Breastfeeding Mini Sessions | Hudson Valley Lifestyle Photographer

World Breastfeeding Week is August 1st-7th. I'd love to offer mini sessions for mamas who want to capture the unique bond that nursing creates between mother and child.

Now that I'm journeying through motherhood myself, more than ever do I realize that every moment in a person's life is fleeting. Especially for mamas who relish those quiet nursing moments with their babies. Mamas who know that every baby will eventually stop nursing, and those quiet moments will soon be forgotten.... Please let me capture a nursing moment for you so that you will never forget it.

These sessions will be held at one of two private locations, you choose which location you want. Only clients who pay the session fee will receive the address, and no one else will be present at your session. The session fee is $105* (tax included) and includes the following:  a 30 minute session, 5 digital images, and a $30 product credit.  The credit may be applied to prints, albums (mini or full size), canvases, or additional digital files.  Additionally, all purchases beyond the credit will receive a 15% discount. 

Whether your wee one is 2 months old or 2 years old (or any age in between!)... If you're nursing a singleton, twins, or one big & one little... Whatever the case is, let's talk about how I can capture these moments for you.  Because if you blink now, your baby will soon be grown, and nursing will be just a faded memory.

You can call/text me at 914-548-8282, or you can email me  Please feel free to share this post and tell your mama friends.  BONUS - If you refer a friend and she books a breastfeeding session, you each will receive an additional $15 product credit!

*Please note that this session fee must be paid in full in order to reserve your date and time.

Emma | Hudson Valley Lifestyle Photographer

As I look back at my photos over the past 12 months, not only am I able to witness my own growth, but I also get the honor of watching my clients grow up. Emma is a fabulous example of this. I shot her newborn portraits in March of 2012, and her 6-month portraits in August. Just a couple weeks ago, I was delighted to shoot her 12-month portraits (and a cake smash!). See how she has grown up significantly between each of our sessions:

Emma was a spunky little baby, and she is growing up to be quite a spunky little toddler! And so lovable. She may not have been entirely interested in the camera during our most recent session, but she entertained us and kept us laughing.

We did also try to grab a photo of her holding her own newborn portrait, but she seemed offended by it, and just kept pushing it away. I mean, I know my photography technique was lacking back then, but it wasn't that bad... right?!? ;)

Head over to my facebook page at to see more photos, and to contact me for your own little one's portraits!

Snow Portraits | Hudson Valley Lifestyle Photographer

Winter has never been my favorite season. In fact, as I've gotten older, it's become my least favorite season! Sure, snow is pretty and all, but I truly can't stand being cold.

The past couple of years, though, I've finally started to see (like I did when I was younger) the beauty in the season. Wide open spaces with untouched snow... Tree branches and cars coated with white crystals.... Icicles sparkling in the sunlight.... And an unexpected masterpiece - bokeh created by rock salt.

That's something I never would have seen, if it weren't for the photographer in me!

I had so much fun with my snow sessions last week that I am actually looking forward to next winter, just so I can have the chance to offer these sessions again.

Stella | Baby Portraits | Hudson Valley Lifestyle Photographer

Stella recently came over to my little in-home studio for some 3-month portraits. I had a few setups ready, and her mama also brought some cute outfits, so we were able to get quite a variety of shots! I love the photo on the top left... This sweetie is starting to learn that her arms are attached to her body, which led to many shots of her tiny fists waving in front of her face. It really looks like she wants to fight me!

I am already eager to meet up with Stella again for her 6-month portraits in April. It is so exciting to watch these babies grow!
