Ready for sweetness overload? Meet Whitney, Sean, Viv & Ceci! I had such a beautiful session with this little crew, and cannot wait to share. We met at Forest Lawn for their family session under the blossoming trees; I started early with the ladies to do a few Mother’s Day portraits, and then Sean joined the fun. Sessions with toddlers and infants are total wildcards haha but this bunch rocked it out! It was so lovely to get to capture this crazy and wonderful time in their lives:)

I loved getting to spend time with this sweet family again for Chris & Jill’s engagement session last week. You might remember Chase from his first birthday session this past fall; he’s grown so much since then already! I always love doing sessions that are a blend of romantic shots and fun family portraits, and this session was perfect for that. We played around the Japanese Gardens and History Museum, and Chase had me cracking up. Every time I asked him to smile or pose, he’d look right at me and say “HUH?!” You’ll see what I mean in the shots below 😉 He was such a patient little model, and Mom & Dad did great too! I can’t wait to see this little crew again on the wedding day!

It’s a little quiet around here because of this sweet pea 😉 Meet our newest little lady, Verona Marie! She made her big debut on 03.02.16, and we are thrilled that she is here. It’s been such a joy to slow down & relax with my babies during my maternity leave! Thank you to all of my clients for your patience & understanding as I disconnected from the business a bit & focused on just being a mama. That being said, I’m still very excited to jump back into another whirlwind wedding & portrait season. Stay tuned for a few fun giveaways and portrait specials to celebrate my return to work later this month! For now, enjoy these shots of Miss. V & keep up with all of us on Instagram and Facebook for more!

As a die-hard Buffaloian, I just adore fearless couples that plan winter weddings, and I think you will too after seeing how much fun Caprisha & Tommy had last month:)They had a sunny, wonderful day for their celebrations, but I’m not sure it would have mattered at all if it was a blizzard instead. These two are so full of love, that their happiness just radiated out all day long (you’ll see those smiles from getting ready to the last shot of the night!) I was so lucky to have two fabulous photographers, Lindsay DeDario and her assistant Steve Karosik, cover this wedding for me while I was very, very pregnant. They did a stunning job, and while I was so sad to have missed out on being there personally, I really enjoyed getting to relive C&T’s big day during the edits! There were so many special moments here, one of the best being their first ‘touch’, where they shared love letters through a door at the Hotel @ The Lafayette. It was such a sweet way to connect without seeing each other. Afterwards, they headed off to their ceremony at St. Anthony’s, then Lafayette Square for some quick and chilly bridal party portraits. They warmed up inside the ballrooms of the Lafayette for one big, fabulous party! Scroll down to see it all!

One of the ultimate perks of this job is getting to meet two people at our initial consult, and watch them as they go through life’s adventures together, from their engagement session, to the wedding day, to the maternity session, to the newborn time, etc. I love getting to see my clients grow their families, and am always so grateful when they trust me with their memories, time and again. I am especially happy to share images of this little family, as I’ve so enjoyed seeing them go from two to three to four. I loved being here to capture their newest little love, Baby Maggie! Big congrats to parents Matt & Jen, and big bro Jack!
