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 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!

Sharing this little sweetie today! Ahhh Ava Rose! Documenting this time was special for me because I’m kind of like an auntie to her…  lucky me. =) Not only was it special for me for that reason, but also because I can only imagine how fast this time flies!

There is nothing sweeter than seeing a newborn squirm around and watching those fresh baby smiles. Ava was just a little over a week old in these pictures-it’s hard to believe that she’s already over a month old! And she already looks so different- slow down Ava, we want to enjoy the journey!

Enjoy checking out this cutie and the gorgeous pearls she has from her great grandma.
