It’s always exciting when one of your besties tells you that they’re expecting! I was beyond thrilled when Susanna told me back in September. Since we’re the creative type, we took to pinterest to find a fun way to photograph the announcement. I must say the mini blue pumpkin that Susanna came up with was such a darling way to do it! (even if it was a little sticky. :D) I’ve done Susanna and Jon’s pictures several times over the years. Click here, here and here to see their family grow.
Thank you for having me do your pictures year after year!
Congratulations to the cutest family around!
The moment the puppy realized the blue pumpkin meant an addition to the family and another competitor for the toys. 😀
Being big brothers is a very serious thing!

Spring came and went so fast for me this year. (Summer too!) Life has been crazy busy in such a great way. The only thing is that in times like these I can hardly find the time to put on make up, much less blog. 😦 I’m finally digging through all of my pictures to scrape together a post for you all. Hope you all enjoy! 🙂
We got a new puppy! His name is Silas. 🙂
Isabelle bought an orphan calf off from a friend of ours. His name is Henri (pronounced with an “Aw” sound instead of the “h”. If you’ve watched Liberty’s Kids, you’ll know what I mean. 😀 ) and his favorite snack is bananas. 😀

The four of us oldest at a Jane Austen/Regency era ball that Emily hosted. Emily went as Cinderella and I was in my 1770’s-80’s ball dress.

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. 😀
This was one of my favorite moments of the trip. Imagine getting paid to dress up and walk cows down the road!

Oh the terror of getting called up as a volunteer during a tour. 😀

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!!
Our cow feeder makes for a cool framing shot. 🙂
Can you spot the geese?
Look at all the birds!

Tired out from all the snow
Have a great week!!
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 🙂
