Danielle & John {A Love Story} Western PA Photographer

 She saw him and thought he was cute so she asked about him.  He lived nearby and went to her church.   He proposed at church under the guise of filming a multimedia project. The rest, as they say, is history.  A history that hasn't been written yet.  They'll be married in September.  The end of summer will be the beginning of their forever.  I can't wait to capture their wedding day!

We took some photos at his grandparent's camp and then went to the river by his house.  The sun was just beginning to set.  It was beautiful!  

We drove around his family property.  The views were spectacular!  

We finished the day with a little stop motion video. How cute is this?

Hannah: A senior session (Western PA Photographer)

Hannah is one of the most level headed high school seniors I've ever met.  She works as a CNA and takes amazing care of her residents all while going to school.  She's also incredibly beautiful, funny, and all around awesome!  We met at Clear Creek State Park for her senior session.  It's one of my favorite locations! Don't you love her dress?  She brought just the right ammount of sass with her and of course she brought her beautiful smile!  Really, she made my job too easy! 

Hannah, I wish you much success on your journey through nursing school.  You will be an amazing nurse!

Tiff & Adrian: A Prom Story (Western PA Photographer)

When Tiff asked me to take pictures of her and her date, Adrian, before prom my answer was an emphatic "Yes".  I knew there was no better place to take them than the ball field!  Both Tiff and Adrian are avid fans of the game.  They both play for their highschool and they both love the Pirates as much as I do which happens to be a really really lot!  So after the chaos of hair and makeup we headed to the ball field and snapped away!  It was a beautiful cloudy day and the rain held off just long enough for us to get the shots we wanted.  A few weeks later Tiff and I finished up her senior pics at thefield in her new softball uniform.  These two both graduated last week and I couldn't be more proud!  They are heading off to college together in the fall.  I wish them bucket loads of happiness and success!

Lisa & Chris ( A Love Story) Western PA Photographer

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)”
E.E. Cummings

 I love photographing weddings but elopements are my favorite. There is something so romantic about an elopement.  I loved being a part of Lisa and Chris's special day.  On the deck of The Foxurg Inn, overlooking the beautiful Allegheny river these two promised to cherish, honor, and love one another forever.  It was a beautiful moment on a beautiful day.

Kim & Brian Engagement Session {Western PA Photographer}

From our first e-mail contact, I was excited to meet Kim!  She seemed like the down-to-earth type of person that I love to work with!  Both she and her fiance, Brian, live out of town so coordinating their engagement session took some planning.  While we waited for the session we created an amazing Pinterest board full of beautiful engagement photos.  I knew that Foxburg would be the perfect place for their session.  I kept checking the weather hoping that the rain predictions were wrong, but on the day of the session as rain drizzled, I thought fast and quickly contacted Kim to see if she would be interested in taking some of the photos at the Foxburg Free Library.  An avid reader, she thought it was a fantastic idea. We were graciously given access to the library and even got to make friends with the library dog!
Armed with our umbrella we ventured out into the rain for some shots too.  I am so excited for their wedding in June.  It's on the Summer Solstice which happens to be one of my most favorite days.  I've always wanted to attend a big Summer Solstice party!

Miss Ava {Western PA Photographer}

When Miss Ava's mom first contacted me for a session it was in the middle of winter and so cold outside we worried Ava would freeze.  So we decided to wait until warmer weather.  Luckily, I decided to put a studio in the upstairs and was able to have the session sooner than expected!

Miss Ava came ready to model. she brought cute dresses, great shoes, and a perfect cowgirl hat!  She also brought her super cute smile and the perfect amount of sass!

Isn't she adorable?  Thanks for coming to the studio Ava! It was so much fun!
