Lucy & Quin, growing up fast moodybabies

One of my favorite families!  Lucy and Quinny are growing up so fast.  Last I had seen Quin he was around six months old, he has changed so much.  Lucy is as silly and goofy as always, certainly not camera shy. 🙂

We started our session by waking Quin from his nap.  He wasn’t too happy to be awake at first.
Lucy as adorable as always.undefined
She is very close with daddy.undefined
making faces for the mirror.undefined
We played with some bubbles.undefined
Checked out the bugs in the garden.undefined
Lucy doing her best Vogue.undefined
Quin is such a handsome little guy.undefinedundefined
Quin not far behind his adventurous big sister.undefined
Love this.undefined
Lucy had to leave a birthday party early for our shoot and didn’t get to have any cake, so we took her for some ice cream.undefined
We made many attempts to get a “normal” family portrait but really this is the normal I think for these guys.  I love this.
Lucy climbing all over daddy, Quin wanting his own space and just having to give in to it all.undefinedundefinedundefined

Its always a blast with you guys! Thank you for having me out.
Enjoy your slideshow!!

Racquel & Danny, Ridley Creek Park & Mainline engagement shoot.

Racquel & Danny are two of the sweetest people. I had a lovely time with them on this shoot. These two first met when they were around the age of 13!  Racquel’s Dad’s business moved them around a bit.  She met Danny when they lived in England. They were just friends back then, until a few years ago when she went back to England and had a little reunion with some friends from her time there.  Danny was in that group and the rest is history.  He moved here not long after that and for they got married soon after that to ensure his stay in the US.  So they never got to have a celebration with friends and family.  That is changing this year.  There will be proper wedding with friends and family surrounding them and celebrating them coming up  in July.  It will be quite the party and I am excited to be a part of it.

Danny brought along his guitar.  The best way ever to start a photo session.

This is “Ridley” as we chose to name him.  Just a stray cat at Ridley creek who chose to hang out with us on our shoot.  He was very sweet and loving with a deep raspy meow. We were a bit relieved when at the end of our time there he went on to something else, if he had still been following us we may have taken him home… (Racquel & Danny have two cats at home and were commenting on how nice it would be if they would cooperate for photos.  Well, Ridley was our supplement cat.)undefinedundefined
Love this little moment.  undefinedundefined
So sweet!undefined
Shoe comparison.undefinedundefined
Danny enjoyed this exercise. 🙂undefined
You guys are awesome. That’s all I have to say about that.undefinedundefinedundefined

Too too fun! You guys are naturals.  I look forward to seeing you in the weeks to come!!

A little fun for Monday.

Happy Monday everyone!  Coming back this week from a little week’s vacation.  My brother and his girlfriend were in town visiting so I have been busy playing tour guide and in charge of relaxation time.
Not bad for a little much needed vacation.


Thought I would welcome you all back this Monday with a fun spur of the moment shoot I had with my brother yesterday before we sent them off.
He bought these giant Reese’s cups in NYC at the Hershey store on Times Square in the hopes we could do some kind of fun shoot with them.
The wall in my dining room proved the perfect spot.  Enjoy and I am not responsible for your cravings for peanut butter and chocolate today. 🙂undefined

Sarah & Ben, Philadelphia Engagement Shoot

I had so much fun with Sarah & Ben! Ben is hilarious and I was in stitches laughing the whole time.  (Think of Charlie from Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia, he sounds just like him.)

These two are an awesome couple.  They have been together since high school when Ben got the nerve to ask Sarah to the junior prom! Ben is the best friend of one of my grooms from last year, so I know what I am getting into with this crowd that’s for sure. (All good fun!)


“Lets do this” 🙂 (wink wink)

We started off with their pooch Harley. Handsome Harley.undefinedundefined
What else do you do with a bulldozer in South Philly?undefinedundefined
They love the view from South Street Bridge, so that was our next stop.undefinedJust a little of their personality.  This is what Sarah did to Ben when I asked her to surprise him…..
One of, if not my favorite.undefined
I also really love this one.undefined
This garage was amazing, so we decided to take a few shots in front of it. undefinedundefined
At the spot where Ben proposed to Sarah.  undefined
To end the night we thought it would be fun to take the Buddy (scooter) out for a spin.undefinedundefinedundefined
I couldn’t choose between this one and the B&W version below so I opted to show you both….undefinedundefined
You guys were/are awesome.  So much fun and I look forward to seeing you in October!!!

Marianne & Scott, NYC engagement shoot

We met up with Marianne & Scott after our shoot with Kyle & Andrew. We met in Central Park and took some of Marianne’s favorite paths through the park. She is lucky that she gets to walk through the park everyday to work.  These two are getting married in July up in the Finger Lakes, I am very excited to explore the area!

So many neat spots hidden in the Park that I had never seen.  Loved this arch.undefinedundefined
Adorable, no?undefinedundefined
I was happy to have Don in NYC with me to help with some off camera lights.  The shoot wouldn’t have been the same without his help, thanks honey!undefinedundefinedundefinedPretty amazing views from the park.undefinedundefinedundefined
Something I just love about this. undefinedundefinedWe ended the night getting sushi at one of their favorite spots.  Not only was it delicious but we were a bit star struck when SNL’s Fred Armisen and Abby Elliot were seated at the table next to us.   Ya know, just another normal night out in NYC. Great end to a great day. See you guys in less than a few months!

Kyle & Andrew, NYC engagement Shoot

We had a wonderful afternoon with Kyle and Andrew in NYC.  They are both from the Philly area but are living up in NYC so we wanted to do the engagement shoot up there.  These two have been dating on and off since they were in high school, they went to the same college and ended up in all the same places.  It was always meant to be. Andrew proposed on the top of Mt. Machu Picchu in Peru last year and the wedding is set for next May!  Congratulations you guys.

We had a little fun on the carrousel.undefined
These two are too adorable.undefinedundefinedundefinedundefined
Grand Central Station is a big part of their relationship in NYC.undefinedundefinedThey typically see each other in passing on the escalators, when Andrew is leaving work and Kyle is heading to class.undefined
We spent a little time in Central Park, it was a great day with a little chill in the air.undefinedA Favorite. Kyle has amazing eyes!undefinedundefinedTesting Andrew’s jumping skills.undefinedThese two are adorable.undefined

Great seeing you and spending the afternoon! Looking forward to next May!
