I met this beautiful woman TEN years ago my junior year of high school. She was my "model" for what I believe was my first photo session with my first camera!

Today she saw me looking for somebody to come play in the snow with me, so she brought her CAT (no, I'm not kidding- there are photos coming!), put on this dress & braved the icy temps to take these photos and I am so in love with the results!

It's not too often that I do newborn sessions - l think I've kind of honed in on families & couples as my "niche". But every once in a while I get to step into a family's home as they welcome their little one and capture the sweet, fleeting moments.
Congrats to the Wakefield family as they welcome their newest addition and especially to Alice who just adores her little brother!

I've known the Rikers for years - they were our neighbors for like, 8 years or something crazy like that. They were such great neighbors- the kind you can run over & ask for a cup of sugar or eggs if you’d run out.

I loved seeing them and seeing how big the kids are!

Jasmin & Kevin - a day full of sweetness, love, faith and family.
I photographed Jasmins brother's wedding a few years ago and had the absolute joy of seeing them again for his sister's wedding.
What a beautiful day to mark the love these two wonderful people share!

PAY WHAT YOU CAN mini sessions!

Sessions will be held September 28 in the morning in Reinholds, Saturday evening Sunday the 29 evening at East Lampeter Park and will include 5 digital images.

We should all celebrate our birthdays with candy and balloons 🍭

Spending time with these two sweethearts was SO much fun! Their birthdays are soon so Mom brought balloons, marshmallow pops, and the sweetest outfits 😍

Happy we finally managed to make this session happen - after a broken elbow, extreme weather conditions, I was super excited when the weather held out and we could all make it!

These two cuties are starting school this year (can't WAIT to do my little guy's photos next year for his first day of Kindergarten!).

Any other parents feeling nostalgic as the "big day" is approaching? It's so bittersweet to see them grow. As I've heard before, "the days are long, but the years are short".

I still have a few available spots left for these mini sessions! I haven't been super active here this year so far with the arrival of my youngest, but I am definitely still booking sessions so if you're interested, reach out!

Comes with a sweet little chalkboard with their information that you get to take home!

When I photographed Andi & Dan's wedding almost 2 years ago, we didn't have time to get a wide variety of portraits of them - by the time their ceremony was over the sun had set and it was totally dark. When she reached out to schedule an extended family session as a gift for her MIL, I immediately decided they needed to stay a little while after so we could grab these pictures of them and I'm so glad we did!
Dan was gone for quite a bit (deployed) and I know they've been absolutely overjoyed to be back together. They're such a fun, silly, happy couple - we had a blast!

And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

My favorite part of the day is when I get to take the bride & groom aside and let them have some time for just the two of them! We had some time right after the ceremony and then we snuck out during dinner time after they'd eaten to grab those gorgeous sunset pictures!

Jessica & Richard tied the knot at the beautiful Cameron Estate Inn on a beautiful Thursday afternoon and it could NOT have been a more beautiful day. This day was such a DREAM for start to finish, and these two are some of the sweetest, most down to earth, laid back couples I've worked with! We snuck them out during sunset for more portraits - which I loved so much I'm actually saving them for a second post because I couldn't fit them all here πŸ˜‚
You guys, I am SO glad you picked me to come hang out with you guys and capture your wedding day!

The Copenhaver wedding at Bear Mill Estate was just gorgeous!
Vita & Jeremy share such a sweet, deep love for each other that was evident in all the details of the day - they even both gave each other anchor themed gifts because of their love of boating together. (And neither of them knew about the other's gift!)
I loved the Italian song she danced to with her daddy, and how everyone who knew it was singing with them, it was such a sweet moment.
Thanks you guys for including me in your special day!
