I love repeat clients!! Its always fun to come up with something new and different while at the same time knowing the subjects better and what they truly want out of a session. For the Eyerly family, we took a little road trip to Jim Thorpe for a more “urban” metro feel. It was probably one of the nicest October days we had, pushing 70 degrees and sunny, but still at the height of fall color. We had a great day and I really look forward to photographing this attractive bunch again sometime soon!
I’ve been photographing these beauties (and their mom) since Eloise’s arrival into the world two years ago. They are pretty, funny, and full of personality. We haven’t had a dull shoot yet, and this year was no exception with a freezing cold day and a certain two-year old who apparently got into blue permanent marker just before the shoot :) No matter, these girls did great and their mom did okay too :)
Although I am primarily a portrait/lifestyle photographer, occasionally I have an opportunity to branch out and broaden my horizons. Such was the case a few weeks ago, when a community event in Wilkes-Barre was in need of a last minute photographer. The Catholic Youth Center in Wilkes Barre and Wells Fargo joined to clean up a park, paint a mural and assemble a new playground. It was a fun event with lots of people coming together to make something great happen!
I’m primarily a human photographer, but every now and then its fun to step outside of your comfort zone. Treasure Keeper Labradors is the breeder I acquired our canine family member from a few years ago, and since then we have discussed doing a photo shoot of puppies. We finally made it happen this summer, and I have to say that it was pretty much 4 of the most enjoyable hours I’ve ever spent. The pups were precious and beautiful…these photos are just a few of their many wonderful poses!
About 14 years ago, I walked into a veterinary office and applied for a job. I was interviewed by a smiling, friendly woman named Ellan, who I came to be friends with over my years of being her co-worker. She had the same sense of sarcastic humor, we shared a Zodiac sign, and she had a cute little toddler named Jared. Over the years our paths went different ways, but we ended up both settling into the Pocono area, and a month or so ago she contacted me about taking senior portraits of Jared. Once I managed to wrap my head around the fact that he is now a high school senior (because that doesn’t make me feel old) we picked a date and a place and had a great shoot. We did the majority of Jared’s photos at the Boulder Field in Hickory Run State Park – it was an awesome and unique location! Below are two of my favorites!
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:
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!
