We are official in the midst of Winter here in New York, although some days it is hard to believe with the crazy fluctuations in temperature. As a photographer I LOVE this time of year. There is something so amazing and unique about the light, it is PERFECT for portrait photography. That is why I came up with the idea of offering MINI PHOTO SESSIONS for the months of January, February and March.  This is a perfect time to update your family portraits.  They would make fabulous Valentine or Easter gifts for your family.

Recently engaged?  How about an opportunity to mark the occasion with a mini photo session.  The images would be ideal to use on your save the date cards!

Here are the details:

30 minute session time

Up to six family members (bring the family dog/s to join in the fun)

The price: $225

Session fee will include 6 high resolution digital files with print release.

Bundle up in cosy, gorgeous knitted hats, scarves and mittens.  Bring a blanket and snuggle up for a unique portrait session.   If it ever snows again I have a FABULOUS five man toboggan that I am itching to use in a photo session.

The best part, I will provide hot chocolate and marshmallows at the end of the session.


So what are you waiting for?  Email me at debbie@debbieallanphotography.com to book your session today.

Dates and times are subject to availability.  Session must take place within 10 miles of Tarrytown, NY.



It is hard to believe that 2011 is behind us. It is so true that time seems to go faster each year. It has been another fantastic year for Debbie Allan Photography. I always enjoy creating my end of year slideshow, as it is wonderful to have the opportunity to reflect on each of the sessions I did and the wonderful people I encountered throughout the year.

Wishing you and your family a very Happy New Year. I am looking forward to 2012 and the photographic journey. I cannot wait to reconnect with clients and I am excited to meet many new families too.

One of my New Years resolutions was to ensure I book a family photo session for my family. I did not do that in 2011 and I regret it. I want to be able to look back at images of my family in years to come, that include me!

I just received a beautiful Thank You card in the mail. What perfect timing as we approach Thanksgiving. I am so thankful to clients and friends who take the time to put in writing just what my photographs mean to them. A dear friend of mine had to say goodbye to her four legged friend, Scout last month. It was tough for the whole family, but most of all for Katie. I had a small collection of images I had taken of Scout last Spring and was thrilled to be able to share them with Katie and her family. At this time of great sadness the memories helped them mend just a little.

Here is what the note said “It was so very thoughtful of you to print those amazing photographs of Scout for me. We have the beautifully mounted one on the mantle – it really helps me to have that in the living room with us! I need to do a Scout scrapbook and I really have no lovely photographs of her calm, lovely old age. Most are her young and extremely silly. the graceful, peaceful old dog is now captured for me – so important! Again your kindness and artistry are much appreciated!”

I cried when I read that for the first time. Scout was such a sweetheart and such a character too. She is missed by so many.

I had the pleasure of meeting sweet little Clover on Friday. I always go silly for puppies, but nothing prepared me for just how silly Clover would make me. I just about melted when I stepped out of the car and was greeted by the cutest little fur ball I have ever seen.

Cameron was lucky enough to come along for the ride and was a wonderful assistant. He got lots of wet puppy kisses. We both had a hard time saying goodbye! I have a feeling that it will not be much longer before I cave on the NO PUPPY front! Did I just say that out loud?????
