Ken & Danielle - Married!

It was a beautiful day for a wedding.  I woke up SO ready for this day. I had worked with Ken & Danielle before and they just make my job so, so easy. They had a sweet ceremony at their Catholic Church surrounded by friends and family and ending with a bubbly exit to their limo. Next we headed to the Hershey Country Club (one of my favorite places to shoot!) where we snagged some canvas-worthy bridal party shots on the golf course. The new Mr. and Mrs. Martin and I slipped away to the Hershey Mansion for some intimate portraits on the famous grounds. Lastly, their reception -- this group was SO much fun. Even Danielle and her dad's slow dance turned into a crazy rockstar dance off for the whole crowd to join in.  I could go on for days about this pair. There is just something about the way they look at each other and the way they are always belly-laughing when they're together. Enjoy some favorites from their beautiful day xoxox

Madison - 2016 Senior

This was my second time working with Madison. She came to her session with her own ideas and style and I loved every second of it. For someone who aspires to be a model, Madison is well on her way. She even stepped out in the middle of summer in fur, walked barefoot in a rocky creek and painted her feet - all for the sake of an awesome session. I also pulled my grandparent's chair out of storage for her session (and before anyone asks, NO it is no longer available!!  Cool chair but also 23984092384 lbs!!) Enjoy my favorites!

Jessie - 2016 Senior

A few years ago I had the privilege of shooting Jessie's older brother's senior portraits and now it's her turn. I've been waiting patiently for Jessie to become a senior because I LOVE her style.  We did a few studio shots and then headed to a private residence for the rest of the session. Weather was a little iffy for Jessie's session but the sun would peak out from behind the clouds at the perfect times (likeeee how about these shots of her in the woods with her plaid shirt?!). I love when a girl's beautiful personality can shine through during her session and it sure did for Jessie's. Thanks for being so awesome, Jessie ... you are fierce!!! Enjoy some favs!

Paige - 2016 Senior

Believe it or not, Paige is a 2016 high school senior, not a runway model. Hard to believe, isn't it?  Paige is drop dead gorgeous from the inside out.  She's the kind of girl I can ask to do anything for her session (like climb around on rocks in a dress or go out on a rickety dock) and she would oblige with a smile on her face.  It was too much fun hanging out with her. I must say, her floppy hat shots are a highlight of my summer.  Thanks for being so great, Paige! Enjoy my favs!

Makenna - 2016 Senior

Okay, so I went a little crazy with this blogpost. This girl had the cutest style and we were able to achieve several different looks. Three things made this session awesome : water, golden hour, belly laughs.  Makenna has the best natural smile so I was constantly telling her to make herself laugh :D (awkwarddddd, but she made it happen!)  The lighting was pretty inconsistent during her session but then the sun went down and we had the prettiesttt glowing light to end on a good note. Thanks for being so much fun, Makenna! Enjoy some favorites. 

Nick - 2016 Senior

I hope you guys like seniors because we are dead in the middle of senior season! I love Nick's style. Everything from the clothes he wears to the way he carries himself is very unique & interesting.  His session was very eclectic from posing with old buildings with neat textures to hanging out in a baseball field during golden hour.  I managed to "narrow his gallery down" to 100 pictures -- so I think that speaks for how great this session was.  Enjoy some favs!

Chelsea - 2016 Senior Model

I had SO much fun with Chelsea! What was supposed to be a half of her senior session turned into a full fledged adventure through the town of Mechanicsburg. She absolutely ROCKED it. I love a girl who can pull off both a serious face & a gorgeous smile--- and it sure helps that she is the sweetest person!  I cannot wait to do the second half of her session. Enjoy a few favorites.

Gordon - 2016 Senior

The last thing any senior guy wants to do is hang out and cheese for me.  Thankfully, Gordon is a great guy and not only dealt with my crazy posing but even smiled at my horrible jokes.  Gordon's mom has been my hairdresser for literally my whole life so it was so cool to work with the "little boy" I would see in snapshots hanging on her mirror every time I got hair cut growing up. He's far from that little boy now - just from spending two hours with him I know that Gordon is highly intelligent, passionate & mature for his age. I can't wait to see what he does with his life! Enjoy some favs.

Madison - 2016 Senior Model

Madison is a gorgeous 2016 Senior from Spring Grove Area High School. The girl. NEEDS. to model. Madison received a free Best Friend Mini Session for representing Jessica Snider Photography and it was more fun than it was work.  Madison & her best friend Autumn had me laughing their whole session and we ended up with a giant gallery from our short time together. I cannot wait to do Madison's full senior session -- I already know it's going to be epic. :)  Enjoy some favorites of mine!
