I’m not going to lie, I’ve still been feeling a little down in the dumps this week. Thankful. Blessed...but definitely still a little low. I’m not going to dwell on though. I’m choosing to focus on the positive and what I’m thankful & grateful for. I’m thankful for Jesus. I’m grateful for my family. I’m thankful that it’s going to be 62° tomorrow (when plenty of years we’ve had snow), I’m grateful for my health, food, shelter, clothing, running water....and I’m thankful for my dog. What are you thankful for today? Please share. I’m sure it’ll brighten up my day and will bless other too! . . . . . . . #kristytascaphotography #buffalophotographer #wnyphotographer #seniorphotographer #seniorphotography #corona #coronavirus #covid_19 #syracuse #syracuseuniversity #portraitpage #stunning_shots #portrait_perfection #dearestviewfinder #jjcommunity #photobugcommunity #curlyhair #biracial #melanin #melaninpoppin #naturalhair #newyorkphotographer #nycphotographer #modernteenstyle #senioryearmagazine #modernsenior #seniorinspire #seniorstyleguide #thankful #grateful

Let’s talk weddings & Covid-19. I hate that so many couples are in a position of having to decide whether to postpone, elope, or keep your current date knowing that’s its risky. Here are a few recommendations: If you are looking into postponing/changing your date, PLEASE not only check with the vendor for your reception, but also check with your photographer to make sure we’re available. We definitely want to work with you and are invested in all of our couples so it’s greatly appreciated when you check BEFORE switching. We’d hate to not be available for your big day. 2020 couples that need to switch dates and couples who are getting married in 2021, I highly recommend that you schedule your date NOW. Tons of 2020 couples are switching their date to 2021, which means a lot more slim pickings for dates for couples getting married in 2021. I’d hate to see you sit on it and then can’t find a photographer who’s available. Another option is to keep your current wedding date (if it’s for a few months down the road), get married on that day with just your closest people (and photographer of course) and have the reception/party at a later date. There are options. Don’t panic. Don’t let stress and anxiety take over. Let us help you. We’re happy to help. I just worked things out with a banquet hall, a DJ, and florist. We successfully helped get a date switched for a bride, it took the stress off of her and now she can breath a sigh of relief. Involve us. We want to help and we’re happy to. It’ll all work out! . . . . . . #kristytascaphotography #buffalophotographer #wnyphotographer #buffaloweddingphotographer #elopementphotographer #wanderingweddings #belovedweddingstories #muchlove_ig #couplescollective #loveandwildhearts #crazyloveandwildkisses #dirtybootsandmessyhair #buffaloindieweddings #cuttingthecake #weddinginspiration #radlovestories #adventurephotographer #covid #coronavirus #corona #justalittleloveinspo #soloverly #thatsdarling #weddingelopement

Anyone else extremely grumpy today? So many things got on my nerves. Nothing major happened, I’ve just been feeling super emotional, a little sad and aggravated today...BUT then I started looking at images of these two and my whole mood changed. These two are the epitome of sweetness, love, respect, and kindness. They were my reminder today that there are blessings all around us. People to turn to. Hope. Joy. Care. I’m giving myself permission to be in a bad mood today. I’m also giving myself a swift kick in the pants to snap back to reality tomorrow. . . . . . . . #kristytascaphotography #buffalophotographer #weddingphotographer #fallingblackinlove #melanin #melaninpoppin #buffaloindieweddings #youyourwedding #theblackbridalexperience #photobugcommunity #belovedstories #radlovestories #loveandwildhearts #dirtybootsandmessyhair #wanderingweddings #authenticlovemag #unscriptedposingapp #anotherwildstory #justalittleloveinfo #livethelittlethings #thatsdarling #biracialcouples #youngandwildstories #wanderingweddings #shesaidyes #muchlove_ig #youyourwedding #crazyloveandwildkisses #belovedstories #couplescollective #belovedweddingstories #weddingelopement

It’s hard to believe Easter is only 10 days away, isn’t it?! We typically go to church, go out for brunch and then stop by our Aunt’s house for an Easter Egg Hunt with all of the kids. Obviously, this year will be different. We’ll likely have our own church service at home, a little Easter Egg Hunt and eat some good food. What about you guys? What do you have planned at home? Are you including any traditions? Comment below any plans for Easter at home this year, foods you intend to eat or ideas. I’d love to hear! ➕🐇🍽 . . . . . . #kristytascaphotography #buffalophotographer #wnyphotographer #littlebellows #thephotographerwithin #subjectlight #letthekids #lightinspired #familyphotographer #clickinmoms #childhoodunplugged #momtogs #dearphotographer #candidchildhood #momazine #thebloomforum #thelifestylecollective #thefamilynarrative #dearestviewfinder #magicofchdhood #galleryoflightfeature #thesincerestoryteller #talesofthemoment #ourlightwithin #thechildrenoftheworld #pixel_kids #easter #childphotography #tradition #mom_hub

I’d like to breakdown a few misconceptions about elopements. Elopements aren’t usually settling on what you really want due to budget instead of having a big wedding. They typically aren’t just a quickie courthouse wedding. They aren’t just because you’re expecting and want to get married first. They are about the two of you. They are about making your day unique and special just like your relationship. They don’t have to mean climbing 10 miles up a mountain or running off to somewhere tropical (they can be, and I’m 100% down for doing the above or keeping it simple). Elopements don’t have to just include the two of you, they can, but they can also include your closest family & friends. Lots of people consider eloping but say things like “But I’d want my parents there and my best friend so eloping is off the table”. It doesn’t have to be off the table. Eloping doesn’t have to be your plan B. It can be your first choice. It can be epic. It can be intimate and amazing. Maybe you don’t want to walk down and aisle in front of 200 people, maybe you don’t want to incorporate the elements of a traditional wedding. Eloping doesn’t have to be your sad, backup plan due to the Covid-19. It can be an amazing option that we can make so cool and a day beyond your wildest dreams. Maybe you’d rather spend your hard earned money on traveling to the place of your dreams & getting married there instead of spending $50+ per plate for people you haven’t seen in 10 years and barely know. Be open-minded. Weigh all of your options before you eliminate an elopement. No matter what your preferences are, we can create and customize a day that’s for you and about you. It can be a traditional wedding, a non-traditional wedding or an epic elopement. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or want to know more. • • • • • • • #kristytascaphotography #buffalophotographer #wnyphotographer #wedphotoinspiration #greenweddingshoes #wayupnorth #radlovestories #loveandwildhearts #dirtybootsandmessyhair #wildelopements #authenticlovemag #elopementlove #anotherwildstory #justalittleloveinfo #thatsdarling #soloverly #unscriptedposingapp #wanderingweddings.

Praying for all of the expectant Mom’s, new Mom’s, newborns and ALL of the healthcare workers who are selflessly, tirelessly & sacrificially working to help so many people.

Hi guys! 👋 It’s me, Kristy! I figured I’d hop on and introduce myself since a lot of you are new to my page. This June will be 9 years that I’ve been on this amazing journey📷. I can genuinely say that I’ve never been more passionate and excited about photography. I love it more and more with each passing day. I go to bed late and wake up early thinking, planning and envisioning sessions, poses, styled shoots and more. I cannot wait to get back out there and work with so many of you! I love the Lord, my family, traveling, going out to eat and I’m a sucker for double chocolatey chip Frappuccino’s. I’ve been married to my amazing husband for 20 years. Cheerleading was a huge part of my life and will always be near and dear to my heart. I coached for 25 years+ (more than half my life). My daughter cheers for Syracuse University 🍊 so it’s awesome to be able to watch her cheer in the Dome. (Elite Heat will always be a part of my life whether I’m coaching there or not. It’s family). Both of my boys (16 & 10) are very active in sports. I love watching them play🏀🏈⚾️. Thanks for stopping by my page. I truly appreciate your follow, likes, comments and shares. You guys are a blessing. Let’s keep supporting each other during this time. We all need it. So many ups and downs. Let’s be a part of why someone is up today! ❤️❤️ • • • • • • • • #kristytascaphotography #buffalophotographer #wnyphotographer #weddingphotographer #belovedstories #familyphotographer #newbornphotographer #dirtybootsandmessyhair #wanderingphotographers #torontophotographer #seniorphotographer #theweddinglegends #anotherwildstory #syracuseuniversity #livethelittlethings #thatsdarling #upstatenyphotographer #headshotphotographer #crazyloveandwildkisses #elopementlove #soloverly #nycphotographer #womanownedbusiness #womanowned #womanownedsmallbusiness #buffalo #blackfemalephotographer #blackfemaleentrepreneurs #munaluchi #upstateweddingphotographer

✨💫MAKE TODAY MAGICAL✨💫 •We’re all a little cooped up these days. Make a point of making today different. Make it magical. Switch it up. If you normally walk in the same location, find a new spot today. Sometimes little changes break the day up and awaken something in you. If you’re not working, or when you’re finished working, do some new activities, bake something, watch something you’ve never seen. Find some joy. Everyday the Lord wakes us up is a blessing. Appreciate the gift we’ve been given by making the most of it. Try not to wallow today. Create, laugh, smile, pray, have fun. I’m going to make today magical. How about you??? • • • • • • • • #kristytascaphotography #buffalophotographer #wnyphotographer #horse #littlebellows #thephotographerwithin #subjectlight #letthekids #lightinspired #lightslove #clickinmoms #childhoodunplugged #momtogs #dearphotographer #momazine #thebloomforum #thelifestylecollective #thefamilynarrative #dearestviewfinder #magicofchdhood #galleryoflightfeature #thesincerestoryteller #talesofthemoment #photobugcommunity #thechildrenoftheworld #pixel_kids #miniaturehorse #magic #floralcrown

There are so many things that I’d like to accomplish during this time...BUT I see the value in mentally & physically disconnecting from time to time. I RARELY do it. I know I need to do it more often. When I came across this pic, it was a reminder to me to slow down and try to enjoy more. I aspire to have the same level of chill and unbothered as this gorgeous babe. Look at her 😍. I’m working on giving myself permission to not always try to get work done when I have a spare moment (keep in mind, I’m still up working and it’s 2:59 am so I’m a work in progress 🤦🏽‍♀️😂). To enjoy movie or a show once in a while (not just when I’m editing) or better yet, maybe even take a nap. If you’re similar to me, this is your much needed reminder to relax more often. To not worry about doing ALL the time. I hope we all sneak a nap in today 💤. Work hard, Play hard...actually, scratch that, Work Hard, Relax hard. Double tap if you feel me ❤️ . . . . . . #kristytascaphotography #buffalophotographer #wnyphotographer #littlebellows #thephotographerwithin #subjectlight #letthekids #lightinspired #lightslove #clickinmoms #childhoodunplugged #momtogs #dearphotographer #candidchildhood #momazine #thebloomforum #thelifestylecollective #thefamilynarrative #dearestviewfinder #magicofchdhood #galleryoflightfeature #thesincerestoryteller #talesofthemoment #ourlightwithin #thechildrenoftheworld #pixel_kids #relax #chill #unbothered #takethetime

SENIORS & UPCOMING SENIORS I’m thinking about you. I’m sure all of the unknowns are a lot to handle and think about at times. I had a few Mom’s reach out to me over the last few days. They are either parents of kids who are set to graduate this year or who will be seniors in the fall. Some were kicking themselves for not having their child take senior pics and some who know and anticipate how busy it will be in August, September and October and wanted to lock in a date before it gets too crazy. One thing I’ve realized during this time we’ve had is how unimportant things are and how important family, loved ones and memories are. Things like pictures may seem trivial to some but we often take things and time for granted. Who would have thought we’d be in the state we’re in. Pictures freeze time, sometimes capture a family unit that may never be the same and bring timeless joy. So many things are up in the air at this time. I am however still booking sessions in late summer and fall. If you’re interested in booking before life gets super hectic again, feel free to reach out and we’ll make it happen. I’m looking forward to seeing and working with my amazing clients again. Until then, stay healthy and safe. . . . . . . . . . #kristytascaphotography #senior #buffalophotographer #wnyphotographer #seniormuse #seniormodel #theseniorbest #seniorinspire #seniorologie #seniorstyleguide #theseniorplaybook #senioryearmagazine #thetwelthyear #theseniorcollective #modernsenior #modernteenstyle #senioryearmagazine #seniormodelmagazine #thevibrantsenior #posepatch #seniorartistry #theseniorwave #theseniorstunner #seniorcityfeatures #seniorstylecollection #classof2020 #seniorguystyle #portraitpage #inspiringteensmagazine

So, this week, we’ve spent lots of quality time together. We’ve played monopoly, cards, we’ve baked, cooked, watched a movie and done a few activities. We’ve been quarantining ourselves at home but I did take PJ out driving for a few minutes today (and took a few quick pics while we were out). It’s hard to believe he’s old enough to drive! He broke his hand (back to back, twice in 2 months) so he hasn’t been able to drive since he turned 16 due to his cast. It was a nice little surprise for him today. There’s been a little bickering here and there at home with the kids but for the most part, they’ve been good and shockingly haven’t tried to beat each other up yet 🙃. I’ve still been working a ton (at home on my computer) and the kids started schoolwork again but we’re trying to make the most of this time that we don’t normally have together. What about you guys? Have you done anything fun? I’d love to hear what you guys have been up to or if you have any ideas for things that we can do together (in between schoolwork and working). . . . . . #kristytascaphotography #buffalophotographer #wnyphotographer #corona #coronavirus #quarantine #coronacation #modernteenstyle #senioryearmagazine #thetwelfthyear #dearestviewfinder #portraitpage #melanin #melaninpoppin #biracialkids #biracial #modernsenior #curlyhair #naturalhair #damhefine #munamommy #aftertheaisle #inspiringteensmagazine #portraitperfection #jjcommunity #stunningshots

Hey college freshman.: We’re sorry your first year has been so tumultuous. Hey HS seniors.: We’re so sorry that your senior year is going down like this. Hey college seniors: My heart breaks that you may not have a graduation ceremony and that this is how your last year ends. All of you. The ones that I’ve mentioned and all of the kids in between. I hate that you can’t play or finish out your sports season (especially for the seniors). All of the missed trips and missed opportunities. It sucks. My heart breaks thinking about all of those things and so many additional other things. On the contrary, my heart rejoices knowing that we have food, shelter, clothing, most of us our health and our families. That’s a blessing. Many people across the world can’t say the same. Trying to count my blessings and have an attitude of gratitude despite all that has gone down. I’m disappointed. I’m in disbelief. I’m a little scared, but I’m more thankful and grateful than any of those things. I know I’m blessed. I know there isn’t anything too hard for God. I know we’ll get through this. There’s always a reason to smile. Find it. . . . . . . #kristytascaphotography #buffalophotographer #wnyphotographer #corona #coronavirus #covid_19 #syracuse #syracuseuniversity #portraitpage #stunning_shots #portrait_perfection #dearestviewfinder #jjcommunity #photobugcommunity #curlyhair #biracial #melanin #melaninpoppin #naturalhair #curlyhairdontcare #newyorkphotographer #nycphotographer #smile #modernteenstyle

Woke up with this beautiful mama on my mind. She’s one of the funniest people I know and look how gorgeous she is! She’s now pregnant with baby number 2...a little girl, how perfect! Just thinking about her and all of the other expecting Mom’s, new Mom’s, nursing Mom’s. With everything going on in the world right now, some people need to shift their mentality. I’m not saying live in a bubble, nor do I think that I know everything, I certainly don’t, but please don’t ignorantly go out to bars and large crowds just because you want to party or you think it’s overhyped. If it’s overhyped and you’re cautious, no harm, no foul. If you’re wrong, it could have irrevocable results. Even if you’re not worried about yourself, now is the time to put others before ourselves and air on the side of caution. You could be putting wonderful people and precious cargo at risk. It’s not just the elderly or immune compromised. They’re more than enough to make changes for....but I think people tend to forget about expectant Mom’s in that category. I have 2 high risk kids in my immediate family, in my direct household. I want to protect them at all costs and also not allow any of us to be foolish enough to put others at risk. It’ll be a longgg 5 weeks with all 3 kids at home and my crazy dog, maybe more. You best believe these chumps will be on a schedule for school though😬. I’m not playing in that area. We’ll all try to work on more kindness, more love, more patience (Lord please don’t test me in that area) and understanding. One day at a time. Hopefully, one smart choice at a time. . . . . . . . . #kristytascaphotography #buffalophotographer #wnyphotographer #familyphotography #familyphotographer #littlebellows #thephotographerwithin #subjectlight #covid_19 #coronavirus #corona #clickinmoms #childhoodunplugged #momtogs #dearphotographer #candidchildhood #momazine #thebloomforum #thelifestylecollective #thefamilynarrative #dearestviewfinder #magicofchdhood #galleryoflightfeature #thesincerestoryteller #talesofthemoment #ourlightwithin #thechildrenoftheworld #pixel_kids #bnw_life #bnw

So this year I’ve been very intentional about finding joy, trying not work myself into the ground to the point where I get sick because my system is low due to not sleeping properly and taking care of myself. I rarely did things with friends (because I was always working). I still work a ton, usually 7 days a week, but I’m trying to find more of a balance (even if it’s a 15 minute window to enjoy a cup of tea). Lots of decisions had to be made this week as I’m sure many of you had to do the same. Whether to cancel trips scheduled this week, how to navigate all this craziness, trusting the Lord to get us through but also using wisdom. I’m sure couples getting married are determining whether to proceed as planned, postpone or elope. Those are decisions you guys have to make but I implore you to do what brings you joy. Like I’ve said with so many events I’ve had in the past, if everyone comes, awesome, it’s a bonus, if they don’t, that’s okay too. Your big day isn’t for them, it’s for you and your love. You can’t plan or base your lives solely on what people might say or what your friends or family might gripe about. It’s your life right?! I’ve spent enough time feeling miserable about certain things or certain people and I’m not interested in feeling unhappy more days than I feel or provide joy. I love making people happy. I love doing for others. It fills me up...at the same time, I can’t completely deplete myself in the process. I’m working hard to find and maintain that balance. So, I said ALL of that to say, try not to agonize over things, try to find joy, give joy and live this life we’ve been blessed with. I booked two weddings in the past two days and I can’t wait to be a part of THEIR special day. To be there to capture THEIR love. Be sure to enjoy who or what YOU love despite your circumstance. There will always be trials and tribulations in this life. How will you navigate those trials? I’ll be doing it one day at a time, with God but my side, finding good and joy in everyday. We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can chose to live in joy.

I look at this pic and I see love and joy. It helped ground me with all of the craziness that’s developed. Let’s remind ourselves of who and what’s important. Try not to push the panic button even though there’s definitely a lot to be concerned about. It can feel overwhelming. Choices on whether to air on the side of caution or not live your lives in a bubble and go about your normal routine (using good hand washing and smart choices of course). Lots of kids will be transitioning home from college, lots more cases will come out, more closings and the trickle down effect of it all. Let’s try to show our children how to react in the face of adversity. Praying for everyone. If you’re feeling stressed, remember 1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your worries on Him because He cares for you. 🙏❌⭕️ . . . . . . . . #kristytascaphotography #buffalophotographer #wnyphotographer #weddingphotographer #fallingblackinlove #melanin #melaninpoppin #theblackmancan #youyourwedding #theblackbridalexperience #belovedweddingstories #radlovestories #loveandwildhearts #dirtybootsandmessyhair #wanderingphotographers #authenticlovemag #couplescollective #anotherwildstory #justalittleloveinfo #authenticlovemag #shesaidyes #thatsdarling #shootandshare #thewandererscommunity #upstateweddingphotographer #wanderingweddings #munaluchibride #junebugweddings #huffpostweddings #blackfemalephotographer #elopementlove

ATTENTION CLASS OF 2021: I already have limited availability for July, August, September & October. Most schools have a deadline of either Oct 1st and a few Nov 1st. Summer is quickly approaching. I’d highly recommend scheduling ASAP to get your preferred date. I only have a handful of dates for each of the summer and fall months.

Prepare yourself to get spammed! This is the other couple that won my giveaway. When I realized that this year they’ll celebrate their 15th wedding anniversary, I decided to surprise them with a #STYLEDSHOOT instead of the casual outdoor shoot we had planned. I had about 12-24 hours to plan every detail (the dress,leather jacket, flowers including this amazing pampas grass crown, boutonnière, table, linens, chargers, cutlery, chairs, vintage Persian rug, tie, socks, earrings, candlesticks and another accessory you’ll see on upcoming posts). It was a crap ton of phone calls and about 492 messages to my client...but praise God it all came together. They have an amazing love story of faith. Their faith is what is bringing them to 15 years, 2 great kids and one special love story. It was my faith in believing that He could do exceedingly, abundantly above all that we could ask or think that brought it together. I just kept petitioning to Him to help me make this special & unique for them and it evolved into this. This couple and their amazing story deserve every bit of it. I LOVED being able to surprise them with one thing after another. Given, it was FREEZING! Like seriously so windy, 20° and so, so cold...but so worth it. BRIDES...I love this stuff. If you are getting married or even just want a styled shoot, let me help plan it. If we pulled this off in a day, give me a little time to make something beautiful happen...together ❤️. HUGE shoutout to all of the amazing vendors involved. Check them ALL out...they’re incredible at what they do! And guess what: My client made her own cake-How cool is that?! . . •Photography @kristytasca •Styling @kristytasca •Dress @bliss.bridal •Florals @maureensbuffalowholesale •Rentals @tesoroeventrentals •Vintage Rug Rental @theknotted_fox •Vintage Brass Candlesticks @sundaisyvintage . . . . . . . #kristytascaphotography #buffalophotographer #wnyphotographer #messyhairandcameraflares #muchlove_ig #wanderingweddings #photobugcommunity #belovedstories #radlovestories #loveandwildhearts #dirtybootsandmessyhair #wanderingphotographers #authenticlovemag #youyourwedding #munaluchibride #interracialcouple #elopementphotographer

This beautiful mama is just weeks away from meeting her baby boy, Jett. I’m sure she’s imaging how life with two kids will be. People are probably sharing stories of how the transition went for them. What to do and not do. For tons of people the transition from 1 to 2 kids was crazy and like triage mode. For me, it was a significantly easier transition when I had 2 kids than when I had my first. My first had colic, rarely slept & my initial supply was low. It was a whirlwind. I was actually shocked at how much easier it was the second time around. I get that every story is different. Every family is different...and that’s the beauty of life. Praying for a fast, smooth, healthy birth and transition. I’m so excited for this family! Lexie, I do have to tell you that in my experience, what “they say” was correct...there IS in fact something about boys and their mama’s☺️. Give this a like to show this awesome mama that she has our support and prayers and that she’s got this! I’d love for you to share a quick well wish for her below!

I think this has been the weirdest winter I’ve ever experienced. From it being 65° in January....in BUFFALO, to a complete snow storm, to it all melting, then rain, and wind, snow again, snow gone, freezing, moderate. What the heck?! I’m not a huge fan of snow...but I LOVE to shoot in it. It’s so beautiful and fluffy and billowy. I just need like 1 or 2 more fresh snowfalls for some shoots and then it can go away permanently for the season. Who’s with me?🙋‍♀️ . . . . . . . . #kristytascaphotography #buffalophotographer #wnyphotographer #photobugcommunity #belovedstories #radlovestories #loveandwildhearts #dirtybootsandmessyhair #wanderingphotographers #authenticlovemag #firstandlasts #theweddinglegends #anotherwildstory #justalittleloveinfo #buffaloindieweddings #beunraveled #livethelittlethings #thatsdarling #shootandshare #loveintentionally #thewandererscommunity #lookslikefilm #crazyloveandwildkisses #couple #snowshoot #couplephotography #theknot #abeautifulmess #radlovestories #muchlove_ig #soloverly

This is still one of my favorite weddings I’ve ever shot! His dress blues, her non-traditional dress, their powerful love. Gets me EVERY.SINGLE.TIME. I’m now officially booking 2021 weddings (and I still have a few spots left in 2020). Whether you’re having a small intimate wedding, eloping, having a destination wedding or doing it up big, I love capturing it all. It’s never too early to book and dates go fast. I have tons of suggestions on how the day should flow and I love helping plan, from dresses, to flowers, cakes, locations, vendors and more to help make your day best suit YOU. Not what everyone else expects or wants, YOU....it’s about your love anyway right?! That’s what your wedding should be about. Not about stressing and focusing on the schedule. That’s my job. You should just show up, enjoy your spouse and guests and just have fun. After the wedding, your going to want some gorgeous prints to hang in your home...I’ve got that handled too. Can’t wait to hear from you and make your day one to remember. One for the books! . . . . . . . . . . . #kristytascaphotography #buffalophotographer #wnyphotographer #theknot #messyhairandcameraflares #modernweddiings #photobugcommunity #belovedstories #radlovestories #loveandwildhearts #dirtybootsandmessyhair #wanderingphotographers #authenticlovemag #anotherwildstory #justalittleloveinfo #livethelittlethings #huffpostweddings #shootandshare #belovedweddingstories #thewandererscommunity #youngandwildstories #offbeatbride #lookslikefilm #weddingelopement #intimatewedding #adventureweddingphotographer #elopementphotographer #dressblues #upstatenywedding #epicelopement

Meet my new buddy OLIVER! He’s 3 weeks old...yes, you read that correctly, 3 weeks. He did amazing! We wanted to pay homage to his dad that’s in the military (Don’t worry, the flag never touched the ground). Oliver is such a gem. He didn’t fuss at all during our whole session. Can’t wait for his dad to see these. If I were them, I’d blow one of these bad boys up HUGE! 🇺🇸 . . . . . . . . #kristytascaphotography #buffalophotographer #wnyphotographer #newborn #newbornphotographer #newbornphotography #bestpicturesofnewborns #babyboy #littlebellows #thephotographerwithin #clickinmoms #childhoodunplugged #momtogs #dearphotographer #momazine #thebloomforum #thelifestylecollective #thefamilynarrative #dearestviewfinder #magicofchdhood #galleryoflightfeature #thesincerestoryteller #talesofthemoment #thechildrenoftheworld #pixel_kids #mom_hub #jjcommunity #military #army #armybaby

Headshots don’t just have to be taken in front of a solid color backdrop. They can be taken at cool locations that reflect more of your personality. They can be indoors or outdoors. There’s a ton of variety available. My friends Denine and Edwin did awesome and are always soooo much fun to work with. I literally laughed the whole time. . . . . . . . . #kristytascaphotography #buffalophotographer #wnyphotographer #headshot #headshots #nycphotographer #branding #brand #stunning_shots #portraitphotography #portrait_perfection #clickinmoms #photobugcommunity #blackexcellence #melaninpoppin #melanin #munamommy #thesincerestoryteller #dearestviewfinder

How cute are these two?!! I could seriously post 100 pics from their session. They rocked it despite it being a complete soggy mudpit. Every step we took was messy and borderline a pond...but we had a ball! I love that they were down for the adventure. Be prepared for a bunch more pics to come... . . . . . . . . . . #kristytascaphotography #buffalophotographer #wnyphotographer #wedphotoinspiration #photobugcommunity #belovedstories #radlovestories #loveandwildhearts #dirtybootsandmessyhair #wanderingphotographers #authenticlovemag #firstandlasts #theweddinglegends #anotherwildstory #justalittleloveinfo #thewedlocks #beunraveled #livethelittlethings #thatsdarling #shootandshare #abeautifulmess #loveintentionally #thewandererscommunity #youngandwildstories #offbeatbride #crazyloveandwildkisses #buffaloindieweddings #belovedstories #muchlove_ig
