I have been photographing the Dossett family for many years and have seen their son Calvin grow over the years! This year we meet at the Ivy Arch Bridge in Delaware Park for a holiday mini session. Even though I know Calvin and have photographed him since his hospital stay when he was born, it takes some time to get him to warm up to having his photograph taken. But we always have fun and we always get there! This year the family was bigger with a new puppy!
I have photographed the Schimenti family many times over the years, it’s fun photographing a family every year and seeing the kids grow up! I’m not just saying this because I’m a photographer (well I am a bit and probably also partly saying this as a mother) but make a point to do family photos every single year. It’s so valuable and worth the effort that might seem like a lot at the time. We had a good time doing a pretty quick session at Glen Park before the sun set on a chilly November day. Sometimes you only have so much time, between fading light, freezing people, and energized kids. Glen Park is a great location for a shorter session as there are so many different looking spots to shoot and they are all so close to each other.
I did two holiday mini days this year at the Ivy Arch Bridge in Delaware Park and it was fun seeing how different the sessions looked between color schemes and lighting. Love the rich colors of this session with the adorable and stylish Guarino family. We did family photos in a couple locations and a few different groupings (mom and sons, dad and sons, boys alone) plus just had some fun running around and playing with leaves and twigs.
Julie and Nick decided to cancel their 2020 wedding plans and reception but they made the best of it with a stunning spot for their ceremony and portraits. We met at Niagara Falls City Hall on a Friday and they had an intimate civil ceremony. Despite the fact that the day wasn’t what everyone had in mind there were smiles and laughs all around. With the historic building as a backdrop, we were able to capture many beautiful bride and groom portraits.
Denise and Chris got married in the middle of an intense year, for weddings and all around, but they were able to keep a lot of their original plans. With a limited guest count and outdoor space at their chosen venue The Creekside Banquet Facility in Cheektowaga, NY they made things work. Lots of classic and romantic details made the day special. The emotion throughout the day made it unforgettable. A more unique and truly beautiful moment was the father daughter first look. We captured some intimate bride and groom portraits on site at the venue and the ballroom made a perfect backdrop to the ceremonies of the day.
