Two Silly Boys – Philadelphia, PA – Child and Family Lifestyle Photographer

Not only are these brothers adorable but they were such fun to be around! I also happen to be a huge fan of a toothless grin – such a great time in a kiddo’s life to capture. :)

Don’t miss the last photo! Mom had an idea that she wanted to try for her Christmas card. Needless to say, the kids had a GREAT time setting this up!

This was a Mini Session (20-30 minutes) so photos tend to be more posed – guaranteeing those special images for cards and gifts. Unlike my typical lifestyle sessions, there isn’t extra time to wander or to play. Even though the Mini is much shorter, the session is always fun!

Stunning Sisters – Philadelphia, PA – Child, Teen, and Family Lifestyle Photographer

These fabulous sisters came from NJ to see me for a mini session. Not only are they gorgeous but they were so much fun to work with!

Check out the last photo – I called in a few favors. *wink wink* What a way to start a session; that also happened to be my first frame. :)

Gorgeous Family Of Four and a Holiday Mini Session – Philadelphia, PA – Child and Family Lifestyle Photographer

I feel like I say this all the time, which clearly makes this statement true: I have the most gorgeous clients!

I’ve known this beautiful lady since pre-school – so needless to say, it was amazing seeing her and meeting her adorable family! We had such a great time being our typical-goofball-selves, it’s a wonder that I remembered to actually use my camera. I’m only half kidding. :)

The golden hour (right before sunset) is probably one of my most favorite times for a session – especially in a location like this one. I love that the leaves were just hanging on and we were able to capture the fall colors before the season changed. Sessions during the golden/magic hour are typically booked first since the lighting is so gorgeous and flattering. My calendar for the spring and fall is filling up – if you plan on scheduling a 2013 session contact me soon!

Thanks for the fun time, guys — can’t wait to see you all again! Oh, make sure to check out the Christmas card that we designed for this family too!

Sunny Fall Session with a Fabulous Family of Six – Philadelphia, PA – Child and Family Lifestyle Photographer

I smile every.single.time. I think about this Mini Session. My sweet client told me that her family really needed an updated portrait and that the kids “HATE to smile for photos.” As we all know, I’m completely fine with clients not faux-cheesing it up – natural is best! I will never tell you (or your children) to smile…yadda yadda yadda, you’ve heard it all before! I also happen to be pretty darn good at making kiddos laugh – not trying to toot my own horn or anything. :) The difference here is, these kiddos are pre-teens and teenagers -we all know this can be the age when smiling can be considered uncool. *pfffft*  I told my client to tell the kids that it would be painless. I promise.

As soon as the session began, I sent the grownups on a little walk and did a few poses with the tweens/teens. See these happy, smiling faces below? …were these the same kids that didn’t like to smile?!? Needless to say we all had a good laugh! Most importantly, I was ecstatic to be able to provide exactly what they were hoping for. The adults love their family images and the kids thought I was goofy enough to laugh at. Hey, whatever makes them happy. :) Win win!

Aren’t they gorgeous?

They actually chose the poses for both of their group shots, and one for the entire family. :)
