York PA Children's Photographer- Trip to Barefoot Farm in Dover PA

Hi guys! Sorry it has been a few weeks since updating the blog. I am just catching up from my June photos. This summer we took a trip to Barefoot Farm in Dover PA where my children and I had a really enjoyable time picking strawberries and eating ice cream! We went three years ago and I photographed our time there as well. It's just such a nice place to unwind if you want to get away and breathe some country air! One day I would LOVE to run an ice cream shop somewhere like this, open to the public with a playground nearby. I hope you all love these images. Click here to see photos from our trip three years ago!  Farm trip from 2015 

So I wanted to begin saying that Sophia has really taken an interest in photography. I am teaching her how to compose a shot, move the focus points and now she has figured out that changing the shutter speed changes how much light goes into the lens. Nearly every time I have my camera out she is trying to steal it from me! I will tell you which pictures she took at Barefoot Farm....

The farm has an adorable home on the land, and as you drive up you will see the store on the opposite side.

I love the blue sky here....They just love running like all kids do and this was a perfect setting for that!

My daughter took this one! Are you surprised? I was impressed that it turned out so well and was so sharp.

And Sophia also took this. She said it was very cool that what she saw in real life was what showed up on the camera after she took the photo.

Um the best part of the trip!

Children's Photographer in York PA {July 4th mini session}

Hi everyone! I hope everyone had a nice day today! I am stopping by my blog tonight to post about the July 4th pictures that I took of my kids two weeks ago! I try to take a unique photo of my kids for each Holiday. It's just a fun way to play around with some ideas, in the event I ever decide to do the same types of pictures for clients. This is my way of rehearsing and learning what works and what I need to improve on! My children are good cooperative models for me! 

So, for this year's July 4th mini session, I took my kids to John Rudy Park for some "fancy" pictures of them. Since it was hot out, I went with the popsicle idea... it was a good idea in theory because the popsicles are red, white and blue.... One thing I learned, no- TWO things that learned that day...my popsicles were really small and melted almost right away.  I should have bought the kind of pops that are like two pops stuck together with two sticks, if that makes sense. They melted really fast and the color disappeared. If I had to do it again, I would definitely have had my husband come with me and hand them the pops once I was ready to take the photos instead of handing them their pops and running back to set up my camera settings..... I tried to get the kids to stop eating them when the red color disappeared but they just looked at me like I couldn't be serious, haha!

This was last year's July 4th image from me.........I still love it! Oh my goodness, he is wearing the same shirt in this year's photos!

This year. Sophia and I hopped out of the car and I took this one! I had to snap one with those pretty flowers behind her.

Family Photographer in York PA {Session at John Rudy Park}

Hi there, and thank you for stopping in to view my latest blog post! Today I would love to show you the images from my most recent family session! I met Johanna last year when she joined the Moms Club of York. She and I see one another a lot at mommy and me events! I was so excited when Johanna and Josh wanted me to take their family portraits. Their little girl Melanie is so cute too! I hope you all love these photos. They were taken at John Rudy Park, one of my favorite places to photograph families and children. I try to find beautiful locations for my sessions and I am never disappointed with how my images look when I use this park setting! I hope that you all love these! Have an incredible week!

Love this little face. Melanie liked looking at all the pretty flowers and had a nice time!

Mother- daughter portraits are always my favorite, haha!

Father's Day portraits {photographer in York, PA}

I am hoping that everyone is having a great week! We celebrated my husband's 38th birthday on Saturday and luckily we had tons of cake left over for Father's Day. The weekend went very well and Dad seemed very happy! I really love taking pictures on particular days of the year...Christmas, birthdays, first and last days of school, for example. Sometimes my husband even lets me take pictures of him too! It is nice that I can provide my family members with photos. I get immense joy out of taking pictures and seeing a final product that I worked very hard to achieve! 

Three years ago....three! oh gosh. This was when I began my personal "Father's Day mini session" for my husband. The kids were tiny!

Children's photo shoot at John Rudy Park- York PA Photographer

One of the more enjoyable aspects of photography that I have enjoyed is getting the chance to play around with light! One night last week we had a storm roll in.... I love thunderstorms! My daughter had to go to bed so she stayed home with my husband and my son Ryan and I went to John Rudy Park to walk around for a bit. We arrived at the park around 7:50 pm and the sun was already behind the trees at that point. The light wasn't my ideal because I felt like some spots were so flat but it was still kind of fun to work with! I had to place Ryan in front of the light in some of these because it just was so dark.

The first image was my favorite. My boy is just so cute and handsome!

I let Ryan run and play.  When I called his name he knew to stop and pose though, haha.

I loved how cool the lighting looked here.
