EVAN'S BAPTISM | WESTCHESTER, NY BAPTISM PHOTOGRAPHER

EVAN’S BAPTISM | WESTCHESTER, NY BAPTISM PHOTOGRAPHER

For my last shoot of 2011, I had the privilege of being the baptism photographer for an old friend from Sleepy Hollow High School at beautiful St. Peter’s Church in Yonkers, NY.   The original plan was for me to photograph her maternity session, but our schedules simply did not make that possible.  That said, I definitely do not have any regrets, as the setting for this baptism was gorgeous.  Funny though, since the entire service took place in Spanish, it wasn’t easy anticipating certain portions of the event, but well.. you know me and challenges!  😉  I tightened up the camera strap, made use of what little I remembered from 7th grade Spanish class, and toughed it out.  It was a truly a blessing witnessing adorable Evan’s infant baptism.  Enjoy the captures!

AUSTIN'S 7TH BIRTHDAY | SLEEPY HOLLOW, NY CHILD PHOTOGRAPHER

AUSTIN’S 7TH BIRTHDAY | SLEEPY HOLLOW, NY CHILD PHOTOGRAPHER

This week I thought I’d post up some photos from Austin’s  seventh birthday party.  I know I say this a lot, but it’s pretty amazing how fast kids grow..  Feels like just a couple of years ago, I was throwing him up in the air, like a sack of potatos (because.. I do that often).  If I were to do that now, I’d probably throw my back out.  =P  The first photo is one of the little guy when he was just a wee tyke for comparison!  Now he’s running around, playing Pokemon and Beyblade all day…  =)  ENJOY!

Apologies for the blurriness, I took this with my cell phone and all those years back, there weren’t very many manual controls… but, of course, the content always trumps everything else  😉

7 rambunctious years later .. 😉

Pokeball cake = awesome mom.

When I used to live in Westchester, this Sleepy Hollow park was home to pot smokers and mucho police activity.  So glad they finally cleaned it up and beautified it!

I think 65% of the moms I know own a DSLR
