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!
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!
The excitement and fun around our first pregnancy continues! My husband and I decided to find out the gender of our little one on the way. We felt if our doctors knew, we wanted to know too! We felt it would be just as much of a surprise finding out at our ultrasound as it would be finding out after delivery. Plus, I am the planning type and wanted to be able to decorate the nursery exactly as I wanted knowing if we had a girl or boy on the way. Finding out gave us the chance to throw a gender reveal party to share the news with close family and friends! And of course I snapped some photos along the way.
