More than just photography.

We don't think getting photos of your family is just about the camera. At Mudpies 'n Butterflies Photography, based in Dover, Pa., we feel strongly about working with you until you're satisfied that the perfect vision in your head is realized and you have something you'd be proud to display above your fireplace or all over social media.

And that starts with taking the time to get it right, using our decades of expertise, and, to be honest, really loving what we do! We think of custom photography as an investment. As you can see, it's one well worth it! 

Take a look below at our photo package options. We'd be glad to answer your questions as well.



From Cake Smashes to growing up Moments

You know how they say "Kids grow up too fast?" It's true, and that's why we love offering milestone packages. As your baby gets older, we can create themes such as a cake smash or six-month birthday photo shoot.

It's the kind of photography you are so, so glad you got years later. Make sure to book this as soon as you can for scheduling purposes.

Just New

We agree- your newborn baby IS the cutest!

There's nothing we love better than to make connections with families so we can give them timeless heirloom images to cherish forever. The perfect time to do that? When your baby is brand new!

We have neo-natal certified staff who know exactly how to properly handle your bundle of joy to get that "Look how perfect!" image.

Rock the Bump

capturing the natural beauty of pregnancy

The baby bump to newborn baby journey is simply incredible.

The fact we get to capture these fleeting moments for new parents is an amazing blessing. We adore getting to know our clients and watching their families grow from "It's happening!" to "It happened!"

All of your favorite people — and pets! — all in one photo

Weeks and months fly by and it can seem like you can barely get everyone at the same dinner table, let alone smiling in a photo.

But you'll be so glad you spent time with us as we go the extra mile in showing off your beautiful family (even the furry members!)

Senior Portraits

Your baby is all grown up! let's show them off

While they may feel all grown up, we know in your head they were basically just born! We love capturing this moment before they truly step out into the world.

Let us work with you and your high schooler to best show off their personality!

Engagement, Wedding & Just Because you're in love

You see those captivating engagement/wedding photos of friends on Facebook and think, "I want that to be us!" We want you to cherish those memorable moments of love, and make a point of being as low-stress as possible on your big day.

We'll work with you to pick the perfect engagement photo spot, or get the exact look and feel you want in your wedding photography (we love candids!). We even do boudoir, anniversary, and other romantic photographic sessions. Let us know what you have in mind, and we can help elevate the romance.
