”My mother is my root, my foundation. She planted the seed that I base my life on, and that is the belief that the ability to achieve starts in your mind.” – Michael Jordan

Nicole and her son, Adequin have a very special bond. I am so happy they came out to Botanical Gardens to model for me. I had  photographed Adequin in the fall and realized then, that their bond is beautiful. I asked them to model for my Botanical Gardens Mother's Day Sessions because I knew I could capture images that would illustrate how incredible their bond is, promoting this special event.


Why Maternity?

Angela

"Before you were born I carried you under my heart. From the moment you arrived in this world until the moment I leave it, I will always carry you in my heart." - Mandy Harrison

We had the opportunity to photograph Angela's maternity session in the studio a couple weeks ago. She is a Buffalo Model that wanted photos to announce her pregnancy to the world. We spend a lot of time making sure she had the best photos to show her friends and family. We want to share a few of our favorite photos from the shoot.

 

 

 

 

Why should you book a maternity session?

 

  1. Every pregnancy is different. It is a milestone in your life. It is very important to document this precious time in your life. It does not matter is it's your first child or your fifth, take the opportunity to capture that beautiful pregnancy glow.
  2. Use this day to spoil yourself! It is important to feel your best. Get your hair and makeup done, go buy that gown you've been looking at for months now... You will have these photos forever so make them perfect!
  3. This is a great opportunity to share precious moments with your child, as they grow older. This is the chance to create once in a lifetime memories. When the child is older, they will be amazed to see the lovely photos of their mom, while they were growing inside of you.
  4. A maternity session is a great way to bond with your partner, as it allows you to stop and appreciate them. Getting dad involved can help him bond with the baby and create extra special memories. If you have children already, bring them along. This allows the siblings to bond and appreciate this exciting time.
  5. The possibilities are endless! This is your chance to get creative. Here at Wilmack Photography, we will go above and beyond to create beautiful images to share with your friends and family. Whether you are looking for a stylized shoot or a simple studio session, we are excited to be apart of this experience.

 


What to Wear - Easter Mini Session


Easter Mini Sessions are upon us and you may be wondering what to dress your children in. Well, we can offer you some tips so that your photos turn out fantastic. There will be samples in this post you can reference and a list of what to and not to wear.

Easter is the time to break out those cute pastel colors you've been dying to put on your kids, all winter long. If you have not gone shopping yet, you better go soon before all the good outfits are gone! Macy's, Burlington, Kohl's, and more have super cute outfits for your little boy or girl.

Dresses & Suits of course, are PERFECT! The backdrop that we decided on for our Easter mini sessions this year has a vintage look to it. There are many dresses and suits out there that can work well with this backdrop. I encourage you to avoid the "everyday" look and to go for a dressed up, pampered look.

What to Wear

- Light / Pastel Outfit
- Bows & Other Cute Hair Accessories
- Dress Shoes

What NOT to Wear

- Bright Saturated Colored Outfit
- Sneakers or Winter Boots
- Random Printed Shirts (No Barbie, Bratz, Minecraft  etc.)
- "Shiny" Clothes (Nothing that will reflect light too much)
- Baseball caps/Beanies

 

SAMPLES:

This dress is was found on Amazon and its adorable, simple, and perfect for Easter. You do not HAVE to go with the typical pink for girls and blue for boys. Change it up and go for a unique look.

This is adorable! The colors are fantastic! You can find this one at Macy's.

Boys can have simple button ups and dress pants. This is found at Carters.

You can also go the cute vintage route with this! This is on Amazon.

Family Portraits - See the Shoot

A Family session in the heart of Williamsville

Here are some samples from a fun little family session in Williamsville.  We caught some nice afternoon light, which is my absolute favorite.  Unfortunately, it's always a balance between what is possible as a photographer and what is practical for a family.  I'm really excited to share some heartwarming images of this young family.  Thank you!

 

We're here!

 

Daddy's always know how to get a good laugh

 

One of my favorites from the session.

 

Sometimes with little ones we just need to give a space.

Session Pricing

The best time of year for outdoor photography in WNY is fall.  The light is sweet and shadows grow long.  Even the time of day we catch good light is perfect, after work but not so late that it kills bedtime schedules.

All "In-Studio" Family Portrait sessions include both indoor and outdoor pictures at no extra charge.

Portrait_studio

"On-Location" Family Sessions are priced the sames as "In-Studio, but do not include any traditional studio photography.  For location shoots, your imagination is the only limitation.  I've photographed families everywhere from in the woods at family cabins to beaches, downtown Buffalo, the waterfront, parks, ski areas... If you can dream it, I will make it look good!
