Baby R, Cochranville, PA

ImageI met this sweet little guy at just 5 days old last weekend. His mom and I were a little shocked at how wide awake and alert he was in the beginning- and I got some great eyes-wide-open shots. As you can see, he got tired, and then the fun began. I saved the ones I think mom may want to use for announcements for her to see…but these are some of my favorites. Enjoy your preview, J family- you were great!!



That one was for Dad…


The Catch-Up blog…four months in four minutes

Imagine my surprise when I went to post a newborn preview last night and couldn’t get into my own blog because I forgot my password…and then the greater surprise when I looked back and realized I haven’t blogged anything since OCTOBER. Wow- I’ve been slacking in the blog department and taking the easy way out with previewing. It’s like I have another job or something….So here’s a recap of some of my favorites from the past few months.

In October, my little guy turned 2. The cake didn’t have a chance.Image

Later that week, I photographed the S Family at Marsh Creek State Park. These “kids” are older and I hadn’t realized how much more cooperative adults are to photograph than little ones. These brothers were more than willing to smile and wander all over the park with their parents. We had a gorgeous fall afternoon and the beautiful colors of the season to work with.

The same weekend (I guess that was a really busy one…) I also photographed my niece and nephews at Longwood Gardens on another beautiful fall afternoon- I really lucked out with the weather on some of these. ImageImageImageImageImage

















The following weekend my brother got married…and I am very ashamed to say I took 4 pictures the entire time, none of which deserves being posted here. In my defense, I was wearing a long dress and chasing the flower girl and the ring bearer for the majority of the event…Halloween and a move followed…







…and then another session at Longwood with sweet little M and her parents- I had photographed her over the summer with her cousin and can’t believe how much she has grown in just that short time. She is such a little ham!ImageImageImageImage











On to my newest little niece, born just two weeks before Thanksgiving- meet little baby S… and her proud big brother R-














December began with two families at Longwood (I work with both these lovely mammas and they were accommodating enough to let me do two sessions at one time;) It worked out well and we got some great shots of L (does he look familiar?), B and F. Love the red jacket on this adorable little girl!ImageImageImageImageImage


                                                                                                                                                                   The sessions that followed involved lots of whining on my part, because I was attempting the Christmas Card photos for my own children. Note to self…it’s never easy with your own kids. My daughter sees me looking in her direction with a camera and automatically turns goofy. My furry kid cooperated at TinneyHoliday083least.   A few days later it snowed, and I finally got a shot I loved…


My final session of the year was an engagement session at Longwood, with a very sweet couple getting married this summer…and boy, were they troopers. It was COLD. Like can-barely-feel-your-fingers-except-for-searing-pain-cold. And they had to look nice. I, however, was doing my best to look like the kid in A Christmas Story with all the layers.  Here are some of my favorites from that day…
