Bev & Abe’s Sneak Peek {Newville, Pa} Maternity Photographer

Today was a beautiful day and I was lucky enough to hang out with this hysterical couple.  They are expecting their first child in only a couple of weeks!!! All of the photos were taken inside their house and in their backyard… Pretty jealous of the view they have.  They might find me one day in their backyard just hanging out… it was so peaceful!

Like I said… I’m jealous of their backyard….


Love this shot of the glowing mama-to-be…


Mom has a “thing” for converse shoes… so of course baby has her first pair too!




Congratulations guys!  Can’t wait until Gwendolyn arrives!

Genesis IS the Very Hungry Caterpillar

I’m not one for enjoying planning events… (Just ask my mother, who pretty much planned my whole wedding).  I’m not sure if it is my attention span that is similar to a two year old’s or what… So surprisingly,  I really got into planning my daughter’s “Hungry Caterpillar” birthday party!

One idea I had was to “remake” the Hungry Caterpillar book and make it a picture book of Genesis.  It took a lot of planning (from figuring out what outfits to wear, to the backdrop to use, to keeping Genesis interested in this long photo shoot, to designing the actual pages of the book).

Here is a sneak peek inside her book:

I’m convinced that if we had our wedding themed in The Very Hungry Caterpillar  I would have been more productive in the planning!

Genesis turns one!

My daughter loves to be read to.  She especially loves “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” book.  So it only made sense to have a hungry caterpillar themed party.  Here are pics from her smash cake session.  The cake was so beautifully done that it was almost painful to have Genesis tear into it. 

Sweet Sommertime Cakes in Milroy, Pa did the cake.  You can find her on facebook at
