The Venderhyden Family
A lot of my newborn session clients ask me when the best time to take photos is. Because I don’t do composite shots like hands under babies chins (big eye roll over here), it doesn’t matter to me how “posable” baby is because I don’t pose the baby. I stress to my clients that the best time to do a newborn session is WHEN THEY FEEL READY TO DO A NEWBORN SESSION. Can you imagine just giving birth, feeling so overwhelmed and exhausted, and then you have to rush to get your house clean for a photographer to come over?
I kicked off this wedding season with Ashley and Michael’s engagement session in Mifflinburg, PA. I met Ashley went she mentored under me last fall, and was honored again when she asked to photograph her wedding this August. Michael and her were so fun, laid back, and laughed basically the whole time, and it felt more like the three of us were hanging out rather than shooting (as it should!).
We started our session hanging with their pup and on the porch of the beeeeeauuuuutttiful old home they just bought, then moved on to Ashley’s family’s creekside property, their favorite field, and then ended the night with ice cream twists!
Geralee and Luke are clients turned dear friends, and I was thrilled when they asked me to shoot their first anniversary session.
