I saw this video and thought it’d be perfect for the blog. Much like this video explains, I believe in the mom-moments so much, I know that moms are often neglected in photos with their children – consider being photographed with your babies at various stages in their growing up lives – at one point it is what is remembered most. This is why beautiful professional portraits are so important to mark the passage of time…it is our legacy and what we leave our children. Our children leave us with so much more.
I love my clients especially when some of the first words after greeting me are this:
The canvases from our last session are some of our most prized possessions…we hung them prominently in our dining room – an area we use all the time…we love them so much.
They so get me! The purpose of my work is to create both timeless and joyful images that enhance my client’s lives, by capturing those in between moments that make life what it is – this is why I created Marmalade Photography. I absolutely love when my clients *get* it. It’s not about photographing just the stages (that’s really great and all) but it’s also about creating fun memories that happen to have beautiful photography associated with them.
So R & S, you made my week (probably year!) with your statement about how much our last session means to you and for this I thank you!! It was a pleasure to photograph you, your lovely girls and finally meet the newest member -he’s a handsome guy that made my heart melt (I swear it wasn’t just the heat!!) 🙂 Thank you for coming out this past weekend, for trusting me with your greatest treasures and for letting me come into your lives to hopefully bring added joy. Your beautiful family makes me smile.
Sneak peeks from this session:
and because I hinted at images from our last session being beautiful – let me include a couple favorites:
What could be better than a fantastic summer day? A fantastic summer day photographing some of the cutest kids this side of I-80! 🙂
Thanks to the O Family who were so very fun and up for anything, I love loved working with you! We got absolutely amazing shots at your session-so excited to present these sneak peeks.
It’s been a hectic few weeks here in Marmaland! The kids ending the school year and all the activities tied in with that plus a few reschedules because of the rain – it’s been something else trying to get anything done worth noting. As a busy parent (likely) yourself, you have got to agree that May is for the birds!
Amongst all the insanity I had a chance to (finally) meet the L Family. It was great fun visiting the waterfall with them. The kids were such fun little souls, even little N who was probably pretty close to bed time made it a happy time! Thank you to the L family for coming out to the studio and out for the waterfall session, I had a fantastic time hanging out with you all earlier this week.
On with the sneak peeks!
It’s no secret that I *love* quiet moments like this.
…and fun mom moments like this
…and being a mom of two little girls I never can resist a sweet image of daddy’s little girl with her favorite dad in the world!
It was a pleasure meeting you all – such a gorgeous gorgeous family!
Once again I am honored to be part of a the Blog Carousel with a group of super talented photographers from all over the world. This month’s entry is FRAMED. I have been so very busy with end of school year/beginning of summer activities and some unfinished client work and I had to dig WAY back in the archives for this entry.
Several years ago I had the privilege of photographing this couple and their sweet pup Moonie for their engagement session (and wedding). Just a week or so ago was the one year anniversary of Moonie’s passing away so I thought it would be fitting to place this entry into our FRAMED theme. This is an all time Marmalade favorite and I’m pleased to showcase it here:
I love love the way the tree branches frame them within the image. I couldn’t have created this amazing shot for a more amazing couple. LOVE everything about it.
Make sure you travel to the next blog and continue on this carousel ride. 🙂 Up next is my lovely & talented friend with her lovely photo entry into the carousel. Amanda Padgham, the photographer of choice for Pittsford, NY families and children
