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 the spring of 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?"  At the time, it was better just to keep things separate.

In 2011, Christine and her business partner of 22 years decided to close their Penfield studio and shortly thereafter, Christine joined the Keepsake team!  Together, Christine and I are honored and blessed to have helped literally thousands of local families over our 30 year careers preserve their precious family memories through our eyes, heart, and lense.

We invite you to experience Keepsake Photography.  We promise to give you our very best efforts, to treat you with respect and provide you with portraits you will be thrilled to own all in a fun, unpretentious environment.   Promise.


There is no substitute for experience.  Your photographers, Bob & Christine are the owners of the company and each has 30 years of professional portrait photography experience.

Exceptional quality

We are a full-service, print-based photography studio.  You'll find cheaper but you won't find better quality.  Traditional photographic paper, canvas and metal portraits made to last generations.


Keepsake offers the most variety of modern senior portrait image styles, in studio and outdoors, all at the same appointment so your pictures won't look like everyone else's, even if they came to Keepsake themselves!

Love it or your money back

We stand by our work 100%.  If you don't love the images from your Keepsake photoshoot, we'll take more images to your liking or refund your money, whichever you choose.
