The sunset, the quiet beach all to ourselves, and the warm, calm water; everything about this session was a dream. Mama planned to hop in the lake for a few photos as summer came to an end in Rochester. Neither of us could believe it when Lake Ontario felt like a nice warm bath.
It was an unexpected surprise when big brother asked to swim with mama, and just a photographer’s dream moment, so beautiful and authentic.
When I look at this family’s pictures, I can feel the joy of the evening. The images of mama’s perfect belly in the lake especially take me right back to the calm and peace and overwhelming love.
