When Mandi found out I was coming back to Pennsylvania and was scheduling a few sessions, she contacted me to see if I would do newborn photos! What perfect timing! Evelyn was eight days late...you read that right, poor Mandi but Evelyn came at her own time as was still under seven pounds! It worked great because she slept like a champ.
We were going to meet at my in-laws' since they drove two hours to get to where I was, but since the weather decided to be good to us, we met at Moraine State Park instead. I had been there years ago and was not familiar with the park at all. Before every session, I always pray for it to go well, that I am a light to the family, that the husband has a good time (the mom and kids usually have no problem with that part!), and that God leads me to the perfect place for the family. Wow! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect session.
I pulled in, parked in the first lot I found near Lake Arthur figuring we would just use the lake but first, I decided to walk down a path to see if I saw anything before meeting up with Mandi's family. It took me about five minutes before I found the most beautiful moss covered spot in the woods. My son kept calling all the woods a magical forest and I wish he were with us to see how I actually did find a magical forest! I could barely contain myself!
The session was amazing. Evelyn slept the entire time, we had the most amazing assistant accompany us, and Tylee did a great job at finding fairies in this magical forest we stumbled upon.
Congratulations, Mandi and Scott! You are beyond blessed with two beautiful girls. And Tylee just stole my heart with her sweetness and curiosity. I hope it doesn't take another four years before we meet again.
