Last weekend I got to spend an afternoon shooting with Rory and her two Roberts. I met Rory through mutual friend Emily, who's daughter I photographed back in September in awesome tie-dyed tights, and we hit it off right away! They're an awesome family and Robert Jr. is a pretty rad kid. Handsome to boot!
These are a few of my favorite shots of the three.

Thanks to everyone for an awesome afternoon and I hope you love the portraits!

Fall is for Family

Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing the M Family's Portrait. I received a call from mom Liz on Thursday asking if I could meet everyone to shoot on the reference of friend Charlotte. I shot Charlotte and her beautiful baby back in June so I was happy to accept and get to meet the beautiful family. Liz and Mike have three kids, including teen Michael, 12 yr old Kelsey and a very active 14 month old named Isabella. These are a few of my favorite shots.

Thanks to everyone for spending your afternoon with me and big thanks to Charlotte!

West Side and Black Rock Neighborhood Housing Services

I was contacted in mid-summer by a volunteer of the West Side and Black Rock Neighborhood Housing Services group to see if I'd be available to shoot some local buildings and landmarks for their 30th Anniversary Banquet to be used as centerpieces. Since I didn't anticipate having much going on until the deadline I jumped at the opportunity since I love Buffalo and Buffalo's history! However, due to unexpected events, I wound up with only a week and a half to shoot, edit and deliver the photos. Luckily, they were very happy with the results and I'm only now getting caught up to able to blog about the experience.

This is the Armory in downtown Buffalo. It was shot my second day but this is my favorite of the buildings.

The top of Black Rock Church.

A detail shot of the exterior from Engine company 15 in Black Rock.

The Black Rock Lighthouse, which you can get lost trying to find- we did!

The Sweetness 7 Cafe near the shopping district of Buffalo's center city.

I shot restored buildings, abandoned buildings, a Habitat for Humanity house while the interior was being completed, historic sites and new businesses that are all being affected for the good by the work that the Neighborhood Housing Services provide. It was a great opportunity and you can learn more about their work by visiting
