Samantha and Jordan are the sweetest! They braved the cold and fog for a gorgeous engagement session at Long's Park in Lancaster in the fall. And guys - they have a fluffy pet bunny! How cool is that? They're going to make such a beautiful bride and groom at their summer wedding at Bell Mountain Estates!

If you follow me on Instagram or know me in real life, you'll know that I can't resist making updates to our home in the winter slow season. This year we went a bit nuts and made a lot of the updates we said we were going to do... five years ago. :-) Between December and February, we repainted the entire first floor, got all new light fixtures, updated my home office, got a FARM SINK (YASSSS), painted the banister, got new "wood" laminate floors, put in a subway tile backsplash, updated all of our hardware in the kitchen and powder room, installed a shiplap wall in the living room and made general updates to our decor. (Thank you Target, HomeGoods, and The Olde Factory in Hummelstown!) I finally got around to photographing our progress of course with cameos from our cats. It's still a work in progress, but I'm loving it!

I’m not gonna lie, nailing a beautiful sun-soaked portrait of you two snuggled up in a wildflower field or an epic macro ring shot feels AH-MAZING. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg of why I truly love being a photographer. I grew up with a camera constantly in my face. My parents adopted me as a newborn in their late thirties and wanted to make darn sure that every moment of my growing up was immortalized in print, usually ordered in duplicate. (Thanks for that, Mom, now I have billions of photos to store in my house.) My mother was the gifted one with photography, meaning that most photos were of me by myself or me and my dad. Photos of her and I from my younger years are rare, so I treasure the heck out of them.

Lisa and Andy are the type of people who have never met a stranger. I can easily imagine meeting them on a beach somewhere on vacation and becoming fast friends! We bonded over our mutual love of Tattered Flag Brewery in Middletown and even met there to make timeline planning extra fun! ;-)
