portraits at the peekamoose / by Ashley Brown

I'm back from the Cape a married woman, and needing to catch up on some much overdue blog posts! I've been so excited to blog this particular set.

One of my clients owns the FANTASTIC Peekamoose Restaurant & Tap Room in the Catskills. The last time I traveled down, I was marveling over how beautiful the restaurant and property were. M. and her husband have tons of family members and  valued customers, so we thought it would be great to host a mini session event for them. Thus, baby brunch was born.

I don't think it gets much better than photographing families in a gorgeous setting, plus being able to indulge in a delicious brunch buffet (complete with mimosas!). I got to meet some really great families and adorable little ones. Here's a sampling of some of the images.

Thanks so much, M. & D., for an amazing day, and letting me use your beautiful restaurant and grounds! And blog readers, it is a MUST to make the trip down to the Peekamoose for dinner. It only takes me an hour and a half to get there and it's a super straight shot from Albany (only two turns!) They serve locally grown foods and have a wonderful selection. Plus, they are kid friendly, with a children's menu AND the coolest playroom I've ever seen. So check them out!
