Libby — 2 year portraits — IUP Coop Park — Indiana PA Photographer

As a mother of a 2 year old year, I can certainly relate to the roller coaster session I had with Miss Libby. Such a sweetie - just look at that sweet smile and you can almost hear the giggles!

Hannah is 3 – Brady’s Run Park – Children Portraits – Beaver County, PA Photographer

I cannot believe Hannah is 3 already! Yikes! Time flies! I first met Hannah when she was at her mom's cousin's wedding that I was shooting.

Amanda + G and the kids — Family Portraits — IUP campus –Indiana, PA

Was it just me or was this summer pretty spectacular? Sure, there were humid days and sure, there were rainy days, but overall, I'd have to call this one of the best summers we've had in a while. But maybe I'm not the best judge because I was either super-pregnant or over-weight from just being … Continue reading Amanda + G and the kids — Family Portraits — IUP campus –Indiana, PA
