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.

AnneMarie – “Country Girl”

Annie and I had been planning this session since last November, but sadly her Father passed away a few days before our session date.  So we then postponed it a couple of times, and finally, after over half a year, everything came together!

Jordan – Studio Session

My very first official session with the adorably cute Jordan! Jordan’s Mom contacted me on Facebook, saying that she wanted to get some photos taken of her daughter.  I didn’t really ask, but I don’t think there was an “official” reason for this session, other than she just wanted some photos done!
