I am honored and thrilled to photograph the maternity session of my friend, Leslie, and her miraculous pregnancy. She was told she could never have children without medical help. And here she is. Pregnant almost full-term, with a healthy, growing baby. No medical help. Just God doing His thing. And I get to capture the miracle through photos, to hold them as a memorial of God's grace and love. This is when taking photos goes beyond being just my job and crosses over into a realm of documenting the impossible. This is when I get to create reminders of the miraculous. This makes my job so much cooler.

It was an honor and a privilege this past Memorial Day to photograph the wedding of Anna, the beautiful bride, and Jesse, a United States Marine. The weather was truly divine. Seriously, it could not have been a more gorgeous day to celebrate a wedding and a commitment. Once again, I was blessed to be the person to capture the moments and some of the essence of two people in love. Congrats Anna and Jesse. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it.

I have had the privilege of following Jenn and Pete with my camera for each of their major events for the last 3 years. I have captured wedding day, pregnancy, newborn, and now first birthday photos. Such a joy to see a family begin and grow together over time. Happy birthday Adrianna! Blessings to you on your birthday and throughout your life!

It was a cold, wintry day in Mifflintown (Mifflintown? Who knew?) in a beautiful, rustic barn. Morghan was dressed in her pressed, white dress, which was designed by herself and made by her father. Ben was eagerly waiting to wed his beautiful and vibrant bride in a ceremony which was officiated by her father. Yep, her dad made her dress. Yep, her dad walked her down the aisle. Yep, her dad officiated the ceremony of his eldest daughter. It was a sincere and tender ceremony. The reception was perfect down to every detail. Handmade bouquets of newspaper flowers. Centerpieces of tall, slender branches adorned with paper ornaments. Antique china dinnerware laying on each table. Bread bowls that had been stacked neatly in old suitcases, waiting patiently to be filled with delicious homemade soups. And the crowd was no snooze. The dancing was non-stop. I saw moves on those barn-wood beams that I don't think I've ever seen before. It was fun. I hope these images have done it justice. Congrats Morghan and Ben. Cheers to the rest of your lives together!
