Not all sessions have to be the whole family. These two chose to do a couples session last fall! They did have the kids jump in a few shots, but the majority was just the Mr. and the Mrs! We managed to squeak it in right before a storm hit, too! What a day!
I absolutely love doing sessions of mom with her kid(s). Catching those sweet interactions is just awesome. The session with Miss M and her son, Mr. G, was no exception. The bond they share is amazing. Thank you for allowing me to capture you two, once again, M!
I had the fantastic opportunity to do a shoot for an amazing non-profit organization called Mend On The Move. They work to help empower and employ women who are abuse survivors. If you are not familiar with their mission and work, please head to their site! Part of what these women do is make some really amazing jewelry. Each piece has a story or message, AND the proceeds go to a great cause!! PLEASEE check them out!!!
Hello, lovelies! It’s that time of year again…the annual KRP Senior Team search! I am accepting applications for those graduating in 2020 from ALL local high schools. If you’re interested in applying to represent KRP, please message me and I’ll send you the information. I am SO excited about this year! AHHH!
I had the chance to spend an evening this past summer doing a senior session with Tucker. Not only is he a hard working, well-spoken young man, but he’s also a pretty fantastic Cross Country athlete. At the time of the session my son was on the fence about joining the XC team, himself, and after talking to Tucker and his mom about it, I knew I could convince him to give it a “go”. My son ended up joining the team and would tell me about how one of the really nice high school boys would help the middle school students and encourage them. I don’t know how many of you spend time with seniors, but let me tell you…THAT is awesome. He made such a good impression on P and I am so grateful for that.
In addition to being kind and athletic, he also knew how to work the camera. He pretty much rocked this session (so did Jackson!)!
So, I suppose it would be obvious that I am WAY behind in blogging if I tell you that this maternity announcement has now turned into a beautiful baby girl who is nearly a month old?! Nevertheless, check out this ADORABLE announcement that was all planned out by the gorgeous mama! I loved her vision and these two were a blast to work with. Congrats and much love to this happy family of THREE!!!
On the coldest day of the year (or maybe ever), I was thinking about a session I did on the HOTTEST day of the year! Libby, a Meadville senior, braved some major heat (in her jeans and long sleeves!) to get some shots with her horse, Moose. We found a couple shaded areas so it wouldn’t be quite so overwhelming, and they both did great. I had so much fun with these two!!
Sometimes, we get a “warm” winter day and beautiful things happen. Suddenly, 60 degrees feels like 80, and we’re able to run and play outside as if it were spring or summer! For this session, we capitalized on that and grabbed some really fun shots. I am STILL cracking up at the number of poses and dance moves this kid displayed during our time together. HILARIOUS!! <3
It’s always such a great experience when you can watch a couple grow. I did an engagement session for these two beautiful humans a few years ago, and also had the pleasure of doing their maternity pictures! Let me tell you…these. two. are. FUN!! We had such a blast at both sessions. They don’t live around here, but I am anxious to meet the little girl they’ve welcomed into this world (YES, I am SUPER behind in blogging!!). I’ll quit rambling now and get to the good stuff. Here you have it…Allie + Bryan (+baby!)!
These three kiddos were SO much fun to work with. They each had their own ideas for the session and I loved it! Mom was going to sit this one out, but the kids and I convinced her to get in the frame. Moms…GET IN THE PICTURE!! They’re only little for a short time. You will NEVER regret having those memories. Even if it’s just a shot or two…DO IT!!
I have had the opportunity to photograph this brave, adventurous young lady since she was just nine months old. I can't begin to tell you how amazing it is to watch these little ones grow up. The time is so fleeting and they change SO much from year to year...being able to capture these moments is priceless.
I am admittedly very behind on my blogging, but since I have an all-new, start-from-scratch blog, maybe it's not a bad thing ;-)
Last fall, I was able to photograph the beautiful S family! Not only are they incredibly good-looking, they're also pretty awesome people. <3
