Welcoming our beautiful baby boy!

Wow what a whirlwind the last month has been welcoming our baby boy. I’m so glad I have the opportunity to stay home and spend this precious time with him and my husband. Although it’s been crazy, he is the most awesome little human & I am so excited to be his mom.

They say time flies and that statement is more true than it has ever been having a child of our own. The days are filled with feeding, naps, diaper changes and cuddles. I am so appreciative that I am able to be home and take in all that is being a new mom. Thank you to all of my clients for being so understanding during this time.

We were so lucky to have our amazing friend Sarah Mumper photograph our new little family at our home. More than ever, I realize how stressful going into a newborn session can be! How long until he cries, will he be happy for any of them, can we get at least one with the dog, when will I be able to feed him and how long will he eat for, do I have time to shower, do my hair and makeup and have some kind of plan for outfits for the rest of the family?! So crazy… I have a whole new appreciation and sensitivity for these types of sessions and the moms who make them happen! Baby did wonderfully and we even captured some breastfeeding shots while we took care of that part, can’t wait to look back and remember how challenging and tiny he was when we were both figuring that part out.


As you can see, Sarah captured so many beautiful moments and we are so grateful to her for spending all that time with us. After all was said and done, there were a few I really wanted that we didn’t get because we already spent three hours with Sarah! I figured, I can finally get my camera out and grab some, what a fun and exciting time to be able to capture my own little babe. Well, it didn’t turn out quite as easy as I had thought… I woke him up from a nap thinking he would be sleepy and I would be able to get a few shots quickly. He was screaming, I was upset because I tried to soothe him with feeding him, but he wasn't having it, trying to grab my camera and get a few shots before he was really screaming, boob out (leaking), baby was spitting up, pooping etc… so frustrating! Phew! I finally got the few shots I wanted after about an hour and thought to myself, this probably isn’t going to get any easier… haha which answers my question while I was pregnant about how many photos I’m really going to have of my own kid. I would hope it gets easier, but I’ll keep you posted!

Lesson to be shared through all of this, HIRE A PROFESSIONAL! Even a photographer should get to enjoy and be treated to some beautiful photos of his/her own family. It’s so much easier and it was such a beautiful experience instead of trying to do it myself!

Thank you Sarah for making this so easy and lovely. I am so glad to have these memories! Also, a little shout out to all Moms out there, you rock! Everyone tells you it’s hard, but you really have no idea until you do it yourself. It’s so worth it and we are so in love, but man… props to all of you! If you are reading this as a Mom, know you’re not alone and you’re doing a fantastic job!

I also have to say thanks to my wonderful husband Logan, who has been so incredibly helpful throughout this whole experience of bringing a new life into the world. More in love than I’ve ever been seeing you with our son.

Baby is Coming!

We are so excited to meet our little one & it’s not going to be long now! We are so glad to have these beautiful memories and Sarah Mumper Photography did an amazing job capturing them for us! It’s always an interesting experience being on the other side of the camera, but we had so much fun! (Of course it helps to have your very good friend capture them… no matter how cold it is!) Thank you Sarah for braving the cold with us and making these amazing moments for us. It was so hard to choose my favorites to share and going to be even more difficult to choose which to display in our home. We will really enjoy sharing them with our kiddo someday. Love this man and we cannot wait to meet our little babe soon!


As far as being behind the camera, it’s been hard for me to decide when to take some time off so I’m kind of winging it! I will certainly be taking the first few weeks off after baby is born to spend time as our new little family, but will still be available, although responses will be delayed. I appreciate all of my clients understanding during this time. Timing has worked out well though because it’s not a very nice time of year for photos, so I don’t expect many of you to need me as much as you might as the year goes on. I will most likely ease back into my normal shooting schedule in late spring, just in time for the beautiful weather to come back. Feel free to reach out if you are interested in scheduling and I will get back to you as soon as possible. After photographing so many memories for all of you, I am so excited to experience the amazing moments of becoming a Mom & capturing them for our family too. Thank you for visiting! I will soon be updating with the new member of our family! <3

It’s time to confirm your date for the 2019 & 2020 wedding season! I’m so excited for another beautiful season. If you are looking for a photographer or know someone who is, please reach out! I’d be happy to meet with you in person and chat more about your day. It’s so much fun for me to talk about and get excited with each bride and groom about their big day. Especially on days like today (-1 degrees with a feels like temperature of -15) I can’t wait for warmer wedding days… much like this beautiful one from last year. It’s the perfect time to cuddle up on the couch and start planning. I can’t wait to see all of you beautiful couples!

Delivering Joy!


Happy 2019 Everyone! I’ve been meaning to share this very exciting piece with all of you. This little guy is a very good friend’s son and he won the UPMC photo contest for cutest baby! I get to see his adorable little face on our local billboards! It makes me so proud to have captured his photos since he was born and he makes the perfect little spokesperson for delivering joy.

I am also getting the opportunity to experience the wonderful care that the UPMC OB department provides in Williamsport. I’m so glad we have such a great group of people in our area. I can’t wait to welcome our little one into the world with all of the wonderful UPMC staff. A huge shout out to UPMC for making such a beautiful piece. Of course also to the family that allowed me to capture these special moments for them! So much Love!

Family Photos are Incredibly valuable!

I hope you all are staying warm and had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I was happy to be home and spend time with my family and even make some memories for some other families. You know what I hear more than anything else as a photographer? “We haven’t had a family photo for years”. It’s easy to let time fly by with all of our busy schedules and out of town family members. If you are someone who is guilty of not having a family photo taken in awhile, please schedule something today! You just never know how things could change and you don’t want to miss out on an important memory with family. Not to mention, the kiddos only stay little for so long!

I’m going to be announcing extended family specials for over the holiday season so you can take advantage of when family is home! Be sure to follow my social media to see available dates. If this special doesn’t work out for you, grab a gift certificate for a family session next year! It really makes an amazing gift and everyone involved is happy to have the memories. You can grab a gift certificate here:

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season!


Fine Art Nature Gallery!

Hello Everyone! I’m excited to announce a new gallery I’ve added to my website, my fine art nature photos! Since I’ve grown up in such a beautiful place, where I now live again, I have so many nature shots I’ve taken over time and I finally got a lot together to share with all of you. I plan to share more as I shoot more, but it’s a good start! All are available for purchase to add some local or not so local beauty to your home. Since it’s that time of year, this could make a great gift too! Find the new gallery under my main menu - gallery - fine art nature.


Thanks for visiting! I’m excited to share this with all of you as nature is what really made me fall in love with photography in the first place. Have a great day! :)

Mr. & Mrs. Berrier!

A huge Congratulations to these two! What a fun day and you wouldn’t even know it was one of the wettest fall days this year. I always tell bride and grooms that we can get some really unique shots when it’s raining and these two were totally up for making them happen! We also were very lucky to have a gorgeous location where the ladies got ready (Rikki Ferrar’s beautiful make up studio) all the way to the lovely venue for their ceremony & reception (Farrington Place). Here are many favorites since it was so hard to choose… Cannot wait to share more from this awesome day!


Such cute kimono robes from Arrow & Thread!

Can’t wait to share more from this amazing day. Congratulations you two!

All about a "Wreck the Dress" Photo Experience

Hello there! I thought I would brighten everyone's Monday by sharing a beautiful experience I had recently. I'm so often sharing about the amazing wedding days I get to shoot, but I had the opportunity to share in something different a few weeks ago. A friend of mine recently finalized her divorce and was thinking about how she would never really use her wedding dress anymore. She had seen some others do "wreck the dress" portraits and of course I encouraged her to try it out herself. I've done a few others in the past, and most have been just another reason to get photographed in the dress that holds so many happy memories. This time it would be a little different. 

This time she wanted to actually wreck her dress. She was happy to be moving on and continuing forward in her new life. Wrecking her dress was her way of saying goodbye to that part of her life and celebrating finding herself and her happiness again. Although it was a lot of fun, I could see the emotion when we were shooting the last moments of the session. She was glad it was gone and glad to move on... and in the process has some pretty badass portraits to cherish the moment forever. I'm happy to be a part of moments like these and I wish her all the best in the future! 


If you are interested in something like this, please don't hesitate to reach out. You can find my contact info at the top of this page or here! keeleyloyphotography@gmail.com, 570-337-4712. Thanks so much for stopping by! Below are some examples of similar experiences without actually wrecking the dress. I think having fun and creating some more portraits in your dress is totally worth it, whichever direction you decide to do. :) I hope these made you smile. Have a great day!
