A little vintage, a little modern... a very timeless love (engagement photography)

I was so happy to spend the evening with Erin and James taking their engagement session pictures at the Penn State Arboretum.  They have such a fun playful banter with one another and blatantly enjoyed being as close to one another as possible.
James bravely serves our country flying aircraft for the navy, and will be wearing dress blues for the ceremony.  So he and Erin decided to use part of their engagement session to give a nod to their love of the 20's.  He cleans up pretty good, doesn't he.  It was so much fun to be able to mix the elegant romance of more formal clothing with the modern comfort of everyday wear.  I absolutely love when my couples go outside the 'box', it always ends up being fun.

So without further ado.... James&Erin, Engaged!

A Very Good Reason...

A very good reason for why this blog has been so lacking lately!  And that is the introduction of the newest member of the clan, Mackabrie Elizabeth.
I am so happy to have had the past few months to get ready for, meet, and get to know my little girl.  She will grow so quickly; so I am happy for slower days to soak in her delicate nails, intent gaze, and undeserved love.  With two big brothers, she will never have my undivided attention - but she will have my whole love, as will each of my beautifully growing boys.  It is amazing how love simply grows to encompass them all, if as they grow out of the embrace of my arms reach.
Never fear, I may be smitten with my family, but I am back to work this month.  I am excited to have engagement sessions coming up, consultations for 2013 weddings, and parents of 2013 seniors starting to contact me about Senior Portraits.

But for now, here is baby Mack:
