For my daughter’s 3 year portrait session we got a giant 3 balloon and headed to the park! She wore the rainbow crown and dress from her birthday party. It was a lot of fun!
It was a pleasure to see an old friend from high school and photograph her lovely family! We did an extended family session at Glen Park under their octagon pavilion. The picked time and date were the only time and date the whole family could get together for photos, with members coming together from out of town. So despite the heavy rain, the session had to go on! Although not the original plan, it proved to be a nice location. Kids can be hard to photograph in a contained space with all their family looking on so we ventured out to the nearby nature playground to capture some shots we couldn’t get under the pavilion. We made it fun!
I have photographed the Schimenti family many times over the years, it’s fun photographing a family every year and seeing the kids grow up! I’m not just saying this because I’m a photographer (well I am a bit and probably also partly saying this as a mother) but make a point to do family photos every single year. It’s so valuable and worth the effort that might seem like a lot at the time. We had a good time doing a pretty quick session at Glen Park before the sun set on a chilly November day. Sometimes you only have so much time, between fading light, freezing people, and energized kids. Glen Park is a great location for a shorter session as there are so many different looking spots to shoot and they are all so close to each other.
Angela and Jim’s pandemic wedding wasn’t what they originally had in mind but throughout their intimate church ceremony and backyard, garage, and driveway reception the focus was on what truly mattered. 2020 was a tough year for weddings without a doubt. Angela and Jim had to cancel their originally planned reception and give up their dream location. Despite everything and a ton of rain, Angela and Jim got married and made it special. I was honored to be a part of their day.
For Ryan’s senior portraits we went between Amherst State Park and Glen Park for a variety of locations. It was fun capturing some serious shots as well as some smiling ones and of course some classic yearbook ones. Williamsville South High School 2021!
