Yup, I’m Still Here. Hudson Valley Newborn Photographer

Yes, my poor blog has taken a hit the last 5 months but that’s because I’ve been a busy worker bee in the studio.  I’ve had the joy of photographing a whole bunch of babies, just like this sweet newborn right here.

Farm to Studio, Hudson Valley Newborn Photography

Remember my family maternity on the farm?  Well, her he is.  He was born a little too far from my area for me to photograph him in the hospital, but I had the joy of snuggling with him in my studio.  Along with his sister, he was the perfect little peanut and couldn’t have asked for a better baby. I look forward to seeing him again later this year for his milestone mini session. Hudson Valley Newborn Photographer 1 Hudson Valley Newborn Photographer 2 Hudson Valley Newborn Photographer 3 Hudson Valley Newborn Photographer 4 Hudson Valley Newborn Photographer 5 Hudson Valley Newborn Photographer 6

Maternity Session on the Farm, Hudson Valley Photographer

I was so excited to finally meet up with this growing family last winter for their maternity session on the farm.  Big sister to be took some time to warm up to me but by the end, we were best friends.  She had this draw to her that even the cows on the field couldn’t get enough of her, they came running from the other fields just to watch her.  And Mommy to be, she is one of those beautiful woman who do pregnancy so well.

Stay tuned for baby brother’s newborn session and thank you to Brookside Farm in Garidner for once again letting me borrow your land.
