Baby Chase's Newborn Lifestyle Photography Session

From the time of Colleen and Jon's maternity session, we were eagerly looking forward to baby Chase's newborn session! So on a sunny Spring afternoon, we finally had the joy of photographing a lifestyle family portrait session with newborn baby Chase and his family.  

It was our pleasure to be some of the first folks to welcome baby Chase into the world! We met him comfy and cozy at home with his family, gently settling into a nap...the perfect opportunity to get some sleepy shots!

After a few sleepy poses, baby Chase woke up just long enough to smile and show off his gorgeous eyes.

After a few shots with the family, mommy was able to coax him back to sleep. These next few frames are just adorable, from head to toe! :)

Thanks for a lovely shoot, little Chase--you and your family! We can't wait to meet you again this summer to see how you've grown!

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!

Leila Ann - 7 months old!

Once again, we were happy to have Miss Leila Ann back in our studio for more of her first year portraits! She is just growing so quickly, and getting cuter every time we see her! Love that smile - and those little toes!

The Brown Family: Yates Park/Green Lake Portrait Session

When their Mom & Dad (Jeff & Patsy) reached a milestone anniversary of 35 years, Phil & Stephanie wondered, what could be the best gift they could give to two people who have everything they need? They decided on a family portrait session that their parents always wanted but never had. What a beautiful idea! You can imagine our enthusiasm to accommodate such a loving gift.

These folks picked a location close to home and heart -- Yates Park (Green Lake) in Orchard Park. After a couple of reschedules due to dicey weather, the rain stopped and the clouds parted just enough for us to have a fun and memorable shoot. We were all very thrilled about that!

We started our shoot at the foot of Green Lake, and fell totally in love with this family's interaction. The pride and joy of this family is definitely little Miss Emma--who, for now anyway, holds the title of the sole grandchild. She was brave enough to venture off with one of us (Deanne) just a few feet away from her family to play a little bit in the park. We started at the swing she knows very well -- the one she and her Grandma Patsy have frequently shared. Then we played with leaves and collected a few fascinating acorns. So much fun! Meanwhile, the other half (Tim) captured a few more photographs of the grown-ups before reuniting the family again for some shots near the reservoir. The fall leaves on this day beautifully accented their family bond! Thanks Browns--we had such a great time photographing your family! We were honored that you chose us to commemorate your family milestone - we certainly hope it's just the beginning of many more!

Jaelyn's Mini Portrait Shoot

On a recent visit out West, our neice Jaelyn persuaded us (pretty easily) into having a mini-portrait session for her. In reality, we were happy to do it - we love you Jae! We must admit that this young lady has a knack for posing it up...like she gets a lot of practice or something. Just a hunch we have. These portraits really turned out beautifully. Jae, we had a great time with you! Very proud of the young lady you are becoming! We hope to see you soon!
