Last weekend, I had the amazing opportunity to photograph a longtime family friend's grandson's wedding. Although I had never met bride & groom - Amber and Dan, I felt like I had known them forever. Their love for one another was so strong and it was absolutely beautiful to see their family finally become complete. Amber filled the day with her handmade decorations & arrangements which were the perfect addition to the celebration with close friends and family. After the ceremony at the Delaware Canal State Park, guests joined the happy couple to celebrate at Macaronis for a fun evening of food & drink. Enjoy!
This October, I had the amazing opportunity to photograph Jeff & Katie's beautiful wedding day. These two sure didn't let a little rain dampen their special day. The ceremony took place at the beautiful St. John the Evangelist Church in downtown Philadelphia. Guests then joined the happy couple back at the Germantown Cricket Club for a gorgeous reception overlooking the cricket fields. Enjoy!
Last week, I spent a gorgeous fall day photographing the Bray family in Prophecy Creek Park. Little Hudson was enjoying being tossed around by his daddy and collecting the biggest leaves possible to give his mommy. We made it through our session with the help of some lollipops and reeses pieces snacks. This family of three was so much fun to photograph! Enjoy!
Last week I got to meet the most precious little boy, Alexander Yisrael. He arrived exactly one month early and is absolutely perfect! Proud parents Jackie & Jason just can't get enough of their little snuggle bug, and it's easy to see why. Little Alex slept through the entire shoot until the very last shots where he opened his eyes so wide for our pictures. We photographed little Alex in some very special handmade blankets by Jackie's late grandmothers. It was so special to wrap him up in the handmade pieces of her loved ones. Enjoy!
Check out this gorgeous family from this past weekend's fall photo shoot in Fairmont Park. Brothers Eli & Caleb were all smiles as they ran around and played in the leaves with their mama and papa. I had the opportunity to work with this adorable family several months ago when baby Caleb was born and this past weekend's shoot was just as much fun. Such a gorgeous day to capture such sweet memories! Enjoy!
This Halloween, I spent one of the most gorgeous mornings of the year with this beautiful family in Fairmont Park. Big brother Leo and little brother Mickey were so much fun to watch as they chased each other around and played in the leaves. Little Mickey went thru most of his Halloween candy during the shoot...I absolutely love the pictures of him with his lollypops and bags of M&M's.
Last weekend I spent the day with this beautiful family as they all came together to celebrate their parent's 50th wedding anniversary. Four children, 9 grand children, and close friends & family all came together to celebrate the two people who started it all fifty years ago. The celebration was held at the beautiful Joseph Ambler Inn while guests shared many memories and a delicious meal together. Enjoy!
Meet the beautiful Violet Grace! It was so exciting to document these precious moments of baby girl Violet, her puppy sister Lucy, and her beautiful mama, Meg. Little Violet's nursery was fully designed around her, with violet walls and bedding, it is the perfect space for this little girl to grow up! Her little smiles and coos were so sweet as we took these images. Enjoy!
This past weekend, I had the amazing opportunity to photograph the beautiful christening day of Ava Victoria. Her parents thought of every tiny detail while planning her special day. Ava was dressed in a gorgeous christening gown from babybeauandbell that came along with matching slippers, bonnet, & headband as she was christened in Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church. Guests enjoyed the afterparty at the lovely Baci Ristorante located in Buckingham, PA. The absolutely stunning cake & cake pops were made by Unik Cakes of Warminster. The handmade cookies were from BZ Bee's Sweet Treats. Enjoy!
Today I met the most gorgeous little angel ever. My best friend since middle school welcomed her first born, Violet Grace. Teeny tiny little Violet surprised everyone with her arrival into this world almost 3 weeks early at 2:13 am this morning. She weighed 6lb1oz and was 18" long. Her perfect little features are so beautiful and she kept making the sweetest little coos throughout my visit. I loved spending these first few hours with her as she experienced many firsts...her first feeding, her first snuggles, her first thumb suck, her first sneeze, and (most importantly) her first hair bow. All such special memories that I will cherish forever.
Check out this absolutely gorgeous wedding that took place at Material Culture in Philadelphia, PA. This bride and groom chose such a wonderfully unique venue, which is filled with antiques and collectibles from around the world. Guests relaxed among the beautiful pieces of furniture, dined on tables from around the world, and danced under some of the most gorgeous chandeliers. Emily and Anthony enjoyed every single second of their day and brought the energy of the wedding day to a whole new level. I am so happy for the two of them and their bright future together! Enjoy
Okay, I must admit...There is no better way to spend the day than with a beautiful family as they welcomed their newest little addition, Daniel. When I arrived at the hospital, little Daniel was just about 2 hours old. Being a part of his many "firsts" was such a special thing, and to be given the opportunity to capture these precious moments was even more amazing. Big brother and sister were over the moon to meet their new little brother. Big sister's first words to her mama were "Are you okay, Mommy?" ...melted my heart. Enjoy these images of this new family of five!
This weekend I had so much fun exploring the grounds of the Philadelphia Art Museum with soon-to-be bride and groom, Emily & Anthony. These two have spent the past few years living here in this city and it was so much fun to capture them back in their old neighborhood. Looking forward to shooting their beautiful wedding next month!
