The Emr Family

edit (57 of 114)Fall sessions are in full swing and colors are at their peak!  I am always sad to see the leaves drop at the end of Autumn.  This time of year is my absolute favorite!  The crisp air….the smell of burning leaves…..a warm fire…a cozy sweater…apple crisp and pumpkin pie…ALL MY FAVS!  And best of all, I get to work with so many AMAZING families!

The Emr family did not disappoint!  They needed an updated picture for their website, so what better excuse to make a full session out of it!  They even brought their furry family member, Jake.  He was one big fluffy ball of energy.  Jake loved all the smells of the farm and went on a few “exploring adventures” during the session.  I am so glad they brought him because pets always add a fun and candid element to a family session.  And we all know that some days we like our pets better than our humans ;O)  (That was a joke..but somedays its kinda true)

Thank you Emr family for giving me the privilege to photograph you!

Ushler Family

face (2 of 2)I have been a total slacker in the blog department.  So what better to do when I get called off work tonight??…. DO A BLOG POST!!

The Ushlers will soon be welcoming their 3rd child.  We decided to do their maternity shoot at Tabora Farms apple orchards.  Crissy warned me that I may be up for a challenge trying to get her little guy to cooperate for a photo session.  I think ALL moms worry about how they will get their toddler to sit still long enough for one pic…..let alone the hundreds of shots that are snapped in a family session!   To answer that question…..You CAN’T make a toddler sit and pose for the camera!!  This is when my job gets a bit more creative!  But in the end, we always manage to capture their sweet innocence!

In all the sessions I do, it’s always that one little spunky toddler who will give us the sweetest shots as they are running away from the camera, turning around with that mischievous smile.  Greyson gave me a run for my money, but he was sure cute doing it!!

Many blessings to this sweet family as they welcome their newest member in the coming weeks!

Rachel

Summer sessions are in full swing and the fall rush is right around the corner!  I don’t know about you, but is summer flying by this year or what!?  Trying to savor these last few weeks because once August hits we are at the beach, then home for back to school craziness!

This week I was honored to work with Rachel.  She is interested in pursuing modeling and needed some portfolio shots.   I think she nailed it!  She’s already got the modeling thing down in my book.  Good luck Rachel as you pursue your dream!

Man’s Best Friend

edit (3 of 4)

Meet Baur!  I think Baur is just “a little” spoiled……after all, he DID have an entire photo session devoted around HIM!  He even came with his very own eagles jersey and matching hat!

Tim and Joanne are true dog lovers, I believe they may have more dogs living in their house than humans??  (Correct me if I am wrong guys!)  Whenever Joanne and I are chatting together at work, somehow we always end up talking about our dogs!  What can I say, I guess we are just two proud dog Mamas!

Tim and Baur are best buds!  On most occasions, Baur goes to work with Tim and gets to ride along in his work van.  Tim told me that Baur is considered a company employee!  I was told that Tim will often get a ‘doggy-tude” if he does not take Baur to work with him.

Baur is getting older now and has not been feeling his best lately.  One night at work I heard Joanne talking about her boyfriends dog that was ill  (of course my ears perk up when I hear someone talking about their sick pup).  She said she wanted to do something special for Tim to give him some lasting memories of Baur.  That is when I chimed in and said, “Let’s do a photoshoot!” ……………..Well 2 weeks later I got to meet this sweet boy in person!

Lets just say Baur had some pain medication on board that day so he was one happy camper during his shoot!  I say WHATEVER WORKS!  If I had to pick one word to describe this dog (from the short time I met him), it would be “HAPPY”!  Did you ever see a dog smile?!  I DID!!  What a fun shoot we had!  So thankful we got to capture these memories of your special friend!

If Baur could talk, I think he would say “Thank You……Thank you for giving me the best life possible!  Thank you for taking me to work with you everyday and giving me that “special place” in your truck.  Thank you for all those yummy treats you spoil me with.  Thank you for all those long walks and ball chases.  Thank you for letting me cuddle in your bed at night.  Thank you for those ear scratches and long belly rubs.  Thank you for giving me lots of furry friends to play with everyday.  But most of all……Thank you for loving me the way you do and for being a dogs best friend!

Have YOU hugged your dog today!?

Golden Hour Session at Valley Forge

edit (42 of 257)

 

Valley Forge Park is one of my all time favorite locations for a fall shoot!  The colors and vast hills are breathtaking this time of year!  Add in a beautiful sunset and you have the perfect backdrop for a family session!

Fanny and I have been chatting about this for quite some time!  I have been dying to get my camera on her GORGEOUS family…….as you will see, this beautiful lady and her two handsome men are incapable of taking a bad picture!  They even brought their furry family member along to join the fun!  April was such a good girl and sat still for all her shots!

This session was a blast and one of my favorites to date!  Fanny, thank you for giving me the honor…I hope to work with you again soon!
