I have been photographing Erin and her children annually since the kids were born, and every year we have concentrated on getting good expressions and cooperation from the little ones…because, well, they were little, and all of you moms know how THAT goes! Getting them dressed, trying to keep them from squirming too much (or poking a sibling), etc is exhausting. THIS year we knew we were home free, because they are both old enough to cheerfully cooperate, so our attention started to turn to how we could personalize their session. Erin asked me what I thought about using her Dad’s 1950 Ford truck…and of course I thought it would be perfect. And it was. And so were they!
I can’t wait to see what kind of Holiday card Erin chooses to share these beautiful images with her friends and family! Because my collections are based on digital files, she can have her Christmas shopping done in a snap by using them to upload and order prints, mugs, calendars, phone cases, and all kinds of fun gifts.

Perfect time of year to count your blessings and celebrate them with a family portrait that will be cherished for years to come! Even the dog is smiling!
It means so much to me to have clients return to me year after year. I feel so honored to have their complete trust in my work. AND I get to see their children growing up, which is the absolute best part of my job!
Zach is one of the boys in my old neighborhood that I have watched grow up into a strong young man – in a flash. Or at least it seems like that. He’s such a hard worker, and stays busy working at a part-time job and volunteering at our local Fire Department, which he LOVES! Did I mention he is an EMT and an Eagle Scout? Yeah, this kid has got it together. He really wanted to do his senior pictures at his fire department, because its such a huge part of who he is right now and because its likely to stay a big part of his life as the years go by. Congratulations Zach, and I hope you really enjoy your senior year as part of Fort Cherry High School’s class of 2014!
I have photographed Madison many times over the years as part of her family sessions, but I couldn’t WAIT for the day to do her senior portrait session. I knew she would be an absolute dream to photograph…and she was. I don’t usually show this many on the blog, but I couldn’t narrow it down any more than this!
I have been photographing this family every year since…well, since I started my business. I have had the privilege of watching the children grow up through my camera lens, and that is a very special thing for any photographer. I know exactly how much time and energy it takes for Julie to get a session arranged and done, especially with four kids and two working parents – getting a time that works for everyone, clothing that coordinates, coping with bad weather, etc. I know that her family is everything to her, and that these images are so precious to her…and I always want to make sure that I do the best job that I can do for them. Having wonderful people trust you with their memories is a responsibility that I take very seriously, and I try my best to make sure that I give them the best images that I possibly can. It really means a lot to me that my clients return, year after year, especially when I look back and see exactly how fast time flies.

And a few of my favorites from our latest session a few weeks ago:
I last saw Jordan a few years ago when I photographed her older brother David for his senior session. She has grown into SUCH a beautiful young woman! I adored photographing her, because she was so relaxed and laid back. There is just nothing else that shines through my camera’s images like natural beauty, and she provided me with some of my most favorite images ever!
