The Man Behind The Lens
I’m Jon Blanchard, owner and lead photographer at Sparks Ignite Photography. We have a studio located at 647 Philadelphia Street Indiana, PA. I’m glad you stopped by to see our website! I’d love to get to know more about you, so here’s a little about me. I’m originally from Louisville (Loo-ah-vul), KY and it will always be considered "home" to me. So don’t be surprised if you hear me say “y’all” or “dear”…It happens. That being said, I've lived in little ol' Indiana, Pa since 2008 and I have thoroughly enjoyed becomming part of this community! I have 3 little boys that I absolutely adore: Noah, Jack, & Sam. If we end up meeting, you can expect to hear me talking about them and showing off lots of pictures. Baby Kitty is my feline companion and she is the most affectionate furry creature that has ever existed. Not a bad model either, I might add ;)
I have quite an eclectic assortment of hobbies including, but not limited to: coffee drinking, tennis playing, baby-wearing, junk food eating, motorcycle riding, movie watching, playing trucks on the floor with my boys…But most importantly (to those of you reading this) I LOVE photography. It has morphed from my hobby, to my job, to my passion. There is nothing more rewarding than providing people with unique portraits that will last forever.
I believe every day should start with coffee. Lots of coffee. Every. Single. Day! I love grabbing a coffee with clients and discussing how we can create the best possible images for their wall. My favorite coffee shop in the entire world is Commonplace Coffeehouse and it's right in Indiana, PA. Let's meet there for a cup-a-joe on me and plan your session! They also have several shops in Pittsburgh and I'm happy to meet you there if you live closer to the city.
