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

One of the more fun 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.

Mother's Day

Hi and thank you for stopping by! I wanted to take a minute and share some of my personal photos from this month. I try to have my photo taken with my kids as much as possible and I believe it's important for me to have these keepsakes. People always tell me it's nice that I want to be in my own pictures with my kids. I do tons and tons of location scouting and sometimes I will dress up when we go out and hand my husband the camera so he can get a photo of our kids with me. They will only be little once and it's pretty special to me to have these.

 Since Mother's Day was in May I really tried to get as many photos as possible with my children. Some of these were taken on different days and at different locations. Being in these pictures means the world to me and I think that if I can encourage moms to be in photos then it's a nice feeling to be an inspiration to women! In honor of Mother's Day, my Mommy & Me mini sessions at $106 right now.

 I hope you all like these! Thank you for checking out my blog & Happy Memorial Day weekend!

Blossom Session - Mini session info {York PA}

Hi there! It is almost Friday! I have had a really weird week and it seems like the days went by very fast but I guess it's because I have had a lot of stuff to do. I really wanted to post this earlier in the week but my week really flew by! If you are in need of amazing pictures, I am available this Saturday and Sunday for the blossom sessions! The cost is $106 including tax for my time and eight digital images. The park is in York, PA. You must email or message me to book your slot! There is a slight chance of rain for the weekend but I can try to plan around that.

 Here is a look at a couple images taken three years ago of my children. My Mama heart can't deal! We have been coming to this spot for three years and each spring I wait and wait for these blossoms. I hope you all enjoy these as much I do. It is really special to me that I have these of my kids because every year when spring comes, I make sure we get to this spot so it's really sentimental for me to keep doing it. I guess I am also partial to this location because it just looks like a regular place any other time of the year but one week in April or May when these bloom, it is just so magical! I feel like I've found a hidden treasure.

The family image on the left was from two years ago, the one on the right was three years ago.

Now this year...we went on Monday! My art is improved but I still love the ones from a few years ago too.

Well Hello Gorgeous! Teen/ Tween portrait session {Overlook Park in Lancaster county}

I really wanted to write this blog post and I am excited that the edits on these images are done! This was a new opportunity for me and a pretty cool way to give back to the community. I am in tons and tons of Facebook photography groups and in one particular group, I saw that another photographer needed help so I jumped at the chance to assist however I could! Kate Martin is a fellow photographer from Lancaster County and thought of this whole idea. Kate planned to host a photo session for all of her church youth group girls. She has been working with the girls to teach them self esteem and thought that what better way to show these girls that they are beautiful on the outside than to help them get pampered for a photo shoot. We wanted the girls to see their images and feel beautiful and confident. I would have loved to have this when I was in my awkward teenage years! But since it was a huge undertaking the day of the photo shoot, Kate needed another photographer to divide and conquer.  There were nine girls total and the park we used was huge so if there had only been one photographer, it would have taken a lot longer. On one Saturday evening in April, we teamed up at Overlook Park in Lancaster. I was happy to help to offer my services and it was a super cool way to stretch my abilities. My daughter came with me to watch and all the girls thought was she super cute! These pictures in the blog post were all taken by myself. Kate also took lots and lots of images which the parents were able to view through an online gallery. I really enjoyed doing this project. Older kids listen a lot better than little kids too, ha. Hope everyone loves these! Thank you for stopping.

See? Gorgeous and model ready, ha
