Jack – 2 Year Old Photos

•July 4, 2014 • Leave a Comment



I first met up with Jack’s family when he was one…and then again last fall…and yet again this week to capture his 2 year old face for pictures.  And what a face it is.  Aside from being handsome and adorable, he was full of curiosity and determination that only a 2 year old can possess.  We met a local monastery with a pond and ducks, the idea being that feeding the ducks would be something fun AND photogenic for Jack to do while I snapped away.  The ducks were, shall we say, a bit more aggressive than we anticipated but eventually they backed off.  Jack kept busy and the look on his face when I pulled out the tricycle at the end of the shoot was priceless.  Here are my favorites:

Sean – Graduation Pictures

•July 4, 2014 • Leave a Comment


Weather and traffic jams were just two of the roadblocks of getting together with my cousin-in-law Sean in order to do some pictures to signify his graduation from college. Nonetheless, the stars aligned on an overcast evening which ended up being perfect light, and Sean was much better behaved than the toddlers and kids I usually shoot :) Meaning: the shoot was fast and perfect. Congratulations, Sean!


Hadley – Newborn Shots

•May 26, 2014 • Leave a Comment


I know I can be fickle about my “favorite” type of subject to shoot, but newborns always rank pretty high on the list.  There’s just something about capturing brand new life, especially when its just days old.  Sweet little Hadley might have earned the title of Most Awake Newborn Ever, and like a true Taurus she stubbornly refused to succumb to sleep for quite some time.  But when she did we managed to get some angelic shots, as well as a handful of classic moments with her beautiful big sister, Piper.  Mom and Dad – hope you enjoy these shots of your new girl :)

Cole & Family

I am happy to be back in the groove with my photography!  I made a personal goal for myself this past winter to focus on improving and learning and trying new things…and since winter lasted forever my first shoot of the spring was just this past weekend.  And it could not have been a cuter, sweeter, or more photogenic family!  I have photographed young Brayden and his parents quite a few times, and now he has a new little brother, baby Cole.  The beauty of repeat clients is really getting to know the family and know what they want and how to deliver it, needless to say we blew through the family shots and spent most of the time concentrating on baby Cole.  The newborn stage is so fleeting, and I’m honored to have captured a little piece of it for this family.  Enjoy!







Chance & Family

When I met Chance and his family last weekend, we were embarking a gorgeous sunny fall day.  Chance’s mom wanted some photos for a Christmas card to capture their family’s first holiday in Pennsylvania–and nothing really speaks “northeast” quite like fall foliage.  Chance proved to be a star–he reminded me of a kid who should be in commercials in the 1960’s.  Absolutely adorable even if he did forget his socks;)  We did a little hiking through a mutual friend’s wooded property to find a few bridges and a bit of shade.  Below are my picks…

Gabe & Family

I had the pleasure of photography this great little family (and their dog, Moto) last weekend at my family’s farm in Freeburg.  We had a pretty day…and a baby who didn’t want to smile very much.  And a dog that, for all his beauty, did NOT want to sit with his family.  And a motorcycle that Mom wasn’t too keen on having in the photos.  And yet, somehow, it all came together great.  After the outdoor shots, my assistant Jess and I let poor little Gabe go home for a nap and met up at his house a little while later.  There, the rumors of Gabe being the smiliest, happiest baby ever were confirmed.  Thank you Tony, Nicki, and Gabe for letting me photograph your wonderful little family.

Jack & Family

I did photos of Jack a few months ago for his first birthday, and he was one of the most pleasant subjects I’ve ever worked with!  That opinion still stands after this past weekend’s shoot with Jack and his parents.  We shot at the Penn State Hazleton campus, and although Jack is no longer content to sit still he is still full of bright smiles and wonder that only a 15 month old can have.  (As long as I didn’t pull out my stuffed dinosaur, right Mom and Dad?)  Below are my picks and I certainly hope to keep seeing Jack as he grows up (way too fast, of course…)
