Lauren

Ballston Spa Urban Session

Kim's words (mom): Hi Erin - just wanted to send you a quick note to truly thank you for all you did to make Lauren's Senior pics such an amazing experience. I know I've said it on social media and I've texted you - but I just feel like I need to continue to share with you what an impact you've had on Lauren. She continues looking at her images and finding new ones that she loves and she's received COUNTLESS texts from her friends (and even girls who are not her close friends) complimenting, wishing their session was as beautiful, or asking to copy her hair and makeup pointers. It's been an unbelievable boost in her self confidence! She had a FaceTime call while we were on vacation from a girl who Lauren says "is the prettiest girl in our grade" telling her how beautiful her shots were and was asking for advice on clothing choices and hair style for her own senior session. So, sure, while the photos speak for themselves, I wanted to share with you just how touched we are and how great my girl STILL feels!! (insert heart emojis). You're amazing!!...

The Cock 'n' Bull Restaurant, Arnold's Farm Fresh Produce - Galway

Rhonda's words (mom): I found Erin Malcolm through another friend that had her daughter's senior portrait taken with her. They were the best senior pictures that I ever saw, so I knew I had to sign up my daughter! She is an amazing and creative photographer. My daughter picked two close locations that were special to her and Erin worked her magic with the natural surroundings, flowers, and landscape. She is not your typical photographer. She takes both color and black and white and prefers a natural model with simple clothing lines to bring out the best in your portrait. Erin is a gem and is so easy to work with. My daughter's portrait is breathtaking with too many beautiful photos to choose from. I have recommended other seniors to go to Erin because I know they will obtain beautiful photographs that will capture their senior's memories perfectly. Don't go anywhere else!!



Cloe

The Rose Garden, Schenectady

Cloe's words: Easily the best experience with a photographer to date! Erin Malcolm Photography is energetic, super personable, and very talented at her craft. She has a magical way of capturing every moment perfectly. She goes above and beyond for all her clients to make sure everyone is comfortable and having the best experience possible. I can't say enough about how professional Erin Malcolm Photography is and the quality of work she provides. I was so pleased with my session and final photographs and I will treasure them forever. There just aren't enough words to possibly describe how stunning each and every photo that Erin snaps. I would never hesitate to recommend her to anyone who wants a true professional to create a customized photography experience. I simply cannot recommend Erin Malcolm Photography enough!!



Megan

Downtown Troy Urban Session

Tracey's words (mom): From the moment I spoke with Erin on the phone inquiring about her Senior portrait sessions, I was hooked. Not only because her senior packages were in line with my budget, but also because she is the kindest woman and her ideas are creative and captured my daughter's wishes perfectly.

Then when we met Erin in person, the afternoon of the photo shoot, we felt perfectly at ease and comfortable with Erin's plans for the shoot. Megan's photo shoot was in an urban setting with two outfit changes. I am still in awe with the outcome of the photos, and occasionally find myself perusing through all the images and reminiscing about that night. We had some great laughs and awesome memories.

I cannot wait to schedule my younger daughter's photo shoot with Erin in the summer of 2021.



Aidan

Waterford Urban Session, Waterford/Halfmoon School track

Heather's words (mom): I found Erin on Facebook from a friend that posted her daughters senior portraits a year ago. I knew I had to hire her for my son's senior portraits. I can't say enough about her. From the first contact, I felt confident that I was going to love my son's pictures. Erin took the time to ask a lot of questions to get to know him and what I would like. She spent even more time taking pictures ( a few outfit changes and two places for his session). She captured a side of Aidan we don't see very often and his love of being on the track. We well cherish our photos forever.

When a 17 year old leaves the session and says how cool you were - that is the ultimate compliment! My only regret is not meeting you years ago to capture Aidan growing up.



Grace

Downtown Troy Urban Session

Grace's words: Erin did my senior portraits a couple of weeks ago, and I could not have asked for a better experience! She works light in such a flattering way, and I am so pleased with how they all came out. I was on a tight schedule, but Erin answered my inquiry in a very timely manner and we figured out a vision from there. Budget was also a concern for my family, but unlike other photographers, Erin has a completely reasonable price and provides direct access to every photo taken, which was an incredible bonus. Thank you, Erin!! You made this shoot easy and memorable.



Lauren

Ballston Spa Urban Setting

Kim's words: I honestly can't say enough great things about Erin and my daughter's senior photo session with her. From the sweet texts prior to the shoot, to finalize outfit choices, to final product. Erin is brilliant as what she does; she commands her sessions in such a remarkable way and made my daughter feel totally at ease. The session was more of an experience and she truly made her feel so beautiful. We could not have been happier with the results and a year later still get told that her photos are some of the best senior portraits people have ever seen! I couldn't agree more! Hands down best photographer around!



Jimmy

Zim Smith Trail, Round Lake baseball field

Nikki's words (mom): We have known Erin for several years. She is a genuine, caring person. Her personality can put anyone at ease. When choosing a professional to do pictures for my sons, I had no doubt in calling Erin. I have always enjoyed looking at her website and photos. Her 'art' with the camera has always put me in awe! It amazes me at how she can capture such emotions/feelings with just one photo. I am so thankful and grateful to have her take senior pictures for both of my boys. I love that she was able to make them feel so comfortable, which enabled her to capture their true personalities. I am more than thrilled to have these memories!



Jonathan

Shen Campus, Commons Basketball Courts

Karen's words (mom): We have known Erin Malcolm for years and her reputation as a sensational photographer has only grown during this time. So when it came to choosing someone to take our son's senior pictures, there was only one choice.

Coming to Erin's home was a treat, as she had done her "HW" with phone calls, questions, e-mails and simply outlined what to expect. She took additional notes on what we were looking for too. At the day of the photo shoot, our son didn't know what to expect, but Erin made him feel unbelievably comfortable. The pictures are natural, wonderful and something we will always treasure. Love her blog and personal touches. Highly recommend Erin Malcolm for weddings, family photos and much more! Thanks Erin!!



Caroline

Saratoga Springs, Natural Settings

Lisa's words (mom): Erin photographed our daughter for her senior pictures this summer. She was absolutely wonderful. From the minute we met her, Erin spent all of her energy ensuring that our senior photos were impeccable. She went above and beyond to ensure that we were happy. Erin arrived thoughtfully prepared, excited and energetic, and willing to be flexible with locations. She genuinely loves what she does and that is reflected in the gorgeous finished photos. We will surely have her photograph many more family memories in the future (heart emoji).



Peyton

Burnt Hills home, Natural Settings

Natalie's words (mom): Our experience with Erin has been nothing short of fantastic! She came to our house weeks prior to our daughter's Senior Session to scout the best locations and lighting scenarios on our property. She was very prepared and had all the right equipment. Her professional but fun manner put my daughter at ease right away. Erin was very precise with the natural lighting and knew which poses would bring out the best features for the photos. Erin did an outstanding job and I highly recommend her!



Elise

Sagamore Resort, Natural Settings

Diane's words (mom): Erin did a wonderful job capturing my daughter's senior photos! We did not have any specific agenda in mind with poses and such, and Erin stepped right in and took the lead with her vision. She set up each pose carefully with the background, lighting and all the other variables that go into the making of beautiful photos. Despite all the changing of wardrobes that my daughter did and traipsing around the grounds up at Lake George, Erin was on cue and ready to go!

Jeff assisted with the lighting that day and did a phenomenal job. His expertise can be seen throughout as well. Needless to say, every photo came out beautifully, and we were so pleased with the entire experience. Erin was a pleasure to work with and made the entire process seamless. I would highly recommend her for any type of photography.



Alex

Clifton Park Natural Settings

Alex' words: Erin did my senior photos and they came out AMAZING. She did a very good job with making sure the lighting was good and took me a wonderful location to do photos! While taking professional photos, she also was very open to letting me have fun with it too! Something I greatly appreciate as well as photos I will cherish for a long time to come. She's a wonderful woman and a fantastic photographer!!



Joelie

Lakeside Farms Natural Setting

Joelie's words: I had an absolutely excellent experience with Erin Malcolm Photography. Erin went to my location a few days before the photos to look for the best spots to take pictures, and found great locations on the property. I absolutely love the colorful backgrounds she suggested.

As someone who doesn't photograph well, I am so thankful that Erin really took the time to get the perfect shot and angle, and I am so happy with the result. I would recommend Erin to everybody!



Sean

Clifton Commons Formal Yearbook Portrait

Kelly's words (mom): I hired Erin to do my son's senior pictures and she was fantastic! She had a questionnaire asking about his interests and hobbies as a way to get to know him. A senior portrait was not exactly the most comfortable thing for him, but she put him right at ease. I thought we would be lucky if she got one or two good shots - turned out I had many pictures to choose from. I highly recommend Erin! She was great to work with and the pictures were beautiful!



Braden

Barney Rd., Natural Setting

Kathleen's words (mom): Recently had my sons Senior portraits done with Erin Malcolm Photography. I appreciated her attention to detail even before the photo shoot to get to know my son and his personality in order to best capture who he is during the session. Then the pictures are amazing. Thrilled with the final product!! Thank you Erin!



Anna

Pryun House, Natural Setting

Amanda's words (mom): Erin was able to capture my daughter's personality through her beautiful photography. Would recommend her to all!



Marcus

Congress Park, Natural Setting

Karen's words (mom): I was very impressed with Erin. My son needed senior pictures for his yearbook and Erin worked us into her schedule. She met us at Congress Park and walked around and got to know my son while taking amazing pictures of him. She was very professional and yet made my son feel very comfortable. His smile sparkled in his pictures. She provided excellent service. I would recommend her for any event. She has the ability to capture awesome poses and create them in a stress-free environment.



Ang

Downtown Troy Urban Session

Angies' words: My session with Erin couldn't have gone any better. Personally I don't think I'm very photogenic, but Erin's energy and passion made the photo session very natural and easy-going. I really enjoyed taking my senior pictures with her and felt very comfortable at the same time! I would 100% recommend getting your senior portraits with her as they were, hands down, my favorite pictures I've taken in a long time!



Vinny

Clifton Park Natural Setting

Terri's words (mom): Thank you, Erin! I couldn't be any happier with the pictures. Erin did my son's senior photos. She worked so well with him (which is not always easy). She was very patient and was able to get amazing shots.

I would highly recommend Erin Malcolm Photography!
