Happy Holidays!

I hope your holidays have been wonderful! 

If you are looking for something interesting to see, along with all of the other holiday activities offered at Tunkhannock's Dietrich Theater, there is also a beautiful, interactive holiday display that is delightful for children and adults alike.  

This display was designed and created by Stephen Hendrickson, who is the production designer for the television show, "The Good Wife."  My photographs of the display were featured in an article which ran on the front page of the Lifestyle Section of the Scranton Times-Tribune. 

You can read the article here.

Here are some of the detail shots of the display, "On Christmas Eve, Who Let The Monkeys In?"

If you are in the Tunkhannock area, and get a chance, stop in at the Dietrich and take a look. 

Have a Happy New Year!

How Do You Spell Adorable?


I recently had the pleasure of photographing this sweet little one-year-old and her family.  Just look at those beautiful blue eyes!

We postponed this session hoping for warmer weather, and I was glad we did!  I knew her parents wanted some outdoor portraits in addition to the indoor ones, and I learned long ago that it's much easier to keep a toddler happy when they're not shivering!  We ended up with a gorgeous day that was absolutely worth waiting for.

New Beginnings

I have not posted here in a L-O-O-O-NG time.  I don't think I've painted since my last post.  My boys keep me running -- all of them, including my husband! 

I have not lost my creative spirit, however!  Lucky for me, I still have photography, and that has really blossomed in the last year.  I've continued to photograph all kinds of things that inspire me, but have found myself doing some portrait work, and have found that to be inspiring as well!

The portrait work was kind of accidental...sort of.  I've always loved capturing kids and families with my camera.  I've always found myself striving to push my technical limits in order to create better portraits.  I had decided I'd like to make it my career path as my kids got older, but did not have a definite time frame in mind. 

Then, last summer, a friend of mine wanted a portrait done of her children with all their cousins.  I am delighted to say that I have been getting calls through word of mouth ever since!  It has been so much fun!

Here are a couple photographs from the session that got me started: 

I am so grateful to my friend for giving me the push that got me started moving down this path...

...and I'm sure I'll find time to paint again eventually!
