Grayson is 3 Months Old! {WNY Portrait Photographer}

 Grayson is the cutest little moose and I am convinced he will grow up to be a line backer! At just 3 months young he was already 17 pounds and healthy as a horse- he even sits! 

 Grayson's mom is Toni the baker and he has a Watch Me Grow package for his first year. It's actually a lot of fun and astounding to watch this mighty little man grow. These are some of my favorite shots!

 Thank you Toni! The boys are handsome as ever!

Baby Kaleb, 1 Month New {WNY Portrait Photographer}

I first met Kaleb and his mommy Jennifer when he was 15 days young. He modeled a sweet hat for me and came back two weeks later for his newborn portraits. I loved his little belly. These are a few of my favorite shots!

 Thank you Jenn and Kaleb! I wish you and daddy all the happiness in the world!

The M Family Session {WNY Portrait Photographer}

 I met the wonderful M family thanks to a referral the day after Angela's maternity session. Jessica, Colt and Bella were visiting the area from Florida and had two days before Colt had to return home. Jessica is from the area and it was nice getting to know the family and here the story of how she and Colt met and fell in love. Bella was a joy to photograph and play with. These are some of my favorite shots.

 Thank you all so much for taking time out of your vacation to meet with me! I hope everyone back home enjoyed seeing your new family portraits showing our beautiful fall. Many thanks to Angela for the referral!

Angela's Maternity Session {WNY Portrait Photographer}

 There aren't enough nice things I can say about Angela. She is by and far one of my favorite people to work with. Last month she scheduled a mini session to document her beautiful, baby figure and let me go nuts. Because of the pumpkin drought, we ended up driving around like mad women looking for a good pumpkin patch since the usual suspects were shockingly empty. We also stopped at Wagner's Orchard for some country girl shots. What was going to be a half hour session plus driving time turned into 2 hrs. of shooting, almost as much time in driving, lunch and a near arrest (I honestly didn't even notice the enormous Air Base directly in front of me behind the pumpkins until the officer said he knew I wasn't photographing it, right??). It was a simple and sweet session and possibly my new favorite maternity set. I even made a guest book for her baby sprinkle of our favorites with some great pumpkin quotes. These are some of my favorite shots.

 Thank you Angela, I can't wait to meet your beautiful, healthy and loved baby. Remember that to be a good gardener, grow pumpkins.

Aubrey Turns 2! {WNY Portrait Photographer}

Last month I shared this cutie's 2nd birthday Cake Smash with everyone. A week later was her birthday party and I was there to capture the fun for Aubrey and family. To go with her carnival themed Smash, a tutu was made for her in her favorite carnival colors and there were carnival accents all around! She and the rest of the kids had a blast running around and playing with the bean bag toss. She was really into her cake (obviously!) and received many thoughtful gifts. This little girl was surrounded by love. These are some of my favorite shots of Aubrey in action!

 Thank Kym, as always, for choosing me to photograph your beautiful family!

Introducing Baby J! {WNY Portrait Photographer}

 I had such a hard time giving Jaxson back to his mama at the end of our session- he was the quintessential perfect baby! There are plenty of reasons to love this little guy. We started out with some modeling for my vendor friend, moved onto the family shots and then headed to the studio to finish up his sleepy shots. He was an incredibly easy baby to work with. Mom, dad, brother and sister are so lucky to welcome him to the family! These are some of my favorite shots!

Thank you April and family, he is the sweetest baby I've had the pleasure of working with!

And don't forget to enter the Monsters & Me Contest to win a custom newborn hat and gift certificate for a shoot.
