Entries in family portraits (19)



Spring was definitely in the air yesterday. The weather was amazing. I hope everyone got to enjoy the outdoors at some point! After the weekends Spring sessions and editing like crazy to deliver everyone's images by Monday, Neal and I enjoyed the day off and the weather!

Here is another gorgeous image from the Spring/Easter sessions at Neal Urban Studio. I love these girls! They were so cute! In between set changes, there was a lot of twirling! Well, I was twirling and Neal was moving the props.

This is one of our favorites from this session. Look at those smiles! And I loved their dresses. We didn't use that many props for this image. We kept it clean and neat. The vintage bike was perfect! All eyes on those cuties!

During the week, we had such a fun shoot with this lovely family! We did their photos at Fort Niagara State Park.

We had amazing weather. The heat and humidity died down and there was a great breeze. Thank goodness! We all met in one area and jumped around to different areas of the Park. We had some rustic style areas, as well as giant trees that line almost every inch of the Park. Then we headed down to the beach for some sunset photos. 

This was one of my favorite images. After clearing away some spider webs, we had the family have a seat, helped with some posing and we made the family laugh to get some real smiles. Everyone was very photogenic, they made our jobs very easy. Enjoy!

Here is another image from the family session we had in downtown Buffalo. Here are Dan and his partner Dan! They contacted us to organzie the family session. We wanted to make sure to take some of just the two of them as well. 

We started with the "Dan's" around Shea's. They both said they had no idea what they were doing or how to pose. Well, they were wrong. They looked like models. They were so natural and looked amazing. We didn't have to tell them how to pose at all. We learned at the shoot that we had photographed 2 sets of their friends weddings. Both couples said they didn't know how to pose or what they were doing. And they also did amazing and looked like models. It must naturally run in their circle of friends!

Buffalo Family Photo Session: Buffalo Theatre District, Downtown Buffalo, Hotel at the Lafayette



A few weeks ago, we had a fun family session in downtown Buffalo. I loved that they wanted to do something different besides a park style. We all met on Main St. in front of Shea's. We worked around that area and then walked down to Hotel at the Lafayette.

I didn't realize how many new businesses opened up around that area. So many new restaurants and shops. We decided to stop at a few spots for some quick photos.

This was in front of a cool French Bistro called Raclettes. Now, I have never been to Paris, but it sure looked like the cute little places they show on the travel channel! 

I think this is such a fun family photo. It is so much different than our normal family style shoot! Neal and I are always looking for something different and we definately got it here!

Happy Easter to everyone! We hope you all get to spend some time with family and friends! I know we are looking forward to it!

Today I selected a photo that just makes me feel like happy weather is on it's way. These two little ones were so much fun to photograph. We did this family shoot about two years ago at a private residence. I love the colors in this image. They are so bright and airy. 

When you have little ones to photograph, it can be very unpredictable. Since we were outside, the kids could run around and have fun. We let them do their thing and we were there to document. 

This little bro and sis decided to take a stroll and and check out what was down the road. As you can see they do love their accessories. We just love the hat! And no lady would be complete without her sunglasses in hand!

Happy Easter!

Look at how cute this image is! Daddy and his little guy.

We had so much fun with this family shoot. They are a family of 4, but we snuck in some solos with daddy and his son (don't worry, mommy got her solos too). They look so great in their matching style plaid shirts. The interaction between them is so fun. I like how the little boy is holding onto daddy and lifting his feet off the stool. He looks like he is holding on for dear life, but with a giant smile!

We recently did a family portrait session in Neal Urban Studio!

The family just welcomed a baby girl, so we wanted to have her and her big brother in a photo together. And so close to Christmas, why not have them in their Christmas pj's! 

We thought it would be really cute to lay them down head to head. I love how big bro is smiling at his baby sister and their hands are almost in the same position. You can see her eyes are open and looking right back. I love it!

We had a beautiful family photo session at Glen Park a few weeks ago.

Here is an image of mommy and son! Isn't he such a cutie! And mom is just beautiful! They have an adorable little girl as well. An image of her and her baby brother were posted a few days ago too!

After rescheduling their first session due to awful weather, they had an amazing day for this. The leaves were so colorful. The sun was shining through and casting a really pretty glow too! Love this!

We recently did a family portrait session at Glen Falls. It was the perfect fall day. The temperature felt like spring!

Aren't these two just adorable? She loved being the big sister, she wanted to hold her baby brother! At least she made a good attempt at it! haha! We had mommy and daddy being silly behind us while taking the photos. We got a great laugh and smile. I thought this was really funny but also very cute that I just had to share.

It is not super easy getting kids to look at the camera, let alone two. But some of the best images can be those moments in between!
