  • 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[...]
  • 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[...]
  • 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[...]
  • Family + Newborn | Lauren, Devonair, Aliyah and Baby Desmond

  • Lauren works with me at JPL, so I've watched her grow on this wonderful journey. Baby Desi finally arrived :) We met up at Fort Hunter, on front street in Harrisburg, for a family session with her adorable little ones. The weather was perfect, all except for some pesky gnats. I guess that's what you get when shootin[...]
  • Family | Ryan, Brittany & Claire

  • Claire just turned 1. Her mom spent weeks and weeks creating handcrafted decor for her birthday party, and unfortunately I couldn't attend, due to… wait for it… a birth class. A birth class which my husband and I both wish we wouldn't have paid for and had skipped. But that's a whole different story. It was insanely[...]
  • Mommy & Me | Rita & Gavin

  • This was my first "Mommy & Me" session, and I can't wait to do more! A whole session dedicated to capturing the love between a little boy & his mommy. Angie, Rita's sister gifted this photo session which is such a wonderful idea. Gavin was so happy & gave us plenty of smiles throughout. There was one poi[...]
