RANCK FAMILY SESSION AT LOCUST GROVE | POUGHKEEPSIE, NY PHOTOGRAPHER

Look up “energetic” in the dictionary, and you probably will NOT find a photo of Josh.  You’d have a better chance seeing his picture while looking up, “lightning bolt”.  As new parents, Chi-Chi and I couldn’t help but look at each other like, “wow, what have we gotten into?”  Haha.  In all seriousness though, as much as Josh was frenetic, he was doubly as adorable.. When ChiWei and Drew reached out to me, having seen IBM co-worker, Andrew’s son’s 1st birthday photos, I happily obliged!  It was a gorgeous day for photography at the Locust Grove in Poughkeepsie, and there was plenty of room to roam around and take advantage of their garden and naturally gorgeous scenery.  This session was just a ton of fun, and I think it shows.  Thanks for opportunity to capture this precious time with your family, and I hope you enjoy the images!

NATHANIEL’S 1ST BIRTHDAY | HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NY CHILD PHOTOGRAPHER

Hi, everyone!  I’d like to introduce you all to Nathaniel, who recently turned 1!  This adorable little guy just has the most contagious smile… Big Daddy Andrew, originally had the idea to suspend a ton of balloons on a self-made net, but it didn’t work as well as planned, so he strung up the balloons instead… either way, the house was decorated just splendidly for this occasion!  Chi and I were actually on our honeymoon the day Nate was born, so we were unable to witness his birth, but there was no way I would miss capturing his 1st birthday!  Obviously, the whole kids scene now has a great deal more meaning to us, and it was a joy to be able to capture the celebration on camera.  Enjoy the photos!

Earlier this month, I was asked to photograph the Mid-Hudson Chinese Christian Church‘s VBS (Vacation Bible School) event which took place from July 11-15th (These photos are from Thursday, the 14th).  If you haven’t noticed yet, I really love capturing events with children.. haha.  There’s just something about the energy in the air, and the expressions on their faces that make capturing them exciting and different every time.  It’s also a true joy to watch the youth grow up and be responsible enough to teach and take care of younger youths!  While shooting, I couldn’t help but try out my new Westcott brolly and immediately decide to commit photography faux pas by including it in some of the photos.  But I really loved the way they came out (especially my 24-105’s lens flare), so hey, rules are meant to be broken, right?  😉
