Sliviak | Brittney & Michael | July 4th

The Fourth of July is my favorite holiday. There is something about the patriotism, the colors, the summer, the blue sky, and the fireworks that screech good cheer louder than any Christmas could — for me. This year I had the wonderful opportunity to spend the day photographing Brittney & Mike’s wedding. I couldn’t have asked Continue reading


Stars | part ii

One of the worst things about winter is the cold. One of the best things about winter is the stars. Over hill and under tree Through lands where never light has shone By silver streams that run down to the sea Under cloud, beneath the stars Over snow and winter’s morn I turn at last to paths that lead home And though where the road Continue reading


| HOPE | Senior Portraits | 2014

H O P E ‘ S senior portraits! Like Faith, Hope’s smiling is absolutely contagious! I had such a blast doing these senior pictures. Hope, you’re radiant! I had the hardest time deciding between black and white and color for these pictures.

Faith. I like pictures to tell the story because I can be so terrible with words. Words are clumsy and insufficient and hard to grasp — but color? That’s a whole different world. Faith, you. are. gorgeous. Your laughing and smiling and dancing is contagious!


| Old Paths | Life In Vermont

There are so many old palaces in New England. That’s right. Palaces. Kingdom’s of dust and stories of small heroic acts. Frankly, a single piece of brick could tell you a whole lot more about human nature than my philosophizing. Look at these old threads.


| Jamie | “Non” Senior Portraits

Good luck at Cedarville, Jamie! All the smiling credits go to Jamie himself (because he was laughing at his own jokes) and Aaron (who was there holding everyone’s stuff). Accurate. “


| Virginia | between walking in heels

My sisters & I were honored to be part of a ceremony for a dear friend last weekend. I wish I had a little more time in VA, it’s got such a great vibe in August — with the hot nights & southerness going on. Glad that someone else picked up the camera for these!


| Mary | Summer ’14

 Mary. My favoritist guinea pig when it comes to pictures. She’s so patient, fun, delightful, and has random tendencies to burst out singing “Truly Scrumptious” and Les Miserables songs. Sporting the sailory and boating look this shoot, we decided there wouldn’t be a more perfect location than the Lake. Gracefully. “And what is the use of a book,” Continue reading
