Meet Sniper

Meet Sniper, our newest family member! 

He is 8 weeks old and pure German Shepherd. He has stolen our hearts already and we’ve only had him a few days. I’ve been searching GSD rescues for the last 2 years, in order to find one under a year old that is good with cats AND kids, which was impossible. So, when my friend reached out about this litter, I was ready! Hunter and I are so excited for puppy adventures this summer!

YES, I photograph pets too!

Updated Headshots for Sarah

Updated headshots for one of the kindest souls I know! 

Meet Sarah Kuchma! She is a local author and writes children’s books under the name Lyn Willy. My son loves her books! She is also co-owner with her husband Bill, of Diamond Heart Wilderness Training Grounds LLC. They have turned part of their property into an incredible learning experience for firearm training, wilderness first aid and survival, and ATV training. She is also very active in the BPW of Ligonier Valley, and will be the new President starting next month! She has a heart of gold and I am so lucky to have her in my life!

Updated Headshots for Susan

Meet Susan! I asked her why she needed some updated headshots and she told me she is a chronic volunteer. 😂 She retired, however, she is just as busy! She volunteers at her Church, Project Management Institute, American Management Association, Westinghouse SHORE, among other things. Oh, and she is also a Penn State Master Gardener! She absolutely LOVES her new headshots. Thanks so much Susan!

Ligonier Valley Chamber of Commerce

Meet Amy Beitel! She is the executive director of our Ligonier Valley Chamber of Commerce! They do SO MUCH for this community. I’ve been a member for the past 7 or 8 years now, and love being part of it! They really go out of their way to make local businesses feel important. I wish I could make it to the monthly morning meetings; however I am getting my child ready for school at that time.
