Williamsburg Vacation 2016 | Personal

Wow! I can hardly believe that this was two months ago! We took our annual Williamsburg trip this March. It was such a wonderful time with amazing weather and even more amazing friends.

I love how you can walk around the town and see such life happening all around. It’s not surprising to see quite a few people walking, running, horse riding, sitting, or gardening in full costume. As some of you may know, I have a crazy passion for historical sewing. It made my day when one of the Williamsburg employees asked where I worked and later on quite a few tourists asked for pictures.😀

Winter Wonderland Portraits | Personal

Hi! So it seems that winter finally decided to arrive in western Pennsylvania. Getting over 12 inches the other day was quite exciting! It was the perfect thing to break me out of my photography slump which always hits in January/February. Me, Emily and Isabelle decided to brave the cold and get some portrait shots so they could update their email profiles. I grabbed a few farm shots as well since it was soooooo BEAUTIFUL outside. Take a look at the snowy awesomeness!!

Phoebe Autumn Ballet Portraits | Beaver, PA Photographer

Phoebe Autumn Ballet Portraits | Beaver, PA Photographer

This has been a long awaited photoshoot! Phoebe and I have been buddies for over 15 years so she IS family. Ever since she started ballet, I would tell her that I would do a photoshoot with her one day. After a year or two things finally worked out and Phoebe and her sister (who also has a ton of ballerina experience🙂 ) came over on a deliciously warm autumn day. Phoebe probably did the equivalent of 4 workouts posing for me! Thank you Phoebe for all of your hard work and giving me the opportunity to do this!! Love ya!!

In this blog post, you’ll notice that ballet shoes are one of my favorite things EVER to photograph. (And also that 90% of the pictures are vertical. How that happened, I have no idea.😛 ) Since I had seen this post on one of my favorite photographer’s blog, I had been inspired to do something with ballet. We went to an old train station that also happened to have a little log cabin right next to it. It was the PERFECT location! I’ll stop talking and let you see for yourself. Here are some of my favorite pictures EVAHHH!! Enjoy🙂

12 Days Of a Farm Christmas Part 2 | Personal

Merry Christmas everyone!!

Here’s a project I did especially for you, my faithful blog readers! I wanted to thank you all for support over the past year. I wanted to capture the story of Christmas using what resources I had. All the pictures you see here were shot around the farm with the exception of the shepherd one. (Because we don’t have sheep and had to go to the neighbors to use theirs.😀 ) It was a lot of fun and hard work putting these 5 pictures together.

If you didn’t read the previous post I did a few days ago, I’ve been posting a picture a day for the 12 days of Christmas on my facebook page. I’m posting them up on here for all my non-facebookers to see!🙂 (You may or may not want to check it out. Especially over the next few days. I’ll be posting some behind the scenes photos and probably have something up on how I did the Wise Men Picture.)

I hope you guys enjoy these! Made with lots of love for you!🙂

12 Days Of a Farm Christmas Part 2 | Personal

8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
Luke 2:8-12 NIV
