Christmas Mini Sessions/Salesian Park/Kowalczik Family

To commence my Christmas mini sessions, I met the Kowalczik family at Salesian Park in Goshen, NY.

Emma and Aubrey looked absolutely adorable in their matching outfits and Emma loves helping mommy and daddy to make baby sister Aubrey laugh. However, tossing both girls in the air makes them both smile and giggle with excitement!

Thank you to Kathy and Brian for kicking off my mini sessions! Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!

D’Antono Dance Academy/Pine Island, NY {Alicia}

Alicia began dancing when she was just 4 years old and has accomplished a lot throughout her dancing career! A few years in, she decided to take a break from dancing and tried out a few other sports but soon decided dancing was her passion.

Alicia joined a competition team in November 2015, and won her very first competition in February 2017 where she won 3rd place overall in her age division. Alicia is now dancing with D’Antono Dance Academy and is looking forward to her second season as a competition dancer! Best of luck to you Alicia!

Family/Maternity Session/Town of Wallkill Park, NY

Everyone meet Mason! Mason is soon going to be a big brother to a very lucky little girl. Mason will surely make an amazing big brother.

Mason is such a curious boy, he walked around and picked up pine cones and sticks and enjoyed throwing stones into the water. I’m sure Mason will love having a little sister to now be curious with.

To Mason, Crystal and Mike: I am so excited to watch your family grow. May you enjoy the next few weeks as a family of 3 and congratulations on welcoming your 4th family member!

Dance/D’Antono Dance Academy/Pine Island, New York

Last weekend I spent some time at D’Antono Dance Academy with the gorgeous girls. We had so much fun trying out different poses all over the studio. These girls are SO talented and SO flexible!

Enjoy my sneak peak of the few girls I met for the first round of pictures!

Pine Island, NY/D’Antono Dance Academy

Remember my friend Chelsy who I mentioned on my Instagram page?! Well this week I was lucky enough to spend some time in her dance studio!

Ms. Chelsy of D’Antono Dance Academy invited me in to her studio to photograph her dancers and of course I couldn’t wait to see her in action as a teacher, how could I say no?

Growing up I spent some time doing gymnastics, but I was never a dancer. So needless to say, I was quite impressed with how flexible and talented these young group of girls were! And they are eager and motivated!

Ms. Chelsy-it was so much fun watching you in action! Congratulations on making your dream a reality! I can’t wait to watch the rest of your dreams come true! Best of luck to you on this new chapter!

And to all the dancers of D’Antono Dance Academy-best of luck and enjoy your dancing careers! You are a very talented group of girls and will do great things!

Salisbury Mills//Newly Adopted Puppy//Couples Portraits

Dogs need a newborn announcement too, right?! Well that’s exactly what we did! Congratulations to Lauryn & Pat as you embark on your new journey of being parents to a four legged fur baby (the best kind)!

Ruby, a 14 week old black lab mix had SO much fun running around. She couldn’t contain her excitement once she realized she was star of the show! Lauryn & Pat came fully stocked with treats, water and toys for Ruby and she got to run the show! Just like any star, Ruby needed a few breaks/nap time too. While she napped, I stole the proud parents away for some pictures.

It is obvious that Ruby loves snuggling with her parents and will do anything for a treat. The laughter and smiles she gave us were endless.

My wish for Ruby is that you are always a curious pup who sees the joy in running around in fields making people laugh! And to the parents, congratulations and good luck! You picked a good one from the litter!

Earl Reservoir Park, Monroe, NY [Anniversary Session]

I love when there is a reason to take photos, whether the pictures are done on an iPhone, or a digital camera- I don’t care! Just capture the memories!

So with Danielle and Rich’s second anniversary fast approaching how could I resist? We met at Earl Reservoir Park in Monroe, New York for some fun photos on the dock and snuggled in the woods. To say these two were naturals in front of the camera is an understatement. Their love is so clear to see and they know how to have fun together!

Happy Anniversary to Danielle & Richard! My wish for you is that in 50 years from now you are still this happy and in love!
