Abby – Hamlin Beach State Park!

A week ago today (July 12th, 2019), I had the great privilege of shooting a swimsuit session at Hamlin Beach with the stunning Abby! Abby and I had talked about shooting this last summer, but the weather, schedules, and timing was off so we postponed it to this year. It was well worth the wait!

Golden View Ranch – Obstacle Challenge

Yesterday marked the beginning of a new horse show season for me! I say “for me”, because technically a horse show season doesn’t really end! Most of the riders and competitors compete all year long. During the summer the events are held outside. During the winter, the events move into large indoor arenas.

Mariah Meadows Horse Show Season Finale (sort of)

This past Saturday (Sept 22nd) marked the successful conclusion of the 2018 Mariah Meadows Fun Show series season.  Technically, there is still one more show to go – the awards / fun game show, where they present the awards for this seasons winners, plus a series of “just for fun” patterns for the riders to compete in.  Hence the use of the words “sort of” in the title.  😊

Family Photo Session: Hamlin Beach State Park

I had the greatest pleasure of shooting a family portrait session yesterday afternoon at Hamlin Beach State Park. It actually turned out to be a fantastic day to go to the beach.  It was quite hot and a bit humid, but with a slight breeze coming off of the lake, it was very comfortable.

Starry, Starry Night

Before going to bed last night, for some reason, I decided to step out on the back deck and see how nice it was outside.  It was definitely mild and I discovered that the stars were out and shining brightly.  This prompted me to try something that, up until last night, I had never tried before – photographing the stars!

Tanner & Tavian Senior Portrait Session

I’ve been shooting senior class photos since the year 2013. I’ve provided my services for seniors for various school districts in Orleans, Monroe and Niagara Counties. But for some strange reason, shooting for seniors in the Medina school district – my home turf, has been fairly rare.  In fact, I had my first senior session for a Medina student just last year!

Genesee Country Village & Museum

This past July 14th, I had the great pleasure of photographing a wedding at the Genesee Country Village and Museum in Mumford New York.  Even though I’ve lived in this area for most of my life, and I knew about the GCV&M, this was the first time that I had actually ever been there.
