Sometimes things don’t work out with a session as planned, like location for instance. I have been doing the “B” family portraits for years, so when I showed up to our original shooting grounds and found it closed, I slightly panicked. Since I was in an area I wasn’t to familiar with, I had to think quick for a backup plan. A friend once told me, “Always look around the corner, cause you might find something better.” So I hoped in my car and drove down the street and round the corner and found a with the help of mom, found something even better. The grounds of this new place were absolutely lovely, even the weeds were beautiful. We went for a hike and on the way back to the car, the dramatic clouds moved in and the bottom photo came out, one of my favorites of last year.
This little porcelain doll was in late last year for her her first Christmas mini session, now she is back to celebrate the one year milestone. The weather was too bad to venture out, but she didn’t disappoint in the studio, she was full of smiles. I hope you had the most fantastic 1st birthday party!
Well, more like out of the country. I will be on a family trip from May 6th to the 12th. I will have no phone access so please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Hudson Valley Baby Photographer – This week I had a visit in the studio with one my previous newborns. The last time we had a visit was for her first Christmas pictures, today I get a peek at how she has grown since then. Isn’t her skin as soft as a porcelain doll? I can’t wait to see her again for our Mother’ Day minis!
Milestone mini sessions are available through out the week, for babies ages 6-12 months. Please contact me at email@example.com for details
Doing a throwing back this Thursday to a twilight session that that produced some of my favorite fall family portraits of 2014. These are some of the sweetest girls I know and it was such a special time we had together for this mother/daughters shoot. Our session included a lot of dancing, posing, more dancing, laughing, a bit more dance posing and lots of hugs. And did I mention how much I love shooting in the fall at twilight? Look at that golden glow.
