Today was my last shoot before Christmas and I wanted to get these up for Tara and Chris before Chris had to go on leave again.
I met Tara and Chris at Long’s Park despite the rain. I told them we would shoot no matter what since the wedding is in a few weeks. Then they take off for California. We were very lucky with the weather. The rain stopped for the short time we were out and it wasn’t too cold. Here a just a few from today. Stay tuned for their wedding in January!
We will be out of the office Dec. 24 – January 2nd. If you have something scheduled with us, don’t panic. But, otherwise, we will answer emails and calls once we are back. Thanks so much for a wonderful year! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!! Stay tuned for exciting news and HUGE announcements!!
We are a little late on her 2 year pics…only a few months. Here is my favorite from Monday
Wedding Photography, Demystified
I have joined this awesome resource along with a ton of others from around the country.
There is an huge gallery of photos and a help guide for mostly every photography related question you could have, answered by photographers.
A couple weeks ago, we put up our Christmas tree. It has been a few years since we had a real tree and this year was going to be no different. I just don’t like to clean up the needles, or remember to water it. I needed to get a new fake tree this year…. Ours was a hand me down from my Mom, (She gave it to us when she decided she wanted the pre-lit one from QVC. ) and I think was the ugliest fake tree ever. The branches were spread so far apart, that even after re-arranging them, you had to add filler ornaments just so you couldn’t see though to the other side. Plus, it was so tall, that we had to bend the top of it down and had to put a Santa hat on the top because no angel or star would fit.
I went to Kmart since they were on sale and I can’t see spending a boat load of money on a tree….. This baby was pre-lit and came in three pieces! I was so excited when I got it together and turned on the lights! Then I hear….” Why are all the light white?” What? Are you kidding me? I got an all white light tree! I never even thought about looking to see if it had colored lights. But, it was too late. I was not taking this bad boy back. It is nice though. It really brightens up the room. We still don’t have an angel for the top….
The kids had a blast decorating. I turned on the Christmas music like we do every year when we decorate. Kobe wanted to hang everything, and Braden put everything all in one spot on the bottom. I just left them go. Here are 2 shots of my Christmas joy!
Last night, Krisha and I headed over to the Holiday GTG at the Wiebner’s Gallery. They have this incredible space in Lancaster where they meet with their clients and will soon have their offices. There were a ton of photographers from the area and a little beyond that were invited for a small gathering. It is always so nice to be able to get together like this and share stories, ideas and to get get out! Here are a few from the night.
In honor of all my past brides who have just let me know that they are expecting…yes, there are quite a few… I am offering 10% off all Little Spouts packages. These are packages that document your baby from birth to 1 year. Please call the office, or email if you would like more information or to book a Little Sprouts package.
My last Christmas session was on Saturday. The Ding family came in for some group shots and each kiddo individually. It always makes me laugh when myself and the parents have to do the silliest things to get kids to smile! I got to use my new chairs too!! Here are just a few shots from the session….
We are finishing up the last bit of portraits for the holiday season….
The Schuckers came in last week with their sweet dog Maddie. Poor thing kept slipping on the floor. Here are a few from our session.
I travelled to Emma’s house on Thursday for her 6th month session and family pics for the holiday. I won’t show their family shot so they can surprise their family with their card. Here are a few from our day.
