As some of you know-if you follow me on instagram and facebook I recently set up an in-home studio for more variety in my pictures and to stretch myself professionally. Well, due to Covid-19 this has been put more on the back burner due to safety and being indoors. That being said, it’s been fun […]

Sadie’s Studio Session-Arthritis Awareness

Heidee and Cody got married on October 31st, 2020 at Harmony Gardens in North-East Pennsylvania. This post is a bit of a special one for me. I work in an Emergency Department in Allentown and Heidee and Cody also work there as well. They started dating before or soon after I started working there while […]

I seriously suck so bad at this whole blogging thing and I chronically say “I’m going to do better.” I guess only time will tell. Okay I’ll cut to the chase because have you ever looked up a recipe online and it takes a solid minute to get the the actual ingredient list? Like I […]

So apparently I haven’t posted a blog post since October… Oops. What can I say, I am very busy! Between working full-time as a nurse in an ER, getting my undergrad, running a business and a home, I’m a little stretched. All good things and I love each outlet don’t get me wrong. It’s just […]

Second Mountain Sunflowers Orwigsburg PA

Wow friends, it has been awhile since I posted a blog post. TBH I think I say that every time I write a post but this time-its justified. There’s something about the slowness of September that just motivates me to do the things I’ve been putting off. Anyone else? A few weeks ago I had […]

Easton Sunflowers and Cake

Well, I have been absolutely dying to take pictures of things other than myself (self-portraits) and my plants. Y’all it’s been a hot minute since I was able to take pictures of actual people so when I say it made my heart happy, that’s an understatement! I’m sure if you’ve been around for awhile you’ve […]
