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 and Downtown York City, Pa., we feel strongly about a STRESS FREE experience and planning with you until you're satisfied that the perfect vision in your head is realized and you have a styled dream session producing timeless images you'd be proud to display above your fireplace or all over social media for years to come.

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 not only as an ART and our passion but as an investment in capturing your memories and milestones and well worth it! 

Take a look below at our photo services, we offer many 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, six-month birthday sitter session photo shoot, TWEEN confidence boosting session, ALL about ME session focusing on their hobbies or just a Let them Be little toddler shoot where we capture natural play and smiles during an interactive session- keep in mind we will include family shots as well, may as well, right?

It's the kind of photography you are so, so glad you did even years later. Make sure to book this as soon as you can for scheduling purposes, ask us about our long list of options.
