Baby Bliss, Rochester NY Newborn Photographer

The first time you hold your baby in your arms is absolute magic. It's a love unlike anything you've felt before - raw and guttural. The fierceness of that mama-bear love is something I can't explain in words. One of my favorite things about photographing newborn babies is that I get to see a bit of that mama bear love shining through the tired sleeplessness[...]

Miss Morgan, 7 months old | Canandaigua Baby Photographer

I absolutely love sitter sessions! They are one of my favorite things to photograph because, well, rolls for days. These sessions typically take place between 6-8 months, once baby is sitting securely but before they start crawling. It's the perfect time to get smiles and to capture all those cute baby outfits, as well as the chubby thighs, dimples, and cute[...]

Love at Logan Ridge Estates, Seneca Lake Wedding Photographer

The week of Raj and Rochelle's wedding was one of the most picturesque fall days you can possibly imagine.

365 Reasons to Smile: Starting a Daily Photo Project

Like many new parents, the minute I had my firstborn, I turned into a regular shutterbug. I photographed every single waking moment of his little life. I took LOTS of snapshots, and I have piles of prints, hard drives full, scrapbooks stuffed to the brim with memories. I wouldn't change that for the world. I've embarked on 365 projects several years - som[...]

Wow. 2017 was quite a year. We moved up to the Finger Lakes area just a year before, and I spent all of 2016 working hard to rebuild my business.

I thank every single one of my clients wh[...]
