Are you Ready to Schedule a Documentary Family Photo Session?
FAMILY COMES FIRST - Recently, some of our Pennsylvania family photojournalists have communicated their readiness to work with families who are able to carry on with their normal life and who want it documented. Family Photojournalist Association professional members offer a distinct and natural style of unobtrusive photography that will capture genuine, candid moments of you, your children, and even extended family enjoying time together...everyone gets in the pictures and you will likely forget the photographer is even there.
The purpose of reportage family photography is to tell a story — your story. You will be able to feel the love that you have for one another in the images. You will see the beauty that results when you are not posed or directed by your photographer to sit in a contrived position and smile on command at the camera. The FPJA has an abundance of top-ranked, State College family photographers who are available right now. Find yours today!

I have an M.Ed. in Youth and Family Education and spent many years working in the human service field but today I spend my days as a stay-at-home mother of three. Although I enjoy the fancy occasion to dress up, I live my life in comfortable clothes, usually including an elastic waistband. I love my curly hair yet it’s often pulled back in a bun in less than a minute each morning. I focus on connection and relationships, not the details of hair and makeup. After all, beauty shines its brightest through love. My goal is to capture your life honestly. 20 years from now I want you to look at the photos and film I make for you and remember what this phase of life felt like. That includes the messy, hard, and imperfect parts of it. I strive to capture memories, not images.
