Meet the Allen children! Aren't they the cutest?! They came to Neal Urban Studio over the weekend for the Spring/Easter Mini Sessions.

They were such well behaved kids. They listened so well, that we got to do so many different combinations with the set for them. I absolutely loved their outfits too! They went perfect with the set. Pretty much all color combos and patterns go with this set. The Allen kids are definitely ready for Spring! I also think they are ready to start their modeling careers!

We have just a few slots left for the Spring/Easter Mini's! Contact us today to grab a spot! You will be so happy you did!

Jennie is back! Jennie and Brock were also married back in June. We travelled to Allegany State Park for their wedding!

Another gorgeous day! A little hot, but great weather! For portraits, Jennie and Brock had picked out a few locations they wanted to stop at before arriving to their reception (which was also in the Park). This was nice because the Park is massive and goes through NY and PA. We were closer to the PA side.

This location had a nice open area. The light was shining in through the trees. We put Jennie right in the middle of some tall grass. She was nice and tall too, so she didn't get lost in the grass. A nice warm glow is cast on her. 

I love her reaction in this image. We got a great smile, but sort of mid laugh. Love the natural reaction! Did I mentions Brock was really really funny?

I hope everyone is staying warm and safe on this snowy Tuesday. If you have a snow day, enjoy it! 

Here is one last image from Frank and Amanda's wedding I shot back in June. The wedding party! After taking some photos over at Delaware Park,we went across the street to the Buffalo Japanese Gardens for a few quick shots before the reception at the Foundry Suites.

Luck was still on our side at the Gardens. For a June wedding, we thought it would be crawling with other weddings. Not one in sight! Yay for us! Frank and Amanda wanted a nice and simple photo on the stairs. Perfect! We did a nice smile for the camera photo. Great for the wedding album!

And now Frank and his guys!

Same location as the ladies at the Albright Knox Art Gallery. But, we decided to use the stairs instead. A bit less bright and airy. The guys were just as much fun to photograph as the ladies. A great wedding party! The guys had me laughing the whole day. It was actually a little tough to get them to give a serious face for a photo. As you can tell from the groomsmen on the left. He still has a giant smile. I love it! And look how fun their glasses are.

Frank got into "model" mode haha. Once again I didn't have to tell him how to pose. I think he practiced before the wedding!

Today we take you back to May 2016! This image is from Katie and Frank's wedding.

Katie got ready at her parents house. And what a gorgeous house it was. Look at how cute the hallway leading upstairs is! I love the color of the walls. The door leading out to a second floor balcony had so much light coming through. It was a great place to hang the dress. Katie's dress fit perfectly there.

We also thought this would be a good image to call mom in to help with the dress. Doesn't she look gorgeous! I just love this!

I know I have neglected the Blog this past week, but we were busy in studio creating this amazing set for our Spring/Easter mini shoots! 

We are so excited for this set! We were inspired by the TV Show Fixer Upper with Chip and Joanna Gaines. I just love their farm style remodels and of course SHIPLAP!! I want to do something like this to our house (one day). Neal and I actually hung out in the set while waiting for clients to arrive for meetings the past few days! I almost took my book to the studio to read for a bit on those chairs Sunday!

We wanted to keep everything clean and neat for the set too. Everything is easily removable, so we can create some different looks for families. Neal posted some of our set ups on FaceBook Saturday if you want to check those out! 

If you have never done a photo shoot with Neal Urban Studio before, this is a great one to schedule for! We have a lot fun and you will get beautiful images.

The photos will be bright and airy and just in time for Spring!

Happy Monday! And we are back with Nora at Neal Urban Studio!

Nora is just too cute for words! Look at that face! I love her expression. She has a very surprised look on her face. But she still shows it off in an elegant way. I bet you didn't know a 6 month old could do that haha!

Nora did not want to let go of those beads either. She had a firm grip on them when I went to take them away. When I backed away we got this expression. So, I guess it was good Nora kept them.

I also mentioned Friday that Nora had her own wardrobe station. Would you look at this? We had so many outfit changes to choose from. Look at all the headbands!!! And those shoes!  I love it! My kind of gal!

It is Friday and it is gorgeous out! Hope everyone can get outside for a little bit and enjoy this weather! 

On Wednesday we had an amazing family come into Neal Urban Studio for a family session. Besides that, they wanted some "model" style photos for their 6 month old baby girl Nora. They are hoping to get her into some baby modeling.

Well baby Nora has it all. Look at this gorgeous little doll! What a cutie. She was all smiles the entire time. We planned on 2 outfit changes, but she was so good, that we ended up doing 4! Wait until you see the wardrobe station! (I will post next week)

Definitely more to come from this photo session! And I would say Nora is 100% model material!

Hello Michaela! Michaela and Aaron were married in the beginning of June in 2016 at Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum! This was taken right outside.

I know I have only shown brides the past few days, but I keep coming across some great portraits that I need to share. I love this because it was taken by Alyssa, one of our assistants. She was working this wedding with Neal. She captured a great angle for this image. I love all of the vines and greenery on the building. Michaela looks amazing against the backdrop.

Such a stunning image of Michaela!

Monday May Wedding! This is the gorgeous Victoria!

Victoria and James were married in May of 2016! What an amazing couple. So many laughs all day. Victoria got ready at her parents house. The living room was nice and big with a lot of window light for Victoria to get dressed in. Everything was moving along so smoothly and we were doing really well on time. We got to stay with Victoria a little while longer for extra bridal portraits at the house. Bonus!

After moving a few pieces of furniture, we cleared out enough space to get this beautiful dress shot of Victoria. I love the framing of this image, with the windows and drapery. The desk was a great piece of furniture that we had to keep for the photo.

Victoria gave us a great pose too. She knew exactly what we wanted. Then we decided to add her flowers to the desk for a little extra detail. I absolutely love this image!
