{ Danielle & Brody Wedding } rochester, ny wedding photographer

I'm beginning the project of blogging the dozen or so weddings and countless sessions that I never had time for during busy season!

Event: Danielle & Brody's Wedding
Date: August 28, 2010
Ceremony Location: Esperanza Mansion
Reception Location: same
Lead Photographer: Chelse from Glow Weddings

It's hard to remember now that it's December and snowing like crazy, but this summer was H-O-T. The day of Danielle & Brody's wedding it was bright & sunny, and the kind of day where you almost melt!

I generally spend lots of time with the groomsmen before the wedding when I'm 2nd shooting, but I got to sneak a shot of the girls this time too!

The ceremony was simple and full of emotion.

I love the details of weddings, always some of my favorite shots.

It's a bit of a drive from Rochester, but Esperanza Mansion is great venue to check out if you're a bride-to-be! It's just gorgeous!

{ Alyssa: Brockport Senior Portraits } rochester, ny photographer

Yay I'm blogging! :-)

Alyssa was my only Brockport student this year for Senior Portraits. About a week before the yearbook deadline we finally fit her in and had a super easy & casual session. At 6 ft tall, and stunningly gorgeous, it was like working with a professional model. Fabulous!

I totally lifted this color-block background idea from my friend Chelse!

She can totally rock a hat!

And working the fan for a few!

I had so many amazing seniors this year!! (stay tuned for more blogging over the next few months)

{ Michelle: Greece Olympia Senior Portraits Part II } rochester, ny photographer

Wow it's been a while since I blogged! Blame Facebook, it's so easy to just put a picture or two up!

I have a ton of images to show you from summer weddings, senior & families... they won't be in any particular order, just whatever strikes me at the time.

Michelle was one of my last outdoor seniors. We had to reschedule due to rain, but I'm so glad we did- her day was amazing despite the wind. Keeping it short & sweet, here are some of my absolute favorite images that show the incredible fall colors!

This is THE shot for me! Possibly my favorite senior portrait from the entire season!!

{ Santiaga: Gates-Chili Senior Portraits } rochester, ny photographer

A few more senior sessions are coming up this month, and I'm finally catching up on blogging some from earlier this year!

Santiaga booked very early in the season but purposely chose a date in late September so she didn't have to deal with the 90+ temps we had all summer. Of course it was 85 the day of her session anyways, lol. With a yearbook deadline only days away, I skipped her blog post in order to get her gallery moving asap.

A self-confident girl, she was just totally comfortable with who she is. Here are a few of my favorites to capture all that personality!

{ Michelle: Greece Olympia Senior Portraits Part I } rochester, ny photographer

I love that Olympia pushed their yearbook deadline out this year - November 30th! That gives me a few more weeks to fit some last minute senior portraits in.

Michelle had her studio portion a week or so ago... what can I say about these images except they are SO simple, clean & fabulous! Here are a few of my favorites:

Michelle is a super happy, bubbly girl - but I made her try some serious shots too. WOW, she can rock that look when she wants to!!

I've had lots of dancers in the studio before, but never one with a tutu! She had this specially made for her session, awesome!

Looking forward to an amazing Part II outdoors as soon as this weather breaks!

{ Family Portraits } rochester, ny modern family portrait photographer

As senior portrait season winds down, we roll right into peak season for kids & families!

The forecast was pretty bleak on this day, but we actually had a beautiful fall morning! I met this mom a few years ago in a photography class downtown. We sort of lost touch, and then along comes Facebook. Yay! And since it's virtually impossible to photograph your OWN family session, I was honored when she asked me to take care of it for her.

This first location was just a random spot along a road that I noticed a few days before. Unfortunately we got yelled at for trespassing so I'm not going to mention where it is, lol. But it was beautiful for sure!! (And in case you're wondering, yes this is the real sky, not one I photoshopped in :-)

A short drive to a nearby park and more gorgeous fall colors!

Mom knows I love kids in hats, so she brought along a few to use!

This is the very last frame from the session, and I think it's my very favorite one of them all together! As much as a photographer loves a wide shot to capture the scenery along with the family.... I think a perfectly exposed close up with everyone smiling is what it's all about!

{ Stephanie: Greece Olympia Senior Portraits Part II } rochester, ny photographer

Steph couldn't have had a more perfect evening for the outdoor portion of her senior portraits! Warm but not hot, gorgeous sunlight, and the leaves just starting to turn...

I love when I've been to a park a dozen times and still find brand new spots I never knew existed. Like this one, WOW!!

And a few more of my favorites from the day:

They're beautiful Steph, I'll let you know as soon as I have the gallery up for you!!

I'm feeling a little under the weather today so I'm going to rest! Have a great Monday everyone!
