Now that the year is winding down, I am finally having a chance to share some of holiday mini sessions! We spent 3 days shooting over 20 families and couples and had so so much fun! One of those families is the Cinquino Family! I got to know Cristina through a styled shoot I did in October and let me tell you this momma is one talented baker!!! If you are EVER looking for a gorgeous custom cake, she is your lady. You can find more of her gorgeous creations on facebook! But in November, she and her family met us behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art for their mini session and it was SO fun! Her three little are adorable and we had a great time getting some new family shots of them! Check out a few of my favorites and look for more of our sessions on the blog this week!!!
For many married couples, the day the get married is one of the only times they get photos together until they have kids. Life gets busy, money tight and photos seem like one of those things that just isn't worth spending the time or money on. And while I get it, life in all of its seasons ought to be captured. It goes by so quickly and photos have a way of making us slow down and remember what a particular season of life was like. Debra and Lindsay are two people that value photos and after being married 2 years, they are still looking for ways to have their love for each other captured!
On a very windy day earlier this month, Jordan and I got to spend some time with these two walking around behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Debra hand made her flower crown and I loved how well their styled went together for this shoot! Their love for each other was evident in the first 5 minutes and the two of them were great and posing from the start which made their mini session fly by and still allowed them to get so many great images! And I mean come on! The way Lindsay looks at her wife? Swooning ya'll!
Enjoy a few of my favorites!
I remember vividly, walking up to the teller at my local PNC and hearing this sweet voice from the other side ask if she could see my ring. I showed it off, talking excitedly about how my wife has good taste in jewelry. From there we got talking about her being engaged and that I was a wedding photography and before I knew I was handing her my card, telling her to call me!
Fast forward a few months and I met Charmaine, her fiance Eric and little J behind the Art Museum for their engagement photos! From their perfectly matching outfits, their sweet love for each other and how insanely cute little J is, it was exactly what I'd hoped for! Even though little J was not so into the photos (or being away from mom and dad but she and Jordan quickly became friends!), we were able to get some really sweet images of all of them! And tell me Charmaine won't make the most gorgeous bride!!! Gah! Thank you both for trusting me and to take these photos for you and we hope you love the results!!!
Enjoy a few of my favorites from this session!
I always hope for the best weather for an engagement shoot but when a day comes and the forecast says a high of 10 degrees, you email your couples and ask if they want to reschedule. These two, they decided to tough it out and even though they were FREEZING, they looked gorgeous. We walked around the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Waterworks and between the melting ice and Annalise blue coat, they have amazing images with so much character.
Thank you Liza and Annalise for trusting me and allowing the insane honor of photographing your engagement photos!
