{The Sanoski’s} Longwood Gardens Family Photographer

These two! <3 Peas in a pod! Had me dreaming I was having fraternal twins the night following our session! Meet Owen & Olivia!:)

This spunky duo kept me laughing and running (which is quite the sight to see at this late stage of my pregnancy!) around Longwood Gardens last week.

I love when I’m faced with new challenges during a session & figuring out how to work with it or around it and still have a successful session! This – my last portrait session both of 2014 and pre-baby – was, perhaps, one of the more challenging sessions I’ve had because:

1) Longwood was packed with guests to see their Christmas displays & trying to not get a million people in the background was interesting!

2) It seemed like everyone that walked past us ooh’ed-and-ahh’ed over how CUTE the kiddos were, thinking they were mine & were either saying “Aww, smile at mommy!” or “Stand here for mommy!” or “OH! There’s a really good shot over here if you have them stand here like this.”

3) Additionally, almost everyone who walked past us that was trying to “help” would make bunny or moose ears on me.

Our time together was distractions galore and without a dull moment!:)This 37-week pregnant mama worked hard and we all managed to still have a ton of fun together, exploring all the Christmasy nooks of Longwood together! I’m proud of these shots & think these images really captured well O & O’s personalities, joy & laughter!

Enjoy!

{Kelsey} Main Line PA Newborn Photographer

It’s official, friends! I am a little over three weeks from meeting our baby boy (or, at least, from my due date) and I canNOT wait!!! I have one more portrait session before my maternity leave begins…but I couldn’t have wrapped up the last of 2014’s newborn sessions with a better one than this!

Meet the sweetest family – the Pellini’s! Their darling third-born, Kelsey Jane, was only 9 days new when I got to meet her and capture her portraits! SO. MUCH. FUN! If it was possible for me to be even more excited to meet our little man, this session did it for me! So teeny tiny, sleepy and smiley…so doted on by big brother and sister…so cozy in the arms of Mom & Dad! We made some fun memories and got to freeze them in these photos!

Enjoy, friends!!

{The McCusker’s} Longwood Gardens Family Photographer

Not too many years ago, I spent my summers babysitting in between college semesters. One of the families I grew very close with was the McCusker’s! I watched their family of three grow to four & passed those summer mornings holding Lily, enjoying her sweet newborn stage!

Fast-forward & now these beautiful girls are so grown up (while their parents managed to have not aged in the least!) & I’m now anticipating soon holding my very own newborn in just a few short weeks. I certainly never would have imagined all of those years ago that I would have my own business or have fallen so in love with photography and that I would be able to stay connected with so many people from different stages of life with this gift…I’m endlessly fascinated with the plans that the Lord has for us & how life unfolds in such unexpected ways despite all of the “plans” we try and conjure up along the way.

It was such a treat to spend the morning with these dear friends and document them in the stage where they are…and, considering how fast time seems to be flying lately, I’m grateful for these sweet family moments captured! Enjoy!

{The Callaghan’s} Chester County PA Family Photographer

Lately I have had the unique and fun opportunity to collaborate with the team members from west chester design/build, a growing local business that specializes in producing high-quality home construction & renovation projects in the suburbs of Philadelphia. Even though our businesses are very different in the product we deliver, I’ve come to learn that we share a lot of similar values!

Chris Payson, WCDB’s Owner & Lead Designer, reached out to me to share with me about their company and how they specialize in building happiness. They consider themselves a major step up for traditional remodeling & focusing on their unique features and approach to home improvements. Not only were they wanting to connect with me in order to have some updated team photos taken but they wanted to go a bit further and have family portraits taken of each of their team members with their families in an effort to share the heart of why they do what they do…which is something we share as business owners: Family and happiness are at their core!

Today, I am excited to introduce you to Brian Callaghan, the Lead Carpenter of West Chester Design/Build along with his wife, Jen, & their daughter! Enjoy!
