Hello! Yes, I am still around and this post is long overdue! Time really does fly by because I first met Taylor when she attended Pre-K, many years ago! She had grown in to an amazing young lady with so much to offer! Every year I capture a session to try new locations, ideas, and just to get back in to the swing of things and Taylor was my go to girl this year! Taylor, I had such a fun day with you! Thanks so much for the privilege of capturing your images. I wish you all the best in school and the exciting things your future holds for you! Always be true to who you are and never settle for less than you desire and you will go far!
Hmmm…it seems like it was around this time last year that I was setting the goal of trying to keep up with my blogging. Well, life happened. And here it is almost a year later and I have a lot to catch up on. So I am going to start again with Vinnie!
I had so much fun during his session because of Vinnie’s great personality. I also got my workout in for the day! I first met Vinnie many years ago when he was in Pre-K, and I loved seeing the amazing young man he has become! Thank you, Vinnie, for the honor of photographing your senior images. I wish you much success in your bright future!
It was such a pleasure to spend time with Casie for her Luxury Photography session! She drove here from the Allentown area and brought Shirley along to share the day with her. Shirley bought this amazing dress just for this session. Casie totally rocked the look and created some glamorous images!
Casie, thank you so much for an incredible day! Renee and I truly enjoyed our time with you and Shirley! It means a lot that you took a day to come up to experience our Ultimate Girls Day Out!
I am excited to introduce you to Jenna! One of the challenges of Jenna’s session was that the maternity clothes I had ordered had not yet arrived. So we got creative with what we had on hand and captured some beautiful images for her. I’m late getting this post up, so I’m sure by now that Jenna has had her beautiful son. It was a pleasure to meet Jenna and share many laughs during her session! Jenna, I wish you and your husband all the best as you begin life as a new family!
The last post I blogged was of Rachael, the beautiful mama-to-be. This is her son, Brandon! This little guy arrived 6 days after his mama’s maternity session. I really enjoyed my time with Brandon because he was so snuggly. And since he was only 9 days old when I met him, he went into a nice deep sleep so we could take some images of these early days to be treasured.
Scott and Rachel, you are going to be great parents! You are already so comfortable with your blessing. Treasure the special moments in life and always look to God for his parenting wisdom.
I would love for you to meet Rachael! I had so much fun capturing her images, and by the end of this beautiful mama-to-be’s session I felt as if we had been friends for a long time! Maternity is a genre I was not sure about venturing into. But after having Rachael do a modeling session for me, I knew I would love maternity if I could put an elegant touch to it! Rachael’s husband, Scott, came with her and I was so happy he was willing to join her in some images. We captured Rachael’s images on a Saturday, about 3 weeks before her due date I believe, but she delivered her beautiful baby boy the following Friday! I am so happy that little guy waited until after his mama’s session to make his arrival!
Rachael, it was a pleasure meeting you and spending a bit of time getting to know you! Thanks for your willingness to do a modeling session with me and allowing me to me to discover I do enjoy capturing maternity images!
Stella was celebrating her 80th birthday with her family. Since all the girls in the family were together they decided to celebrate with an Ultimate Girls Day Out! Stella started her session by having her hair styled and makeup applied, and then we captured incredible keepsake images for her daughters to cherish. Stella’s reaction to being pampered was so priceless! I loved watching her!! Justine arrived a little later than everyone else because she was at work. Her reaction to seeing her grandma with her hair styled and makeup applied, brought tears to my eyes. It was so precious that I can’t even describe the feeling. This is what it is all about for me: giving ladies a day of feeling beautiful and special.
Cindy was visiting from Colorado, which made this day of capturing an amazing multi-generation image possible. I have had the pleasure of spending time with Linda and Justine, but this was my first time meeting Cindy and Stella. Any words that I would use to describe this group of ladies would not be accurate. They are so amazing, fun, and beautiful — both inside and out! The love they share is untouchable, genuine, and so evident in the way they interact!
Stella, Linda, Cindy, and Justine thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of this awesome celebration. I had so much fun, and it was a pleasure to spend the morning with you!
This post is long overdue, but I would love for you to meet Olivia! We met after the main rush of my senior season which allowed us to have a fun relaxed day of shooting! Olivia is so full of fun and laughter that you can’t help but have fun with her. The unique thing about Olivia is that she always wears some kind of decoration in her hair and she looks beautiful!
Olivia, I had such a great time capturing your images and spending a bit of time getting to know you! I wish you all the best in what the future holds for you. Always keep your beautiful smile and fun personality! Thanks so much for a special day and creating memories with me!
In my last blog post, I mentioned that my New Year’s resolution was to keep up with my blog. As you can see, that hasn’t happened. So much for resolutions! I’ll keep working on it, but in the meantime I would like to introduce you to Tyler. Tyler’s session was full of adventure — riding on his 4-wheeler to places in the woods I could never get to on my own! When we reached our final destination, I could definitely understand why this is one of Tyler’s favorite places to hang out. And he has so many different interests that his session allowed for amazing variety in capturing his personality. The last part of his session was taken at Buttermilk Falls. I’m sure he had no idea he would walk away from the falls soaking wet, but with his adventurous spirit, he was willing to try everything I asked.
Tyler, thank you so much for giving me the honor of capturing your senior images! I think you are an amazing young man (and you know my boys think you are the coolest!). I wish you only the best in the future and in all life has to offer. Your amazing personality will allow you to do great things in life!
First let me start this post by wishing everyone a Happy New Year! One of my New Year’s resolutions is to keep up with my blog. And in order to keep up, I need to get caught up with last year’s sessions. So I’m going to do that by introducing you to Claire.
Claire wanted two different looks for her portraits, so we divided her session into 2 parts. I can’t really describe how much fun I had during Claire’s session. Her personality, her eagerness to have her portraits captured, and her vision for the look she wanted created a fun session. She even gives you the impression that the waterfalls weren’t freezing cold!
From the small amount of time I spent with Claire I can tell that she has what it takes to pursue her dreams. Claire, it was such a pleasure to get to know you. I wish you all the best in what your future holds. Never give up on your dreams, and reach for the stars!
