So much love in these Portraits! If you’ve been to Hoffer’s Ligonier Valley Packing, then you will definitely recognize these faces. They offer the BEST meat around! My personal favorite is their bacon, brisket, and beef jerky. Stop in their shop and fill up!

Higgins Family

I am so glad we were able to coordinate this family portrait session. It’s very hard to get everyone together and hire a photographer last minute, but it had to be done. The last family portrait they have together is when these kids were actually “kids”. Dawn owns Mommy Gear located in Ligonier, and Chris is a pilot and owns Higgins Airways. I am so glad they now have heirlooms of their beautiful family! #tarahasslerphotography / Ligonier, PA / 814-691-3346 / /

Teagan / Senior Portraits

What a GORGEOUS young Woman. So cheerful and full of spirit. Her Senior year will be a mess with everything happening due to Covid. I feel sad for all the Seniors, not being able to experience this last year of school like normal. I know she will make the best of it!
I will take the BEST portrait you have ever seen of yourself!

Wildcat Championship Belts

Before the Quarantine started, I photographed Wildcat Championship Belts from Latrobe, PA. The premier custom fabricators of championship title belts offering custom made belts for any budget. Originally created to serve the needs of the pro wrestling and MMA industry, Wildcat Championship Belts has grown to serve many different companies and international events that require unique awards or merchandise. We have produced belts for WWE, TNA Wrestling, Hulk Hogan, Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs, NASCAR’s Tony Stewart, VH1, This Old House, and many, many more.
These photos are to showcase custom belts for the Corporate World. Instead of buying a plaque for your best Salesman/Woman…..Get them something they’ll truly appreciate, a custom Championship Belt, made locally!

Oh Miss Ellie…don’t ever change. You are going to be one heck of a Woman someday, just like your Mama! She wasn’t able to continue her dance class due to Covid. So we got a few updated Portraits of her, in her dance dress.
