Stunning Miss Hayley, class of 2014 | Wilkes-Barre, PA Senior Portrait Photographer

Miss Hayley came in for a 2-hour combo senior session. I absolutely insist on scheduling my seniors for 2-hours. I love to be able to take the time and really capture some variety for them, both in location & outfits. It is after-all documenting a monumental year of a young persons life. Hayley, her boyfriend, Mom & Dad were such fun to work with! We had a great time, and in my opinion the outcome is GORGEOUS! We ended up in 4 different spots, with loads of variety, as you can see.

Welcome to the world, baby boy! | Mountain Top, PA Newborn Photographer

This squishy little guy came in to see me, and slept like a CHAMP! I was spoiled by how easy he was on me. Dad is a baseball coach, and we were able to incorporate some fun baseball themed shots for him. I absolutely love when families bring in ideas for me to tie into something close to their hearts! Little Tyler’s proud big sis came in at the end of the session for a some sibling shots that I am in LOVE with <3 Sometimes it gets tough trying to pose siblings with a newborn, but this

Here comes baby :) | Dallas, PA Photographer

I had the pleasure of working with these two last week out at Frances Slocum. Jillian and her hubby traveled all the way from New Jersey for the session, and Dad-to-be is a fire fighter out there. Jillian is a native to the valley and heard about me from a high school friend, and they both earned a $10 print credit for taking part in my referral program! I ❤❤❤ referrals 🙂 I have to say that I hope with my next one I can manage to pull off stunning like Jillian did at 35 weeks! I’m looking

Family session on the farm | Mountain Top, PA Photographer

I couldn’t wait to get home last night and work on these previews!!! I just love shooting in new locations, and this location is near and dear to the families heart. These three decided to get together and put a gift certificate they won in a contest to good use, towards a custom session to surprise their Mom with for Christmas! I am in love with the way they turned out, and the fact that we were able to tie in the location to a place that their Mom loves. We even did a few shots with her

Monster Bash styled shoot | Drums PA Photographer

Recently I stepped out of my norm a bit, and teamed up with Cristy over at to do some detail shots on a styled Monster Bash party table she put together… and I was floored by how cute every little detail of what she put together was! I for one know where to go for inspiration, and help putting together party details from now on, this girl has some serious skills 🙂 Not only is she talented and super nice, she runs the blog & design of as a

SOOC Before & After | Luzerne County Photographer

I wanted to share a little bit on insight into how I get these final images where it looks like baby is just hanging out in a not so safe setting… I can assure you baby is NEVER in any danger of rolling off something like this. This is the result of a composite image, two images combined to get the final result. In this image I take a shot with Dad holding babies head, then the same shot with Mom holding babies bottom, and the final image you see there are no Mom or Dad arms in the frame!
