Blog readers, meet Ben. A perfect little baby, in a perfect little house, with a perfect little family. I really enjoyed this session! It went about as well as a newborn session could possibly go. Ben slept the entire session, regardless of where we moved him or what position we placed him in. The house was only a few months old, was perfectly decorated, and had tons of natural light in almost every room. I love the way the photos came out, hopefully you agree.
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.
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.
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!
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.
This was one of my favorite sessions... Partially because it was a blast to explore the town I live in, Conshohocken, but mostly because Julie and Mark are awesome! They thought they were bad at this posing stuff, but it turns out they were pretty darn good. I think the pictures speak for themselves.
