Mother's Day

A gift

Spring will always be my absolute favorite season of the year.  The blooms that return year after year never cease to amaze and delight.  It's the miracle of our earth's rhythms when the tiny dormant seeds awake after their frosty, peaceful sleep.  They stretch, and reach, and unfurl their glory, again.  The trees shake off Winter's heavy coat and adorn themselves with bright, showy colors, as if they're on their way to a grand ball where they'll dance the night away.  It gets me every. single. time.  

I couldn't help but take a morning to soak in all of Spring's abundant return.  I watched as the birds busied themselves, singing and building, singing and flitting about, nose to the task.  The hummingbirds are back, too, after their long journey.  Listening to their signature hum as they buzz in and out of the garden to feed and then back to the tall treetops.  And talk of signature hums, the bees are in full orchestra, putting on a concert - jam session style!  Heaven.  This must be what heaven is like, I've decided.   

I took my ol' trusty friend for a garden walk because, well, I want to remember how the colors look bouncing off the light and the celebration that Nature's singing joyously, proudly, fervently that the sun, (that glorious, wonderful star of ours!) has returned and melted away the dingy grays.    

Please, friends, help yourself to the images within this collection.  If you'd like a new wallpaper image for your phone or computer background.  Or even for your Google Gmail account or similar.  Wherever you choose, these images are my gift to you.  They are much too small to print, though, but if you'd like to brighten up your online space, please help yourself to do just that.  I hope you'll enjoy!!  :)

Mother's Day Portrait Sessions

May is just around the bend, friends!  And with the beautiful month of May brings fragrant blooms and Mother's Day.  I want to honor all Moms with portrait sessions and I've designed packages to suit every need I could possibly think of.  If you are thinking about a large group of family members or keeping it as simple as you'd like it, I have you covered.  Taking into consideration also for those families with kids away at college, I added in an extra date just for you.  So, let's make a plan to create beautiful portraits this May, together, at my in-home studio.  Weather permitting, we'll get outside also for a nice variety of images for you to choose from.

All Mothers attending a portrait session with me will receive a
fresh bouquet of flowers! 

Also... a CD of the purchased images from the online gallery will be included in each package.    Families will have access to print the images on CD up to 4"x 6" in size, as well as greeting cards.  

For additional family members, greater than the 8 included in the collections listed above, add $15 per person to the overall investment fee.

A $50 deposit is required to secure your sitting date and appointment time and may be paid by sending a check payment directly to me or I can send you a PayPal invoice if using a credit card. 

To get started on the booking process, simply send me an email (  with your available date, how many family members and possible times.  All portrait sessions will be held at My 3 Girls Photography's Studio (both indoors and outdoors too).

I look forward to this special time with you, treating Mom to a day she'll always remember!

Special Announcement: Mother's Day Weekend

First off, I have to say that each and every mom in the photos below have my utmost respect and love and gratitude.  Motherhood is truly a remarkable journey - that deep pull to create a life, a family, isn't always the easiest call to answer, but these ladies know it is the most rewarding.  If any of the familiar faces below take me up on my offer, you have a special thank-you gift awaiting you Mother's Day weekend.  :) 

My offer!  Mother's Day is quickly approaching and I've worked up mini-portrait sessions to delight and honor every possible mom under the sun!  Mommas, Grandmoms, Great-Grandmoms, Adopted Moms, StepMoms, FurMoms...  I think you're getting the gist.  Have you been thinking about having a multigenerational photo created?  Or possibly you've been wanting to treat your Mom to portraits?  Or, if you're like me and are always the photographer, you simply want to be included in your family's portraits for a change of relaxed pace - make them remember that you were there, too!!  Any of these scenarios - or ones I haven't even dreamed up yet - are ready to come to fruition.  I've designed collections that are sure to please every mom and fill your walls and home/office with family portraits!  

Pressed for time in your busy life?  Than this is the perfect opportunity you've been waiting for...      

The details: 

When?  Sunday, May 14 - Mother's Day

What time?  Portrait sessions are limited and will run on 30 minute intervals beginning at 11:00am and ending at 3pm (the last appointment will be 2:30pm).   

Where?  In Barbara's backyard and in her outdoor, natural-light portrait studio, 322 Westley Road, Mohnton.  

How to book?  Contact Barbara by email: to set up your appointment.  

How long after can we see our photos?  You'll book a separate "Reveal" appointment to make your selections and fill your photo orders also at Barbara's home office.  If there's no alternative, convenient reveal appointment for you within 2 weeks of Mother's Day, than Barbara will send you an online gallery and password via email to fulfill your own photo orders.  

What's the cost?  There are 3 collections offered, however, a la carte options are available.  A minimum purchase of $50 is required.  There is no additional session fee.  For each printed image chosen, a duplicate keepsake digital image (JPG file) will be offered to you for online sharing and storing on your hard drive at no additional cost. 

Make mom happy this Mother's Day with an honorary portrait session, gather the family (pets are welcome) and let's make some wonderful memories for the most special lady in your life. 
I look forward to having your smiling faces come visit me on Mother's Day!  We're going to make precious memories for mom to treasure for a lifetime!!  :)
