Cody Senior Pictures | Homewood, PA Photographer

Cody Senior Pictures | Homewood, PA PhotographerHey everyone! This photoshoot has a really cool back story. Way back when I first set up my photography facebook page, only friends and familyΒ  liked it for a while.Β  One day, I saw that a total stranger liked my page. I was so excited! Fast forward 2 years, I met this same person at a concert that me and my family played at. (Yes, we’re a band. Another story for another time πŸ˜‰ ) I knew exactly who she was the moment she said her name. She said that her son was a senior and she wanted me to do his pictures- at one of my favorite places too!

Cody is one dapper guy! He was an awesome model to work with. We had a great time climbing all around Buttermilk falls getting cool shots. Take a look at them. They. are. AWESOME! πŸ™‚

Kathryn Senior Pictures | Youngstown, OH Photographer

When Kathryn asked if I could take her senior pictures, I was so excited! I had taken herΒ sister’s senior pictures last year at a gorgeous park and Kathryn wanted to go to the same place. We’d planed to go on a Wednesday this spring with some of her sisters and some of mine. When Wednesday came however, it rained. So we planed it for the next Wednesday…and the next… and the next…and so on. Every Wednesday it rained. Finally, on the spur of the moment, we decided to risk it. And guess what! It rained. It poured. There were tornado watch alerts on the radio. (not joking) But we studied the weather map and decided to drive out to the park and see what the weather looked like when we got there. When we got there the rain had stopped and the sun was trying to come out! It turned out beautiful! Here’s some of my favorites! Enjoy πŸ™‚

Amelia Senior Pictures | Youngstown OH Photographer

Hey All!

I decided to end my blogging drought by posting one of the senior picture sessions I did this summer. I’m still alive but still very busy. Work, school, and photography have taken most of my time. I have TONSSSSS of pictures to show you all. Also, I’ve been updating the galleries a bit. View them “here”. My facebook gets quite a few updates as well. Check out my page “here” and click “like” to stay updated!

~~*~~

I’ve known Amelia and her family for a number of years. In fact, we did the math and we arrived at 8 years! Amelia is so much fun to be around. She’s also amazing at finding the perfect locations for a photoshoot. We had an epically awesome time. To top it off, we stopped and got drinks and a doughnut when we were done! πŸ™‚ Here’s some of the awesomeness from the shoot.

Enjoy! πŸ™‚

Sooooooo I FINALLY got this post up!Β  It took me forever to go through all these pics. Thanks for being patient even though this was a few days late πŸ™‚ I’ll be putting up another post near the end of the week to make up for this so keep your eyes peeled.

This was our second year going to Williamsburg. We went with a group of large families and we all lived on the same street at the resort. So in other words, TONS of fun and fellowship. πŸ™‚ It was awesome to renew old friendships and make new ones. Here is just a SMALL sampling of our week. Enjoy πŸ™‚

We traveled to Bacon’s Castle which is the oldest brick building in Virginia. To get there, we had to use the ferry. It was a first for most of us.

West Virginia Vacation | Cass WV Photographer

Shenandoah mountains

This years vacation was quite different for us. We decided to vacation in West Virginia instead of going to the beach. The scenery was breathtakingly beautiful. We went down just as the fall colors were at their peak. Here is just a small sample of the beautiful pictures we captured. Enjoy πŸ™‚
