My kiddos love playing dress up, so whenever I find a costume on the cheaps I pick it up for them.  Currently my daughter has a buttload of princess dresses, a kimono, a witch dress, and a Supergirl costume.  My son has Buzz Lightyear, Iron Man, and Wolverine.  He is currently obsessed with Wolverine, but a couple weeks ago he insisted on wearing Iron Man.  I let the kids dress up and took them out to the yard for some pictures (for me) and to run off some energy (for them.)



Andrea & Rich Say “I Do”

I’ve known Andrea for a few years.  I met her when we attended the same Bible study and Sunday School.  When I heard that she was engaged I was so happy for her, and I was even happier when I got to meet up with her and Rich for their engagement photos.  They are so cute together, and Rich is a truly great guy who makes her happy.  They got married on October 12th.  I had the honor of taking some photographs after their ceremony.  Here are some of my favorites.


Congratulations, guys.  You are a beautiful couple, and I am so grateful that I got to be a part of your special day!

*H* Family

I’ve known Liza since high school and was so excited when she took advantage of the special offer I posted on Facebook for $50 off a session.  We met up at Newtown Battlefield on a chilly, cloudy Sunday afternoon, but it was worth it.  I was able to get some awesome shots of her and her kiddos.  Here are just a few of my favorites.


Thanks again, Liza!  It was great to see you and your kids.  You have a gorgeous family!

*O* Family

I met Andrea on Facebook (love FB for that reason alone – I meet so many amazing clients that way!)  She posted on one of the rummage sale pages that she was looking for a photographer so I messaged her my info.  We scheduled for Labor Day weekend but then weather forced us to postpone, and after a month we were finally able to meet up at Round Top.  It was a beautiful evening and I got some great shots.  It helped a lot that they were all so photogenic, and her kiddos were a breeze to work with.

Thank you for giving me the chance to capture some memories for your family, Andrea.  I can’t wait until next time!

When this is the first shot of your session you know it’s going to be amazing!


Could this little man be any more perfect??








So much fun!




This was actually just a quick snapshot, but I fell in love with the black and white version.

Pumpkin Farm

On Tuesday my husband and I took our daughter out of school early for a trip to the pumpkin farm.  We usually go every year on Columbus Day, but this year my husband had to work, and we figured that going on a day when kids had school would be a lot less crowded.  We were right.  It was so much nicer going on a weekday while everyone was working or in school.  We stopped and picked up my sister and her boyfriend (partly because they wanted to come, and partly because I needed someone to take a family photo of us and I didn’t trust a random stranger with my camera.  It’s okay, though, because we treated them to nachos and apple cider, so it’s all good.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from Tuesday:

Me with  my family. I love how I am the only one looking at the camera.  Even my husband couldn’t manage it.  😉

One that my sister snapped of me with my son.  I ADORE this photo because it is a real, honest-to-goodness smile.  My son never gives a legit smile in pictures.

A couple that I snapped of my sister and her boyfriend.  They are such a cute couple of lovebirds that I couldn’t resist.

Hope you enjoyed these few pictures.  I’ll have some more posts coming soon with images from my most recent sessions.  Until then, what are your favorite things about this time of year?  I love hot chocolate, big cuddly sweaters, and the smell of fallen leaves.  🙂
