Newborn Maxwell | Buffalo Newborn Lifestyle Photography | Wendy Mitchell Photography

Recently I was invited to the home of Sarah & Rich to photograph them with their first (canine) baby, Bentley, and their new (human) baby, Maxwell!

Rich’s mom knit this beautiful blanket, cap, and booties set!

Rich told me he’d never held a baby before Max, but he picked it up pretty quickly!

Max’s aunt is a children’s librarian, so she is making sure his nursery is well-stocked with books!

Bentley made very sure that Max felt loved throughout the session.

Seeing a new mommy gaze at her little one the way Sarah does is so beautiful.

Okay, okay, it wasn’t 100% peachy keen the whole time, haha.

Anyone who knows my work knows I have a thing for tiny baby feet!!

Such a good big brother.  <3  Best buds for life!

Newborn Noah | Buffalo Newborn Lifestyle Photography | Wendy Mitchell Photography

I was invited to Fairport to photograph newborn baby Noah, the sweet baby boy of Jessica & Dave whose wedding I photographed a couple years ago!

I photographed their engagement session in October 2013, wedding in June 2014, and now their expanded family in November 2017!

His adorable nursery was decorated with whales!

Sleepy babies are oh so peaceful!

Baby yawns <3

Holding tight to daddy’s finger – he had such a good grip for such a new little guy!

Kevin & Emily – October 28, 2017 | The Atrium @ Rich’s | Buffalo Wedding Photography

Kevin & Emily took a rainy day in the end of October and made the best of it with smiles on their faces!

Emily got ready at home with her bridesmaids, parents, brothers, and precious dachshund Jack!

I first met Emily five years ago at her cousin Molly’s wedding to Joe in Rochester.  Now Molly is getting ready to have their first baby in just a few short weeks!

Emily and Kevin got married at Holy Family in South Buffalo in a ceremony performed by her uncle.

After the church we made the decision to go ahead with the original plan, which was to head to the Japanese Gardens in Delaware Park. Thankfully one of the maids of honor had stopped and bought a set of matching umbrellas “just in case” and we definitely did need them.

Do we file this under “Brothers gotta hug”?

We’re all very thankful it was raining lightly enough that we could put the umbrellas down for plenty of the pictures too.

Nick was very helpful with umbrella wrangling, and even offered to hold one over me (thankfully I’d also packed my rain coat!).

The bouquets were from William’s Florist – aren’t they gorgeous?!

This was just some random guy riding his bike through the park.  Hope you’re okay with being on my blog, sir!

We headed down to their reception at The Atrium @ Rich’s. I knew they had remodeled a few years ago but I hadn’t been inside since then. It was gorgeous!

Kevin & Emily shared their first dance and their dances with their parents before everyone sat for a great dinner.

Loved how she included their dachshund Jack on their cake topper!

I have to confess I’d forgotten about this tradition after Joe & Molly’s wedding, but the memories came right back!

Toy Bros kept the dance floor busy – loved some of these action shots!

Congratulations on a lovely day to celebrate your marriage and to bring together everyone near & dear to you. I hope you enjoyed it all despite the rain, and that your honeymoon features much nicer weather!

Jeffrey & Melissa – October 20, 2017 | Samuel’s Grande Manor | Buffalo Wedding Photography

I photographed Melissa’s sister Samantha’s wedding 4 years ago, but when Melissa emailed me, she didn’t say that.  Maybe I should have recognized the last name, but over 3 years had passed and it’s not a super unique last name.  I set up a meeting with her and Jeff, and as we sat & discussed their wedding, Melissa still didn’t mention that we’d met before.  I never realized the connection until I was driving down the street to her parents’ house.  I had sudden deja vu – I knew I’d been on that street before.  When I pulled into the driveway and saw the covered classic car in the driveway, I realized why I’d been there before. I knocked on the door and was greeted by Melissa’s mom Jodi, and welcomed into their house for the second time.  Sam was in the kitchen with her daughter and we hugged and I said I couldn’t believe I hadn’t realized til that moment.  She laughed and said that seemed like Melissa, that she just wouldn’t think it was important to mention it.  How funny.

Melissa & her girls all got ready at her parents’ house before we left to drive over to Samuel’s Grande Manor in Williamsville.

Melissa’s tattoo is in honor of her brother Matt, who just finished a round of treatment for Leukemia.

When I arrived at Samuel’s, Jeff & the guys were already out back, and I was able to get some photos with them before guests began to arrive.  I hadn’t photographed a ceremony at Samuel’s since Samantha & Justin’s, and the ceremony gazebo is completely different now!

The ceremony was short & sweet.  Afterwards, we gathered together to blast through the remaining portraits!

The flower girl like literally couldn’t even.

Their cocktail hour & dinner was in the center room at Samuel’s, and the uplighting was really pretty!  The buffet line had a little something for everyone, and after dinner they not only served wedding cake but also had a late-night donut bar featuring a selection of Paula’s Donuts with take-home bags!

The dancefloor had some pretty funny moments so I just kept circling and keeping my eyes open for the best moments!  Sam showed me this picture (marked 2013) from her wedding and said she & her siblings wanted to somewhat re-create it.  Very cool moment!

Jeff & Melissa – congratulations!  Not that it would have made any difference really if you’d told me you were Sam’s sister, but I just wish I’d known!  It was great to work with your family again, and meet your family Jeff. Congratulations on having such a fun & relaxed wedding!!
