When I see on my calendar "quadruplet three year olds" I think to myself, "......well this could be interesting....!" Let me tell you about this awesome family I got to meet πŸ’š Mom and Dad are patient and kind as all get out, easy going and had one goal which was to have all six of them in a photo and 'they all don't even have to be looking'. Left in the top right photo is Tucker, notice the cars in his hands... he scouted them out in the studio the minute he walked in! He was the toughest to get to smile because all he wanted to do was play with the cars but he couldn't resist my "Hot Dog Song"! Next in that photo is Grace. She's a dancer. She wanted to see the photos on the back of my camera and thought my "Baby Shark" was pretty spot on. Then there's Caroline, a little more reserved but still a little silly. She liked it best when she was sitting on the bench with her sissy and she liked my fake sneeze trick. And then there's Cole. He's the leader of the group from what I can tell and the class clown. The silliest of all with zero percent shyness. He was sneak attack tickling me every chance he got, sitting on my lap while I photographed his siblings and he was a pro at posing from the word go. I'd say this is pretty good for their first professional family photo considering no photoshopping was needed. To mom and dad, I'm so happy I could be the first one to give you a photo that you will look at forever with feelings of happiness that will only grow stronger as the days go by. Life is crazy... but it's so much more beautiful than crazy. These are the days. So happy I got to meet these guys. They brought me more joy than I can even describe in words πŸ’•

I *WISH* you could all know these little girls. Sweetness is the closest word I can think of to describe them but it seems completely insufficient. Baby Adalynn is turning ONE and big sister Taelynn just had her third birthday. I want to stick that little Tae and keep her in my pocket! My face hurt from smiling so much after this session 😁

Kaycee is turning SIX and Camryn is THREE πŸ’• Soooo much history between this family and I. Kaycee was just a little peanut in my basement at my house when we first met and since then, I've captured her birthday photos every year, mom and dad's engagement, wedding day, family photos, the addition of baby sister and then Cam's yearly photos, too. This right here is why I love what I do. It's families like this that allow me to say that I have the best job in the world. Love you guys ❀️

Gorgeous baby Vera πŸ’— Not sure how almost a year has passed since her newborn session but man did we have fun. She is also super smart.

I wanted to take her home and snuggle her right up! I was singing baby shark all night after this one, too πŸ˜‰

Lehigh Valley Photographer | LG Photography | Jolly Good News

Good morning, everyone. What a crazy summer it's been! I have spent every moment I could with my kiddos and family, taking it one day at a time and loving every second. We still have a little over a week until school starts and after that I'll be back at the studio pretty regularly.

image2 (6).JPG

So in BIG news, the news I mentioned I couldn't wait to share! As you may or may not know, I have an amazing behind the scenes assistant/bestie/do-it-all-er named Tanya. She has been on my team for three years this September. She has given so much of herself to my business and to me personally just by being her. She is the type A to my, ahem, not so type A personality. She keeps me focused and on task and she juggles a family, a side business, being a wife and a mom and up until last month, being a preschool teacher in addition to her assisting me. After much prayer and discussion, I am happy to announce Tanya is starting FULL TIME with LG next week!!!! We are still looking for the perfect job description for her but nothing seems to do it justice. She's so much more than an assistant and will be taking over even more than before freeing up time for me to focus on the things I do best! I'll still be shooting and editing and answering particular email questions as always. The difference you might notice with this change is our response time. Tanya is working daytime hours only and will not be answering emails during her evenings or weekends off. We've worked out a system that she'll be checking email throughout the day and first thing in the morning to reply to anything that came in overnight. If you would like to contact us regarding your scheduled session, please try to contact at least 24 hours prior to give her the time to respond. We ask that you send an email or message to our Facebook page rather than text her (unless she texts you first regarding a session or question), as that will help keep all our messages together and answered during her work hours. We ask for your patience and understanding as we transition into this much anticipated change!

I promised a mid-month newsletter this time also to talk about Santa stuff! I know it's crazy to be thinking of Santa time in August but if you know how crazy it gets around that time of year, you understand why I'm doing this now! As you may or may not know, Santa is my uncle! (I know, I know! #BESTUncleEver) Anyway, he is a pastor at a church in Middleburg, PA. He has quite a trip to get to us every weekend and he can't do Sundays so we are at the mercy of Fridays and Saturdays with the occasional Thursday. Santa had an episode that scared us all like crazy this summer. They thought it was a stroke, it has a fancy name but thankfully I can say, by the grace of God, he's come out of it completely unscathed. I just spoke with him and he said he "CAN'T WAIT" to see all the kiddos and he's ready for whatever I'm cooking up over here! So I'm waiting to hear back from him about one thing I'm kinda geeking out about that will be super fun if we can pull it off. But, counting up the sessions we have to offer this year, we are cutting back some. I don't want to put so much on the busiest man in the world and if you've ever had a kicker or a screamer on Santa's lap, you know what kind of physical toll that kind of action takes on him. He won't EVER complain but it is physically and emotionally taxing and his well-being is my number ONE priority.  

Last year, after craziness with booking ensued I promised I'd find a better way to do it. Let me explain. 

For those who are new to this, I hear it's similar to trying to get the best Black Friday deal you can imagine and your anxiety and excitement over it are through the roof. To get an idea, we cut off allowing entries to come through after 2 minutes last year and we already had 500 names on the list. We had "sold" as many spots as we had available within 35 seconds. If you can imagine, on my end... I was thrilled! It was seamless, easy and unflawed and for the first time in years we didn't have any glitches. What we didn't expect was the backlash. If you're unfamiliar with a google form, every entry gives a time stamp to the name on the backside that we see. Everyone was flabbergasted when they said they were on right at 8pm and hit submit within seconds and they didn't make it in time. "How is that possible?" "You cherry picked who you wanted to have a spot!" "There's got to be a more fair way!" "I took off of work for this and I didn't get a spot... You just lost a customer for life!" "You should remember the people who got you started in your business, you should be ashamed of yourself for how you handled this!" Yeah.. that was the negativity I got for the one thing I thought was flawless and well thought out. Of course those who got a spot were thrilled and thought it was completely fair. Most of those who didn't were understandably upset but not angry enough to message me hatefully. Which brings me back to how are we going to book this year? The answer is, I don't know and I still have some time to decide.  I know no matter what I decide, some will love it, some will hate it and some won't care either way. I have to do what's best for myself (my health and sanity) and my family and I've been thinking about this for 9 months and I still don't have an answer. Please know, I am a people pleaser and I take every word of encouragement and criticism to heart. I wish I didn't have to think about doing a different way but those words cut me to my core last year and I was really heartbroken over it for quite some time. Bottom line is: I can't please everyone and I have to be okay with some people being mad about it or at me over it. 

What we have with my Santa sessions is very special. Santa is the real deal and I care so much about producing an amazing product for you that I pour every ounce of my energy into every picture taken. I believe that combination is what's made our sessions so sought after over the years.

Lehigh Valley Photographer | LG Photography | Big News: I'm Moving

Here we are... April 1, 2015. It's almost exactly six years ago that I began this journey in photography. I'll never forget my first year of Easter minis. I still photograph each of those clients that came to me for those sessions, today. My whole business has revolved around a few amazing, trusting clients... who continually told their friends about me and who kept coming back. Over the years, my business grew. I grew. I learned. I learned what makes a great photograph and why. I learned what I like and why I like it.

It was during the month of March, I realized I had grown again. I had actually OUT-grown something very dear to me. My studio. My sweet little, 350 square foot, in-home, basement studio. My new lights are huge, and I realized it was time for me to seriously start looking for a studio space. So I began the search… and while searching, I found one. I found THE ONE. The most perfect (PERFECT!!!!!) studio for me. Have no fear, for most of you, it’s closer to you than before. For my folks coming from north of Slatington, I’m sorry… you have an extra five minutes on your ride. I had a few requirements that I had to meet in order for me to pull the trigger and move out of my home studio. 1. It needed to be close to my home and in my kids’ school district. 2. It NEEDED a parking lot. 3. It needed to be at least double of what I currently was working with. My new place has it all! It’s almost triple the square footage, it’s cozy and cute. It’s conveniently located on 329/Old Post Road and Levans Road in Coplay, PA. It is exactly five minutes from my home. Have I mentioned how perfect it is?

So, end of this month or beginning of May, I’ll be officially open for business over there. I have April set aside for renovations, new floors, painting and doing some updates! SAVE THE DATE!!! Sunday May 3, 2015 will be open house/GRAND opening! I’ll have much more info as I get my bearings and wrap my head around all of this. It’s all so exciting. I’ll be doing tons of giveaways, so even if you aren’t the lucky winner of the 3,700 fan giveaway, you will have plenty more opportunities to win at the open house. So stay tuned.

I love you guys. I can’t describe how much because no words seem to suffice. You are my advertising. Until this point, I’ve spent exactly $15 on advertising on Facebook one time. Please continue to tell your friends about me… if you love your photos, tag my page when you post. You have no idea what that little thing does for a photographer. It’s a simple gesture but creates a massive ripple effect. β€œLIKE” my photos if you actually like them, share them when you want to. Small businesses like mine, thrive on that type of social media advertising. 

For those of you who are here for the giveaway winner, I’m very excited to announce that Danielle Dennis Spitale is the winner of the $150 gift certificate, and her comment on the photo was "My sons are 16 and 6 and I have been married for 14 years, been together for 19 yrs and I do not have any family pictures. Always had my son's pictures taken on their birthdays, but never had a family picture done!! It would be nice to have one before my son is off to college". I'm so glad it was a random drawing, because otherwise, I would have cried having to choose. Congrats Danielle! Contact me with your address so I can mail it out this week for you. I can’t believe the response that I got with all of those comments. One thing I know is: TOO many of you have gone too long in-between photo shoots. I have read every single comment and I was moved beyond words. Don’t wait for a better time. There is no better time than now. I can’t stress this enough. I had a family recently who were trying to get everyone together for a generation photo and one of the eldest family members had passed before they could make it happen. I’ll say it again, don’t wait!!! Don’t wait for when you lose those 10 pounds, for when it’s summer, for when it’s a better time… for whatever excuse you’re trying to validate. Our days are limited. Tomorrow is not a guarantee. And don’t let financial reasons get in your way… My smallest photo package starts at $85… that’s a Medium Dunkin iced coffee a day for a month (to put it in perspective). Your children deserve to have photographs of themselves to live on forever. Do it for them, if nothing else. Contact me if you’d like to set something up! I would love the opportunity to capture your family.

Once again, thank you! THANK YOU!!! A BILLION TIMES OVER! I’m forever grateful for each and every one of you. Please join me on this new journey. Anyone who books a studio package in the month of May or June, will receive 10% off their package. (Yes, I’ll apply that to all of you, even those who are already booked and even newborns) 

Thanks for stopping by!
