For the Herb family, childhood is made of Harry Potter Wands, tree climbing, trampolines, fingerpaint, pets (named Albus, Luna, & Minerva of course)… you won’t want to miss this high-energy, authentic, Pennsylvania family photography session for the Herbs:
Why Rhinehart Photography?
Brownwyn & Greg share, “We love everything about your photography! We were absolutely blown away by our last set of family portraits from you. Just the way that the kids’ personalities really shined through, even Nora giving some side-eye shade for example.”
They continue, “It didn’t feel rushed or like a show, you were able to get so much of just us being us.”
Brownwyn shares, “The kids decided they wanted a trampoline and it went against every bone in my body to buy them one, and they knew it, so they pooled their money and sold their case to us. We agreed and even paid for a little bit of it. They spend hours playing on that ‘broken bone bouncy house’!”
They share, “As far as wardrobe, we let the kids choose what made them feel most like themselves.”
It’s so important that everyone is comfortable in their outfits for portrait sessions!
Harry Potter Inspired Pets
They share, “We love Harry Potter so much that our pets have all been named after Harry Potter characters: Luna, Minerva, & Albus.”
Authentic Childhood Moments
The Herb family explains, “The Overall vibe of the session was real-life, authentic childhood.”
Will in a Tree!
Brownwyn shares, “I really wanted Lisa to capture all of the real-life, authentic moments happening.”
I loved having the chance to capture authentic moments like this one below of Will in a tree!
Dad to the Rescue
Dad helped will down from the tree. Such a fun, real-life moment to photograph during this Pennsylvania family photography session!
A Floral Crown for a Little Princess
It was so fun to watch Nora picking the perfect flowers to make a crown out of.
This pic just makes me smile. At this point, I believe Rowen was trying to convince Nora that the crown looked beautiful.
I love how her little teeth show here:
The Boy Who Lived! (Yes I love HP, too!)
Greg smiles, “I have planted nerd seeds, starting by introducing them to Star Wars. Now they are into Marvel & Harry Potter. We Nerd out.”
Brownwyn adds, “I totally approve.”
They say, “The kids LOVE Harry Potter and don’t waste a moment when given the opportunity to play with their wands!”
One Crazy Year
They share, “It was one crazy year filled with so many not normal things that I wanted to make sure all the new traditions and routines we implemented into our crazy lives were documented.”
Running around in the woods was such a fun tradition to capture!
During family sessions, I always make sure to capture a few more candid photos of the parents, too.
Traditional Portraits, too!
I loved getting a chance to photograph the Herb family again. The last time I photographed them was a few years ago and the kids have grown so much since then!
Love that everyone was wearing Converse too. 😉
Everyone was all smiles during the time we spent taking some traditional portraits.
The kids are too darn cute and make my job so easy! 🙂 Here is handsome Will:

I like this shot of Maeve, I think her spirit really shines through:
Rowen, beaming, beautiful inside and out!
Painting the Night Away
They say, “Our kids are super creative and often find ‘projects’ of their own. Anything from designing their own cupcakes, playing with our dogs, and creating plays, painting everything in sight.”
With such a fun, relaxed session I had plenty of time to get creative with angles, like this photo where I was actually laying on the ground!
I liked the idea of layering to almost make it look like face paint.
I had so many interesting ideas for the Herb family and I’m so glad they were open to them!
The Herb family shares, “The craziness of a big family of 6 living in close quarters during a pandemic really does make things interesting.”
Haaaaa here is a visual for you, guys!
Watch Out For the Paint Zombies!
Greg shares, “Our twins Nora and Will live for making art.”
This statement was so on-point. They were the last two painting at the end of the night!
Greg & Brownwyn share, “We are into letting our kids get messy and be themselves.”
They add, “We say yes to the things that we can now. That’s how they learn, they make and experiment.”
Why Your Current Home?
They smile, “We definitely wanted places that were bright with natural light and green. Most of us love being outside. Next time we will definitely be able to get our photos taken at our FOREVER home.”
I’m so excited for their next Pennsylvania family photography session in their forever home that’s currently being built!
