Melanie is 16 | Winter Session at Longwood Gardens | Evelyne Lourenco Photographer

You’re officially old when you photograph a girl, whom you remember picking up as a baby. I remember Melanie as a young kid running around my aunt’s house and being the cutest and sweetest little girl. So evidently it was a great pleasure to photograph her now, as a beautiful, and confident teen. With the current winter weather, we opted for Longwood Gardens in order to have her photos done before her birthday party. The current displays at Longwood Gardens are absolutely gorgeous. We were in awe of the amazing quantity and assortments of orchids now in display. It is an amazing place to have a 16th birthday photoshoot, firstly because of the gorgeous scenario, and secondly because of the warmth. We were able to walk along the Gardens with not even sweaters on right in the middle of winter. I was so excited to edit these photos, and to share them with Mel. Now we will be on the countdown for Melanie’s party, which luckily will be in spring. I can’t wait to see you celebrate with your friends Mel, and capture your special day!

Pamela | Senior Summer Session at Pennypack - Philadelphia, PA

This senior summer session was taken in Northeast Philadelphia at my favorite park, Pennypack Park. Pamela graduated in 2015. She is not only gorgeous and friendly but also a very smart and responsible young woman. Since it was a weekday in the middle of our vacation my two girls of 2 & 8 came with us and they too fell in love with Pam. They both begged me to ask Pam to babysit and even offered me to pay her. I'm so happy to have photographed Pam and to have found her as a sitter for my kids. Wishing you lots of success in your new adventures as a college girl PAM!
