These are my people:

Classic Emily



Aren’t my roommates pretty? I am lucky to have such photogenic women at my disposal! These were taken for my photography class for the Fashion Photography section.


The B-Man (cousin) one of my best models. He doesn’t flinch when the camera comes out. He does, however, have “sexy” poses, yes he calls his poses sexy–he’s 7. Hilarious and true.


These guys are my former co-workers sons on Thanksgiving day.


At the time Livi (cousin) was 2 but now she is a big bad 3-year-old who is going to school! Did you hear that? She is going to ride the bus, it’s yellow, carry her special backpack with papers and a snack inside and she is going to say “Hi! How are you doing?” to Dan and Brian (cousins) in the hallway, when she sees them. She has big plans and can count way past 10 but thats all she had to do when she was “IT” during Bloody Murder at family dinner.

Children are my favorite subjects to photograph. They are so real and true in front of the camera. I always wonder why adults feel they have to pose whenever a camera is around. Kids make it possible to photograph REAL LIFE. Not that I don’t enjoy a good smile, but I think photographs that capture people as their raw selves is beautiful.

These aren’t my people, but they will do!


For a photojournalism style assignment I drove out to Tait’s Tree Farm (Bellfonte, PA), where my roommates and I got our Christmas tree. I had the opportunity to take shots of the workers on the job. While I was asking this man a question I snapped this photo. To me it screams, cold, rough and hard work and Pennsylvania!


While eating my hot dog on the steps of the Met (do it, it doesn’t get any better than that!) a group of kids part of a group called “Street Singers” performed. When it was time for them to get up and move to their next location the smallest kid took the job of carying the massive keyboard. He managed and I got a great picture.

I took all of these pictures on a Cannon PowerShot A520 but I wish I had a Nikon D40. Someday!

Remember if someone out there wants to pay me to travel around and take photographs I am all for it!!
