Photography Because Mystery Blog Circle | Philadelphia Fine Art Photographer

This month, I opted to capture my themed photos at one of my favorite getaway locations: my in-law’s farm in Cartersville, VA.  Even though I’m a total city girl at heart, there’s something about the slower pace, amazing sunsets, and gorgeous views that make me love my time on the farm!

Each month, the ladies over at Photography Because post a new blog circle with a specific theme for you to guess. Can you guess this month’s theme? Keep clicking through the other talented ladies’ blog posts and then come back to leave a comment with your answer! Next in line is Jayne Cho.

Family Mini Sessions | Chestnut Hill Family Photographer

Time to start thinking about back-to-school shopping, cooler weather, and booking your Fall Mini Session!  Mini sessions are a great chance to update your annual family photos for holiday cards, gifts, and home decor…all for a fraction of the cost of a full one-hour session.  This fall, I am offering a limited number of mini sessions on three dates.  These will be my last mini sessions offered in 2013, so act fast before they fill up!  Please see all the details below:

Why Choose Custom Photography? | Chestnut Hill Family Photographer

I recently posed this question to a few of my favorite repeat customers:

“Why do you choose custom photography over the other standard portrait/mall studios out there?”

I loved their responses so much, I just had to share!

“When I had my daughter I decided that I wanted to have a picture taken every month. We would go to a standard studio and have our pic taken on a plain white background. I did this for the first 6 months and hung them in my house. I quickly noticed that although the studio captured a smile, they did not capture the essence of our life and family. The pictures didn’t say much about who we were. I decided it was worth it to spend more money less frequently to receive pictures that really captured us without being posed or handed odd props. I love that my favorite family photos have all been captured while we enjoy doing what we normally do! Playing outside, jumping on the bed, snuggling, and laughing… Those are the memories I want to hold on to. Lucy delivers just that. She truly captures a snapshot of life in the moment. Most people can snap a pic of a kid smiling awkwardly (say cheese!) but a truly different smile is captured by Lucy when she gets your kids smiling and engaged naturally… Their happiness is captured in that snapshot and their faces speak volumes of love, contentment, and happiness in each and every photograph.” – Liz R.

“I prefer custom photography because I love the emotion that can be captured from a custom session, and feel you did a great job each time with my family!” – Karinne L.

“Many studios create a ‘stock’ look and have awkward poses, matching outfits, and forced smiles. We wanted NONE of that! We wanted photographs that conveyed the spirit of our family and a photographer who wasn’t afraid of the shots between shots: the candid moments that characterize our daily life. Lucy had us feeling comfortable and acting natural the whole time; it was almost as if we were having a family playdate and just happened to have a photographer there to document it. (The photo below captures our spirit perfectly: my husband’s loving thoughtfulness, my daughter’s snuggly gregariousness, and my joyful radiance. And this was taken after our family had declared the session over due to the cold wind and went ahead and put on warm jackets!)” – Callie S.
Thank you all for your incredibly kind responses!  I am beyond thrilled to have shared such meaningful moments with you and am honored to continue watching each of your families as they grow! <3

One of the best perks of my job is getting to see families year after year as they continue to grow. I loved meeting up with this sweet family of soon-to-be-four again to celebrate baby #2 on the way! Congrats G. Family!! <3

Letters to Our Sons, June 2013 | Philadelphia Family Photographer

Dear Theo,
Today is your third birthday. What a big boy you are! We are so proud of what a bright, funny, talented boy you have become! To celebrate your birthday, we went to Dutch Wonderland over the weekend, and we will be making a special dinner of homemade pizza and birthday cake for just the three of us tonight. I love that you honestly believe we took a trip into outer space on the rocketship ride at Dutch Wonderland. Your sense of imagination and willingness to embrace your inner storyteller makes me the proudest mommy I could possibly be!

This year is going to bring along a lot of changes and growth for you and for our family. Pretty soon, you will be potty trained (fingers crossed!), going to preschool, and by the end of 2013 you will become a Big Brother! I have no doubts that you will excel at every single one of these new roles. I love that you are already such a nurturing soul, always cuddling and caring for your stuffed animal “babies”. Your new little sibling is going to be one lucky baby to have such a loving, protective big brother as you!

This month, I wanted to make sure I captured all of the wonderful things that make you so special, so I decided to “interview” you at lunch the other day to ask about all of your favorite things at age 3. Of course, I know that most of these answers would be different if I had asked at dinnertime (when we ate green beans instead of cucumbers), or if I had asked you these questions a few weeks ago when your favorite Superhero was Iron Man…but I’m happy to have recorded a small snapshot of your life even if it only records just a few fleeting moments in that ever-expanding and creative mind of yours.

Love you so much,

Letters to Our Sons, May 2013 | Philadelphia Children’s Photographer

Dear Theo,
Another month has passed and no matter how hard I try to make the time slow down, it just won’t! Your body and mind (and hair!) just keep on growing and I am amazed every single day at what a bright, fun, and happy little boy you are becoming.

2013-05-14_0002.jpg

You’ve become much more of a homebody this past month, as we’re no longer bound to any particular schedules to get us out of the house during the work week. It’s just the two of us and our daily whims that keep us going while daddy is at work, and you seem absolutely content to stay inside and play with your toys all day long (no matter how much I try to coax you to help me run errands or even go to the playground!). You LOVE your superheroes, cars, and toy animals, and when you’re not crashing your monster trucks into elaborately constructed block towers, then you are undoubtedly assigning me to help you on a Secret Mission to rescue a trapped baby animal under a pile of pillows. You’ve gotten really good at puzzles lately too, and no matter how full our bookshelves become, you still love diving into all the new books at the library.

This evening after a walk with your daddy, you came home and told me that you brought home a new friend, an imaginary puma that you named Penguin. Your imagination continues to astound me, and I love hearing all of the intricate stories you concoct! I can’t believe that you will be THREE the next time I write this monthly letter.  The time has gone by so very fast. <3

H Family | Pottstown Baby Photographer

Several weeks ago, I had the truly unique experience of photographing six-month-old QUADRUPLETS! I have to admit, I was pretty nervous going into it…but looking back it will definitely go down as one of my all-time favorite family sessions ever! These four sweet babies were just sooooo well-behaved and incredibly photogenic, and their parents were so relaxed and fun to be around, the session honestly could not have gone smoother if I’d tried! 🙂 Special shout out to my awesome assistant for the day, Alexa!
