Baby N | Newborn Lifestyle Session in Philadelphia - PA | Evelyne Lourenco Photographer

How sweet is this family of 5? They welcomed me into their beautiful Philadelphia home this weekend, to photograph the newest member of their family, baby Nicolo. He was constantly cuddled and kissed by his two awesome big brothers, and without any prompting from us adults. They were eager to hold him and give him some love. I loved how their personalities came out and they even pulled some faces towards the end. I wanted to select 5 photos for a quick preview for their parents but I found it impossible since I love so many of them. Here are my favorites…

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!

Baby W | Newborn Lifestyle Session in the W Home - Philadelphia, PA | Evelyne Photography, Portraits & Lifestyle

I had such a pleasant afternoon photographing this sweet baby girl and her parents at their home in Philadelphia, PA. She was the easiest and cutest. Big ‘furry’ brother Marley was right by her side the whole time being super protective. The eagles lost but we weren’t phased. I love the outcome!

The Neves Family | Summer Urban Session in Old City - Philadelphia, PA | Evelyne Photography, Portraits & Lifestyle

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.
