Buffalo based counselor Ashley Schimenti has been growing her business and wanted portraits for her new website. We did a Branding Portrait Session that reflected her professionalism and calming personality. Her goals are to have her clients be, “heard, respected, and treated with compassion,” and to help her clients, “take that first step towards having the life they want.” We wanted her portraits to reflect that. We did some portraits at her office and some at the nearby Glen Park in Williamsville a suburb of Buffalo, New York. We had a fun and relaxing shoot and some great results!
A few days after we brought our daughter Odette home from the hospital we had a newborn lifestyle photo session in our home. We wanted to capture those first couple weeks as well as capture how little she was and get photos of us as a family!
My daughter Odette Sabine was born June 15th at 4:51pm! Shortly after I did newborn portraits in my studio with lots of help from my husband. Being the parent and photographer was a different challenge and I was still very much in recovery mode. I planned the shoot out a lot before delivery so I had already planned the styling and props. Went with neutral backdrops and petite and sweet headbands!
