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

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 🙂

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.

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.

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

These moments…don’t let them by! xo

Mini Sessions | New Client Special

Sessions are an investment. It’s a big decision who you decide to have to photograph your family, especially if you’re in the market for the first time. You want to be sure that you will be happy with your photos, and sometimes it might seem like a lot to risk. I get it, which is why I am SO THANKFUL for each and every one of you that comes to me!

This year only, I will be offering something new for those of you who would love to have their photos done, but just aren’t sure if you want to go all in for a full session. Mini sessions! Yes…it’s happening. For the FIRST TIME I am offering family/child mini sessions from May through August. If you’ve had mini sessions done with me in the past, but NOT a full session, this is available to you as well! Minis will only be offered weeknights, but if you can swing it, it’s a great chance to take advantage of mini sessions while they’re here.

Mini Sessions: $200:
– 30 minute session
– 10 digital images
– All edited images delivered in an online gallery
– All digital files, via gallery download

I would love to see lots of new families this year, along with my usual amazing loyal clients ❤ Set up your session in advance, rescheduling due to weather is always an option! Erica@photerica.com xo
