I am so excited to welcome the Burkes to the Baby's First Year plan! Lacie and Garrett's maternity session was so much fun and I can tell that they are going to be great parents and definitely one of my favorite clients. Any soon-to-be-mom who is willing to stand in the snow for portraits at thirty five weeks pregnant is going to be a whole lot of fun to work with!
I met Janet and Jimmy several years ago when I had a studio with another photographer, Autumn Nowey. We shot their engagement photos at Upper Onondaga Park in Syracuse. Jimmy seemed a little nervous at first, but we encouraged the couple to interact with each other and kinda forget we were there, and he loosened right up. We were happy with the final images we gave them, and it turns out, they were happy with them as well. When I opened HeartStrings, Janet contacted me about a maternity session. She said that Autumn and I captured the true personalities of her and Jimmy in a way that their wedding photographer had failed to do. What an awesome compliment! I was so excited to hear from her. Autumn and I remembered them fondly. One of the reasons I started HeartStrings was so that I could photograph children and families as they grow and change. Janet gave me my first opportunity to do just that.
