As usual I have a lot of blog catching up to do. I have so many fabulous sessions to share. I am starting off with this beautiful family from Bronxville. Big brother was not too thrilled to be photographed with his little brother, but the powers of persuasion (and a lollipop) won him over in the end.

In honor of UK Mother’s Day this coming Sunday (and the incredible fact that I actually remembered in time this year) I am offering Mommy and Me sessions in the run up to US Mother’s Day. What a perfect gift for any mom, whether you are a new mommy, a Mom preparing to wave your child off to college or a grandmother what better way to celebrate this important holiday than with a selection of images that you are actually in with your children. I know each year when I look back on the photographs I have of my children over the previous 12 months there are only a handful that I appear in. Our children will be so grateful in years to come that we took the time to capture these moments of togetherness.

So I am offering Mommy and Me mini sessions from now until Sunday May 11th 2014.

Here is the information:

  • 30 minute mini session
  • Must take place within 10 miles of 10591 (Tarrytown)
  • Gallery of 10 images for you to select your favorite 3
  • I will email you the 3 digital files and a print release.
    (This means that you can make as many copies of the 3 images as you wish)
  • Session is for up to five family members
  • Price $175

Contact me via email at debbie@debbieallanphotography.com or call 917 582 2468 to book your time slot.

Introducing four month old Ginger. She is a gorgeous Irish Setter. What a lucky girl she is. She has been welcomed into the F family. Four adorable children and a bunny to constantly keep her company. Fun times are ahead!

I put together a slideshow of her session. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed spending time with her. I am looking forward to seeing her grow.

Wishing the sweetest little girl a very happy first birthday. Such a special day. I remember so well hearing the news that you had arrived. The boys and I came into the city straight after school to meet you when you were just hours old. How time has flown and how you have grown into a beautiful, funny little girl.

Cannot wait to see you again soon.

Earlier this week I took a personal day, or should I say a personal morning. It felt so great to allow myself a little “me” time. The boys were in camp and so I planned several weeks ago with two wonderful friends that we would take a tour of Kykuit. Once the home to four generations of the Rockefeller family and now owned and operated by the National Trust for Historic Preservation this incredible six story, rambling house truly took my breath away.

If you ever find yourself in the area during May – October it is so worth taking the time to book a tour. We opted for the Grand Tour, a three hour experience incorporating visiting the garden, the two main floors of the house and the basement, as well as the impressive Carriage House with its collection of vintage cars and horse carriages. The basement is home to Nelson Rockefeller’s vast collection of modern art, including many oversized tapestries of Picasso paintings. Having been to MOMA several days before I commented to my friend that I thought the modern art collection in the basement of Kykuit was more impressive.

Unfortunately photography is not permitted inside the house, however I certainly made up for it by capturing a great deal in the grand gardens.

I cannot wait to go back. Next time I think I will take the Garden Tour, enabling me to gain even more photography time!

Of all of the sculptures in the garden I love this one by Henry Moore the most. Our tour guide made reference to how the young Rockefeller children used to enjoy playing Hide and Seek in the gardens and how hiding in between the two pieces was a favorite hiding place. I can only imagine the adventures the children had in these vast gardens. Hide and Seek could have lasted for weeks at a time!
