It’s been a LONG time since I have blogged….whew…might need to do a recap of all of the sessions I missed blogging about!

Last night it was FINALLY warm enough to shoot outside and I was lucky to get this darling little girl to work with. She was a perfect little model.

Enjoy Mom and Dad!

Check out these three cuties! As the session unfolded it was so obvious to me that these big brothers really loved their baby sis. It really made me smile watching how protective they were of her.

Mom’s message to me after the session made me cry…I love making people happy.

These three have been some of my favorite kids to shoot. It’s always an honor to have a family come back to you time and time again. Try not to squeal when you see this baby…she is super adorable.
PS…saving the group shots for the Christmas card! South Hills Mt. Lebanon Photographericon smile

Today I woke my kids up at 6:00 AM to watch the sun rise. This is definitely not common in my house (we are usually still sleeping until AT LEAST 8:30/9:00 AM most days!) We are having a great time all together on vacation this week (nap time right now).

As we watched the sun rise on this beautiful day I felt so blessed. God is good.

Tonight I had the pleasure of photographing another 2013 graduate. She was so unassuming and sweet. I could tell just from talking to her over the past few weeks that she is super down to earth and very sure of herself. I love her pictures because they are so “her”–she’s not trying to be anything but who she is. I love that. PS…you totally DO remind me of Keira Knightley. I think you have the exact same smile.

I met these beautiful people tonight for the first time and I loved them from the start. There was so much adoration between them it was easy to capture and doing their session made me want to do a session with my hubby STAT! This photography session was a gift from this man to his wife after their wedding three years ago to give them the engagement session they never had. I think it was clear that they both deeply love one another and I was so happy to meet them. I hope these pictures reflect how smitten they are. I truly hope I will get to be a part of capturing their memories for years to come.

Enjoy your photos…
