Whiteside Family & Maternity Portrait Session at Lewiston's ArtPark

With baby number four on the way, Asha and Fred decided it was high time to plan a family portrait session that would capture the energy and personalities of their growing family, while celebrating their latest addition. So off we went, to Lewiston's ArtPark, for what turned out to be a very unique family maternity session! We split our energies to capture both the exuberance of their playful children and the intimacies of mom and dad that, well, reminded us all how all the kids came into the world in the first place :)

AT the start of the shoot, the kids hung around just long enough for us to capture a group shot. Then they were off to play while mom and dad had their own portrait session. The lighting and the scenery of the lower park overlooking the Niagara River made for a perfect setting.

Three kids and counting, these two still have that spark. We absolutely love the interaction--as natural as the scenery!

While mom and dad were doing their thing, the kids had already set their eyes on much more fun stuff in the woodsy Emerald Grove area of the park. So we headed over to the huts and sculptures to capture them doing what kids do best - play!

Just a few more shots with the family reunited, and it was a wrap!

Whiteside family, thanks for a fun and beautiful shoot! We had such a great time with you all and look forward to seeing you again after your latest addition has arrived! :)

Colleen & Jon's In-Studio Maternity Portrait Session

When Colleen called to schedule her maternity shoot, we were just experiencing the start of what would turn out to be one of the coldest, snowiest, windiest winters in decades! So of course, we opted for an in-studio maternity session to keep her, Jon, baby--and us--warm and cozy.

While maternity portraits are really all about mommy's baby bump, we absolutely love photographing couples together, so we were really glad to have dad in session with us as well.

We can tell by the shoes that this is going to be one sharp-dressed little baby boy!

Jon and Colleen, congratulations on your new baby-boy-to-be, and thanks for letting us be a part of his welcoming committee! We are really looking forward to meeting him and photographing your family together during his first year!

Tommy & Mel Maternity Shoot: Expecting Baby Tyson

When we meet with potential wedding clients, we often envision being a part of their lives beyond the wedding day. We love being there to capture the start of a beautiful family...and all the joys that come along the way.

So, when we met with Mel and Tommy, we no doubt mentioned (half in jest) that we would love to be around to capture their family as it grows. Well, almost a year to the day since we photographed their engagement session, we had the privilege of photographing their maternity session.  And, almost a year to the day of their wedding, they became proud parents of baby Tyson. We are looking forward to meeting him in person soon, and having more of their story to share.

For now, here's a look at the then mommy-and-daddy-to-be. Looking good as always! Tommy and Mel, congratulations! We look forward to seeing you and Tyson again real soon!

Tiffany & Jeremy Maternity Session

So how exactly did it come about that we shot with Tiffany and Jeremy for their maternity session? Well Tiffany was kind enough to relate that she found us after pouring through pages of a 'Buffalo maternity portraits' web search. She saw our work, loved it, and called us right away. Thanks Tiffany for the love! We are so glad you chose us...after seeing the images, we can't imagine it any other way! :)

These images shot against black are some of our favorites. You two look amazing!

Last but not least, we stepped outside to get a few more shots in the beautiful greenery at Delaware Park. What a perfect way to close out our session.

Tiffany and Jeremy, it was our pleasure working with you! Can't wait to meet Cahli Rose! :)
