Baby Marlo, Philadelphia Lifestyle Photography

Marlo, where to begin? She is such a vibrant little girl! One of those babies who is also an old soul, you can totally picture what she is going to be like and look like when she is an old lady. Her parents, Heather and Tedford are dear friends of mine and Marlo is the most fabulous mixture of each of them. I’ve been waiting to do this shoot forever, it was my gift to Heather for her baby shower. Now they are expecting baby number two, a boy! Oh my my my, two Heatherfords running around, watch out world!

You see what I mean about that old soul? Yet all baby.

Chilling with her pals from Yo Gabba Gabba. 
Think her parents photographer her much? Nah, haha! Totally a ham for the camera. 
In Heather’s old baby Dress. Like mother like daughter. All “tude”. And adorable “tude”.
Love it.
To beat the heat in Philly on a hot summers day, Marlo’s favorite past time is to cool off in the fridge. 
hambone much?
The water table has become her personal water seat.
Ah yea, thats better.

Katinka & Nelson, Stone Tavern Farm Wedding

The love and connection at this wedding could be seen in the air. The day started off rainy and windy, this odd little pocket surrounding the farm, we had beautiful skies on our drive up from Philly until we reached the Farm. I like to think we brought the blue skies with us because the skies cleared and it was a gorgeous day, colder than we all could have requested but gorgeous none the less. The area up in the Catskills is beautiful and the grounds of the Stone Tavern Farm are breathtaking. It suited Katinka and Nelson perfectly.

Venue: Stone Tavern Farm
Florist: Sprout Home
Caterer: Mary’s Cookin Again
Make-up/Hair: Jessa Blades/Esther Ahn
Band/DJ: KRoss (DJ) Ted Gottsegen + Band
Videographer: 1st Floor Films
Second Photographer: Alexa Nahas, Alexa has been working with me for a while now and it was a pleasure to have her out. Some of the images below are hers.
Slideshow music choreography: Nelson! Be sure you watch the slideshow. The music that Nelson put together is amazing, everyone proceeded down the aisle at the wedding to it.

Katinka’s dress was simple and elegant. It was so perfect for her.

Some of the getting ready environment.
Katinka’s dress had these wonderful sash’s. They added these amazing pops of color that flowed beautifully.
Nelson, so handsome.
Ready to see Nelson!
Such a sweet first look.
Their ceremony gave me chills. It was so beautiful. Their love of each filled the room. 
Beautiful Ceremony.

Love this gang of bridal party members.
There were a lot of great moments captured.

This reminds me of a painting!! Beautiful.
We snuck out with Katinka and Nelson for some quick portraits, braving the cold and wind.
My ultimate favorite
You would NEVER guess Katinka was six months pregnant would you? Her dress was amazing.
I love this image of Katinka’s dad.
Katinka’s good friend from Germany made their wedding bands for them. I loved them, so beautiful and meaningful.
It was a great party!

There was a special fireworks show to reveal to Katinka, Nelson and their guests the sex of their baby!
There was supposed to be three fireworks set off to get everyone’s attention and then either a red or blue set of fireworks to reveal boy or girl. It was slightly confusing at first, the colors seemed to be mixed. leaving everyone unsure. Nelson called down to people setting off the fireworks to get confirmation and then announced that they were having a baby girl!!! It was such a an awesome moment for them to share with all of their beloved family and friends.
Friends doing bad gestures for the camera!!! But I love it non the less.
And because on this date last year we were all together , me documenting and Katinka couching Emily and Navid to bring their baby girl Laila into this world. It was a wonderful reunion and a new reason to celebrate with Katinka’s marriage to Nelson and the upcoming birth of their own little girl. I adore all of you so much. I feel so lucky to have clients I care so deeply for. I’ve made many great friendships. Last but not least the slideshow! A must watch with Nelson’s music to bring back the feeling we all had on their wedding day. Congratulations you two!
