George Eastman Museum, Winter Engagement Session: Kyra and Alex

Believe it or not, with a little snow on the ground a winter engagement session can be just as beautiful as any other time of the year. We’re so glad that Kyra and Alex were up for the challenge while they were home for the holidays.

Kyra’s smile widened every time she looked up at Alex. Cuddling close (and a warm cup of coffee) helped to ease the cold in their extremities at their engagement session in Rochester NY at the Eastman Museum. Her red coat gives the images a perfect pop of color and was a great outfit choice for an engagement session during the holidays!

If you’re recently engaged and want to fit your engagement session into the winter - we’re game if you are! Aren’t Alex and Kyra amazing? Enjoy a few of our favorites! (With a cup of coffee if you have it!)

Shannon: Penfield High School Senior Portraits

Shannon is smart and sweet. She enjoys time with friends on adventures all around town and drawing. The crazy part, is that she and her siblings were some of my very first clients over 5 years ago. Now she's part of the Class of 2018, considering going into the field of nursing – and I'm totally aging myself.

We met up with her this month to create some amazing senior pictures for her. We had a lot of fun finding beautiful light and great locations at the George Eastman Museum.

As you can see, we had no trouble with either. It helps that Shannon's awesome smile lights up her portraits and everyone around her.

Thanks, Shannon for a great evening of portraits, and best wishes for a great senior year!

New Years Family Portraits: Rochester NY Photographers

Have I mentioned how much we LOVE seeing our wedding couples with their families? I mean seriously, so. much. fun.

I can't get over how much bigger these kids are from a year ago. They've grown into non-stop full on toddlers, and they made sure to let us know it at their session.

We followed them around letting them be themselves, occasionally trying to capture them as one big family. Slowing the kids down didn't appear to be an option, so we made some cute portraits for their New Years cards while they played.

Can't wait to see how cute they get as the next year goes by!

Holiday Family Portraits: George Eastman Museum

When I showed up to this session wearing a cream sweater, Seana joked that I could be a part of their family photo. It may have been in jest, but this crew certainly knows how to make you feel like part of the family.

The kids were probably all a foot shorter the first time we met, and I last saw Jack when he was a senior at McQuaid. Perhaps the best part of this session was catching up and seeing what everyone is up to these days.

Or perhaps it was encouraging the parents to sneak a kiss in the library while the kids looked on. (Seana was a librarian when she met Brett.)

Or perhaps it was the snowball fight in the gardens at the Eastman Museum.

Or perhaps it was grabbing a hot chocolate in the cafe after the session.

Oh well, I can't decide. But I do know that it is always a pleasure and honor to capture your family story! Thank you for being the amazing people you are.

Sincerely,
Lori

Sara: Pittsford High School Senior Pictures

Sara described herself to us as cheerful, loyal, and a bit shy. She did start out a little shy at the start, but by the end of her senior portrait session she was anything but.

Some of her interests include reading, writing and photography. A girl after our own hearts, we explored the gardens at the George Eastman Museum, books and cameras in hand!

She's just moved here from Switzerland, (yes, the country) and is really looking forward to experiencing what it's like to be a high school senior in an American high school.

What an adventure and an exciting time she's going to have! Have a great year Sara!
