A Trip to the Park with Adam, Christy, Landon & Graham

Every once in a while it doesn't work for me to go to a family's home for a session so instead we go to a park and I follow them around for an hour while they play. And it's pretty great.  In this case I got to catch up with some college friends and meet their awesome kids too, I'm not sure what could have been better on a Saturday morning.

projectTEN :: July 2017

This month I documented one summer day, an hour at a time. I've found this to be a fun challenge to stretch myself to get images with my "real camera" that I wouldn't normally get - in the van, out to lunch, where ever we happened to be at the start of each hour. So here's to remembering a July 2017 day full of outside fun (including three hours of softball games), lunch with dad, and one three-year-old who got attacked by mosquitoes the night before and had the puffy eye to prove it.

projectTEN :: May 2017

This month, I let my moody side win over.  10 pictures of real life around here, all black and white and with no smiles. Thank you, two rounds of the stomach bug, for helping to make this theme possible.

Mother's Day Giveaway!

It's giveaway time and man am I excited about this one. If you're like me, you have more than one mom friend in your life that you admire and love and who has helped you out along the way. Now is your chance to nominate them for a free session! I am giving away a motherhood session to one lucky winner and the fun part is that you get to nominate your mom, sister, friend, wife, daughter, gym buddy, or neighbor for this one. Please be sure to read all the details below!

To nominate a mom, find my giveaway post on Instagram (@kellapp) and comment on that photo, tagging your friend that you're nominating and telling me in a sentence or two why you chose her.

Details:  Giveaway includes an in-home 90-minute documentary session, online gallery of final images and digital download of high-resolution files. Locations within 30 miles of Lancaster, PA are covered, but if you want to cover travel costs, anywhere is fair game ;) This specific giveaway is a motherhood session for a mom and her kids (not a family session). This is not a portrait session. A documentary session means I'll hang out with you in your home while you do life - you can read books, play games, eat lunch, bake cookies, play outside, give your kids baths, paint pictures, walk to the park, whatever your heart desires. The goal is to document a mother's everyday life with her kids and celebrate all the joy and beauty it entails.  Please look around my website to get a feel for my style before commenting, and make sure it's a style your mom friend will appreciate! The recipient of the session must sign a release giving me permission to use the images on my website and social media outlets. Nominations must be received by Friday, May 12, 2017 at midnight. Winner will be announced Sunday, May 14.  Session must be scheduled and take place by September 1, 2017.
