I was happy to have another fun day playing with Carter, Brennan and Hadley, and documenting their childhood and family interactions. Having a successful session last year, we came back together to create some more awesomeness with the whole clan in attendance (dogs included). The first part of our session was in Penfield’s Veteran’s Memorial park, followed by epic bouncy fun and ice cream at Wickam Farms. Enjoy another peek into the lives of these awesome kids as they play! (Ok we snuck in a regular family portrait too)

The Tosto family got together from around the country for Christmas and asked me to document their family enjoying their holidays together in a family photojournalism style. They played some scrabble, set out some delicious homemade cookies, made some stuffed shells and enjoyed some fine wine from the Hermann J. Wiemer winery in Dundee, NY (it’s on the way to Watkins Glen).
Friends of Erin, the Campbells commissioned me to take some portraits of their young family for Matthew and Marks’ birthday(s) out in Buffalo. Starting with some cake for Matthew with her visiting from out of town family, they had fun eating the sweet food (it was Matthew’s first time), then played some hockey. We then headed down the street to Rolly Pollies, a fun gymnastics gym for kids, and Mark’s 3rd birthday party.
I believe that families are best documented in a photojournalistic manner- it is a far more authentic representation of your family and their interactions. Among my own photos, the ones that have lasting value to me are the ones documented naturally, instead of posed.
