Beautiful Happy Family

I must have said it at least 5 times during the session, this baby never so much as even made a grimacing face let alone a cry... he was so happy and such a pleasant baby... WOW... so different from my own child at 4 months, ha ha! I left in amazement!

And seriously folks, I'm willing to put money on the fact that this family has never taken a bad picture in their lives.

I love how baby is looking at the dog here!

Gorgeous blue-eyed baby!

Happy Belated Birthday!

I had been really looking forward to photograping this little guy because I knew ahead of time just how adorable he was going to be! I went to school with his mommy and it was a pleasure to get to photograph him in honor of his first birthday. I love how this job has given me the opportunity to reconnect with people and see how beautiful their families have grown to be.

This shot here is my favorite for several reasons: okay, he looks adorable number 1, number 2 he's throwing a ball and his mom was (probably still is!) a really good softball player, and number 3, he's playing in the birthday gift that his incredibly wonderful godmother gave him, who also happened to gift him with this session with me. Yep, it's my favorite.
This one is a close second!

Oh wait, this one might be my favorite?

Of course no first birthday is complete without cake!

Just a little message to let everyone know I've been a little behind lately with a family emergency ontop of my little girl being sick. I will be working this week to get caught up as much as I can and hope to have all of my proofing completed by this weekend. If I haven't responded to emails quite as fast, I assure you it's been nothing personal!

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding.

In Loving Memory of my Grandma who died July 26th 2009 and left behind a loving family who will forever cherish the time they had with her.

The most laughter I've ever heard...

... was at this session today. Here's a little secret about me: I am totally energized by other people's energy. I left this session feeling like I wanted to go climb a mountain! The goal was to capture this beautiful mom and her children as the loving yet fun family that they are. If I didn't do my job today with these photos, then I'm probably in the wrong business because it was so easy to see, then even my 2-year old may have even been able to snap a few good ones!

It was such a pleasure meeting you today guys, I hope you enjoy just a few of my favorites!

Ummmm, wow.

That's what I said when they stepped out of the car looking so gorgeous. They get the prize for driving the longest distance for a photo session with me, two hours... but I am so overly confident that the results were well worth it.

You just can't beat shots like these anywhere else but Gettysburg.

As the sun was just about to go completely down, the sky had a pink tint to it, which of course perfectly matched her shirt. Why wouldn't anything else have gone so perfectly?!!

I wanted to do a cartwheel when I saw her yellow dress that matched the Black-Eyed Susans I found today.

Why do I like this photo so much? Because mom and dad are ripped... and I get to do newborn photos with those muscles, yippie!!!

Oh yes folks, I do have an indoor area in my home for photographs, it's small and I never use it since I do like to go to people's homes but it but it is available!

Thank you so much for driving out here to my home today, having to witnessing my daughter's meltown, and for such beautiful people inside and out. I am so excited to meet baby P very soon!

Fun Family!

As much as I loooove photographing babies, I really find these ages a blast because they're so full of energy! This family has three gorgeous blue-eyed children and so beautiful family that loves each other + willing to go along with my crazy ideas + evening sunset at the golden hour + awesome clouds in the sky = beautiful photographs.
