A Field, Farm, and Family Fun - New Berlin, PA - Family Photographer

Jen, Matt, Wyatt and Peyton spent a warm and cheerful sunset with me at the Mapes View Dairy Farm in New Berlin, PA for some spirited and family centered pictures to update their family tree.  From the warm and golden toned sunset, to the bright green of the corn-field, all the way to through to the firefly lit night and sparkler handed kids, the farm land family photos are something I will never forget. With their busy farm life schedule, fairs, home renovations, and co-parenting the kiddos with their mom, family photos have been one of the last things on anyone's mind.  When opportunity for photos fell in their laps, and Jen pounced. New photos would be the perfect accents ...

The early evening, mother and daughter session I did with Nicole and Orianna on the grounds of Gypsy Pines Photography in Mifflinburg, PA was so touching and heart-warming.  With sunset approaching, and rays of light adding a glow to their skin and shine to their smiles, there was an adorable loving connection between this mother and her growing toddler which will be hard to match.  They came fully prepared for everyone to know they were a cute little duo with matching nail-polish, jewelry, and even color-coordinated dresses! Having a blended family, Nicole and her late husband gathered all the children up for the holidays to have portraits done a few years ago.  Since ...

Tama and Jason's family session at sunset, on the grounds of Gypsy Pines Photography in Mifflinburg, PA was absolutely breathtaking. Their last portraits were when they married, so it has been several years, and they decided it was time to add to their collection for when they share their family story.  When Tama and I first sat down and talked about portraits, the idea was to create a fun wall series of Leila somewhere in the home, and to do images of Tama for her Yoga Instruction with Inspire Yoga and Massage Studio.   Walking through the Buttorff's home with her, picturing their final renovations and placement of the few wall decorations they had in mind, we both looked at ...

Summer is one of my favorite seasons (but if we had to through, I would tell you they are all my favorite because each has high points).  The days are long, family and friends are taking vacations and time off, there is a multitude of things to do everywhere, I get to spend a whole month with Bear and Buttercup adventuring, it is high time for swimming pools and sprinklers, my list could go on for days.  As we realize the start of school, work and fall is right around the corner I am hit with an intense desire to make the absolute most of summer. Each day of summer needs to jam-packed with non-stop, adventure chronicling fun.  My reasons? Buttercup only spends 1 month ...
