Reese Family - Lehigh Valley Family Photographer

The promise of ice cream at the end is always a good happiness motivator during shoots and one I wholeheartedly endorse. :) And it's especially fun when I get to tag along for the ice cream part! This was my second shoot with this sweet family and little Joey just melts my heart every time with her big smile! She is just the cutest ever!! Little Nick was a biiiit unsure of me, but we tricked him into smiling a few times against his better judgement. ;) I love photographing families year and year and watching them grow. It's the best ever and makes me so happy. I'm hoping next year little Nick will like me much better. I tend to be pretty popular with the 2 and over crowd. ;)

This weekend we are putting the finishing touches on a little project we've been working on that I'm SO excited to share. I'm thinking of doing maybe a live facebook reveal once it's all ready. What does everyone think about that? I'm a little scared of being on camera live but what the heck, all the cool kids are doing it. If I can get one of my kids to cooperate for it, I think I'll try it. So stay tuned for details on the reveal! :) And happy happy Friday everyone!!

Sunshine & Snow

I loved capturing this beautiful mama and her littles together on this beautiful winter afternoon in Bethlehem. I photographed these guys a little over a year and a half ago and to see how much they've grown in such a short period of time is so crazy! I'm always asking my own kids to please stop growing up, especially when I see older photos of them, and I always feel the same way photographing families year after year. No more growing up kids, OK?! But in all seriousness, this is what I love about taking photographs for people. Freezing the memories of this little afternoon together in time, and imagining them looking back at these little faces years from now. It's the best.

3 little buddies

I took a few photos of these 3 buddies after our walk one morning this past fall. The light was perfect, and once Joe realized that "run for a picture" didn't mean take off on a one man marathon down the canal trail, we were good. Lol! I love how much Oliver is eating up being a part of the cool older kid group in these. So cute!!

And just like that

...she graduated kindergarten. I was so worried at the beginning of this year. I remember walking back to the car sobbing hysterically behind my sunglasses after dropping her off on the first day. Veteran moms were probably looking at me like I was nuts. Haha! But as it happens, I had nothing to worry about. She blossomed this year. I love this little sweet head. Now a first grader. Gah! So proud. :)
