Today marks 2 months until Christmas. Can you believe it? I certainly can't.

If you haven't already started thinking about what to do for your Christmas or holiday card this year, now is the time to make a plan. We all know how busy this time of year can be, so why not eliminate the stress that comes with trying to get the perfect picture of your little one(s) and let me take care of it for you by booking a mini session. To make life even easier, your mini session will include 25 custom designed Christmas/Holiday cards!

Other important information:
* Bookings are limited, but if enough interest is generated I may add an additional date.
* The style of photography will still be mostly candid with a few posed shots unless you choose to have all posed shots.
*Please come dressed and ready for action as time will be limited. No need to dress in fancy clothes if that is not your style. In fact, some of my favorite cards each year are the ones that truly show the personality and style of the family based on their card and clothing choices. Get creative!
* Custom designed cards are high quality cards printed on 80 - 100 pound cardstock. A pdf catalog of styles is available via email.

The Haltom Family (Chester County Family Photographer)

Saturday was a beautiful day at Springton Manor Farm. In fact, it was their Family Fun Day and there were tons of fun things to do. But, before all of that started I had a terrific session with the wonderful Haltom family.
They came dressed in their Fall attire (though it ended up being a bit warmer than expected) and the kids were eager to begin exploring having never been there before. Another family member ready to explore was their dog, Darby. Unfortunately, her exploring led her to a very pungent smell from another animal, which she promptly rolled in, leaving the rest of us wishing she had not been so adventurous :)
Despite that, we had a wonderful time checking out some of the area, seeing some of the animals and capturing the essence of them as a family and individuals. Thank you Haltom family for a beautiful morning! Enjoy your preview.
