Headshots: Jennifer

Throughout the years, I’ve gotten to know Jennifer through documenting various weddings. She is always a smiling and bright presence in every room! As a bridesmaid or a wedding guest, she brings a positivity and enthusiasm to the day that lifts everyone in her orbit. It’s a rare trait and one that immediately stands out. I’m thrilled that I finally was able to get her to myself in the studio! She is incredible…kind, beautiful, fun…and she glows from the inside out! We had a great team on this one, Alyssa Aiello brought her insanely talented makeup skills to the shoot and Lizzy Esposito was on hair. They created a romantic and beautiful look that is perfect for Jen’s sunny disposition and stunning smile!

Lots of love for this beauty!

Check out these talented ladies who make me look good:

Espo & Co Salon

If you haven’t already heard, let me be the first to share! There is a brand new, light-filled salon in Utica, and, you guys…it is BEAUTIFUL. Airy, minimal, and super modern, along with thoughtful decor, Espo & Co Salon is a calming, elegant space. Lizz Esposito, the owner, has thought of everything, the natural light in this space is unbelievable! It’s a true reflection of her bright disposition and warm personality. This space is perfect for bridal parties to get their hair and makeup on a wedding day!

I had the honor of taking some shots of the team and the new space! It’s so large and welcoming!

A few favorites…

The gorgeous and talented team…

All the best to this amazing squad!

February Headshots

We all took a little risk in February. For the entire month, I discounted my normal headshot rate for anyone who was willing to put themselves out there. Together, we let the fear go and created something special. To everyone who swallowed their embarrassment, arrived at a stranger’s business and offered vulnerability in front of my lens, I can’t thank you enough.

I assure you, none of us ever feels thin enough, good looking enough or young enough to feel fabulous in photos…but you showed up anyway and took a chance! Whether it was to get a new job, to freshen up the dating profile, or just to put forth a more polished presence on the Internet, everyone showed true beauty through their adventurous spirit and enthusiasm.

I am so grateful.

Thank you for trusting me with your perfect faces! A few faves…

Thank you to everyone who came into the studio!

Katie & Kris: Harts Hill Wedding

He met her at an ice cream stand. Kris noticed Katie’s breathtaking beauty immediately — her gorgeous red hair and contagious smile — but was shy to approach. The thing is, it’s hard not to notice Kris. He’s tall, handsome, with an equally mesmerizing smile that disarms you instantly. (And, those dimples…come on!) Ice cream stands bring love and happiness, so this was a perfect beginning. Over time, Kris became a regular at Katie’s ice cream shop. The rest, as they say, is history.

These two really wanted a fresh blanket of snow as a backdrop for wedding pictures, how wonderful that a couple of days before, more magic happened! We got some beautiful snow, and the temperatures stayed warm! A perfect day with wonderful people.

A few favorites…

Everyone was talking about this dress! The lace details on the sleeves and back were stunning…

Note the ice cream cones on her ring! How cool is that?!

So much happiness in one day! Thanks to Katie & Kris who make everything better just by being in the room. You are angels to work for and I appreciate your kindness, patience and warmth!

Everything went as smooth as could be, thanks to these lovely people…
