Lifestyle Photograpy: The Hescox Family

I love family/birthday shoots when the parents just let their kiddos be kids. The wacky faces, bursts of energy, and candid moments perfectly capture the current stage in their children’s lives. This little guy made my entire day with this enthusiasm for his photos.

Commercial Photography: Love It LaVintage

This past October on a chilly day, I did a fun commercial shoot that was a collaboration with Love It LaVintage (rentals and gown), Kranich’s Jewelers (the engagement rings we got to use were STUNNING), Peterman’s Florist (flowers), Designs by Kristina (jewelry), Andrea Sirois Hair and Makeup Artist, and a canoe that a good friend let us borrow (thanks Elizabeth and Lucas!). Be sure to check out these businesses and give them some local love and support. And a HUGE shout out and lots of love to our model for the day Kristen Gray for tolerating the cold wind so well.

Love,

Aarika + Mitchell's Omni Bedford Springs Wedding

Aarika and Mitchell’s winter wedding was simple and elegant. The Springs was the perfect setting for their love story. The Christmas decor and hundreds of twinkling lights added an extra touch of magic to their special day. Aarika and Mitchell’s heartfelt wedding was the perfect end to a fabulous 2018 wedding season.

Class of 19: Tyler

This young gentleman was a delight to work with. He was so polite, kind, and was up for just about anything I threw at him. I also loved that he included his longtime girlfriend in his session. They have been together for 4 years and I have to say that they are the real deal.

Anyhoo it was a great shoot. We explored downtown Altoona and the rolling country hills in Roaring Spring. He lucked out and had beautiful golden light and for once, absolutely no rain or grey cloud in the sky. This was definitely one of my favorite senior sessions this year!

Enjoy!

Rachel and Ryan's Trough Creek Engagement Session

Trough Creek is probably my favorite local park. I love how quiet and calm it is with the stream running through it and of course the waterfall. It has all these lovely little trails that lead you on a magical journey through the woods. It’s just so peaceful and a great setting for a beautiful love story.

This session with Rachel and Ryan was amazing because we basically had the park to ourselves which never happens. We got to climb and explore the falls and balancing rock and that one picnic area by the rock face that is always reserved for family picnics. it was wonderful. Rachel and Ryan are such a chill, fun couple and I am anxious to work with the more as we approach their May wedding.

Love,
Susan
