the Connollys: a Family Session in Grapevine, Texas

Family

I was in Texas last week visiting some of my awesome family. In return for the trip of pure rest and relaxation (including a pedicure), I promised them a fun family photo session.

So Val, Pat, Heather, Andrew, and I took off to the Gaylord Texan Resort and Conference Center in Grapevine. The place was amazing. It had four and a half acres of indoor gardens and waterways.


I love this one of my aunt and uncle. It is one of my favorites of the session.


And I love these of my family.




They had a cheesy saloon setup inside the resort. Because really, what’s Texas without a saloon? I just couldn’t help myself.


The resort had some really cool backdrops. It was sort of modeled after the Riverwalk in San Antonio but with a few twists.

I love Heather’s hair flip!





We walked all around the massive gardens and I’m sure we even missed some parts. We then took some shots in the bowl-like grassy knoll that was part of the property. The light was just perfect.





My Aunt Val even turned the camera back on me with my cousins. I look positively evil but, then again, I was tickling Andrew.


It was a fantastic to see them again and I had such a good time! We had a barbecue, played charades, sat by the pool, and they even got up extra early to eat breakfast with me the morning I left. I have a great family! Stay tuned for my senior session with just Heather!

Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.

Main Line Newborn Photographer | Collins
This little bean had an army of love around her since before she was born. Colleen and Karl didn’t find out until game day that Colleen’s baby bump was a little girl. They debated for a while over names and finally decided on Collins Lillian, Collins being Colleen’s maiden name and Lillian for the feminine first name that her mother was given but never used.I eagerly met Collins about 11 days after she was born and spent a few hours with her.  I love that this is the same home in Bryn Mawr where I photographed the Colleen and Karl's engagement session and Colleen's maternity session.There were times that the session got a bit overwhelm ...

Philadelphia Newborn Photographer | Ciaran
Ciaran Quinn is kinda sorta (but not by much) Irish. That doesn’t really matter. What matters is that I got to meet him mere days after he was born. I arrived at Lindsay and Andrew’s home in Philadelphia (I’m not good enough to know neighborhoods – it was a beautiful street kinda sorta near Penn Treaty Park). I was welcomed by the new parents and their first children: Dudley, a 6 year old Schnauzer mix, and Stella, a 5 year old Collie mix. It seemed like only yesterday (2009) that I was photographing the two love birds in their recently engaged excitement in LOVE Park. It was fantastic to see them again all grown up with marriage and puppi ...
