December

A few weeks have passed and I’ve been so busy capturing moments that I haven’t had chance to post some of my favorites here.  I’m working to keep up to date!

We’ve moved into winter sports and the plethora of holiday events for one of the most wonderful times of the year as the song says.  And I’ve gotten to share the story of some pretty adorable youngsters.  Filko 05 PSUvolley4 PolarPlunge2 Hanukkah2 BFPVrec10 BFPVrec19 BfVictorian03 ToysTots1 POwrest4 BowlMedia100 PSU grad9 Amina4 SantaExpress2 SantaExpress4

Bishop Visit

I’ll admit I was not pleased to get myself out of bed early, presentable and to Philipsburg to cover a church service this morning.  After doing video all day yesterday at Penn State football’s game I was a little drained.  But when I walked into this church I was in awe.

It was gorgeous.  Art history knowledge came flooding back as I looked around the sanctuary.  I was there to photograph the new Bishop, Rt. Rev Audrey Cady Scanlan, whose robes and personality were just as stunning.

Puppies!!

Ready for adorable overload!  Today I spent some time photographing…and a lot of time cuddling with some pups at Centre County Paws.  The story focused on the puppies that are coming to Centre County from Carolina where they don’t have room for them.  Most had applications in for them by the time I left the open house event and many pups were tired out from all the play and pets they got from eager want to be owners. Puppies01 Puppies02 Puppies05 Puppies06 Puppies08 Puppies09

Aqua Pups

I love the pool in the summer time. I enjoy swimming, and laying out reading with diving board breaks.  Labor day weekend when they close their doors is a always a disappointing day for me.

Today though I got one final pool day, but instead of enjoying the water myself, I photographed local furry friends having an exciting afternoon and splashing their way through the pool.

Makers Week Finale

I learn new things everyday with my job, but today my teachers were younger then normal and definitely could outsmart me. With the summer maker week at Schlow library and the Discovery Space coming to an end youngsters gathered to show off what they’ve created.  Dune buggies stopped and started as they turned through an obstacle course, a drone hovered, pressure bottle rockets shot into the air, and paper towers got built higher and higher.

Grange, Sunday

I enjoy the stories everyone shares with me at the Grange fair each year.  A tent with a large corn obelisk grabbed my attention to start the day.  The family created the decoration off of a photo from one of the first fairs.  With good history to start my day I captured images to become history for these families.
