Local Boutique Event Photography
I had the pleasure of doing local boutique event photography for Talulah Belle‘s private shopping event last week! What a wonderful boutique with a warm, inviting smell and atmosphere. While taking photographs at the boutique’s event I also captured images of their gorgeous, classy displays for their social media. They have gifts for all ages so I also shared to my social media. I love partnering with local businesses, as we help to build each other up. Photographs, that are not stock photography, help with both SEO / Search Engine Optimization for websites and gaining attention on social media.
When planning an event don’t forget to contact and book a local photographer for event photography. They will be there to capture and save all that you put into the event, from party favors, to special decor and the moments of the event. These photographs are a great way to freshen your website, and post to social media for more engagement and we all know that is key! So don’t spread yourself too thin and let the professional photographer do their thing! Don’t forget alt tags for your images on your website and/or blog and if you don’t know what that is just ask your photographer for help. I’m always happy to help my clients with the techie things I know, and I’m happy to share. A professional photographer will also supply your images optimized to the right settings for web and print use.
Local Boutique Event photography is just the beginning. What type of event photography do you need… awards ceremony, charity event, holiday event, customer appreciation, or just an every day capture of your business location and your products. I also specialize in personal branding and headshot sessions. These can be done right at your location which is a great way to incorporate your style into your session.

A Senior Prom Photo Session are a great way to savor this day that so much thought and planning goes into. Hang on to this special day with professional senior prom photo session. These senior prom portraits are sure to be treasured. I’d love to help with some tips along the way with prom planning and finding the right gown or suit.
My daughter starting shopping for a prom dress in January of her senior year. Lulus.com is a great on-line choice and she ordered one from there in a beautiful wine color. It was beautiful but she continued her search. She is very into nature and loves flowers and somewhat of a sweet, simple vintage feel. We googled dresses with floral overlays and came across this dress found at Reformation. She fell in love with it! As a photographer for both weddings and portraits I have come up with a list of a couple things to look for or avoid in special clothing. Once we saw the dress in person we were really impressed. I liked that the seam of the dress was not right at the top but at least a 1/2″ inside the dress. I’ve noticed clothing in the past that curls down due to the seam so that issue is resolved with this dress. The back was smocked in the back making for a comfortable dress that moves with you. When buying an dress don’t just make sure it looks good while standing straight but with moving, sitting, bending… I also liked how the slit overlapped. The soft satin material and sweet floral print was just right for my daughter’s style. Another big reason she chose this dress is Reformation’s reputation as a sustainable women’s clothing company. All this means a lot to my daughter, making this a great choice for her, as well as fitting into our budget. For men’s suits I also recommend Milano Tailor. They have a great selection of suits, at a great price and it includes tailoring. This business is so well run. My sons have gotten a lot of use out of their suits. If you are not local to Rochester make sure to search out your local tailors and see if they sell suits.
Don’t forget to plan ahead for prom. Decide if you want to spend the money on professional hair, makeup and/or nails. We decided to go with professional hair styling at Ruby and Clover Hairdressing in Rochester. We wanted a hair style to last through the evening and we felt that after the right dress the hair was the next most important thing. My daughter did her own makeup and nails. She did a variation of a french manicure with sage green tips.
Senior Prom Photo Session
For this Prom Photo Session we made a stop at a covered porch since we were not so lucky with the weather that day.
I hope this has been helpful to you in planning for your son or daughter’s prom. Don’t forget the prom portraits! I’d love to help with your child’s senior portrait session and help with the processes from beginning to end! From What to Wear and How to Prepare to great products with your portraits I’m here to help!

Professional Event Photography
You’ve put in the work planning the perfect party. It passes so fast, remember your wedding? It’s a great idea to have a professional photographer at your event to capture your Senior Graduation Celebration and all the details you have put together to celebrate your senior. Capture that collection of sports jerseys, t-shirts from plays, band camp and more. Savor the sight of the table adorned with recognition from high school events, certifications and academic awards. Even more importantly capture your high school seniors support team, made up of family and friends that supported you and them through the years and have joined together to celebrate your high school senior. Enjoy your party and let a professional photographer capture your event. Ask about the best way to preserve these images from your graduation celebration.
Senior Portraits with Personality
Your High School Senior’s portrait session shouldn’t end with digital files that you may lose track of over time. We all lead busy lives so let’s get those images printed and enjoyed now and for years to come. I hope you have the wall art you can look at to bring a smile to you every day. I hope you have an album to take enjoy when you need trip down memory lane, or when that college friend comes to visit, or share moments together with family and friends. Thank you to my clients that have let me enter their lives and get to know their senior and have worked with me to bring you these images of this special time. And to those with upcoming seniors just looking to figure this all out… Welcome! I look forward to getting to know your senior and walk you through the process, to answer all your questions, and make this a great experience for you and your high school senior.

Let’s celebrate with this Seniors Class of 2022 Video!
It was such a pleasure capturing Class of 2022 senior portraits. I’m honored that you chose pArt of Life Photography. Come and see just what fun they had! I love getting to know my seniors. It’s great to hear what classes they are taking and what their plans are for the future, even if they don’t have a sure path yet, which is totally understandable in my book. I ask them about clubs and maybe a part time job. It’s great when they can forget to be self-conscience and just enjoy themselves. And the corny jokes are always free! I bought this Senior 2022 sign on Etsy and it was fun to hand it over during the session for each one to commemorate their accomplishment and their own role as a member of the Senior Class of 2022! Cue the confetti!
Let’s all celebrate that the Class of 2022 is in their final stretch of high school. College applications have been submitted and pretty much any grades that their college will look at are behind them. Now’s it time to talk Spring celebrations and graduation. By they way, there are custom cards to help you announce that. 🙂 So parents, sit back and enjoy and congratulate yourselves. You have been through enough with checking on college applications, making sure they eat and sleep and so much more. I strive to make the senior portrait experience a smooth process to be enjoyed by your senior and you! Now you can also breathe a sigh of relief and flip through the gorgeous images in the album created for your senior, hang those portraits on the wall, or admire that captured look that you love in that beautiful matted print on display in your windowed wooden folio box, that one with the black velvet inside holding your other matted print treasures!
