{ Family Portraits } rochester, ny modern family portrait photographer

I don't normally schedule sessions the day after a long wedding, but I have so few Saturday appointments available that I made an exception this weekend. I'm glad I did because I was able to meet this adorable little family!

Dad made all the arrangements for the session as a gift to mom (awww, I love that!) and I found out at the end that this was their first ever family portrait!

We did some individual portraits of the boys, and they both fell in love with the rocking horse. It's such a great prop because kids under 4 don't stay put for very long otherwise, haha.

In just 30 minutes we got lots of beautiful images! Thanks so much for coming in. Enjoy your sneak peek and I'll be in touch soon!!

{ Colleen & Michael Wedding } rochester, ny wedding photographer

It's the summer of weddings alongside EIEIO Photography! Chelse rocks it out as lead photographer, and I love being her wing man, um wing girl.

Ironically the ceremony was at the same church that Theresa & Mike got married at just a few weeks ago! And as usual when I'm 2nd shooting, I TAKE alot of "off" shots, which means I BLOG alot of "off" shots! So here we go!

A beautiful stop along Lake Ontario for some portraits.

An absolutely stunning reception at Monroe Golf Club

My new favorite shot to get during the bridal party entrance.

Flowers by Bouquets By Bonnie
So beautiful!! I first saw her work this year at Chuck & Cathy's wedding

I spent most of the reception out at the photobooth, which is always a VERY interesting time, lol

I snuck back in just in time to witness a good old cake smashing!

Good times, good times!! I'm technically on vacation this week, but more wedding fun on Friday! Look for the post next week!

{ Cousins } rochester, ny child & family portrait photographer

I love a big family... probably because mine is tiny! I got to photograph 4 beautiful cousins together at their Gramma's house, and there was family everywhere! How cool for these little ones to grow up surrounded by so much love.

The ultimate goal was to get a shot of them together for a big BIG print to hang in Gramma's stairwell. It was a challenge with the ages being 2 months, 4 months, 4 years, and 5 years but we did it! There are a couple of them, but this one is my favorite.

A few of the older boys.

We tried to get all 4 of them for an overhead shot, but little lady wouldn't have it... the boys were patiently waiting and I LOVE this shot!

Thanks for having me out, enjoy your sneak peak!!

{ Family Portraits } rochester, ny modern family portrait photographer

You may remember a couple of these little faces from their portraits last December... they were wearing the newsboy caps and were TOO adorable! (so adorable that the image ended up on my most recent marketing card!)

Well I met up with the whole family this time for some portraits in a park not too far from the studio. It was one of those really sticky days but we stayed in the shade and captured their first family portrait in a good 5 years! (Um, clearly there have been a few additions since that last portrait!)

With a playground in view, the kids were less than interested in the photo session, but we did manage to get some super cute individual shots of them!

I have to share this moment... while we were in the "woods" the kids saw this fallen log and had to check it out. Big brother found some sort of bug and I love how the little ones rushed over to investigate alongside him. Too cute!!

Nice to see you guys again, enjoy the sneak peak!!

{ Family Portraits } rochester, ny modern family portrait photographer

One of my most faithful client families (I think I've photographed them in some capacity 8 times in the past 2 years!) had their first outdoor family portrait session. It was pouring so hard on the drive out that I almost had to pull over... but when we arrived at the park, it was perfectly dry and overcast. Yay!

We started with some of the boys together.

Then we added in the little sister. I love the moment captured here.

Mom & dad's should always get a few of themselves too!

This little lady hasn't given me many smiles in 2010... we're hopeful that 2011 gets better :-) But wait what's this... I'm pretty sure she was only smiling at her big brother over my shoulder but I'll take it!

The boys are smiling literally because it was the last frame I was taking and they'd be DONE, haha!

Enjoy the preview you guys!!

{ Stephanie: Odyssey Academy Senior Portraits Part II } rochester, ny photographer

Stephanie was back last week for the studio portion of her senior portraits. It's fun when the session is split because Steph was able to wear her hair 2 different ways, and bring completely different outfits for TONS of variety!

This pink shirt was so versatile, we used it with 4 different backdrops!

Outfit #2... I love how these bold colors look against the black!

Maybe my absolute favorite image from the session! We had some discussion about whether the converse "matched" the outfit. They're perfect!!!

But we did some bare feet shots too, which is totally classic!

Steph, it was awesome working with you, thanks for coming in!!!

{ Tanya & Paul Wedding } rochester, ny wedding photographer

I'm a bit behind on blogging, it's been a busy month of shooting (woo hoo!). This is a wedding from a few weeks ago, 2nd shooting for my favorite girl Chelse from EIEIO Photography.

On one of those super hot days, Tanya & Paul had a beautiful outdoor ceremony overlooking the Lake. When I'm 2nd shooting, my job is to capture the more random images that add to the story of the day so that's what you'll see here!

I usually hang out with the guys pre-ceremony. They were a lively bunch... they pulled this shot off perfectly! (and guys, YES you could see every one of those bugs in the sky, I had to remove them in photoshop!)

The flower girl & ring bearer were so concerned with picking all of those flower petals up, it was adorable!

A few details:

And the beautiful cake (which was delicious by the way, I ALWAYS sample the cake!)

Although I'm not sure Tanya actually got to taste it here?? LOL

A fabulously fun time as always!

{ 6 month & Cousin Portraits } rochester, ny photographer

These 3 little blonde cuties came in for the baby's 6 month portraits, and the cousins together for the first time. What an easy session!

The older girls are so good with the baby, and you can tell how much she loves them right back!

Each of the girls got some time in the spotlight. An hour session was perfect to get all the different shots they needed, and a few outfit changes too!

And because 6-9 months is a super age (they generally can't crawl or run away from me yet, lol) we did some fun stuff with a tu-tu. Love it!

Thanks for coming to my studio girls - it was truly a pleasure!!!
