Family photography Harrisburg PA

I love shooting family photography Harrisburg PA. I had so much fun working with this super sweet, easy going family! The Fenwick family contacted me last winter to set up their family photography session for this spring. I love how excited they were to have their family memories captured. Mother Nature may have pushed us back a few weeks with what seemed like an eternal winter followed by RAIN, RAIN, RAIN...but once she got her act together, we were able to capture some beautiful images for this family to cherish forever!

If you've been following me, you may already know just how passionate I am about helping my clients dress their walls of their homes with portraits of their family. Together, the Fenwick's and I put together two beautiful walls for them to enjoy and cherish every time they walk into their home. This is by far, one of my favorite parts of my portrait process! When my clients are able to see exactly how their family photos will look, framed on their walls, before they make their investment. I love taking all the guesswork out of this process, so that when it's time for me to hang their portraits they already know they're going to LOVE them!

It's no secret that one of my absolute favorite heirloom products that I offer are framed prints by The Organic Bloom! I can create something for everyone with these beautiful frames. I love them so much that my own home is decked wall to wall with The Organic Bloom Frames. These frames can truly be quite simple or ornate to meet anyone's style!

My favorite season of all is in full swing! I love, love, love summer portraits! I love everything about shooting family photo sessions in the summer. There's nothing like evening summer light, warm weather and greens with pops of color. If there was only one season I could choose to photography my own child it would be summer! Send me a quick message to start planning your family's summer portrait session!

Lucas {Mechanicsburg Pa Children’s Portraits}

It's an honest fact that i'm passionate about creating children's portraits...I'm even more excited about it when it's for someone I love!

Lucas is a special little guy to me.  He belongs to one of my nearest and dearest friends.  I love watching my all of my friend's babies grow up and being able to capture these special phases for them to cherish forever.

We couldn't have had a more perfect evening for his fall portrait session. It was such a late fall with all the warm temperatures (that we're now paying for- with these FREEZING temps!) and were so lucky that his November shoot was bursting with brilliant colors!

One of my favorite parts of my portrait process is being able to show my clients how their finished images will look on the walls of their own home. Of course, my absolute favorite product that I offer and love show show are The The Organic Bloom frames.  Lucas' portraits look so beautiful finished and framed in Organic Bloom frames. Portraits of the ones you love are meant to be printed and displayed on the walls of your home where they can be cherished and enjoyed everyday!

Fall Family Portraits {Mechanicsburg, Pa Family Photography}

Fall family portraits are in full swing and I'm super excited to share this adorable family!  It's not so convincing with the very warm temperatures lately, but OCTOBER is here.  We totally could have been fooled that it's Fall on the day of this family's session.  It was hot, humid and the mosquitos were in fierce attack mode!  These guys handled it well...especially Miss Lucy.  When I say that she is the best baby, I am totally 100% serious! She joined her mama for her consultation and reveal/ordering session in addition to their portrait session.  She is a trooper who doesn't make a single fuss.  Just an easy going little girl! And a little girl who loves her puppy... I'm sure many of you might agree that babies and dogs make for the best pictures!Fall Family Portraits Mechanicsburg Pa Family Photography Camp Hill Family Pictures_4Fall Family Portraits Mechanicsburg Pa Family Photography Camp Hill Family Pictures_5Fall Family Portraits Mechanicsburg Pa Family Photography Camp Hill Family Pictures_3Fall Family Portraits Mechanicsburg Pa Family Photography Camp Hill Family Pictures_1Fall Family Portraits Mechanicsburg Pa Family Photography Camp Hill Family Pictures_2

It's no doubt that Fall is the absolute most popular time of year for family portraits! If you know a family photographer, then you likely know that we get a little crazy this time of year! That's not an understatement! Haha! I'd love to create some forever memories for your family with custom portraits and heirloom artwork!

Gibson Family Portrait Session

There is no doubt that I love to photograph The Gibson family portrait session each year! I can say with all honesty that this family is very special to me.  This is our 7th photo session together!  I first met them when I photographed Taylor, their oldest (and only!) daughter for the cover of Central Penn Parent Magazine when she was in middle school.  Now, she is about to begin her first year in college!  One of my absolute favorite things about being a portrait photographer is the opportunity to develop a relationship with families and capture how they grow and change over the years.  This year, the Gibson clan grew by one more adorable little guy!  All three little boys are extremely blessed to have a big sis like Taylor! I don't think I've ever met a big sister who is anything like her.  The love she has for her little brothers is without a doubt, something very, very special!  Each year, I walk away from their session with a smile on my face, and my heart full.  The Gibsons are a family who truly love one another AND they know how to have FUN together!

Portraits Of Your Family Are Invaluable

I'm on a roll! This NEVER happens that I am editing and sharing images of my own child twice in one week!  As I dedicate my life to capturing and preserving memories for my clients and their families, I realize just how important it is to share the value of portraits in my own life as well.  This is the little girl who lights up my world everyday.  She the person that gives me purpose.  The main reason I get up everyday and do what I do.  The memories I capture of her at this age and every age (past and future) mean everything to me.  Images of my daughter are what I have to remember her at all of the stages of her life as she grows, changes, and moves on to something new.  I could never imagine not having the printed memories I have of her to look back on.  Printed portraits of your family are invaluable.  They will mean everything someday!

Summer Memories

It's not often that I share personal images, but I think it is important to do sometimes. Especially summer memories! This is the little person who holds my heart. She's growing up so fast yet when I see these images it reminds me of her pure, young, sweet spirit.  I was so blessed to be able to spend lots of time enjoying my daughter this summer and creating these memories at our favorite place.  I hate to think these beach days are over and we're almost ready to wrap up the summer and send our babies back to school.  The end of this season is always the most dreaded part of the year to me!  I will cherish the memories I have from the summer 17' with my little girl forever and ever.  I know I say it ALL the time, but please stop growing up, Madalyn! Newborn Photography baby photographer Mechanicsburg PA Newborn photographer_0038

 

The memories you capture of your family in print will mean absolutely everything to you someday. I'd love to work with you to create something special.

Langan Family Portrait Session

I look forward to the Langan family portrait session every spring! I began capturing their family memories in 2013.  I've been blessed to have the opportunity to watch this family grow and tell their story through portraits each year.  I can truly say I cherish the continuing relationship and bond I share with my clients.  This family is always so wonderful to work with. Right from the beginning planning stages all the way to when their family portraits are up on their walls. There is nothing I cherish more than a client to who values love, family and the memories they make together. Newborn Photography baby photographer Mechanicsburg PA Newborn photographer_0024

Together we chose images to create a beautiful collection of framed art for the walls in the Langan's home. I think mom loves The Organic Bloom custom framed portraits just as much as I do! The Organic Bloom frames are truly one of my most favorite items in the collection of heirloom products that I have to offer. Newborn Photography baby photographer Mechanicsburg PA Newborn photographer_0027

These are two of my most favorite people ever! This beautiful woman will celebrate her first Mother's Day with her little guy in a couple weeks. She's by far one of the most kind, funny, strong and selfless people I know. I'm blessed to be able to call her my friend. The little guy is just an added bonus in my life as well! His smiles can make anyone smile even on the worst of days. He's such a happy little guy and I absolutely cherish watching him grow! Portraits with your little ones and family are one of the most invaluable investments you can make in life. Freeze these precious moments in time as they grow way too quickly!
