family photos at long wood gardens — pennsylvania family photographer

September is one of my favorite months for photo shoots at Longwood Gardens. It still looks like summer … but it’s not (usually) too hot. We happened to have a warm and toasty day for our family photo session … but these guys were troopers! We wandered around and even found the beautiful meadow at the back. The flowers were in full bloom … and perfectly matched big sister’s bow. She wore a bow last time we met up for her baby brother’s newborn photos … and I was smitten. I secretly hoped she would wear one this time around … and I got my wish!



Isn’t that meadow incredible?! It was worth the trek to the back of the gardens : )

Happy weekend!

rita — 6 months old! — hudson valley ny photographer

Hi Friends!

It’s the second day of fall! How did that happen?! Summer went by a little too fast for my liking. Thankfully, it still feels like summer. In fact, last week, we were sweating it out on photo sessions in Delaware! I tried not to complain too much because I know I’ll DEFINITELY be complaining when the cold settles in this winter. I’m excited for fall photos, though! Have you booked your session yet? Email me … I don’t have too much availability left, but I’d love to try and get you in.

But now … on to precious little Rita. Just as a refresher, here she was a newborn. Gah! Sooooo cute!

And now … well, now, she’s a precious little 6-month-old with the cutest clothes ever! We wandered around Longwood Gardens and she modeled them for me while giving her Mom and Dad lots of snuggles and smooches.

Not only did we have the delightful flowers at Longwood to serve as the perfect backdrop for Rita’s 6-month baby photos, but her Grandma sent along some beautiful flower crowns and bouquets. (Lucky Rita to have a Grandma who is a florist!) We thought they were very pretty to look at. Rita thought they looked delicious! ; )




These pictures just make me happy : )

Just in case you’re wondering about that swim suit … because I KNOW you’re wondering about that swim suit … it’s a Janie and Jack … and looks like it’s still available and on sale!

Have a wonderful weekend!!!!
Kate

Elizabeth is one! — hudson valley, NY baby photographer

Another year plan wrapped up! Even from the very beginning, Elizabeth was just an absolute delight to photograph. And she totally rocks out the BEST headwear : ) Here’s a look at newborn, 3 months, six months, and then finally … one year old …

For our one-year-old photo session, we met up at Ridley Creek State Park in Pennsylvania. This park is one of my favorite spots because it offers so much! From the beautiful mansion … to the horses, lovely stone garden … to the paths in the woods, there’s just much to explore.

We started off chatting with the horses. Big brother led the way  …

My heart broke a tiny little bit on this session. There was the most beautiful tree at the side of the mansion and I always tell kids it’s the smoochie tree. That totally tricks them into smooching their sibling (most of the times) once they’re up in the tree. But this time, it was gone : ( Maybe it got too old, or was sick … but the smoochie tree is no longer. So we found a new smoochie tree, as you can see in the photo above: )

Elizabeth has the most beautiful big blue eyes … just like her big brother …

I’m still having a hard time believing how big Steven has gotten!! I still remember his newborn photo session like it was yesterday!

Their little smiles make me happy : ) I know they must just melt their Mom and Dad’s hearts every day!

Happy first day of fall!!
Kate
