About us

Here's the Keepsake story.

I founded Keepsake Photography in 1988.  I was working as a software engineer for General Motors and doing wedding photography part-time.  Business went well and I opened my first retail professional photography studio in Canandaigua in 1992.

Christine and I met at a photography conference in New York City in 1994.  She has a degree in photography from Lansing college in Michigan and was co-owner of Expressions in Photography in Penfield, NY.  We maintained separate studio's for many years.  It was funny when some clients would say, "Hey, doesn't your wife have a competing photo studio across town?"

In 2011, Christine and her business partner of 22 years decided to close their studio and shortly after, Christine joined the Keepsake team!


There is no substitute for experience.  Your photographer is the one of the owners of the company and has nearly 30 years of professional photography experience.

Exceptional quality

You'll find cheaper but you won't find better quality.  In house designed and edited traditional photographic paper and canvas portraits made to last a lifetime and then some.


Keepsake offers the most variety of modern senior portrait image styles so your pictures won't look like everyone else's, even if they came to Keepsake themselves!

Love it or your money back

If you don't love the images from your Keepsake photo shoot, we'll take more images to your liking or refund your money, whichever you choose.
