Jason and Marissa get married!!
We hoped the weather would be sunny and warm but it was cool and rainy. Despite the weather not being perfect, the day was beautiful. It didn't seem like 3 months had passed since I was taking their engagement photos. Time sure flies....
The colors that Marissa choose , teal and purple, looked so nice together.
I love details...
The church was beautiful, the ceremony was touching and the bride and groom gleamed. You could tell that they are so in love.
Congratulations Jay and Marissa. Thank you for choosing me to capture this special day for you.
Love, Laughter and Happiness
And Marissa...Blessed is the bride that it rains upon..
Such a fun photo shoot!
There is so much time and money spent on finding and buying the perfect prom dress. It is a shame that they only wear the dress for a short time. Why not get all dolled up and put on your prom dress to have a photo shoot. A beautiful girl in a beautiful dress makes for beautiful photos!
We drove around for a bit trying to find the perfect spot for her photos. We finally found this bridge which was near a creek. It was perfect . I liked the contrast of the fancy dress against the simple wooden bridge and forest trail.
Such special memories in a special dress. This was her Senior Prom. Her last time to dress up for a high school dance. I was glad that I could capture this memory for her.
Newborns are so sweet when they are tiny. They are so innocent and beautiful in their own special way.
Meet Loren Grace.
This little princess didn't want to sleep for her photo sessions. She would fall asleep for a few minutes and I'd take as many photos as I could until we had to change her position. When we moved her, her little eyes would pop open. Despite her not wanting to snooze too long I was able to get some great shots.
This is what Loren was like most of the time! Wide awake and alert. Her mom tried so hard to nurse, rock and sing to Loren but she wanted to stay awake for this photo shoot.
I love all these shots of her because it shows her little personality and I even caught a couple of smiles.
Thank you Loren Grace for letting me capture this time of your life. You will grow up so fast and be tiny no more.

We had a long, cold winter this year (2014). It seemed to last forever. We broke a record and had the snowiest February here in PA. I took several pictures during the winter season that I would like to share now that we are slowly seeing signs of spring.
This picture called "This little tree" was showcased on our local news. I love how the light dances off the ice covered trees and the little tree seemed to be looking at the same view I was.
Goodbye winter...Hello Spring...
