The Schmitt Girls, Hudson Valley Children’s Portrait Photographer

You might recognize this two from baby E’s newborn shoot this past summer.  These sisters scored the best sky of night during their holiday portrait session a the tree farm.  The golden hour didn’t let us down and gave us a beautiful yellow glow that highlighted these girls dainty smiles. And their outfits, don’t get me started on how much I love them.  Mommy’s obsession with Christmas combined with outfits from Mini Boden equals wardrobe success!   Thank you again little ladies from bringing the sweetness on and sharing this day with me.

The Serroukas Crew, Hudson Valley Family Portrait Photographer…

Every year around the holidays I invite my returning clients to participate in exclusive holiday family portrait sessions. This year Baker Brothers  opened up their doors and welcomed us to shoot on their lovely tree farm.   The Serroukas family has been with me for many years now and I have watched them go through so much over the past couple years.  This past Christmas was a very special one, cause everyone was happy and healthy.    They have a tremendous amount of strength and I’m as loyal to them as they are to me.   And on a side note, Andrea is available for family portrait styling.

Baby Stella’s Newborn Portraits, Hudson Valley Newborn Photographer

Miss Stella was such a dream baby to work with.  Se barely made a peep during our entire newborn portraits shoot, indoors and out. I hope she sleeps this good everyday for mommy and daddy.  And being it was a beautiful day in the Huson Valley, I was so happy to take advantage my last opportunity to shoot outside.  Lucky for me I have some neighbors with a little backyard that was a perfect fit for us.   Thank you again to the “B” family for having me capture your sweet princess.

Taking a look back to one of my favorite sessions of the summer, at one of my favorite Hudson Valley locations.  Mommy had that wonderful maternity glow and big sister proved she was going to be a rocking older sister.  Thank you “B” family for the experience.
