Getting for the Big Day was a celebration between close friends and family full of happy tears and laughter...

Personalized details added unique touches...

The Bride was so certain about her Groom, even her shoes said "I do!"

A glorious venue with ornate checkered flooring helped to set the stage for a beautiful ceremony.

All the while, they couldn't take their eyes off each other...

Talented friends and family added their personal touches to this special day.

At the Brides' request we did some casual yet modern bridal party shots...

Just the gals...

Now the guys. (Check out those funky socks!!)..

There's just something about this picture...

A few of just the Newlyweds!

Thanks to the Brides' Father, we were able to capture a couple unique shots with his cool car.

Then we decided to head down to the horse pastures. Shooting with long lenses allowed for some private moments between just the two of them, like they didn't know I was there...

The rich green pasture brought out the vibrant yellow in the Brides' bouquet.

With all of the rainy weather this Bride even came prepared with rain boots! This amazing shot is being entered into the NY State Fair Photo competition!!!

What gorgeous hardwood floors at this reception venue, with elegant tall white ceilings. Everyone had a great time...

With a room filled with great food, fun and laughter, who would've thought I'd see the best dance move EVER... What a doll!

What a beautiful couple during their cake cutting.

A few of the perfect details...Every photographers' favorite part!

Special keepsakes made memorable touches...

With two rings and one shared promise their happily ever after began...

Now onto more and more weddings as Summer 2011 continues!!! Book us to capture the start of your Happily ever after today!

{ Newborn Baby Art - baby boys } rochester, NY newborn photographer

Along with this Springs' beautiful newborn baby girls came adorable baby boys...

This 2 week old little fellow arrived awake and ready! He didn't at all mind the camera, and stayed alert which resulted in some great shots!

Moms & dads: if you want to be in a few shots with baby, I recommend wearing black/dark color clothing as seen here. It converts to black & white beautifully!

He was a great little model with his arms and hands placed just so, like he knew what he was doing!

And finally, just when we thought he wasn't going to fall asleep.... perfection!

Having arrived a few weeks premature, this 3 week old little guy was still tiny!

One of my favorite newborn set-ups ever, love that earthy fringe.

I am so excited to be using this handmade cradle in my newborn sessions. My dad made it for me when I was a little girl, to use with my Cabbage Patch Dolls :-)

What better way to show off your newborn baby than with a custom designed 10x10 flush mount album! It is something to cherish forever and is available at a discounted price when purchased with Print Collection #1, definitely something to check out at your session!

Next month is going to be pretty unbelievable with a whole bunch of brand new babies on their way, I cannot wait to see what we come up with next... Can you? Stay tuned for more excitment and new babies in bloom this summer!
