Loving the MacMillan Family, Hudson Valley Family Photographer….

Colleen and her kids joined me a couple months back for the Mother’s Day Mini Sessions.  Its always an honor to photography any family, however when another photographer hires you, that is an extra special complement.  And as you can see, our shoot was full of fun vintage cameras that mommy brought along with her.  Thank you again Colleen and family for such a wonderful time.  Your children are beyond amazing.

Newborn Baby “E,” Hudson Valley Newborn Photographer

I’m always delighted when former newborn clients come back to have me photograph their newest family addition.  Baby “E” was  beyond a dream and was content just sleeping the whole time, which makes the session ultra smooth.  When it came down to baby taking a break, it was big sisters turn.   I know mommy was a little nervous that sister wouldn’t warm up so quickly, however once I gave her something to climb on, she was cake.  And although it had rained earlier in the day, we were able to sneak the pram out for quick pictures.  Luckily the baby didn’t walk out as muddy as our feet.  Thank you again “S” family for spending this time with me and giving me the freedom to run with a vision.

Mother’s Day Mini Sessions, Kelly’s Little Man….

This sweet little boy was one of  my newborns last winter.  This handsome little man came to visit me with his momma for the Mother’s Day Mini Sessions.  I love seeing how grown up my babies are.
