  • Dress Meets Mechanic | "Wear the Dress" Sesh

  • So Ashley had contacted me several months ago to collaborate on a fun photoshoot involving a car, her wedding dress & a garage where her husband is a car mechanic. I was super stoked, because this is a unique project, far from my family/newborn/lifestyle shoots. She really paid attention to detail and brought fun a[...]
  • Newborn | Meet Gavin (Weaver Family)

  • Not too long ago, I photographed Ally and her bump. And now... Meet Gavin! He's on the outside. We met up at Cherry Hill Orchards in Lancaster almost 2 weeks ago. He was just 7 days & baby-fresh. It was quite a scorcher of a day... definitely didn't feel fall-like. We may have been sweating like crazy, but we pushe[...]
  • Maternity | James, Ally & Addison

  • I've had the pleasure of photographing this family for the last couple summers. I went to high school with Ally, and it's so fun to watch our lives change & grow. We ventured out to Montour Preserve in Washingtonville to capture her family of 3, before they soon welcome Baby #2 into the world. Addison has grown int[...]
  • Kiddo Lifestyle | Mikayla at 9 months

  • Sleeping: You would think by 9 months that a baby would like to sleep all night. Not the case with this girl. She must miss me too much and prefers to see me at least once during the nighttime hours. She has given me just a few all-nighters since 7 months... but they are the rare & few. She prefers to sleep on her [...]
  • Kiddo Lifestyle | Mikayla at 7 months

  • { 7 months already! Where has the time gone? } Sleeping: Mikayla is now sleeping through the night (or waking once for a nursing occasionally). I think ever since she figured out that she could sleep on her belly... she's been sleeping so much better. At first I was totally nervous to watch her flip onto her belly w[...]
  • 1st Birthday | Elanor

  • This little lady turned 1 & celebrated with family who came from near & far. She opened presents, played with the wrapping paper, got messy with her cupcake, giggled & had lots of smiles. Her Mommy & Daddy did a fabulous job decorating & prepping the food. Happy Birthday Elanor! So glad I could be t[...]
  • Tails + Paws | Diesel Turns 2!

  • Another year older... another reason to be the crazy dog lady who bakes her pup a special birthday cake. His favorite treats are ice cubes, carrots & peanut butter. Unfortunately, we were out of carrots since I just pureed a bunch for his sister. So this year,  I subbed out the carrots for apples & bananas. I a[...]
  • Mikayla's First Easter

  • Bunny ears, bunny tails, lamb ears... the things you do to babies for the seasons & holidays. I'm big on the themes, what can I say. I think that the next time I do another shoot of little Miss M, I'll wait until my husband or my Mom is around to help assist. I had sweat dripping off of me by the end of this fia[...]
  • Kiddo Lifestyle | Mikayla at 4 months

  • So... my camera was unfortunately broken (needed a new circuitboard) since the beginning of the new year. Canon finally returned it to me fixed... therefore, beware the upcoming baby spam. I was going crazy not being able to capture high quality photos of my daughter the last 2 months. Thank goodness I had it for wh[...]
  • Maternity | Kevin & Emily

  • I was super excited to shoot in an urban environment, since I haven't had the opportunity to do so in a while. This couple will soon be meeting their little girl in a few weeks! The name is to be a surprise :) It was a blustery, cold, winter Saturday unfortunately. I had them strip down from their coats at each new loc[...]
  • Family + Newborn | Olsen Family

  • Our family welcomed yet another wee one in 2014. Meet Dominic Matthew Olsen. :) He sure is handsome, and such an angel. He sleeps so well for his mommy & daddy, and seems to be very easy-going. I'm finding that I truly enjoy lifestyle sessions & want to focus primarily on these moving forward. I asked Laurie if[...]
  • Family + Newborn | Sauder Family

  • I can't believe my niece is already 4 weeks old! Where does the time go. Life has been so very crazy busy lately, that I haven't been able to spend much time with her at all unfortunately. I did however have the opportunity to spend some time with my sister-in-law, her husband Colton & their new addition last we[...]
