Amanda & Andrew

Highlights from Amanda & Andrew’s wedding on the Autumnal Equinox in September 2018! We made a special stop at Pete Wentz Farmstead where Amanda used to be a docent on our way to their wedding venue. Thank you to Laura for shooting with me!

Dawn, Kaitlin & Kathy

I was so excited when Kaitlin told me the idea she had for her daughter Dawn's photo session. Kaitlin's Mom, Kathy, still had a dress she wore when she was 1 year old, and she was hoping to capture Dawn in the dress as well! Little did I know Kathy and Kaitlin would also have all kinds of toys from Kathy's childhood for Dawn to play with during the session. Dawn was adorable as always, just having fun playing around! I couldn't believe some of the classic and sweet poses she did when I was editing, which I guess is the magic of spontaneity that I love so much. When you don't ask your subjects to do anything but to have fun, and the joy that comes through.

I had a great time capturing these lovely ladies spanning 3 generations, and loved the special props and ideas that have so much meaning and history that they brought to our session!

Bethany & Dewey's Solstice Engagement

I was so honored when Dewey asked if I would document his engagement to beautiful Bethany! A little background, Dewey is my hubby's good friend since middle school! I have had the pleasure of knowing Dewey for the last 13 years, and he is one of the most creative, talented, smart and kind people I've ever met. Which is why 7 years ago when he started dating the equally creative, talented, smart and kind Bethany, we were thrilled for them! They are a beautiful couple inside and out, and we are so happy they are going to do this crazy thing called life together.

Hubby and I went down to Philly to meet Bethany and Dewey for a celebratory dinner, which Bethany thought was to celebrate some big things going on in our life (more on that in another blog post). Dewey had told Bethany I wanted to take some couples portraits of them in Washington Square Park, next to Talula's Garden where we had reservations. Well folks, constantly having a camera with me for the last 17 years paid off. Bethany didn't suspect a thing! We all strolled through the park on the brisk winter day, at one point even talking about how seeds from one of the trees planted there went into space! Bethany had no idea what was about to happen! All I kept thinking is, "OMG they're about to get engaged!!!" Thank goodness Dewey was able to play it more cool than me.

It was so wonderful to be there for their special moment. There were tears, laughs and a lot of smiles. We walked around Old City Philly and took a few more portraits before a big dinner, with lots to celebrate. Congratulations Bethany and Dewey! So much love to you both!

Holiday Sessions 2016

I almost named this blog "Better Late Than Never..." I can't believe it's been 6 months since my last blog post! The lack of posts has not been for a lack of beautiful photo sessions. In fact it's been the opposite! Then add 2 family destination weddings, 1 southern US road trip, 1 vacation with my hubby and 1 vacation with my best girlfriends, I blinked and it was 2017.

So I'm going to slowly look back on the last 6 months and share some really wonderful adventures and sessions with some of my favorite people!

To start, here are some sessions from Holiday Season 2016. Big thank you to these 3 adorable families for helping me get in the holiday spirit! Happy New Year all!
