Naomi + Kaitlin :: Old Stoudtburg Village

Last week, I finally made it to Stoudtburg Village to capture some photos of a wonderful family. My assistants (because Suzanne wasn’t and isn’t here) were Kaitlin and my sister, Naomi.

See, the reason I asked Kaitlin to come with me is because she and I both enjoy photography and we both wanted to go to Stoudtburg Village for a while. So it worked out perfect. And a bonus is that I also got to take pictures of them, tooSo if you scroll down an inch or two, you’ll find the pictures I took of them.

Meet Kaitlin…
And Naomi…
What can I say? I have a beautiful sister 🙂
I don’t know what she was doing here… practicing taking a selfie?
very likely.
Or giving someone a thumbs up?
But nobody was in sight in the direction she was looking.
I should ask her…
And since a fellow photographer was there, I had to get pictures taken of me too.
Thanks Kait!

Have a wonderful rest-of-the-week, people!

Autumn and Family

This past Sunday our family went up to Middle Creek wildlife center. We love going to this place every fall because it is an awesome place to go hiking and the fall colors and leaves are just glorious.

So, I thought I would share some of the pictures we took. Enjoy!!

Playing in all the leaves that were there was so much fun for us all, as we don’t have many leaves here at our place… october 093

Hello again! It’s been a little while since I blogged….

A couple weeks ago we went on a family vacation to Virginia and the Creation Museum in Kentucky. We had been wanting to take a trip to the Creation Museum for a while. This was the longest tip we have ever done all together as a family.  We had originally been planning to visit Faith Mission on our way down, but those plans fell through when my little brother Caleb got the chicken pox a couple days before we left. But then we got to enjoy the view from Skyline Drive. We had such a wonderful time together.

And now here are some of the pictures. I will kinda let them speak for themselves.

To Maryland…

The other day, we went down to Maryland to pick up a dog. We saw a lot of gorgeous scenery on the way and stopped at a couple places to enjoy it and take photos. So here are just some of those pictures…IMG_1530One place we stopped was at a rest stop on the top of a mountain and we were able to look down into the valley!! It was a beautiful sight. 🙂
