I feel so fortunate to have made one of the rivertowns the location of our family home and my place of work. We are surrounded by such incredible scenery and steeped in history. Afterall this is The Historic Hudson Valley! When the R family contacted me about photographing their youngest daughters First Holy Communion Celebration at Sleepy Hollow Country Club I was thrilled. Having visited the club as a guest on several occasions I was aware of the grandeur of the former estate of the Vanderbilt Family and its majestic, sweeping views on the Hudson Valley. What a perfect backdrop to an elegant family celebration.

The R Family, their extended family and friends were so delightful to work with. The children had a fabulous time playing out on the pristine lawns, whilst the adult guests enjoyed drinks and hors d’oeuvres on the terrace and were serenaded by the exquisite violin music played by James Graseck. James has played for several R family events over the years, including K’s parents wedding and K’s grandparents 50th wedding anniversary. I could have listened to him for hours on end, he is such an incredible musician. I hope our paths cross again at a future event.

K looked stunning in her communion dress and was a great model for her formal shots with the family.

I had the pleasure of sharing the gallery and a slideshow with K and her mom yesterday evening. I always look forward to spending time with my clients as they view their images for the first time. It has to be one of the most rewarding parts of my job. Just to think I used to miss this when I sent the link to the gallery via email. I cannot imagine doing that now.

Thank you R family for choosing me to photograph your special day. I look forward to working with you again in the near future.
