Campbell Family Portraits, 22 Sep 12 | Rochester NY Family Photojournalism Portraits

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

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.

Fun with the part hats

Matthew is skeptical of cake…. but quickly grew to like it (and had a 2nd piece)

Dad, grandpa and Mark work in some hockey

Time to hit the road


The other guests had fun too :)

Mark loves running down the tumble trampoline

Thank you for letting me document a day in your family’s life.

My kids are cool, and so are yours | Rochester NY Child Photographer

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

Some recent photos of my kids. They are just the greatest. I enjoy documenting kids – and people – just being themselves, being real, having fun.

These first few were shot on expired film- I like the look.




Evan builds his Lincoln Log tower





Evan, the oldest, turned 4 this month. I can hardly believe he will probably be in preschool this year. He had a pretty cool birthday…


We took him to his very first in-the-theater movie, Adventures of Tin Tin.



And with a little bit of snow, they get to have fun outside

Ellery’s 1st Birthday, 11 Sep 11 | Rochester NY Baby Photos

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

A little over 2 years ago, I had the pleasure of shooting Carson’s 1st birthday party for friends from college of my wife and I (Erin and Dan). Erin contacted me a while ago and let it be known I was photographing her daughter Ellery’s 1st birthday as well. I was happy to see everyone again and Ellery and Carson were a blast. My boys had a lot of fun playing with Carson’s toys haha and they all had messy mouths from enjoying their cake.

By the way, I should visit Erin and Dan more, because each time I do, we walk away with an easy, inexpensive and tasty soup recipe. Cream of potato, bacon, loads of cheese and frozen veggies for filler the impression of a bit of health? Heck yeah! This time it was a chicken soup with star pasta and basil… mmm. I know visitors at my house benefit from this- so thank you Erin and Dan for those recipes ;)

We started with some traditional family portraits, some treasure hunts outside, followed by lunch (and aforementioned soup), then Ellery’s chance to eat some nice mushy messy cake. This was followed by some play and opening of gifts. Along the way I capture a lot of great photos- so enjoy :)

Happy birthday, Ellery!

Carson helps with the cake

She likes playing on this chair

Thank you again Erin, Dan, Carson and Ellery for a great time and a great soup recipe. Looking forward to seeing you guys again!
