CLIENT RAVES & REVIEWS FROM SESSIONS

UPSTATE NY NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER, MOM WITH BIG SISTER HOLDING HER LITTLE SISTER

“ Hali was able to capture us so naturally, nothing felt forced or posed. She was able to capture the real us, our love for each other and individual personalities shined through every picture. She has a real talent capturing natural, candid family moments. Thank you again for giving us these special moments we can look back in for years to come!" ~Adriana

UPSTATE NY FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER, FAMILY LAUGHING TOGETHER

“Hali is such a gifted photographer. She has a special sense for the magic of family moments and she makes the session so much fun (I was surprised by how fun it was, and I was even expecting it to be fun!). She's also super sensitive to the personalities of the people she's photographing and she's able to capture those personalities in her photos, which I find is pretty rare. She has a sweetness and quiet concentration that allow you to feel like you're just out for an adventure, rather then being photographed. Hali shot some amazing pictures of my family--I know I'm going to treasure them for a long time to come, as a reminder of what life is like right now. Thank you so much, Hali!” ~Jess

 

COOPERSTOWN NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER, MAMA KISSING HER BABIES

“It can be challenging finding a photographer to capture special moments with your family, at least it was for my family. After experimenting with various photographers and left unhappy it was very exciting to meet Hali. My family and I loved working with her. Our toddler warmed right up to Hali and she took such natural photos with nothing being staged. After booking our first shoot with her and getting such amazing results, we could not wait for her to do our newborn shoot. When our youngest was born Hali came to our home and captured intimate moments with our newborn and did not pressure us to rush or stay on a time limit. She knows how to work with natural lighting and taking photos from the best angel, so all photos are beautifully flattering. These are photos I will cherish forever and am so grateful to have had Hali apart of such an important time in our lives. Her photos decorate our walls for all to see and we cannot wait to continue having her capture our growing family.” ~Michelle

ONEONTA NY FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER, FAMILY CUDDLING ON THEIR BED

“I can't say enough good things about Sweetliv Photography! My family has had the pleasure of having Hali capturing beautiful moments in our family for the past year, beginning with the birth of our daughter. The pictures Hali captured shortly after giving birth to my daughter, are by far my favorites. They are real, they are sweet and they are honest. I wish I had done this with my son when he was born. Hali's photography skills are amazing and I would highly, highly recommend them to everyone. What sets Hali apart, in my opinion, is that she captures life as it happens. It's not staged. It is simply real life happening. I get emotional typing this because when I look back at all of the photos she did (a first year family package), she captured my babies growing up. Taking pictures of our family is no easy task, as my son is shy and tends to not cooperate. Hali gave us some wonderful pointers ahead of time to help make the shoots go by smoothly though. She is patient, she is sweet and never made us feel rushed through any of our photo shoots. The sweetness and honesty of her pictures are undeniable. What Hali did for our family, by capturing these beautiful pictures, will be cherished forever." ~Amy
