For me, it’s such a privilege to photograph the same family every year. Not only do I get to catch up on what’s happened in their lives since our last session, I love being able to see how the children have grown and how their personalities have blossomed.  I first photographed these siblings two years ago, when Ailey, the youngest, was just an infant. They’re now between the ages of 2 and 7, and I love how these photos show their personalities. To me, the perfect photo is not when everyone is smiling perfectly at the camera– the perfect photo is capturing children just how they are everyday.

First, let’s take a trip down memory lane…

I know I’ve said it before, but I just really love spending time photographing NEPA’s high school seniors. Meet Alex. He’s president of the senior class at Abington Heights, editor of the yearbook, a member of the mock trial team and pretty much every other organization at the school. He plans to go to law school, and for his undergrad, he’s applying to some pretty impressive schools. We had a great time walking around downtown Scranton for his senior session. Here are some of my favorite photos. Enjoy the rest of your senior year, Alex!

Meet Liz — a sweet Abington Heights senior who is a total natural in front of the camera. We had a great time at her senior portrait session. Here are some of my favorites.

Taryn’s senior photos

Senior sessions inspire me. Not only do I get to create beautiful images of some amazing seniors, I get to hear about their dreams and what they do in school. Lately, I’ve had the chance to photograph some pretty amazing kids. Taryn is one of them. Not only is her smile contagious, she is such a sweetheart. After she graduates from Abington Heights, she hopes to become a middle school science teacher. I’m convinced that she will be an amazing teacher.

For her senior photos, we spent some time at the Waverly Community House and the horse stable where she fell in love with horses. Here are some favorites.

There is something so special to me when I get the chance to photograph my friends and their families. I met Michelle during my first week at Ithaca College, and we quickly became great friends. From memories made around Ithaca to spending a semester together exploring Washington, D.C., college would have been drastically different without meeting Michelle.

Now we live five hours apart, instead of in the same apartment. Her boys are growing up so quickly, so I was so glad to capture some family photos for her and her husband, Kenny, this summer. Here are a few favorites.

I first met Katie when she was in fifth or sixth grade. It’s hard to believe she will be off to college this time next year. Katie, a senior at Abington Heights, plans to attend Pace University in New York City. For her senior photos, we split her session between downtown Scranton and a local park.

Katie was a natural in front of the camera. Not only is she gorgeous, she’s a sweetheart too. Have an amazing senior year, Katie!

Living a few states away from my niece and nephew means I sadly don’t get to see them as often as I’d like, and when I do, it’s always amazing how much they’ve grown. Kara, Owen and their awesome parents came to visit us last month, and we had a great time hanging out around Northeast Pennsylvania. From fireworks and a Railriders game to horseback riding and picnics, we made so many memories.

And if you stay with me for six days, you can just about guarantee that we’ll sneak a photo session in at some point. We ended the session with some time on the splash pad at the South Abington Park. I can’t wait to make more memories with these kids.
