A Farewell to Summer in The Finger Lakes

September 19, 2023


Nestled in the heart of upstate New York, there’s a region that’s always held a special place in my heart: the Finger Lakes. With its rolling hills, pristine lakes, and lush vineyards, it’s the kind of place that inspires my photography.

It’s in the Finger Lakes region where Vi & Zach’s session took place. Their portraits are reminiscent of one last trip to the lake before Summer ends. Their portraits exude all the laid-back and fun energy that comes with soaking up summer’s last bit of warm weather.

Embracing the Magic of the Finger Lakes

The Finger Lakes region has always been an enchanting canvas for my photography, and during our recent photo session, I had the privilege of immersing myself in its breathtaking beauty once more. The Finger Lakes’ allure lies in its ability to transform every moment into a work of art.

Effortless Beauty in The Finger Lakes

Natural beauty was abundant during this session, with a shining sun, a calm lake, and warm sand. As Vi & Zach strolled hand in hand along the shoreline, the golden rays of the sun bathed them in a warm, romantic glow. Vi’s hair danced in the breeze, mirroring the gentle ripples of the lake. Zach, in his Ray-Bans and blue swim trunks, exuded an effortlessly cool and relaxed vibe that added an extra layer of charm to the session.

At home near the Lake. Ever-focused on the beauty of life's simple moments. 

I’ve spent years refining an approach that allows me to sincerely honor the moment — knowing when to step in and adjust a subject or environment, and sensing when to stand back and allow a moment to just be.

With me, your photographs will be an intentional representation of this time of your life — imagery that will make you feel like it was just yesterday, and yet, feel forever untouched by time.
