As a local family photographer, I love capturing the little moments that make life wonderful. My family and I call Buffalo home for part of the year and I am honored to document many incredible families here and in the surrounding areas. I’d love to photograph your ever-changing family in your home or on location in the Buffalo region. My natural approach to family photography helps you preserve this moment in time, just as it is.
I live in Naples, Florida most of the year but make it back to Buffalo, NY every summer where I love photographing families on film. I will be home from mid-June 2023 until early August 2023 this year.
Don’t live in Buffalo or Naples? I offer a standard travel fee for family sessions across the country and waive travel fees if we’re already headed your way or passing through
Your Family on Film with Brian Shaw
It wasn’t until the birth of our daughter that I started exploring film photography. I now photograph all Buffalo family photography sessions on the film medium. These sessions are an extension of my love of film and allow me to tell your story in an authentic and timeless way.
With film photography, there is a slowed-down approach that includes both candid and posed images. I encourage playful and comfortable interactions between your family while documenting your natural connections. My focus is always on capturing your family as natural and wonderful as you are.

My family photography sessions document your family as they naturally are in the comfort of your home and/or another favorite location in the Buffalo area. I love starting at your home to warm things up and then finishing the session on location somewhere nearby during golden hour. This allows me to capture multiple scenes and a variety of images. After the session, the film is processed, scanned to JPGS, and uploaded to an online gallery where you can download high-resolution images for yourself to print up to 11×14 in size.
2023 Buffalo Extended Family Details

Extended family sessions take place at one location where all of the families gather together. Usually, the backyard of a family home or a nearby park is a great setting. These sessions are a bit more traditional in nature with posed photo combinations that you will request. I love to mix in some candid imagery as well and single portraits of family members as needed. After the session, the film is processed, scanned to JPG, and uploaded to an online gallery where you can download high-resolution images for yourself to print up to 11×14 in size.
Want to add more people to your family session, or have an event you need to document with more people? I love photographing bigger families, reunions, and events!
