Birthdays are a “Special Event” to be celebrated. So this Birthday of 100 years is such a milestone! Family and friends traveled from around the country to shared this event with their loved one. Not only was she a daughter, wife, sister, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, friend but also just a beautiful person! I was honored to share this party as their photographer at the Tavistock Country Club in Haddonfield, New Jersey. This party was filled with laughter, hugs, toasts, stories and best of wishes. Happy 100th Birthday and many more!!!

This wedding day was filled with laughter and fun joining two wonderful families. David who is an avid fisherman was so lucky to have caught Kim! The day started out cold but sunny so we were able to capture some beautiful outdoor winter images. The ceremony took place at Our Lady of Hope in Blackwood, New Jersey and was so intimate being that the priest was the Bride’s cousin. Afterward we headed off to Tavistock Country Club which made for a beautiful photo backdrop since it was decorated for Christmas. Kim and David snuggled together for these images and you could see the love for each other. The reception was highlighted by a fantastic ballroom dance that impressed the audience. Kim is an accomplished ballroom dancer and David “the fisherman” took dance lessons to compliment his partner. Tony Weaver and I had so much fun capturing their party. Wishing them a very happy life together.

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!!!
How cute is this baby!!! As much as I love Sessions in my Marlton, New Jersey Studio, it is always fun to go to the client’s home for a Newborn Photo Shoot. Most of the props were family gifts for the baby to include a little pink outfit, fur hat and beautiful blanket. Only a few days old this little girl was smiling when she was not sleeping. A Life Style Session done in one’s home lends itself to a “natural feel” of a newborn with the focus on the baby not so much on a scene with props. Newborn photography lends itself to many creative styles that you can select for your preference.
In today’s world, it is so important to represent your brand and yourself on Social Media and the Internet. A Professional Head Shot provides the potential client with their first impression of your business. What do you think a “Selfie” says about you? Fast, cheap, low quality service? Business Head Shots can also increase your SEO ratings when a consumer is searching for your type of service. A photograph is “content” to help build your brand.
The Autumn colors were pretty but not as beautiful as these two people in love. Not much coaching was needed for snuggles, kisses and hugs. The weather was perfect for this session in Cherry Hill, NJ at the vintage Croft Farmstead. Wishing them much happiness together!
It was so great to see this family again for their outdoor photo session in South Jersey. I have really enjoyed sharing some of the biggest moments of this family’s life to include photographing their wedding, newborn son and baby’s first birthday. Little “Z” was really funny with all of his expressions from great big smiles to pickle puss faces, love them ALL. And you can see by the pictures that he was quite the character! Bubbles, canoe, tippie toes on chair…what a fun day they had!

Despite the rainy weather in the morning, Danielle and Joe were all smiles with the excitement of their wedding day. Their religious ceremony was held at St Gregory the Great in Hamilton, NJ and afterward the sun came out to shine down upon them. Since their reception was at The Merion in Cinnaminson, NJ, they opted to do all their wedding formal images there. The Merion provide so many beautiful scenes for their photos both indoor and outdoor. The Merion Reception was shared with lots of laughter and fun with families and friends. We really enjoyed watching Joe and Danielle on the dance floor having fun! Wishing Danielle and Joe a very happy life together!

What a wonderful outdoor wedding celebration in Wayne, Pa! The weather was crazy 94+ degrees, sun, rain and clouds. However it did not dampen the fun. The bridal party ditched their formal wardrobe after photos for shorts, tees and sundresses to be comfortable in the extreme heat. Kelly kept her wedding gown on all day because she was so in “love” with it. The 200+ people partied all day long!
Capturing this Religious Milestone is so important. Do you ever look through “old photographs” of your parents? Well someday these portraits will be viewed by future generations. Such wonderful memories to be shared. We offer studio and on-location sessions for this portrait event. Our studio scenes feature contemporary as well as old master style backdrops. The poses consists of serious looks to resemble the old master style as well as those “big smiles” to showoff the child’s personality.
