Family Photographer in Cold Spring NY

Family Photographer in Cold Spring, NY


Do you know what feels super cool and special to me? Being a couple’s wedding photographer and then being asked to be their family photographer.  That’s right Kathleen and Nick first reached out to me a couple of years ago when they were just getting married. They actually live just up the road from me. Although I did not know them at the time, as they just moved into the area.  

They married in a simple and sweet wedding ceremony at a local waterfront park.  You can see the blog post from their wedding here: Hudson Valley Elopement Photographer | Hudson Valley Wedding (

They were so easy to work with them, even back then, and I quickly realized that we had many local friends in common. It was has been wonderful to run into them about town since their wedding. It was also great to hear that they were expecting their first child. 

It was such a pleasure to be not only Kathleen and Nick’s wedding photographer but also their family photographer. Even their son was easy during the photo session.  He was focused, calm, and did not shy away from looking into the camera – which can be difficult to do with children his age.  

I photographed their outdoor family photos session in the area just around their Cold Spring home. The weather started out sunny but towards the end of the session, the weather turned moody.  By the time I left it was sunny again.  We simply adjusted to the quality of the natural light and moved about their yard. We started in the grass and then ended up in the adjacent woods.  

Thank you Kathleen and Nick for the opportunity to photograph your family again.  It is such a pleasure to get to photograph a local couple knowing that I will have the opportunity to get to know them better and watch their family grow.
