Yesterday I had the opportunity to spend a gorgeous day, with a gorgeous family, at their gorgeous property. Makes my job pretty darn easy! We had a great time just hanging out and watching baby J cruise around his yard. I love sessions with the little ones as I get to experience all those simple joys all over again. And joy there was in abundance, when this little fellow wasn’t beaming with his mouth, his eyes still seemed to smile. A great time was had by all – and I am particularly enjoying this assignment as Mom & Dad have asked for all the edits in black and white! Enjoy the sneak peek. 🙂

Hey all! Okay, so once again, after garnering a lot of feedback from you out there on the interwebs – I decided to put together a promo that would satisfy several needs in one session! So many moms (and dads!) out there are wearing even more hats than ever – not only are they serving the many duties that parenting requires, but they’re also working either in or out of the home as well, and in many cases have started their own businesses or blogs. This is where the Many Hats Promo was born – it satisfies both your want for a family portrait session as well as using part of our time together to get the head shots and product shots that you want/need to use on your website, blog, promotional material, etc. This May, save yourself the precious time and money that are so hard to come by these days – and take care of business (and family!) with a Many Hats session. Please contact me to book or with any inquiries – via e-mail, my website, or telephone at 845.418.2528. Book during May and redeem your session anytime in 2011. Looking forward to working with lots of you!

Well, you asked for it – and you got it! One of the promos that many of you have said you wanted to see is a headshot promo, and so I wanted to deliver on that. This month I have two headshot promos running, one at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center (fabulous venue for many different looks!) on Saturday, May 28th, and the other at a time and location of your choosing. I realize that the Stamford, CT location is much closer for my Westchester County, NY and Fairfield County, CT clients – but fear not Mid Hudson Valley! Your location and promo are coming up next month. 🙂 In the meantime, you know you want to ditch that old, outdated, unflattering headshot you’ve been using for years. Make the best possible first impression you can to your clients, readers, etc. with a great new headshot. And we’ll have some fun while we’re at it! As always, you can call to book at 845-418-2528, e-mail me through this link, or fill out the contact form at my site. MUST BOOK BY 5/21/11. Can’t wait to spend some time with you all!
Well, for all the times I’ve shot sessions in super heat and humidity, sweating my behind off, still just trying to get “the perfect shot” – yesterday was not one of them. No, yesterday was not only roughly 36 degrees at shoot time, but there was a steady wind whipping off the Hudson. Though it really caught us off guard a couple of times, in the end we just laughed about it – and a good time was had by all. You’d never know from looking at the faces of this mom and daughter duo just what the weather conditions were like. Something tells me it’s the warm bond that these two share that kept those outside forces at bay. But aside from the blustery winds, the true reason I titled this post “Blown Away” was because that’s just how I felt upon meeting little Miss N. Miss N has just 4 1/2 years under her belt in this world, and yet from minute one of our time together she had a poise, character, and amazing joie de vivre that is truly unparalleled by the other 4 1/2 year olds I know. We all know how sound travels so well on water, and I can only hope that all of Manhattan just a few miles down the Hudson River got to enjoy the genuine and hearty laughter that issued forth from her our whole time together.
To Miss N and her fabulous mama Mrs. M – ’twas a pleasure to work with you and shoot your Mommy and Me session. Enjoy your sneak peek.

Greetings blog readers and supporters of BCP! As you know, I like to do promotions now and then to thank you all for being the great clients (and potential clients) that you are. I was just sitting and brainstorming the other day, and voila! – my next promo just kind of hit me.
There has been a common thread in several of my last sessions, namely, the mom in the family has said to me at some point something along the lines of “I’m so happy I finally have the opportunity to be IN the pictures – I’m always the one BEHIND the camera, and never the one IN FRONT of it!” As much as we moms love taking snapshots of our family, and as important as it is that we continue to do so, it can definitely be a bit discouraging to never have the opportunity to see yourself in the shots with your family.
But fear not! This is where my new promo comes in – the Mommy & Me promo! I have custom tailored this package to be something both practical and exciting for all you moms out there. Not only will you get photo session time on-location at a spot of your choosing, you’ll get an 8×10 print fully mounted on 3/4″ solid backing and ready to hang -PLUS – not1, not 2, but THREE little accordion mini-books with your favorite session shots. Just think, a mini brag book for your purse, one for home or work, and another you could even give!
You’re so used to giving to your children and family – this April give yourself that time in front of the camera with your loved ones that you’re always wishing for. Or, drop a hint to someone that this is something you’d love to get as a gift! This promo will be valid only until 4/30 – but can be redeemed through 12/31/11.
These sessions can be booked effective immediately – just call 845.418.2528, fill out the contact form at my website, or e-mail me. Can’t wait to see both familiar and new moms – and the ones they love!
Yesterday morning I got to spend time with 3 familiar faces, and one brand new face! I had the pleasure of working with this family last year, and they just had the pleasure of welcoming a brand new little boy to their mix! After working with his gorgeous big sister last spring, I anticipated that wee Mr. A was going to be something of a stunner – and he certainly didn’t disappoint! Clocking in at a mere 3 weeks old, Mr. A certainly seemed comfortable and at peace in his new environment, electing to snooze for most of our time together. Still, there’s something about seeing a baby totally enveloped in slumber that can evoke strong emotion, and warm the heart. Enjoy the sneak peek of this new little man.
…and everything nice. That really IS what this little girl was made of. Fresh off starting her 9th week in this world, I was able to spend a lovely session today with Miss A and her loving mom. This little princess was a willing model for all of the accessories that her mom and I threw at her, and may I add, she looks wicked cute in a hat! I look forward to seeing her sweet face on my screen as I edit the rest of our session. In the meantime, enjoy this sneak peek!
