Family photo shootsmake memories. The moments of are timestamped and magically saved. I love making kids giggle and get parents involved. I love freezing moments of pure joy. And when you look back- it will always make you think - where did the time go.
Ive been lucky to photograph these three little sisters, since toe oldest one was only a month old. And seeing family grow throughout the years just gives me this amazing feeling of freezing time. Like saving little slices of life, little moments of joy, and sometimes even little moments of chaos as I'm trying to get three little girls peek at my camera and smile.
I just love fall family photo sessions at pumpkin farms and cider mills. While I've settled in Clarkston, MI, I wonder to PA quite a bit. Last time there I loved the Schramm Farms. Hay bales painted as beloved cartoon characters, corn maze, petting zoo and treat stands for parents and kids alike. Recently they have expanded and added bakery and even winery. While the weather did not look that promising for a fall family photo shoot, we brought a blanket for little sisters to sit on, and luckily it only started to drizzle when we were about to leave. While photographing families, I try to get a few shots of just the parents. I find that parents are the pillars of the family, and sometimes in all the years raising kids, showing of their accomplishments and documenting memories, there are no photos of just the couple. Showing their love and commitment not just to their kids, but also to each other is great memory to capture. I was also happy to capture a tender moment of the big sister snuggling with her dad while grabbing some photos of little one . Some of the most precious memories are the ones in a quiet moment next to the photo shoot, and I love when I'm able to notice them and capture them
