Turning One, Hudson Valley Children’s Portrait Photographer

I have a hard time looking at my kids and realizing how fast they are growing up.  I get that same feeling when I watch my newborns come back for their one year shoot.  I had the joy of first meeting this young lady when she was in her mommy’s tummy.  Here newborn shoot was one of my favorites, first image below, and big sister is a star for the camera.  The best part of seeing my babies again,  is to see how much their personality has grown.  Thank you again for the playdate, I can’t wait for the next one.

Owens Dude Crew, Hudson Valley Photographer

I was a little mopey at the end of this session. I’ve been photographing this dude crew for years and now they are moving away :(  Hopefully mommy will be willing to come back to the Hudson Valley every now and then for a playdate with me.

The “B” Family, Family Portraits Hudson Valley NY

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.

Milestone Mini Session, Turning One In Style…

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!
