I had wanted to take photos on the campus at Penn State in Hazelton for many months. There are so many great spots on the campus. When Christine contacted me about her son's senior photos I suggested the campus and she agreed. So, with the weather on the verge of rain we set out to take JJ's senior photos.
Meet JJ....this handsome young man could be a model. We had a fun time trying out the photo spots. JJ posed perfectly and made my job very easy.
I always encourage my seniors to bring clothing changes and any props with them that show who they are. I loved JJ's sophisticated suit and his causal shorts. He also brought his bike and soccer ball.
You would never guess in these photos that we were being attacked by little flying bugs!
Thank you Christine for letting me take JJ's senior photos. He is a handsome young man. And thank you to JJ's girlfriend for being my grey card holder!
JJ...thank you for letting me capture this special time in your life. Much luck to you in your future, which I am sure will be very bright!
Abby and Brooke are my neighbors and were some of my first clients. I photographed them last year for Abby's school project. This year we did school pictures. They have grown in the past year and so have I as a photographer.
We went down to Ice Lakes. It was a cloudy day and they rain started to fall just as we were taking our last photos. I love the light in these photos and the girls are so photogenic.
I love their blue eyes and pretty smiles.
Thank you Abby and Brooke for letting me capture this time in your lives. Have a great year in school.
I am starting to really love doing Senior portraits. I like how I can concentrate on just one person and do nothing but make them look beautiful. Being a highschool senior is a special time in a young persons life.
Jessica was very quiet and didn't really want all the attention but did start to warm up to me and the camera. She takes beautiful photos!
This is one of my favorite photos!
We found a clearing in the trees and some wooden benches. It was a perfect backdrop for Jessicas photos. Thanks Jessica for letting me take just one more...
Thank you Jessica for letting me capture this special time in your life. It is a time in your life where you have everything to look forward to. Good luck on all you do.
We had a beautiful afternoon to take pictures. I love going to Nescopeck park for photos. The sunlight was perfect and the family was fun. We did a family session and a senior session for Jessica.
Nescopeck Park has a little bit of everything. I love the bridge and the spots by the lake. The Snyder family was very nice and funny. We had fun walking around the lake looking for pretty spots.
I love this shot of the family. Family photos are so important to have done at least once a year. Everyone changes so much and it is extra special to have when the kids are grown because soon they will be off on their own.
Thank you Snyder family for letting me capture this time in your lives.
