We headed outside since the wind was calmer and the temps were tolerable for a few minutes. Hagemeyer blog 4

When the kids started playing in the snow, it wasn’t long till an epic snowball fight broke out…Hagemeyer blog 6Hagemeyer blog 5

This is what families are all about…playing, laughing and having fun together!

Later in life, when the kids look back at these images, I hope they will fondly recall the fun time they had playing with their family, and the love they shared.


Erin & Don

Omni Bedford Springs Resort provided the stunning backdrop for this winter wedding with Erin & Don.  He couldn’t stop smiling from the moment he laid eyes on her that afternoon, and their connection with posing for pictures came naturally.

Because they were adventurous and willing to brave a few moments of chilly air before the ceremony, we were able to capture the outside holiday decorations and the romance of the resort.  Ok, it was downright cold, but Erin was a trooper and knew the effort was worth having some stunning images.

Ava is One

It has been fun watching Ava Grace the past year as her personality developed. Her charm brings joy to those around her and lights up the room.  I think Alicia and Kyle will have plenty of laughs and proud moments in the next few years.


Laughter Guaranteed Photo Booth Sheetz District 26 Recognition Dinner

The luncheon for Sheetz District 26 employees was a chance to laugh and relax as they were recognized for their years of service. The Laughter Guaranteed Photo Booth provides the opportunity for both formal posed group photos as well as crazy non-traditional portraits. Rocky Gap Casino was the perfect setting for a chance to unwind and celebrate.

Lauren & Sam Engagement

Lauren and Sam met at Montgomery Community College in a pre-calc class, and hit it off that semester. They have a love for the outdoors–hiking and enjoying nature. We visited some of their favorite locations for the engagement session. It was easy for them to be natural and enjoy each other’s company during the session. Plus, their love for each other is obvious! I’m looking forward to their June wedding and the celebration as they mix cultures and begin their married life together.

Laurel Senior Portraits

She’s got brains, talent and personality. On the rifle range, Laurel can put on her game face and be a fierce competitor.  But on the inside. she’s got charm and it is easy to see she is a deep thinker.  Laurel is one who quietly stands with confidence, and her ripples radiate to those around her. Thanks for being a great role model for others, Laurel.

Amanda & Justin

Justin and Amanda tied the knot at Omni Bedford Springs Resort on a blustery, winter day. She looked gorgeous.We were toasty inside, and the ceremony was filled with love and laughter. Their organization was impeccable, and their style in music, flowers, and friends was even better. It was a great PARTY with lots of dancing and music by the John Parker Band.We couldn’t resist a quick minute outside for some pics at the end of the evening.

The Little Mermaid–Everett Drama Club 2016

The Everett Area Middle and High School Drama Club gave a vibrant, energetic performance of Disney’s The Little Mermaid. Their talent was evident as they danced and sang through “Under the Sea,”  “She’s in Love”  and “Part of your World.” It was impressive to watch the students come alive on stage and give the performances their energy.  Kudos to Sean Cogan,  Larry Sarvey, Shery Foor and all who helped with costumes, set design and construction, props, tickets and more.  THANK YOU for  giving this amazing performance to our community.
