Amanda, Hudson Valley Senior Photographer…


It is not often I get the chance to photograph seniors, but this stunning young lady is the daughter of my favorite Henna lady.  Yes, I have a favorite Henna lady, Tipsy Turtle.  She also has helped out with my boy crew in the past and they just love her.  I forget sometime how fun it is work with the senior crowd and doing some minor trespassing.   No worries, no apple trees were harmed during this shoot.


Model Crew, Hudson Valley Child Photographer….


Don’t ask what has taken me so long to blog about this fabulous crew.  Mom literally booked me a year out for this session so that she could have the colors of the fall.  Normally the more children I photograph, the harder the shoot, but not this crew.  They were just amazingly easy and so wonderful to work with.  I look forward to the chance to do it again!

Looking Back, Hudson Valley Child Photographer…


Peeking back to one of my favorite families from 2011.  My first session with them just over the top amazing, I was questioning how I was going to top it.  Lucky for me I had 5 camera ready kids and  an super stylish mom to help me bang out another rockin session.

San Diego, Hudson Valley Newborn Photographer…


So I just got back from a trip to San Diego.  My mission, the Baby as Art workshop. I figure if I am going to study working with newborns, then I will work with the best in the biz.  Baby as Art has even photographed celebrities such as Pink and Ziggy Marley, pretty sweet huh.  Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I got to meet an amazing group of girls to as well.  Carrie and Brittany were just fantastic teachers and gave the ultimate workshop experience, and for that I thank them.  Here are a couple sneak peeks from this weekend.


  1. Angela: Awe I am in love with the wraps on the babies. You did a great job capturing these images. April 29, 2012 at 4:26 pm
