Evan: McQuaid Senior Portraits

Okay I just have to tell you how much I love this family. It was about 5 years ago I first photographed them, and I just adore spending time with them.

Evan is no exception, and we wandered around Genesee Valley Park for his senior portrait session. This took place just a few days before the McQuaid invitational overran the park with thousands of runners. 

When not running, Evan plans to study astrophysics. Check out that tie! How perfect.

Mom and little brother, Owen, tagged along on his session, you'll see them below. Thanks for putting up with me, Evan! You did great :)

Victor NY Family Portraits

This cute little family was so much fun. Colleen, Ron and Joe are up next in the Cobblestone Living Magazine series, and I loved visiting with them!

I learned so much about Joe. He's smart, athletic and involved in everything from lacrosse to soccer to painting, and building RV cars. He's also very photogenic! :)

We wandered all around the yard in the early evening light and even took a few indoor portraits. It was a fun hour we had together. I hope to do it again sometime soon!

Jack & Family: McQuaid Senior Portraits

Jack is a soon-to-be McQuaid graduate. He's a rower on the crew team and an all around good guy. We photographed his high school senior session at the Boat House at Genesee Valley Park. We hung around the docks, on the path and even went inside the boathouse for a few.

What made this session different, was the addition of his mom, dad, and sister into the photographs too. We took a little bit time to create some family portraits for them as well. Jack heads off to college soon, so this was the perfect day to have their family picture updated as well. As the sun went down on the river, the light was perfect for some great images.

Congratulations Jack, and thanks for a great waterfront session! ~ Lori & Erin

Spencer | McQuaid High School Senior Portrait

What are two of Spencer's favorite things?

Crew and their dog Cocoa, and we included them both in his session! Spencer rows for McQuaid crew, so we hit up the boat house at GVP for his session. Cocoa tagged along, and while not a huge fan of the dock, she did really well! She even showed me all of her tricks while Spencer switched outfits. 

Don't you just love enjoying the sunset over the river with your four legged pals? Not much beats that. Have an amazing year Spencer, can't wait to see what you do next!


John: McQuaid Senior Pictures | Rochester NY Senior Photography

John plays third base for the McQuaid Varsity team, loves his Mustang GT and is now officially done with high school! We met up at Ontario Park after he had just finished taking a final exam. It was a bit windy, but lucky John has short hair, and it didn't matter! :) 

The brick backdrop was fun to work around, and John's blue shirt just popped wonderfully against it. And then we switched up outfits and hit the beach. The light blue, button down shirt and the beach setting was the perfect combo.

We even got Samantha, John's sister in a few images to make sure we captured their relationship as siblings before he heads off to college. It was a fun afternoon and I'm thrilled with the results. Congratulations John, and have fun at Florida Gulf Coast University! 


Jack - McQuaid Jesuit Class of 2015 - Senior Portraits

We only needed one location for Jack's session: the boat house. We went to Genessee Valley Park along the Genessee River to photograph senior portraits for the McQuaid coxswain. Jack is a great, easy going kid, and it was my pleasure to photograph him for the, gasp, third time. The first time I met him, he was a freshman and my how time flies! He was wonderful to work with, and pulled some strings to get us in the boat house. We even got on the water, even though Jack is not actually a rower. He did his best and we had a lot of fun.
