Catskills Family Photos
Your Mountain Memories,
Seems like a no brainer, right?
You and your family, on a peaceful getaway upstate in the Catskills. You're all together, feeling good.
It only makes sense to turn this trip into a lasting memory.
Beautiful in every respect.
Of course the Catskills and Hudson Valley are beautiful and scenic, but we are going to be capturing more than just scenery.
As a lifestyle family photographer, my specialty is capturing genuine connection, and what's more beautiful than that?

What's better than a kitschy mug or generic keychain? How about a custom 8x8 photo album, to commemorate your vacation? In addition to all of your photos as digital downloads, my family vacation package includes a custom, pro-grade photo album, so you'll be able to relive your mountain adventure whenever you feel like it.
You have concerns? I have you covered.
When that camera comes out, it can be hard to relax. Am I making a weird face? Did I just blink? Is this my good side? And unless you're a veteran model, you probably have no idea how to pose yourself!
The most common piece of feedback I get from past clients is that I made their session easy and them feel comfortable. This is no surprise to me though. After 10+ years on the job, I know this is probably the most important thing I can do at a family session. So you can relax, trust that I will make you look and feel good on picture day!
I'll Show You.
What if your rental doesn't have a good backdrop? What if there's not enough light inside of the living spaces. How will you know where to go in a place you're not familiar with? How do you find a spot with great views, perfect light that's easily accessible for your family?
A big part of my job as a family photographer is finding good locations to shoot. From the banks of the Delaware to the lower Hudson Valley, I have some incredible spots I'm super familiar with that I can bring you to. Don't stress .
Your Kids Won't
They Don't Have To!
Would you even be a parent if you weren't worried about how your kids are going to behave? With change of schedule, missed naps, and having to spend time with a strange.
Listen. I'm a family photographer for a reason. Crazy kids don't faze me. In fact, I have two of my own. I want your kids to be themselves, go wild and have a good time. If there's one time it's A-Ok, it's during your vacation family photo session with me!
The mountains have a way of throwing you weather curveballs. Will it be raining during your session, what if it's too cloudy, or windy? What if my rental has bad lighting, or isn't aesthetically pleasing enough for an indoor shoot?
It's hard to be a photographer in the mountains without finding ways to adapt to crappy weather. Clear umbrellas, moving your session indoors or to my studio in Jeffersonville, NY, I got you covered, so you don't have to think twice about the forecast.
What to Wear?
You want family photos, but what will you wear? Figuring out a color palette, footwear that will work while keeping everybody happy, comfortable and looking good is a daunting task, before you even realize you have to remember to pack it as well!
Worrying about what to wear is so common. That's why I have a super helpful style guide as well as a client closet you can borrow from for the day of your session. Just ask if you're feeling stuck about your family's wardrobe! It's not as serious as you think.
