Pittsford NY Family Portraits: Pittsford Dairy Farms

It’s the dead of winter, the time of year when it starts to get harder to see the grey skies every single day. Personally, winter isn’t my thing. I prefer spring time and summer to this bundling up.

But then I photograph an awesome family like this and I think “ok, yes, maybe winter can be bright and happy.”

I mean, they were the perfect amount of giggles and hugs and fun with a hot chocolate break in the middle. A little goofy fun mixed with a whole lot of love. They made photographing a winter family portrait session look easy.

And when the snow fell lightly at the right moment, adding just a touch of season to the images - perfection all around.

See for yourself!


Fall Family Portraits in Pittsford NY

As always it's an honor to be asked to photograph a family portrait for another photographer. I love being able to capture beautiful images for someone who rarely gets the time to be in front of the lens. 

However, beautiful family portraits are sometimes hard work to get. As most of you with children know, your babies aren't always camera ready. Erica of Erica Lowenguth Photography, knows what I mean. Again, even a photographer's baby can have a bad day.

Even though her little one wanted nothing to do with me, Erica persevered. She didn't get angry about it. She knew that by doing that, it would only hurt the situation. She was patient and loving, and she hugged them tightly until finally we saw some smiles towards the end. I could learn a lot about being a better Mom from her!

It was hard work, but this Momma's worth it, and deserves to have beautiful images of herself with her babies. Thankfully, I believe we were able to achieve that goal! ~ Erin

Family of 4, plus twins! Pittsford Maternity Sessions


Shortly before my maternity leave began early, I photographed the most wonderful family / maternity session. This family is near and dear to my heart, and has grown by two! We photographed the session before their twins arrived, so now their family photograph looks quite a bit different, and even more wonderful. When I posted the sneak peek, I remember feeling in awe of Tiffany. Pregnant with my first child, I couldn't fathom how she kept it all together. Two beautiful boys, pregnant with twins and going at full speed as much as she could.

Her twins have finally arrived, and so has my little one. As I sit here writing this blog while simultaneously rocking my son to sleep, I'm still inspired as she seems to get it all done.

For now, I'm excited to share these images from their last family session as a family of four. And I look forward to the day when I can photograph them as a family of six! :)
