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[...]

Simple Perfection, Canandaigua Photography Studio

Sometimes the simple things are best - Simple styling, big smiles, and lots of love. That's all that's needed for a wonderful portrait! I loved photographing these guys in the Mischief and Laughs Canandaigua photography studio. The boys were, well, toddler boys and wanted to explore. But that's to be expected and even celebrated! We had a blast playing toget[...]

Expecting all the Best, Rochester Maternity Photographer

Aren't momma-to-be's just the cutest thing ever? I mean, the glow, the belly, the happiness that exudes from them?! And don't get me started on their families... I just can't handle the sweetness! Maternity portraits are so fun! This cute little family was one of my favorites from this spring - they were all smiles during their maternity photo session bac[...]

They don't stay little, Finger Lakes Family Photographer

Mommas. Let me tell you something quickly here... Those little babies you hold in your arms today, you know the ones that need you for everything? They grow. And wow, do they ever grow quickly. My own biggest little guy turned 12 yesterday, and I swear he was just starting kindergarten a few days ago. He's almost as tall as me and he eats like crazy and h[...]

Spring-ish, Rochester Maternity Photos

Oh the last couple weeks have been a tease, haven't they? The sunnier days and the mild temperatures have given me some serious spring fever and I'm really looking forward to some flowers in my photos! But it is still February and with that I'm going to have to come up with some crafty solutions to my lack of florals. I'm borderline obsessed with learning to[...]

Special Delivery, Rochester Newborn Photographer

I absolutely love babies with fluffy hair. True story. Bald babies are great (I had a couple of my own) but that fluffy soft fuzz gets me every time! And sure, when it's that soft, it's bound to fall out eventually but for the first few weeks, the fuzz is king, and it all smells so sweet - like fresh baby. As a Rochester newborn photographer, I see all sorts[...]

Baby Bliss, Canandaigua NY Maternity Photographer

Pregnancy is such a special time, whether it's your first or your fourth. This sweet momma is cooking up baby #4 and she couldn't be more radiant! She told me during the session that she never had pregnancy photos taken with any of her others - it was time to commemorate her ability to bring life into this world, nurturing a little body as it grows and devel[...]
