Lancaster, Harrisburg & Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Tina Jay Photography »

I hope everyone had an awesome weekend! I spent the weekend with my 3 nieces at my dad’s cabin. Sometimes it’s so nice to be out in the woods, in the middle of nowhere, and unplug for a while. It’s a good refresh for the soul!

Time for the next gorgeous senior! I was so excited for Marina’s shoot, and her session did not disappoint. She is absolutely beautiful, so easy to photograph, and her family’s property is a photographer’s dream. Her parents own Pleasant View Farm, and there were so many amazing spots all around their gorgeous home. Marina is another one of my TJP Senior Team girls for the Class of 2018, and she’s such an amazing addition to the team! She’s mature, sweet, and I always love the conversations I have with her. She represents Red Land High School well;)

Marina’s definition of true beauty is “having a personality that accepts both beauty and flaws, externally and internally.” For the impact she’d like to make on the world, she would love to help out other orphanages in the world, the same way they helped her. I just love this girl! Here are a few of my favorites from her session:

Happy Thursday, friends! Ever since I started photographing seniors, I love this time of year so much. I love getting to work with so many amazing high school girls – they’re all so sweet, so much fun, and it’s exciting to see the bright futures ahead of them:)

Annie just came in for her Session Premiere this week, and I couldn’t wait to blog her photos! Annie is an upcoming senior at Trinity High School in Camp Hill, and she is one of the sweetest girls you’ll meet. She’s another one of my TJP Senior Team girls for the Class of 2018, and I love having her as a part of the group! And in case you’re wondering: yes, the last senior I photographed from Trinity who is on my Senior Team was also named Annie. And guess what? They’re best friends;) Don’t you just love that?

Annie’s definition of true beauty is “being happy and confident in yourself.” I couldn’t agree more! Also, as far as the impact she’d like to make on the world, Annie wants to “make a positive impact, make people smile and realize their true worth.” See why I love these girls? Here are a few of my favorites from her session!

I finally got through the TONS of pictures I took on our trip to Charleston, I couldn’t wait to share some of my favorites! This city is a photographer’s dream. It took us forever to walk through all of the downtown streets, because I’d stop every 2 minutes to take pictures. Jay was about as thrilled as you can imagine;)

It’s hard not to fall in love with Charleston when you visit. It’s so quaint and full of so much old southern charm – it’s so easy to be completely enamored with this city! We spent our days wandering the streets of Charleston & visiting plantations. Then by night, we’d indulge in some DELICIOUS southern food. There are so many amazing restaurants there, so the foodie in my was in in heaven.

I’m so glad Jay and I took the time to go on this little getaway – we have dubbed it our babymoon. It’s crazy to think this is the last trip we’ll take, just the two of us, before Reagan arrives. It’s blowing my mind that she’ll be here in less than 3 months! But this trip was the perfect way to rest, relax, and enjoy some downtime with Jay before the newborn craziness ensues.

Enjoy my photo tour of Charleston!

 

The architecture in Charleston is amazing – it’s SO much fun just walking the streets, dreaming about which house would be your favorite to live in:

 

Rainbow row was a must:)

 

So many cute, tucked away alleys to explore:

 

Random fact about me – if I ever won the lottery and was a billionaire, I’d pay someone to come on vacations with me to take pictures. When it’s just Jay and I, I hate that it’s SO hard to get a professional picture of the two of us together!

 

Another random fact about me: I’ve decided my Charleston house would be pink with black shutters, just like this one below. Would I ever paint our house in PA pink? Definitely not. But the Charleston version of Tina definitely would;)

 

Yay for finding a ledge to balance my camera on to get a picture of both of us!

 

One day we visited Magnolia Plantation, and this drive in was EXACTLY what I envision when I imagine southern plantations!

 

The only other picture I have of Jay and I. Yay for benches that are tall enough to balance my camera on:)

 

Walking around the plantation gardens, there was the most amazingly picturesque lagoon area. I kind of want to blow this one up HUGE in my house – isn’t it beautiful?

 

And lastly, a view of where we spent our 4th of July. I was obsessed with our rental!

This month I was able to cross one of the big items off my bucket list – I finally traveled to Charleston! I have always wanted to visit this city, and we finally made it happen. Jay and I booked the trip last minute over the 4th of July, and I’m SO glad we did. We dubbed this our “babymoon”, since it’s the last time we’ll have a getaway, just the two of us, before sweet little Reagan makes her debut:)

Neither of us had ever been to Charleston, and we had such an awesome time exploring the city together for 5 days. As much fun as we had, I learned one thing about myself – I’m NOT a southern girl at heart;) I would never be able to handle the southern summers! It was brutally hot + humid, but we pushed through and had an amazing trip, just the two of us.

As soon as I spotted this little area during our city exploration, it was just screaming for my self portrait. A quaint Charleston home covered with pink blooms and pink petals on the ground? I couldn’t resist! So here I am, checking things off of my bucket list. Babymoon, check! Charleston, check!

Well friends, senior sessions are in full swing – my July is jam packed with a schedule full of amazing girls, and I’m so excited for the weeks ahead! So get ready for many, many senior blog posts to come:)

I’m so excited to kick off all of the senior posts with Annie. She is an upcoming senior at Trinity High School, and she’s one of the amazing girls on my TJP Senior Team for the Class of 2018. Annie is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. She has a heart of gold, and I’m SO glad she is a part of my team! Annie chose the Luxe senior session, so she had a ton of outfit options and we did two awesome locations: downtown Harrisburg, and her family’s home. I love photographing at peoples’ homes, it always makes the shoot feel so personalized!

One of my favorite questions that I like to ask my senior girls is what their definition of true beauty is. Here is Annie’s answer: “True beauty is being comfortable in your own skin without any makeup. Also, having a kind heart and soul that is as beautiful as what’s on the outside!! HAPPY is beautiful!”

I couldn’t agree more! Here are a few of my favorites from Annie’s senior session!

I feel like Annie looks like a model straight out of a magazine in this shot;)
