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.

Strait Wedding | Wedding Photographer Monroe Files Photography Northern Cambria, PA

The Strait wedding was truly an experience for me.

I was in the minority. And this minority has nothing to do with race,
religion, or sexual preference.

I was in the minority because I could hear and did not
know how to use sign language.

I felt so blessed to share such a momentous day for a very special couple.
They met at a school for the deaf and fell in love. The absolute joy
on the faces of their family and friends that day was contagious!

Hunter | Newborn Photographer, Monroe Files Photography Sligo, Pa

Baby Hunter is the MOST adorable son of Sam, a friend from college.

Hunter the perfect button nose and squishy baby lips!

This is what I did with all of my time while on maternity leave...stop and stare.

Totally in awe and wonderment...110% in LOVE!

That's a proud furkid if I ever saw one! =]

And did I mention Hunter has the coooooootest Charlie Brown swirl?!?!

DAHS Kayla | Portrait Photographer Monroe Files Photography DuBois, PA

Kayla is a very good friend of my cousin Jenna.

Kayla, Lindsay and Jenna are all in 4-H together...

...and they all show cows for the fair off of Jenna's farm.

So it was only fitting that they all got their senior pictures taken at the farm! =]

Kayla's little brother tagged along and he was a bit jealous
that his sister got to sit in the driver's seat!

Besides showing cows and being involved in 4-H, Kayla is also a part
of the DAHS Rifle team.

She surprised the heck outta me! I did not expect a total
model to love shooting a gun!

Proud to offer Beloved imagery to the greater DuBois area!!

Beloved is an emerging photographic genre centered on the creation of meaning-rich portraits that express the individual, beautiful personality each person is born with, creating an opportunity to celebrate the relationships that fill our lives with joy and purpose.

The Photogenic Technique of Beloved gives photographers a clear and simple way to move past the “camera smile”‘ to easily capture the authentic, photogenic expressions and the naturally beautiful sides of our personality we share with our loved ones.

The Beloved Collective serves and supports the amazing community of photographers who are integrating Beloved and Photogenic Technique into their portrait sessions through products, online training courses and an annual conference.

In addition to launching a new website the Beloved Collective has just released the first Family Field Guide, which brings the power of Photogenic Technique to the fields of family & children photography.

{ Come and see for yourself }

I am SOOOO excited to offer this experience to the greater DuBois area! It's such an amazing adventure and even more so to share it with those you love dearly. The Beloved Experience is for everyone, but I highly recommend it to couples who have been together 5 years or more. Most couples I know do not get professional images taken after they wed. They may get images taken as children come into the picture but they never truly take the time to celebrate each other. Life is so busy that often times we get into a routine of the same old, same old and roll into bed exhausted just to do it all over again tomorrow. As we try to squeeze out every second of the day, we forget to take a moment to connect with our loved ones. I'm offering you the chance to reconnect and celebrate your unique love language and I am also here to say, it's the best time you will spend squeezing every second out of. =] Here are just two images from my Beloved couples. More can be seen here.
