Just a dog and his people….

blog (1 of 1)-8

The Gilmore family is very special to me!  Not only is their daughter Trinity one of my daughters best friends, but they were my VERY FIRST photography clients!!  Over 8 years ago we lived next door to the Gilmores.  I asked Gina if she would let me photograph her family to start building a portfolio, little did I know what this business would grow into 8 years later!

The Gilmores have not had pictures since then and they thought it was about time for some updates!!  They wanted to be sure be sure they included their “furry family member” Tazer.  He was such a good boy the whole session!  I am always amazed how well trained all of Jim’s dogs are.  Tazer roamed the farm and never wandered far, when it was time for him to show his smile, he did exactly what he was told (With the help of a squeaker toy)……Note his head tilt in some of the pictures……I am a sucker for a the dog with a “head tilt”!  Tazer even shared his frothy wet tennis ball with me…HOW LUCKY AM I!?   The sweetest moment was when Trinity turned to me at the very end and asked “can I please get a picture with me and Tazer together”…….A child’s love for her pet brings tears to my eyes.  Our pets are so precious to us and I don’t think we include them in pictures enough!  They are only in our lives for a short time, we need to love them hard while we have them!  Trinity inspired me to take more pics of my pups and my kids this fall (I have yet to tell my kids….but it WILL happen!!)

I absolutely adore this family and their sweet respectful children!  I think they are pretty darn photogenic too!  I hope you enjoy this preview guys!  More to come!

Debonza Family

blog (1 of 1)-16

It has been a few years since I worked with the Debonza family and boy have they grown up since then!  Nick (AKA GREG……..Inside joke!) has turned into a handsome young man and Giuliana is just as adorable as I remembered…THOSE RINGLETS!!

It was the perfect fall evening at Lenape Park!  We captures lots of the beautiful gold tones as the sun set behind the changing leaves!

Thank you for letting me capture your family again this year!  I hope you enjoy this little preview!

Lollipops and Ladybugs

r (2 of 2)Interesting title, right???  I thought it was appropriate…..because sometimes a girl just needs a lollipop to make her happy!

I met the Rosenbum family at their beautiful farmhouse property in East Greenville.  I was greeted by a very active little blonde!  She kept us moving the entire session (OH to have just an ounce of that energy….I wouldn’t need my daily dose of coffee)  I tell parents that photo sessions with a toddler are often dictated by the toddler ;O)  Sessions with little ones are often filled with lots of candid “action” shots!  Watching them explore the world around them is fascinating!  Seeing the wonder through their eyes helps me to stop and appreciate the little things that are all around us!  Whether it’s a tiny Ladybug (as you will see in the shots on their front porch) or a spotted lantern fly…….(OK well maybe we don’t have to appreciate THOSE)………Or even a lollipop….because who doesn’t need a little candy fix now and then!?

And can we just talk about her blonde hair and blue eyes!?  I don’t know about you, but I pay LOTS of money for my blonde hair!

Thank You Rosenbum family for inviting me to your home!  I hope you enjoy!

Guagnozzi Family

edit (47 of 94)

What a treat is was to work with the Guagnozzi family!   There is something to be said about working “older” children that actually do what you tell them to do!  No squeaky toys needed for these boys!

We met at Lenape park….an old local spot for pics.  The white twin bridges are always a highlight, and we didn’t even have to dodge too many bikers that evening!  They even included Pop-pop in on the fun!  We couldn’t have asked for nicer weather!

Thank You Guagnozzi Family!  See you at the pool ;o)

Golden Hour Session at Valley Forge

edit (42 of 257)

 

Valley Forge Park is one of my all time favorite locations for a fall shoot!  The colors and vast hills are breathtaking this time of year!  Add in a beautiful sunset and you have the perfect backdrop for a family session!

Fanny and I have been chatting about this for quite some time!  I have been dying to get my camera on her GORGEOUS family…….as you will see, this beautiful lady and her two handsome men are incapable of taking a bad picture!  They even brought their furry family member along to join the fun!  April was such a good girl and sat still for all her shots!

This session was a blast and one of my favorites to date!  Fanny, thank you for giving me the honor…I hope to work with you again soon!

William

edits (37 of 96)I got to visit a very special boy the other day!  Meet my NEPHEW William!  I have to say he is one of the cutest babies I’ve ever photographed (but maybe I am just a little biased)

I am have been wanting to get some shots of his adorable nursery for so long…..and we FINALLY got around to it the other day!  My sis-in-law was not planning to be in any of the shots, but she was a great sport and threw on a dress over her gym clothes!  Despite having no makeup and hair undone…she still looked beautiful in those shots!  It must be that post pregnancy glow!  The way her son looks at her is more precious than words……

Thank-You William for letting Auntie Jan come over to play!  Here’s to many many more photo shoots to come!

Danielle and Greg

EDIT (55 of 201)

Danielle and Greg are expecting their first baby soon!  We met at Green Lane Park on a seasonably warm and HUMID day!  But thank God pictures never tell the temp!  We even “faked” the real fall with a wool blanket on one shot!

You can tell that Greg is going to be a great Daddy!  He was very protective of his beautiful wife and baby…making sure he held her arm every step she took on those slippery wet leaves (she totally had it covered though)  Watching the two of them together was just the sweetest!

It was a pleasure working with you two!  Blessings to you for a happy and healthy delivery of you little bundle!
