Hudson Valley Newborn

You know what’s great about lifestyle photography? You don’t even have to leave your house. I come to you and you can include your animals, special moments in the nursery and the best part… you can stay comfortable in your own home!

Everyone meet Thomas! Thomas was just a few weeks old when I met him and he was on his best behavior! We cuddled him up with mommy and daddy in his gorgeous nursery and of course his big brother and sister, two Labradors, joined in on the fun- the dogs absolutely adore Tommy and will be the best protectors as he continues to grow.

Congratulations to Christina and Dave as you settle in as a family of four. Thank you for allowing me to capture this time!

Goshen, New York Family Session

I love when I get to photograph families and see them again and again. Building relationships with my clients is something that is very important to me!

Just as the weather was beginning to get a little colder, I met Kathy and her family at a park in Goshen, New York. We had a lot of rain a few days prior to the session but that did not stop us! Emma and Aubrey stayed warm by cuddling up with mommy and daddy and squishing together for a “family burrito” shot! We took a few pictures under the Evergreen trees and then we ran around and had fun in the field.

Hudson Valley Fresh 48

Teagan Jo

I LOVE Fresh 48 sessions. There’s always some magic in the room when you are adding a new member to the tribe, whether it is your first, third or fifth baby… it’s magic. People can’t help but stare and smile at the life before them. They’re soaking up the love and also giving all of their love.

Chelsy and Joe welcomed new baby Teagan Jo in late August and I was lucky enough to capture my good friend’s maternity session and now her Fresh 48. Callan quickly fell into role of big brother and did not hesitate to show off his yellow trucks and let them zoom around Teagan as she was sound asleep. He proudly held her and kept a huge grin on his face the entire time.

Congratulations to this new family of four!

Hudson Valley Cake Smash

Abram is ONE!

Growing up being best friends with Allie, I knew her sister and her whole family. When I heard that her sister, Becky was having her first baby I knew Allie would be over the moon! Lucky me- I got to meet Abram right before his first birthday! And let me tell you- he is such a cutie!

Mommy, daddy and Abram traveled from Massachusettsย  to visit with Nana and Grandpa right before Abram’s first birthday. Mommy told me she wanted to do a “Where the Wild Things Are” theme shoot and I was THRILLED! Who didn’t love that book growing up? Of course I thought it was perfect.

\We set up a teepee (made by Jeremy of @morganmadewoodwork), and surrounded it with pictures of Abram as a baby, had his one year old stats on display, and made sure he had the tail and crown to go along with the theme. And of course we did a cake smash-the very first time Abram had cake!

Happy first birthday to this little man. So glad I got to meet a such a close friend’s little nephew! Thank you to Becky and Adam for trusting me to capture these images!

Chelsy, Joe & Callan

Ahhh hello baby bump! I am proud to say my friend Chelsy is becoming a mother to a little girl, due in late August! Callan is ready to be a big brother and loves showing off that he knows what’s in mommy’s belly!! Callan was such a ham in front of the camera but also loved running around the park, enjoying the freedom!

Congratulations to the D’Antono family as they expand their family… I love watching your family grow over the years!

Noah- Six Month Old Session

Meet Noah! Noah is a six month old handsome little man with big blue eyes! What a fun age to photograph. Noah was so curious and SO aware of his surroundings. He was eager to smile for me and was very curious about what I was doing behind the camera.

The teacher in me was overjoyed with excitement when mommy said; “of course we read with him!”. Woohoo! (must be because both mommy AND daddy are teachers too!) Noah sat on daddy’s lap while having stories read to him. Don’t forget to check out the awesome decor in the nursery… I spied a few elephants! <3

Noah was also SO curious when mommy and daddy placed him in the milk baths… TWO milk baths! How awesome?! One was filled with lemons while the other was fruit loops. Noah loved feeling the fruit and cereal between his toes and loved splashing around.

Happy 6 months to this cutiepatootie! And thank you to Jess & Nick for welcoming me into your home to capture these moments!

Ryan, Courtney & Brielle

Not only do I love tutu’s, but I also love when mommy and daughters wear matching outfits! How cute are Courtney and Ryan with their beautiful floral sundresses? Brielle got to wear some extra flare around her neck that is adorable! Brielle loved walking around the park and throwing stones into the pond!

Enjoy the images and watch for the smooches Brielle got! Thank you to Ryan, Courtney and Brielle for allowing me to capture this time!

The Artola Family

Everyone meet the Artola family! I met this family a few weeks ago at a local park, tucked in between the trees. As soon as we were about to leave the park, I HAD to ask them pull over for one last shot! The sky was so bright and pretty!

Ahhh! These brothers were absolutely adorable! They were so eager to share their own stories, so I got to hear a lot about their teachers, their school year and what their summer plans were.

The love they have for their mommy and daddy is so sweet too! Enjoy!

Tyler, Felicia & Freya

I can’t even begin to tell you the fun that I had with Tyler, Felicia and Freya! And mommy and Freya wore my favorite thing- a tutu! They looked so adorable in their matching outfits.

Freya and I became friends quickly! We collected sticks to make a little campfire, made S’mores over the “fire”, acted like pandas and ate “bamboo” and took a walk together.

At the end of the session Tyler, Felicia and Freya sat down and had a lollipop party! I hung around and snapped some photos having fun. Of course I had a lollipop too that was selected by Freya and we had to compare the colors of our tongues after eating them. Daddy and Freya had a lot of fun pretending to be walruses too.

Enjoy the images and thank you to Tyler, Felicia and Freya for having fun and hanging around the park with me for hours!

Angie, Ricky & Jax

Do you want to bring your dog to your session? The answer is YESSS, you can certainly bring your pup. They are apart of your family too, right?!

Say hello to Angie, Ricky & their sweet baby; Jax, a purebred German Shepard. What amazed me about Jax was that he was able to hang around without a leash- are you lucky enough to be able to do that with your dog?ย  Jax was so sweet and just hung close to everyone and joined in on kisses and snuggles.

One final thought- do you ever meet people for the first time and leave them feeling good? That’s how I left this couple- their laughter was contagious and they give off so much positive energy. To Angie & Ricky- thank you, thank you, thank you! You were so much fun to work with!
