welcome

This family is near and dear to my heart – I’ve documented them a few times the first time being when their little man was 6 months old (Jack and his dad wore Buffalo Bills hats for part of the session so we were all immediate friends!).   there is nothing more amazing than watching families […]

enjoy a preview of the M Family’s Saratoga Springs Family Session!
