hudson valley family portrait photographer

Are they on your walls? In albums? Or stored away on computers or phones? Your memories are heirlooms. They are your connection to your ancestors, and your legacy for future generations of your family. My photos make you FEEL. It's a connection when we miss someone, a glimpse of our past, imagery of a beautiful memory, or when you just want a sense of how a moment felt, because it will take you there.




My photos will.

Where are your family portraits?  

We hired Leyla this past winter to take newborn/family pics for us. She was AMAZING!! We never felt rushed, she was super patient with our rambunctious 2 year old, and her photos turned out beautifully. Cannot thank her enough for the amazing job she did. She was easy to work with and very reasonably priced - I absolutely recommend her! Once we received the proofs, she even took time to work with me on layout options to display them in my home! Thanks for everything Leyla!!

Leyla took our extended family photos at Mohonk Mountain house 5 years after our first session with her. She has such a great manner, is very patient (especially with the young kids) and the photos are just wonderful. Thanks again!

Family Portrait Session

We recently adopted a little girl and I asked Leyla to take our first family pictures. We weren't sure how things would go since our daughter is new to our family and we're still getting to know each other. I could not be more thrilled with the beautiful images Leyla captured for us. She was patient, kind, open to suggestions, and able to engage all three of my children. Thank you, Leyla, for the beautiful pictures of my family!
