2017 Fall Mini Sessions

I’m hoping to get some great foliage this year during my fall mini session campaign.  This set of fall minis will be outdoors.  The final location will be determined as the dates approach and I scope out the most beautiful trees in the city of Buffalo. Tuesday...

Commercial Casting Call 2017 {Children 4-7 years old}

“I WANT TO BE ON TV!” It is that time of year again when I get a call from my good friend Trish looking for a few cute faces to appear in a local TV commercial.  You may not know her name but you may recognize her work.  Here is a link to view past...
Winter Fun!

Winter Fun!

  You could sip hot chocolate, read a book, ski, snowboard, make a fire, snowshoe, hike or go sledding on a weekend winter day.  Last Saturday we stepped out of the ordinary weekend winter life and created a great set of family photos. I loved shooting this...

Three Happy Campers

Planning a photo session takes skill.  Location, timing, dates, weather, outfits, a buy in from your spouse, a bribe for your children… no matter how much you plan it will never/ always be perfect.  Let’s just take Location and Timing for example…...
An Evening at Shea’s Performing Arts

An Evening at Shea’s Performing Arts

Why not clear Shea’s out for a family photo session?  Why not have the place all to yourself?  Why not get all dressy and doled up (inlcuding bright red lipstick) and head out for a photo session?  Add a little glitter and glamor to these three girls and you...

You may not be reading this post on the exact day I write it so I’m going to describe it to you.  It is October.  I woke up to pitch black at 7AM, low clouds are making it difficult for the sun to brighten the day, dead leaves are blowing around, it generally...
Inspiration Outfits

Inspiration Outfits

Love how these families dressed for their mini sessions!  Why do I love it?  Layers, they have all layered the outfits, denim jacket, hair bows, scarf, necklaces, they all work to bring more texture to the images.  Also the tones of the outfits all work together....

They’re Not From ‘Round Here (family portraits)

This family of four came up from sunny Florida to visit sunny Buffalo and in their short visit I was lucky enough to catch an hour of their time for a photo shoot.  We were hoping for some fall colors but sadly, it ended up being a bit of an Indian Summer here.  So we...
