bethany & tommy – engaged

October 28, 2008

Bethany and Tommy just got engaged about a week ago at Boiling Springs Lake. So they wanted to have their engagement photos taken their while it still looked the same. The leaves were gorgeous. I love the fall colors in these photos. I have know Bethany for a long time. I graduated from high school with her older sister and we used to swim on the swim team together. She is living in Washington, D.C. right now. She has the coolest job. She is Laura Bush’s (as in the First Lady) personal assistant.




family of four

October 27, 2008

It was a nice change of pace to photograph this family of four yesterday. The majority of my clients are small children and families with small children. It was fun to see older kids interacting with their family and having fun together. Mom is the director at Reese’s preschool.   



one year older

I photographed this little girl last fall. She was one of my first clients. We had fun running around this morning, although she really wanted to play and not take pictures. 


I love her face here. dsc_8049ed.jpg

 I asked her to get one of her favorite books and this is what she picked.  dsc_8170ed.jpg

Earlier today I met up with this family in Harrisburg. They are in town for the weekend visiting family (they live in Virginia). 

I love the color of the door with her sweater.   dsc_7434ed.jpg



 She is signing “more” here because she wanted mom and dad to keep swinging her.  dsc_7489ed.jpg 

I love this family picture. It was dad’s idea to put her on his shoulders. I love that she is pulling on his ears.dsc_7737ed.jpg

Finn’s newest obsession is a toss-up between Thomas the Train and Cars. Today it was Cars. I decided to take him out to try and get some photos of him. He had been carrying around Lightning McQueen all morning and I hoped maybe that would be the key to making him cooperate. Guess what – it worked. I don’t even mind that it’s in the pictures but that is one of his favorite things right now.


I know I am completely biased, but seriously – could he be any cuter????

These little girls are twins. I love these two photos of them together. 



featured photographer…

October 20, 2008

Check out this link. I am the featured photographer on Blogs of Photographers. I am honored to be featured here, since there have been many talented photographers featured before me. 

 If you don’t click the link, here is what it says…

Jen Baltgalvis works in the central PA area, and has a fun, fresh and commerical feel to her work on her blog that I know you will enjoy. Jen is really talented in many areas of photography, from babies to seniors to weddings, and I really enjoy the mix on her blog of sessions and her own personal family photos-I think this gives clients a nice glimpse into who we are as photographers as well as showing that we value photos of our own family. The top post about paying it forward between photographers families is brilliant, and I would love to see more of that go on! All too often we photographers are missing from the family photos. We should all try to be involved in this great plan, and pay it forward to another photographer, or swap free sessions. :)
