Baby’s First Christmas Mini Sessions, Hudson Valley Portrait Photographer

This December 6th, I will be offering “Baby’s First Christmas” mini sessions.  Sessions are more ideal for independent babies, used to tummy time or sitting independently, but siblings are welcome to help out with holding baby.  Not ideal for newborns due to lack of time with baby posing.  Please email me regarding any age concerns.

Collections vary but all  include 20 minutes, 12-15 proofed images,  and custom ornament.  A-la-carte prints start at $35 and all ordered images will be uploaded to our store front on TinyPrints or Minted for you to create your custom card. Please email me at melissa@surprisephotography.com for booking and pricing  information.

Payment is due upon booking to hold your spot.

Out of Office, Disney Wine & Dine….

 

wineanddineJust a quick note to let everyone know I will be leaving bright and early tomorrow morning to catch a flight to Orlando to participate in my first Disney Wine and Dine event. I have been training for this 1/2 marathon for about 5 months now and the day has finally come.

Many of you may know, I’m running with a team who’s goal was to raise money for Sparrow’s Nest, a  non for profit that feeds mommy’s with cancer in the Hudson Valley. I will personally be running in honor of my friend Carla, who passed away a year ago of cancer.

If you have emailed me in the past day, or if you reach out in the next couple of days, please know I will get back to you once I return next week.

Thank you and please check out Sparrow’s Nest and find how you can help this wonderful group make a difference for mommy’s in the Hudson Valley.

The “S” Family is Growing, Hudson Valley Maternity Photographer…

This was my second go around with this sweet family.  We changed it up from our first shoot, which was more urban and took it to the country.  It was POURING earlier in the Hudson Valley but we stuck it out and just before our shoot time, the clouds let up and the beautiful evening light shined through.  Just look at momma, she does pregnancy so well!

Jeremy & Rachelle, Intimate Backyard Wedding…

I have a few wedding to blog but being family and all, Jer and Rachelle are getting a bump.  This past summer my family flew to Oregon to stay with family and celebrate the vows of my husband’s younger brother and his fiance.  It was a small, backyard affair with only immediate family and a few close friends in attendance.  Their good friend from Santa Barbara flew in to officiate, while the bride’s parents assisted in the ceremony.  The party went on into the night with dancing and karaoke.

Welcome to the family Rachelle, and prepare yourself for a lifetime of “Surprise” jokes and questions like, “Is that really your last name?”
