Grin Gallery Contest

Oh how I have missed doing shoots that are artistic, creative, wild, and weird.

When I saw that Grin Gallery was holding a competition for local photographers, I knew that this was my opportunity to tap back into that artsy fartsy side. I reached out to my friend/model/makeup artist/hair stylist/amazing human bean Andrea to see if she was up for doing something different. She of course was totally game so we set a day to spitball ideas. The day of our brain storming session she had a fab idea to add in her friend Nikki. And so we met and over drinks and yummy food at the Knick our plan began to emerge.

As we were tossing ideas around from Renaissance styles to fish people, I finally asked how Andrea and Nikki became friends. Their tale is most unusual, but to make a long story short, their friendship spun from a disastrous relationship full of heartache, disloyalty, broken trust, and emotional torment. After hearing their story I knew we had to work with it.

So while these images might be shocking and a bit disturbing, they tell these two ladies tale in a very artistic way. Plus, with Halloween right around the corner, why not find a reason to use fake blood and an anatomical heart.

The first image in this series is the one I submitted to the contest. You can see it on display November 10th and vote for it during the first part of the evening. For more information on the event click here.

Barktoberfest 2018

Another wonderful Barktoberfest is in the books!

Every year the Blair County Dog Park throws this great event to welcome new members. There is great food, amazing prizes, and every year they have vendors that have a lot to offer our four legged friends such as reiki and massages. I had a blast and I think the park had a great turn out!

If you missed out on this event but want to know more about the park, you can find more information via their Facebook Page and Website.

Below are a few of my favorite photos from my day, but if you’d like to see all the photos please click here for the gallery.

Class of 2019: Tori

I LOVE THIS SENIOR SESSION SO SO MUCH!!

And what’s not to love?! We had a beautiful golden light, a vintage bike, fabulous hair, a record player, a flute, glitter, sparklers, and MADONNA (just an album of hers. Sadly Queen Madge was unavailable for the shoot).

Tori slayed her session as you can see from her photos. And a BIG shout out to her mom and step dad for being my road crew carrying props, ladders, and throwing things at their daughter (just sheets of music).

Enjoy these fab photos!

Love,
Susan

PS. If you are senior who still needs his or her photos, or a junior who is planning ahead and you know Tori, you should go talk to her about her session. :)

Kaitlin +Alec's Galitzin, PA Wedding

Kaitlin and Alec are the epitome of couple goals. The way they both look at each other could make even the iciest heart melt.

Their Galitzin wedding was filled with beauty and love. Every guest in attendance was genuinely thrilled for the couple. I have never seen so many people packed into a church for the ceremony. It was so wonderful to see such love and support from friends and family. The reception was a blast. Lots of dancing, laughs, and one adorable cookie-stealing baby!

Kaitlin and Alec I am so thankful that you two have come into my life. It was a gift to be a part of your wedding day. I wish you two nothing but years and years of happiness and adventures.

Love,
Susan
