my calendar in the fall is crazy busy! i blocked off the weekend of october 18th, a tad earlier than years in the past.  so that meant getting in the holiday spirit much earlier than usual! CKP went BIG this year.  i am fortunate enough to have the opportunity to shoot on this amazing property a few miles outside of punxsutawney.  i held my  mini sessions on the estate porch last year, this year…..we utilized the barn.  going inside rather than outside of the barn.  i can have amazing light inside of this beautiful old, restored barn.  but, it can also be tricky at times, if the light is changing and not constant.  over the course of a 6 hour shoot of 17 families, i definitely had to adjust to the conditions!

i studied art all through high school and college, and besides shooting, editing and creating a few DIY projects a year.  the artist in me is limited because of time constraints. each year, once i figure out where i want to have my mini sessions held, i start the creative process! i learn visually and i think visually and when my visions start to come to life and are even more than i imagined they would be…..i am thrilled! it’s like riding a bike….once an artist, always an artist!  i owe thanks to many helping hands for this year! the property owner, who can not be any more generous, thoughtful and just all around one of the best guys you would ever meet! my dad and husband both helped me with cutting down the (2)20 foot trees.  the assisting on moving, hanging, and rearranging, etc…..my mom who was able to spend extra time with chandler while i was busy getting everything ready.  and kaylan, my awesome assistant who kept me organized, on time and on track the whole day!  this was quite the production and i have put on here.  and i am forever grateful for all inolved!!

including my 17 wonderful families that i photographed! i announced the sessions were available to be booked on a tuesday evening a few weeks prior to the actual day, and within 2 hours 16/17 slots were filled!!!! the following day #17 got filled.  i am completely humbled that my clients new or old have no idea what the set ups are even going to look like at the time of booking and they are so anxious to get a CKP spot! i am honored to be your chosen photographer for such special photos, that will be cherished now and in future years.

i had a wonderful group of families this year!  everyone came ready to be photographed, looking wonderful from head to toe! i LOVE my clients! for real, you all are so awesome and i thank you for choosing me to photograph your family!

well here it is!! real antique wagons from the 1920s, fresh pine trees, hanging lights, a variety of textures, and those beautiful barn wood beams letting light shine through. i love it!!!  and i hope you do too!!

oh, and we can’t forget about fall, right?

just 4 families chose to do the fall set up, christmas is always more popular…..but i love shooting those vibrant fall colors too!!

christmas is up first! i had 4 babies who will celebrate their 1st christmas this year, so those families all get an extra sneak peak at their little babe!
