Buffalo + New York + Naples, FL + Nantucket + Nationwide


As a family photographer, I love capturing the little moments that make life so wonderful. Yes, it’s true; I travel all over the nation for the majority of weddings I photograph. But, when we’re not on the road, you can find me in Buffalo, NY photographing families all around this beautiful city. Don’t live in Buffalo? I offer a standard travel fee for family sessions outside of our radius and waive travel fees if I’m already headed your way!

Family Photography Sessions

in Buffalo, New York with Brian Shaw

For over 10 years I’ve been photographing weddings & families all over the nation. It wasn’t until the birth of our daughter that I started exploring photographing with film. Fast forward to today and I photograph all family sessions on film. These sessions are an extension of my love of film and allow me to tell your story in a authentic and timeless way.

With film, there is a slowed down approach that includes both candid and posed images. I encourage natural interaction between you and your family to document connection.

My focus is always on capturing your family as natural and wonderful as you are.
