Hey! This is the page where I get to combine two of my favorite interests - photography & writing! I've been known to talk too much, according to many of the men in my life, so I'll try to let the images tell most of the story, but be warned! 

Sometimes that 8 year old girl in me breaks out and has her show. :) xoxo

Elisabeth {WNY First Communion Photographer}

So - I could entitle this: First Communion/Fairy Tale Session, but SEO would FREAK. OUT. So, just know it can be both. Or either! It's both.

I've had the honor of photographing Elisabeth a few times, being an ultra-cool classmate of my triplets - and she never disappoints! Her Mama, aka, my baker bestie friend of Buttercrumbs Bakery, wanted a session of her in the blossoms, and I was all over that! Elisabeth + Communion Attire + Buffalo Cherry Blossoms? Add in some architecture and Holy Heck, Yes! We decided on the Japanese Gardens downtown by the History Museum, and wow - the day was overcast, and the blooms were just past their prime, but the scene was perfectly set for an insanely dramatic fairy tale! I was in heaven, and if everyone else involved wasn't risking hypothermia ("Mom! I can't feel my face!" Kids were assisting, because - friends!), I could have shot her all day. Heaven! Did I say that already? Anyway, take a look down and see what I mean! We ended up creating a 5x5 trifold card on linen cardstock with her images for their family in Belgium and it was stunning and magical and girly - so... Elisabeth; she's beautiful inside and out! It was such a great session that I had a hard time choosing which ones to edit, and an even harder time deciding what to blog. Image heavy, but all my favorites - she's so great to photograph!

As a side note, I go crazy for the details that set the stage, so I'm not only photographing you, I'm looking for the surrounding bits so I can tell the whole story of our adventure! I really think that the context of the session helps you get back into the memory every time you look at your gallery.

A special thank you to Elisabeth, Kat and Ken - you are my muse(s) - and cherry tree shakers!  :) xoxo
