Avery's Newborn Session {WNY Portrait Photographer}

 Sweet baby girl Avery and her family paid me a visit last Friday for her Newborn session. She was just 10 days old and the perfect size to model my diaper cover and stocking cap from Adventures in Yarn. We turned up the heat to a balmy 80 degrees and spent two hours photographing the little beauty and even got a few shot of her and her Daddy's fire fighting helmet. These are a few of my favorite shots.

 Thank you Avery and family, she's a beaut! Welcome to the world little Avery, I hope to be able to photograph you as you grow.

Beautiful Adri {WNY Portrait Photographer}

 It's not often such cuties as Adrianna come from over a thousand miles away to have their pictures taken by me! Because she and her mom were coming into town during a very busy weekend for me we scheduled a mini session for right before they had to head to the airport. Mini sessions are only about a half hour and include about a dozen or so finished images. These are a few of my favorites of Adri.

 Tiana and Adri, thank you so much for sharing so much of yourselves with me. I wish your stay could have been longer and next time we'll plan it so it's not during a work weekend.

Madison, Nathan and Jocelyn {WNY Portrait Photographer}

 Mom Jocelyn contacted me after seeing portraits I did in March of twins Sophie and Carter. She was looking for a booking so she could have some new portraits of her beautiful kids Nathan and Madison to give as gifts. We'd hoped for exceptionally nice weather so we could spend most of our time outdoors but, being WNY, it didn't quite happen that way. All the same, we did manage to get to the park after shooting the kiddos in their Easter finery where they were both as good of sports as could be in the freezing weather. These are some of my favorite shots. 

Thanks so much Jocelyn! Your children are just beautiful and I hope to get to photograph them again soon.

Four Generations of Amazing Women {WNY Portrait Photographer}

 This family has already become regulars for me and I'm so glad to have met each and every one of them, from great-grandma to the sweet baby. Melissa brought in her mother, daughter and four beautiful granddaughters for a generational portrait and also a couple solos of baby Amelia in her baptismal gown. I adore this entire family and cannot wait to watch the girls grow and capture the family's milestones. These are a few of my favorite images from the session.

 Thank you much again Melissa and family. You guys are the best and I hope you enjoy your portraits!

Alicia's Maternity Session {WNY Portrait Photographer}

 Alicia was my classic posh mommy that I photographed Sunday during Baby Weekend. The weather was all over the place. When she arrived it started alternately snowing and sleeting. Wen we left the park for my studio space it stopped but got windy again, by the time she left with her beautiful family it was sunshine and had warmed up a few degrees. Somehow we made it work though and she radiated through it all. These are some of my favorites, including a light painting. 

 Thank you so much Alicia and family! You were great and I can't wait to meet your latest addition to the family.

Angela's Maternity Session {WNY Portrait Photographer}

 Angela is one of the tiniest things ever! She arrived for her maternity session with Kristin and I was able to alternate between the two girls' sets for some beautiful shots. She is 25 weeks along and so excited for her "Princess." I can't wait to meet her for her newborn session! These are some of my favorites, along with a bonus of the both of them.

 Angela, thank you so much for battling the elements with me and helping me create some stunning images of you!

Kristin's Maternity Session {WNY Portrait Photographer}

 Kristin is one smokin' hot mama to be! She contacted me last week about doing her maternity session and we met up during Baby Weekend. We'd discusses concepts and worked together to create a pregnant pin up  look for her shoot to compliment her general portraits. What was a great idea became an exciting 2 hours. She had amazing energy and makes being pregnant look super sexy! We shot in some pretty severe wind and she was a trooper the whole time. These are a few of my favorite shots.

 Thanks so much Kristin! I had so much fun and loved photographing you, I can't wait to meet your little man at his newborn session!

Kristina's Maternity Session

Saturday late afternoon saw me shooting Kristina's maternity session. I was very excited to do it after shooting her handsome little guy twice over the last few weeks. Her special delivery is due June 1st and I'm equally excited to meet and photograph the little Miss. It was a great shoot, we shot about twice as long as planned it was going so great and I hope you love your pictures Kristina!

 Thank you Kristina, Ricky and Kaleb!
