Fabulously Fun Family of Four – Montgomery County, PA – Child and Family Photographer

I’m fairly sure my title describes this family and our session perfectly – we had a blast! This was true lifestyle, a fun day at the park – it’s exactly how I would imagine them even when I’m not there (maybe minus the awesomely coordinated outfits!) There was dancing, singing, races, cuddling, “bear hunting”, so many laughs, and even a really cool praying mantis that decided to join the fun. 

I found an awesome tip that Fab-Four-Momma left on my YELP page – thank you SO much for your kind words!

“If you have kids with no patience for stiff studio portraits, Kel’s your girl. She has great energy. The kids loved her. Never laughed so much getting our pics taken!”

Ava and Jake – Cystic Fibrosis Awareness – Montgomery County, PA – Child Photographer

Ava and Jake are the typical (ridiculously adorable!) siblings. They are both at the age where sitting still is just-not-so-fun and their parents really wanted an image with the two of them together. Can all parents of young children relate to this or what? :)

In addition to being spunky and gorgeous, Ava has Cystic Fibrosis. Her parents say that she’s doing great, and they’re hoping it stays that way! Unfortunately, there are a lot of other children and adults with CF who aren’t so lucky. Ava and her family are helping to raise money and awareness for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation – to help fund research for a cure. Ava’s parents share more of her story below.

“Ava was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at 2 months, and us being new parents, we were scared – we had never even heard of CF before.”

Ava’s story.

“Ava was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at 2 months, and us being new parents, we were scared – we had never even heard of CF before. It was a quick learning curve though, and the three of us now have our new normal. Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs, leads to life-threatening lung infections, obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food. To combat these effects, Ava has to take pancreatic enzymes before every meal so that she can gain the nutritional value from the food. She also does a treatment everyday, where she wears a vest that vibrates her chest to break up the mucous inside her – along with taking various daily medications. To help the CF Foundation raise money & awareness to find a cure, in 2011 we started a fundraising team called G-Crew. We walk every year at the Doylestown Great Strides event in May, and have started to fundraise year round.” – Chris and Christine Gardyasz

What are you wearing for your Spring Session?

After booking a session, a client usually asks me “what should we wear?!” My answer is simple – be yourself! I know, I know, that’s not helpful, but the truth is that your clothing choice depends on what you’re envisioning for your photos. If you want relaxed photos, come in your favorite casual outfit. A little more formal? Maybe a new dress in a great color – then coordinating the other outfits around that. Whatever you choose, make sure it’s something you love wearing! When coordinating your outfits, I recommend not all wearing the same thing, but instead choosing similar colors and mixing it up.

Wondering what colors to choose?  Here are a few ideas –

•  Match your eye color. You’d be surprised how much this can do for your eyes! However, I wouldn’t recommend for your blue-eyed bunch to show up wearing head-to-toe blue. Moderation and coordination are key. Also, don’t forget how accessories can play a huge role with a pop of color!

•  Think about where in your house you want to hang your photos. You can match the colors of your outfits to your decor so that your photos will coordinate with that particular living space.

•  When in doubt, neutral colors and earth tones always photograph well.

•  The color red can be the most powerful color in images. If you wear red or red accessories, your eyes may be drawn to those things instead of faces and expressions. That’s not to say that wearing red is a big no-no – just something to think about, especially with large accessories.

Still unsure on what to wear? Ask me! Heck, you can send me photos of your options – I’d be glad to help you out!
