MOHONK MOUNTAIN HOUSE, HUDSON VALLEY PHOTOGRAPHER | IWATA FAMILY SESSION

When Sami reached out to me to photograph her Californian family at Mohonk Mountain House, it was pretty hard to resist.  Though I’ve lived in New Paltz, NY for many years now, I’ve never actually been at the world-renown resort!  And you know what?  It definitely lives up to the hype.  With infinitely spanning views of the Minnewaska State Park Preserve, and their immaculately manicured grounds (not to mention the main buildings’ uncanny resemblance to Hogwarts), there is no question as to why many choose it for their wedding venue.  Add a beautiful 3-generation family to the mix, along with two awesome kids, and you can’t go wrong.  Even though the weather was stormy on and off, the day was still just a blast.  Enjoy the photos!

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NY PHOTOGRAPHER | GABE'S NEWBORN SESSION

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NY PHOTOGRAPHER | GABE’S NEWBORN SESSION

How cute can cute get?  I’ve got the idea that it starts around Gabe.  Then I guess, with his two gorgeous parents, (Lisa and Brian, whose Poughkeepsie wedding I’ll be photographer for at the Grandview!) that’s not the hardest task.  😉  This adorable tyke was just over a month old when we took this session in late March and just pulls the best faces ever.  The pictures were captured at Brian’s parents’ gorgeous home in Dutchess County and with all the natural light streaming in from so many locations, it wasn’t difficult getting many “awww” shots.  I especially loved the personal touches, such as Gabe’s knit aviator cap, complete with fold-down sunglasses (Brian is a pilot!) and using Brian’s helmet as a prop.  Can’t wait to shoot the wedding later this August!  And, of course, see how much Gabe has grown even cuter!

LAW FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY AT DRESSEL FARMS | HUDSON VALLEY, NY PHOTOGRAPHER

LAW FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY AT DRESSEL FARMS | HUDSON VALLEY, NY PHOTOGRAPHER

As a young child, my parents were heavily involved with community theater, and more specifically, 4 Seas Productions.  By extension, I had been involved in a few plays, myself, but that’s neither here nor there 😉  This is where I met Theresa and Kevin, an aspiring photographer in his own right.  At the time, Theresa was stage manager, and simultaneously sort of my big sister during rehearsals, making sure I kept out of trouble and didn’t fall off the stage or anything.  She also worked for Simon and Schuster, and for the longest time, LOVED getting new books from her, as I used to be an avid reader as a kid (there is purposeful emphasis on the past-tense, if you didn’t notice).  It’s just funny that now she’s sending some awesome books for Joel, and the cycle is repeating..  =)  Anyway, it was just as fun catching up and reminiscing as it was photographing her beautiful family at Dressel Farms in New Paltz with my brand-spankin’ new 5D markIII.  Ulster county, and the Hudson Valley, in general, are simply stunning during the fall season (at least before Hurricane Sandy knocked down most of the leaves prematurely) and served as the perfect mix of yellow and red to serve as the backdrop to an already gorgeous day.  In the midst of Sandy’s aftermath, enjoy the photography to cap off what was a pretty, albeit short-lived, autumn!
