I'm so excited about this super colorful session done at the Old City District in Philadelphia. Kamilla was the winner of the giveaway I did on Instagram when I launched my new account. She told me how much she loves having her family photographed, so we were a match from the start. We decided to go with an urban setting, since she has had family photos taken in many ‘park’ settings before, but never in the city. I chose the Philadelphia Old District because of the amazing colors and different shades found in the sometimes crumbling buildings. Despite the 90 degree weather they were super excited to walk around the city and find these beautiful walls and doors with me. I love the result.
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!
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.
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.
After having had an incredibly fun session last year with these guys, and even spotting a BALD EAGLE during our session, I thought we could never top it off. Sabrina had seen one of my previous sessions this year at Lorimer Park, which had a family looking down a cliff, and decided that "yep, that's our spot". What a great choice it was for this beautiful/adventurous family. We explored this park like I had never done before. The boys got to climb rocks, run across huge logs, and skip rocks. Honestly, MY FAVORITE type of session. I love an adventurous family! Oh and we even got some portraits in between all the fun. Here are just a few of my favorites.
