Generation Shoot

Too cute!

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!

Mother’s Day Session

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!

Alicia Generation/Mother’s Day

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!

Tina Family/Baby Session

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!

Mother’s Day Shoot ~ Brandi

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!

Meet Miss Delaney Jones

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!

So sweet!

 

 

 

Baby Brayden Comes Early

Brayden decided to make his debut 3 weeks early like his older brother, Brenden.  Mom and I were super excited on photo day and were texting back and forth talking about how much he sleeps.  Well we jinxed ourselves.  This boy didn’t sleep the ENTIRE session.  I was there for 3 hours!  I am so glad I was able to get some great shots regardless.  In the 4 years I photographed the newborns at the hospital I learned how unpredictable they can be and how each one is different and will allow different poses.  I work with what they do and allow.

How amazing are those blue eyes?

Sometimes we get stuck on wanted something in particular and being obsessed on getting “the shot”.  I try for shots and if baby wants no parts of it, I move on and get what baby wants!

Baby Jacqueline Arrives

After doing Meagan’s maternity shoot we kept in constant contact about the delivery.  I was informed of baby Jacqueline’s arrival and we started planning her shoot.  Unfortunately Mommy had a terrible infection and had to be readmitted to the hospital.  Once all that was cleared up we set our date.  I went to Mom Mom’s house where she was staying to recover and get some great help with caring for herself and her baby in her condition.  Her best friend, Beth, who purchased the gift certificate was there.

Capturing her was pretty easy as she just slept through most of it.  I couldn’t believe how she posed for us.  I am happy to share her here with all of you.

We had lots of plans for the little cutie.  Here are some samples of what we did with her.  Enjoy!

Maternity Shoot with Meagan

Meagan was a winner of a free session shoot.  I met her at Pinnacle Point and she brought her Maw-Maw along.  I met some of the nicest people I have ever met in my life that day.  Meagan was so uncomfortable since it was late in her pregnancy and I felt so bad for her.  She never complained and was up to try anything.  She is such a photogenic, gorgeous young lady.  We had a great time with the most amazing view!  I love going here and this place was especially dear to me, as I also had my maternity pictures done there.  Now I shared the special experience with Meagan!

Once we were done with the shoot and packing the stuff into my car, we realized that she already had a newborn session booked with me since her friend purchased the gift certificate as a gift for her baby shower.  I loved that I would for sure get to work with her again and photograph the little angel.  I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of baby Jacqueline!

Newborn Shoot Info

This is going to be the dish about what to expect during a newborn shoot with me.  Let me start off by saying I really enjoy working with newborns.  They might be my favorite subjects!!  The best time to photograph a newborn before 10 days of age.  They are easier to pose and tolerable of the positions everyone wants.

I will come to your home so you don’t have to travel out with your new one.  It takes me about 15 minutes to set up.  I will work with you and your baby to get all the poses you would like to have of your new bundle.  From conversations we have, I will determine what type of theme and style you prefer and customize the props I bring in relationship to that.  I have over 4 years experience working with newborns at a local hospital.  I have been trained in baby safety and always provide that first.

It is also best to book your newborn session with me prior to baby’s birth.  That way you have your spot with me.  Then you can let me know when your bundle arrives and we can get you on the schedule within the week.  I find this way of scheduling works best.  I will provide all the necessary props and fun stuff to make your session special!  Please feel free to email, text or call me with any questions.
