Monroe, New York Family Session

One of the things I love most about photography is meeting the families. I’ve met some of the nicest people through photography and have had so much fun with their kids.

I met Jen and Shawn at Earl Reservoir Park in Monroe, New York for their afternoon family session. We met when the trees were still changing colors, it was so pretty by the water! Riley and Grace enjoyed looking for acorns and twirling in their dresses. We ended their session by taking a break and swinging on the swings in the park.

Salisbury Mills Family Session

{Jen, Eric, Dante, Jackson & Luca}

Want to know the secret to family photos? Have fun, be yourselves and let’s work together to choose a location that suits you and your family!

One of the last warm days of Autumn I met this wonderful family at the train trestles in Salisbury Mills, New York. Dante, Jackson and Luca love trains so this was perfect location. The sun was shining so brightly and we had beautiful skies. We had such a good time and I felt like I had known this family forever. At the end of the session Jen gave me a big hug and was so thankful… and that my friends, is one of the reasons why I love doing what I do.

Thankย you Jen and Eric for allowing me to capture you and your family!

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.

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!

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…ย  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! ๐Ÿ˜‰

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!

Goshen Family Photographer {The VanDyke Family}

I had such a great time hanging with Taylor, Justin and their beautiful daughter Mila. Mila had so much fun hanging out with both mommy and daddy. Daddy said to Mila in the beginning; “Just be yourself. Do ‘Mila’ things”, I thought; “That is the BEST thing ever”. And sure enough, Mila had a blast running around the park, picking flowers and getting tickled by mommy and daddy. I followed them around the pond while they explored; Daddy picked up turtles and Mila sat on mommy’s shoulders. Enjoy!

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 withย Erin Lane Photographyย 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.ย  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 Academyย – seeing your passion has been amazing. You are all beautifuuuul!

Thank you to everyone who made this possible in 2017!ย 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!
