Sydney's Class of 2015 Senior Photography Session

As the end of summer rolled around, and wedding season was winding down, we had the joy of meeting up with Sydney for her senior photography session. Although Class of 2015 commencement ceremonies had come and gone, Sydney was no less excited about her senior portrait session--and neither were we!

We started the first part of Sydney's shoot at one of our favorite places, Tifft Nature Preserve. The late afternoon sunshine created beautiful pools of light in the trees, along the paths, and among the tall wheat-like grasses. Perfect for such a lovely young lady!

For the second part of our shoot, we were in search of an urban flavor to offset the nature scene. So we made our way in and around downtown Buffalo, finding some of Buffalo's various graffiti and art walls to set the scenery. Sydney's personality was just bursting with effervescence against the vibrant colors of this urban landscape.

Of course, our shoot just wouldn't be complete without a Buffalo landmark to wrap it up. So over to Main Street we went, where Shea's Performing Arts Center was all lit up for "Curtain Up" week. Now isn't that a fitting analogy for senior year? The curtains close on Act One, the scene changes, the next act begins...and you just can't wait to see what's next! Congrats to you Sydney, as you step to the next scene in your life! :)

Presenting Autumn's Class of 2016 Senior Portrait Session

Senior Year is a big deal. So why not kick it off with a little end-of-summer fun? That's what Autumn did for her Class of 2016 Senior Portrait Session. From the urban brick and mortar alleys of Downtown Buffalo's Historical Cobblestone District to the tall grasses of late summer at Tifft Nature Preserve, Autumn rocked every shot of her session! Her clean & simple styling was perfect--but wait til you see those eyes! :)

After a quick outfit change and a short drive down Route 5, we were ready for the second part of Autumn's shoot. We loved every minute of it!

Autumn - thanks for choosing us to photograph your Class of 2016 Senior Portrait Session! We wish you the best in your senior year and in your bright future ahead!

Mike and Ella's Maternity Session at Tifft Nature Preserve

After a couple of cancellations due to stormy weather, and with Ella's due date quickly approaching, we were so glad things finally worked out for Mike and Ella's maternity shoot at Tifft Nature Preserve!

If there were only word to summarize this maternity session, it would be simply: lovely. Ella definitely had the glow of a happy mom-to-be (not to mention the cutest baby bump), and you could tell how enamored Mike was with his Ella and his little one on the way!

Not sure what is more adorable here - Ella's eyes or her freckles. Love it!

Mike made sure we didn't wrap up the shoot before he had a chance to strut his super-hero moves. Now Mike gets to be a super dad! :)

MIke and Ella - we are so glad we had the chance to document this momentous milestone with you two. And we are overjoyed at the safe and healthy arrival of baby Nolan! We hope we get a chance to see you all again very soon!
