Baby Ryckie Benefit – Canaseraga NY

Rhiannon’s cousin Amy passed away early last year from pancreatic cancer. She was diagnosed the spring before – it moved so fast! To make it extra devastating, her partner had their first baby girl less than two weeks prior to her passing.

I had the privilege of working with Amy last year (the year she got sick) at Lincoln-Sudbury High School. It is a true testament of how good she was at her job to see how much her students and coworkers loved her!

Baby Ryckie (who’s first name is actually Amy – after her mother) is a beautiful, smart, fun girl, just like Amy and Lindsey. As a memorial to Amy, her family decided to host a benefit and give all the proceeds to baby Ryckie. It will be held in Canaseraga where we grew up – at the American Legion, on November 10. If you’re close by, be sure to stop in!

And, if you do go, you can have a chance to win a mini session from us! We’re donating a 30 minute family session to be held on December 14 at 9am – we’ll be in NY that weekend to celebrate Christmas with my side of the family. Be sure to have fun at the benefit for us – we can’t make it 🙁

Family Mini Sessions – Westborough, MA

We recently participated in a fundraiser for our church’s youth group to help raise money for a mission trip they will be taking this summer. They’re headed to Ensenada, Mexico to help at a YWAM base for the second year in a row. We offered mini sessions to families and donated money to the trip.

We had two families take us up on this deal – the Ryan family and the Fraher family – both were awesome, but very different families!

The Ryan family has older kids – middle school and high school age. It was so fun to watch their interactions together and hear some about their lives. They just moved to MA in the last year from the west coast. They are a silly bunch, that’s for sure – we laughed a lot with these folks.



The Fraher family has 2 young girls – both super-cute! Rhiannon again did a lot of silly things to get them looking at the camera as David shot that day. We’re convinced the key to working with young kids in a photo shoot is to keep things moving quickly so they don’t get too bored. Another good trick is to let them pick a pose, then you pick a pose, etc.

Mom and dad were great sports too in this shoot – willing to do anything to get the girls into it. They did silly walks, funny faces, and asked silly questions too. Again, we really enjoyed laughing and playing with the Fraher family!
