Potsdam Based Photographer: Natalie’s Studio| Newborn Photography

Wow what an adorable baby girl!  I just love all her hair!!!  She is so sweet.  And I really love the color palette that the family chose of purples, blues and golds.  (Those are my personal favorite colors!)  Also, her mom incorporated the headpiece that she wore on her wedding day.  I love personal touches like that.  And her older sister did such a great job holding her and getting some sweet sisterly images. 

Don’t forget to check out the custom collage at the end of blog post.  I think it came out great. 

Enjoy!

What a sweet little guy!  This little boy was just 11 days new when he came into the studio and he did a fantastic job.  He slept well and we got some fantastic images.  The family chose a blue and brown color pallette.   I just love that combination!  And his photos will match wonderfully with his new nursery. 

Enjoy!

Hollywood Inspired Studio and Winter Session {Jeni} http://www.nataliewstudio.com/blog/2018/3/hollywood-inspired-studio-and-winter-session-jeni Hollywood Inspired Studio and Winter Session {Jeni}

Potsdam Based Photographer: Natalie’s Studio | Beauty

What a creative session for Jeni!  I was so excited when Jeni came to me with her vision for the photo session.  During the consultation Jeni, her mom and I chatted about what persona she wanted to portray.  Jeni is a local college student and had just gotten this gorgeous red dress.  She wanted to show of the dress and just do a photo shoot for fun.  (Which I think is always a good idea!  So often we stop photos after senior portraits and don’t get anything until our weddings.  But what about that time in between?  I digress…)  Anyhow, Jeni really loves classic Hollywood so we decided on that kind of a style to show of the dress and give Jeni a timeless set of images for this wonderful time in life.

We also knew the session would be during “snow season” in the north country.  So we planned…if the weather cooperated… to do a red coat look for snowy winter photos.  We couldn’t have ordered better snow!!!! I was so excited.  The best kind of snow to photograph is “wet snow”.  When the temperature is hovering just below freezing the snow is really wet and results in giant fluffy flakes (as opposed to the tiny icy ones).  These big snowflakes show up perfectly in photographs.  The only downside is your model will be soaking wet in about 30 minutes…including their hair.  My advice, do it last and have a hood on a jacket to save the hair for a bit.  Or have the hair in an up-do or get an umbrella if that works with your look.  But definitely do it! It is so much fun and the results are stunning.

The Hollywood portion of the session was done in my local Potsdam photography studio.  I had never done this style of lighting and shooting before, but after a bit of research on technique I was super excited.  The idea is to use harsh butterfly lighting to mimic stage lights.  Traditionally a Fresnel lens is used, but if you don’t have one of those you can use a 20-degree or 30-degree grid on your light.  I did a combination of the 20 degree grid or a 12x12 soft box on a boom arm with or without fill reflectors depending on the amount of shadow I wanted in the shot.  It was so much fun!!! We put Etta James on a Pandora station and just had a blast creating these Hollywood images.  Jeni was a fantastic model and really created mood in the images.  We discovered the angle of the lights made it really hard for her to see me behind the camera so she had to act out the poses without seeing my instruction.  (Which is just me waving my hands and acting like a puppet a lot behind the camera anyhow. Lol)

It was absolutely a fantastic photography session and I am so happy to share it with you all.  Please be sure to go all the way to the bottom to see her album and feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Summer Field and Winter Wonderland Senior Photography Session {Keeley} http://www.nataliewstudio.com/blog/2018/3/summer-field-and-winter-wonderland-senior-photography-session-keeley Summer Field and Winter Wonderland Senior Photography Session {Keeley}

Potsdam Based Photographer: Natalie’s Studio| High School Seniors

What an amazing high school senior photography session for Keeley.  I was so excited to meet Keeley and be her photographer.  I had previously photographed her older sister and two older cousins.  Each of those session had been amazing, and I knew Keeley’s would be just as much fun. 

We met for her consultation and during our conversation we chatted about how much she loved hockey and winter sports.  She is a student at Northwood School in Lake Placid, which specializes winter sports.  So, although it was spring when we were chatting, I said we should really have two photo shoots and do both a winter and summer one for her!  She loved the idea.  We went ahead and started planning.

For Keeley’s summer session we started in the studio to capture beautiful headshots and some classy hockey images too.  I got to use my new white brick corner set, that went prefect with outfit.  And I am always a fan of the black on black images.  They are so timeless, and I love they way the turned out. 

After the studio we made a short trip down the road and used a field of timothy that I had found.  WOW!  Her outfit, her eyes, the soft natural light of the end of the day… EVERYTHING looked perfect in the image.  These are some of my favorites!  I was so excited that we got such a wonderful look for Keeley’s summer field photos.

Then, months later we did the winter portion of her photo shoot at the White Face Lodge in Lake Placid NY.  It was a grey day but that worked well for our photo shoot.  We got some woodsy photos and even some with falling snow.  But, my favorite were the images we created by the large wooden columns of the lodge.  The light fell perfect on her face and her green sweater brought out her eyes and the evergreens in the background.  They are simply stunning. 

Keeley is such a lovely and confident young lady!  It has been such a pleasure to be her senior photographer.  I know she will go far and I can’t wait to see what she does!  Good luck in all that you do Keeley!

Love,

Natalie’s Studio!

Generational Family Portraits http://www.nataliewstudio.com/blog/2018/2/generational-family-portraits Generational Family Portraits

Potsdam Based Photographer: Natalie’s Studio| Family Photos

I am so in love with these portraits for the Hostetter family.  I simply adore generational family sessions.  They are such an heirloom to cherish for years and a wonderful thing to pass on to each generation.  If you haven’t considered doing something like this, I highly recommend you do.  Luckily, all of the Hostetter family came to visit for the holidays so we were able to get everyone together and create these beautiful portraits.  Three generations of family!

But in the event that not everyone can physically be here we can create a composited family portrait.  Notice the white photos from this session, these are created by photographing each person separately and then compositing them together afterward.  The advantage is, we can photograph members of the family at different times.  Also, everyone looks their best, even all the young children can be smiling in the family portrait.

I am so happy we took the time to create these timeless family portraits for the Hostetter’s.  They are such a down to earth family and such a pleasure to be around.  I know Bob and Marcia will cherish theses images of their beautiful family for years and year.

Steam Punk, Old School and Tim Burton Unique Senior Photo Session {Meggan} http://www.nataliewstudio.com/blog/2017/12/steam-punk-old-school-and-tim-burton-unique-senior-photo-session-meggan Steam Punk, Old School and Tim Burton Unique Senior Photo Session {Meggan}

Potsdam Based Photographer: Natalie’s Studio| Seniors

I am very excited to share this photo shoot with all of you.  It is definitely one of the most unique sessions I’ve had and I am very proud of the way it turned out.  I am also very proud of Meggan and what a wonderful job she did; not only at the session but with all the curation and wardrobe planning she did. 

Meggan’s photo shoot is a really good example of how important a consultation is.  When Meggan and her mom came for the consult she and I hit it off right away.  We chatted about lots of ideas of things that she liked and how she likes to push the boundaries, but not go over them.  I felt like every idea Meggan and I talked about we could both see the same vision in our minds.  It was so much fun!  We wanted to illustrate the concept of how photography can personify you in ways you only dream of. 

Do you ever find when you are reading a good and you daydream of being another versions of yourself?  Maybe you’re an elf, a warrior, a spy or maybe you can tame dragons… I for one would love to ride a dragon.  You get to dream of these things but you never really get to feel part of them.  (Except maybe on Halloween)  But with Meggan’s photo shoot we brought those ideas to life.  And there is something truly amazing about seeing yourself on film in that persona.  The right wardrobe, the right set and perfect lighting can all bring it to life.  And then capture it on film and you will always have an amazing image of yourself; or your “other self”.

For Meggan’s session we curated 3 distinct sets.  First was stea punk.  Meggan did a fantastic job of creating a spot on steampunk outfit for the session.  All the details from the gears on her shoes, the feather in her hat and even her goggles really created a perfect steampunk look.  We used a sculpture at Clarkson University as our backdrop since it would give us the industrial look we were going for.  The I-beams, bolts and bricks lended perfectly to the set for our steampunk inspired part of our session.  I was particularly proud of the lighting because it was a bright sunny day and I needed  to darken the background to give the right mood.  But a powerful Einstein light equipped with a beauty dish on a boom arm allowed me  to overpower the sun and get the look I wanted right in camera.  It is her favorite part of the photo shoot and I can certainly see why.

We also wanted to highlight Meggan’s love of physics.  So we planned a old school room look for her to give a studious vibe.  I was able to find an old style school desk from a friend that we used for the session.  That coupled with a chalkboard background, old wood floor and some old books and we had ourselves an old room school look.  Meggan’s outfit  gave the look of a classic school teacher of days gone by.

Our last set was pretty exciting!  And certainly something I have never shot before.  Meggan wanted to have a Tim Burton inspired set.  And while we were looking for inspiration we came across a movie poster for  Snow White (illustrated in Tim Burton Style)  It provided the inspiration we needed and we started planning from there.  It evolved into a dark night set with rock walls and even a black curly tree Meggan made herself.  Meggan coupled her prom dress with some capes she had for the perfect look.  Then of course we had to add a fog machine to give it the final touch.  A blue gel to show off the fog and we were in business.  We had a blast on this set!  Although we did have to break several times to clear all the fog out of the studio.

I know this is a lengthy post but I was so excited about it.  I hope you enjoy the portraits.  And if you are ever looking for a unique photography experience just give us a call.

Winter Church Wedding in Massena NY {Sarah & Tom} http://www.nataliewstudio.com/blog/2017/12/winter-church-wedding-in-massena-ny-sarah-tom Winter Church Wedding in Massena NY

Potsdam Based Photographer: Natalie’s Studio| Full Wedding

What a lovely wedding for Sarah and Tom.  I feel so honored to have been part of this wedding day.  I have known the Elliott family a long time.  Sarah’s mother was my 2nd grade teacher and I used to babysit Sarah’s daughter Ashlin when I was a nanny at their church.  It was wonderful to be asked to be part of such a special event. 

Sarah and Tom were married in St. John’s Episcopal Church in Massena NY.  It was a beautiful full service, with lovely music and scripture.  Sarah chose deep blue and grey for a color palette for the wedding with accents of red and white.  It gave the wedding a perfect winter holiday feeling.  I loved the girls grey dresses with their soft blue capes to keep them warm in the cold.  Sarah even had snowflake accents in her jewelry and headpiece.  It all came together beautifully.

After family photos at the church Sarah and Tom went to The Lobster House for a dinner reception with all their family and friends.  It was a beautiful event.  Congratulations to Sarah and Tom!

Ridgeview Inn Fall Wedding in Lowville {Megan and Erik} http://www.nataliewstudio.com/blog/2017/11/ridgeview-inn-fall-wedding-in-lowville-megan-and-erik Ridgeview Inn Fall Wedding in Lowville {Megan and Erik}

Potsdam Based Photographer: Natalie’s Studio| Full Wedding

Megan and Erik had a beautiful wedding at the Ridgeview Inn in Lowville NY.  It is such a nice place to get married because they can help you with every part of the wedding.  You can stay at the Inn and get ready there.  They have a beautiful pond and grounds for the ceremony and the reception hall is stunning.  The food is great too!  All you need are decorations (just call Helen for that) and you’re all set. 

And what a perfect time of year; it was beautiful out.  It was a perfect temperature and a perfect day for Megan and Erik.  Megan chose an amazing color palette to go with the fall for her wedding.  She mixed deep reds, plum purples and navy blues to create a deep jewel tone autumn inspired wedding look that was to die for!  I LOVED it.  And the flowers by Florals by Vinnie were exceptional!  The colors looked perfect against the tan or plum dresses of the bridesmaids. 

Megan and Erik are so sweet and such a pleasure to be around.  You can tell they genuinely just want to spend time with each other. If no one else was there they would be perfectly content.  I love Erik’s sense of humor.  He is easy to get to know and fun.  He wears his heart on his sleeve and when the two are together it is magic because you can just feel how committed they are to each other.  Megan is a beautiful person, full of style and sweetness!  She is strong and fun and I love her attitude and her love of life.

I am so glad I was able to be part of their wedding day.  I wish you two the very best in all that you do and a long and happy marriage.

Potsdam Based Photographer: Natalie’s Studio| High School Seniors

What a beautiful photo session for Grace!  We had such a great time and got a great variety of looks at her photo shoot.  We started in the studio with some blue, pink and yellow backdrops that really highlighted Grace’s gorgeous blonde hair and bright blue eyes.  I love the soft pinks and how they complement Graces’ complexion and how the blue background brings out her eyes. 

Then we went to the park in Potsdam to get a natural outdoor look for her portraits.  She had such cute dresses and jewelry to wear.   I really loved her style.  We captured lovely soft outdoor portraits that showed of the water, the soft pink sky and even the radiant golden yellow leaves of the trees.  I think we all had a great time and Grace’s senior photos came out beautiful!

Senior Photos of a Sports Star for Potsdam High School http://www.nataliewstudio.com/blog/2017/10/senior-photos-for-a-sports-star-for-potsdam-high-school Senior Photos of a Sports Star for Potsdam High School

Potsdam Based Photographer: Natalie’s Studio| High School Seniors

What a great photo shoot for Makenzie from Potsdam High School.  Makenzie loves sports and is active in soccer, hockey and softball.  So we did a special senior session to really let her athletic talents shine.  Being from Potsdam High School, we used orange and blue lights to go with the school colors.  And we did several of the dynamic sports portraits to give us some intensity.  (I like to call them Gatorade shots because with the fake sweat and special lighting they look like a Gatorade commercial!)  We even hit a bag of baby powder in the studio to create an epic softball portrait for her.  And then I made several custom collages to bring it all together.  Take a look and tell me what you think.

For a bit more of a softer side we did several studio portraits for Makenzie.  My favorites are the green background series because of how they show off her beautiful eyes.  Makenzie’s natural look created beautiful portraits for her and her family to enjoy.  We ended her senior session by the water at Cole’s Creek State Park to get some outdoor portraits and even a sunset.  Makenzie chose one of our VIP collections that included a family session at the end of her senior photos.  I always love that idea because it is a great time to get a beautiful family portrait. 

I hope you all enjoy all the photography. If you need anything at all don’t hesitate to contact me.  Remember 50 comments on the blog and she will win a free framed 8x10, 100 comments and she will win a free 11x14 framed print.

We had an AMAZING high school senior photo session tonight with Grace!  She started at the studio and we got 4 different looks that complemented her golden blonde hair and beautiful blue eyes.  Then we went the the park and did some beautiful outdoor images too.  The colors of the leaves made for a beautiful background for her senior photos.  We got a sunset and some awesome reflections in the water.  We all had a blast!

Fall Jewel Colored Wedding in Lowville http://www.nataliewstudio.com/blog/2017/10/fall-jewel-colored-wedding-in-lowville Fall Jewel Colored Wedding in Lowville

Potsdam Based Photographer: Natalie’s Studio| Wedding Sneak Peek

What a beautiful wedding for Megan and Erik!  This one was a little bitter sweet for me because it is one of the last weddings I will be photographing for a while.  Those who know me and follow me, know that Matt and I had our first child May of 2016.  And as I watch him grow… and sooooo  quickly …I know that I need to take a little extra time to be with him (and hopefully more little ones) over the next few years.  But don’t worry, I won’t be completely gone.  I will still be creating portraits for families, newborns and high schools seniors but will just be taking a wedding break for the next two years. 

But want a wonderful couple to “end” with.  Megan and Erik are just so sweet and a pleasure to be around.  I love how fun and funny Erik can be.  He wears his heart on his sleeve and when the two are together it is magic.  Megan is a beautiful person.  Full of style and sweetness!  I love her attitude and her love of life.

Megan chose an amazing color palette for the wedding.  She mixed deep reds, plum purples and navy blues to create a deep jewel tone autumn inspired wedding look that was to die for!  I LOVED it.  And the flowers by Florals by Vinnie were exceptional!

Heather and the staff at Ridgeview Inn were… as always… a pleasure to work with.  It is one of my favorite venues in the Lowville area.  And Helen from R&H Creations did a fantastic job with the décor.  She is simply the best in the area!

Well without further ado, here is the sneak peek of the wedding.  Stay tuned for the full wedding coming soon.

Retro Vintage Rustic Wedding in Chaumont NY {Shana & Mike} http://www.nataliewstudio.com/blog/2017/10/retro-vintage-rustic-wedding-in-chaumont-ny Retro Vintage Rustic Wedding in Chaumont NY {Shana & Mike}

Potsdam Based Photographer: Natalie’s Studio| Full Wedding  

What a beautiful and intimate wedding for Shana and Mike!  Their wedding was at Shana’s father’s home on the water in Chaumont NY.  Shana and Mike exchanged their vows on the deck overlooking the water.  Their peaceful home provided a casual environment for family and friends to witness their union.  And everyone took part in a fun celebration after their ceremony. 

Shana chose rose gold, pinks and greys as a color pallet for the wedding and it looked beautiful!  The girl’s rosy pink lace dresses went perfectly with the boy’s grey tuxes.  And Shana’s dress was a beautiful champagne lace.  Shana’s flowers were wooden!  I love that idea because then you get to keep them after the wedding.  And Mike’s bountineer had leaves that were pages from a book to give it a vintage flare. 

There were several highlights to their wedding celebration; one was the addition of the VW bus “Penny” from Snapshots photo booth.  While in the planning process Shana and Mike expressed that they wanted a laid back atmosphere for everyone to have a good time.  And that is exactly how it all turned out.  They served craft beers, had a live band and a photo booth.  But not just any photo booth; “Penny” (that’s her name) is a retro VW bus that has been outfitted by Snapshots photo booth company to be a vintage photo booth!  She comes complete with props in the trunk and is beautifully decorated to match the event.  Not only did “Penny” provide tons of entertainment, she also gave us a great background for portraits that matched Shana and Mikes retro fun style perfectly.  The craft beers also became a prop for our bridal party photos since Shana and Mike had gifted their friends customized mugs.  So we had a lot of cheers and fun while taking the bridal party photos. 

Shana’s dad, being very musically inclined serenaded her with a special song at the reception.  And later that night Mike surprised her with a drum solo too.  It was such a FUN day.  Everyone was just having a fantastic time and enjoying the live music, good beer and great company.  Congratulations to Shana and Mike!

We wanted to make sure Mike has something personal he could add to the portraits as well.  So we had a special session with his Harley Davidson at the end of the night.  We got some beautiful night motorcycle photos that I hope Mike really loves.

Potsdam Based Photographer: Natalie’s Studio| Full Wedding

This a continuation post for Freddy and Alex’s wedding on Cherry Island.  If you didn’t see Part 1 you can view it at http://www.nataliewstudio.com/blog/2017/9/eclectic-vintage-wedding-at-casa-blanca-alex-bay

Freddy and Alex had a fantastic wedding at the Victorian house Casa Blanca on Cherry Island. Freddy and Alex married their two styles (Freddy very eclectic and Alex simple and clean), with their wedding décor choices.  The burgundy’s, soft greens, whites and purples looked fantastic.  Kathleen Murphy of Primrose Hill created Freddy and Mariana’s bouquets of locally grown wildflowers.  And the addition of the vintage details at Casa Blanca added to Freddy’s unique and quirky style.  It all came together beautifully!

 Freddy and Alex are a team.  They fit like and hand and a glove and truly bring out the very best in each other.  And their family and friends mirrored these sentiments with all the love, support and speeches on their wedding day.  Freddy’s sister, Mariana and Alex’s twin brother Greg made up their bridal party.  They had a sentimental and heartfelt ceremony that merged the diverse backgrounds of each family.  Alex, being a poet, had exquisite vows that were funny, honest and loving.  Freddy… well she made me cry… as she professed the true respect, love and commitment between them.   

The reception was wonderfully casual with a focus on honoring the couple, spending time with family and friends and enjoying the island.  Guest mingled around the island and  house enjoying the view or partaking in the fun of the photo booth (provided by DJ Lennox).  It was a perfect atmosphere.  Alex sung a special song for Freddy that was a true highlight of the reception.  And Freddy and Alex included their siblings in the special dances.  There aren’t enough words to describe how wonderful this couple is.  Every time I look at the photos and think of their wedding day my heart is filled with love and gratitude that I get to be part of such a special day in their lives.   I am so glad I was able to be part of it.  Please enjoy these reception photos and feel free to leave a comment. Remember 50 comments on the blog and they win a free framed 8x10, 100 comments and they win a free 11x14 framed print.

Potsdam Based Photographer: Natalie’s Studio| Full Wedding 

Wow!  What a wonderful wedding!  If you didn’t read the sneak peek post for Freddy and Alex’s wedding you should check that one out at http://www.nataliewstudio.com/blog/2017/8/vintage-victorian-wedding-at-casa-blanca-on-cherry-island-in-alexandria-bay , there is a great narrative about this fantastic couple and their wonderful wedding day thats worth a read.

There are so many fantastic wedding photos from this wonderful day that I actually can’t fit them all in one blog post.  So here you will find the getting ready photos and most of the portraits.  And don’t forget to check out the slideshow and wedding album. 

Freddy looked stunning in her beautiful lace dress (from Dominique Levesque) and she was absolutely glowing.  Her good friend Emile did her makeup, which was exceptional.  Freddy wore an antique ivory rose necklace and matching earrings.  And her ring is a custom design with an heirloom diamond from Alex’s family.   The Casa Blanca on Cherry Island provided Victorian material that made a perfect backdrop for their special day.  And Freddy used vintage vases and bowls to hold arrangements of mums, succulents, dusty miller, baby’s breath, mini roses and more. 

Freddy and Alex both love literature.  Freddy is a librarian and archeologist and Alex is a poet and teaches English.  So when I saw the library at the Casa Blanca I knew we had to use that spot for portraits.  I love finding personal details I can weave into wedding day portraits and this one was perfect. Another detail was the “unique” gargoyles on the islands.  These semi-ghoulish statues were one of the things that Freddy just loved about Cherry Island.  She is drawn to unique and different things that tell a story.  So we made a special point to include them in the portraits. 

So take a look at all of the wonderful and unique wedding photos for Freddy and Alex and be sure to leave me a comment.  Remember 50 comments on the blog and they win a free framed 8x10, 100 comments and they win a free 11x14 framed print.  And don’t forget to check out Part 2 for the fun and the reception at http://www.nataliewstudio.com/blog/2017/9/eclectic-vintage-wedding-at-casa-blanca-alex-bay-part-2
