On a beautiful sunny Saturday we picked Old City, Philadelphia as a location for Leighanna’s 18th birthday session. We lucked out in so many ways, from arriving right on time at each spot, to having the best light and light crowds in every location. Every time we would get to our next location, felt like the exact right time to be there. She had three different looks, and I think each place complimented her outfits perfectly. This girl, she is so beautiful inside and out, with such an amazing personality. She had me WOWing and smiling the whole time at how fierce and confident, yet humble she is. I loved photographing her, and I hope she loves the outcome as much as I do. It was hard to narrow down from the hundreds of favorites I had, but these just had to be shared, especially the last portrait of her with that wonderful big laugh of hers. Leighanna, I know you’ll do wonderfully in anything that you choose to do, have fun as a senior and work your ass off on the next stage of your life as a college girl! XO.
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.
