Central, PA and NEPA Family Photographer


Central, PA, and NEPA family sessions are best booked at least 4-6 weeks in advance! This gives you time to prepare your outfits and your partner. 😉 I book up quickly and only accept a limited amount of family sessions a month.


Anywhere!! Seriously, Central, PA and NEPA, and its surrounding areas are full of beautiful scenery. You can choose a state park, a field,  your home. Really, though this place is beautiful all over! I can help you choose if you can’t think of anywhere you want.


My Central, PA, and NEPA family sessions are a fun and happy experience. I don’t want you to be frustrated or stressed out about it. Letting the kids be kids and that makes a world of difference. We start off with a few posed shots with everyone looking. You know that photo all grandparents want hanging on their wall. Then I will direct you how and where to stand, but I let you be you. I let you giggle, cuddle, play, and enjoy your family and really want you to focus on how much you love and adore your family. We want to see that love shine through in your photos. I will play games with the kids and I will have you play some games with them.  You DO NOT have to look at me the whole time. In fact, I almost prefer you don’t look at me unless I ask. I want you to tickle and snuggle and truly feel and show the love between you and your loved ones. When I send your reminder email I will include a Family Session Guide with all the details in it for you!


DO NOT WEAR MATCHING OUTFITS!! Phew, there… now that’s out of the way. Coordinating outfits are perfect!  Choose one outfit and pick the others based on the colors in that outfit. Maroon, Mustard, blue, gray, brown, tan, and dark green are all amazing solid colors to go with. Or variations of blue, jean, and cream. Layers and textures look amazing in photographs. Don’t worry about just clothing though. Those comfy old sneakers, probably won’t look that great in photos. So be mindful of what shoes you wear. Also, be mindful of the weather! That cute dress or tank top may not be the best idea in the winter or fall time. And that cute jean jacket… probably not a great idea during the summer. So be purposeful in choosing your outfits.
