{ Baby Portraits } Rochester, NY modern portrait photographer

One of my favorite little guys was in this week for some portraits! I saw him at about 2-1/2 months, then again at 4 months, and now almost 8 months. Mom brings him in for seasonal portraits rather than sticking to the traditional milestone ages!

Isn't he the cutest little golfer you've ever seen??

Shaking it up a bit with the green background, which I LOVE and rarely get to use. I wanted to show how little he is still, I think this shot captures that feeling!

And of course you can never go wrong with a baby in a basket, lol.

The weather is getting nicer and hibernation should be over soon - schedule your spring portraits early for best availability. Just TWO saturday's in April still have open slots!!

{ Family Portraits } Rochester, NY modern family portrait photographer

I love meeting new families! Today was a BIG family... 5 kids ranging from 13 yrs down to 8 months. It was just a 30-minute session to accomodate the younger ones attention span, but you'd be surprised what you can accomplish in that time! (ok maybe I ran a little over that, I usually do, lol)

The whole group together, looking at me, yay!!!

And some individual shots of each kid from oldest to youngest:

Cutie patootie!! And another fabulous pair of dresses from Children's Place - they're on fire this season!

Great to meet you guys, thanks for coming in today!!

{ Engagement Portraits } rochester, ny modern portrait photographer

For some reason I've had a lot of out of state brides over the past few years- Boston, Seattle, Maryland, even ALASKA. Often times we don't have a chance to meet before I'm officially signed on as their wedding photographer, so I'm always excited when they sneak into town for a few days to finish up their planning and we finally put faces to names. (Ok with Facebook usually we know what eachother look like, but you know what I mean :-)

Theresa & Mike are from Virginia and they're getting married in Rochester this June. They have a wonderfully simple day planned and I can't wait to hang back & capture all of the great candid moments.

We were hoping for better weather today to do some of their E-session outside, but it was rainy & cold so we just rolled with the studio stuff. They came well prepared with a suitcase of outfits! (LOVE that, it gives me so much to work with).

I think we really captured their personality as a couple today, check out a few of my favorites:

It was so awesome to meet you guys today! I'll see you in just a few short months!

{ Sibling Portraits } rochester, ny modern child portrait photographer

I love this time of year when spring is finally in the air, even if there's a little snow still on the ground. Good weather is on the horizon, and adorable spring clothes are in all of the stores.

A fabulous outfit adds so much to your portaits, so it's always fun when a client asks for some input before their session. These little ladies looked just perfect and were sooooo cute together!

Sometimes the outtake moments are some of my favorites:

A couple of individual portaits:

Even though 2 is a hard age for sitting still, we got several really adorable images of the girls together. Love this one!

It was so great to meet you girls today - have a wonderful weekend!

{ Hunter's Hope } Rochester, NY modern portrait photographer

Since I started my business, I've always looked for opportunties to use it in a charitable way at least a few times a year.

This year I'm proud to be working with Hunter's Hope, the organization in memory of Jim & Jill Kelly's son. They are hosting a Candlelight Ball in Rochester on Friday, March 26, 2010 at the Radisson Hotel Rochester Riverside. I will be participating in the Chinese auction with a $225 session/print package donation.

If you are affiliated with an organization looking for support, let me know and I'd be happy to check it out!

Hunter’s Hope Foundation was established to address the acute need for information and research with respect to Krabbe Disease and related Leukodystrophies. In addition, we strive to support and encourage those afflicted and their families as they struggle to endure, adjust and cope with the demands of these fatal illnesses.
