Expecting Baby 'E' | Winter Maternity Session at Longwood Gardens - Kennett Square, PA

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.

The 'Koogler' Family | Fall Family Session at Lorimer Park - Abington, PA

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.

The 'Magalhaes' Family | Fall Family Session at Pennypack Park - Philadelphia,PA

We got to Pennypack on a late Monday evening. All I could think was, THE SUN IS GONE, what am I going to do? It was getting dark, but we did not give up. How could I give up after seeing this beautiful momma all made up, with her children and husband ready to have a good time with me? So I bumped up my ISO (camera term, I'm a geek) and looked for the brighter spots at the park. They were just naturals, and within less than an hour I took some of my favorite photographs of fall thus far. Here is their session.

Welcoming Baby 'Lyra' | In-Home Newborn Lifestyle Session - Pensauken, NJ

For the past 10 or so years I've had the pleasure of being friends with Daphne and being there for the birth of her 3 daughters. This was Lyra's first official family photo-shoot. I have so much love for this beautiful family and was so excited to photograph them for the "100th" time! (jk) It gets better and better each time I'm with them capturing their growing love.

The 'Koogler' Family | Fall Session at Pennypack Park - Philadelphia, PA

Not long ago Sabrina posted a message in a forum in which I am a member (and ABSOLUTELY love btw), introducing herself and talking about her newest move from Texas to Philadelphia. When I saw this I quickly messaged her giving her a warm welcome as I know how hard it is to move into a new place without knowing anyone. I instantly adored her. Sabrina is a super sweet and cool momma, we started talking and in a couple of days we decided we would be doing a family session of her and her awesome/beautiful family. 

I thought I'd show them my FAVORITE park in Philadelphia, because I knew we would have a great time with her kids since it is a place where my girls LOVE visiting. And a great time we had! We took a stroll around the park and explored a bit, we saw swans, geese, (questions about fish were asked), and at the end to tie it all up we even spotted a bald eagle which is nesting on one of the tallest trees in the park. I could not have wished for a more perfect day. I'm so glad to have met this wonderful family I hope they enjoy the photos as much as I do!!! 

The 'Kuppler' Family | Summer Session - Pennsauken, New Jersey

I had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous family during golden hour at a playground/park in Pennsauken, NJ. It was such a perfect day, with perfect weather and "yummy" summer light. They melted my heart with their love and connection. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect time. I'm so excited to share this session and I know I say this every time, but can you blame me for saying that this is MY FAVORITE session of all times?! Every client is so special to me but this family is SUPER special because I've been photographing them since her first pregnancy almost 8 years ago. So many years have gone by and she stuck by me. I'm so glad to call her a friend and to be able to photograph her beautiful family.

Expecting Baby 'Rachel' | Summer Maternity Curtis Hall Arboretum - Cheltenham Township, PA

On a Sunday afternoon (more like evening), The A family took me to this wonderful park that I had never heard about before. This amazing place is called Curtis Hall Arboretum, only 20 minutes away from Northeast Philadelphia. I was so happy they took me here (new photo spot). They are naturals, I snapped away as they walked around just being the amazing family that they are. They are so in tune and in love with each other it's beautiful to watch. The family of 4 is expecting another little sister due in a few weeks. I cannot wait to welcome and photograph their third daughter. You will see these little faces a lot more for sure.  

I'd love to photograph your beautiful family. You can contact me here.
