Brian & Sarah : Seneca Lake Wedding Photography With Tomas Flint

Sarah & Brian tied the knot on a gorgeous summer day.  A day full of sunshine, laughter, and lots of love; it was simply beautiful all around.  I feel privileged to have been a part of their day and to witness the special love they share.  Of course working with Tom makes any wedding that much better.  He continues to impress and inspire me beyond words.  Here are some of my favorites from that beautiful day.

That's all for now folks.  Thanks for stopping by!

Photo Sessions, Albums, Announcements, Oh My!

In case you haven't noticed, I've been absent from the blog world lately.  This year has been busier and more successful than ever, but has kept me running!  I've been busy taking pictures of the most wonderful families, designing albums and announcements and just overall crazy with a mile long to do list at all times.  As a result I've neglected the blog.  So I've come back to share a few recent pictures just to let you all know I'm alive, well and still snapping! 

On another note, the busy fall season is approaching fast and sessions are booking up quickly.  Oh, I can't wait for those brilliant fall orange and reds!  If you're interested in a fall photo session contact to make sure you get your preferred date. 

Smiles until the next time...

The First and Fleeting Year : Rochester, NY Children's Photography

New life brings with it amazement and wonder. When a child enters our world our lives are changed immediately and evermore. Everything is new and each step is more incredible than the last. The first time they lock eyes with you and you know you've connected in some unspoken but important way.  The first time you know they’re responding to you with those adorable coos that echo your own.  The miraculous first smiles and first steps. All too soon those precious months have come and gone and we're left with distant memories of that first and fleeting year. We hold those images in our mind of what they were like when we first met them; and all the little things they did along the way as they grew into unique little people. We don't get that time back, but we do get to preserve those important memories in pictures.

Here is Jenna's first year in a few pictures I selected from the 4 photo sessions we had together in that time.  I'm honored Jenna's parents trusted such an important task to me. She's grown so much and I just can't believe how quickly the year has gone by.

Smiles & sunshine!

Lula Marie : Rochester, NY Children's Photography

I just realized it's been a long time since I've shared any recent pictures of my favorite niece Lula (I can say she's my favorite since she's also my only niece). I'm not quite sure where the time has gone. It wasn't that long ago that I was holding her in the hospital for the first time marveling at this new life. Now she's a year and a half, running around the house, yelling my name "lelli", "delli" or whatever other version she can get out that doesn't require the 'k' sound, sharing her toys with me and reciting her numbers and colors. I of course am enamored by her.  Especially when I hear she's making requests to "watch Elmo with Aunt Kelli pleeeeeeeease!"  It doesn't get much more adorable than that, does it?  She's as sweet as she looks. I'm hoping she stays that way forever.

Until the next time...

Quote of the Day : Rochester, NY Children's Photography

"The child must know that he is a miracle, that since the beginning of the world there hasn't been, and until the end of the world there will not be, another child like him." - Pablo Casals

I saw this quote today and had to share it.  It makes me hope for every child to know of their own incredible uniqueness.  I want for them to go out into the world with that knowledge and make their own path with confidence.  At each and every session I am reminded of this.  Children are amazing; brimming with curiosity, and full of possibility.  They are spectacular to be near and observe, and to wonder what greatness lies ahead.  These cuties from a recent session are no exception.  I just know they're going to blaze trails in the years to come.

happy days!

Falling For Fall

I LOVE fall.  It's such a beautiful time in upstate NY.  The crisp blue skies, reappearance of apple crisp and pumpkin pies and of course the vibrant colors.  My schedule has been packed with fellow fall fans and I'm loaded with gorgeous pictures with perfect fall backdrops.  There's plenty more to share but currently I'm loving this picture.

Things I Love

Working with newborns and children so much, I am frequently asked for ideas on everything from what to wear for a photo session to a good place to get funky nursery furniture.  I've made a list of "things I love" for my family, friends and clients that I love.  All of these links are worth checking out for some adorable clothes, accessories, and furniture for your little ones.

The Little Seed - furniture, fashion and accessories with an environmental twist

Posh Tots - clothes, furniture, playhouses and more...everything from a-z for your "posh" baby

Serena & Lily - sweet bedroom collections and furniture

ShopGenes - cool gear for the urban family

Babylegs - dress up your little one's legs

Kukunest - fabulously modern kids bedding

As I find more things I love, I'll be sure to share here with you.  Check back for additions and feel free to share any suggestions you have here too!

Heroes 4Hope Gala

Last week Tom and I were invited to photograph The Heroes 4Hope Gala for The Jorge Posada Foundation.  It was the 8th annual gala for the foundation which was created to raise funds and awareness for children with Craniosynostosis.  The theme of this year's Heroes 4Hope Gala was a salute to Yankee catchers. Joining Posada were Hall of Famer Yogi Berra, Yankee manager Joe Girardi, Rick Cerone, Mike Stanley, Charlie Silvera and the widows of Elston Howard and Thurnan Munson.  Derek Jeter and Bernie Williams we also on hand to show their support.  It was a huge honor to work with the Jorge Posada Foundation for such a worthy cause and to have our work linked on their website.  Click here to view the slideshow. 

Many thanks to Tomas Flint for sharing this experience with me and to Mike Macchione at Catch 24 for believing we were the best photographers for the job.
