CHILLY family photos

A few months back I attended a fundraiser at Sydney's Salon in Coopersburg to benefit a young family that was battling cancer.  Photographer Jeff Sabotta of Sabotta Imagery was so generous to donate 3 photo sessions for the raffle at the event and I was lucky enough to WIN!  Sabotta Imagery is a Lehigh Valley Family and wedding photographer that specializes in candid lifestyle photography.

I was thrilled to hear about winning the session and set out right away to schedule an appointment. We scrambled to schedule before the holidays so we could put together a Christmas card to mail out.  Weather and scheduling conflicts pushed our session back to late November making for a chilly photo shoot! Despite the frigid conditions, wind and uncooperative children Jeff was amazing, patient and creative with the few smiles our kids were willing to give.

We jumped in and out of the car warming up between shots for the better part of 2 hours working hard to keep everyone warm and (relatively) happy.  Jeff was easy to talk to and we came to realized we had a good bit in common (a love for Vermont, hockey and some mutual friends!). He engaged our children making things fun and entertaining for them (as much as possible considering the cold). 

I was impressed by Jeff's interest in hearing about what we wanted for our photos and willingness to talk with me at length prior to our session.  He truly understood my desire for candid shots that captured our children's personalities and our family dynamic as it exists now.  Jeff's photography style aligned very much with my preferences for photos as I have never gotten much pleasure out of studio style photographs and always enjoyed the "imperfect" nature of candid, lifestyle photos.

Please enjoy this little peek at our session...

 Her only smile of the morning.

 Very reminiscence of our wedding photos

Yep. She's got spunk.

I was so impressed by Jeff's ability to capture our children's personalities, out little one loves to snuggle and is always close to momma, our older one is spunky, energetic, always moving, running or jumping.  Their different personalities are well captured in our photos and because of this we will forever be able to look back and recall these young years.

We were able to snag a few quick shots of our extended family before closing up the session. These are a few of our favorites.

We are so satisfied with our session and we definitely be seeing Jeff again in the future for more photos to capture our growing family. Thanks for looking, if you are interested in booking Jeff for your family photos don't hesitate to e-mail him at We are beyond thrilled with our session and look forward to scheduling with him again this spring! Thank you Jeff!
