knitting…Elaine Gates Central PA Family Photographer

01.16.09 My Kids

ive been knitting alot lately, as one of my new years resolutions i am trying to be more “well rounded” and not be so obsessive compulsive… it probably wont work, its just my personality, but i do feel better know that i am knitting more!

I have so much yarn that needs to be knitted, but i want to finish all the projects, i have started and never finished… as an effort to finish them, i finished 2 scarfs

This one, my mom wanted, she picked the yarn out and i knit it for her… pretty basic…


and this one, i just needed to finish, it was a kit i got awhile ago, of lots of different yarns… it is so unique!


Lunchbunch… Mechanicsburg Family Photographer

01.15.09 My Kids

Today Gabby had lunchbunch at school… which was a huge deal for her… its basically a time that you stay after pre-school to play and eat your lunch… the best part is she got to hang out with her favorite teacher from last year. She was so cute this morning packing her lunch… she even made her own pb&j sandwich…

Here she is with her lunchbox…

K & D Harrisburg Engagement Photographer

01.09.09 Engagements

When i shot Amyra & Mike’s photos, Mike’s brother came along with his girlfriend Kathleen. After walking around the city for awhile, i mentioned to Kathleen that she looks so very familiar… then we realized we both went to high school together, and we were debate partners…such a small world i live in… i think that is my favorite part of being a photographer… I have accumulated so many friends and reconnected with people i wouldn’t normally see.



One more… Mechanicsburg Newborn Photogapher

01.09.09 NEWBORNS & Babies

I just love this one… thought i would share it!


Christmas baby…

01.08.09 NEWBORNS & Babies

This beautiful baby girl, Grace (don’t you love that name??) gave her mom a lot of trouble around christmas, she was a week overdue, and after being in days of labor, poor mom had a c-section. Luckily, all is good with both mom and baby and they came to my home the other day for a newborn session, she is 7 days old and perfect…

Here she is swaddled in one of my scarfs that i knit…
