Family Session at Willow Valley Pond in Lancaster, PA

Mother’s Day Session for Lancaster Newspaper’s Mother’s Day Tribute

I was able to fit this family in right before the deadline for the newspaper.  Mom was willing to shoot at Willow Valley so I could fit it in before my girls dance classes.  We expected a beautiful spring like day, but got a windy winter like day instead!  The children were so well behaved and dealt with the condition like champs!

We walked the pond and took shots all around it and got this done fairly quickly so they could warm up in the car.  Shooting at this location now a few times, I am fairly comfortable with all my setting and compositions.  I never get too comfortable though, because every day is different.  Your lighting and weather conditions constantly changing.  It was a very windy day too.  We were dealing with Mother Nature not wanted to cooperate for us!

This are for photos is gorgeous and very easily accessible.  Perfect for the elderly or handicapped to get some pretty scenic shots but not have to hike a mile!  There is a little wedding chapel right beside the pond area, many wedding photo shoots have taken place at this area.

I did a family session once here before that couple had been married in that chapel, so the pictures were extra special to them because now they had 2 children and could pose in the same locations they did when they got married.  How neat is that?  I like that idea.  Show the progression of marriage to kids!

Back to this family though!  This mom is so organized.  She picked out her digital images and prints within an hour of receiving her gallery!  She is a decisive woman!  Have to love that about some people, they know what they want and can decide immediately!  Here is what she had to say about our session:

“Such an amazing photographer!!! Carole is very patient, friendly and down to earth. I thought my kids would be shy but Carole does such a good job with kids…my kids felt relaxed around her. Pricing is affordable and reasonable!! We had an awesome experience and will definitely look forward to having our next family pics taken by her!!! We loved our experience working with her and our beautiful pictures!!”

I love getting responses like that!  My goal is to make the client happy and produce images they love!  They have visions in their mind of the way they want things to look and I am totally fine with showing them my camera and making sure the session is going in the direction they wanted!  I also have no problems using my vision if they have none!  Very easy to work with and flexible!  Enjoy and please like my Facebook page and share with your friends!spanish family collage Latino Family in park
