Genesee Brew House Engagement Session: Jill & Travis

In talking about their engagement session, Jill asked me if I had any tips on how to be more natural in photographs. I gave her some ideas, but I’ll be honest - they didn’t need them.

From the very start at their engagement session at Highland Park, Jill and Travis were perfection. Laughing, snuggling, and more laughing. Perfection despite the bone chilling temperatures that often accompanies a winter engagement session.

After a stop at the park, we hit up the rooftop at the Genesee Brewhouse. The wind was chilly, but they danced and flirted, and laughed some more. They bring out each other’s silliness, which is exactly their natural state.

I’m already looking forward to their wedding day, just to see them laugh again.

Highland Park, Rochester NY Vow Renewal: Juanita & Ronald

It’s been 30 years of ups, downs and all arounds, but here they are. In the same spot where they said the original wedding vows, 30 years ago. The trees are a little taller, their love a little stronger. Surrounded by their closest friends and family, they shared their love publicly and yet intimately.

I felt honored to be there as a witness to this moment. This renewal, this promise repeated. We often see the start of a marriage, the first few amazing hours of it. It’s lovely to revisit that love over time and see how it matures.

Thanks for letting us bear witness to your journey. Wishing you 30 more!

Alexander: School of the Arts Senior Portraits

Alexander is a vibrant personality. He is kind, warm, and theatrical. 

He was referred to our studio by his cousin, Grace, so I knew this would be a fun session! We explored the Sunken Gardens and Highland Bowl together to make some senior portraits that would fit his characteristics perfectly.

Check them out - oh and wish him luck as the LEAD in Little Shop of Horrors this year! Congratulations Alexander!

Mindy & Ryan plus 1! Rochester NY Family Photos

I have to admit, I was very excited to work with Mindy and Ryan. Lindsey, one of our Class of 2016 Seniors, gifted them a session. And they choose to use as a beautiful maternity session.

While working with them, I discovered that Lindsey also introduced this couple: her brother, and her teacher. Two years ago they were wed, last year they bought a house, and this year they will bring a baby home! 

Mindy and Ryan are very excited to bring a new Broncos fan to the world, and doesn't she look amazing in that dress? Check out a few favorites, and leave them some well wishes in the comments! Many congratulations to two wonderful people, I can't wait to meet the little man!

Kyle & Alicia, and Caleb too : Rochester NY Engagement Session

2015-02-02_0015

My baby brother's gettinnnng marrrieeed! Eeee! Yay! Woo hoo! Sorry - I'll try to rein in my excitement a little bit. Woot! (Whispered).

Seriously though, in June my brother Kyle is going to marry Alicia. Together with my awesome nephew, Caleb, they kept us laughing and having fun on our way through the Lamberton Conservatory for their engagement-slash-family session. I can't believe how fast Caleb's growing up in front of our eyes, and am so excited to see where the future leads him.

To my brudder and his beautiful fiance - I'm so excited for you both, and am so honored to be a part of this time with you. Love you! ~ Erin

Jamie - Penfield NY Senior Portraits

Jamie wanted an outdoor experience, and choose the Sunken Gardens as the location for her senior portraits. She was a natural in front of the camera, and fell into her own unique poses so easily! She looked great in all of her outfits, which fit in with the surrounding flowers and stone work so wonderfully. Jamie also brought along her friend, Melissa, so we captured a few images of these best buds together as well. This helped them each relax a little, because now they could feel goofy in front of the camera together :) We'll put the spotlight on Melissa next time, but for now, enjoy these images of Jamie! blog_0212.jpg

Thanks Jamie and Melissa for hanging out with me! Have an awesome senior year. -Lori

Emily : Fairport Senior Photos

Our first senior from the Class of 2015, and we couldn't be off to a better start! Emily was a joy to work with and we had a blast at Highland Park! Emily is going to be a senior at Fairport High School and describes herself as casual, opinionated, fun and supportive. She is part of a leadership group which I think is fantastic. "I work with students and we do things for the community and encourage kids to be drug free." Beautiful on the inside and out, love it. She is also into fashion, and I have to say, I think she liked modeling!

Way to rock it Emily!

Have a great summer! Lori
