Hannah is 6, On the Beaver River

As a girl from Beaver County, I love rivers...and so you can imagine how excited I was to meet Hannah and her mom, Amanda, for a session on the Beaver River at dusk. I've been photographing Hannah since she was a baby and each year her mom comes up with a fun theme to try … Continue reading Hannah is 6, On the Beaver River

Cora, Almost 2 – Beaver Train Station

Every 3 months, I get to see this amazing family because since they were pregnant with their first, they made the decision to capture the growth of their girls every 3 months of their life for the first 2 years.

Kinley – Newborn Portraits

Sweet little Kinley was 9 days old at our session and so stinkin' adorable, making me want another baby. The struggle is real!¬†We started the session with a set-up inspired by a post I saw on Instagram - a baby in a wreath of beautiful fall flowers. Since Kinley is a winter baby, I went … Continue reading Kinley – Newborn Portraits

Carmine is 1

Little Carmine has such a big personality -- and he hammed up it for me during his 1st birthday portrait session! Carmine is the nephew of a soon-to-be Elders Ridge Photography bride, Bethany. I was flattered when a friend of her family loved Bethany and Nate's engagement pictures so much that they hired me to … Continue reading Carmine is 1

Brady’s Run Park and Beaver River Sunset Family Portrait Session

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 - … Continue reading Brady’s Run Park and Beaver River Sunset Family Portrait Session

Smeltz Family Portraits, IUP Co-op Recreational Park

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 … Continue reading Smeltz Family Portraits, IUP Co-op Recreational Park

Whimsical Woods Family Portraits, White’s Woods Nature Center

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. White's Woods Nature Center … Continue reading Whimsical Woods Family Portraits, White’s Woods Nature Center

Owen is 1 — First Birthday Portraits — Indiana County Photographer

Everyone wish this sweet little peanut a happy first year of life! Just look at those big baby blues - what a handsome guy! We took Own's 1st year portraits at his great-aunt's house in Avonmore, PA. The gazebo was the perfect cover for the light rain showers that were lingering. Owen was such a … Continue reading Owen is 1 — First Birthday Portraits — Indiana County Photographer
