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.
This is a collection of some of my favorite sessions taken in Philadelphia, PA and close regions.
OH WOW! What a CRAZY GOOD month. Looking back, I can't believe we have done so much in just a month. We traveled across the country to Utah and met our amazing friend and fellow 10 on 10 member Kristi + her beautiful family. She was kind enough to show us some lovely spots in Salt Lake City and she even baked me a delicious birthday cake for my 3 point O. I am SO lucky & currently craving some of that cake! Back over on the east coast, we have had some hot weather, some not so hot weather, park time, pool time, beach time, farm time, zoo time, chill time, and so much time with friends we love (some not pictured). Enough said, the month was amazing PERIOD. Here are a few photos to show. Linking to the amazing Kristi, who is the next person in our very small circle this month.

January was unusually busy for us this year. I photographed 6 sessions + completed my first month of the 365 project + collaborated in this wonderful project hosted by the bloom forum + we drove 20 hours to Orlando + visited Disney World's Magic Kingdom at day & night (watched the amazing fireworks) and even had some time leftover to visit Sea World (even though we were only there for 2 and half days). Since I already shared our Disney/Sea World photos all over the place, I decided to share a bit of our "daily art time" and Penelope's first "successful P". She was SO EXCITED about it! Next I'm linking up to Mary Colleen and her little crew, you need to check out her beautiful film photos (many props to you my dear friend, you totally rocked it). Then continue to follow our blog circle until you get back to me.
A few weeks ago I photographed this beautiful family at Longwood Gardens in Kennet Square, PA. I had photographed this couple while they were expecting *the now big brother Lucas* and it was such a pleasure to photograph them again. Here are a few of my favorites from their session.
We had a last minute trip to Orlando, Florida and we knew the first thing we wanted to do/see was Cinderella's Castle. It was night. I was so bummed that we didn't make it in time to see it during daytime, but the feeling went away as soon as we reached it. The castle is simply gorgeous at night. We waited for the fireworks show, and as I watched and photographed it, tears ran down my cheeks. It is such a wonderful thing to see even if you're an adult. The girls loved it but I think I was the one overwhelmed with emotions. I'm so thankful for having had this experience with them. Here are some of my favorite captures.
