What better way to celebrate the arrival of this gorgeous Spring weather we have been waiting for than with an outdoor family photo session.

I am offering two options for Spring Sessions this year.

A perfect Mother’s Day gift for that special Mom in your life. I’ll even gift wrap it for you! Doesn’t get any easier than that.

Last Summer and Fall Craig and I had the pleasure of attending several Botanical Beverage classes at Stone Barns Center. Visiting the farm and its surrounding fill me with such pleasure. The classes were no exception. Earlier this year Maggie Nolin, Philanthropy Operations Manager contacted me with regard to the creation of the 2016 Botanical Beverage Program. Some of the images I took during last July’s class in the dooryard garden are featured on this years flyer. I am honored to see my work featured and cannot wait to attend more classes this year.

It is always hard for me to wrap my head around it, but time really does fly.  It does not seem like 12 months since I photographed Finley and her family for her newborn photo session.  Fortunately for me I had another opportunity to spend time with this adorable family back in the fall for their Holiday card photo session.  However so much has happened since then and Finely has grown so much.  We spent some time at their home last week capturing Finely Aged 1!  Her personality shone through during the session.  We were fortunate enough to have to chance to take some images outside towards the end of the session.

Sadly Finely and her family will be relocated to Texas later this month and so this was our last session together .

Best of luck in the big move Finley and family.  It has been wonderful sharing this first year with you.

With Spring just around the corner it is the perfect time to freshen up your headshot.

Your headshot is most often THE first impression people get of you. It should be current and should also be a true reflection of who you are.

Are you in need of a new headshot image for use on your company website, social media site or linkedin profile? Actors, actresses, dancers and singers needing to update your portfolio?

I would love to work with you to ensure you have an up to date profile image that you are proud of.

I am currently offering mini headshot sessions.

20 minute shoot
$195
3 digital files (color and black & white)
Shoot must take place within 15 miles of Tarrytown NY.

I am a natural light photographer and prefer to create a non studio look for your headshot. I can come to your home or place of work, or alternatively we can meet at a location in your hometown.

If you require more images for a portfolio and wish to have several outfit changes you would need to book a full headshot session. This would be a 45 minute session and the price would be $375 for 12 – 15 digital files.

Contact me today to schedule your session.

Email me debbie@debbieallanphotography.com to schedule your session.

I like to hold off on blogging my Fall Sessions until the new year as the majority of my clients use the images for their Holiday card and so I do not want to spoil the “unveil”.  I think I am safe to share away now!

I held several dates for mini sessions during the Fall as well as many regular sessions.  I met some new families and worked with many existing clients.

If you would like a family photo session this year keep a look out for news on Winter and Spring Mini Sessions.

I love taking time at the beginning of each new year to look back and reflect on the fabulous photography sessions I had during the previous year. Putting together a slideshow to showcase some of my favorite images is such a great opportunity for me to reminisce on those special moments I shared with my clients and their families.
I am constantly reminded how lucky I am to do what I love and of the trust my clients have in me by allowing my camera and I to document special times in their lives.

Five years ago in NYC I met #TheGs and their proud new parents. Fast forward to this Fall and The Gs became big brother and sister to #APA, the most precious little brother. I have seen the Gs grow from tiny preemie newborns to energetic, adorable five year olds. They have taken to the roles of big brother and sister incredibly well. It was a joy to spend time with this family of five (six, including the star of the show, Syke the Yorkshire Terrier)

Last Friday I had the pleasure of meeting up with these two adorable sisters for their annual photo session. Mom and I agreed on the location and I was thrilled with the results. Here in Tarrytown the Fall color is spectacular again this year and I love having the opportunity incorporate the natural beauty into my family sessions.

If you would like images in the leaves before they all disappear please do not hesitate to contact me.

I felt a little like Postman Pat today, only no black and white cat in tow, a black and tan Rottweiler kept me company instead! I had several client orders to package up and deliver around town this afternoon. I love that I still get such a thrill from distributing the finished product to my clients. It makes me feel so satisfied when actual, tangible items are ordered by my clients rather than digital files. Call me old fashioned, but I do worry that ultimately the images on USB flash drives and DVDs are tucked away and forgotten about. There is nothing better than a framed image or photo album filled with images to look back on and enjoy over time.

My other deliveries may not have been seen by their recipients yet, so I do not want to spoil the surprise. More images of REAL printed images coming soon!
