Eliana and Jonathan were a gorgeous couple on their wedding day. I have to say though, they make an even more gorgeous family! So happy to photograph their new baby, Andrew.

Get 25 designer holiday cards for free! It's that time of year to start thinking about holiday cards! Below are some examples of card layouts and fall portrait sessions. See the info below about the November weekday special I am running.
Instead of doing fall mini sessions for my portrait clients this year I am offering a weekday special. I found it very hard to do "mini" sessions back to back in a short time and would prefer a little longer. It takes about 45 minutes to get children to open up and have time to play. The special is $250 and includes 8 retouched high res digital files, a website for viewing and sharing your photos, and a free 25 pack of designer holiday cards! I will travel to any location within 15 minutes of me, some examples are Morris Arboretum, the Wissahickon trails, Pastorius park in Chestnut hill, or the haystacks at the Woodmere museum in Chestnut Hill. Must be Monday through Friday starting around 9 or 10:00 a.m. This is great for dogs and kids and for someone who wants one simple location.

Christine and Andrew got married at the Rivercrest Country Club on September 6, 2015. Rivercrest has some elements that I love to photograph like the tall grass and big tree. Also having a bride like Christine who smiled ear to ear all day helps! They got married out by the pool which was beautiful and made for some interesting shots. Love the colors of these flowers!

As I drove away from this family and house I started to cry. My friend Meredith recently had a 3rd baby and moved to Vermont all within a month. We use to live on the same block when Jesse was born and our children became close. This family was an integral part of my son's development. Before starting daycare we did a year of sharing childcare two days a week, so this house became a 2nd home to Jesse. Meredith home schools her kids and the house was enriched with children's activities and the kind of fun that made a 1-2 year old smile every time he was welcomed at the door. I think I cried for many reasons: Lucie was only 3 weeks old and it was my first and last time I will probably see her for a year or so. I got to just sit and let her sleep on my shoulder while I watched the children play around us. I have not felt that in a long time. An era seems gone in my son's life, he just turned 4 and I feel he is no longer a baby. I miss our times on Pulaski ave. the sounds, the feelings, the smells, all remind me of having a baby. Chickens!!!! I had chickens as a kid and love that Jesse got to experience them. The feeling of community and support were all something that I was fortunate to have in Jesse's young years. Meredith gave me so much motherly advice. I feel like I have great neighbors at my new house, but there is something about having one child and missing the house he was born into. I now know he will grow up so fast and that makes me cherish every moment as I see him frolic in the street with his current friends! Jesse will miss his old friends but he will always have the memories of his first ever friends! (Meredith, I hope you find your "community" again in Vermont and that you have wonderful new memories for your children.)
