Lancaster Branding Photography: Fringe by J macrame art

Macrame fiber art branding photography in Lancaster, PA

Every now and then I get to do some branding and lifestyle photography for friends and clients. I especially love it when I can help budding small business owners by taking some quality photos of their work. Jette is a new friend and neighbor of mine here in Cabbage Hill on the South West side of Lancaster City. She recently started a business creating macrame art called Fringe by J. She can make most anything, from wall hangings to plant holders to purses and pillow covers. I loved photographing her in her element where she works in her beautiful bright attic studio space.

One of the things I learned about Jette is that she is a country girl at heart and she grew up on a farm in Virginia. She even incorporates pieces of home into her work by using wood that she has found around the farm and forest for her macrame pieces. She and her fiance will soon be getting married and she is planning to create a macrame backdrop for their wedding ceremony.

If you have a moment, I recommend checking out her Etsy shop to see more of her creations.

Lancaster Family Photography: A Fall Family Session at Long's Park

Lancaster_Family_Photography_photo_0025.jpg

I’ve been photographing the Franz family for a few years now and this fall session at Long’s Park is probably my favorite session with them so far. In all my years of doing portrait photography, I have rarely used Long’s Park as a location. I’m not sure why that is because it’s a beautiful spot and there is quite the variety with the pond, foot bridges, trees and forest. This park has become my go to with my daughter, ever since she was a baby. In fact her first word was “duck” because she loved to see the ducks at Long’s Park.

Fall came a little bit late this year and on this day the leaves were finally starting to show their true colors. There were countless other photo shoots going on at the same time and I was not surprised. The light was golden, the kids were happy, it was everything a photographer could want.
