From Engagement to Wedding to a family of 5!!! This is our goal. It's ridiculously special to watch your family grow. I love our relationship. We CARE so much about photographing your family. The best. The best way we can. 

Jackson Newborn | NorthGlow Photography

This family is quiet and fun and caring. Some of the best. Beautiful couple. I knew they would be amazing parents. 

Jackson Newborn | NorthGlow Photography

Sweet and Simple | Rochester, NY Newborn Photographer

This new Mama is in love. She is so lucky to have a beautiful big sister helper. This joined family is perfect together. I loved getting to celebrate their newest little love. She was perfection. 

Simple and Sweet | NorthGlow Photography

Little girl babies are so dainty. I love watching the session evolve as the parents pick out colors and details to use in the photos. Of course it has my style. BUT I think it is overwhelmingly YOUR style.

Let's get your session on the books- start here!

Daddy and Me

This daddy received this session as a gift! I realize many Dad's don't love a photo session. They don't like wake up in the morning thinking, "Today, I really feel like chasing my children around in an outfit I would never wear that my wife picked out, being told where to stand and allow my child to behave like a maniac." Yikes! Yes! It can feel that way. My goal and (one of this years resolution plans) is to steer away from that! 

Daddy and Me | NorthGlow Photography

I want there to be less pressure. I don't know if dad (or mom) will ever truly love a photo session. BUT I know you love the results! I also know this dad is a super hero! He got all these handsome boys dressed and here to the studio. They had a blast and we were finished in about 25ish minutes. 

Daddy and Me | NorthGlow Photography

Good job Dad!

Let me kiss you boo boo | Rochester, NY Newborn Photographer

That is what she said?!?! This big sister is like, she needs her own reality show. She is darling and kind and tender. I know why. Her mommy and daddy are some of the funniest, but really kindest, most tender people I know. They care for people for a living. They have to be! (But I think they love it too!). 

Let me kiss you boo boo | NorthGlow Photography

Now they have TWO MORE BABIES! I'm not kidding when I say they make it look easy. I know it isn't of course. BUT they smile the whole time.

Big Little Brother | Rochester, NY Newborn Photographer

I mean?!?!? This big brother? He melts me. He was such a great little participator. These two are going to be best buds immediately. 

Big Little Brother | NorthGlow Photography

Little man slept like his whole session. And smiled. (Folks, this is not typical, he made it seem easy). 

Big Little Brother | NorthGlow Photography

I have been combing my antique spots for all sorts of new bins and accessories. I love, love this wagon. It was a favorite buy years ago. Now looking for new things. Fairly obsessive about this kind of thing.

Veyda | Rochester, NY Newborn Photographer

These gorgeous new little families! I'm like totally exhausted and thrilled at the same time! (and so are they!!). 

Veyda | NorthGlow Photography

The first baby is something amazing. These gorgeous new Mamas. Always questioning themselves, but doing amazing all at once. And really? Is there anything more handsome then a new dad holding his baby? I wouldn't let this man out of the house with that child. 

Veyda | NorthGlow Photography

I can't wait to spend the first year with this family. Email me?!?! I have a lot of special goodies for you if you do the first year. You will be so excited!

Moving Home to Iceland

This family came in to get some portraits from their temporary home in Rochester before moving back to their home in Iceland! 

Moving Home to Iceland | NorthGlow Photography

Their little lad was fairly exhausted! But honestly, it made him even cuter. If that is possible.

Moving Home to Iceland | NorthGlow Photography

He laughed only when tickled. And he would shake his head no if he didn't like something we were showing him to make him laugh. Ha! I loved it.

Gavin Newborn | Rochester, NY Newborn Photographer

Yessssss!!! They had more babies. (I think all their friends and family agree!). They make beautiful ones and I love getting to hang out with them. 

Gavin Newborn | NorthGlow Photography

I went to their home. And I love that. We walk around and find cute spots. We use your things. The kids hang out and relax. It really is a beautiful way to capture this. (Unless you love props, if you love props and lots of choices, you will prefer the studio). 

Gavin Newborn | NorthGlow Photography

This little brother is very loved. And I think he is fitting right in!

Double Trouble | Rochester, NY 1st Birthday Photographer | Cake Smash

Yes, you are seeing double. I find the universe hands me things in groups! It is twin week over here!

Double Trouble | NorthGlow Photography

It was such a beautiful day. We loved getting to be outside. I decided I might start offering you the service of having balloons for you here waiting? Do you like that idea? Ask if you want them! I can do it for you. It was fun. 

Double Trouble | NorthGlow Photography

This little family is a favorite. (I know. I think I have a lot of favorites I say that a lot. BUT I do). Can you believe I took big brother's newborn photos? I can't. Why in the world do these babies grow so quickly!

Double Trouble | NorthGlow Photography

Summer is booking up quickly- reserve your spot here!

Parker ONE

I will have to do a whole other post on Parker as he did his whole first year.

Parker ONE | NorthGlow Photography

BUT it was hard to wait. He reminds me so much of my Oscar!!!

Parker ONE | NorthGlow Photography

I loved that his mom found this onesie. These touches make things extra special.  I can not resist a bow tie...

Soon-to-be party of 4

Our new studio space is just about complete. This family was the first to have their session there with Paul!

Soon-to-be party of 4 | NorthGlow Photography

Mr. Handsome loved interacting with the camera. 3 year olds are never and I mean never easy. But when are they? He was so much fun!

Soon-to-be party of 4 | NorthGlow Photography

Don't fear coming to have portraits because you think your child would never behave. Not many do. We have lots of tricks up our sleeves!

Blake's Year One

You will never regret having spent the money on the whole first year. 

Blake's Year One | NorthGlow Photography

Put it on a credit card! (I wish I would have done that with my wedding photography…I'm not one to encourage debt, but it is something I would have spread out payment on in a heart beat for better photos!!! aaaahhh).

The Spencer Family

The studio is great. I have so many beautiful props for babies and I love it for maternity. But I really love coming to families homes for their sessions. I know lots of people don't think they're home is beautiful enough for a photo session. But I strongly disagree.

The Spencer Family | NorthGlow Photography

Your home is so many things. It's your pets, your kids bedrooms where they play. It's the view you look at all the time. It's your front door. It's really a window into the lives of you and your children when they're little.

The Spencer Family | NorthGlow Photography

Don't hesitate to have me come to your home. Part of my skill is finding beautiful spots. This family loves their view from their backyard, so that's where we spent most of our time. I love to be at candid moments with the families and the kids. Their dog stayed right with us the whole time. I did no wrangling, she just did what she did and it was perfect.

Five

There are so many different milestones.

Five | NorthGlow Photography

I think every family has things that are milestones to them.

Five | NorthGlow Photography

Five is a big one or whatever age you send your little one off to kindergarten.

Five | NorthGlow Photography

It is often the last time I'll see your Littles for a while, as they start the dreaded school photos.

Five | NorthGlow Photography

It's kind of like your last little time with your baby before they turn into a big kid.

Nora | Rochester, NY Newborn Photography

I recently had the pleasure of photographing the sweetest little gal named Nora.

Her daddy bought a gift certificate for his pregnant wife for newborn photos. I have a feeling he is on her good side.

Nora | NorthGlow Photography

We like to be sure if there is an older sibling, that they feel special too!
