Elizabeth + Chris, Pittsburgh Engagement Session

Elizabeth and Chris brought some heat to the Hot Metal Bridge at the start of their engagement session on a cold day in March. We chose Pittsburgh as the location because just a few months earlier, Chris popped the question during a special date night in the city. And that's just the start of the … Continue reading Elizabeth + Chris, Pittsburgh Engagement Session

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. I so look forward to seeing how the girls change...and you'd think there wouldn't be … Continue reading Cora, Almost 2 – Beaver Train Station

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

Catie, Class of 2017

The first thing Catie said to me when we met for her senior portrait session on a beautiful fall November day was "I hate fall and don't want any leaves or fall-y things in my pictures." As I looked around at the very rustic, very "fall-y" location we agreed to meet, I felt sad to … Continue reading Catie, Class of 2017

It’s a Wonderful Life Themed Christmas Card

Every year, the Jones family does a Christmas card that totally blows all other Christmas cards out of the water. They pick a holiday movie or song, we come up with a concept, get the costumes, do the hair and make-up, and create something one-of-a-kind. And often times hilarious. This year, they chose the movie … Continue reading It’s a Wonderful Life Themed Christmas Card

Bethany + Nate, Springwood Conference Center

Bethany and Nate's October wedding at the Springwood Conference Center in Verona felt more like a summer wedding than a fall wedding. Our dependable Western PA weather (i.e. rain) just couldn't stay away, but once again, I say "thank you" because as soon as the rain cleared, an absolutely beautiful glow covered the stately grounds … Continue reading Bethany + Nate, Springwood Conference Center

Bree + Wade, Lake Raystown Resort Wedding

Bree and Wade know how to host a party! They were married at Lake Raystown Resort and had an entire weekend of parties and fun planned for their guests. I know I had a great time!

Tyler + Emily, Seven Oaks Country Club

Tyler and Emily were married in July on the hottest day of the year so far. Seriously -- it was over 100 degrees and 100% humidity on their wedding day. Not typical for western PA weather!! Very uncomfortable...and I wasn't even the one wearing a suit or heavy gown! They were married in Emily's church, … Continue reading Tyler + Emily, Seven Oaks Country Club

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
