Jalosky Family Christmas Letter – 2022

December 20, 2022

Madilynn is basically a queen of dance. Since she was young, she’s been attending the Steel City Dance Academy to learn how to dance and perform! I had to dig through my memory to remember “first position, second position, etc.” from when I took a few ballet classes as a small child. Recently, my daughters […]

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

Emily and Alan met online. (Do you see a trend here in the last couple engagement posts? Haha) If you’re looking to meet someone, that seems to be the way these days! They’ve been together over 7 years now – so it MUST work. One day last summer, in the middle of the pandemic, they […]

Emily & Alan – Spring Engagement Photos – Irwin, PA

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

April 12, 2021

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 9 – Birthdays, Deep Creek Lake, and Easter

I feel like last Sunday was SO long ago already. This volume of Jalosky Weekly is just packed full of fun activities and bucketloads of sunshine! We spent a lot of time in the great outdoors this week. I’ve lost track of how many hours we’ve spent outside in the last few weeks. I was […]

March 29, 2021

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 […]
