Oh Sister, Rochester NY Newborn Photographer

Every newborn photo session is different, and it's more than just the props that make it that way. One of my favorite things about being a newborn photographer is getting to meet all the sweet babies - all different shapes and sizes, temperaments, likes and dislikes. This sweet girlie was precious as could be, with just enough cheeks and chub to make things [...]

Giggly, Rochester NY Children's Photographer

So I named my business Mischief and Laughs. That was 7 years ago (how is that possible?) and at the time, it was exactly how I felt about children. I had three of my own, all under 5 and they were so full of life and vibrancy. I wanted a piece of that goofy giggly fun that children inevitably bring. Fast forward many years and many clients later, and I still[...]

Busy Boy, Canandaigua Family Photographer

You know, some family photo sessions come easy with kids that smile like crazy. Other sessions I have to work for each and every smile. This dude was such a treat to photograph, but I pulled out every single toddler trick in my arsenal, short of jumping into the pond for a few laughs (which if we are being completely honest I've actually done, but it was a c[...]


Our family recently made a trip to Washington DC. It was so moving to be able to teach our children about the sacrifices that brave men and women made along the way, in the name of freedom, peace, and security. The kids are young still, but these lessons are so important. Today is a day off for many, and a day of memorial for many more. Thank you to the f[...]

Teddy Bear, Canandaigua NY Newborn Photographer

Three kids is apparently my magic number right now. Not only do I have three little hooligans of my own, but several of my newborn clients have come in with their third little ones  this month! The baby of the family is certainly something that should be celebrated, and I'm so happy to have had the chance to meet little Ryan and his big siblings. Mischief[...]

New Little Love, Rochester NY Maternity Photographer

A few months back at the very beginning of spring (or maybe the end of winter, depending on how you looked at things) several wonderful photographers and collaborated on a wonderful styled shootout. We had a lovely wedding styled shoot with a sweet couple,  and this gorgeous momma-to-be for maternity photos. I absolutely LOVED the way the session came out at[...]

Fur Baby, Rochester NY Pet Photographer

Babies come in all shapes and sizes. Some are tiny little things. Some are big and chunky. Some are bald as can be, some have full heads of gorgeous hair. And some babies have fur. Kodiak came to me for his newborn puppy photos, and I just LOVE how fluffy and sweet he was. We got him to sleep during our session without much trouble and got several sets in be[...]

Traditions, Canandaigua NY Cake Smash Photos

Baby's first birthday is such an important milestone in a family's life. For 12 months, the parents have cared for their baby's every need, watched their baby learn so many new things, seen so many firsts - first words, first foods, first smiles. A first birthday is absolutely something that should be celebrated! It's not only baby's day, it's the anniversar[...]

Perfection, Rochester NY Newborn Photographer

There's something so precious about a just-born baby. So perfect, so simple, and so sweet. All the little squishy wonderful parts. And the perfect love that fills a family's fuzzyheaded first days with their precious baby is unlike anything else in this world. This little guy was such a perfect peanut, and his big brother and sister were equally sweet. Mo[...]
