The most personalized
portrait experience, ever.

We are a low volume studio focused exclusively on high quality. We take on very few sessions each month in order to give each of our clients an exceptional experience with high quality portraits and artwork to match. Your comfort, your child's safety, and providing heirloom artwork are just a few of our core values as a portrait studio.

The most personalized
portrait experience, ever.


Sarah was super helpful and great to work with. She was able to get some great pictures of our newborn and we were very happy with the results! Sarah was also very personable and welcoming, making both my wife and I feel at ease with someone working with our 10 day old. I would gladly recommend her to anyone who asked!


My fiancé and I brought our newborn here for photos, we had a totally incredible experience! Sarah is professional, very friendly and great at what she does. I would highly recommend.



We just had family photos done with Sarah, and I am blown away. She was amazing with our two kids - so patient and engaging - and she got the most beautiful shots of our family! I was shocked at how good they turned out. She’s a 10/10 and we will definitely be booking her again in the future!

We love Sarah! She is an amazing photographer, we have used her for the past 4 years for our family pictures. We will continue to use her in the future. She is patient, and great with kids!


10/10 recommend. Sarah is so kind and wonderful to work with. She takes the best pictures of my kids and family. We've used her a couple times and look forward to using her for years to come for all our family pictures!


We absolutely love all the pictures that Sarah has done for us! From maternity pictures to our first Christmas mini photo shoot she is absolutely amazing!


Sarah was amazing! Our son was cranky from a long day and somehow she managed to get him to smile and throw in an occasional giggle! Thank you for a great session!


Sarah did an amazing job! She made sure to get all the detail shots we asked for and helped us feel super comfortable.


Can you believe that your baby is already turning one?! I've been there with my girls and I swear by the feeling that the first year is some sort of time travel. Trust me when I say that you will cherish looking back on their first birthday pictures (and maybe cry a little, lol).

Cake smash photography in Buffalo, NY


All of our canvases are professionally printed on 400 gsm cotton- poly blend fabric with a standard archival value of 100 years.


Heirloom quality artwork

All of our prints have a standard archival value of 100 years in home display, or 200 years in dark storage. All prints are finished with a lustre coating to prevent fading and finished with a linen texture.


Our handcrafted keepsake boxes include professional 8x10 prints matted to 11x14 on museum grade, acid wicking mats. These are popular for their versatility as they can be displayed in your home in the box or individually framed.



Years after your session, I don't want you to be searching through lost files for your gallery (or worse, looking for files that have since corrupted). Rather, imagine your home filled with lasting, archival artwork of your family. Whether it's a stunning portrait hanging on the wall or an album to flip through on your coffee table, you’ll be able to look back at these images for years after they were taken to see how you and your family have grown. You'll get the matching digital file with each product purchased as well, but I promise that in 10 years you will appreciate the printed artwork more than anything else.

The First Birthday Experience


Frequently Asked Questions

Do you provide the cake?
Yes! Cakes are included in all first birthday sessions if you choose to include one. The design of the cake is something we will go over together during your design consultation.

Are family or sibling photos included in the session?
Absolutely! This is a big milestone for your baby, and I believe that it deserves to be celebrated with everyone he or she loves the most! Siblings and parents are more than welcome to be included in the session.

Do you offer themed sessions (Disney, characters, etc)?
My specialty is simple sessions that are congruent with the images in my portfolio, however I do accommodate special requests for themed sessions as well. We can discuss what an ideal session for your baby would look like at your design consultation.

Do I need to bring the balloons? Can I bring my own decorations?
Balloon garlands are included in every session at no extra charge! We will discuss colors that will work with your chosen color scheme at your design consultation and I will have it put together for you before your session. You are welcome to bring any additional decorations you'd like to include, though they are not required.

Do I need to bring outfits for the baby?
I have everything you could possibly need at the studio including a client closet of outfits, high end props, headbands, hats, accessories, and even the basics such as diapers, sterilized pacifiers, and a bottle warmer. Unless there's something specific you want to bring, all you need to bring is yourself and the baby!

Where is your studio located?
The address of my studio is 21 Elm St., East Aurora, NY 14052

What happens if my baby is fussy?
It's common for one year olds to have separation anxiety when their parent sets them down on a photo set and walks away. Snacks and distractions are my go-to, but if those aren't working, sometimes I will have a parent sit on the set with them for a few minutes to help them get used to the new environment.
