Childhood Only Happens Once


Working with kids of all ages is so much fun!  I truly enjoy these shoots and watching my families grow and change every year.  And, I completely empathize with everyone who hates to have their picture taken!  It requires a great deal of trust to relax and let go of our insecurities.  But the truth is, you’ll never regret spending an hour making memories with your kids, laughing, playing, and allowing me to memorialize your family love. 

My fees are designed to give you the most memories, allowing me to provide variety and have a good time.  I don’t work with a time limit and will be patient while I wait for kids to relax or for natural moments to happen.  In my opinion, setting short time limit and stacking up one shoot after another as in mini sessions does you a disservice.  You are always my sole priority, and I want to give you the time you deserve.  I realize that you can go anywhere for portraits, and that you can get a documentary-style photo every year through school – so my primary focus is always spending whatever time it takes to create something you’ll cherish, and making sure those moments tell your beautiful story.

My images are high quality and can be printed at any size.  I offer archival printing and framing services, as well as a variety of professional products including albums and canvases.  My studio is on Main Street in Clarence, allowing you the option for either an indoor or an outdoor session, giving us the flexibility to work around work schedules and the finicky Buffalo weather.  

I welcome your ideas and I love to find unusal themes to fit your child’s unique personality. You’re welcome to bring any props you like and I will always work to incorporate your vision.  I would love to hear more about your ideas, and create lasting art that will fill your home with happy memories! Let’s chat!

Large Family Photos

How often is the whole family together?

Large family portraits include everyone: spouses, grandparents, siblings, children and the family pets.  These sessions are priced differently as multiple families will have their portraits created and there is no limit to the amount of people - families come in all different sizes!


The package is designed to be gifted to a parent or grandparent –  including a professional 16×20 archival-quality canvas for to cherish.  After the session, everyone has the opportunity to order whatever they would like. The sessions offer unlimited breakdowns in posing – so everyone gets their own family portraits along with the large family shot. We can do individuals of everyone, couple shots, sibling shots, just girls and just boys, even a portrait of the family dog.  The grandkids with grandparents is always a favorite, and always a riot.  Basically, whatever you want!  Send me a message today to get your plans started!
