This adorable family found themselves blessed with gift certificates during their baby shower for a newborn shoot. When this cute little guy made his arrival, it was my honor to capture their new family of three! These images will always be cherished, and far outlast even the nicest baby clothing or furniture. I was so happy to be a part of such a thoughtful and enduring gift!

I have yet to see a newborn smile as often as this little guy did! Welcome to our world sweet boy!

This adorable couple were scheduled for a cozy late Oct. photo shoot, which in Western, NY usually means – cold! A bit of a chill can sometimes lends nicely to the coziness of a shoot, and naturally encourage cuddling and the warmth that makes an image so striking. So we were prepared. The weeks prior to this session had been downright freezing (literally), and recent wind/rain storms had stripped most of the fall colors away. It was such an extraordinary surprise that on the day of this shoot it was 75 and sunny. So warm!! We also found some of the most beautiful hidden leaves to enjoy and it was such a treat to do so with out the bulk of winter clothing.

In the middle of our time together, we made our way up to the beautiful Mazza Chautauqua Cellars, (of which Anna’s brother is the manager). The architecture and feel of the place became a perfect fit for our remaining time together. What a fun couple!

This family is so beyond beautiful!  After capturing sweet little Kylie two years ago, it was so exciting to see how much she has grown, what a strunning little girl!  This shoot was extra special, because I was able to meet her new handsome little brother, and capture them all as a family of four!  Here are just a few early edits, as I begin working through their images …

It is always important, that my clients feel their images represent their interests and personalities, especially so with HS Seniors! These pictures will represent them for years to come! I am reminded of this every time I enter my parents house. Lifestyle photography was not popular back then, (13 years ago) and I cringe at what the options were back then. I would like a “re-do!”
We are never afforded the chance to go back in life, not for any occassion. So whenever I shoot a family with their current dynamics and ages, a child’s milestone, a newly engaged couple, or a HS Senior embarking on a new phase of life; I remember the privedge and importance of this moment, work extremely hard to make the experience memorable, and the results stunning and timeless.

Devin is a volunteer fireman, at the Panama Fire Deptartment – something he is clearly passionate about! He also enjoys embracing his “country” side – riding his horses, and enjoying the outdoors. So we decided to plan a shoot ecompassing each. Devin’s father was kind enough to pull out a fire truck for us, and was so patient as I had him manuever this massive vehicle into just the “right spot”, in order to utlize the best light. I had a good time capturing images of Devin in his element – highlighting his strength and passion for the career he intends to pursue.

Following, we drove down to his grandmother’s beautiful home. We enjoyed the shade of their tree’s, and the fun of the creek, rocks, and bridge for an overall gorgeous afternoon. 2013-01-28_0016.jpg 2013-01-28_0009.jpg 2013-01-28_0010.jpg 2013-01-28_0012.jpg 2013-01-28_0015.jpg 2013-01-28_0013.jpg 2013-01-28_0017.jpg 2013-01-28_0020.jpg 2013-01-28_0018.jpg 2013-01-28_0021.jpg 2013-01-28_0019.jpg 2013-01-28_0022.jpg 2013-01-28_0007.jpg 2013-01-28_0024.jpg 2013-01-28_0027.jpg 2013-01-28_0023.jpg 2013-01-28_0028.jpg 2013-01-28_0035.jpg 2013-01-28_0029.jpg 2013-01-28_0030.jpg 2013-01-28_0031.jpg 2013-01-28_0034.jpg 2013-01-28_0032.jpg
