The Hettrick Family | Rochester, NY Family Portraits

Ahh fall ❤ I am aching for warm weather again…I am DONE with being cold and stuck indoors. The kids need to get out and run, run, run! Until then, I’m going to remember what’s coming in the next few months by taking a peek at last years sessions that I never got around to blogging.

Let me tell you…this family is AWESOME! Jeff, Kim and their 2 boys Holden & Connor will give you instant smiles. The boys are hilarious. I’m lucky that Holden and my son Aaron are preschool buddies so I get to see them relatively often 😀

Look at those faces! Ah! That bottom right one of Connor…I was trying so hard not to shake my camera while I was laughing 🙂

These photos are a sample of the photos they received from their fall mini session! This year, I’ll be offering mini sessions on weeknights ONLY (remember…it stays warm and light until 8p in the summer!). These sessions are perfect for families with 1-2 kids, or with older kids. Be sure to take advantage 🙂

Emmett | Rochester, NY Lifestyle Newborn Session

At the beginning of nearly every year, the first session I book is a newborn session. I LOVE this…what better way to start off then with a cozy, at-home session with a new baby?! This family was wonderful! We spent time capturing in-the-moment images as well as posed images. When mom fed or changed Emmett I got to play legos and hide-and-seek with his big brothers ❤

You know what else I love? New parents who look at each other like Katie and Brian do. 3 children, sleepless nights?! Look at how sweet they are! ❤ And look at that beautiful baby!

I always take some time with the baby alone with mom and dad (each of them and then all 3 of them together!). Snuggles are the best! It’s a nice time for them to just take a breath and LOOK at their new baby.

I love some hands-on poses that are still natural. It’s about making sure everyone looks good while capturing moments that happen naturally. And photographing interactions between family members (pups included) is priceless. That’s the good stuff you guys…you don’t want to forget those moments!

Those moments? Take a peek below. These are just a handful of my favorites from their session. Those legos next to the dog?! Yes, someone will probably step on them (like I do nearly every day) but it’s something that I don’t want mom & dad to forget…their boys LOVE legos!

Katie did an amazing job with the nursery…I’m not sure where she gets her energy to turn Pinterest ideas into beautiful creations but I would like some please!!

new2Thank you so much to the Moore family for having me in your home ❤ Your boys couldn’t be cuter!
**Lifestyle sessions are available for any type of session! They aren’t just for newborns – we can make a family session a lifestyle session (email me for details on how we do this!).

Holden | Lifestyle Newborn Session | Rochester NY Photographer

I love this family. LOVE them! They are so welcoming, so relaxed and so content. The Spryns are now a family of 5…with 3 boys!! Their family session (you can see it here) was fun, and their newborn session did not disappoint. I had a blast following them around, being introduced to the different rooms by their eldest, and watching all the new interactions between everyone and the new baby, Holden.  ❤ He was absolutely beautiful and just like his brothers, so loved.

The Ryans | Family Session

Can we just take a minute and talk about how ADORABLE these girls are?! The Ryans were so welcoming from the minute I walked in the door (even though my parking job was somewhat questionable) 😉 We took some photos in their backyard and then headed to Oak Hill Country Club across the street! Even their pup had fun…look at his smile 😀

A Spring Family Session | The Kleiners

The warm weather is FINALLY here! I’m so glad we had such a beautiful night for the Kleiner’s family session. We hunkered down in their backyard and had lots of fun! I always love it when the kids help pick the locations…they always have a great eye for their favorite places.

Now is a great time to have your session. The weather is warm, the air is fresh and EVERYONE is in a good mood just to be outside!

Every Day Sessions | Something NEW!

When I was pregnant (ok so since day 1) I knew I wanted to stay at home with by babies. I’ve been home with Aaron for 4 years and Olive joined us 17 months ago. Staying at home, I’ve had these moments where I just wished there was someone following us around photographing our day together. I burn the moment into my brain and hope it sticks.

test

Like when Aaron was 2 and we would race outside to watch the garbage truck pick up our tote. He’d sit in my lap and we would wave, hoping to get a “beep beep!” in return.  Or when Olive will random turn to me and give me an eskimo kiss. These little amazing moments that I want to freeze.

Of course I have the photos of my kids doing most of these things on their own…but I wish I was in them. Can you believe it…I should know better. I should have hired someone (and I still should!) to take an everyday session for me. I want my kids to have a snapshot, just an idea, of what we did during the day together. What our days were filled with, how much fun we had and how loved they were.

lr8

So wether you are a stay at home mom, or you are taking the day off work to enjoy your little one(s), this type of session is for you.  *Every Day At-Home Sessions*.

lr1

We’ll schedule a time for me to come to your home and photograph you with your babies, doing every day things. Going for a walk or bike ride, playing in the grass, making cookies, chalking on the driveway, blowing bubbles etc… it’s nothing that takes planning…it’s just a relaxed, fun day at home. A session that shows your little ones personalities while they’re in their element…with YOU! If you really don’t want to be in them…well, ok 😉  But you should be! At least a few!

Every Day At-Home Session ($350):

  • 1-2 hour session at your home
  • Minimum of 40 edited images
  • Online gallery of all edited images
  • All digital files, via gallery download

Email me to set up your session at Erica@photerica.com.

These moments…don’t let them by! xo
