Hannah is 5 — Beaver County, PA Family Portraits

Hannah’s mom, Amanda, always does her homework before our sessions. She sends me inspiration pictures and we go back and forth with ideas and locations, working together to have an amazing session. And when you see the images below, I think you’ll agree it was time well spent! Continue reading “Hannah is 5 — Beaver County, PA Family Portraits”

Brady’s Run Park and Beaver River Sunset Family Portrait Session — Beaver County PA Photographer

It’s been over 3 years that I’ve been photographing this family and you’d think after awhile all our sessions would start to feel the same. Not true at all! Sure, we return to some of the same locations so we can see how the girls grow (this session was just for Cordelia’s 15 months – Rita got to spend the evening with Mamu and PopPop), but we always come away with something different. And I love it! The plan is always loose and we see what the 2 hour session will bring.

Brittney + Rocco — Camp Kon O Kwee Wedding — Beaver County PA Photographer

Rain was a big part of Brittney and Rocco’s wedding day, and not just a little shower here and there, we had downpour.all.day.long. Luckily, the ceremony and the reception were always going to be indoors, so we just had to get creative for the portraits.

Smeltz Family Portraits — IUP Co-op Recreational Park — Indiana, PA Photographer

It has been a pleasure working with this family! Back when I was first starting out, Emily asked me to take Ian’s 2 year portraits and they became one of the first real portrait sessions I ever did. And since then, I’ve been able to capture this family’s growth each year! This year, Ian is 7 and Ellie is 2. We went out to the IUP Co-op Park for the session to make use of its beautiful surroundings. Continue reading “Smeltz Family Portraits — IUP Co-op Recreational Park — Indiana, PA Photographer”

Whimsical Woods Family Portraits — White’s Woods Nature Center — Indiana, PA Photographer

How about this gorgeous weather? The light at the end of the day has been just amazing and when Amanda asked to me take her family’s portraits, I immediately knew we’d be hiking through the woods to capture this beautiful family in some dreamy sweet light streaming through the tall trees.

50 degrees in January? I’ll take it! What a perfect day we had for Bethany and Nate’s engagement session in downtown Pittsburgh. We started on the North Shore, capturing the beautiful golden bridges, the shimmering city reflections on the river, and the Pittsburgh skyline.

Courtney + Bo — Wedding Film — Indiana County Videographer

What a fun birthday gift for me this year: filming Courtney and Bo’s wedding! And that’s not sarcasm! They were married on December 19 and the day was pretty darn cold…especially in northern Indiana County! But, the smiles of these two will warm your heart, so no one even noticed the weather! A beautiful ceremony and a super-fun reception at the Contres-Greer Social Hall in Northern Cambria. Best wishes, Courtney and Bo!
