Lauren – 10 day old newborn baby in the Hudson Valley

At just 10 days old, Lauren already knew how to work it for her newborn photography session! We started off with some simple, cozy and cute poses on a plush mohair blanket and some pretty lace and linen layering fabrics and she rocked my favorite bonnet:

We switched our set up to incorporate this gorgeous dusty rose textured backdrop and sweet baby Lauren curled up nicely in a womb-like pose for me

Sometimes the best poses are the ones that baby does on her own! Lauren loved to sleep with her arms up by her head so of course I had to capture that for mom and dad! Doesn’t she look so peaceful? I always wonder what babies dream about.
Tutus are not typically my thing but mama loves them and brought this cute set for Lauren’s newborn photos – I’m always happy to incorporate special requests, sentimental items, etc. – as this was not my usual style I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do with it – I think the lace overlay worked out well!

How do we compliment a tutu? Why add a girly headband, of course! I wanted to make sure we had something a touch different that would go well with the above photo in their album – these two images went perfectly together in their custom designed book!

One of my very favorite photos – my husband and I grabbed this authentic reclaimed barnwood recently from 2 barns that were demolished in Goshen NY – well worth the effort if I may say! Miss Lauren sure seemed to like her cozy fur ‘nest’ as she was lying in the basket and modeling the headband I made special for my Christmas babies!

Big brother Chase is full of energy and was a bit tough to convince but he eventually gave into my charms! ;) He was quite proud to show off that shirt!

How sweet is Chase with his baby sister?

We sure worked hard for this family photo – look at those great smiles! It should be a crime how amazing mama looks too!

Thank you SO much, Valerie, Garrett, Chase and Lauren! It was such a pleasure meeting you all and capturing this special time for your family. I can’t wait to see you again soon!

Baby John – Hudson Valley NY Newborn Photography

Holy moly it’s been a wild year! I spent the first few months of 2014 recovering from major surgery, the majority of the year in physical therapy and still managed to take photos of babies and families galore! It’s really awful how badly I have neglected my blog. It’s always the last thing on my never ending to-do list and never seems to actually get done! Blogging to me is like putting the laundry away – I know I should do it but there are so many other things to do that I feel are more important so it rarely happens.

While I had intended to really catch up on all of the sessions I hadn’t blogged I know that isn’t a goal that I’ll actually accomplish so I’m not going to kid myself. How about a few highlights from some recent favorites? We’ll start with Baby John. John was such a good boy for me – he slept so well and was extremely cooperative. He even gave me a couple of smiles! =)

Max- 6 month old baby photos

Please bare with me while I attempt to get caught up! Max came back in May for his next Baby’s First Year Plan photo session – around 6 months old. Max and his mom Beth live down in Brooklyn so coming up to the Hudson Valley isn’t exactly a quick ride up the street! I cannot tell you how honored I am when I get clients who travel from far away! I’ve had clients come to me from Trumbull CT, Bayonne NJ, Brooklyn NY and even out in eastern CT! It is a HUGE compliment that they like me and my photography that much and I appreciate it so very much.


Max was a bit tired and cranky when he came to me for our second installment of photos in his Baby’s First Year Plan but we still created some adorable photos! Here he is happy as can be on the same blanket we used for his newborn session

Beth brought the cutest little tie for him! What a charmer!

Max wanted to show off his new skills again in a different outfit this time but it was quickly approaching nap time since he hadn’t slept much on the ride up

…aaaaand he’s OUT!

Thanks so much for making the trip up here from Brooklyn to see me!
