Leese Family | Longs Park | Lancaster, Pennsylvania


How long has it been since you’ve taken your family to Longs Park in Lancaster? We used to take the kids every weekend to play on the new playground. Walk around the pond, and feed the ducks. With the winter months being what they were it was hard to get out of the house and enjoy the scenery that Longs Park offers.

The Leese Family gave me the push that I had needed to get out of the house, even during the colder months, and enjoy what Longs Park in Lancaster has to offer! Sue & her husband have 2 college aged daughters that were a mirror image of their parents. Kind, loving, and active members of their community. As a mom of little ones myself, I couldn’t help but admire and feel inspired by their bond.

But let me tell you, this was not just a Portrait Session; it was a journey into their lives. As I clicked away, capturing their shared laughter and loving glances, I saw my future – a picture of what I hope my own family will be like in a few years.You see, these parents shared that same overwhelmed look that you and I often have.

The look that says, “Life is so chaotic with these kids, but we wouldn’t change a thing”. Just like us, they loved being parents more than anything. Even with their girls no longer being so little.

I wanted their memories, just like all of my families, to be tangible- something they could hold and cherish forever. When they requested I design them an album to be able to look back on these little moments my heart was absolutely soaring. Designing their album, I found myself tearing up. It was as if I was looking into a crystal ball, seeing a glimpse of what my family life could be like when my little ones have grown.

The laughter, the shared glances, the candid moments of love – they all made me realize how fleeting these moments are. And that’s why capturing them, in a family portrait, is so incredibly crucial. It’s not just a photograph; it’s a frozen moment in time, a tangible piece of their legacy, a story of their love.

Now, every time I see their family album, I can’t help but look forward to working with them again. And I can’t wait to create more such precious memories for families in our community.

So, dear moms, if you’re looking for an excuse to get family portraits taken, let this be it. Believe me, you won’t regret it. Because years down the line, when your little ones are off to college, these portraits will be a sweet reminder of these chaotic, overwhelming, but oh-so-precious years.

Remember, the days are long, but the years are short. Capture them while you can. And when you do, I would love to be there, camera in hand, ready to freeze those moments for you, just as I did for this lovely family.

Till then, keep loving, laughing, and holding on to those precious moments.

How do you know if now is the best time for your own family portraits?

Can you answer “Yes!” to any of these questions?

  • Has it been more than 2 years since your last family photos?
  • Have you experienced any big life changes since your last photos?
  • Do you keep saying, “That is such a fun idea- maybe we should do that!”
  • Are you putting off getting pictures until you ‘lose enough weight’?

Well then, if this is you- then the right time is now to get your Family Portraits done!

Meet Miranda

I did everything I wasn't supposed to do! I gave away 100+ images, offered 30 minute sessions, went over my allotted time for EVERY family, and never upsold a single image.

Now, I'm booking my calendar faster than ever, keeping to my 15 minutes per family while serving them well, not feeling overwhelmed or stressed, and upselling more than 50% of my galleries!

After years of doing it all wrong, I finally figured out how to do it right.

Minis offer cash injections that are amazing for me and my family!

Especially around the holidays, what I make from Mini Sessions pays for my entire family's Christmas!

Gifts, Christmas dinner, additional décor- this is entirely funded by my own Mini Sessions!

Sharing this information and allowing others to support their family is my main reason for doing this!
