I have been to a lot of weddings and I typically see the same lovely traditions but Nicole and Kevin did something I had never seen before and it was awesome. Nicole’s delightful grandmother was a bridesmaid and I hope this becomes a trend! It was a touching gesture and it was made even more special because we were able to witness the love her grandparents still have decades after their gold anniversary. I wish you lots of love and luck in your new lives together, you should be fine with your role models!!!

The Mashia’s met me at the Skaneateles Country Club on a bright summer’s evening for a mini-lifestyle family portrait session. My sessions are very low pressure and unstructured, there is lots of playing, dancing, & even time for snacking (if the session feels like work for your kids the images will show it)! I love photography because it forces me to be present and to really observe situations, their 9-year-old showed me how quickly kids grow up…at times she was startlingly mature and then a few moments later she was enjoying a juice box while sneaking a cuddle from her mom! I feel grateful that I had this evening with the girls to capture them while they were still little girls (for the most part). My favorite part of the session came at dusk…the girl’s reward for being awesome was getting to jump in the lake in their clothes!!!

Stephanie and Jason had a classic Skaneateles wedding, they were married at St Mary’s and then celebrated lakeside at the Skaneateles Country Club. Stephanie and her crew got ready at 34 State Street and it is my new favorite wedding prep location…I highly recommend it for your wedding day or even a little luxurious getaway! I had a chance to get to know Stephanie and her family when I documented her sister’s wedding, I am so happy they chose me again since it’s always delightful to work with their family! Jason and Stephanie were blissed out enough to remain completely fabulous even though we were battling extreme heat and humidity (thank God Jason had the foresight to pack a fresh shirt to change into before the cocktail hour)! They kept the great energy going all evening with The Mere Mortals, it’s such a treat when great vendors and people come together to create a wonderful celebration. Many many thanks to Megan and her crew at MLH Events in creating a seamless experience and to Rachel at In Bloom for proving stunning florals!

Time flies especially when your first baby arrives. Brooke’s sweet baby boy is already 6 months old and we’ll be doing his one year portraits before we know it (here is his newborn session). I love this age, the babies just stay put and do a lot of smiling…that’s a photographer’s dream! I am available to document your bundle of joy’s first year, for more info check out my family session magazine.

Rose and Michael were wise enough to schedule their engagement session while the sunflowers were in full bloom, it was a lot of fun photographing this engagement session among the brilliant colors of late summer. I am very happy this lovely couple chose me to capture their day…they are just delightful people and a joy to work with!
