Meet Liz! A senior at Mount Morris Central School with the graduating class of 2019! Liz is so sweet, which made spending time with her during her session super easy and fun. Liz is a girl who appreciates the people in her life and so she most enjoys surrounding herself with the people who love her and spends a lot of time with her family and friends. When she’s not in school or with her family, she’s usually working at the Livingston County Center for Nursing. Being around nurses at work and caring for others has made Liz realize how much she would like to continue to help others in that line of work in the future. After school she plans to attend school and become a Registered Nurse specializing in working with children specifically. I think her kind and thoughtful demeanor will be a perfect fit for that and I look forward to seeing everything she can accomplish as she chases her goals!
I'm so excited to share a little bit about Emily! I had a good time getting to know her while talking during her senior session. Emily has this calm confidence that makes being around her easy and fun. Her crystal blue eyes sparkle and her smile is contagious the way it lights up her face!
Sylvan Beach vacation photos. Some of my favorite people in one of our favorite places!!
I love watching my brother and his family as they all grow together. Watching Henry go from only child to adoring big sister; watching Dolly June as she grows more and more red hair; watching as Heinrich and Lauren become parents to two - while they continue to work hard on their home, yard, garage, and enjoy they're hobbies. There is always a project in the works, wether it be a new pigeon coop, or a rock wall for the play set - they continue to build a life they love.
Joy fills the ways of their home. While out back, Heinrich and Lauren are being gifted all best rocks the yard has to offer by Henrietta.
This is Wesley + Landyn. They are not only father and son, but also best buds, and basically do everything together. I first met Wesley at work and the first thing I recognized about him was that he really cared about his job, and did it very well. The second thing I noticed was that he was very happily a dad, and we had that in common. Both of us talked frequently about parenting toddlers, about how hard it is, how rewarding it is, and how unique it is compared to anything else either of us had ever experienced. Taking pictures of Wes and Landyn was a blast, and I love that Wesley will have these photos as a visual memory of a time that so quickly flies by, and Landyn will have these pictures to look at that so clearly show how much his father loves him, and how happy they are when they are together.
It feels like the end of an era as we say goodbye to these huge toy stores. As a child, nothing was more exciting than walking through these doors after you got a card with a $20 dollar bill in it for a birthday, or Christmas. It's an overwhelming joy of shelf after shelf filled with every toy you can imagine. I'll never forget the influx of Geoffrey the girraffe commercials around the holidays with the catchy jingles and ads for the season's hottest toy!
As a mother I love seeing my children's face light up when we pull into the driveway. It's so fun to watch them slowly shop around and wander through every aisle of the store comparing their options before they finally settle on their prize. Undoubtedly the toys end up opened before we even pull out of the parking lot.
We'll be sad to say goodbye to Toys "R" Us and the magical feeling it creates in a child. We decided to have a family outing and take one last spin around Geoffrey's stomping ground with our Toys "R" Us kids!
We love the Connollys and our home was a flutter with excitement that not only were we seeing Lucy and Lennon, but that we got to meet their new little brother Truman!! The kids have shifted into their new roles as as big sister (x2) and big brother. Lennon seemed captivated by baby Truman and looked at him with such tenderness and awe. Truman was every bit as adorable as we knew he would be and it was so sweet to see Peter and Rebecca's happiness as their little family is now complete.
Enjoy the pictures of new to the world Truman (who was wide awake his whole session!) and the sweet, silly, crazy, fun and adorable Connolly 5!
Makenzie and Ryan are two of the sweetest people you'll meet - which makes the fact that they have a baby girl on the way that much more wonderful! We feel so happy for these two! Watching Ryan dote on Makenzie with her little belly was really sweet - you can tell he adores her. Makenzie looks at him and her whole face lights up. Its a good love and its growing by one! As they prepare for their daughters arrival they are having fun planning a nursery and dreaming of their future. With their magical woodland back yard I'm sure this little girl is going to have a life full of adventure and wonder.
We really enjoyed our time with Maureen and Rob as we walked around Rochester's Highland Park. Spring filled the air with beautiful blooms all around us and the sun shining. Rob and Maureen are both beautiful people, not only on the outside - but they are kind, silly and fun. Through their giggles and playful personalities we got to really see how much they love each other and how lucky little Aubrey will be to be born into such a happy and loving family.
There are a lot of people awaiting little Aubrey's arrival and she sure is going to come into the world already adored! Maureen and Rob are so excited and counting down the days till they get to see their baby's face and hold her in their arms.
Its hard to believe that our little love is already three years old. Time is flying and she is growing up to be this funny little firecracker - constantly learning new things and shocking us all with her brilliance. My days are filled with tender cuddles with my "BFF" and it has me feeling like the luckiest mom in the world!
Margaret Wilder Grace became the newest member of our family and our world is brighter for it. I love being a part of the journey and documenting this exciting time in our family. Margaret is a little ray of sunshine and she gives the sweetest cuddles. Her baby smiles light up her face!
The Zinter family has had a busy handful of months as they bought a beautiful new home and welcomed the adorable little Kynsley as the newest member to the family. I absolutely loved getting to visit with these sweet souls.
Nikki and Jeremy have created such a beautiful, happy family and I loved seeing them all show their silly side as they played and laughed together. I think the sound of happiness and giggles echoing through a house is what truly makes it a home.
For so many reasons, being a part of the births of my nieces means so much to me. I love being a spectator to the power of Lauren and Ricky's love for each other and the strength and calmness that brings even in the most difficult situations. They come up with a plan, pull together, and work together towards their goal. On February 13th that goal just happened to be the birth of their daughter, Miss Dolly June.
Sometimes the best part of what I do is just meeting new people. I got to meet the Dueppengiesser's during this sweet little lifestyle session at their lovely house in the country. I was delighted to be greeted at the door by their beautiful Doberman and the the day just got better when I met this smiling baby girl! This wonderful little family is celebrating the first weeks of being a family of 3. I swear the love this little lady felt for her parents just beamed from her smile the whole session and the admiration was mutual as these new parents were just glowing as they gazed down at their new precious little girl.
Watching your baby sister be a mom is a pretty cool thing.
Our little nephew Walter is 100% boy - we are talking swords, sports and you better believe you're going to be wrestled into a hug. I think the arrival of a little girl is going to bring such a different side to the Cowie household and Walter has such a loving heart that I just know his little sister is going to be his pride and joy!
Our lives are about to take such a joyous journey as our family grows and I find myself smiling continuously about the adventures ahead of us! I couldn't be happier as I anticipate the day I get to hold my little niece.
This adorable family is one that you may see a lot of on my facebook and blog because that little blonde haired beauty is my niece. Full of personality that grows more and more dynamic and adorable by the day - I love celebrating the joy she has brought into our lives. As the countdown ticks till her new baby sister arrives, we are so excited to welcome another sweet baby into our lives and hearts. We cant wait for all the added love this little one will bring and we are really excited to see Henry take on her new role as a doting big sister.
There are things about living in a small town that are wonderful, and getting to see people grow up and blossom from cute little kids into beautiful, talented and intelligent adults is definitely one of them. Monique Nichols is currently a senior at Mt. Morris Central School. Monique is a brilliant and dedicated scholar and she will be be graduating as Valedictorian of the class of 2018.
We really enjoyed our time at Letchworth State Park photographing and catching up with this beautiful soul and we are excited to see her continue to chase after her dreams as she graduates school and starts the next chapter of her life.
Meet Dominique Martello, a senior at York Central School in the graduating class of 2018. Dominique has this magnetic personality that shines out within minutes of meeting her. She's charismatic and fun and we really enjoyed exploring Letchworth state park with her as we took her senior pictures. At young age, Dominque has already accomplished so much for herself and she continues to set her goals high, and push till she meets them. We have no doubt that she will climb every mountain she sets her sights on, and we can't wait to see where her talents take her!
We had such a fun evening catching with the Regals! Kyle made the trip home to Mount Morris and we were lucky enough to have a session with this family while he was here. We always enjoy and feel inspired by couples who have withstood the test of time and Holly and Ryan are just that! The pair have raised three wonderful children with the oldest, Kyle, currently serving our country in the military; although it's very hard to have him living so far away from home, Ryan and Holly are so proud of him! Maddy is a senior at Mount Morris Central School and their youngest son, Cameron, a junior; Both Maddy and Cameron are very involved in school and both play several sports, giving their parents a lot to cheer for, and a lot to be proud of! We loved seeing Ryan and Holly enjoying their family as they all played and laughed through the whole session. We left the park with smiles on our faces; feeling happy about our small town life in of Mt. Morris.
We met with the Holt Family on late summer evening at Indian Fort Nature preserve for this adorable family session. The minute Everly stepped out of the car, we were oohing and ahhing over her huge blue eyes, chubby little cheeks, and sweet strawberry blonde hair. We clicked away at our cameras as she ran, and explored which made catching glimpses of her smile and laughter an easy task. We had such a good time laughing along with the Holts and we love getting to catch the tender moments between families.
