For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.

A rekindling experience of love through imagery.

Striegel Engagement | Engagement Photographer, Monroe Files Photography DuBois, PA

Still playing catch up...I'm trying to get all my blog posts up as June is going to be RIDICULOUSLY busy!! Three weddings, a 3 day yard sale, a certain little girl's FIRST birthday...and tons tons more!
So if I disappear, don't say you weren't warned!

Can I just say that I LOVE my repeat clients! I love that I get to share in the joy of each milestone in
their life. What other job gives you such an awesome privilege?? 

I met Alanna two years ago (yikes! It has REALLY been two years?!) asking about building her portfolio.
Fast forward a year later and Alanna is making her journey through her senior year.

Guess what? This amazing young woman is getting ready to walk the aisle!
May I just say that Cody is SUCH a gentleman and Alanna is one very lucky lady!!

I always say it takes a very special person to love someone in the military.

Did I mention it was extremely cold?? (AGAIN!)

One of the perks of retail trying to get the most money out of Holidays...
Christmas was barely over and I already found heart shaped candies!

*Insert heart melt here*

I love everything about this. The lights just make it feel magical!

Alanna, I am so honored to share in so many special moments in your life!
I can't wait for August to get here so I can see you two off!
So excited!

Ok, I am SERIOUSLY in disbelief that Jessie and Cory are tying the knot in what...3 WEEKS?!
Where has the time gone!?! I feel like it was only a handful of days ago that we were out FREEZING
our tookuses off (!!) doing their engagement session. In fact, it was so cold the first time
that we went out for a second!

How pretty are their eyes? Oh the cute babies they will have!
(Some day!!)

RAWRRR!!! LOVE IT! Cold?'s HOT in here!

We were REALLY hoping it would be snowing for us. That it was not.
But, we got a huge gust of wind and it was knocking the snow off the trees!
This was a spur of the moment as the lighting was just right and then the wind blew
I said, "Hurry up! RUN!!"

And it was totally worth it =]

Love me some natural framing! And how short Jessie is !

Congratulations to you both! I am ready for your big day! I can't believe
it's coming so soon! Hopefully it is not snowing =]

Who doesn't love Ho Ho's??

Look how content she is in the flower pot!
I made the flower headband, not just a photographer...I'm crafty too!

All babies are angels sent from above, precious!

Shh...she's a tired girl (and growing too!)

And my obsession with baby feet continues... =]

I love this photo because BOTH Dad and Mom are on the horn tooting their good news!!

In my daughter's eyes I can see the future
A reflection of who I am and what will be
(Yes, that's a ton of vernex on her sweet forehead!)

We had to have a few photos with their favorite photographer!
I'm still amazed at how fast she got here!

their journey through the teen years!

Ooh sweet sweet baby

She's a perfect turkey baby and I am one lucky lady to have
documented the beginning of her life's story.
You will forever hold a special place in my heart lil Abbie!

Friendship | Baby Photographer Monroe Files Photography DuBois, PA

 A little mid-week update instead of Sunday-Monday. I was busy visiting a boutique studio on Monday (I was in HEAVEN!!) and I'm finally getting caught up on sleep and the craziness of being out of town.

Snoopy, Snoopy, Lily, Snoopy, Snoopy...nothing like playing a game of "Dog, Dog, BABY!"

To all you Momma's out there... | Monroe Files Photography DuBois, PA

Happy Mother's Day!!

Circa 1990

“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.” ~ Washington Irving

Circa 2010

There's nothing better than being a mom...until you become a Grammy (so I'm told!) =]
