Home Based Family Portraits in Fairport, NY

The youngest just turned one, not that you need an excuse to celebrate your family! These guys invited me over, and we played inside while it snowed like crazy outside. Each of the kids showed me their favorite toy, they read me a book and played a little piano too.

I may not have kids of my own, but I sure feel blessed to be able to spend so much time with them anyway. Kids have this ability to take the mundane and make it magic. I hope they, and all of us adults too, hold on to that forever.

Say hello to some of my Fairport neighbors! Thanks for inviting us into your lives. We really do love it!


Alaina - 6 Month Session at Home

Little Alaina is just full of smiles! It was such a pleasure to spend some time with her in front of the Christmas tree for her first Christmas and also, her six month photo session.

She may be young, but she was definitely ready to rip open some gifts! She also loved when her momma read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. Alaina is a lucky girl with two awesome parents and a wonderful nana to spoil her. And oh my cuteness, she's definitely got her momma's hair, look at that!

I look forward to watching her growth continue! Until next time,

A Winter Themed Family Session at the Holidays

What a joy it is to spend the holidays with your family. When you've got folks living in three different states, together in the same room, it's really something special. And it was my pleasure to document the gathering of this really fun family.

There wasn't a dull moment as they packed in the memory making. After making a few portraits, things turned to a more documentary style of photography as Lily wrapped presents with grandma, and read books with her grandpa and uncle. We even got outside with the snowmen and left some treats out for the local deer. 

It felt like I had known everyone for years. What was captured in less than two hours, will now be tangible memories to take back to their homes, hundreds of miles apart.

To Kirsten and the whole gang, thank you for choosing me to capture this moment in your family's lives. Enjoy the photos, and I look forward to seeing you again next year!


Including Hobbies & Friends in Senior Portraits | Rochester NY Senior Photographers


Including hobbies in a senior portrait session is a lot of fun! It provides not just props, but actions. We had students with wide ranges of interest this year, including cars (both fixing and driving), guitars, reading, writing, sewing, biking and more. We also got to include some friends and family members along the way. Here are a few examples of some unique senior photos we created this year.

Clara at 1 Year Old : Childrens Photography, Syracuse NY

Clara is one of my favorite little people to photograph. I can say that, she's my niece. :) I have watched her grow from a bump in the belly, to a sleepy little newborn, to a playful one year old. I've photographed her indoors, outdoors, with her dogs, with her books – she loves books, with pumpkins, and with her family. For this one year old session, we hung out around the house playing with her favorite toys and Halloween costumes. How can you resist this sweet little one year old? bumble bee costume

Clara is a joy to be around, and I can't wait to see who she will become. For a look back at Clara's other sessions, click below.

Candid Family Portraits: Brighton NY

Three brothers: ages 2, 5 and 7. If that sounds like chaos to you, it was. But, it was fun chaos! Playing with these guys was a workout, and it was worth it. They love their bikes, the playground, reading and (my favorite) parkour. Yes, parkour! Google defines Parkour as "the activity or sport of moving rapidly through an area, typically in an urban environment, negotiating obstacles by running, jumping, and climbing." I've seen this done before on YouTube, but usually with young adults, not kids! I was quite impressed as they showed me what they had learned to do. We also had some races, tickle-fests, and played fetch with the dog. All in a days work. Here is a little peek into the day. Enjoy!
