Rees Family, Ocean City beach Portraits

I spent the day with the Rees Family down the shore in Ocean City. I’ve known the family for a long time now, working with Bill and Amy at Drexel. Its been a super long time since we did the last big group family pics. This shoot was a surprise for the grandparents. We had some casual beach time, just candid pictures documenting the summer. Then everyone went back and showered to head back to the beach for some more family portraits. It was a fun day, great family and lively kiddos. 🙂 Thanks for having me!
This looked like so much fun! Who doesn’t like getting launched into a wave?
One of my favorites.

Hilde & Brian, Aldie Mansion Wedding

When we arrived to Aldie we saw a girl running around the ceremony site doing work, at first we figured it was the florist. As we got closer nope not florist but Hilde! Working on her decorations. Girl was making a final decision on decor, to have a runner or not to have a runner. We helped her figure out what looked best and sent her on her way to hair and make-up. Only one bride I know would be running around like that on her own wedding day, Hilde. It could have been straight out of a Disney movie it was so cute.

Venue: Aldie Mansion
Florist: Whole Foods Florist
Wedding Planner: Kimberley Bates with Aldie Mansion
Hair/Make-up: Daneene Jenson
Photo booth, DJ & Lighting: Synergetic Sound and Lighting
Caterer: Jeffery Miller Catering
Second Photographer: Pete Malone, We always have a great time shooting together. Happy we are on the same team, thanks for all you do.

Starting things out with some details. Hilde’s Bridesmaids dresses were from Anthropologies bridal site. If you didn’t know Anthropologie had a bridal site, you need to know and now you do. It’s a whole new world.

Final touches!Brian cleans up real nice!
Hilde’s dress, stunning!!!!
The first look. Awe.
Beautiful you guys!!
This little ring bearer. OMG.

Ceremony time.A lot of happy tears shed!
Some details. Intro’s into first dance.
Hilde and her mom are best friends, Hilde joined her mom during her speech to be there by her side when she got emotional. So sweet.Every speech was great, Hilde’s dad had a very meaningful speech too.
Bouquet toss! Who is going to catch it?!
Mom!!! How about them apples? haha! Too funny. You go mom.
Rings and straws
This group had a terrible time, can’t you tell?

Samantha & Olivia, moodybaby sisters

This family is growing and Samantha is being a fantastic big sister to Olivia. They are buds.

I spent a few minutes with Samantha before we woke up Olivia from her nap.

Sam is all girl. She loves her jewelry box.
Olivia has gotten so big since I saw her last!!!
Getting so big, reaching for her books.
A few snacks on the counter, we did something similar for Samantha when she was just a little younger than Olivia.
Samantha is all girl, but girl loves to play and swing. 
What a good sister!
Bath time!
A little after bath shot, on tush one big girl shopping in her own closet, she wishes she had a stool to get to the good stuff on the top rack!It was great to see you! I’m excited to see you again in the fall. Can’t believe how fast the girls are growing.

Enjoy your slideshow!

Pete met up with this fun bunch to do a family style engagement shoot in the city. Gretchen and Sean have been together for a long time and married since their first daughter was born, but they never had the wedding, the celebration, the party. At the end of this month they will be having their ceremony at Congress Hall in Cape May. It will be a family event and long awaited party and celebration to remember for sure! Congratulations you guys, the shoot looked like so much fun.

Michelle & Jace, Northern Liberties Engagement Shoot

I had so much fun with Michelle and Jace. We took pictures around their neighborhood and at their apartment, starting at Standard Tap where they had their first date. We didn’t time things exactly right and the Tap wasn’t open yet so we went over to Johnny Brenda’s for a drink and some photos there since it’s another favorite spot. Plus a cold one on warm day wasn’t a terrible idea.

Chelsea and Scott are getting married at the shore so we wanted to make sure to do their engagement shoot where they live in NYC.
We started off at the high line, which is a park created along an old rail line. Its amazing if you have never been.

Aren’t they cute?!

After the high line we headed to central park.

And to end the day a shot on the roof of their building.It was a great afternoon! I’m looking forward to seeing you soon at the shore!

Abbie & Ellie growing up fast.

Its been five years now that I have been photographing this family! Seems a little crazy to think. They have come a long way from those parents experiencing everything for the very first time! They are still experiencing and learning new things everyday, it has made them great parents with a fun and loving family. I’m so happy to watch them grow every year and I have made a great set of friends in them along the way.


Ellie is almost two! Where did that time go?!

Like her sister, she’s full of personality.
Abbie is always in motion, she was very excited to dance for me!
They are a great pair of sisters.

Louie the cat is a saint. He takes all sorts of abuse and torture. He is a great cat.

The faces are becoming a signature move for Abbie. I have no objections.
Everyone, cats included being held as per usual!
The basement has been turned into their very own personal amusement park.Abbie demonstrates the proper way to get into the crib.Watch out world!Our now standard must have shot on the kitchen island. This year it involved chocolate chips and jimmies.
Beating the heat with the sprinkler.
Quite content to chill by the pool.

And just a little something extra. After our shoot there was a BBQ with all of the families from the mommy and me group they were in at the beginning. A five year anniversary party. They are all still close and see each other regularly. They are all moodybaby families as well. I am proud that I have been able to capture each family in pictures over the past five years. Special place in my heart for each of you!! It was great to see you all and be able to spend time with everyone at one time!

My fab five! haha!

Don’t forget the slideshow , there may be some dancing from Abbie!! Thank you guys.
