welcome to

Josnelly and her little family met me in downtown Glens Falls on a beautiful spring day. We walked in the sunshine, hung out at Glens Falls City Park and then settled on a few beautiful locations that show the urban beauty of our little city. This little man was so curious about everything around him. […]

When I get the opportunity to photograph a family in my hometown, Bolton Landing, I always feel so honored. Add in that this family of amazing business owners (Cate of Cate’s Italian Garden (psst… check out their website for some of my food photography) and Ed of The Chateau on the Lake) and my teens’ favorite teacher and we have the making of an amazing family session.

Foy Family | YM PHOTOGRAPHY | Bolton Landing Family Reunion Portrait Photographer

I have lots of families that have been with me since I started my business. This one just happens to have been with me for as long as I can remember since we were neighbors and I graduated high school with one of the daughters. It’s always a delight when I can capture a family I love. It’s even better when I can capture them during a family reunion over the holidays. Large family portraits are some of my favorites for the opportunity to capture multiple generations and getting to do them in my hometown of Bolton Landing on Lake George makes it even better!

Purrott Family Session | Saratoga Springs Family Photographer

The Tyler family stopped by for our nautical themed mini portrait sessions in Lake George, NY. While we couldn’t get on the beach, we chose a spot nearby for some classic family portraits. Why was mom laughing above? Because this little one did not want Daddy kissing Mommy! So cute! www.ymphotography.com | YM Photography | […]
