{ Family Portraits } rochester, ny modern family portrait photographer

I got to work with this family many times over the past year or so, and we snuck one more into 2010 with a Mini Session. It was pretty cold but sunny that day, and we braved the outdoors for 20 minutes to capture these adorable family photos.

I love the bright fall colors we were able to find despite it being very late in November when most of the trees were bare!

My favorite family shot of the day:

These crazy kids are getting married later this year, and I am so happy to be photographing their wedding!!

Mini Sessions happen just a few times a year, so keep an eye out for a Blog announcement or on my Facebook fan page if you want to get in on the next one!

{ 8 month portraits } rochester, ny modern baby photographer

When I'm so behind on blogging, a few of the details from the session get a little fuzzy in my brain. But I'll do my best here!

I think this little guy was around the 8 or 9 month old mark. It was one of the sessions where mom & dad let me do the "styling". What's styling? They show up with baby in a white onesie and jeans (aka, blank canvas), and let me make all the decisions on backgrounds, props, and additional outfits or accessories. Basically, it's tons of fun for me :-)

Some of my favorites:

Ok, this one I just love, I mean how perfect is the HAT (which says "dude") and his DOUBLE THUMBS UP!

Welcome to 2011 everyone!
