Tim, Caroline & Callan

I am always so honored whenever a close friend asks me to photograph them. I've known Tim and Caroline forever, so I was over the moon when they asked me to take pictures of the new addition to their family: 2-month-old Callan James.

They hadn't gotten much sleep the night before we met up (and we mostly just wanted to spend time together), so we kept the photoshoot casual with a quick stroll around their current neighborhood, Newtown, and a few photos by the window in the nursery. It was such a joy to finally meet Callan and see what a beautiful child Caroline and Tim brought into the world.  

Thanks again to Tim and Caroline for asking me to be a part of this. Enjoy the photos, and check out those bright blue eyes on their baby boy!

Film Scans - July 2017

Just a quick post to share some film I shot in July. First set is from a trip to Promised Land with friends, second set is from a Sunday afternoon tour of Manchester: a quant, historic neighborhood in Pittsburgh's North Side.

Shot on a Nikon FM10 / Kodak Portra 400

Thanks for looking!

If you're from Pittsburgh and haven't ever strolled around the streets of Manchester, you're missing out. This neighborhood is super unique and filled with tons of architectural gems. Thank you to the Manchester Historic Society for organizing the tour!

Winter at Niagara Falls

Last weekend Jake and I decided to take a spontaneous trip to see Niagara Falls and get away from Pittsburgh for the weekend. Some (most) people called us crazy for visiting Canada on what was arguably the coldest weekend yet this winter, but we were determined to see the falls in all of their icy, snow-covered glory.

Needless to say, they didn't disappoint. The falls were just as jaw-dropping as I thought they would be, plus the winter weather meant there were no lines and barely any tourists to push our way through (bonus!). We especially loved doing the journey behind the falls, where you could explore the tunnels behind the falls and see all of the foliage covered in layers of ice, as well as the freezing water dropping down in front of us.

Based on many recommendations from friends and family, we decided to stay the night at a B&B about 30 minutes north in Niagara-on-the-Lake. If you're ever looking for a place to stay up there, I couldn't recommend our B&B more. The Queen Regent is a beautiful old heritage home that has been lovingly remodeled by its owners, Amanda and Brandon, who live on the lower levels of the home with their family. Amanda was so kind and helpful - we visited both the restaurant and winery that she recommended to us and had a wonderful stay overall (she also provided us with a killer homemade breakfast buffet the next morning). Our room was beautiful, clean and very comfortable - perfect for a place to warm up after walking around town all evening!

NOTL and Niagara Falls were both so much fun to experience, and we really enjoyed our overnight getaway. I had some fun taking photos around the falls and at our B&B, so I decided to share them below. Cheers!
