Family and Event Photographer Servicing Carlisle, Mechanicsburg, Dillsburg, Harrisburg, and Central Pennsylvania
Photographs are beautiful little windows frozen in time that you’re sure to cherish for years to come. Your photography should tell your story and fill you with memories that help you relive that moment over and over again. Whether it’s the year your big kid skinned their knees or is missing their front tooth, the experience of carrying your little one inside of you, capturing your newest family member and all of those quickly changing little details, or walking your child down the aisle to start the next chapter in their new life, photographs are timeless, and become treasured family keepsakes.
Your family will never look exactly the same way again. Family pictures help to preserve the fleeting moments of the way your youngest cracks up when you sing their favorite nursery rhyme. It preserves the way that this summer was the turning point and your middle child is absolutely way "too cool" to smile for pictures right now. It might mark the last time your family is together under one roof before your oldest graduates and embarks on their adventure into adulthood for the first time. It doesn't have to be a big event or a major milestone, documenting your family IS the big event, it IS the important milestone. Treasure it.
Ask any seasoned parent and they'll tell you the same thing - your little one changes so drastically those first few precious weeks. I truly believe newborn pictures are precious and absolutely essential. Welcoming your new addition is such a massive event in your lives that it only makes sense to make sure it gets documented. Once the new parent fog lifts you'll want to look back on those beautiful pictures of your sweet baby to reminisce of the beginning of your journey together.
Pregnancy is such a remarkable time in your life and your family's story. It's a time of the most rapid change in the shortest time, and highlights the expectation and excitement of the adventure to come. I have so many mothers tell me they hate the way they look or feel (and believe me, I've been there - no one likes to feel bloated and uncomfortable) but once the baby arrives it never fails that they look back on the time when they carried their little one inside of them with wistful fondness of feeling those little kicks and hiccups.
This is it, the beginning of your story together. You've planned for months (or years) culminating in the ultimate celebration of the start of your lives as one. When your gorgeous dress gets preserved and boxed, your bouquet wilts, and the cake is eaten, the only tangible item you'll have from your big day are your rings and your pictures. You'll spend more time with your photographer the day of your wedding than any other vendor, and the memories captured will be cherished not only by you, but by your children and grandchildren. It's the start of your family's story, and every epic tale deserves to have its origin captured.
