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?

Genesis is Two {Mifflintown, Pa} Children’s Photographer

When my daughter was born, she had a camera in her face practically every day.  I did monthly sessions with her and she always did awesome.  Around nine months her attention span during her sessions deteriorated so I started incorporating food.  For her 9 month pictures she was a little baker…

Since her daddy is part Italian, for her ten month session I decided to incorporate some pasta… (and I got to use her super adorable chefs hat AGAIN… I love etsy!)IMG_8540 copy-adv IMG_8575 copy-adv

Eleven Months was right around Valentine’s day… So I found some candy hearts to keep her interested in pictures… (I had to watch her with the candy hearts because she still had yet to have ANY teeth!! lol)IMG_9971 copy-adv IMG_9959 copy-adv IMG_0025 copy-adv

And of course for her one year session I did a smash cake session for her… Funny story… she preferred to play with the hungry caterpillar cake topper than she actually wanted to eat the cake!IMG_1550 copy-adv IMG_1731 copy-adv

After her monthly photos… I really only focused on more snapshots of her.  She basically completely ignored me anytime I wanted her to look at the camera… (the little booger!)  Occasionally I got a posed photo of her but they were few and far between.

Genesis turned 2 on March 3rd.  Finally at the end of April I decided to take her out and see how she did for pictures.  And here is the result:447A2941 copy-adv 447A2949 copy-adv Collage copy-adv 447A2970 copy-adv Collage  copy 447A3064 copy-adv447A3086-2 copy-adv
