We had fun as we moved around the city streets, looking for just the right spots. I think my favorite part of the session is when little Vida, who had just recently turned three, said to Amie, "This is FUN Mama!" Pretty little Vida gave us a variety of sweet expressions as she danced and sat on the sidewalk in her cute tutu.  

I can't forget to mention the sweetest and funniest part of our session with Vida when were first getting started...She told us that that day she should be called Ariel, because that's who she is. This little doll has an amazing personality and imagination. If you just so happened to have walked by us that night on the streets of downtown Lockport you may have in heard a little of Vida and I singing some of Princess Ariel's big number "Part of Your World". I can't say that I was great, but I know Vida loved it and that's all that matters! I'll do whatever it takes!

Thank you to the Palladino Family for allowing us to once again photograph your sweet family!  We hope you enjoy the photo journal below of some favorites from the session to share with your family and friends!

Karen & Len | Married | Lockport, NY Wedding Photographer http://www.elmimages.com/blog/2017/6/karen-len-married-lockport-ny-wedding-photographer-buffalo-ny-wedding-photographer Karen & Len were married on Saturday, May 20th on a gorgeous, sunny Spring day! We first met up with Karen and Len at Milly's Inn Located in Wilson, NY for a quiet "First Look" before their ceremony. Karen looked like an angel as she walked through the grass toward Len where he was waiting to see her in her dress for the first time.  Len did try to sneak a peek earlier while she was getting ready but unbeknownst to him that was not allowed! Sorry about that Len! :)

They moved across the parking lot to the Sunset Bar & Grill for their outdoor ceremony overlooking the Wilson Marina. I have to say, for anyone looking for a quaint venue with amazing food, service and a beautiful atmosphere the Sunset Bar & Grill is the place for you! It was absolutely stunning! 

As you will see in the photo journal below there was so much joy, laughter and love as Karen and Len said their vows. We were so honored to be there to document it for them. 

Thank you Karen and Len for trusting us with this very special event in your life! Enjoy!

Click 101 | An Introduction to Digital Photography http://www.elmimages.com/blog/2017/3/click-101-an-introduction-to-digital-photography

I am so excited to officially announce my new course "Click 101! An Introduction to Digital Photography"! This is something I have been planning for a long time and have been waiting for the right time to offer it. If you own a DSLR and would love to get off of "Auto Mode" and learn how to use your camera manually, being in control of your settings, and want to learn how to document the things you love the most with your digital camera using natural light then this course is perfect for you! 

The Click 101! course includes three group sessions. Below are the details of what you can expect from each session:

Session One:  One two-hour introduction session to gain knowledge of using your Digital SLR camera on "Manual Mode". We will meet at my home in Lockport, NY for a round table, hands on session. My goal is to get you comfortable with understanding your camera and being in control of your photography using manual settings. It's time to learn how to really use that gorgeous camera you own and get off of "Auto" mode! I will have a Click 101! Intro to Digital Photography course guide for you to keep. Refreshments will also be provided.

Sessions Two and Three:  90-minute on-location sessions outdoors. We will work together as a group at an outdoor location in Lockport, NY where I will show you some tips and tricks to use toward photographing beautiful natural-light portraits using the basic camera knowledge from Session One and by applying the guidelines I will share with you about available light, composition and posing.

 

Session One is Saturday, July 1st from 10am to Noon. 

Session Two is Monday, July 10th from 7pm to 8:30pm (Rain date Wednesday July 12th)

Session Three is Monday, July 24th from 7pm to 8:30pm (Rain date Wednesday July 26th)

 

All class participants will have the opportunity to join a private group on Facebook administered by me to continue learning from each other. 

The fee for this course is $375. $175 non-refundable retainer is due upon booking. The remaining fee would be due at the time of the first session. There are only 5 spots available for the July course. Early birds can save $50 by booking their seat before May 1st. 

Already know your camera and off of "Auto Mode", or interested in Click 101! on a one-on-one basis? I am also offering one-on-one mentoring sessions beginning in August 2017. 

One-on-one sessions are best for individuals that want to dive deep into the in's and out's of learning their digital camera with the interest of one day being a professional photographer. We will start wherever you need to based upon your skill level. I can offer you the knowledge of using your tools, your camera and your lenses, as well as other important parts of photography like composition, light, and posing.  On the business side of things I can share with you tips about building a portfolio, building relationships with clients, selling your art, and so much more. I am happy to design the one-on-one session to meet your needs. What you learn from me all depends on what you want to invest in with me. One-on-one sessions begin at $225/hour. 

Please email me directly to register your spot for the Click 101! group sessions or for one-on-one mentoring. I look forward to hearing from you!

I can't wait to help you grow your love of digital photography!

Evelyn | Buffalo NY Newborn and Family Lifestyle Photographer http://www.elmimages.com/blog/2017/3/evelyn-buffalo-ny-newborn-and-family-lifestyle-photographer Beautiful little Evelyn was welcomed by her loving family in January. Here are some of my favorite moments documented at their home when Evelyn was just about two weeks old. This sweet family was a joy to photograph, especially Harper, Evelyn's big sister, who was thrilled to have the chance to jump on her Mom and Dad's bed. Sometimes when you are three you just need a little silly time in the middle of your new sister's photo session, at least that's what I think! I am glad Lauren and Andrew, Harper and Evelyn's parents, agreed. 

Be sure to notice Evelyn's gorgeous nursery. The light creamy beige walls, the touches of gold and little bits of sparkle, the shades of teal and blush throughout. It's a beautiful, airy, and comfortable space for Evelyn to grow into. Lauren enlisted the help of her dear friend Katie who has a talent for interior design and styling. You can see her work here on her blog Citydwellin. Katie is available to help you with your home, too! Check out her blog to see what she's all about!

Thank you to Lauren and Andrew for allowing me to photograph your beautiful family! I'm looking forward to seeing you all again in June when Evelyn in 6 months old! I just adore those mid year milestone sessions! It's going to be so wonderful to see how she's grown!

XOXO,

Liz

Gracie | One Year & Cake Smash | Buffalo, NY Family Photographer http://www.elmimages.com/blog/2017/2/gracie-one-year-cake-smash-buffalo-ny-family-photographer Gracie, a gorgeous little blue-eyed beauty, is one! A little less than a month ago I spent a few hours with Gracie and her family at home to celebrate Gracie turning one with a family photo session and cake smash! Before I show you my most recent favorite moments with Gracie let's take a little trip down memory lane through Gracie's first year; as a newborn in the hospital and at home, as a 6 month old just figuring out how to sit-up on her own and then as a one year old at home with her family! It's been a fun year watching Gracie grow! I was so honored that Gracie's parents trusted me to document her first year, just as they had with her incredibly adorable older sister Charlotte! 

Enjoy!

 

At the hospital meeting Gracie...

At home at 10 days old...

In July at 6 months old...

And then finally, one year old at home with her family...

Margo and Family | Lockport, NY Family Photographer http://www.elmimages.com/blog/2017/2/margo-and-family-lockport-ny-family-photographer It was a cold and windy early January Saturday afternoon when I met up with Margo, Chris and their kids for an outdoor family session in downtown Lockport, NY. They had plans to be out and about celebrating Chris's birthday and Margo thought it would be great to capture some updated family photos, so she called on me to do the job! Thank you for thinking of me Margo!  It was a very chilly day, as in my fingers were frozen and couldn't move them kind of chilly day, but this family was so willing to endure the cold, they did an awesome job putting on their smiles (or “blue steels” as the kids requested) and we all had a great time! 

I first met Margo and her son Tyler a few years ago when I was hired to photograph Tyler for his high school Senior portraits. At the end of this blog I will share with you a few images from Tyler's Senior portrait session. We captured some pretty amazing moments that are still some of my all time favorites ever. And hey folks, speaking of high school Seniors, I would be remiss not to mention that I am currently booking sessions for 2017 and 2018 high school graduates now! Sessions will take place in the evening July through September 2017. So, if you are checking out this blog and you have or know a high school Senior that would love a customized senior portrait session with me, spread the word that Liz from ELM Images is your photog for the job! Call 716-393-9ELM today!   

Okay, my commercial is over...Now onto the much awaited highlights of Margo, Chris, and their sweet, adorable and super fun family!  I've been told that friends and family of Margo's, Chris's, and especially their kids' have been patiently waiting for these to be shared online! So here they are! Enjoy everyone!

XOXO,

Liz

 

And now as promised a few images looking back on Tyler's high school Senior portrait session. Thank you again to Margo and Chris for trusting me with documenting special moments for your family!

Karin and Paul said "I do" in front of their close friends and family on a beautiful fall day! There was so much love, joy and laughter to experience on their wedding day. Everything was perfect, from her dress, to his tux to their 1931 Pierce Arrow getaway car! It was as if we were transported into the 1930's at the gorgeous Butler Mansion in Buffalo, NY.  Please enjoy some of our favorite moments captured in the photo journal below. Thank you!

Samantha | Lockport, NY High School Senior Photographer http://www.elmimages.com/blog/2016/12/samantha-lockport-ny-high-school-senior-photographer-buffalo-ny-senior-photographer This is Samantha, a brilliant, gorgeous and soon-to-be Lockport High School 2017 graduate. We had such a fun session exploring some lovely areas of Buffalo, NY in early November on a late Saturday afternoon. We weren't sure if the weather and wind were going to work with us or against us, but in my experience I have found that a little wind with long amazing hair makes for some really great Hollywood hair moments in photos, and this holds very true with Sam's session, too!

Samantha was my last senior for the 2016 photo season. Sam is another young woman entering into higher learning that sustains my belief in our future. I have had the best time getting to know these amazing young teens, and all happened to be ladies this year! I feel incredibly honored every time a family calls me to capture their children at this important time in their lives. I strive to photograph their sense of self, of style, and when ever possible incorporate what they love. 

Thank you to Samantha's Mom Lisa for trusting me, and for allowing me to get a few photos of her with her sweet girl, too!

Below are my favorite moments from Sam's beautiful, colorful, perfectly windy, senior photo session.  Enjoy!

XOXO,

Liz

Olivia | Newborn Lifestyle Family Photographer | Lockport, NY http://www.elmimages.com/blog/2016/11/olivia-newborn-lifestyle-family-photographer-lockport-ny-buffalo-ny Pretty little Olivia arrived in September 17, 2016. Below are highlights from Olivia's newborn session at home with her gorgeous Momma, her Marine Corps Veteran Daddy, and her two furry siblings, Mona and Chester. This is one sweet family that I just love. It was so wonderful to witness my friends hold and adore their sweet baby girl. 

Before we move on to the images from Olivia's newborn session I want wish a very Happy Birthday to the United States Marine Corps! I also want to wish all of our United States Veterans a Happy Veterans Day, on November 11th. Thank you for protecting our country, for leaving your families and friends to defend the Constitution from enemies foreign and domestic. Thank you to the families that are left behind for continuing on without your soldier while they are deployed. Thank you for raising your babies, going to work, paying the bills, making day to day decisions and protecting your own families as a single parent until your soldiers return home safe and sound.

To Olivia's parents, my friends, I love you both. I am so happy you have your baby girl. She's perfect. Thank you for allowing me to capture some of your precious first moments as a new family at home with Olivia.

XOXO,

Liz

Madison | Lockport, NY Senior Photographer http://www.elmimages.com/blog/2016/9/madison-lockport-ny-senior-photographer-buffalo-senior-photographer In August I had the opportunity to photograph this gorgeous girl, Madison, an upcoming 2017 graduate from Lockport High School. Not only is she beautiful, but she's kind, intelligent and incredibly down to earth. This girl is going places, trust me! Since Madison was born and raised in Lockport, NY her parents wanted to incorporate the best of her hometown into her photos. I couldn't think of anything more "Lockport" than the Erie Canal and our historic Locks. Below are some of my favorite moments from Madison's session.  Enjoy!

Our girls got their back to school hair cuts today at our favorite salon here in Lockport, NY The Bish Studio Salon. Kevin and Christina Bish have been stylin' and profilin' our family for the past 5 years. Up until today our girls always got trims, maybe an inch or two cut off here and there. Cecilia, our oldest, has been pretty much growing her hair out for the past nine years, on a few occasions she's maybe cut up to 4 or 5 inches off, but today she wanted to donate her hair to Pantene Beautiful Lentghs so she was about to say good-bye to at least 10 inches. 

Josie was in the mood for a change, she wanted her bouncy curls to rest on her shoulders like they did a few years ago so she decided to cut a few inches off, too. Below is a photo journal of out fun time at with the Bish's as they once again gave us a fresh look for back to school!  Thanks for taking such great care of our family Kevin and Christina!  

To all the parents out there, good luck with all of your Back to School to-do's. Here's to the next eleven days!

Halie | Akron, NY High School Senior Photographer http://www.elmimages.com/blog/2016/8/halie-akron-ny-high-school-senior-photographer Here's a look at some of the favorite moments from Halie's insanely fun High School Senior Photo Session we had in Wilson, NY last month. She grew up spending most of her summers there so this location was very special to her and her family. We went to every possible little nook and cranny to find great backdrops for Halie! I can't say I have a favorite outfit or moment captured because this girl rocked every single frame I shot of her! She was full of expression and willing to try anything! I only asked her to twirl in her pretty Junior Prom dress about 457 times. I probably could have had her twirl a few more!  I'm pretty sure she had as much fun as I did! 

Thank you to her amazing parents for allowing me to photograph their gorgeous girl! Here's to an awesome Senior year at Akron High School, Halie! 

XOXO,

Liz
