Welcome Baby William - Skaneateles Session

Tara & Marty have been busy lately! They've been keeping up with their darling 2-year-old daughter, renovating a new house, and a move all in preparation to welcome baby William to their expanding family. I had the pleasure of shooting in their new home where there was lots of great light and big sis, Dawson, felt comfortable. I often get asked if I have a studio and I have to explain that I do all of my sessions on location because I like to incorporate meaningful elements from my subjects and that is only accomplished by having my subjects choose the settings. In this case, we spent almost the entire time in the sun-washed and simple master bedroom. I am just delighted at how this lifestyle shoot turned out--we saw the total range of emotions from both kiddos and I loved capturing all the tears, curiosity, frustrations, sweetness, and love!
