When I was contacted by Daulton of The Refined Host to photograph one of the small gatherings that would make up 2021’s Nichols Annual Auction, I knew it was going to be a stunning event! I am in love with balloon arches and was even more excited when I learned that Buffalo Balloon Co. would be putting one together for the party. The decor was a perfect mix of fun and school spirit colors with elegant and sophisticated touches. I have been finding photographing events and parties really enjoyable as I love party planning and decorations!
Excited to share my first maternity session of spring! Marissa was a pleasure to photograph and there was so much laughter, so many smiles, and so much joy during this shoot. We started with family portraits and mommy and daughter portraits. Then ventured down a nature trail for a bit for some woodsy shots. Lastly we finished at a little stone wall for some grander shots. Amherst State Park was a lovely location even being very early spring. Opted for pine tree filled spots to add some greenery. Marissa’s magenta dress really popped and her romantic earrings added a lot. Loving doing shoots in nature right now!
It wouldn’t be early Spring without photographing Calvin! I have been doing regular child portrait sessions with Calvin since he was born. Can’t believe it! And this time I’m so proud of him, he came ready to be photographed and on board. Of course there was a lot of goofing around. But we had fun and got lots of playful shots. We went to Stiglmeier Park for his session and went to a few spots in the park and then the playground. It was a chilly one but we made the best of it and were so busy moving around it was easy to forget the crisp weather.
I have been shooting a lot since spring hit Buffalo! So expect more blogs for sessions soon.
I had the pleasure of photographing Sophie and her lovely family in their bright and picturesque home a couple weeks after she came home from the hospital. We did a variety of shots from newborn portraits to family photos to intimate shots in her nursery. Love getting to capture the special moments and memories of those first few weeks with a newborn lifestyle session!
