Hudson Valley Family Portraits

Family portraits don’t have to be torturous. You don’t have to wear matching outfits. You don’t even have to look at the camera. Joshua approaches his portrait work in the same way he does weddings, by using as much natural light as possible and doing everything he can to make you feel at ease so you can smile naturally. 

We love shooting families and couples who are staying at nearby Airbnbs or hotels in the Hudson Valley or Catskills! If you live in NYC and need a recommendation for the best cabin or farmhouse for family photos, just get in touch!


We have two options for family portraits. Mini sessions and full sessions. Mini sessions are about 20-30 minutes long and best for infants and surly husbands. They are only available within 30 minutes of Newburgh. Full sessions are usually between 1-2 hours and include a mixture of posed and candid images. With that amount of time we can usually do outfit changes, multiple locations, and take a break for a tantrum if needed.

We also have a subscription option available that is particularly popular with families with young kids. With a monthly subscription, you can book up to three sessions a year. That is usually a spring, summer, and fall session for most families. You will also receive a print credit that you can apply towards albums or prints for your wall.

Are You Ready to Begin?

Reach out and tell us a little about your family below. Who will be involved in the shoot? What’s their style? Where would you like the shoot to happen? Why a portrait session now?

Most of our weekends between May and November are booked for weddings, but most weekdays and offseason weekends are flexible. Our family portrait work is primarily shot on location, but our Newburgh studio is also available for headshots, newborn photography, and other types of portraiture that are better suited for a controlled setting.
