Tim: Penfield Wrestling & Football High School Senior

If you are looking for Tim, you'll either find him on the wrestling mat, the football field, or hanging out by the bridge with his friends.

As it turns out, the bridge in Ellison Park where he spends his time is also an awesome spot for senior portraits! Between that and the Penfield High School Stadium, we had 2 perfect backdrops. Tim's older sisters were in town, so they joined in the fun too.

This session was everything I hope for in a senior portrait session, great people, fun times and awesome results. See for yourself, and call for your session before it's too late!

Our first photo hike of 2013 was a great success! Old friends, family, and some new friends all came out to share a hike through Ellison Park together. A big thank you to the Rochester Young Professionals for joining the event with us! It was great to meet some new faces, and we hope you'll join us again for our next one.

As wedding and portrait photographers, Lori and I don't always get the chance to just photograph nature.  So as we walked, we got to put a different skill set to good use. We also challenged others with us to think outside the box too. After the event, we gathered a few photographs from those who wanted to contribute, and put together a slideshow of all of our photographs.

Thank you to those who joined us! If you missed this one, keep an eye out for a hike with us in the fall. Until next time, enjoy!

Why come to the Photo Hike?

Why not?  :)  Aside from getting outside and enjoying nature, you can ask us questions. Erin and I are open books and happy to help you decipher your camera menu or conquer the rule of thirds. You can photograph nature, or the other folks on the hike. Sometimes we even use our pets as models. This is a great way to get some practice in, learn a little and afterwards, indulge in some ice cream with friends. Now I bet we have your attention... ICE CREAM!

So come on out, have a good time and take some photos along the way. See you there!

Lori and Erin
