Making family portraits involving grandparents is one of our favorite things to do at Pie. Claire first got in touch about family portraits, letting us know this photography session was to be a surprise for her brother-in-law, Brian, who was coming into town with his family (and new baby Ruby!). As extended family, they got to celebrate some sweet moments together during a glorious day at Milbrook Marsh. Enjoy these previews...and look forward to another full feature post soon!

So much love in this extended family!

Pi Delta Psi Banquet - Teasers

Pi Delta Psi Banquet - Teasers

Last night, we had the gift of spending the evening with the brothers of Pi Delta Psi during their end-of-semester banquet. Quite a few alumni returned to celebrate, which made for a great, and truly meaningful time together. I won't say who, but some people were moved to tears by the awesomeness of it all...because truly, it was awesome.

Here are just two of the group shots for now; more to come later!

A group photo with their awesome advisor, Alex Yin.

Collectively, we Pi(e)! 

Congrats, Grads! // Sophia & June

Congrats, Grads! // Sophia & June

We really enjoy capturing senior portraits with friends since much of what will last past college are the friendships and relationships that continue to grow past the academics. Sophia is graduating this Spring, and wanted to include her close friend June, who will graduate next year. We had a lot of fun during the session, moving from location to location; as I got to know them more, it was clear that they are friends who are honest with each other and who fight hard to be there for each other -- through the highs and lows of the upcoming transitions. I trust you will feel the strength they have in their friendship in these portraits :)

More snaps of their friendship will come in the full blog; for now, here are some portraits of Sophia to celebrate her college graduation!


All her beauty, gleaming in the golden light

It's finally Spring here in State College, and Graduation Season is upon us! All over campus, photographers and seniors are bustling with creative energy to capture celebratory memories in their favorite spots. We love our student community here at Penn State, and we love pushing our creative boundaries when it comes to capturing students' personalities and joys!

I met Nancy during my floor-days at Irving's -- she would always come in during my closing shifts to get a sandwich and a mocha for dinner. Through her visits, we became friends and began to hang out outside of work and get to know each other. Nancy struck me immediately as a bright and kind person who is incredibly astute and ready for life. When she contacted me about making Graduation portraits for her and her friends, I knew I wanted to create something lively and colorful for them!

Basking in the afternoon light outside the Pattee/Paterno library, where these beautiful friends spent a lot of their times.

Memories, friendship vibes.

Smiling into the future...

Perfect timing for those pale blossoms!

Nancy is such a natural at these lifestyle looks!

Moment, frozen in time...

We will continue to walk through life together.
