Updated Headshots for Rita

Meet Rita Coleman Graham!

She empowers others to succeed by providing meeting facilitation and training on communication & conflict resolution. She is also a member of WBN (Women’s Business Network), from the Laurel Highlands chapter. I am in the Ligonier chapter. One nice thing about WBN is it opens you up to other women business owners statewide. She was also a speaker for the Annual WBN conference.

STAT- Ligonier Therapeutic Center

Meet the professional team at STAT Ligonier Therapeutic Center! 

They facilitate personal change and quality of life improvement through equine-assisted activities (PTSD, combat trauma, childhood trauma, addiction recovery, autism, behavioral & physical disabilities). STAT provides unique and beneficial horse-powered health and wellness services, retreats, and corporate activities.

They are having their annual SUMMERFEST on August 6th from 12pm-6pm. Check it out! You can find their website here: https://www.statinc.org/ 

Owned by Catherine Markosky, STAT holds a special place in her heart. Her own son Mason was born 14 weeks prematurely resulting in brain injury with damage to his airways and a host of other problems. Mason wasn’t supposed to live, and his mobility was not good at all. His mother Cat was determined to help him and others by starting STAT. With equine therapy he is now 21 and riding like a champ!

Branding photos for Connections Cafe

Branding photos for one of my favorite places to eat in Ligonier, Connections Café! Sharon, the owner, always has fresh and organic ingredients. She is located in a new location between the Fort and the Creamery. (Which is right across the street from her old location). In the summer she makes a delicious pizza on the grill. If you haven’t been here yet for lunch, you must stop and try it! She is open 11am-3pm. She is also part of our Women Business Group WBN, and we hold our meetings in her cafe! #tarahasslerphotography / Ligonier, PA / 814-691-3346 / [email protected]


I ran into this woman at the Getaway Cafe, who was in town from Colorado visiting her sister. We spoke briefly and I gave her my card. She always wanted some updated “Glamour” portraits. Two days later, I had both Sisters in my Studio! I was even able to schedule professional hair and makeup last minute. God really worked his magic with this one! Both women now have gorgeous portraits of themselves! I absolutely LOVE what I do!

Aerial Photographs

Check out these aerial photos I took, while learning to fly an aircraft. I had hopes of getting my pilots license, however it is not in the cards for me at this moment. Although, I can officially take off and land a plane if ever needed in an emergency situation!
