2013 was a very busy year for Susan Knott Photography. It seems that, if we weren't taking the photos, we were editing them or talking with clients about their upcoming session or wedding event! Lots of fun and we've met so many great friends! Thank you for a great year!
Here are some of some of our favorite photos throughout the year. We had some of the best experiences, where it was Wedding Photography, Family Portraits, Senior Portraits, Maternity photo sessions, or what follows soon after...Newborn photos!
Have a safe and Happy New Year!
Susan & Jon
We photographed the Rivers family in East Greenbush this summer, and the star of the show was baby Aliah!
Marina & James were married in St. Anthony's church in downtown Schenectady, and celebrated at the Stockade Inn. They paused for a few moments for a photo in their honeymoon suite, before they kicked us out!!
Claire & Zach become parents this year to Emmett. Emmett invited us in, shortly after he was born to take this first official family portrait!
We caught Abby with such a cute smile, as we were preparing for her family portrait session in Congress Park, Saratoga, NY
Definitely a first for us! A double wedding of two beautiful sisters--Chris, (right) lives locally and Tiffany from Puerto Rico. The timing couldn't have been better this summer. Chris and Hextor were getting married, and rather than just attend, Tiffany and Javier decided to tie the knot too and make it an extra special family occasion at Treviso, in the Italian American Community Center.
Doesn't Vinnie look comfortable? Parents, Diana & TJ wanted to incorporate this clay pot in the photo somehow. So we figured it out--we put him IN it!
Christina & Vinnie's family and friends really threw them a fun wedding celebration at Mallozzi's! They all paused for a moment for this shot from the DJ platform.
Todd and Amy were expecting Cooper in September, so toward the end of summer we traveled to Yaddo Gardens in Saratoga for a maternity session.
Tricia & Dan were married this fall at an intimate family and friend get together along the Mohawk River at Dan's parents' house. Tricia's attendants couldn't wait to shower them with rose petals!

She shoots a .22 caliber target rifle, as well as an air rifle and participated in a recent Junior Olympics. While she didn't want the rifle in her senior photos, it was important to her to have it as part of her photo session.
