Owls & Tree Stump Slices | Langhorne PA Newborn Photography

July and August have been two busy months for Maternity and newborn sessions. I hung out with mom and dad in July for their Maternity session, August brought my chance to hang out with this little lady at the studio for a few hours. The theme of her nursery is Owls so mom brought along an owl hat to grab some shots in for hanging in her bedroom and we got a ton. Mom and dad also brought something else along, now I have posed newborns in and on a number of crazy things in my years as a photographer, but this was a first. When mom told me about the "slab", as we started referring to it, I didn't exactly understand what she was talking about. Well, as it turns out, I had it all wrong in my head, the "slab" was just that, a Slab of wood cut from a tree and used as the cake stand at their wedding. Once I saw it I totally got what she was saying, and really wasn't aware of a term for a flat piece of wood cut from a tree, so slab fit perfectly. I love the idea that it was used as their cake stand and now their little baby girl was napping on it. I've encouraged mom to bring it back for little Ms. R's 6 month milestone session this winter, I think it would be a great piece to show how much she grows.

Yardley First Birthday Portraits

This happy little lady visited me at my Feasterville - Trevose Studio for her first birthday portraits. She was a funny little lady, and so very happy and expressive. Her expressions run the gamut but I would say that the most variety was in the number of different smiles I got from her. We captured everything from, small sweet smiles to big laughing grins, it was fantastic, such a smiley little one. Check out all of her happy faces!

Warminster PA Maternity and Newborn Photographer

Very rarely do I get the chance to say that mother nature is really on my side, especially in the summer months. Often my summer sunset sessions are threatened by crazy thunderstorms, which we get so very often and randomly this time of year. Now, when a client has requested portraits in a large open field, the chance of a severe thunderstorm makes me a bit nervous, as we generally are the tallest things in the field at the top of the hill. This Maternity session was up in the air, up until about an hour before, when the weather service cleared the chance of a severe storm. I was so relieved that we didn't have to postpone till the following Saturday, and at the time little did I know their little lady was going to be making her big debut a bit earlier than originally expected. So Mother Nature really was on our side that day, because if we would have postponed they never would of gotten their maternity session. Also less than a week later the township mowed down the tall grass in the fields and made them into hay bales, I never see that coming! The Friday after we photographed the maternity session little Miss E arrived. This little lady is also a member of our studio Baby plan, so you will be seeing a lot more of her over the next year. This may be the first time that I get to share both a maternity and a newborn session in the same blog post with you. I hope you enjoy!

Waiting for baby C | Yardley Maternity & Family Photographer

A few months back I found out that this family was expecting their second child, a little girl. I was super excited for them, since I know them so well, I've been photographing their older daughter since she was just 3 months old. She is one funny little girl, for a while now she has called me Ms. Doughnut, I don't know if she can't say Dana or if she associates me with trips to the Coffee shop up the street, either way I find it hilarious.  I can't wait to see her with her new little sister this coming fall, I think she will be an excellent big sister.

4 Big Reasons You Need to Schedule a Family Portrait Session Now! | Bucks County Family Photographer

WHY ARE FAMILY PORTRAITS SO IMPORTANT??

Richboro Child's Photographer WonderlandPortrait.com

Tell Your Story!

I recently surveyed my friends and clients about their experiences and opinions on photography. One of the questions in the survey asked if they had taken a photo with their child/family. I was pleasantly surprised to see that majority of those who completed the survey had in fact answered Yes to this question. My heart swelled at this information. You'll often hear me preach about the importance of photography, but I'm a photographer so DUH Of course I feel it's important! Through the survey though I found that so many of you also see this importance.

Now on the Flip-side I was also rather disappointed in some of the answers, one in particular hit home for me, the question was " As a woman I would invest in photos of myself to pass down to my Children. True or False". The result was about an even split ( actually 45% Yes and 55% No). Many have heard the story of why I set out at a young age to be a photographer. When I was about 11 years old a Family member lost her mother to Cancer, she only had one photo of her mother. In the Photo her mother was hiding behind someone else trying to avoid the camera, because "she hated to have her picture taken". Even at the age of 11 I felt this family member's sadness at the fact this was all she had left.

I make sure my husband and I have our Portraits Made at least Bi-annually. No we don't have kids yet, but I want to make sure they know the love that they came from when they finally do arrive. Once we have a child I will make our Family Portraits an annual occurrence. I know that might be a pipe dream right now, I know that life with kids gets crazy and busy. I know that money will be tight in those first few years, but I also know that the money spent on portraits will be an afterthought when I'm sending my son or daughter off to college. I know that I will miss the tiny baby curls after their first haircut, and the missing front teeth once the big kid teeth come in. I know I'll miss all these things about my kids when they have far surpassed these life stages, but what will my kids miss of me if I'm not in any of those pictures with them? Will they miss that time I had that really weird haircut when they were 3 years old? Will they miss the way that their chubby little baby legs wrap my waist as I hold them at a Year old? Will they know how important their father is to me now, before they were even here? No. They aren't going to remember these things, because they will be too young to remember these things. A photograph can remind them. A photograph can help them see. They'll be able to see who we are before, during and after them.

Your Children LOVE YOU!

Do you know the biggest reason moms give me for booking a family portrait session?

"I'm never in any of the pictures, it's always the baby/kids and my husband."

 

"I'm never in any of the pictures"

 

Just let that sink in a moment. I applaud these Mamas for realizing that they were missing and for doing something about it. I know I will be that mom. This may surprise some of you, knowing my husband is an amazing artist, but he refuses to learn how to use my SLR. Already the ratio of pictures of him is way higher than pictures of me. Now in all fairness he's more worried he will break it than actually refusing the knowledge, but still. So ladies I feel you, my scrapbooks are uneven too. Having someone else take the picture is the best way I can figure to show up in pictures in those first few years.

In the last year I've seen this article pop up in my Facebook timeline more than a few times. If you have never read it, it's basically about how much your child loves you in spite of the flaws mothers see physically in themselves. ( I warn you now you might cry reading it).

After moms tell me they are never in the pictures I tell them how a family session with Wonderland Portrait Boutique works. I always start off with the family shots then move on to each parent with the kids, the kids together and individually and then mom and dad together. 'Mom and Dad together' is probably the biggest objection I get for small family sessions "Oh we don't need that" "I'd rather the rest just be the kids". I don't know if people feel silly or what, but the Parents together is always a favorite shot during my extended family sessions. During these sessions generally Mom and Dad are now grandparents with older kids, it's the older "kids" (who are now parents themselves) that encourage their parents (grandmom and grandpop at this point) to get a photo together. So obviously it's important to the children that they have a nice photo of their parents. So when you say to me "we" don't need that, don't be surprised if I tell you, It's not for you, it's for the kids when they are older.

It's Good for your Kids!

The reasons to schedule an annual family portrait far out weigh capturing this moment in time.

There is also the fact that displaying family photos in your home improves your child's self esteem and gives them a sense of place and purpose. This past February Design Aglow posted an article to their blog on this very subject. Here are a few quotes:

“I think it is really important to show a family as a family unit. It is so helpful for children to see themselves as a valued and important part of that family unit."

Displaying photos prominently in the home sends the message that our family and those in it are important to one another, and we honor the memories we have experienced,

“It says we love you and care about you. You’re important.”  '

A LOT Changes in a Year!

The photos below are from two sessions, almost a full year apart. The Family session with the pink outfits is from May 2014 and the mommy and me session in teal is from this past June (2015). I looked at these together for the first time today, and this is a perfect example of how much changes in a year. Although dad isn't in the second session, because it was a special for mother's day, he came to the session, so I can tell you he looks pretty much the same, as does mom. Their Daughter though almost looks like a totally different kid. Look at the little sass and attitude she has now and THAT HAIR!! Seriously the cutest little personality, and so funny! Last year at around 1 she wasn't as responsive to me, which I'm not ashamed to admit, that is just how it goes some days. One year olds sometimes just don't care that I am there and on a mission to photograph them.  This year though she was my best pal, and posed. In just a year, actually 11 months, her personality has blossomed and really started to show to the point I was able to capture it in Photographs. Now lets not count out that first session. It really shows how she loved to interact with her parent at that age, which will be huge to her when she is going off to college.

Mr. E is Three! |Superhero Birthday | Richboro PA Birthday Photographer

Some sessions I am reminded of the endless amount of energy kids possess, this was one of those sessions. Mr. E is fast, like a speeding bullet, and has an amazing superhero narrative in his head. Just like a superhero he was ready to help me at a seconds notice, and get into "disguise" to fight evil doers. I met him and his family at Tyler State Park in Newtown PA and at first he was really shy, but it did not take him too long to open up and start having a great time. I knew that mom was bringing along his favorite set of capes that his grandmom had sew for him and that he loved to wear them. We started off with some formal family photos and then let him have some fun with his costumes. He showed off some of his flying skills and his best Batman and Captain America Poses for me, then we were off to the field. I had brought along my favorite little red radio flyer tricycle that was just his size, and he loved it.

This has to be one of the favorite sessions I've photographed lately, I really love this age. While they can be crazy fast and change directions often, I love that they are so uninhibited. I love that a three year old will just show you who they are and be them self. He loved pretending that he was super when he put that cape on, and had no qualms about it.

There is no "perfect" picture when you are photographing children, but there is an honest picture. A picture that shows them, and who they are at this age, they may not be perfectly posed and that's ok. I mean really how often are two and three year olds actually sitting still in one spot? It's honestly a rarity that I get more than five minutes of being able to instruct them on what to do.  Mr. E did great with my suggestions on which game we should play next and that really let his personality shine. Through our interaction I was able to capture amazing action and personality.

Check out the great time he had during our Super Session at the Park.

Mr. H Turns One! | Yardley Birthday Photographer

A year really does go by incredibly quick when it comes to children and aging. I tell people this almost daily but, even I forget sometimes. When Mr. H's Mom emailed me to set up his first birthday session I thought for sure she must be a couple months early in planning, it couldn't of been a year since his Newborn session could it? You probably remember him, he is my little Rock and Roll baby from last May. He was so small for his newborn session we were able to put in in a snare drum. In fact I have the Guitar picture below on my studio wall in canvas, it's still one of my favorites. Rock and Roll Newborn Pictures Ideas Philadelphia Bucks County PA WonderlandPortrait.com

Yup. A lot has changed in a year as well, he hasn't just grown he's become very fast. We met up at a local garden in Bucks County PA to photograph some family photos as well as birthday portraits of just Mr. H. As always I started with the Family then him with just his Mom and one with just his Dad. Once he realized that he could walk around he really got comfortable and wanted to explore. We had the "formal" family shots out of the way, so we let him go and I captured some great little personality shots of him. By the end I was calling him "the man of many faces", because he has some great expressions. A few times I captured the image and had to take a moment to control my laughter, he had just the funniest expressions, and they only lasted for a second. The faces I captured are just golden. Mom and Dad are going to have great memories to share with him if he ever out grows this expressive face stage.  As you look through the photos below be prepared to giggle at the expressive faces of Mr.H. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Toddlers & Cooperation. The never ending story.| Southampton PA Children's Photography

 The Art of Cooperation | How to make your child cooperate for a Portrait. | Bucks County Children's Photographer | WWW.WonderlandPortrait.com

 

I recently posed a question to my Facebook followers.

"What’s the most overwhelming thing about having your photo taken?"

Majority of them stated, getting their children to cooperate. One of my long term clients wrote this: "Mine use to be child behavior, but now that you do my pictures it's so easy. Sometimes it's better just to walk away and let you do you thing. They always come out better that way!"

Now honestly I didn't pay her to write that (even though it sounds that way), but I am going to share the advice that I gave her many moons ago. This is one of my biggest tips, even though I have a ton, but I'm leading with the biggie.

Children are very sensitive beings, which I'm sure you know.  If you're happy, they get happy. If you're sad, they get sad.  If you're excited, they get excited. If your stressed , they get stressed. Let me repeat that last one again, for effect. If you're stressed, THEY GET STRESSED.

So lets touch on this one a little bit further. Mom's train of thought :: Oh My Goodness Bobby better sit still in one spot and listen to this photographer. He better smile. He better not embarrass me. What if he is rude? What if he just ignores her? I'm going to take away his iPad time if he's not good, I swear::  Or, well, something along those lines at least. So the day of your session arrives and now these thoughts have been rolling around in your head for a while, the scary fuzzy purple monster, known as stress, is growing. You can feel the anxiety expanding. You hit my studio doorway or our meeting place at the park and it's oozing from your pours. I can feel it and so can your child.

Let's first address what "good" means for a portrait session with Wonderland Portrait Boutique. For me, I want your child to be him or herself. Every kid has their own unique personality, and I want to see it. All normal rules go out the window during a session. For example a few weeks ago I told a child put their feet on my couch with shoes on! Eek! She looked at her mom for approval as I said "I'm sure this is a no no at home, but that is why I bought a faux Leather couch, I can wipe it down." Mom nodded at her with approval, she happily popped her feet up.  The only times I will really expect parents to correct a child is if they are doing something dangerous. If your two year old wiggles out of the pose I put him in, you don't need to correct them and threaten to take away their post session treat. That is just how a two year old is, and I know that I will have to continually put them back into a pose. When a kid is having a good time at a session they get silly and wiggly, it comes with the territory. On the opposite end are shy children. Shy kiddos generally just need a little bit of time to open up and get comfortable. With these children I find that I just need to speak softer to and play some silly games to gain their trust. All children go through stages, they just hit them at different times. I try to always be adaptable to each child's personality.

So now let's talk about that scary purple monster mom (or dad) has been carrying around for the last two weeks.  When it comes to children's photography you can't have any lofty expectations of Gap Ads. All the children on my website and facebook page are normal kids, I never work with professional models. All these children are showing off their own authentic personalities. I've learned that asking a bright bubbly child to pose with a serious face doesn't always work out. Same thing with a shy child, they aren't going to be comfortable being photographed in a very populated location. You know your child better than anyone. Who are they? Do they love books? Would they like to show off their action figure collection? What is it about Bobby that make him who he is?

Once my long term client (mentioned above), realized her son is just a little funny man she was ok with the silly banter between he and I.  He is allowed talk back to me during a session. Obviously, all parents want their kids to be respectful to adults, and he is, when we aren't shooting a session. When he's in front of my camera, he knows it's ok to call me a poopie head and he loves it, of course taking full advantage. Honestly, he makes me laugh so hard during sessions now, the things he comes up with are hilarious. That is him, that is his personality.

I am by no means a child psychologist, I've just seen a lot of kids in the last 12 years, and I've picked up on the trends. I've seen parents loose their cool way too often  and I've found most of the problem is the parent's expectation. Most folks are on Pinterest now and see these amazing fun poses and images. The thing that non photographers have to remember is you can't compare your everyday to someone else's highlight reel. That is exactly what Pinterest is, a Highlight reel, it's the best of the best. I'm not saying that Pinterest worthy sessions aren't a possibility, what I'm saying is that expecting to duplicate an exact pose and expression isn't always a realistic goal. Letting your kids be themselves is going to yield your best result.

Parents striving for a "perfect" portrait often stress themselves out, which the child feels and acts appropriately to something they feel is now scary. They want to grab mom or dad's leg or be held. Every one of those parents says to me "I don't know why he is acting this way, he's never done this before". It's that common, I honestly hear it often.   I don't want to come a across as I'm telling people how to parent their kids. I want my clients to have the best possible portraits.  I know what it takes to have a successful session and I realize that parents want this information.

A successful session starts with getting your child involved and excited. Since this post is already pretty long, I've decided to make this advice the subject of my next newsletter.  I'm going to send my top tips for a successful session directly to you.

How I've Recently Failed | Yardley Newborn Photographer

So I have to admit I've had a huge FAIL Happen recently. I became a victim of letting life happen to me and quickly loosing track of time. Almost weekly parents tell me how they didn't believe that the first year of their child's life goes by too fast until it's gone and they are now planning a Cake smash with me. I woke up the other day and realized it's APRIL!

Yeah I know my phone tells me daily, conveniently on the screen I unlock about a million times a day, but really how many of us actually pay attention to that. The last few months I've just been floating through life and letting it happen instead of making things happen and celebrating the everyday. I've fallen behind in all aspects of my life. I've lost touch with friends, in fact I still have Christmas presents hanging around I never shipped out (guess I should get on that).  I've had to scramble to get projects done because all the sudden the deadline is on my door step faster then I thought two weeks could ever go by. I've seen home projects fall by the wayside. Oh and forget about that scrapbook I started on New Years Day, that just sits. There are also a few crochet projects that are sitting on the shelf gathering dust too.

Yet in the midst of all this, I'm always on the go. I always have something to do. Are they always the things that are most important to me? Eh. Probably not, but that's life. That is how it works. We become all consumed with the trivial little things, like trips to the mechanic's, or adding up the year's receipts and we miss out.

We miss out on all the great things in life.

Mainly I'm writing this post because I realized that my sweet niece is now 2 Months old. At the same time I'm realizing I never shared more than a few of her newborn portraits and I've already taken more portraits of her for Easter. So here is a giant Post of Alyssa and a Promise to myself to take life by the horns and direct it where I want to go, instead of waiting for things to happen to me.

Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.- Dr. Suess

Yeah. See the days that I always choose for picture day also seem to coincide with Alyssa's Diva days. Her first Newborn session was, well to put it nicely, a challenge. They brought her back a week later JUST to do the tire poses and she was a perfect angel. I got a ton of shots of her. The Day that I chose for her Easter session, just happened to be the day she was laughing in the face of the sandman and missed her morning nap. I don't know if it was that she was tired or really hated the dress I picked up for her but she gave me some interesting expressions. I've never had a little one be so uninterested in the funny noises and faces I'm making at them. Normally these would not be photos that I would even share but her tiny little faces are pretty funny when looked at all together.   My Favorite dress image has to be the close up face in the center of the next collage, she looks really unimpressed with me. (I think I may print and frame that one just to keep me grounded day to day.) We Finally coaxed a few grins out of her once we put her in her "casual" outfit.  Also Please note that I feel the final image in this post should be captioned "Really guys? Bunny ears?"

Awaiting... | A Winter Maternity Session| Upper Makefield PA Maternity Newborn Photographer

There is an old saying, "The Cobbler's children have no shoes". Which basically means that the cobbler puts so much time into other people's shoes he doesn't have nice shoes for his own kids. Well, nothing rings truer in my own life. Yes, Ray and I have our Portraits taken bi-annually, but I haven't had a proper family picture with my family for quite some time. Honestly they are all pretty hard to convince (sound familiar?), even the photographer has trouble getting her family in front of the camera. My Brother and his girlfriend are expecting their first child this January.  I've been hounding them for months to let me photograph their Maternity portraits, they had all plans of just skipping them. I wasn't about to let this moment pass with out documenting it. Finally they gave in, if for no other reason than to shut me up { ;) }  The beginning of November our schedules actually met up, which during the Christmas season is a miracle for me.

I always laugh at the amount of people my brother knows, and this day was no exception.  Our session only last about an hour, but with in that time my brother managed to spot one of his friends driving by while standing in the middle of a field posing for the blanket shots. Anyone who says my brother isn't a great multitasker has never witnessed this phenomenon. Because of this I have great faith that when left in her daddy's care, my new niece will always have an eye on her, no matter what else he is doing. He doesn't miss a trick!

So now it's just a waiting game to meet the baby, the next few weeks are going to drag on for sure. I suppose in a few months I should start working on getting my parents into a real full family portrait, once the baby is a bit older of course.

Wrightstown Fall Family Photographer

It's been a very busy few weeks at the studio. Christmas is upon us and it's not even Thanksgiving yet! Sadly in a blink of an eye, all the leaves are pretty much gone and we are expecting snow in the next few days, where did our gorgeous autumn go?  As a reminder of how amazing our fall here in Pennsylvania can be, I wanted to share this awesome, fun, family session from a couple weeks ago.  I honestly feel that these guys should be in a magazine, they are just gorgeous and were so fun to work with! This amazing big sister really lives up to her title, she could not get enough of holding and snuggling her little brother, and he really did not mind all the attention in the least bit.

The W Family | Richboro PA Family Photographer

I had such a blast photographing these three little firecrackers! A little man and his two big sisters, each one with their own very unique personality. This was probably one of my first fall sessions this year that the cold really set in for and these three were such troopers even when the wind would blow. As with all of my fall sessions with little ones, we ended by throwing leaves. This seemed to be the kids' favorite part and I'm so happy I could capture that joy on their faces. Enjoy!

Little Penn State Fan { Southampton PA Newborn Photographer }

Today I'm sharing another adorable, sweet, tiny little newborn. This isn't just any adorable, sweet, tiny newborn, oh no, he is already a sports fan.  His Dad arrived with all kind of great props for Little E's session.  I love including family heirlooms and other personal items into my newborn sessions, and I do pretty often, but it's a rarity to have someone arrive with a signed Penn State Football helmet. Even more rare, the fact that it is signed by the one and only Joe Paterno.  How cool is that? Dad also brought along all kinds of golf accessories.  I was really excited for the golf items and getting to incorporate them. I've done Baseball, football, heck even drag racing for newborn sessions but golf was a new exciting sports element to try out. I had a blast with Mr. E that day, he was so pleasant and not much of a complainer. He slept like a champ during his visit to the studio. Check him out!

We could all use a little Grace ( Philadelphia Newborn Photographer )

January has been bustling with babies this year. Many of my wonderland families have new additions arriving in 2014, and I'm so excited to meet them all.  This is one of those families who has just welcomed their third child, a little lady. I also photographed their younger son, and now middle child, when I was first starting out on my own. I'm so thankful that these families keep coming back to me with all of their milestones. I always say that one of the best parts of being a children's photographer is seeing the kids as they grow. I'm not with them everyday so I'm  always a surprised by all the new talents they have to show off every time they come to have portraits taken. As I said she is the third child and her two big brothers are just bonkers over her already. After her 2 year old brother woke from his nap he hung out and watch the session patiently till it was his turn too.  He was so excited when he got to sit with "baby Gracie" and take a picture. I just love how he said her name it was adorable.

Check out all of Miss Grace's fab accessories, at just 9 days old she was already all decked out in some of the cutest little things.  The Scarves Grace is wrapped in came all the way from the Netherlands just to be used for this session. One of her fabulous aunts lives there and brought them back when she came home to Philly to meet little miss. Mom had brought along quite the assortment of headbands and hair bows already so it was no problem finding something that matched each one of the new scarves. Philadelphia_Newborn_Photographer
