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 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.
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.

Family photography sessions may last up to two hours and include up to 5 people. 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. You can also change outfits if you want between the two locations.
The Buffalo family sessions sitting fee includes the time, talent, and film costs, but please note JPGS are not included. After the session, images are processed and uploaded to an online gallery where you can purchase prints, an album, or high-resolution images with a print release from the gallery.
