Road Tripping

My family doesn't get away much.  Having a slew of animals and crazy busy schedules, we really can't up and go on a trip. However, we got invited to go and meet up with some friend in Lancaster, PA, so off we went with out a care in the world.  (Not really, but talking about everything that goes into trying to leave is pretty depressing.)

Capture the Moment

As I look back over the past few months I realize just how much I've changed since the beginning of 2015. The first two weeks of the year were just an absolute whirlwind of emotion, memories and heartache. Just four days into the new year, I lost my grandmother. It wasn't sudden, but it left me reeling emotionally. I'd never lost anyone that I was that close to before and it gave me a whole new perspective on life.

Portrait Session: Whitney

Now that the snow is finally gone, hopefully to stay this time, it's been amazing to get out of the house and enjoy taking pictures. My cousin is also a huge photography nut and we've been planning to go do a photo shoot together. This weekend we finally got out and do some shooting. 

365 Challenge: Day 100 - Who Doesn't Love a Red Door

Today is the 100th day of the 356 Challenge. Whoop, whoop! Let's a small party to celebrate.

I found this great red door while I was out scouting locations. I'm a sucker for red doors and brick walls.

365 Challenge: Day 98 - What's This White Stuff?

After all of the snow melting, we had a sudden pop-up snow squall which was just enough to cover the grass again and to annoy the robins who thought that it was spring.

Portrait Session: Ariana

I was thrilled to be able to do a portrait session with one of my absolute best friends. Ariana is smart, kind, an absolute blast to visit with and not to mention, ridiculously photogenic.

365 Challenge: Day 97 - A Cat Called "George"

This is George. He's kind of my new friend. He was hanging around and being extremely friendly while I was doing a photo shoot, so of course,  that means that he's fair game for becoming a model himself.

Portrait Session Sneak Peek: Matthew + Day 96

Yes, this is my younger brother. Yes, I do follow him around with a camera. Yes, it's usually against his will. Is that going to stop me from doing it? No, not likely.  You see, when you have an extremely photogenic model who's right there, at your disposal, 24/7 and all you have to do is bribe him with promises of cookies, you're not likely to want to give up that arrangement, now are you?

Yes, he was pretending to be "Pop-Eye." No, I couldn't begin to tell you why.

Hey, look at all that (dead, but who cares) GRASS! Spring is coming! Spring is coming!

365 Challenge: Day 93 - Friends and Snowballs

This is my wonderful friend Maddie. We go waaaaaay back. Like back in the day when neither one of us could hit the 5 foot mark. But we both did, eventually... Though not by much. Maddie is just awesomeness. I love to being able to hang out with her and I'm pretty much always guaranteed that she'll send me laughing to the point of tears.

365 Challenge: Day 92

Yes, I am lame enough to join the ranks of people who don't know what else to take pictures of so --CAR LOGO. But hey, I'm back on schedule!

The Crazy One About a Bird..... + 365: Day 91

I'm not one for high adventure,  I'm just not that type of person. I like quiet. I like to run. I'm not a fan of unpredictability. I'm also not a fan of being attacked without reason and Disney Princesses give a total misrepresentation of life. 

Okay, none of those things are seemingly related. But let me back up and start all over again.

365 Challenge: Day 90

This is my cat.... This is the first really decent picture I've been able to get of Tabby in a LONG time. Normally she ends up looking either slightly demonic or like Scar from the Lion King. She's extremely friendly, but she's completely un-photogenic.
