Hallowell family session at Ocean City, Maryland

Family

Meet Jenn, Brad, Jenna, and Emily! They’re a spunky bunch I had the pure pleasure of photographing down at Ocean City, Maryland just the other week.

Jenn and I had been working on arranging this session forever and it finally all came together on one of the last weekends of the summer and the weather was just perfect. A great big “take that!” to the rain that would have ruined what we originally had lined up for the next day.

Jenna and Emily were perfectly sunkissed. I guess that’s what happens when you actually get to live at the beach. How lucky!

Now while you’re sipping your hot cider in 50 degree weather, come to the beach with us and relive our sandy fun!




Jenna, everyone. Everyone, Jenna! Jenna is 8 years old, plays soccer, likes pizza, and wants to be a model when she grows up. Or a waitress. Or maybe something else. There’s a lot to consider when you’re 8; you certainly can’t tie yourself down to a career at this point.



And this is Emily! Emily is 5 years old, she likes ice cream and SpongeBob (especially at the same time) and also likes pizza and soccer.



Together, they’re sisters. Goofing off. Playing house. Splashing in the waves. Making faces. Hamming it up. And having the best time in the world.







Jenn and Brad are also important. They’re good for rides, dinner, and excursions to the boardwalk. Oh, and love and affection and tickles too.





I had a blast with you four! Thanks so much for spending and evening on the beach with me (and for the pizza too!).

Families are like fudge – mostly sweet with a few nuts.

Family Session in Alamo Square
"The face of a child can say it all, especially the mouth part of the face." -Jack HandeyI met up with little 2 year old Alessandro and his parents last week for some fun pictures in Alamo Square.

Check out some of the pictures from our session!Alessandro and Mom shared some very tender moments reading in a big comfy chair by the window. He played with his hair and helped mom turn the pages. I absolutely love little kid features, especially when they're right next to those of a parent. He had adorable little toes and cute little fingers t ...

the Marshalls: a Family session at Haverford College
Two Sundays ago I met up with the Marshall family at Haverford College for a photoshoot. We had Sarah and Brad and their three children: Caitlin (14), Adam (4), and Amelia (2.5). They had won the session at an auction in February at the Gladwyne Montessori School, where Adam is a student. Amelia's sweet little springtime outfit was handmade by one of Brad's realtives (I think it was his mother…).We missed out on the sunny weather that we saw a few days prior but the overcast skies made for perfect soft lighting at the gorgeous school grounds.We started out around the pond and the old weathered shack right there.I love Adam's expression and ...

New Jersey Family Photographer | 1 year | Bailey
If there is ever a question about whether or not you should do a cake smash for your child’s first birthday, the answer is a resounding yes!  But I’ll get to that soon. First, let me show you some RIDICULOUSLY cute pictures of little one year old Bailey and her fabulous parents, Courtney and Ryan.  We met at Strawbridge Park where I first met Ryan for their engagement session about 3.5 years earlier. It was pretty neat to be there with them as a family. Bailey is a doll with such gorgeous eyes and always with a coordinating bow.  Always. Did I forget to mention that Courtney was 7? 8? Months pregnant with Miles at the ...
