More Than Conquerors Clothing – MOTHCO Lookbook

2015-05-29

I am all about young, up and coming businesses and entreprenauers so when I saw MOTHCO and what it was all about I was so excited. A lot of people lose sight of WHY they started something. It becomes about the fame, the glory, being cool, having so many followers on instragram and we tend to forget what our original purpose and passion was. The reason WHY we want to reach that many followers. Not to be cool, but to reach the nations with the good word and love of God. There is something so amazing about a fresh vision and pure heart. Samuel Bernhardt and Kaylynn Bert began More Than Conquerors which started as a fundraiser for local families who were impacted by cancer. This purpose has continued in their mission to partner with people and meaningful organizations by providing them with funds that come from their profit. They believe in taking responsibility for the social needs around them and using what God has given them to bless others.

“We believe in purpose more than profits. Currently, we are partnered with Urban Hope, a Christian organization dedicated to the mission of providing believers with cross-cultural training and experience in urban ministry.  We’re More Than Conquerors Clothing, and we make great clothes to support great organizations.”

How awesome is that!? What they’re doing is truly amazing and touching so many. I wanted to help them grow their business and be a part of this reach in some way or another. I firmly believe in supporting ministries; though you may not be the one going and doing what they’re doing, if you’re pouring into their ministry you’re planting oats into their harvest. So good. I also love putting together things during my less busy seasons to keep the creative juices flowing. It feels so great just to get creative and have fun! So this Winter we teamed up and put together a styled shoot for their 2014 Winter Look book! I am so excited to share my favorite images from this session with you. Make sure to check out the full look book over on the MOTHCO website!

Roberts Family – Lifestyle Session

2015-05-28

The Roberts are seriously a family walking right out of a J. Crew ad, am I right!? So photogenic, stylish and good looking! And to top it off, they were just about the sweetest people I have ever met. Can we just be like, family or something? I had so much fun walking around their GORGEOUS property around sunset this past Winter photographing them. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy styling and posing photos but there is just something amazing about sitting back and being the silent eye that catches the real life happenings. Candids: unposey and real. My motto. Lifestyle sessions are becoming more and more relevant and it makes me so happy!

Dancing in my chair (literally – I just updated my iTunes playlist) with excitement to share these images with you all! What do you think!?

Kaylisha – Senior Session

You guys. Does this session even need a blog post with it!? I mean, holy cow. Look at this girl! She is gorgeous from the inside out. These are hands down some of my favorite images I took in 2014. Kaylisha braved the severe cold and harsh wind to rock these shots. And let me tell you, she definitely rocked them. Ah, I love senior sessions. This was one of those “I feel totally reinspired and motivated creatively” sessions. The edit, the subject, the location, the cotton candy sunset. I can’t even. The awesome factor is real.

Brian and Megan – Lifestyle Session

Brian and Megan are two of the sweetest, funnest people! They drove from West Chester to walk around Downtown Lititz with me and photograph the afternoon away! Literally. We had a blast getting to know one another. We ended the evening at Middlecreek, a local hiking spot and lake (one of my all time favorite spots ever). These two get along so well, laugh it up, and are so intentional with their conversation. I felt like we’d been friends for awhile! Though it was a little chilly, these two rocked the shots. Here are some of my favorites! Enjoy!

Brent and Andrea – Lifestyle Session

I’ve been blessed to have Brent and Andrea as friends for about 3+ years now and I’ve known Andrea for about 6+ years! Almost three years ago I photographed their amazing destination wedding in The Duck Keys, Florida. I can’t believe how fast time flies. I love photographing friends/clients throughout all the wonderful seasons in their lives. Andrea has become one of my closest girl friends and she also is a Meagan Nicole Photography second shooter during wedding season! It was so fun walking around Musser Park in Lancaster City with Brent, Andrea and their latest addition to the family, TOBY! I like to refer to him as tobster, also known as Kemma’s (my puppy) boyfriend. It was basically love at first sight and their pretty inseparable when we have them together (except for when they’re wrestling one another for their toy back).

Brent and Andrea are such a sweet couple and obviously are dear to my heart. I am so thankful for their friendship, and my camera is forever thankful for their good looks and photogenic faces. Here are a few of my favorite shots from our evening together!

Matt and Ariel – Engagement Session

2015-05-26

Matt and Ariel are two of the funnest, sweetest, cutest couples I’ve ever met. This was one of those sessions that I just couldn’t put my camera down! I love when my job allows me to push past “the normal”; when I can feel myself enter into a place of creativity flooding my being. It’s such an amazing feeling and I’m so honored my clients choose to let me in their life for special occasions to create special memories. It’s not just about the actual pose or photograph. It’s about how you felt when taking that photograph. The smells, the songs you favored that time in your life, the feeling of laughing and kissing the one you’re in love with, newly engaged preparing for your wedding, all those kinds of things. And then I get to step in and document creative photographs to embody that time in your life, for you to look back on and always remember those memories. AH. It’s so awesome.

This session was one that completely re-motivated and inspired me last year and has me so excited for all of my 2015 weddings and couples. Matt and Ariel instantly felt like friends and were just so darn photogenic. Though it’s super hard to choose, I think my favorite shot is the black and white holding hands image. Which is yours!?

Dylan and Nina – September 27th, 2014

This blog post has been a long time coming. Dylan and Nina are two of my oldest and closest high school friends. To hear more about their high school sweet heart story click here to view their engagement session. Nina and I planned our weddings two weeks apart, it was so much fun! Literally all of my girl friends and I got married together last year and it made everything so memorable. So many coffee dates at barnes and nobles, looking through wedding magazines, planning out what all we could share decor wise, and helping one another make our visions come to life.

Dylan and Nina’s wedding was one of a kind, elegant, whimsical and so beautiful. Their venue “Regents Glen Country Club – Box Hill Mansion” was breathtaking! A tall waterfall, acres and acres of field and trees and gardens; a cool breeze and a golden sunset with pink and gold decor to top it all off. I just can’t even.

One of my favorite moments of this day was when Nina’s maid of honor Courtney delivered a letter from Dylan before the ceremony. Low and behold, Dylan surprised Nina by fulfilling her life long dream of getting a PUPPY. Yes, this groom got his bride a puppy as a wedding gift. WHAT. It was pretty epic, and Nina’s reaction was priceless; full of tears, shock, smiles and happy dancing.

 Nina shared a first look with her bridesmaids + her father, both which were emotional and adorable.This magical day was filled with lots of happy tears and special moments. I am so excited to finally be sharing it with you all!
