Liz & Eddie: Pennsylvania Lavender Field Session

Liz and Eddie had the perfect night for their session - not too hot, with the most gorgeous light at golden hour. We met at a lavender farm outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for their anniversary couples session (though it would be perfect for an engagement session, too!). Along with the prettiest lavender fields, there were also horses. These guys were definitely not shy! The second that we walked close to the fence, there they were, joining in the session. This gown (from the studio wardrobe) was perfect on Liz; her beautiful red hair and the muted blue of the dress were such a striking combination. Photographing such a sweet and obviously in-love couple was such a treat. Here's a few favorites from the session!

Powell House Styled Shoot

An old, very sweet friend - Carina of Love Me Do Photography - was kind enough to invite me along to shoot a styled shoot with her organized by House of Catherine. It took place in the beautiful Powell House in Society Hill, Philadelphia, right next to Old City. I've seen lots of beautiful weddings at their neighboring venue - the Hill-Physick House - but never an event at Powell. Bryan and I love historic homes (the newest home we've ever lived in was built in 1922, if that gives you some context!) and I was super eager to see the inside. It certainly didn't disappoint! The second floor of the house is where we spent most of our time, and where the tablescape was set up. The room in the front of the house was the largest, with a beautiful fireplace, chandelier, huge windows, and small piano. A small room sat in the middle of the floor, and the back of the house sat the most amazing (and what felt slightly haunted) master bedroom. 

Angela of Park Ave Cake made a white, three tiered cake and these INSANE macarons. I'm a bit of a hobby baker and definitely appreciate a good dessert, and these macarons were one of the best things I've ever tasted. Meghan of House of Catherine did the design and florals, while Natalia Rosen did the content creation. Admittedly, I'm a big fan of neutrals (my house is various shades of white...and more white) but the blue and green and gold gave me some major inspiration for integrating a little color into my shelves at home. Courtney of The Geisha House provided the wardrobe, Lindsay of Sticks and Stones Bridal provided the accessories, and Sydney of Coffee Stained Lace rocked it all. Emily Dimant (who I've just started following on Instagram and gives me some major inspiration for getting my makeup act together) did makeup and Alison Scott did hair.

Kaleb Newborn Session: Philadelphia Newborn Fine Art Photographer

Kaleb came to me a bit older than most of my newborns - most of my newborns are under 10 days old - but he was such a perfect baby for his entire session. Big brother was such a gentleman holding his little brother. I sometimes have clients who are a bit nervous about including toddler siblings into their session, and as a mother of two toddlers, I completely understand. They always seem to know when their best & most cooperative behavior is needed... and then revert to their basic toddler instincts. I have lots of tricks up my sleeve to make even the most spirited toddler smile (this little guy didn't need to be cajoled at all!) - from "find the sticker!" to pointing out their sibling's tiny nose. This Main Line newborn session had some of my favorite mother and baby portraits; I loved the dress that Samantha chose from my studio wardrobe and the little suspenders for big brother. It was such an honor that this beautiful family drove all the way from Philadelphia to visit me for their natural light newborn session. Here are some of my favorites - enjoy!

Main Line Cherry Blossom Maternity Session

The different types of cherry blossom trees have different blooming times, and we waited a LONG time for these gorgeous pink blooms! This maternity session at Everhart Park in West Chester, Pennsylvania (a bit past the Main Line and maybe an hour outside of Philadelphia) couldn't have been prettier. We started the session in my Main Line photography studio (near Paoli Hospital); Tara chose this off the shoulder dress from the studio wardrobe and I love the way her red hair looks against the blush dress. As a main line maternity photographer, I absolutely love working with expectant mothers. The Philadelphia area has so many beautiful locations for outdoor sessions. Just a bit longer until this sweet babe's newborn photography session and I can't wait!

Kelly & Cooper: Mother & Child Portrait Session in Paoli, Pennsylvania

Kelly and Cooper were my first session in the Motherhood Portrait Event that I held in my Main Line Pennsylvania natural light studio. Cooper is one of the happiest, smiliest, sweetest babies I've ever had the pleasure of photographing. He was all smiles for the session and I was happy to snap a portraits of him crawling around the studio, along with him and his gorgeous mama together. Kelly and Cooper both chose outfits from the studio wardrobe. Children's portraits - especially at this age - are some of my favorites. Little ones change so quickly in the first year of life and a sitter session around 6-9 months can be a perfect time to capture them before it's crawling nonstop. Here are some of my favorites from their session!

Malvern Pennsylvania In-Home Lifestyle Newborn Session

Sweet little Ada was the perfect baby - she slept for almost the entire time I photographed her newborn session! This Paoli newborn session took place in the client's home, which I love - particularly the images of mama and babe in front of the windows.

Natural Light Studio Maternity Session

Between this stunning dress and this gorgeous mama, I don't know what I love more. Could you imagine looking this good at 38 weeks pregnant with your fourth kiddo? Amazing! We chose two pieces from the studio wardrobe: a sequin and tulle dress and a cozy, intimate, casual sweater. I love the light, bright, airy look of maternity portraits in the studio space. This maternity session was a breeze! Looking forward to capturing the sweet babe's newborn photos soon!

Mother & Daughter Natural Light Portrait Session

I absolutely loved capturing the love and sweetness between this mama and her baby girl in this family photography session. I chose pieces from the studio wardrobe, selecting a neutral sweater for mom and a sweet denim dress for her daughter. I couldn't help but try a vintage dress for the second half of session; she was a spitting image of Shirley Temple! This light and airy studio session focused on the unposed and candid moments of motherhood. Children's portraits are some of my very favorite because you have the opportunity to let kids be their normal happy, silly, fun selves. Here are some of favorite photos from the session!

Baby + Mama Studio Session

Have you ever seen such luscious cheeks? This sweet guy was such a doll during his session - all smiles. I love photographing babies (and their mamas!) without many props or accessories; they are perfect the way that they are, and it allows the focus to be on their toothy smiles, plump little legs, and tufts of hair on their heads - all the things that you'll want to remember when they're all grown up.

Main Line Newborn Lifestyle Photography: Grace + Charlie

Sweet baby Charlie was about six weeks old when he came to visit me with mama Grace and big brother Artie. Newborns are so special and wonderful, but right about six weeks is when I've felt like the fog of caring for a new, tiny human began to lift and you can enjoy the smiles, the cuddling, and the peeks of personality that start to shine through. Here are a few of my favorite photographs from our session; I loved how Artie was so attentive to his big brother and indulged in some cuddles with Charlie in between playing with trucks and cars. The natural light studio was perfect for this session, and Charlie looked so sweet in the sweater romper from the studio wardrobe.
