A Little Girl and Some Sunshine


It was finally warm here in Rochester! We deserved this 78 degree day after the winter we survived. So Anna got to play outside and I took some pictures. Prepare yourself for a serious dose of cuteness.

David + Nikki Renew Their Vows


David and Nikki just renewed their vows to one another after 10 years of marriage. It was so sweet to watch them stand in their church and re-commit their love to one another. I know how important this was to them and I was honored to be a part of it.

Sarah and Jeff Maternity


I just took a weekend trip to Philly to visit my friends Sarah and Jeff. I have been friends with Sarah since 3rd grade. She is one incredible woman and I am so blessed to have her as a lifelong friend. She and her wonderful husband Jeff are expecting their first child in the Spring and I am so excited for them. While I was there, we decided it would be the perfect time to take some pictures for them to remember this time of waiting and preparing for the arrival of baby Roman. Congratulations you two – love you tons.

Christmas Time


I don’t usually post many personal photos, but I wanted to share a few snaps from Christmas this year. Some of these are iPhone shots – don’t judge me. (Sometimes it’s just easier to whip out the phone) I hope all my readers and clients had a wonderful December filled with lots of family and friend time. Here’s to a great 2015!

Maternity: Ashley and Rick (part 1)


Ashley and Rick will soon be welcoming their first baby into their family! I met these two a couple years ago and had a blast taking both their engagement and wedding pictures. I was nearing my due date with my own first baby when I shot their wedding actually. See their wedding here. I am so excited with them in anticipation of meeting their precious and already very loved baby! It was raining and gross out the day we did these, so part 2 will be coming soon!

Kier and Nate celebrate 5 years!


These two are hilarious and so much fun to photograph. Just take one look through this session and you’ll see evidence of that. They just celebrated their 5 year wedding anniversary (whoohoo!) and although it has not been easy, they have learned to love each other more deeply. I’m so proud of you both and love you tons. Keep smiling and making each other laugh.

Jack and Colleen get married!


What a way to end the 2014 wedding season! Jack and Colleen put on a beautiful wedding that was simple yet elegant. They were surrounded by their favorite people and took time to really enjoy the moments. This couple is super sweet and I loved being able to celebrate with them. Colleen, you made a stunning bride! I wish you and Jack all the best on your new journey together as husband and wife.

Ben + Alyssa are engaged!


I just met this couple and I’m so glad I did. I had fun taking some engagement pictures for them at UB and then at their new home. Can’t wait for their wedding this summer – it’s gonna be fantastic. Any couple who gets custom jerseys for their photo shoot is awesome. It makes for such a fun photo shoot. And they even had a flour war in their kitchen. Check it out below.
