I met up with Jessa when there were still a few leaves on the trees and it wasn’t quite so cold out. In between a day that included several showers, we squeezed in a pretty great senior session. Jessa is an accomplished musician who hopes to attend college for music. She brought her violin and guitar with her, and I love the end result.
On a day when my hometown of Erie, Pa. could get another 12 inches of snow (on top of the 12+ inches of snow already on the ground), I thought it would be nice to finally blog some photos I took on a trip home this summer.
We picked a perfect day in July for a photo session with my nieces. Here are a few favorites.
I love meeting a couple and thinking “Wow, they are perfect for each other.” Photographing Heather and Will was one of those times. I’ve known Heather for a long time, but this was the first time I met Will. Not only were they were fun to be around, they were a joy to photograph. Their interactions came so naturally, and I’m so happy I got to capture these photos for this sweet couple.
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…
And here are the latest photos…
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.
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.
