The Miller Family | Sunset Session

How cute are these kiddos?? And how beautiful is this backdrop? It’s my favorite place to shoot and love to go there any time of year ❀ Can you guess where this is??

We had a fun hour playing, being silly and picking wildflowers! The weather cooperated and all was well πŸ™‚

Sunset Session | Webster Arboretum

She’s 3…THREE!! She was a dream at her newborn session and was a dream at her 3 year old session. Lucky, lucky me!

We chased each other in the maze, twirled by the flowers, hung out on the bridge and just had a ton of fun!

And this little girl…is SO loved. Take a peek…I love this family ❀





Now booking September and October sessions!!

Family Session at Eastman Museum

I looooove a night that is warm, with a bit of a breeze and beautiful light. And that’s just what we got! We celebrated family, togetherness and summer. We laughed, scouted out hidden spots and had fun for an hour…and when you come to your session ready to have fun, this is what you get:

Baby, Family, Newborn

Mitchell | Lifestyle Newborn Photography

Mitchell! Oh so you are such a sweet babe! I mean, look at those cheeks, toes and lips! At 2.5 months Mitchell was so aware and full of personality. His mom & dad are head over heels for him as you can see πŸ™‚ His mama was *glowing* – which is near impossible to do when you have a new baby (keep sleeping little man!).

I love photographing families who have a new baby – I can *never* get enough of that. Β What I love even more, is photographing families who have just had their first baby. Yes, they may be tired, a bit scattered, and…well just tired ha! BUT they are SO HAPPY. All of them! There’s nothing like watching people who are still getting familiar with their first baby. It’s all so new and amazing (even the hard parts) and they’re just happy to be going through it all. It leaves me feeling energized, happy and excited for their journey.

Here’s a peek at Mitchell’s Lifestyle Newborn session!

Nadia & Serena | Rochester NY Photographer

Let’s just all say it “Ahhhh they are SO CUTE!!!”. And not only that but they had the sweetest little personalities to go with it ❀ We had fun giggling, making faces, running and showing off their pretty toes πŸ™‚

On original scheduled date to take photos it POURED. Torrential rain I’m talking…not a day for photos. So we rescheduled and it was worth the wait. The weather was *perfect* and the light was beautiful = happy family and happy photographer πŸ™‚

Interior Design, Local Featured Businesses

Betsy Marrinan Interior Design

Now normally I’m not someone who typically believes that if you open yourself up to the universe and tell it what you want, it will answer.

But it was Friday and I was leafing through a magazine thinking “How fun would it be to photograph interior spaces! I would love to do that sometime.” And not more than an hour later, Betsy from Betsy Marrinan Interior Design called to ask me if I would be interested in doing some interior design photography for her.” HOW WEIRD! πŸ˜‰

So of course I jumped at the chance…and had such a great time photographing her beautiful spaces, chatting with Betsy and trying something new!

Take a look at her beautiful home and then be sure to jump over to her website to see what she’s been up to!

Rochester Family Portraits | Armstrong Family

Can I tell you how much I love this family? They’ve been with me since Ryan was just a baby – and now look at him! So handsome and grown up (do I sound like a mom or what?!) I enjoy seeing them every fall.


We had a beautiful fall day this year, so we took full advantage of it. Nittany, their pup, was amazingly well behaved as always.  We hopped around the park, chatted, laughed and took some images that I hope they love. Ryan will certainly be able to look at these photos and see how loved he is ❀

Thanks Armstrong family!! xo
