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.

Theo - Rochester, NY - March 16, 2016

I love new babies. Squishy faces, tiny fingers and toes...they're just perfect. So when Daniel went to photograph Theo, I was a little envious knowing he'd probably get a chance to hold him, which he did. Theo was pretty cooperative during the shoot, and big brother Marshall got a chance to participate as well.

Happy Spring!

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.

Eleanor - Fairport, NY - February 19, 2015

Spontaneity! That's what kids are known for, right? Well, Daniel whipped out his camera on Thursday afternoon, after Eleanor's nap and snack (if you look closely you can still see the goldfish cracker dust on her mouth) to capture a few photos. Leaving one's expensive lighting equipment out for days can be problematic when you have a small house and kids, and he really wanted to photograph all four kids in succession that week. Hence the hoodie and Superman t-shirt too, because time was of the essence, and we had company coming for dinner. Nobody asked me for a wardrobe consultation, because...well, she could be wearing a paper bag and still be THIS CUTE. The joys of being two.
