I am Chandler Bing.

My 14 year old and I are binge-watching Friends on Netflix.  The other night was the episode where Chandler and Monica were attempting to get their engagement portraits taken.  As I was sitting there bonding with my teen I realized something about myself.



Many of you probably don’t know that my major in college was mass communications with an emphasis on journalism.  I was the editor of my high school paper.  I never met an English class I didn’t love.  I had MAD writing skills!!  Then I attempted blogging.  (Here is my ridiculous first attempt at blogging.)  And much like Chandler, who loses all ability to smile when he is in front of a camera, I lose all ability to write creatively when I sit down to blog.  Who knew?!?

Currently, I am sitting in the faculty room at my children’s school where I volunteer on Fridays waiting on the copier to finish a massive job.  I was bored so I decided to give the old pen (Bright green!  Go, Donegal!) and paper (the backside of a copying mistake pulled form the recycling bin) a try.  I am not sure it is going any better than when I type.


So, why blog, you ask?  As a photographer it is my goal to let my work tell the story, right?  A picture is worth a thousand words and all that jazz.  Well, research tells me this blogging thing is a necessity in building my business.  I will spare you the very boring details.  But, here I am (again)…..blogging….and, let’s be honest, not terribly well.  But guess what?!?  Business is growing.  So, I will continue along with my Chandler Bing-like writing skills and hope that you all stop by once in a while to at least take a look at all the pretty pictures 🙂

By the way, here are two of my friends that are the supermodels of blogging:  Jessica Coup and Susan Heydt.  If my blog hasn’t put you to sleep you should definitely check them out!  You won’t be sorry.

Valerie :: Senior Photography, Mount Joy

I was first contacted to do Val’s older sister’s senior portraits a few years back by her mother.  Though their mother was a friend of mine, I knew nothing about “the girls” until I met them for Lizzie’s session.  At that time Val was just tagging along for moral and fashion support.  She was quiet and just kind of hung back and let Lizzie do her thing.  I was once again shocked at how quickly time flies by when Kelli contacted me to do Val’s senior portraits.  She couldn’t be a senior already!  When she showed up she had grown several inches and matured so much since I had last seen her.  She was outgoing and friendly.  She told me that she is taking a year off between high school and college to do mission work.  When I asked if she was joining the program with friends she said it was something she was doing on her own.  So brave at such a young age.  She was headed to her interview right from her portrait session.  I really love when I meet a senior and by the end of the session I know without a doubt that he or she is going to make a huge impact on the world.  This was one of those times 🙂Senior Portrait, Mount Joy Senior Portrait, Mount Joy Senior Portrait, Mount Joy Senior Portrait, Mount Joy Senior Portrait, Mount Joy Senior Portrait, Mount Joy Senior Portrait, Mount Joy Senior Portrait, Mount Joyeri
