Here are a couple of my new niece. Isn't she beautiful?

What a fun time we had at this photo shoot for Robin's Egg Pink. We did this shoot in Port Ewen and I am sure these ladies were thinking "we are going to do pictures where?" It took a little while for the girls to warm up, but I think they would have stayed all night if they could have.

This little guy wasn't in the shoot, but I couldn't resist.

Spring Mini Session at Poet's Walk

I am pleased to announce a date for spring mini sessions. Mini sessions will be held at Poet's Walk in Red Hook. Sessions will be held on May 24th with a rain date of May 31st.

Session is $350 and includes:
15-20 minute outdoor session and in person proofing
10 x 20 mounted storyboard
$200 print credit

Sessions are limited to 2 children. Each additional child is $20. Appointments are required and space is limited. Pre-payment is required to reserve your session. Each session will include an in person proofing session where 5-7 proofs will be shown.

How does a mini session differ from a regular session? Regular sessions are at a location of your choice. You are presented with 25 to 30 proofs. Mini sessions are located at a pre determined location and last 15 to 20 minutes. 5 to 7 proofs will be shown.

What is a print credit? A print credit is money applied toward the purchase of regular prints. This includes desk prints, wall prints and wallets. Print credits cannot be used for storyboards, canvases or other specialty products.

How do I sign up?

Adventures in transportation-a trip to New York

Traveling with kids is always an adventure. Here is a little bit from our recent adventure to the city.

I had an idea for a really cool shot, so I take the eldest aka the best listener and tell her to stand here. I said to stand still, but i didn't tell her to look like this is the worst day of her life. She did that one all on her own. Anyway, here is the shot. I think it is pretty cool anyway.
