Coming from a large family of eight kids, I know the importance of capturing “the gang” all together. These two sisters reached out to me expressing that they wanted to give this family photography session as a present to their father who was celebrating his 70th birthday. What a precious gift… not just another shirt, tie or gift certificate but something with a very personal value. I can always remember the joy on my mother’s face when she saw that her eight children had secretly had a portrait created for her birthday. Although it was not a surprise gift for him, I hoped their dad would feel the same joy. We all met at Barclay Farmstead in Cherry Hill, New Jersey and they shared laughs and hugs through out the whole photo shoot. You could see the love they had for each other. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your celebration!!!
I have the pleasure of photographing this family for many years, starting with the parent’s wedding and special highlights in the children’s lives. Their father owns a Extreme Karate & Fitness in Huntingdon Valley, Pa and every year I do school pictures of all the students so I have seen these girls be warriors as well as little princesses. My Studio in Marlton, New Jersey provided a great location for the Communion Photography Session and of course her older sister participates in the pictures too! I always let the kids be silly in a few images which shows true personalities and relaxes them. Always fun times with the Leibert Family!
