Newborn Shoot in Lititz, PA

When I walked in the house the kitchen had so much natural light I was so happy!  I love shooting with natural light if I can!  And it looked pretty empty.  I said to Dad, “You must have cleaned this out just for me?.  He replied, “No, we just moved.”  We both laughed!  I am glad they did just move gave me plenty of space!

Their baby was sleeping peacefully when I arrived.  Once we started the session, he decided he wanted to be awake and fight me!  Dad was wonderful!  He would rock and shh him to help me.  Mom was breastfeeding so she was great and knew if she came anywhere near him, he would expect food!  I really loved working with this family.

The older brother was full of spunk and energy.  He wanted to help me set up and talk to me the whole time.  I really don’t mind this.  I prefer them to do that because they warm up to you and aren’t afraid of you when it’s time to take the photos.

The superhero costumes were so fun.  Older brother loves to be Batman!  He was fighting the bad guys as I was leaving.  Too cute!  Lucky I have a son and am up on my superhero’s! newborn and sibling dressed in superhero custumes newborn posed in basket

Family Shoot at Greenfield

Beautiful Park located in the heart of Dutch Country in Lancaster, PA

I was so excited to do this shoot.  This family was referred to me from another client so I had never met them and had no idea what to expect.  They were a little hesitant of the weather.  It was a very windy day!  Darn that Mother Nature, always trying to challenge me!

I showed up early to walk the area and try and find the best spots for lighting and wind.  Of course, you all know how that goes.  Light and wind are constantly changing!  I picked my spots and waited for my family to arrive!

We met and got right into the session!  Their little boy is so adorable!  I felt it best to take a few shots and move to another location in the park because the lighting was harsh where we were.  We walked to a gazebo and did a few shots there and I really liked the lighting.  We just needed a little more!  I wanted to get into “open shade” and out of the wind.

We walked across the street to a really neat building.  This was perfect!  The lighting, the wind, I loved everything about it!  Wasn’t exactly the park and pond setting but the lighting and wind kept us from those areas!  I would much rather have a well lit subject that have a great background with harsh shadows and wind blown hair, anyone else agree?

So we finished our shoot up by the building and said our goodbyes.  I explained to them when they could expect their previews and gallery to be ready.  I really enjoyed working with this couple and hope to do many more sessions with them in the future!  Here is wha they had to say about the experience:

“I would Definitely come to Carole again for more pictures of my family ☺ very pleased!!”
