Lilac Festival and Spring Giveaway

Lilac Festival and Spring Giveaway

Happy Spring

Spring is upon us in Rochester, NY (even if the weather may not always agree). It has been a pretty decent winter compared to most, but I’m looking forward to warmer days, outdoor portraits, and one of my favorite events of the year; the Lilac Festival in Highland Park. 

It has become a yearly tradition for my Mom and I to celebrate Mother’s Day at the Lilac Festival. We take our time looking through the artist and vendor booths and we always stop to take some portraits of the kids in front of the rows of tulips. My kids especially enjoy the frozen bananas on a stick (Just don’t forget the wet wipes if you’re going to try this delicious treat!) and stopping to play at the playground. 

There is a reason that Highland Park has long been a favorite portrait location for local photographers for generations. It is picture perfect this time of year. Even my mother and father had their wedding photos taken there more than 30 years ago. Maybe it’s just wishful thinking but I can almost smell those lilacs now!

What are some ways that you celebrate Mother’s Day? Will this year be your first?

Lilac Festival Spring Giveaway

In honor of Spring, Mother’s Day, and the Lilac Festival, I’d like to give one Mama a complimentary Lilac Themed Newborn Session at my studio in East Rochester (a $150 gift). This Lilac Festival Spring Giveaway is open to women due with a girl in the last week of April.  Send me your name, due date, and your favorite way to celebrate Spring. I will randomly select a participant from those that contact me.

(P.S. It helps if you like the color purple!)


The winner will receive a full 2-3 hour studio session in exchange for allowing me to use the images for marketing. Prints and products can be purchased at an ordering appointment 2 weeks after the session, but no purchase is required. Photo shoot must take place when the infant is less than 14 days old.
