Jalosky Weekly – Voume 12 – Pittsburgh Photographer Life

Welcome back to another edition of Jalosky Weekly. I know it’s been a month since the last “weekly” and perhaps I should rename it to “monthly” instead. Haha. Our life here in Irwin, PA has been pretty hectic over the last 6 weeks. Springtime has arrived. My busy season has begun. But that’s not the […]


Jalosky Weekly – Volume 11 – Irwin PA Photographer

May 24, 2021

It’s the simple things in life that end up being the best. The smallest details can teach us the biggest lessons. For example, if a bird builds a nest on a very loose and easily shaken blind that frequently is in the path of high wind, you should probably take it down as soon as […]

Jalosky Weekly – Volume 10 – Gardening, Water Play, and Bird Nests

Wow! What a week! It definitely ranks up there in my favorite week of the year. It was so jam packed full of wonderful things, but I’ll tell ya, I’m ready to just sleep for a month now. Part of that is due to how busy we were, and part of that is due to […]

Jalosky Weekly – Volume 8 – 5 Years Together, 3 Years Old, A Lifetime of Love

Here we are. One full circle around the sun since our dear Layla Grace was born! The sun was shining the day she was born. I could see just a glimpse of it from the delivery room. Then we moved to the post-partum room, and the rays were streaming in the giant windows of the […]


Jalosky Weekly – Volume 7 – Layla’s Birthday Week

March 21, 2021

It feels like spring! But as I carefully reminded myself and Alethea that it was still indeed winter for a few more days, I couldn’t help but feel wonderful knowing that winter is ALMOST OVER. It’s been an unusual winter for us this year, but a really good one! We actually had a good amount […]
