Okay Mom’s, this ones for you! Mother’s Day is just around the corner and it’s time to celebrate you! Whether you’re a mom to a little one, multiples, or the grownup kind of kids, it’s time to have your portrait taken with them. I realized this year that Mom’s rarely have their portraits taken. While it may not seem important now, someday it will be important, not only to you, but to your children. Let’s make the time to show off that love.
Starting Monday, April 11th through Saturday, April 16th, Lovely Day Photo has dedicated the entire week to Moms! These sessions are limited to Mother’s and their children, whether it be multiple generations, Mom’s of adult children, or new Mom’s. (sorry, Dad’s. You’ll have to wait your turn, but this would make a nice gift.) After your session I will create a beautiful piece of art, and have it framed. Ready for you to display in your home by Mother’s Day.
Session notes/limitations. Session times are first come first served. Limited evening and Saturday appointments are available for this specific event. Up to 4 people are included in the price of the promo. Please contact me if you have more than three children or would like to organize a much larger generational session. Clothing suggestions are monochromatic, all white/light, or all dark. Payment is due at the time of booking. Promo includes time in the studio for the session, viewing appointment, an 8×10 framed in 11×14, and 1 low-res files of the selected 8×10 image to share on social media. 6 frame colors/styles to choose from.
To book your session please contact the studio.
Mother’s Day Portrait Sessions
Saturday was Valentine’s Day eve, and the (almost) perfect day for a wedding in Buffalo. As you know, we’ve had a pretty mild winter, I was actually nervous we weren’t going to have any snow for Teresa & Jay’s wedding pictures. The week of their wedding the temps dropped, it snowed, and then temps continued to drop. I said “almost” because it was -19 degree on Saturday and it made for extreme conditions, in which Teresa & Jay braved for about 10 minutes. I didn’t dare keep them out any longer, it was too cold!
It seems like every year I photograph a wedding on Valentine’s Day weekend there is some extreme weather conditions. The last time was a few years ago in the Pocono’s during a storm which landed them 3+ feet of snow, two days before the wedding. I personally love winter weddings and my heart sings for snowy portraits, but I’m starting to wonder if Valentine’s Day weekend is cursed weather-wise. But hey, this weather definitely beats mild temps and boring grey/muddy photos! =)
I’d be happy to work in -19 degree again if it means portraits like this!
Winter wedding in Buffalo New York
Every year I spend days trying to prepare my favorites images from the previous year’s weddings. It’s one of the hardest things on my “to-do” list every January. I honestly dread it, mainly because every year I feel like I’ve left so many great shots out trying to narrow things down so you don’t have to see so many portraits. This year, I’m giving up and showing you a TON of wedding portraits to look at from 2015. I hope you enjoy! You’ll see everything from Buffalo’s beautiful sunny days, to our moody windy/raining days. Outside weddings to inside weddings, all different body types, dress colors, flowers, venues, styles, dance moves, and expressions. Each wedding is so very different, yet at the end of the day the same thing has happened. You’ve gotten married, had the best day ever(!!), and get to reminisce through the photos for the rest of your life. After 10 years in business I can still say I love photographing weddings just as much as I did when I first started. Actually I might enjoy it more because I’m not as terrified anymore. ;) This is part 1 of 4.
Remember how I mentioned those rainy days in my first entry? Well, you’ll have an opportunity to see what happens if it does rain on your wedding day here in Buffalo. There’s nothing we can do, but Buffalo has a beautiful landscape rain or shine. Plus with the Ellicott Square Building permit* you can always have a backup spot, just in case. You’ll also see those hot sunny days in mid-July in this entry.
*The Ellicott Square Building is available by paid permit only. If you are the type of bride that is truly worried about rain I’d recommend reaching out the the as soon as possible as they only allow 2 wedding parties in at a time.
Part 3 of my 2015 recap contains weddings from Shea’s Theater, in downtown Buffalo, along with a wedding at St. John’s Baptist Church, and finally ending up in Bradford, Pa. for an outside wedding at the Penn Hill Country Club. As you can tell, I did a bit of local traveling this past summer. I’m not sure if I’ve ever had a year with so many beautiful locations!
Are you hanging in there, and still going through wedding portraits?!? If so, you’ll get the chance to see one of my all time favorite venues, the Country Club of Buffalo. I know what you’re thinking, how can a place with floral wallpaper be my favorite?! Well, the club is so much more than that. First of all the staff is beyond amazing, and so is the food. If you’re a foodie, like me, then you can appreciate that even the plating is gorgeous at CCB, and the staff really take the time to make sure you and your guests feel welcome. and let’s talk about the grounds, the northtowns tend to be pretty flat, but not there, the beautiful club sits overlooking the Williamsville/Amherst area. With beautifully landscaped gardens and greens, you really couldn’t find a more beautiful club.
This entry also includes wedding pictures from, Cragburn Country Club in East Aurora (Also an extremely beautiful club), the Outer Harbor, Downtown Theater District, A quick drive by of the Buffalo Bills Stadium the weekend we played the Patriots, The Basilica, and The Avanti Mansion.
I hope you’ve enjoyed looking through some of my favorites from 2015. 2016 is 95% booked and 2017 is about 20% booked at this time. Thanks again for 10 fabulous years! I couldn’t have done it with out so many referrals. Love you!
