Mr. & Mrs. Buczek

I don’t advertise myself as a wedding photographer because I’m really not up for the challenge of the 8 hour day, especially now that I have a little babe. I prefer intimate affairs. Couples who are on a budget, or are simply having a small wedding because they feel like it. Those are my people. I photograph the ceremony, family photos, and bride and groom portraits. Two hours of my time is $500, not including travel. You get anywhere between 200-300 photographs. If you are looking for something a little more low key and affordable on your wedding day, give me a shout. In the meantime, check out my latest work from the wedding I shot a few weeks ago at the Buffalo Botanical Gardens.

These two are the real deal.

The most difficult part of being a photographer (for me) is finding pretty and unique locations to take my clients. I don’t have a studio. I don’t have a ton of acres in the country. But when a client does, I take advantage of it. Larissa and Jeff live on a beautiful bunch of acres, and their maternity session was a bit more meaningful being at their favorite place, home.

My blogging has been super infrequent this summer what with teaching summer school and keeping up with this business, but I had to find the time to share this session with you guys. I think we can all agree that Larissa is a goddess.

 

Enjoy these last few days of summer!

thank heaven for little boys.

We didn’t know where to find spring a few weeks ago, but this lovely mommy-to-be was in full bloom for her maternity session at the County Park. Figure hugging frocks are a big YES for maternity photo shoots in my opinion. There is no better time to show off your bod.

It was cold. But since Rocky wasn’t getting any less pregnant, we didn’t have much of a choice. And Donny was such a good sport. He was frozen. And asked to do ridiculous things like act natural, and then smile, and then smell Rocky’s hair. We definitely made the best of things and laughed A LOT.

 

The little boy in that belly is one lucky kid.

a birthday & a baby bump.

A very special mommy-to-be, who just happens to be one of my best friends, has a birthday today. I hustled to get her maternity photos edited in time to surprise her. We had her session last week, in between days of rain and snow, I still can’t believe we were gifted such a beautiful day. It was perfect. Beyond perfect.

I have known Emily for 8 years, and never in our friendship have I seen her look more radiant.

It honestly looks like we took these photos on two different days, and possibly two different locations. Same day. Same hour. Same location. Just a sun playing peekaboo, and two very different but equally adorable outfits. I am SO looking forward to the arrival of another honorary niece! Happy birthday to you, Emily! I love you so.
