A unique Session Experience, made of Dreams.
Nestled in the lush Mountain's of the Catskills is a New York City getaway called The Deer Mountain Inn. This is where I am now located and it is a dream. Feeling reinvigorated and inspired to shoot again, I am opening a few slots every month, beginning in September, for a new photo experience I am calling "The Wilds."

What to Expect:
Things not included:
Travel. I highly recommend driving. This whole experience can really feel like an adventure if you want it to be! Bring a friend, blast music with the windows down and feel the air change as you leave the city behind!
An easy 2.5 hour drive from the city, this is one of the most incredible places I have ever been and I am excited to bring you in on it.
What does a "Wilds Session" mean?
I am finally in my photographer dreamland: nature and abandoned buildings abound. The most beautiful natural light lends an atmospheric glow to any photograph, rain or shine. This session is a much lighter experience than my previous soul sessions. Plan to spend our shoot roaming around the woods or waterfalls, there is a good chance you will be laying among foliage or picking your way around old broken down buildings. The photos we create will be inspired and evoked by the atmosphere and surroundings the world gives us- which, trust me, is epic and endless.
How much time should I prepare to be there for?
A Day Trip Session will take a full day. Please allow for extra time cushioning on either end for travel and general play (this place has a way of making you forget about time.) Plan to leave the city early in the AM to get here by 11am so we can start shooting by 12pm.
How do I get the "Getaway" Upgrade?
If you would like to make a "weekend" out of your session and want to stay the night with us, please note this in the message box when you book. The initial payment will be for the Day trip session, I will be in touch at least 5 in advance of the date to let you know if a room will be available or not. If a room is available, you will be able to check in after our session and enjoy Deer Mountain Inn as a guest! We have beautiful grounds to lounge in or hike in, fireplaces galore, as well as a luxurious guest lounge and complimentary breakfast in the morning. Check out is 11am. The upgraded session payment will be applied during checkout.
What is the Mini Day trip Session?
Think of the "Mini" as a daytrip to the Catskills where you just happen upon a photo session. As long as you are ready to shoot at 5pm, you can spend the day doing any number of things in the area. There is beautiful hiking, biking, lake- lounging, mountain top viewing, waterfall watching, delicious food- goings on around here and you can do anything you'd like until our shoot! The day is yours to roam in, the late afternoon through sunset with be our time to create stunning images together. The upgrade is also available for this package, should you like the option of staying a night with us. If so, please note this in the message box below and I will let you know the upgrade price.
Available Session Dates are viewable in the Calendar below beginning in September.
