring rather than the confined walls of a studio  and thus the ability to capture children’s portrait in their most authentic state is best achieved by photographing in a families home or somewhere outdoors.  The only time I usually suggest photographing in the home or studio is if you are interested in booking a newborn photography session in Syracuse.

Many people in Syracuse are interested in a portrait photography session within their home and wonder if that is possible?? YES!  I often photograph in a clients home… particularly during the winter months.  In addition, some people like to combine their photography session with both inside and outdoor shot – I think that is an excellent idea and often find a beautiful location in Syracuse to photograph in addition to the home. This is particularly true when photographing newborns.

After the shoot, I will provide you with your own private web page containing images from our photography session. You will have the option to order prints directly from a private website and have the photographs delivered to your door. I do however suggest that you consider going through me directly if you are looking to have images 8×10 or larger portrait printed. I will prepare the photographs for printing large and will go over the image with greater detail.

I can also put together a photo book of your family, maternity or newborn photography session.. . Please inquire about pricing.

I consider it an honor to photograph people. I can think of no other service more lasting, special and sacred, than capturing the people and moments in our lives. Photographs can and do, often outlive us. Photographs provide us an opportunity to remember the special moments,people and places in our lives.  Capturing the wonderful people in our lives through photography, can help us remember the beautiful moments in our lives.  Whether it is a maternity photography, newborn photography or family photography session… I strive to make sure all my clients are not only happy but thrilled with the photography package and photographs I supply to them.
