At the Lake | Deep Creek Family Portrait Photographer – Family Photo Session | Emily Hixon Photography

Not too long ago, I was in Deep Creek, MD for some late summer family portraits! It was my first time there. Who would have thought that I would be making another trip for family portraits in Deep Creek again less than three months later!? Last time, I went with Scott. This time, I brought my sister Natalie. I feel as though I keep repeating myself by boasting about the nice weather, but I have had some good luck with sessions this fall! It was about 70 degrees on this day at the end of October. Too bad it can’t stay like that all year round!

Enjoy another beautiful family! 🙂

“KenKarta Battle of the Onoxmon” | Event Photography – Peters Township, PA


Last Friday, I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph a really great event. Local author Alison Kartevold held a book launch party for her newly released children’s fantasy novel “KenKarta Battle of the Onoxmon.”(www.kenkarta.com) The event was held at Peters Township Library. Alison was nice enough to have all book sale proceeds donated to the library. There was a fantastic turnout of what I heard to be over 300 people! It looks like KenKarta is off to a great start.

The evening included entertainment from The Much Ado Players, raffles, free book signing, tons of cupcakes and food, a book reading, viewing of Les Polinko’s book artwork and sculpted creatures, and finally an audiobook preview.

I ended up with somewhere around 200+ images from the evening. It was difficult to choose just a few to share. Enjoy your look into the KenKarta Book Launch Party.

Red Hot Chili Peppers – Chad Smith | Peters Township, PA

I had an exciting day! I was given the opportunity to photograph Chad Smith, drummer from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Chad was brought into Pittsburgh by the Percussion Marketing Council. PMC had a contest to win a Chad Smith Clinic for a local school. The contest was won by Vincent Nemeth, owner of U Rock Music Center (http://www.urockpgh.net).

Chad was at Peters Township High School for the day. He worked with some of the student percussionists and then later performed at an assembly for the entire school.

The day was really fun and very loud! I think that everyone had a good time. I’m glad I was able to be a part of such an awesome event.

Enjoy!
