Adorable little Emma rocked her session. We had a funny start when she wouldn’t let me photograph her face…yep she tucked her face into her chest every time I tried to pose her. But with some patience we eventually got going and she stayed sound asleep for the next 2 hours. Daddy got a very unique portrait holding Emma in his lacrosse stick. Considering our studio backdrops are only big enough for small children I think we did ok 🙂 We tried, REALLY HARD, to wake her up at the end for a couple shots with her eyes open but no amount of cheek wiggling, blast of cold air from the outdoors, noises, or movement was enough to convince her to wake up in her snuggly swaddle and blankets <3
I’m absolutely in love with this session. When Eveline asked me about doing a maternity session in January and she volunteered to do them outdoors, even if it snowed, I knew this session was going to have some epic photos! Come day the day of Eveline’s session and we almost cancelled due to the extreme fog. We don’t have fog too often here so I had no idea how it would affect the photos. I’m so happy we didn’t cancel or I would have missed out on some truly stunning images. Our session started in Eveline’s beautiful home with portraits in front of the master bedroom windows. Natural light is great to work with but with even more diffused light from the fog her photos had a gorgeous natural glow. Following indoor portraits we drove about a mile up the road to Marsh Creek State Park. Upon arriving we learned that the creek had been drained and were able able to walk all the way out to the rocks that normally would have been far underwater. Between the drained bank and thick fog we ended up with almost a dream-like setting for some very unique maternity portraits.
Enjoy! And thanks Pitone family for being so adventurous 🙂
Ok so sometimes friends sessions get put on the back burner for editing but I’m FINALLY done guys! (and hopefully it was worth the wait) Patty and Roger had an incredibly awesome session at Citizens Bank Park and although I was “working” I had to greatest time getting our private tour of all the exclusive areas. I’m so happy for you guys, had such a fun time doing your portraits, and can’t wait for your wedding! (Which yes I’m actually attending as a guest. My 2nd shooter Jessica will be photographing their big day!)
From the warm glowing sunlight, ruby red trees, and natural expressions you’d never know that Nicole and Rory’s wedding day was bitter cold and so so windy. Although the wedding was mostly indoors these two, their families, and wedding party were all such troopers for outdoor portraits at Pennypack Park. Girls I cannot thank you enough for your willingness to all bare the weather in your dresses, and even sit on the ground, just to help me create some gorgeous photos. Afterward the wedding resumed with a reception at the Emerald Ballroom in Philadelphia and the rest of the night was one crazy fun celebration. Congratulations Nicole & Rory!
Caitlin and Jaime were a fun, super-laid back couple to work with. Sometimes weddings get so stressful and become so much of a whirlwind that you forget to enjoy your day. But even a ridiculously late lost limo wasn’t enough to faze them that day. Congratulations Caitlin and Jaime. You made my job and breeze and I thank you for that 🙂
