A few years ago I photographed Pamela for a special occasion (click here). She was graduating high school and heading to college to become a nurse. I was so excited when this summer Pamela (a now nurse, CONGRATS Pam!) contacted me about doing a session with her mom and siblings. She told me it was her mom’s birthday, and she and her siblings wanted to give their mom a photo-session as a birthday present. We decided to use Core Creek Park as the location, because of the beautiful sunset and view of the lake and it was a perfect choice. I loved to see how much they care for their mom, and how in tune they all were. Here are a few of my favorite photos from their session.
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!
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!
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.
