Evan - Pittsford Mendon High School Senior

Kind, observant, steadfast. This is Evan, a senior at Pittsford Mendon High School.

He is part of the Brighton Police Explorers, guitar player and batman fan, among other things. His session was an adventure off the beaten path near Shoen Place.

Evan is the middle of 5 kids, and the second one I have had the pleasure of photographing. Meet his older brother, George, here. Younger brother, James, came along to provide the laughs and keep him from stiffening up in front of the lens.

Without further ado, here are a few faves from the session! Enjoy!

Michele: Senior Portraits at Village Gate

For Michele's senior pictures, there was no lack of ideas. We started at Corbett's Glen in Penfield with her dog and the waterfalls. The natural setting is always so nice, and we had the place practically to ourselves – which is pretty rare for Corbett's Glen! 

Stop number two was at the Village Gate where, where we used the color and textures to our advantage. Michele is a competitive cheerleader, and made some ridiculous poses look easy. All in all, this was a really fun session with lots of variety!

Check them out and leave some love and congrats for Michele and her senior year of high school! 


Jimmy: Rush Henrietta High School Senior Portrait

It's always a special honor to photograph siblings. It's also a fun challenge. We photographed Rebecca's senior portraits two years ago, so it was great to hear about what she is up to now.

But on to her younger brother Jimmy, who is now a senior. Both Rebecca and Jimmy are runners, so of course we wanted to make sure their two sessions were a little different.

Jimmy's favorite place to run is Mendon Ponds, so we spent a nice Fall afternoon there. He has such a natural, easy going smile. I also really love that red hair!

Enjoy, and good luck in your next race Jimmy!


Justin: Victor High School Senior Portraits

I'd like you to meet Justin, and his adorable lab, Micco!

This right here is what all senior sessions should be... a little bit of adventure, and a lot of fun! We explored the village of Victor and found some great settings for Justin.

We showed off his casual side, got a little patriotic, and then went up the hill to Ganondagan where you can find him running with the cross-country team. He told me about this great view, and we managed to get there right at sunset. Perfect timing. :)

Have a great senior year Justin, and if you are looking for something a little different for your senior portraits, say hello!


Kyle: Fairport High School Senior Pictures

Kyle has many sides, but one great personality - easy going and fun. He breezed through his senior portrait session with ease and even a little goofing off - because, who doesn't want to show off their best Heisman trophy pose whenever possible, right?

What I love about our seniors, is how involved they are in their community and their school. It provides so many awesome options for senior pictures. We covered everything from Kyle's Eagle Scout project at the Fairport food bank, to his signature bow tie look, and even got a little rugby action involved.

Oh, and by the way, a high school senior session with us is not complete until Mom gets in at least one photo in too. LOVE IT!

FAQ: Where should we go for my senior portrait session?

We are location based photographers. This means we shoot anywhere BUT inside a boring, stuffy studio. There's no laser light backgrounds in our lives!

Instead, we photograph our seniors in their favorite places and spaces. Do you love hanging out at the beach, or are you more at home on the ice? Or maybe you love shopping at the Rochester Public Market or cheering for the Red Wings!

Some of you may have a spot or two that fits your personality to the 'T', but others are not always sure. Maybe you know what you want the photos to feel like, but aren't sure where to find that look.

DON'T PANIC!  We've got you covered.

We have created a list of nearly 100 spots around the area that provide unique environments for your senior photos. Whether you want something urban (but safe), formal with columns, or a casual barn setting, we've got the spot. Fields, waterfalls, trails, piers, docks, flowers, you name it, we'll find it.


Still need help selecting the location for your shoot, come on in! This is one of the things we go over at your complimentary consultation. We'll get to know more about you, your interests and personality. We use that information to plan the perfect spots to visit for your senior photos.

Teartiyana: Frontier Field, Public Market High School Senior Portraits

We love making every session we photograph relate to our clients loves. That holds true even with our high school seniors. Teartiyana, or as we now call her, T, was SO much fun to photograph. She LOVES the Rochester Red Wings. So naturally, we were excited, when we learned we were getting Frontier Field to ourselves for her senior session!

From the suites to the dugout, we took advantage of all of the opportunities to knock T's senior portraits out of the park. Yes, I realize that was a terrible joke, but c'mon it was there and just begging for me to say it.

After we finished at the park, we rounded out her session at the Public Market where the murals and the architecture fit her personality perfectly. We even got some really cute pictures with her dog, Seymour, on the field and at the market.

Teartiyana, we had so much fun with you! Enjoy the rest of your senior year!

Hannah | Honeoye Falls Senior Photos

When I first met Hannah, she told me she was looking for something different. She didn't want "normal" senior photos. We were happy to oblige that request!

One of the places she enjoys is the Public Market. Well, the location certainly fit! We went on a day the market wasn't open, and wow are there opportunities! Graffiti, architecture, and texture galore! It's an awesome place and Hannah's an awesome girl! We even got mom involved for some photos, and of course, the dogs too! Such a fun session, thanks Hannah!


Anna | Penfield High School Senior Portrait

This was my first time photographing Anna, but second time with the family dog, Cinnamon. Does he look familiar? If so, it's because you saw him last year on the blog, with Anna's brother, Vinnie. It's always a pleasure to work with repeat clients, and I just love this family.

For Anna's session, we explored the park surrounding the Town Hall in Penfield. The connection for Anna is that she has played on the stage there as part of the high school band, but it was also a beautiful and secluded landscape - which made for excellent for photos! Now that's a win-win!

Anna, you are gorgeous. Go on, rock your senior year, I can't wait to see what you do next! 


George | Senior Photos in Fairport, NY

George is a quiet boy who likes nature and water. For him, a walk along the boardwalk and canal was the perfect fit for his senior photos. He rocked that pink button down, and those eyes sure can tell a story! They don't come much sweeter than this. I really enjoyed photographing George. 

Thanks for choosing Lori and Erin Photography, enjoy your senior year! 



Morgan: Penfield High School Senior

Morgan is just so darn cute and easy going! Her high school senior session started at the University of Rochester because of their amazing architecture. As we arrived, didn't it start to sprinkle? Doesn't matter, we played in the rain!

The rain didn't last long though, so we popped over to Genesee Valley Park for the remainder of the session. It was a fitting spot, being surrounded by the waters Morgan rows in.

Oh, did I mention how sweet she is? For the last shot of her session, she donned her grandfathers sweater and hat in his memory.  I love this idea, and enjoyed swapping stories about our grandfathers as we walked together.

Thanks for a great session Morgan, and have a wonderful year! 


Julia - Senior Photos at Sunken Gardens & Corbetts Glen

We had a perfect morning – not to hot, not to cold for Julia's senior session. We went to both the Sunken Gardens and Corbett's Glen to make some incredible images for her senior portraits. I love those locations because you get a variety of architecture and natural elements to work with. Julia looked incredible in all of her outfits and we had a blast! Julia is also a swimmer and avid kickboxer, so I had her show me a stance at the end of the session. I wouldn't want to get in her way, that's for sure!

Enjoy the photos, and best wishes Julia! -Lori
