I am thrilled to announce that I will be offering Cape Cod Family Photo Sessions again this year. I had so much fun with the families I worked with last year and their feedback was so encouraging that I cannot wait to capture your family having fun on vacation in Cape Cod this summer.

I am currently offering sessions on Monday 24th – Thursday 27th August and Sunday 30th August – Saturday 4th September 2015.

Prints and other products are available for purchase.

A little “Throw Back” post today. I just discovered this storyboard and the beginnings of a post from two years ago in my draft folder! Not sure what happened, but figured these two brothers are too cute to stay in my drafts!

This session was so much fun. I hadn’t worked with the family before but the boys warmed up to me fast and were so great in front of the camera. The brotherly bond they have is so adorable and is evident in these images.

Looking back at this session made me realize that we preserved the “soon to be forever changed” landscape. A week or two after this the cranes started to be put into position for the pile driving for the new bridge!

Thanks for the little trip down memory lane today.

Following on from yesterdays maternity session on the blog here is the little guys first photo session. Once again mommy had her hair and makeup beautifully styled by the incredibly skilled and wonderful Anabelle LaGuardia.

Baby Lyle was an absolute rockstar throughout his first photo session.  It was a pleasure to spend the morning with him and his proud parents, who have taken to their new role so seamlessly.  Relaxed, calm parents make for the most amazing sessions.  This was no exception.

I was able to incorporate many personal items into the session, which I always love to do.  We used a beautiful homemade blanket gifted to them for baby Lyle, a toy that had been Mommy’s and her sister when they were babies and then the last element we captured was the friendly rivalry when it comes to baseball teams!

I am so thrilled that this cute little guy lives in the neighborhood.  I look forward to watching him grow.

 

I was thrilled to be contacted via the Facebook page 10591. I live in the most amazing community and the power of social media enabled Michelle and I to connect. I feel so fortunate to have been given the opportunity to work with Michelle just prior to the arrival of her first baby. Little did we know he would arrive sooner than expected. In hindsight we were lucky to have had the time to schedule this breathtakingly beautiful maternity session. Michelle was positively glowing and so radiant.

Prior to her session with me she had engaged the services of Anabelle LaGuardia, a fabulously talented local hair and makeup artist. I recommend any client to take the time to have your hair and makeup done by a professional prior to your next photo session. Michelle looked incredible throughout her session and not a hair out of place even after several clothing changes.

Look out for Baby Lyle’s newborn session on the blog soon.

It was an absolute pleasure to photograph this beautiful family last week in one of my favorite locations. Finally the weather is warming up enough to venture down to the Riverwalk for photo sessions again. It has been a long hiatus due to the snowy, chilly winter. As much as I loved being outdoors and enjoying Mother Nature this winter not too many clients opted for outdoor sessions! It feels wonderful to be consistently outside again. Spring in the Hudson Valley is absolutely breathtaking.

If you would like a Springtime family photo session contact me Debbie@debbieallanphotography.com

Spring has sprung, time is flying by and before you know it the school year will be coming to a close.  College acceptance letters are arriving in mailboxes all over town.  Stop and take a moment to make some memories before its too late!

For a limited time only I am offering 45 minute sessions for $250. This includes 10 digital files.

FOR THE FIRST 3 SESSIONS BOOKED (AND PAID IN FULL) I WILL BE INCLUDING A BEAUTIFUL ACCORDION BOOK FEATURING IMAGES FROM YOUR SESSION.

Having the opportunity to spend time with our family on such a joyous occasion was truly magical.  The brides grandparents were very proud of their beautiful granddaughter.  During cocktail hour the guests were also treated to locally made icecream by Katy Rodgers in Fintry.  The boys loved their treat.  Rory and Callan, nephews of the bride looked absolutely adorable in their kilts.  They both did a great job as pageboys.  I was very fortunate to have access to one of the guest bedrooms that overlooked the grounds of Gaen House.  It was the perfect place to get an aerial group shot of all the guests.  I even managed to be in some of the photographs thanks to Uncle Gordon.

2014 was the best year yet for Debbie Allan Photography.  I have enjoyed looking back on the images I captured throughout the year.  It is impossible to narrow it down to pick just one favorite image.  I have put together a slideshow of some of my favorites, which I hope you will enjoy.

Highlights of the year include photographing two weddings, both of which held great sentimental value for me.  I also loved the beach sessions in Cape Cod in August, and hope to schedule more of those for this coming summer.  I tested the water in the Senior photography market and loved getting my feet wet.  I hope to photograph more local Seniors this Winter – look out for  special promotion relating to that very soon.

I met several new babies during the course of the year.  Each of them born to families I had previously worked with.  I ended the year working very close to home – my next door neighbors were my last clients on 2014!

I am excited for 2015.  I have plans in the works for some new and fresh ideas for Debbie Allan Photography and look forward to sharing them with you.See more at Sleeklens’ actions

As Winter is rapidly approaching I am finding myself reflecting more and more on the wonderful summer we had this year.  Trying to warm myself up on a virtual level I guess.

Our summer was filled with many memory making experiences.  One of the big events for our family was travelling back to UK to visit family and friends.  The highlight of our time there was Jaime and Bryan’s beautiful July wedding in Alloa, Scotland.  The weather was something that had caused me to lose a little sleep in the run up to the big day.  Rain in July in Scotland is commonplace and I was stressing over the fact that we may not be able to photograph any images outdoors.  Well, I did not need to worry!  We woke up to the most gorgeous, picture perfect day.

The wedding ceremony and reception took place at the stunning early 20th-century Arts and Crafts style mansion, Gaen House in Alloa.  I joined Jaime and her bridal party early in the morning to capture Jaime’s final hours as a single woman.  She was in the company of her mum and two sisters and was surrounded with love and calm.  It was a delight for me to see the three sisters together on this special occasion.  I have watched them grow up from young children into beautiful, kind and caring adults.  The morning went by in the blink of an eye and before we knew it, it was time to head downstairs to for the wedding ceremony.

 

Bryan and his bestman were patiently awaiting the arrival of their guests.  Fortunately Jaime did not keep everyone waiting too long.  The ceremony was both sentimental and hilarious.  The minister entertained everyone in stand up comedy style!  It certainly helped to calm the nerves of the bride and groom.

Following the ceremony the guests enjoyed the cocktail hour on the terrace and lawn of Gaen House.

More images from this celebration very soon…….
