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 Massachusetts  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!

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!

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?  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!

Amanda, Brendan & Aubrey

Amanda and Brendan are high school sweethearts and now have a daughter, Aubrey who is just a little over a year old. She is just the cutest little thing- full of curiosity and smiles and has a deep love for their pug, Eli! She thinks he is just the funniest thing and loves watching him with that bright smile on her face.

As Aubrey wandered the park she explored the water, threw rocks in the water and picked flowers. And then…  a teacher’s dream came true- she walked over to her bag and picked up her books! So what did we do? We sat on the grass and let Aubrey read to mommy, daddy and Eli!

Enjoy the images and don’t forget to say goodbye to Aubrey at the end! 😉

Samantha, Joe, Wyatt & Weston

I love when families come to sessions and laugh and do things they would typically do together. It makes it fun for everyone, especially the kids. Wyatt and Weston were adorable and had so much fun with mommy and daddy. They got tossed in the air, played hide and go seek around mommy and daddy’s legs and listened to mommy tell stories. Dad’s Yankee hat became the best accessory and toy for Weston and Wyatt as well!

Thank you to Samantha and Joe for having fun and laughing the entire session!

A few weeks ago I had an amazing day meeting so many awesome mommies and their little ones. It was such a relaxing day with beautiful, warm weather- warm enough for us to step outside for a few shots in the sunshine. Everyone was so happy to hang out and read books with mommy and it was clear to see how loved all of these moms are. Happy Mother’s Day to all those wonderful mommies out there!

Orange County, NY/Aubrey’s First Birthday [Cake Smash]

“Dream big, little girl.”

Today Aubrey turns ONE!

We started the celebration a few weeks ago by diving into a pretty pink cake made by Erin of You’re The Boss Events. Judging by Aubrey’s facial expressions it must have been a delicious cake!

When I showed up to the shoot, Aubrey was dressed in nothing better than a tutu… everyone knows how I love my tutus! Oh and that sequenced headband- yaaaas- everything I love!

Aubrey just hung around like a natural with her beautiful big blue eyes ready to get her photo taken. Aunt Caitlin and big sister Emma blew some bubbles for us and mommy made sure to keep the smiles coming.

Happy Birthday to Aubrey- may all your wishes come true!

Fresh 48/Lawrence Hospital [Ava Rose]

Welcome to the world, Ava Rose!

When I look at these pictures I still can’t believe that I was able to capture this precious time for one of my closest friends. It was such an honor to see Lori within her first 48 hours after giving birth- to even attempt to explain the emotions I felt witnessing my friend soak up all the joys of having a newborn is impossible.

Lori was glowing when I entered her hospital room! Knowing how eager I was to meet Ava, she immediately let me soak up some lovin. Ava loved the snuggles and melted into anyone who would hold her. What better way to spend the day?!

I am looking forward to many more snuggles from Ava in the near future. Needless to say, my heart is still swooning.

The Fresh 48 sessions may easily become one of my favorite sessions! Are you interested in doing a Fresh 48? Contact me at amandalanephotos@gmail.com -I would LOVE to document this sweet time for you.

Fun Facts

So as you all know I am fairly new to doing this on my own! But I thought it would be fun to give you a little insight as to what has been going on behind the scences here. Pretty much everyone knows that I am learning from Erin Lane Photography and she has taught me SO MUCH. I’ve been lucky enough to have been working with her for quite awhile. So here are some fun facts you may not know about Amanda Lane Photography!

Fun Events:

In March I attended The Garrison Bridal Expo with Erin. It was so awesome watching Erin meet new clients!

Go Erin!!!

H E L L O 2018! {End of 2017}

In July I had a crazy thought. Let’s STOP thinking about starting photography on my own and just DO IT! As most of you know, I have been working with Erin Lane Photography for a few years now [Assisting, Second Shooting & Blogging], and finally decided to give it a go on my own. Thank you to Erin, for being my mentor and for encouraging me to take a big leap of faith. You are an amazing mentor and I look forward to learning more from you.

Since July I have photographed some amazing families and have had so much fun seeing everyone get comfortable in front of the camera and show their true colors.  Seeing laughter and the love between families/couples is something that will always make me smile.

Huge shout out to the dancers of D’Antono Dance Academy – seeing your passion has been amazing. You are all beautifuuuul!

Thank you to everyone who made this possible in 2017! I am excited to see what 2018 will bring!

Have fun scrolling through the images I’ve taken in 2017… including some of my own trips and animals!
