I was lucky enough to shoot her entrance into the world at the Birth Care Center in Christiana, PA. So I was overjoyed at the thought of going to do her newborn shoot. When I arrived at the house, little miss Lorelai was wide awake and wanted nothing to do with posing in basket and doing some photos. After being patient with her and mom feeding and feeding her, I was able to capture her in all her beauty. She is an adorable little newborn baby girl. I enjoy doing shoots like this all over Lancaster County, PA. How sweet is the shot in the bonnet? Or how about the headbands that mom made? Mom is quite the seamstress and this family was so nice to work with! I hope to be doing many more family shoots for them in the future.
Taking the time and being patient with the little ones really pays off. Being a newborn photographer is something that takes a lot of patience! Having the experience from the Women’s and Babies Hospital in Lancaster, PA working with new moms and newborns has helped tremendously. I absolutely am grateful at the opportunity to learn and grow as a photographer there.
Being a mother of 3 myself has also helped in understanding the first time mom compared to the 2nd or 3rd and so on child. It is so funny how different you are once you have been through it before. It is very scary and overwhelming being that first time mom and not knowing which advice you should listen to. I know when I left the hospital with my son, Donovan, I was so scared of what was to come.

Well doing this family was such a fun time. Teenage boys are always exciting. You never know which way it will go. They either complain the entire time or love it. Thank god these boys were having fun with it. Their mom was so nice too. I love this little location too! Its a safe, off the road covered bridge to capture some true Lancaster County feel photos. I really love my job and all that comes along with it. Please comment if you like them and share.
Mother’s Day Session, Family Session, Mom and her boys
So today I was looking over some of my recent babies and I thought I would talk a little bit about how I started this company. I ventured out on my own in photography a little over 6 years ago. I bought a nice Nikon camera and a brand new Mac and thought I was set. Started a business with a co-worker and we were off! Little did I know how much actually went into this new venture I started.
After working with the friend for less than 6 months, we decided to split ways and create our own companies. She ended up getting away from photography completely. So that is how Precious Image Photography began while pregnant with my last child. So until she was about 2 I didn’t truly become serious about making this work. She is now almost 5. Things are going great!
Why babies? Well I worked at the baby hospital in my local area for over 4 years as the Photography Manager. I learned there that I love working with babies. I also got plenty of experience with them. This gave me the safety knowledge and the skills needed. I also got the experience of working with the new moms and learning how to listen to them and understanding whether this is their first child or fourth, how different they can be.
How adorable is a sleeping baby?
So I learned and absorbed as much as I could. I would watch videos, attend workshops, and learn from anyone willing to teach me. I have come so far and I love that the learning will never end! My skills are always improving and my love for this deepens. Photography is such an amazing gift to have and share!
This was a quick shoot before a storm. We did it right at their house and used the surroundings. I can work with anything. I will find a way to get the right light and the best background available. How cute is the little one? She is so sweet too! Very quiet and well spoken! Enjoy!
Having your photo in the Lancaster Newspaper Mother’s Day Tribute is exciting! I am super excited to have so many participants this year. I really got a chance to meet some great families. When I did this family, the little girl was just a ball of fire! I had so much fun with her! She was interested in everything I was doing and wouldn’t sit still, but what else would you expect from a 3 year old? Typical. I was prepared! I have 3 kids, nothing phases me! Kids will be kids! Check out some of her adorable faces! I can’t wait to do their photos again!
Its always a pleasure photographing people you went to school with. You get to catch up and see how they are doing. Alicia and her husband both went to the same school as I did. They have kids my children’s ages. The reaction I got when posting them on Facebook was terrific! I am enjoying my job and all that comes along with it! Hope you enjoy!
I will be photographing Tina’s sisters wedding this fall. I got a chance to meet her family and do some great shots with them. Her little chunky monkey was a spirited baby to work with. He needed his pacifier to keep happy until we ready to snap. Works for me! I am a go with the flow type of photographer. Not every shot is going to be perfection, especially working with small ones. I will constantly move myself to follow the child where i need them to be in the frame of my camera. This is something that just comes natural to me. Enjoy!
I am a participating photographer in the Lancaster Newspaper Mother’s Day Tribute. It is a big thing around her to have your photo in the tribute. I love doing these sessions. I get to meet new families and build friendships and relationships with them. Today I am going to talk about Brandi and her wonderful bunch.
This family was a fun group to work with. Due to the winter we were having here we moved it to an indoor shoot. Her family was eager for photos, since they haven’t had them done all together like this before. The colors they wore really look great! This family was ready for their big day!
I was contacted by Lorelai’s mother in January about doing a birth session. I was over the moon excited to be able capture such a special moment in someone’s life. Her parents didn’t know whether she was a girl or boy. They were most excited in capturing the moment of when they found out. Sadly Lorelai came quick and I arrived about 10 minutes after she. Most importantly thought she is healthy! We were able to capture some great shots and moments. Enjoy!
Miss Delaney decided to come into the world early. She was ready!! And she just slept through her entire session. Made life easy for mom and I! I had a blast working with her and editing her sweet face. Look at her, how can I not love my job? Enjoy!!
Such a sweet face!
Working with the little ones can be challenging but I wouldn’t change it! Seeing the end result is always very exciting. I am not sure who is more excited to see them, me or the mom!
Love me some baby feet!!
Working with babies is such a rewarding part of the job. I can hold and snuggle with the new ones and create art for families to treasure for years to come!
