Anniversary & Family Portraits in Penfield, NY

New to the area, this gaggle of girls and their parents love the outdoors. They are excited about the seasons, stomping in puddles and look forward to playing in the snow!

Chelsea and Steve are celebrating their 10th anniversary this year, and coupled with their recent move from Florida, this was the perfect way to celebrate!

The girls are so full of energy, and each has their own personality. We enjoyed hopping and climbing, even roaring in the woods. Besides that - just look at those gorgeous fall colors! 

Thanks for inviting me along on the adventure, and welcome to Rochester! I look forward to seeing everyone again soon!

Matt - Varsity Soccer Goalie, Senior Portraits

First of all, I know I wouldn't want to play soccer against him! At 6'3''  he sure makes an imposing goalie. But off the field, Matt is a really nice guy interested in studying engineering next year. 

For his Victor High School Senior photos, we went to two locations. First, we started in the village of Victor, near some property his grandfather once owned. Matt seemed most comfortable in his hoodie, and I can't blame him.

We finished up around sunset on the soccer field for some epic action shots. The last shot of the day was in the dugout, easily one of my favorites of the session. Check 'em out and wish Matt a great season and senior year!

Maternity in Black & White | Rochester NY Family Photography

This maternity session was quite different than our norm. Sam and Stephanie requested some classic maternity images, and the weather was not cooperating for an outdoor session, so we ended up in our office. I don't do it often, but it can be converted to use in a "studio like" manner. So we did! We got together and made some simple yet elegant, black and white portraits to celebrate baby number two, coming next month. maternity belly shotsmaternity silhouetteexpecting couple

Congrats Sam and Stephanie, I can't wait to meet the little one! Lori

Nikki : Outdoor Holiday Mini Session

This was another Christmas gift session! Nikki's boyfriend is in the service and she thought a portrait of her would be the perfect gift for Christmas this year.  The final product had to be something small that he could take with him, so we ended up making an accordion mini book for him. They are both outdoorsy, enjoying hunting and hiking. (Hard to picture Nikki with a gun!) We photographed Nikki at Corbett's Glen Park in the late fall. It was definitely chilly, but we braved the cold, and had a great time! red jacket in woodswaterfall girl portraitred coat at corbetts glengirl by water red coat
