Fall family on the farm! | Foxburg Pennsylvania family photography

When I initially chatted with this beautiful mom about setting up a family session, she said she really wanted to take advantage of the fall colors.  So I suggested early October, which is USUALLY when everything is amazingly bright and beautiful.  And then she said she was working on getting permission to do the session at a gorgeous location.  This really had all the ingredients for the most perfect fall photography session!

Well....as they say....the best laid plans......

It ended up being a very green weekend as our fall colors were much later than usual.  And the day that we scheduled ended up with impending rain!  And with busy schedules on both ends....trying to reschedule quickly is next to impossible.  So we crossed fingers and hoped for the best.

Well, things started off perfectly....until we got about 15 minutes of shooting in and then there was rain.  And more rain.  And still more rain.  And not just a little rain...it was a literal downpour.  So we tried to continue the session by using overhangs working around the weather.  Fortunately, by the end of the session, we finally saw some sun and finished our beautiful session.  

In spite of the challenges, this was still one of my most favorite fall sessions!  Thank you all so much!

A Saturday Morning | Lifestyle family photography

Last fall I spent a cold (and first snowy day!) of the season meeting this family.  Mom just wanted a simple indoor session of her sweet little girls in their own little world complete with pjs, fuzzy slippers, book reading and bed jumping!  And I thought that sounded pretty much PERFECT!  

These two girls are also getting ready to welcome a new baby sister to the family soon so we spent some time hanging out in the new nursery.  

I just love these types of sessions as they are so much fun for EVERYONE...especially the kiddos!  I know that most (all?) little munchkins usually are fine during a typical photo session for, well...5 minutes?  HA!  But honestly, getting the littlest kiddos to cooperate and be happy during a session is often really hard. However, with a lifestyle session, the kids get to...just BE A KID! 

But onto the photos!  

Meet Rowan! | Greenville, Pennsylvania Newborn Photography

Well - this is a session from many months ago....It was also a session I did only a few days prior to our big trip out west!  So that is my excuse and I am sticking to it!  

This family is one of my favorites!  You may remember them from the past as I have worked with them quite a few times before...(did I ever mention how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE repeat clients!!??).   And when they told me they were expecting a new baby girl - I was beyond excited!

I love newborn sessions - it is so much fun to document the arrival of a new baby into a family.   These first few weeks  - when everything is so new and exciting - are so fleeting and happen so quickly.  And it is so easy to forget those days in the blur of the excitement and sleeplessness.  I am always so happy to be able to try to capture some of those moments.

Thank you so much Amy, BJ and, of course, Paxton!

And if you are expecting a new little one and want to discuss setting up your newborn session - it is never too early!  Please CONTACT ME and I would love to chat!!
