OMG totally awesome, beautiful


Other than my discounted Summer and Christmas Minis, I rarely run sales on sessions. The last time was 4 years ago! Guess what? You are in luck! CKP is announcing a Holiday Gift Certificate Sale!!!  A gift that keeps on giving! The perfect gift for someone who has everything!  Or better yet treat yourself! Gift certificates may be used for Seniors, Engagement/Couples, Families, Newborn, First Birthdays or whatever your heart desires.

Since, the rest of 2017 is booked, and I am due with my second baby at the end of January. I am taking those first few months of 2018 off to focus on my health and our family (with some flexibility on case by case circumstance). Therefore, these gift certificates may be used from April 2018-Apri 2019. Which is ideal for Spring, Summer, Fall of 2018 or even a shoot next winter of 2019!

This 2017 Holiday Gift Certificate Sale is valid from November 17th-November 22nd, 2017. Any gift certificates purchased after November 22nd will be normal pricing.

Amy & Reggie didn’t want to fuss about a wedding and get caught up in all the details.  They chose to have a hometown Punxsutawney backyard wedding where the focus was fun!  although they wanted their wedding low key, they sure know how to look fabulous and have a good time! Here is their day!Amy looked stunning and loved her look!  it was just perfect!reggie, who is so handsome had a custom suit made and I adored every detail!when I say, they didn’t want fuss….they really didn’t.  a first look wasn’t on the agenda. they had figured they would have seen each other before I arrived. but they had not yet. so a quick impromptu first look happened! <3these 2 though!!! jack jack. 🙂 Amy’s nephew that everyone just adores!it’s not a Punxsutawney backyard wedding without Phil!how can you not love these dogs?!  I love that they were apart of their day!
this is what Amy & Reggie wanted….fun! Family, friends and FUN!

Hi, Courtney! A friend, Helen, who is a delightful IUP grad student from Nigeria, wishes to have a photo shoot with her fiance who is also from Nigeria but going to west VA for his grad degree. She wants a photographer who has a place where some outdoor & indoor photos could be taken. Nothing too extensive. She’s got a limited budget. Can you help?
