family session at m&d farm, westerlo, ny
What an incredibly cool family… We did a super fun family session a couple of years ago with Lori, Nate and their adorable baby girl Madi in downtown Albany–here’s the blog post for that one. We had a great shoot, and I’ve thought of these guys often. Fast forward two years–Madi is now three, and she has a new little brother named Jacob. I was pumped when I got the call from Nate saying it was time for an update, and immediately started thinking of location ideas. It can be tricky to schedule shoots during foliage season, so I was honestly kind of nervous when I called Nate one morning to suggest that we meet at M&D Farm in Westerlo…later that same day. Oops! Who would even ask parents of two small children to pull everything together in like six hours. Well, somehow they managed it! (Thanks, guys!)
This was my first visit to M&D Farm–I’d seen a few photos and had heard it’s awesome from some photographer friends, so I was jazzed to try it out for myself. I’ll say this–the stories were true! First of all–the owners, Mario and Daniel, are fantastic. Showed me all around, and couldn’t have been more hospitable. The property has a ton of unique and very cool nooks and crannies and and beautiful wide open spaces, as well. When Lori & Nate and the kids showed up a few minutes later, I had a plan in mind–we took good advantage of this amazing location. Definitely can’t wait to shoot there again.
Hope you love these photos–let me know if you’d like to book a shoot for your family, too. And all the best to Lori & Nate and the kids! Hope to see you again soon.
