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.

Quick Wedding Sneak Peak | Wedding Photography Monroe Files Photography DuBois, PA

At last, my love has come along.
My lonely days are over.
And life is like a song....

At last, the skies above are blue.
My heart was wrapped up in clovers.
The night I looked at you...

I found a dream that I could speak to.
A dream that I can call my own.
I found a thrill to press my cheek to.
A thrill that I have never known...

And you smile, you smile.
Oh, and then the spell was cast.
And here we are in Heaven.
For you are mine at last.

Mommy Market & Health Fair | Event Photographer, Monroe Files Photography DuBois, PA

I am super excited to say that I got to participate in the first annual Mommy Market and Health Fair held at DuBois Central Christian School! As you can see from the photos, it was PACKED with goodies to be had! I scored a FAB old wooden highchair and have since given it a face lift. You will see more of the high chair in posts to come =]

For those of you who do not know what a Mommy Market is, it's an indoor yardsale with all items available for purchase geared towards small children. This is a great place to score highchairs, car seats, clothes, walkers, swings and anything else your new little bundle is in need of!

This was just the first half hour of the sale. It went from 9am-2pm. There were 50-50 drawings and many free items given away by the area businesses that participated. You could even grab lunch in between shopping!

A couple of cuties with the DCC Cardinal. Some kids loved Cardinal, some did not. Others were ok from a distance and enjoyed waving, but Mommy PLEASE don't make me walk past him!

My booth!

More of my booth =]

About noon and still hardcore shoppers out sniffing out bargains!

One of MANY businesses that were set up. It was so packed with adults, kids and strollers I couldn't get everyone's photo. Total success and I can't wait for next year!

Hynds Belly | Maternity Photographer Monroe Files Photography DuBois, PA

Carrie's wonderful big sister, Sheila, purchased a belly session as a Christmas gift.
What an awaesome gift! I would have been estatic if someone gifted me a portrait session.
It's the gift that keeps on giving, for generations to enjoy!

I know a lot of pregnant women do not see a benefit to having maternity portraits taken. Why should I?
I'm only feeling HUGE, my face is broken out thanks to these crazy crazy hormones and trying to find something to wear that fits well and isn't too small my belly is hanging out or so big I look a circus a total chore! So standing in front of a camera is about the last thing I want to do!

Really. You reallllly want to know why you should get belly pictures? Because you are only pregnant with that baby once. Because at this moment, here and now, you truly can not grasp just how beautiful, glowing and in shape you really are. Because only a handful of years from now you will wish you had more images to show your child of them growing in your belly. Because having a blurry cell phone image just does not cut it.

I knew going into the growing a baby thing, that I wanted images of my bump. Not just ones taken in a mirror or with my camera held at arms length (you don't realize how SHORT your arms are until you have a big bump!) I did the leg work of getting it set up and I had three bags of clothes, jewelry and shoes to choose from.  And you know what? I had myself so stressed out about it that by the time the session got here I was exhausted! And my husband did not want any part of being in front of the camera. (His attitude towards picture taking is the bane of my existance, still working on him!)

But I did it. I am SO glad I did. I love those images. I can look at them and it takes me back to the excitement, the anticipation, and of course, the aches and pains! =] (Oooo, and the heart burn, ick!)  


The best part is being able to show the photographs to my baby and say, "Look at Mommy's big belly. That's YOU growing inside there!" and seeing the look of pure awe at something so hard for them to grasp.

And you know after they finally wrap their little heads around a baby growing in Mom's belly,
they will follow it up with some super cute giggles!!
