Meet this pretty little lady, Peyton, and her awesome parents. They had a beautiful home with a ton of natural light, which made for great photos. Peyton was super well behaved for the entire session. Also, how cool is that cork heart piece of art?
Meet the Ray family. They are awesome! They (now) have a 1-year-old daughter named Virginia who is super cute. I shot newborn photos of her when she was about 2 weeks old. This was one of the easier sessions I've shot in a while because they were all so easy to work with... even Virginia. I love sessions like this because we end up with tons of great photos. See for yourself.
It's been a while! I've been neglecting my website for a bit and concentrating on photography and my family. Now it's time to get back on the horse and get some content up on the site!
I had the chance to photography this cute newborn! He was awake and alert the entire session and he was making the funniest facial expressions I've ever seen. I love it when a newborn's personality comes through in the photos! Also, how cool are these dogs, Bacon and Ham?
Sometimes during a session, I can tell the clients are getting tired of taking photos (or maybe tired of my bad jokes) and want to wrap it up. Kamila and Mike were the opposite of that. They were super adventurous, easy-going, and up for whatever. We shot to the last possible minute.... literally. The staff ushered us out at closing with us begging to take one last photo with the sunset.
It’s a lot of fun to shoot sessions like this because we can take our time, get creative, and make some great photos. I really enjoy the way these photos came out. It was hard to pick my favorites to post on here.
How cute is this couple? Dick has been a hobby photographer his whole life so he was always behind the lens (I can relate). For Dicks 90th Birthday, his grandchildren gifted him and Anne a couples session so that Dick could be on the other side of the lens for once.
The more I got to know these two, the more I liked them. They had me cracking up the entire session. They are avid gardeners so I got to tour their beautiful garden before the session. After the session, I got to see some of Dick's amazing photography. I wished I could have stayed a bit longer just to chat and hear some more stories. I can't wait to do the next session for Dick's 100th birthday.
On the morning of this session, the forecast called for a 30% chance of rain most of the afternoon. Liron and I spoke and she decided that they wanted to get the shoot done and we could take those odds. We figured worst case, we'd get a little bit of rain on and off. Well, it turns out that we completely underestimated the weather. It POURED the entire shoot. Luckily, Liron and Shreyas had a great attitude about it. We made the best of the circumstances and bounced around from covered spot to covered spot. This was a pretty challenging session for me, but it was actually a lot of fun. It forced me to step out of my box and think creatively. In the end, I think we got some great shots out of it (mostly because Liron and Shreyas were awesome). The umbrella shot in the rain was a nice little reward at the end. Also, how awesome is their dog, Jemma?
Calvin might be the greatest dog in the world, but Elizabeth & Jesse were pretty awesome too. I had a lot of fun exploring Andorra Meadow in Wissihickon Valley Park with these three. I didn’t stop laughing the entire time. Elizabeth was a total trooper for hiking through tall grass fields while 8 months pregnant. Usually, a large part of my job on any shoot is to help the couple pose. For these guys, all I had to do was point in a place I wanted them and they would set themselves up in the perfect pose. I really like how these photos came out.
I've been so busy shooting this season that I've been completely neglecting the website (sorry). So, to catch you up... I've been all over the Philadelphia area shooting families, newborns, engagements, maternity sessions, and even a few parties. I've met lots of great new clients, caught up with a few old ones, and even got to shoot some pictures of my beautiful niece. Here are a few of my favorites from the spring sessions.
I've been friends with Annika for a while so I was super excited when she asked me to take engagement photos of her and Mark. Shooting with friends is always a ton of fun because I get to relax and try some stuff I wouldn't normally try. Plus, it helps when the couple is fun and up for whatever! We decided on a very Conshy theme for the photos. First stop was the Conshohocken Brewing Company which was perfect because we all got to start the session with a decent beer. From there, we hopped around to a few scenic Conshohocken spots and had a cameo appearance from Lilly and Teddy. We even took one pic in the middle of Fayette Street and lived to show it!
These 6 (including the dog, Charlotte) were a lot of fun to shoot with. They were definitely the most relaxed parents of twins that I've come across. Besides a little incident while shooting without diapers, the session went pretty smooth. The bedroom light was just magical and created some awesome images. Take a look for yourself.
I was ecstatic when Andrew (my brother) and his wife Shani asked me to take maternity photos of them. We planned a fall session at Harriet Wetherill Park, which turned out to be a gorgeous day. As if having a baby in the near future wasn't enough, Andrew and Shani showed up to the shoot with a surprise... a puppy named Luna that they adopted the day beforehand. She had a cameo in a few of the photos.
Fall is starting to wind down, there aren't many leaves left on the trees, and I can finally catch my breath. This fall has been super hectic but a ton of fun! I'm a little behind on posting to the blog, so instead of posting a bunch of session updates like I normally do, I've picked a few of my favorite photos from the sessions that I missed.
