Garden Session - Summertime- John Rudy Park

I was trying to think of the last time I blogged anything- it has been a while! I met Elizabeth and her two sweet kids one evening at John Rudy Park for a session in the garden. I wanted to soak up what was left of summer and use the beauty around us and it did not disappoint! I am so glad Elizabeth was able to meet me! I worked with her once before and this weekend I am lucky again and get to photograph her whole family! Not only was it a blessing to have great weather like we did- it’s also lovely when your models are so adorable. Elizabeth- you looked beautiful!

The first photo was taken two years ago - BABIES :(

Colin was so handsome!

I loved the light in this little beauty’s hair!

This might be one of my favorite images from the whole summer. There is a vine at John Rudy and I had Claire stand in a way that you can’t tell the arbor is actually a huge circle! It worked out and resulted in a gorgeous photo!

I just think photos of Moms and their kids are so special!

For a few years I was scared of the lighting here at the garden. I thought the sun going down the other side of the trees was going to make the garden dark. Nope- you just adjust your camera settings. I hope to offer garden sessions next year!!

Elizabeth- I am so glad you could meet me and let me take these. You all looked so amazing!!

As of now I am almost all booked up for the fall sessions at Farquhar Park. Please contact me if you would be interested in a session at Brookside Park!

Senior Pictures- Central York Class of 2020

I am so happy to show these images to you guys!! Maddy is a senior this year and wanted me to take her portraits!! I was so flattered to be asked to do these! Maddy teaches at my kids’ dance studio and my kids love her. She is such a delight to be around and always so happy, so when she asked me to take her senior portraits, I knew we would get lots of good shots. I knew as long as I got the lighting right and my camera settings perfect that she’d do the rest and shine! She is so photogenic.

Displayed below are the first set of Maddy’s senior portraits. We almost got rained out that night but the rain stopped and it couldn’t have been more perfect. Since she has danced her whole life, we are planning on taking more pictures later on at other time as well with her ballet shoes.

If you need senior portraits, the best time to do them is now, right before your senior year.

Fourth of July Children's Session

Hi and welcome back! I am just sharing some recent photos. I love to think of special photo shoots to do with my kids for the holidays because it’s fun to come up with concepts which I can then show the world! I took these at a park where we had a nice warm sunset and grass field, perfect for some Independence Day portraits, and I am finally showing them off! I bought an antique flag and antique Coca Cola bottles. Taking these photos was a lot of fun!

I am always interested in doing fun photo shoots such as this! I also tagged Coke on Facebook hoping they would share but they didn’t. Oh Well, lol!

If you are considering doing a special photo session with me, I would love that! My kids had so much fun running! Just two kids during summer; what could be better?

Children's session at a crimson field

Hello again! So glad you stopped by! Today’s post features my kids on a photography play-date! My friend told me about this field and we hopped in the car and met her family one night in May. Oh my gosh you guys, there was red clover everywhere, as far as the eye could see! I’ve never seen anything like it and could not get enough of this scenery. Set on a cute farm, this field was certainly an attraction for people to come and enjoy a unique experience. I will just show you most of the pictures because it was so hard to narrow them down! I am always looking for new scenic views to photograph. As a child and family photographer, it makes me happy to find new places.

Our kids met that night for the first time and had a blast!! I love the light in their hair.

New best friends! I love the pink and red around them.

Cherry Blossom children session in York PA

From time to time I find those unique spots nobody else knows about, and I kind of feel like I’m in my own Fairytale! This spot is an exceptional place that transforms into a pink wonderland. My first image was actually taken four years ago and I still share it because I can’t re-create it ever, since my kids were babies back then. Enjoy!

This year I was fortunate enough to get back to this spot with my kids. It’s just a wonderful experience to see all this pink around you. And fun for kids because they get to pick up some petals. I love the backlighting here which is why my kids didn’t move around much. That light was yummy! Thank you for checking out my blog once again, hope you enjoy!

Those green orbs are lens flares! Pretty cool!

The next photo was taken on a different day…the lighting and coloring is very different!
