There is someone I want you to meet!

My photography journey didn’t begin with a dream, it evolved into a dream.  Then somewhere along the way “My dreams are….” turned into “I don’t have time to dream, I’m treading water to stay afloat…”  I am absolutely certain there are people out there busier than I am.  But if I learned nothing else from…

How does my availability work?

Have you tried to book a session with me in the past and couldn’t get in?  Are you confused by how my availability works and why I book so early at times?  I don’t want you to be frustrated by how I book sessions, instead I want you to be informed so you understand how…

Updated limited availability for 2016!

I almost don’t believe it myself.  I have quadruple checked thinking maybe I made a mistake somewhere, but I haven’t.  As of right now, I’m booked through August!  To say I’m “honored, grateful and shocked” doesn’t quite sum up how I feel about saying I’m booked this early in the year.  My heart is so…

Choosing between in home and studio newborn session.

Newborn sessions can be done two ways: in home lifestyle or in studio.  I love both types of sessions and decided to offer them both.  Sure, I could only offer one type of newborn session, but why limit myself?  They both are beautiful. So what’s the difference?  How do you choose which is right for you?  I’m…

How the weather affects your session.

Outdoor sessions are beautiful.  Getting outside in beautiful light with space to move around makes for happier clients and beautiful images.  These sessions don’t always come easy, though.  The weather will greatly affect your outdoor session.  Whether we like it or not, we are at Mother Nature’s mercy.  In Northeast PA weather is so unpredictable…

Don’t let your “one day” turn into “too late”.

I just want to lose some weight first…  I always look so terrible in photos…  I am terrible about putting outfits together, we won’t look as good as those families…  My schedule is so busy…  My husband hates family photos and will never go for it. Does any of this sound familiar?  Is there an…

Photography Studio Tour Moscow, PA

For those of you who have been following me or are clients, you may know this is my third studio.  But like they say, “Third time’s the charm.”  I believe that to be true in this case.  The first two just didn’t work out for various reasons.  Now I’m so happy to have my largest…

3 reasons you should NOT have a maternity session.

Trust me, I GET IT!  I have 3 children myself.  I listen to expectant moms all the time.  No matter where I am, I hear what they are saying.  They feel fat, unattractive, tired, swollen, etc.  And if this is not their first pregnancy, that all begins at 13 weeks with #2 and 5 weeks…

Choosing print sizes: Don’t be fooled by the number

Choosing print size can be challenging.  Don’t be fooled by the numbers!  Yes, even me, it happened to me!   I was raised with the mindset that 10×13 was HUGE.  We mostly had 5×7’s and 8×10’s.  My mom does have 2 16×20’s in her house, but that is it and they are VERY old.  When I…

My Promo Video NEPA Portrait & Wedding Photographer

I am so excited to debut my new promo video!  It’s been something I have been wanting to do for a very long time and didn’t think I’d ever find the right videographer for me.  Earlier this year, quite by accident, I found her!  The stars aligned and it was all meant to be.  I…

Disc? No Disc? Art? Albums? Choices!

There is no right or wrong answer.  There are options and you have to decide what is most important to you and suits your needs.  I don’t believe that everyone has the same needs.  Therefore, I do not believe in a one size fits all package.  So let’s look at  some options and hopefully I…
