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!

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?  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!

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!

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!

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.

{Keep scrolling at the end for a sweet surprise!}
