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 for each session. This year was “painting on the river at sunset.” Amanda and Hannah visit the river a lot, so it just felt like the perfect location. The last image is one of my all time favs! Happy birthday, sweet girl! Can’t wait to see what we do next year!

Devon — Senior Portraits — Indiana PA Photographer

When Devon’s mom saw the portraits of Devon, she gave me the greatest compliment a photographer can receive: “you captured how handsome he is!” As a mother of a boy myself, I can totally relate to what she meant: boys aren’t really into getting their picture taken and often act goofy or silly, or just plain don’t smile and give you that “stare” begging us to stop “torturing” them. Capturing how we as mothers see our handsome sons growing into men right before our eyes is probably one of the reasons I love senior pictures so much!

Like many good country boys, Devon is into hunting. I look out over this gorgeous valley every day and the sunsets have just been amazing here, so I was super excited to photograph Devon and his hunting gear looking out over Elders Ridge.
