Spring is so close. . . | Child Photography Athens PA

We have had a very mild winter so I really shouldn’t complain and actually I’m not complaining, but I am saying I’m ready for spring. I’m ready for days without cold temperatures followed by days with slightly colder temperatures then weekends with warm temperatures and then back down again. The yo-yo weather is not something favored by my sinuses, but of course, blooming flowers … Read More Spring is so close. . . | Child Photography Athens PA

My bedspread is not white | Athens, Pennsylvania Photographer

When I look at Instagram this is the impression I get: Every photographer owns white bedspreads in rooms with white walls and white ceilings, perfect for angelic photos of their blue eyed, blond, curly haired babies sleeping while wearing homemade neutral colored sweaters or magazine worthy pajamas on a furry blanket.Every photographer has hardwood floors, perfect for capturing the reflections of their solemn faced cherub, … Read More My bedspread is not white | Athens, Pennsylvania Photographer

The A* Family | Elmira NY Newborn Photographer

Their home was cozy, so well decorated and coordinated. Honestly, I was a bit jealous of how organized it all looked, though I’m sure there are crazy days there too with a two year old and a newborn. Even more than jealous, I was impressed with how the family had made the small home into a cozy place for a sweet family. The walls … Read More The A* Family | Elmira NY Newborn Photographer

She wouldn’t keep her mittens on and the wind that day was one of those … Read More Winter weather, cold babies, and weekly favorites | Athens, Pennsylvania Child Photographer

10 on 10 January | Pennsylvania Photographer

It was like she had found the most exciting location in the world the way my daughter stomped her tiny 15 month old, boot-clad feet in the mud puddle in the park of a city we’d visited for the day. We hadn’t brought extra socks so her dad and I wavered between telling her and her brother to stop playing with the icy water … Read More 10 on 10 January | Pennsylvania Photographer

Letters to my Son January | Athens, Pennsylvania Child Photographer

When I look at this photo of you I see a little boy who has my heart completely and has since the day I first learned you were growing inside me. I see your brilliance, your wit, your charm, your amazing ability to look at almost any situation in a positive light.

A little snow must fall. . .eventually | Athens, PA Photographer

You would have thought we had never seen snow before the way Jonathan and I quickly dressed ourselves and the baby and headed outside into the cold. “Quick! Before it melts!” I called as I buttoned Grace’s new Christmas-styled coat. With a winter that was featuring temperatures way above normal I knew the day could warm up fast and turn our yard into mud … Read More A little snow must fall. . .eventually | Athens, PA Photographer
