Doing group photo shoots is an amazing idea that Hailey brought to me! These girls made the hour drive to the stunning gardens at Fran's Fair Garden. This is a prime example of something new I have not tried yet, and something I would definitely do again. Each of these girls brought $25, got some individual photos, and then got some super cute group shots too.
July 4th Senior Photos at Glendale lake with a VW bus WHAT A DREAM. Central PA is one of the most beautiful places for a portrait session. Tons of love for this spot because of how many different looks I get. Shoot here last for at least 2 hours and always have variety. Not to mention, that gorgeous sunset through the trees! And open field shots. The lake photos with rocks, wildflowers, I mean come on, does it get better?! Here's how this went down...First, we start in the tall grassy field. Secondly, as the sun starts to set we follow the glittery goldenness to the open green field. Thirdly, walking to the light filtering through the trees. And then we head to the water, getting our toes wet for the perfect "in the water" shot. Finally, one brave chickadee totally gets in the water and THE END 😀 [...]

In Martinsburg, Pennsylvania, you will find one of my top spots for senior pictures at Piney Creek Greenhouse. In the photos below, you see beautifully curated greenhouse and eclectic spaces. The cutting garden is packed with seasonal color. Because the color is seasonal, it is changing often. And because it is changing so often, you will guaranteed have a unique look for your images. You find stunning scenes at every turn, like hostas, climbing roses, hanging plants, and vibrant set ups that are ideal for photos. As a result, we spend quite a lot of time in the lush curated garden. The Piney Creek pavilion is another favorite spot of mine. And I'm sure you will find it to be a favorite as well - just look at those contrasting blacks and browns with the greenery! Tips for successful senior pictures at Piney Creek Greenhouse: 1. Choose the right [...]
Pennsylvania's premier wedding venue, La Ferme Rouge in Patton, PA, always delivers gorgeous sun-drenched photos! Let me just say, I am beyond thrilled to be this couple's wedding photographer. How crazy beautiful are these people, #amiright ?! What an absolute delight it was to work with this sweet engaged couple and their pup Cyrus. When Madison told me her favorite color was mustard yellow, I knew this couple was a match made in heaven for Lakeside Portraits. The evidence is in the photos. If that lighting, those smiles, and the joy radiating from their souls isn't a picture of pure glory...man, I don't know what is. Enjoy your photos, love birds! ~Ashley [...]
