Min, Andrew, + Rita – Family Portraits – Brush Creek Park – New Brighton, PA

Our original session was canceled due to rain, and maybe I should have canceled this one due to crazy humidity (just kidding - that's no excuse!), but you really can't tell that we were all sweating our butts off! And Rita is so stinkin' cute, I quickly forgot about the sticky weather. The combo of … Continue reading Min, Andrew, + Rita – Family Portraits – Brush Creek Park – New Brighton, PA

A.J., Emily, Ian, + Ellie – Family Portraits – Indiana, PA

It's been so awesome¬†working with Emily, A.J., Ian, and now Elliana over the years. Emily schedules the family pics right around Ian's birthday because this super-mom does an annual birthday video for Ian featuring pics of him throughout the year. New this year is their latest addition, Elliana. This sweet girl was wide awake for … Continue reading A.J., Emily, Ian, + Ellie – Family Portraits – Indiana, PA

Rita is 1 – First Birthday Session – Family Portraits – Beaver, PA

Since last February when I first met Min and Andrew when they were pregnant with Rita, I've been visiting them every 3 months this year to capture Rita's first year. And it has been such a pleasure! My Mary is only a few months older than Rita, but it feels like they are the same … Continue reading Rita is 1 – First Birthday Session – Family Portraits – Beaver, PA

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. It was actually the first wedding I'd shot on my own, so I guess you could say Hannah has seen Elders Ridge Photography from its infancy when she was … Continue reading Hannah is 3 – Brady’s Run Park – Children Portraits – Beaver County, PA Photographer

Rita at 6 Months – Baby’s First Year – Beaver, PA Photographer

A little planning goes a long way, folks! Rita's mom styled this shoot and OMG: amazing! I don't need to say much here - the pictures speak for themselves! And after the inside stuff, I always like to get some family pictures. We worked bridges in to 2 of the last 3 shoots, so it … Continue reading Rita at 6 Months – Baby’s First Year – Beaver, PA Photographer

We had a beautiful evening on the ridge for John and Kim's family portraits - yes, this is the backdrop I look at every day, folks! Beautiful Elders Ridge in all its glory!

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

Donna and Elle – Family portraits – Indiana, PA

Again, I'm a little behind on posting some of my sessions! Terrible! I guess I could blame it on being 9 months pregnant, but being 9 months pregnant hasn't really kept me from doing much else, says the girl who is feverishly laundering all neutral baby clothes, dusting, vacuuming, scrubbing, moving stuff, still working full-time, … Continue reading Donna and Elle – Family portraits – Indiana, PA

Laura’s 2 — Family portraits –Blue Spruce Park — Indiana, PA

Two months ago, I had the pleasure of photographing one of my best friends and her lovely family in celebration of her daughter's second birthday. O.M.G., I can't believe they are 2 already! And by "they" and I mean her daughter, Laura, and my son, Max. Well, Max isn't quite 2, but soon. Steph and … Continue reading Laura’s 2 — Family portraits –Blue Spruce Park — Indiana, PA
