Rochester NY Photographer | Spryn Family

This family makes me smile allll the time. They are such good friends, have such great personalities and are not afraid to have fun – even in 40 degree, windy, COLD weather! They met me at The Apple Farm and we had a blast. A cold blast…but you’d never know 🙂






Love ya’ll to bits xo


Rochester NY Photographer | Kohlmeier Family

I LOVE it when a session is a bit different from the norm. Like when a long-time friend wants you to photograph her family, which includes 3 horses! Jump.For.Joy 😀

See that gorgeous barn? They built it. By themselves…jaw drop. They built their dream the way they wanted over time…and it’s beautiful. Their happiness, their horses, their child, all of it…just perfection.

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 🙂

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 🙂

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! 😉

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 to schedule your family lifestyle session.

The Charno Family | Rochester, NY Family Portraits

Oh summer! Oh beautiful families!

I was so excited when a gift certificate was purchased as a Christmas gift for Denise (grandma!) from her children (in-laws included!). The evening we picked turned out to be perfect – there’s nothing better than a summer evening for a portrait session. It’s worth re-organizing your schedule for the day if you can swing it!

I had fun chasing the little ones, gathering and grouping families & kids and chatting throughout the session.


Can not WAIT to be back at this gorgeous location with another lovely family this summer ❤ Thank you Charno’s for being so wonderful!

Photo Session TIP (The most important!):
– Schedule your session about 1-2 hours prior to sunset in the summer. The light is soft, golden and beautiful…and it will make YOU look better too! The Charno’s have lots of little ones, and we all know that 5-7pm is a HARD time of day for them. BUT they re-arranged their day so that they had the best possible outcome for their photos! And it paid off!

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 🙂 to book your session!
