Mommy & Me Limited Edition Sessions {Lewistown, Pa} Photographer

Calling all Mamas out there!!!  Let’s be honest for a moment.  Aside from “selfies” from your cell phone… when was the last time you were in a photo with your kiddos?  A few months… over a year?

Seriously, figure it out for a moment… I’ll wait.

Now, when was the last time you’ve actually printed out one of those photos?  Has it been even longer?  My guess is it probably has been.

There are two things I’ve been discovering over the last few years since I began my own business.  Women are very self conscious about being in front of the camera.  And don’t get me wrong… I understand that.  But if you knew how many times I’ve heard “after I lose some weight”…

Let me tell you something…

Your kids don’t care what your pant size is… they want you in those memories with them.  Here is a FANTASTIC blog post from another photographer about just this.

The other thing I’m discovering: people rarely print their photos.  It gets put in a drawer and on their to do list.  Sometimes it happens but more than likely, it doesn’t.  More often than not, the photos end up on Facebook wall and Instagram feed but not on the walls of your home.

Ladies, we have got to start doing better at this.  We need to make a conscious effort to get in those photos with our children AND we need to print those memories.

Twenty years from now… do you want to be showing your kids photos on your Facebook wall or on the walls of your home?

Reinford Sneak Peek {Mifflintown, Pa} Family Photographer

Dara’s mom, Paula, is an AMAZING local photographer — she did my maternity pictures when I was pregnant with our youngest daughter.  So what an honor and privilege it was to be able to photograph her daughter’s family (and a little nerve wracking too! lol!)  I had such a blast photographing this beautiful family! Enjoy the sneak peek below!!! ❤

Smith Sneak Peek {Mifflintown, Pa} Family Photographer

I had so much fun last night photographing this beautiful family!  And seriously, the kids did AMAZING!  We were done within 40 minutes… seriously insane!  🙂

Mom and I had been keeping an eye on the orchard, patiently waiting for the flowers to bloom.  And we actually had to reschedule their session due to a surprise rash on Slone’s face.   Always seems to be something before pictures, am I right?! I’m so glad we rescheduled because the orchard was beautiful!!!

Enjoy the sneak peek below!  (And if you are interested in a quick session while the flowers are still blooming, I’ve included info on the minis I am having at the end of this blog post!)

Murphy Sneak Peek {Mifflintown, Pa} Children’s Photographer

Penny and Ellie came to visit me yesterday and, can I say, I had SO much fun!  Penny was an incredibly fast crawler!  lol!   She kept both mom and me on our toes!

Mom and I had exchanged texts back and forth for a few weeks planning outfits and different ideas for this session… and I think everything looked PERFECT!

Stouffer Sneak Peek {Lewistown, Pa} Children’s Photographer

Can I just say, one of my favorite ages to photograph is one year old’s… because that meaaaaannnnssss…. SMASH CAKE SESSIONS!!!! 🙂

Seriously guys… who doesn’t love digging in and making the biggest mess possible.  This cutie was beyond quick!  He got me right in the face with a handful of icing.  (I think there is still some icing stuck in my glasses, actually.)

Now of course, we did some pictures before the smash cake… and he really made me work for those smiles.  And mental note: He does NOT like my purple bunny.  😉 But by the end, I had him laughing and all in all, we got some great shots!

Enjoy your sneak peek, guys!  I had a blast!
