in home family lifestyle session in lexington ky


Oh my goodness…I didn’t think I could love anything more than their newborn session, but now I’m in love with this one…so there’s that :) 6-10 months is one of my most favorite to photograph. This is when their little personalities begin to really shine through and they usually have a little chunk on them by then…which I LOVE.

My goal for your session is to always show the beauty in this stage of life. To take the pressure off, I assure you that if we need to we will redo it or do a smaller session to capture what we weren’t able to before. Because, ya know what, little ones have off days. I swear when they know I’m coming over they decide they won’t nap that day. I can’t tell you how many people have shared that their little one usually naps, but not on that day. The thing is, usually we are able to have a successful photo session even if it doesn’t feel like it. Sweet N was just off this day. He hadn’t had his usual amount of nap time and was teething like crazy. So, we did the session and decided I would come back for a little mini session to capture anything we missed. But oh my goodness…did we ever get so many beautiful images from the first session and the second one was just icing on the cake. You’ll see images from both sessions in this blog post :)

Seriously…my heart just smiles so big when I see this sweet family and the way they love each other. THIS is grumpy N. He’s just such a happy baby! And he is loved so incredibly well. I’m so thankful to watch him grow and cannot wait to see what the coming years bring for him.

We started with momma waking him and seeing the joy on his face as we walked into the room. There may have been a mix of pure confusion as she’s not usually joined by a lady with a camera in front of her face. Then from there it was just doing all the normal things. Getting dressed, playing in their room, some truly yummy lunch (seriously…I’m trying to convince them to do a baby food book), bath time, nursing, and night night again (since he didn’t get his first nap all out). Y’all, this is it what lifestyle photography is all about. Showing your love, the realness of it, the every day of it. All those little things that you don’t want to forget. It all passes way too quickly. I want to hold onto every single bit of it and I want that for you too.

So much love,

Cilla

family sunset session at talon winery & vineyard | lexington, ky


The sunset danced around us as the girls giggled the remaining light away. There was so much snuggling, laughing, twirling, and love. My heart nearly burst. With each moment, each click of the camera, I fell in love with them all over again. This session came after several years of trying to pin down a lake session. 2018 seemed to be the year that the lake session would finally happen until I made one of the biggest goofs I think I’ve ever made. How could this “seasoned pro” leave home without at least one fully charged battery?!? Yes…I’m going to admit it…I drove an hour before I realized it. Thirty minutes before the session. All of my batteries were dead. Completely dead. I always check my cameras before I leave, and I did check my memory cards, but somehow missed the flashing dead battery signal. I just about died right there. I called them nearly in tears. Y’all, how could I be so lucky to have client friends who dish out so much grace? I didn’t quite give myself so much grace, but I did drive home, immediately charge all my batteries, and turned on some netflix. Later we chatted and decided to go for a Talon sunset session (of course at no charge) and will try the lake again this year. It IS going to happen and I can’t wait. This entire session all I could think about is how much fun we are going to have at the lake.

These girls kept me absolutely cracking up the entire time. I am sure they fight like all siblings, but I didn’t see a bit of it. All I saw were two girls who made each other laugh…a lot…and loved each other fiercely. I loved how they attacked each other and their momma and daddy with hugs and kisses. G’s love is especially fierce and so is her personality. She could take you down with a great big G hug. B always makes me laugh because he LOVES… ;) …photos. One of my favorite memories of B is a session we had together when they were just a family of three and we were in the literal freezing cold. B was not happy. We were all freezing. But now, I laugh at just how perfect it was. It shows just how much he loves his family. S is such a good momma and I am so thankful to call her friend. She truly enjoys her girls and let’s their personalities shine. She lets them be. And, y’all, she is filled with so much grace and beauty.

I am so thankful they continue to choose me and trust me, year after year.

One last thing…I am in love with Talon Winery & Vineyard. Seriously. It’s where we had our wedding reception many years ago and I’ve loved it ever since. When we are choosing a location for family sessions I always love to shoot in my client friends homes, but I also love shooting in a big open field…especially at sunset.

So much love sweet friends,

Cilla

spring session update | central ky family photographer {priscilla baierlein photography}

Oh, sweet friends…can I tell you how absolutely excited I am that it’s actually SPRING!?! I have little tiny pepper and cabbage babies growing in milk jugs…there is sunshine…and warmth…and the trees have started blooming. I mean…Bret’s allergies aren’t thankful, but my heart sure is! Which means it’s also time for Spring & Summer minis! The calendar opened up at the end of last year, and many spots were booked…let’s book up the rest! This is going to be the best year yet and I cannot wait to see so many of your beautiful faces!

These sessions are meant to be fun and truly capture your love for one another. That is all you have to do…be yourself and take the time to love that sweet and wild family of yours. So many snuggles and so much laughter happens. Sometimes it feels a bit chaotic and fast with bits of sweet snuggles in between. Worry about your kiddos sitting still for photos? Perfect…they don’t need to! This is about them being themselves and us capturing all that wild beautiful love!

2019 sessions and once a year savings | central KY family lifestyle photographer

lexington-ky-family-lifestyle-photos-by-priscilla-baierlein_0702.jpg

Hi, friends! So, how is your holiday season going so far? Oh how I wish I could see each of you and give you a big warm hug and a candy cane. Let’s pretend that’s happening, shall we? Y’all this year has just flown by and, guess what, Priscilla Baierlein Photography has moved right into our 10th year (on October 25th to be exact :))! How can that be? Most of that time I’ve spent as a momma trying to figure her way around all the things and you have given me so much beautiful grace. I am eternally grateful. Because of that grace I continue to do what I love and show you your love. All through next year we will be celebrating our 10th year together with lots of fun little celebrations and maybe a give away or two ;) For now, let’s start with our once a year session savings and 2019 calendar! Here are a few things that are going on (Those subscribed to the love filled mailing list have had the details for about a week and in fact this was suppose to end Monday! Whoops…looks like we will extend it until next Monday! Yay!).

NEW PRICING

Y'all, I'm so excited. It is simplified. It is all inclusive. It allows you to pay "as you go" (deposit and two other payments split between the session and when the gallery is ready) and upgrade at any time. I am able to edit more images and not worry so much about doing so. It gives you choices (built around the collections we have had for most of our days). And it makes me oh so happy to know you automatically will walk away with some form of prints in addition to our prized high resolution digital image files.

Simply click HERE to view the new and improved pricing (and see lots of lovely pictures too)!
 

2019 CALENDAR & ONCE A YEAR SAVINGS
{signature | minis | day in the life | birth | travel}
Remember, as long as you have love, you have everything you need for a session. Don't wait for everything to be perfect...to lose those last ten pounds (or the first)...the landscaping to be finished...the braces to be off...the kids to not be little crazy crazies...the house to be tidy...I promise, none of those things will matter when you look at these...or more importantly, your kiddos look at these, in 20 years.

There has been something extra special about the work we have created together this year. It’s been some of my most favorite work yet. I will leave you will leave you with a handful of my absolute favorites from the last few months. I have so so many more to share!

I love you all so dearly. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for choosing me.

So much love,
