Michael's Senior Portraits - May 7th, 2016 - Rochester, NY and Lake Ontario

I usually don't capture senior portraits before the school year ends, because I want the subject to truly be a senior. Well, this was the exception that broke the rule: a senior portrait taken in May of senior year. Michael was content with the school-supplied portrait for the yearbook, but as the year came to a close, his parents realized that they wanted something more. Michael was game, and in the end, I think he had a great time changing outfits, personas, and locations to capture different sides of his personality. It helped that his faithful compatriot was with him the whole time, even getting in on the action for a picture or two.

Emily's Senior Portraits - Corbett's Glen, Rochester, NY - July 23, 2015

It was a cool July evening, with near perfect weather and gorgeous late evening sunlight. Daniel photographed Emily at Corbett's Glen, a secluded park tucked away in Brighton. Emily was a delight to work with, and her mom was a terrific studio assistant, too.

Let it be known that Daniel did not have to work terribly hard to convince Emily that she should wade into the creek.
