Katie & Roman: Wilberts Tree Farm Engagement Session

We ask all of our couples to fill out a little Q&A before their engagement session. It helps us get to know them just a little better, and learn more about their relationship. Now, I hadn't yet met Roman but after reading some of his responses (and busting out laughing) I knew that this would be an amazing engagement session.

Q: What is unique about you as a couple? 
Roman: "We'll have been together for 6 years by the time we get married. Much of that has been spent in a long distance setting which we're both very excited to see come to an end. However, at the risk of sounding cliche, I think it's strengthened us to the hardships that come with marriage and establishing a family and also taught us to appreciate the happy moments together, no matter how small they seem. Also, we rule. Well, mostly her. But she'll be my wife so I guess I rule a little bit too?"

Why yes, Roman, you do rule a little bit.

Their engagement session fit them to a tee. (or tree, hehehe, I'm so punny)  They got engaged in the wee morning hours on Christmas, which also happens to be Katie's favorite time of year. She loves snow, and cuddling together under warm blankets, watching TV with Roman. So a Christmas-y, winter scene at Wilberts Tree Farm in Webster was perfect.

Every single time they looked at each other, their smiles widened and eyes sparkled. And I just can't get over how beautiful they are when they laugh together. And we laughed a lot, so it all worked out perfectly.

Congratulations Katie and Roman - we can't wait to see you again!

Stephanie and Ryan: Webster Park Fall Engagement Session

Ryan and Stephanie love hiking, camping and trying new beers together. They're also fun and adventurous and absolutely love being a part of each other's world.

They fit together like milk and cookies. Like peanut butter and jelly. Like macaroni and cheese. Like...ok, ok, you get the idea. And let's be honest, they should - they're high school sweethearts. They are so comfortable together and with others, that I'd nearly forgotten that I've actually only met them once before.

Photographing their engagement session was so relaxed, natural and fun. A picnic, some beers and a blanket on a gorgeous fall evening? Swoon.... they're clearly my kind of people.

I'm so glad to be a small part of telling their story.

Welcoming Baby A: Webster NY Newborn Session

This little munchkin is the newest member of our membership program. She's less than a month old, but already has her parents wrapped around her sweet little fingers. It's amazing how fast those first few weeks of life go.

While we were at their home in Webster, NY for their newborn session she was perfectly content but not necessarily ready to sleep the afternoon away. So, we took advantage of as many of the sleepy moments that we could but also let her be alert and awake when she wanted.

And since it was clear, she didn't want to sleep we also took time to just let her cuddle in their arms where she felt most warm, safe and loved.

In the end, isn't that where we all really want to be?
