A Centenarian – A life well lived!

Mary Alice, born in 1921, was the oldest of three. After graduation, she attended Lancaster Bible School. She was married in 1941 and had one daughter. This remarkable woman has always been very musically inclined. She played the piano and directed choirs at several churches, played the organ and played the violin. She has taught Sunday School and led Pioneer Girls for many years. All the while she was an Executive Secretary to the Actuary at PA Blue Shield. Along with her husband, Mary hunted, fished and boated, and in fact, shot her own deer!!

Mary Alice was an accomplished seamstress, made coats, gown and all her own clothes and her daughter’s. She knitted, crocheted, embroidered, and quilted. She did all sorts of crafts.

She has two grandchildren and four great grandchildren. They are pictured here in honor of her hundredth birthday. What a enjoyable photo shoot this was. Having been long-time friends with Chuck and Joy (her daughter) along with the Shugharts, made this so much fun to be part of.

Stahl Family Fotos

One thing I really love doing is taking pictures of people. It is so nice to be able to photograph a family. Mostly, I photograph my family, but once in awhile I capture images of people whom I haven’t met before. This is a blessing, getting to know them through the camera lens and interacting with them on so many levels. Recently, I have been able to meet a family and shoot their family pictures at Little Buffalo State Park. This was an awesome place to catch a small glimpse into their family. Lots of places to walk and talk and pose. The Stahl family consisted of Grandparents, Tim and Bernice, their Son’s family, Josh and Maddie with their sweet little boys, Ryker and Kolton. The little people were so very patient and good during this process! We captured many lovely images of all of them and some of them. Enjoy a peek into a very enjoyable time!

Our Boys! Another Year Older!

It has been some time since I posted to this site, until recently. Word Press has changed things again…I got a new computer (PC) instead of my Apple and have been reticent to work with it posting pictures and such. With Covid going around, I have not been able to take the Grandchildren pictures that I usually do, every summer. We haven’t seen our kiddos living in the south since Christmas for various reasons. Well, life goes on, and so must we. A month or so ago I took pictures of our local Yocals! LOL They grew so much in the few months on not seeing them…getting older and growing older looking with every passing week. I have been amazed at how much they changed in just a couple of months of not seeing them. The Grandchildren are so much easier to capture these days, now that we have the olders…not babies. Though we surely do miss having little rug rats around. It is nice that I don’t have to chase them down to capture their sweet faces, and they know the picture drill, having had my camera in their faces since birth! Here are the yearly pictures of Owen Feehan – 10, Cormac Feehan – 8 and Padraig Feehan -6 I know you would agree…they are some handsome Dudes!
