About Gray

About Gray

Hi! I’m Gray and I am the owner and photographer behind Simply Gray Photography.

I am a New York and Melbourne Australia based lifestyle photographer specialising in custom portraits of newborns, babies, children and families. Currently I am based out of Goshen, New York in the beautiful Hudson Valley.

As a mother of 3 amazing young children, I understand how quickly our children and family grow up. Personally, I know there is not enough hours in the day to capture and process all the beautiful moments we want to hold on to. For this reason, I am passionate about helping families capture their special memories and creating beautiful portraits for them to enjoy now and for decades to come.

With a busy family, I know how life gets busy and we can easily forget to slow down, appreciate our loved ones and have some good old fashioned family fun. Also for this reason, I am dedicated in helping families fill their homes with beautiful smiles, cheeky grins, big hugs, belly laughs, tickles and other tender moments. So when life gets that little bit nutty, we can lose ourselves in these moments: breathe in a little deeper and remember what made us fall in love with that cheeky little toddler who just washed the toilet with your toothbrush or drew a beautiful permanent rainbow on the wall.
