Sheaffer Sneak Peek {Newport, Pa} Senior Photographer

When Kolby’s mom contacted me several months ago and mentioned that she wanted to bring a vehicle and motocross bike, I was beyond excited!  We waited ever-so-patiently for the leaves to turn and I got a call from her one day saying that the leaves were at their peak so we had to moved up the appointment.   We could not have had a more perfect day.  The temperature was wonderful, the leaves were perfect!  And we got some AMAZING shots!

Imes Family Sneak Peek {Newport, Pa} Children’s Photographer

I had high hopes for warmer weather the morning of this session… we even pushed the session back an hour but it still was pretty chilly.  But the kids did an absolutely amazing job!  Enjoy the sneak peek!

Dad was working hard the day of the session, so mom brought his boots along for us to do a “family picture”.  It turned out PERFECT!

Mommy & Me Minis

God bless my husband but he is pretty darn clueless when it comes to taking photos…. (to my standard).  I’ll have him stand where I’ll be standing for the picture and I’ll get the camera settings perfect… (I’m not a control freak or anything… I SWEAR!)  I would say 50% of the time, he comes out with a decent photo.  Yaaaaayyyyy!!!  The other 50% my daughter is either no longer interested in picture time or my husband focused the camera to the background… or it is just overall not very flattering.  I have so many great photos of my husband and daughter but the pictures of Genesis and I are few and far between…

Thankfully I have a photographer friend  (If you had photos taken by me in the past, you may have met her!!) who helps me get those FLATTERING photos… and Genesis is actually not a blur from running away!

This is just my funny and longwinded way of saying I’m holding Mommy & Me Minis again this year!  And I promise that your children will not be blurs and you will look FANTASTIC!

If you still aren’t convinced you want to have your picture taken, make sure you check out last years blog post here.

And to prove that my husband can take a decent photo… here are two GREAT photos!  (I did have to crop these like crazy but they are fantastic!) And prior to posting this, I did show my husband what I wrote about him… his response, “You should post some of my bad pictures so they know you aren’t lying!” lol!
