Our January was a mixture of trips to Ikea and our “under construction home”… We’ve been waiting impatiently to be able to move all of our things and wait for our baby boy. I somehow completed January’s 365… 1/12 (check)… I snuck in two self-portraits in there, both taken by my daughter Yasmin at 33 weeks and 35 ½ weeks… We are easing into February and getting close to the due date. Head over to my lovely friend Kristi's blog to check out her February 10 on 10...
I’m attempting a 365 project again this year. No rules, just daily photos for 365 days. So far we’re doing very well (but it's only the 10th, lol). I’m excited to be documenting our everyday, and all the things that are happening right now in our lives. Penelope is turning 5 this week and we are getting a ton of work done in our new house. So far we've had some sick days, some freezing temperatures, a lot of snow and a "bomb cyclone?".... We also got to visit our friends , have sleepovers over break, and watch the new Star Wars movie (which we loved). Bellow are a few favorite photos from this month so far. After you check mine out, head over to Min's blog to see her awesome post, she's also doing the 365 and 52 series, wish us both luck! Happy 2018!!!
A gloomy fall day at Longwood Gardens, with the type of weather you like to stay home for, but you wouldn't even guess. I loved photographing this super cute family of four a week before it was decorated for Christmas. Such a great way to say goodbye to autumn 2017!
So many things have changed from the weather to the beautiful autumn scenery, but also in our own lives. We purchased and 'destroyed' our first home, found out we are having our first boy, started remodeling, got our pictures taken by my mom, between so many other things. Things have been busy to say the least, but it has been fun growing this belly, making time for home-school, fall sessions, and our weekly portraits. Bellow are some of my favorite photos taken in September & October. I'm linking to Charlotte of Three Flowers Photography all the way across the ocean, for some lovely fall photos check out her 10 on 10.
I love doing these mini portrait sessions, especially when the family is so easy on the eyes as these folks. I've photographed them many times before and each year we feel more relaxed and ready to get things started. This year we didn't make it for spring photos, but I was so glad to capture them in this beautiful fall setting. The leaves turned 'literally' the night before for their photos. I had been to the same park 2 days before and it was so bland and green. What a happy surprise it was to see it looking this 'fallish'!
I love photographing outdoors and in nature, but every now and then I get to photograph at beautiful places like Longwood Gardens. It is my absolute favorite spot to photograph during the "crazy weather months"... This is a session I did early in the spring of this beautiful family. It was a warm day and we got to do a little bit of indoors and outdoors. They had never been to the gardens and they were in awe with all the beauty. I loved capturing a mixture of portraits and lifestyle photos of their family. Though I had literally hundreds of photos I loved from their session, I'm sharing a few of my favorites.
For the Fourth of July weekend we left Philadelphia and drove for 24 hours to Miami Beach, FL. After one day in Miami we drove 5 hours to our second destination, Clearwater, FL. We loved both locations, each for different reasons. I took over 2,000 photos and wanted to select my favorites for this month's 10 on 10. Now, selecting 10 images out of 2k is mission impossible when I love so many of them. I decided to select 10 images out of one outing I had with my babe Yasmin. We woke up at 6 am one morning to watch the sunrise by the beach. It was absolutely gorgeous and worth every minute. As soon as we walked out my lens fogged up, but luckily became accustomed to the hot moisture. The first image shows the fogged up lens, and I love it! Following are a few of my favorites.
Now I'm linking up to Mary Colleen. Go over to her page to check out her June/July photos.
It was a perfect day to walk around the gardens with these beauties. Our time there started off with lots of sun and a touch of humidity, not long after we started to walk around we noticed that it was getting darker and darker. The storm clouds were forming and we got caught up by some beautiful and refreshing rain. It's always a pleasure to be accompanied by such wonderful people. I've had the pleasure of photographing them twice before. Once when the littlest was still in mom's belly, last year when she was one and this year at almost 2 years of age. I love seeing their love for each other and how sweet and harmonious they are together.
