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[...]

Pretty in Pink, Rochester Newborn Photography

Oh baby girl. After two boys and all the smelly dirt-filled rough and tumble that comes with the territory, it's so refreshing to celebrate all things sweet, delicate, and pink! Momma requested soft, feminine colors for this little peanut, and I was thrilled to oblige! Half the fun of newborn photography is gathering up all these sweet props in all the most [...]

Chubba, Rochester Newborn Photos

Ohhhhh the cheeks! Maybe it's because my babies were on the smaller side, but I just can't handle myself when I see a fluffy newborn. Seriously I had to refrain myself from pinching my computer screen while I edited these newborn photos. Meet Mr. Elias, who was born healthy and quite fluffy at almost 10 pounds (he carries at least two of those pounds in h[...]
