  • Welcome!

    Thank you so much to all my wonderful clients over the past 7 years. My family has recently moved out of state and as a result I have closed my photography business in Lancaster.

Christmas Mini Sessions, Part 1 * Lititz Portrait Photographer

Throughout the month of November, I received numerous requests asking if I would be doing Christmas mini sessions.  Initially I didn’t plan on it – it is such a busy time of year and I had nothing prepared.   And, to be honest, I often have a hard time thinking ahead when it comes to holidays.  I just want to wait and enjoy Thanksgiving, not rush ahead to Christmas!  But, such is the life of a photographer….so, at the last minute I decided to jump on the bandwagon and see if I could put together a couple Christmas setups.

After putting pulling together what I thought was a pretty cute rustic Christmas setup, I threw my kids in whatever Christmas-y clothes I could find and used them as my marketing. :)   Here’s a link if you want to see them…they are pretty cute. :)

And, even though it was last minute, I was able to photograph a whole crew of adorable kiddos – ranging from 3 weeks – 7 years old!  So many adorable portraits!  Here are just a few – I’ll be posting more over the next couple days!

Sweet Baby Girl * Lititz Newborn Photographer

This sweet little girl was a joy to photograph. We did some beautiful outdoor shots for both maternity and newborn. Her parents’ favorite wedding picture was on a beautiful antique red couch. So, Mommy had the great idea to use the red couch at her maternity and newborn sessions as well. What a beautiful story those three images will create when hung on a wall together!

Baby girl’s nursery is pink and teal, so mommy requested images that would coordinate with those lovely colors. I’m always happy to tailor a session to a client’s favorite color choices!

It was a last minute decision, but I’m really excited to be doing Christmas mini sessions this year!  And yes, you will have them in time for Christmas!
